I am 21 and im a girl.. i don't usually do this but i feel u can understand me .. i used to be an extrovert but people always take it from a negative perspective like im being too nice .. and someone said to me "i don't wanna be an extrovert like u to not let people have a wrong impression of me"

That’s pretty harsh of folk to have said that about you; you can be a genuinely good soul, have honourable intentions and be either an introvert or an extrovert. The way you draw upon energy shouldn’t have any impact on people’s perceptions of you, and it’s sad that they’ve made you feel like being an extrovert is a bad thing, as it truly isn’t. It’s not fake in the slightest.
There’s nothing wrong with the way you are, and we need more people like you in the world, those with pure hearts and want to spread joy to others. It’s easier said than done I know, but don’t let anyone make you feel bad for being the way you are. It’s a reflection of their own insecurities, and nothing to do with you at all. You keep being you bud, you’re lovely 🤗✨

post 5 facts about your child ❤️

✨ He is very happy and will smile at/wave at random people when walking past them in the street.
✨ He has never stopped moving. Ever. Even when I was pregnant with him we could never get a clear ultrasound image.
✨ Most of his favourite music is by a 70s pop rock band called Bay City Rollers, but he'll listen and jam to pretty much everything.
✨ He loves words and is always writing or spelling things. When instructed to draw something, there's a good change he'll write it instead.
✨ He enjoys wearing nail polish. 💅🏼

If you had the opportunity to travel anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?

bombdiggityboo’s Profile Photo•Boo•
Off the top of my head I'd say Dublin, Ireland! The weather isn't too bad out there yet and it's beyond peak tourism season. I'm not so sure about the fall colors or not, I think we might've missed that.
TBH, I just really want to visit there! First thing I'd go see would be the castles!! 😍I sooo want my own castle, complete with a mote, draw bridge and cannons! 😁

Hiya livi! I hope you're well ☺ okay question do you think everything through before you decide what to draw and paint is do you just begin to draw something and go with the flow?

GhostGoth’s Profile PhotoEmma S
Hey Emma!! I’m good thank you, how are you?? 🤗
I tend to plan everything out before I create artwork - it’s probably been drummed into me through uni, with costume design having to be something that’s meticulously planned and researched before designing, and I think that process has carried through into my art, as well. It’s probably also natural for me too, as I like to explore concepts and ideas before working out how to translate that through my art! I quite enjoy the research aspects of it too, in truth - anything that involves scouring books always gets my vote!
How about yourself though, what’s your natural process when it comes to your art?? :)

You have seen my drawings, anyone got any suggestions on what I can draw next after I finished this one Im already working on?

JoshyHartwell’s Profile PhotoJoshy Berecz
🌷 Yeah, they're all great. I have voted.

I suggest Anime - draw an OC (create your own character). Or you can get inspirations from nature : animals, plants, and landscapes. Or listen to the sound outside, stay in a quiet room or play some music - whichever you like. And then whilst listening, start drawing what you feel or see in your head.

Augusta Davies Webster — Circe.

"The sun drops luridly into the west;
darkness has raised her arms to draw him down
before the time, not waiting as of wont
till he has come to her behind the sea;
and the smooth waves grow sullen in the gloom
and wear their threatening purple; more and more
the plain of waters sways and seems to rise
convexly from its level of the shores;
and low dull thunder rolls along the beach:
there will be storm at last, storm, glorious storm."

Man, on the other hand, has been endowed with conscious intellect that can draw the line between good and evil and be clear on the Divine messages, which open up all the roads to acquire the necessary knowledge to lead to God’s way. Man has also been graced with a strong will that helps in the process of sound decision-making and walking with firm steps on the right path.
This is what makes the struggle between man and Satan an equal one. In this fight, man has the free will to make choices amidst evil inclinations, tempting climates, and devilish suggestions. Yet, he has the means, of willpower, intellect, and conviction, to emerge victorious from this standoff, without giving in to factors of weakness or failure.

Do you think you are a young or old soul? Do you ever feel as if you don’t belong in the generation you were born in?

