I live by the mantra “I am my own best friend” and channel my inner Lizzo. I think of all the positives in my life: family, friends, travels, meals out, fun plans, job... a lot of those would be ruined by a bad relationship!
Some days it’s inevitable to miss a man, but most of the time i got me 💪🏻
Also, just discovered clit suckers - definitely no man needed there!

I do have someone amazing in my life, and that's me. And I count that as a pretty big success on my personal front. And I've worked hard to be this amazing person that I am so I do feel pretty successful in that regard.

It’s been a few days since that epiphany and I’m trying to self-love but now it’s setting in.. any single women out there who have mastered self-love? How do you get over that “I wish I had someone in my life” feeling? Do you look forward to professional success when you can’t have success on personal front?

Strong, authentic relationships with family and friends, focus on and succeeding in career goals and financial independence, fitness goals be it in a gym or running or outdoor activities like rock climbing, holidays of relaxation and adventure either solo or with a friend, giving some time to giving back to others (volunteering), a steady diet of books, articles and podcasts to keep the brain ticking over, really competent masturbation, and a lover here or there who is measured on their chemistry, consideration and sexual capabilities. Having established all of this, a need for "someone in my life" has become not a need but something I would like, if it came along, and complemented what I have.

CCIV - In at $14, out at $32. I still have a small position but here’s why I sold:
1) Valuation. Lucid is going to get $20B. They have CCIV captive due to this price action. $20B at $10/sh means $70B at these prices. $70B is more than F, GM, and double BMW, Ferrari. AND people expect this to pop to $70 or even $100/sh ($140B and $200B valuation respectively).
2) Price action. I think this will dip if a merger doesn’t come on Monday. I’d be more comfortable at a $40-50B valuation

Hey all - I just need someplace to talk about what I have been struggling with and kind of have it in control now..still working on it. I am the type of person that doesn’t do well living in an isolated area. Not because I hate people but as an introvert I tend to crawl into a ball more. When I was working in office it kept the balance in check - I was in office a few days a week and it kept me talking to people and not losing myself. Than Covid and I worked from home 💯 like everyone else.