AdrianaRafaela98’s Profile PhotoAdriianna Rafaella
Old, but only recently. I can no longer imagine what (other than money) motivated me to go into a job I mostly hated for 30+ years, what it is like to face commuter traffic every fucking day, caring about the work "initiative" du jour and dealing with all that crap. More importantly, I see much decline around me (family members with cancer, wife with Alzhiemers, my beloved country turned to a crapfest of dishonesty and hate, run by an impetuous six year old, and quite frankly, I don't have the blind optimism of youth anymore. Somehow, this shit got real.
I'm both. I'm very jaded and I've been through a lot of trauma even though I'm only 20, so I guess that makes me an old soul. I love old music and I vibe well with people older than me. But I'm kind of a young soul too, because part of me still wants so much to have a fun, young life. Partying, traveling, etc. And I always see the best in people. So I guess I mean young as in naïve but also vibrant and fun loving and reckless.
I feel like I am a old soul do to how much knowledge I have of country music, people look at me weird or surprised when I can name off a song and the year it was released, and people find it strange that I like classic music and nothing else really
I don't know that I've ever been called an old soul, but at 22 years old I have been told I seem like a deep thinker and that I give very good advice. Possibly as a result I am the go-to confidant for four or five of my close friends (of whom some have been running their problems by me since I was 15). It could be because I draw a lot from the experiences I have had, or the perspective I take on life, or something else entirely. I don't really know. And yes. I've been called an old soul by close friends/family and mere acquaintances alike since I was in my early teens. I've always gotten along better socially and intellectually with people years older than me (or, other "old souls" around my age). When I was 20, I had a brief fling with a 38 year old, and he told me he'd regularly forget I wasn't his age. I take it as a compliment, but I think it's as much a curse as it is a blessing. There are real benefits to being able to relate socially and intellectually with your peers, and I have a really hard time doing that.
I have a very hard time relating to people my own age, it's pretty miserable. I can remember being 10 and the only people who I really enjoyed talking to were my teachers. It's still sort of that way, I've been asked to have coffee and chat by a few of my professors because they don't feel I'm operating at an undergraduate level. I can't really relate to the whole "college life" experience or people my own age because I feel like I've already moved passed that part of my life.
I was one of those kids who never really cried, and would usually sit quietly in my own corner and observe people, and I guess that made me somewhat of an anomaly at that age.

Just how in touch with your feelings are you?

For me it is very difficult to connect to my emotions. I have a lot of trapped emotions. My inner knowing tells me that they are there, but I cannot register them. I don't know what those emotions are, what are the stories behind them, etc. So mentally, I am okay. Emotionally, I am disconnected. I asked my Rosen Method therapist about a feeling that is worse than sad. I thought it might be grief, but she said it might be despair. At the time, I told her, "I don't know how that feels like." As for communication, I don't normally have the chance to talk about my feelings. Even when someone asks, "How are you feeling?" I don't know how to answer it; I would talk about what exactly I have done or will have to do. Not that I wanted to avoid the question, but because I was taught to not express my feelings, so neurologically, I never established the synaptic pathways to speak about them. Completely, absolutely out of touch. More like opposites, I can be in remembrance of something that should be hurtful to me but I am laughing about it instead, albeit nervously I am sure. I cant speak about it if I feel it, not aloud. I will focus on it inside and ruminate, never ever share once in any type of spoken word. Hold it inside, express it some other way passively. I draw a blank as well in any personal conversation or interaction - if its about me I am not there to participate. I am seeing my therapist tomorrow after avoiding her since holiday times when it all got too much, too many questions. I rather write her a letter over speaking with her, I feel like this will be a big waste of $$$ as usual.
That's only started in the last year or so, before then when asked how something made me feel I wouldn't have any idea over good/bad. I've been seeing someone and getting massages so I'm starting to be able to live in my body more lately which is helping.
My sense of despair is somewhere, and perhaps your description of "elusive" applies to me too. I am not sure if it is in my ribcage or not, because I do have very concentrated and intense emotions buried in between the bones in my ribcage. But I won't describe the emotion as light. It is sharp and loud and sour (like eating a lemon will make you squeal). Anyway, I have difficulty connecting to that emotion, but I know it is there, just can't register it, but at a mental level, I feel that it is something stronger than sorrow.
This has led me into confusing situations in therapy, because I think I'm able to talk about my feelings – I form savvy sentences in my mind and then share them with a therapist – that's connecting to your feelings right? No but seriously. For the longest time I thought that I understood stuff since I was able to express myself so good verbally. But now, I am actually starting to sense feelings bubbling up. Which is scary.

I am so sorry that you receive abuse on here. There is no need as you are always lovely and fun to everyone. ☹ Klopp is a genuinely nice guy so I'm glad too. I want to see the Toon do well although obviously not at the expense of Liverpool. The new owners will always make me uncomfortable. 🥰 X

I'm not sure where to go with this but tbh next time I'm home I'll probably go to a game with my dad

Oh yes! I loove to write fiction. I also like to draw (both irl and digit), i tried myself at producing music too and while writing lyrics part went pretty well, i am still amateur at making melody for it 🤣
I loooved drawing those "my model" books where you have bodies and you draw outfits etc, for some time i believed i might go down the fashion designer route, i even created my own clothes by the age 12 (well more like adjusted aka cut, sew, paint etc my already existing clothes).
I did try pottery and doing mozaiks etc and its cool but i wasnt too good at it so i kinda left that alone 🤣i also love diy (at some point i was making my own parfumes even) and as a kid i had idea of earnig money by selling flower bouquets to my neighbours. Sadly career ended in one day as i fell into huge cactus at somebody's doorstep and looked like a hedgehog 🙈
I am also creative at cooking. Always making up new dishes and always HAVE to add something mine like even i buy a sandwich or already made meal i HAVE to tweak it somehow like add something. If nothing else some seasoning, just so that i felt like i participated in making that meal 🤣
I am constantly creating something in very different ways and on very different topics so yeah i absolutely count myself as creative :) i am not always good at it but i do enjoy creating various things even if it's a big failure 🤣

No one knows the state of the heart better than Allah. He alone knows every thread of your heart and the desire attached to every thread. He is the Knower. He knows which strings will cause your heart to wander, and which strings will draw you back to your Lord. He knows everything. He who sits in the heavens is the One who has God. He knows you better than you So just stop with everything and degradation that will take time to happen

You’re home alone but you hear footsteps in your house, what do you do? 🥴 🎃 👻 🦇 💀 👍 🙃

redoasis2017’s Profile Photo★ ☮ ♫ Ͳҽղąçìօմʂ Ͳօʍʍąվ™ ✌ ♚ ☻
Turn around and look 👀 If nothing there go back to what i was doing 👻
Look through the door. I live in a very small house.
It comes from the neighbours.
Grab a bat and go ghost busters on their ass.
Get my flashlight and bat and give them a chance to get the hell out. At first I was a little creeped out but used to it now. They’re not evil spirits. My dogs will handle it. First, I would grab my survival knife that I keep on a shelf above my bed. I would then call 911, give them my info, and tell them there is an intruder in my home which I plan to defend myself against, then hang up. I would open the door which lead to the area of the said footsteps and listen for more sounds. Since I know my house better than this stranger, I will use that to my advantage. When the foot steps get closer I'll try my best not to get taken, but then fail and have to rely on Liam to come get me. Move into a room and lock the door, then quietly wait for more footsteps. If they continue, I'll call the police and wait patiently for them to arrive. Even if I have a weapon, I'd rather not risk a confrontation- it's best to leave it to the professionals.
Grab my baseball bat and hide near my door. If the person tries to enter my room I can disorient them and try to take any weapon they might have.
Shakily grab my crossbow and hope that whoever is in my house can't tell that I'm too weak to draw it and there are no tips on my bolts. I'd screw on a bolt-tip, but I'd crossthread the shit out of it in the dark.
Find that long flat head screw driver in my room, roll into a dark corner, and strike when I see something!
Dark clothes, work type boots, gloves and I don't really picture the face or anything. Just like a dark figure. Other times I imagine some type of ghost. But it's usually just my cat getting into something at 3:00am.

How did your parents fail in preparing you for adulting?

We had no guidance. We just drifted. It's a miracle that my siblings and I all became successful and stayed out of trouble.
My parents never prepared me for anything. I still don't know how money works. I remember being about 6 or 7 and looking at my father and thinking if that's what it's like to be a father I never want to be one. And looking at my parents and thinking if that's what it's like to be married I never want to do it. I've never been married and I don't have any children.
They taught me how to think for myself. Every question I asked when I was younger, the answer would start out with "well, let's think about it..." and included questions so that I could draw my own conclusion. Because of this, I found that I am much quicker than most to understand people's motives, figure out directions, and make a decision.
Both my parents were overweight and never exercised and they wondered why I (out of three siblings) wound up overweight. They also had my older siblings do soccer but gave up on that when I came around. They also didn't have friends so I had no good examples as far as socializing went. My father never taught me how to shave properly either, just handed me an electric razor that always left my face red. I think I resent the fact my father never did any tradition father-son activities with me such as: fishing, camping, hiking motorcycle riding, car repair, cooking, hunting, etc.
My parents grew up with nothing and life was hard for them. But they tried to provide us with everything and made life as easy and as comfortable for us as possible. It made all of us very lazy and self-indulgent. As the youngest, I snapped out of it early on because I hated my sisters so much while growing up that I strived to be the opposite of them. My sisters are now middle aged but they are still unbelievably lazy and self-indulgent. And they will complain constantly if they have to work a little hard. I do catch myself slipping into old habits now and then but I manage to catch myself most of the time and correct myself.
They do too much for me. I never get a chance to cook because mom's too concerned I'll make a mess or that we'll have a subpar dinner one night and starve or something. Any time I ask for help, they take it as a cue to do the entire task for me rather than answer the question I ask. They give me no incentive to move out because they're scared I'll have to deal with roommates I won't like, or end up living in a bad part of town.
I never had the chance growing up to build that social circle of friends a lot of people had or develop my social skills, I got into the mindset of "Why make friends and get attached? I'm not going to be here very long." And for the most part that was true, we would live in a location for a month to 6 months and move. He worked a lot of temporary jobs and couldn't find enough work back then to get things steady.

Quel est votre sport favori ?

Soccer!! I used to play soccer SOOO much when I was younger. I have stopped for a really long time though, I almost never play it and it makes me kinda sad. I'm planning on doing something about that once winter ends though. I'm really good at goaltending but I'm sure I'm going to need a lot of practice to regain my skills. I've only recently started getting into watching soccer. I used to watch basketball and have watched hockey all my life though. Love those sports too.
I grew up in Alabama, which has no professional team. The university teams (especially Auburn University & University of Alabama) are the highest level, and I actually like watching them better. Going to a game live is really fun. The cheerleaders actually lead cheers with signs and the "mic man" (male cheerleader who uses a PA so the student section can hear and cheer along). Also, I like the halftime shows better (which they don't show on TV because of music copyrights issues) because I'm a former marching band geek.
Play: Basketball. It's basically the only thing I know how to play at a high enough level. (Too skinny to play football most of my life, hate soccer, too weak to actually play baseball, and chose track & field over playing volleyball.) Plus getting a neat little dopamine rush when scoring a lot or doing really impressive things like defensive stops or pinning someone's layup on the backboard, that's also nice.
It's a sport that's still in it's infancy. We're still figuring out how the hell it's all going to work in the long term. I like following along with a sport as it goes through it's "wild west" phase. It can be a complete shit show sometimes, but it's also a mad crucible where we're figuring what actually works in combat sports.
It's a draw between AFL and basketball. Both to play and watch on tv - I don't really like going to either of the games though. AFL has too much of the crowd screaming at the umpires about what call to make whenever there is a tackle and it's always miraculously the call that will give the home team possession of the ball. Basketball is kind of spoiled by the announcer constantly trying to hype up the crowd. I think tennis is my favourite sport to watch live.
I don't like playing sports or watching them, but if I have to, I'll watch hockey or basketball because they move quickly. Hockey in particular. Watching a full football, soccer, or baseball game is like torture to me. I mean, if we're talking less-conventional sports, I used to be good at archery and skeet shooting. And I'd rather watch some kind of auto racing than any ball-based sport. And there's nothing like taking a nap to a game of golf on a lazy sunday.

Karma does come around

Maybe yes and maybe no.
What's your point?
Do you have scientific evidence that "Karma" actually exists? Or is Karma simply a universal principle that reinforces the concept: "do unto others what you would have them do unto you" or perhaps Karma is a variation of the theme: "those who live in glass houses should not throw stones?" Or perhaps Karma is described by Newtons First Law of Motion: "A body at rest remains at rest, or, if in motion, remains in motion at a constant velocity unless acted on by a net external force."
Then again, maybe Karama is a variation of the "Law of Attraction."
The Laws of Attraction:
Advocates suggest there are central universal principles that make up the law of attraction:
Like attracts like: This law suggests that similar things are attracted to one another. It means that people tend to attract people who are similar to them—but it also suggests that people's thoughts tend to attract similar results. Negative thinking is believed to attract negative experiences, while positive thinking is believed to produce desirable experiences.
Nature abhors a vacuum: This law of attraction suggests that removing negative things from your life can make space for more positive things to take their place. It is based on the notion that it is impossible to have a completely empty space in your mind and in your life. Since something will always fill this space, it is important to fill that space with positivity, proponents of this philosophy say.
The present is always perfect: This law focuses on the idea that there are always things you can do to improve the present moment. While it might always seem like the present is somehow flawed, this law proposes that, rather than feeling dread or unhappiness, you should focus your energy on finding ways to make the present moment the best that it can be.
How to Practice:
According to the law of attraction, you create your own reality. What you focus on is what you draw into your life. It suggests that what you believe will happen in your life is what does happen.
Some things that you can do to incorporate the law of attraction into your own life include:
Be grateful
Visualize your goals
Look for the positives in a situation
Learn how to identify negative thinking
Use positive affirmations
Reframe negative events in a more positive way
While the law of attraction may not be an immediate solution for all of life's challenges, it can help you learn to cultivate a more optimistic outlook on life. It may also help you stay motivated to continue working toward your goals.

Good Morning Darren, ty for likes and coins, very generous, big game vs Citeh , a win big statement for either side , maybe a draw ?

princessali6’s Profile PhotoMáire Ní Einstein
That's okay my friend! Hope you're okay! I don't mind, I always give coins away to my favourite people! I know and it's going to be very tough. I still think City are the best team in England. They beat us for the first time in years at Anfield, despite most of our first 11 missing on the day. The point is they finally won so they know now that they can do it. I'll settle for a draw though. If we play at our absolute best and they have an off day....we have a chance! Newcastle will beat Wolves tomorrow! 🥰 X

What should I do if I fall in love with you ?

Intoxicated by the Wine of Love.
From each a mystic silence Love demands.
What do all seek so earnestly? ‘Tis Love.
What do they whisper to each other? Love.
Love is the subject of their inmost thoughts.
In Love no longer ‘thou’ and ‘I’ exist,
For Self has passed away in the Beloved.
Now will I draw aside the veil from Love,
And in the temple of mine inmost soul,
Behold the Friend; Incomparable Love.
He who would know the secret of both worlds,
Will find the secret of them both, is Love

do you have a hobby that you miss doing? 🎨🎶📝🎭

nurbzee’s Profile Photonurulhuda
Fly tying, and model building. But I'm too busy painting my house inside and out to get involved in anything else.🙁
Existing without headaches/migraines.
I miss being able to hang out with my friends. Especially my girlfriend. We had just started dating a few weeks before schools got shut down, and I can't drive yet to go meet her somewhere. I just wish I could have the ability to see her at school, but she is still doing online school until the second semester.
Going to the movies. Eating shitty popcorn and overpriced drinks. People noisily munching away at their refreshments but who cares? it’s all part of the experience. Some random kids sneaking in to a 15+ movie and then being dragged out by members of staff. Wonderful.
Duck hunting. If you have never done it, there is no rush like it. It takes real skill to navigate a river/lake/swamp in the pitch black, set up decoys, call in ducks, shoot them, and then have a properly trained dog to fetch them. If you ever have the opportunity to go, take it, you will be hooked.
I have two main hobbies now; motorcycling and playing the guitar. I have some other things I like doing but I'm not sure I consider them hobbies as I dont think about them when I'm not doing them. Things like playing video games, going walking, that sort of thing. My wife doesnt have any hobbies, and I've tried to encourage her to get into something but she just doesnt seem to make that push, to get so invested in something. She does have interests though, like fitness and cooking. I feel bad sometimes because I wan to just devote a couple of hours to learning a peice of music, or go out for a long ride, and she doesnt have anything to do. I just have this image she;s sitting doing whatever she can until enough time has passed that she has something important to do (like sleep, or go to work).
I have a couple that I partake in, but I usually dedicate more time to some opposed to others. For example, my most ardent hobby is collecting and shooting guns. I am always at the shooting range at least once every single day.
Honestly I have several hobbies but they aren't all things I keep up on constantly. I draw, I do makeup, I read, I play video games. I usually obsess over one for a few months then move on to another to obsess on for a few months. If I worked on all of my hobbies every single day I would never have any time to work or do anything I have to do.
I have a lot of hobbies that I feel invested in and I'd like to keep up with. From who I've talked to, however, it seems like it's normal to not have a hobby or to only have one or two. People who I've talked to that have multiple hobbies also don't seem that invested or have easily manageable hobbies. I'm wondering how many hobbies is normal.

What do you drink most?

klonetron’s Profile PhotoHalbery Jones
For some, it can mean happiness or at least numbness in the present moment. Some simply feel like they don't care - but they always do once consequences begin to mount up. I'm called to see alcoholics presenting with suicidal ideation most days of the week - often because they've become homeless or had relationship breakdowns. If not, it'll be the liver failure before you even have a chance to retire. Alcohol can be a really nasty thing, and it's criminal that we don't have good school education surrounding it. IMO, it's worse than many illegal drugs. But there are a multitude of services out there, to help get off the sauce in a safe way - and also to help your emotional pain. It can take time to figure out what's best for you, but it will be worth it. See a doc if you want to stop, because they'll provide you with advice and sometimes temporary medications to make sure you withdraw without danger. But despite all of the draw backs I am addicted. I managed to go a month without drinking once. I thought it was easy. Then I had some events to go to so I thought "well it was easy enough last time. It will be easy again"
I don't think about drinking at all until I'm on my way home and I remember to stop and get more beer. For me, it's not a nagging feeling or a craving, it's just like any other errand anyone else would run. Put gas in car, get cash from the ATM, pick up milk and eggs, get beer. Drinking feels compulsory to me at this point. That being said I do recognize that I have a drinking problem, I guess I'm just not at rock bottom yet.
I usually drink between 6-8 drinks a night. Some nights is 8-12. I also smoke weed. I always make sure to get 6-9 hours of sleep a night. I always wake up tired but rarely hungover. I enjoy the same entertainment most people aged 6-60 enjoy. I don't know what your asking but I think I handle myself pretty well for an alcoholic in denial.
I didn't drink at all, and for most of my life I swore that I would never touch alcohol or any drugs because my father is an alcoholic and it never fails to put a damper on my life. For most of my life alcohol was just associated with family troubles, and I only had one experience where a drunk family member forced Budweiser down my throat and I thought it tasted awful. Then I came to college. I just got done with my first year and things change. Drinking and partying is very fun, and it's important to take the time to enjoy these early years and experiment and figure it all out. The main reason that I am now not so afraid to drink is because I have finally become comfortable enough with myself to say that I am not my father and I have self control. Also I never drink too much, just enough to have fun.
As far as amounts, I have no clue. I've filled half the cup with vodka or with one shot and it basically tastes the same. But usually I do the equivalent of about 2 or 3 shots and then fill up the rest of the cup with orange crush.

What are your thoughts about making mistakes? And what if you’re the one making a mistake? Like how do you deal with them? ☺️

LunarHuntress’s Profile PhotoYentl
Nobody is perfect and anyone can make a mistake. The point is to learn from mistakes and learn from what has gone wrong. If we don't learn from our mistakes or we don't learn from other people's mistakes, we will live in stagnation and we will never learn anything.
There is a saying: A wise man after a harm (after making a mistake) Unfortunately, sometimes people are just as stupid both before making a mistake and after making a mistake, because they do not draw conclusions from what happened

How do you deal with violent thoughts if you ever had any?

Muhamed162’s Profile PhotoContradictory•Out
Excuse the long answer coming ahead :"
Types of violent thoughts I usually have and How I deal with them:
1. Being vendictive towards people who hurt me but I still care about (verbally aggressive to be exact)...
I know exactly what to say to each person that would most likely hurt them and once those words form in my mind, I hold myself back using the following:
_ Remembering how much that person means to me.
_ Imagining if they died or anything bad happened to them, how would that make me feel, and how insignificant whatever they did seems to be compared to loosing them.
_ Reminding myself of the few times I did avenge myself like that and how terrible it felt just 5 seconds later.
_ Eventually trying to broaden the space between myself and them if they provoke such thoughts too often and might bring out the worst of me. Sometimes leaving is the best way to maintain a nice relationship.
2. Violent thoughts towards myself...
At the lowest moments when I think about hurting myself, I try to get out of my own head and be around people for as long as I can.
I don't talk about it, try not think about it, and just feel the safety of not being alone with myself.
3. Vendictive thoughts towards strangers of equal strength or resources as mine...
I usually ask myself the following questions:
_ Are they worth being even slightly upset?
_ Will my actions make any difference?
_ Was what they did intentional and does it seem like a habitual behavior?
If the answer to all of them is no, I just walk away and forget about it.
If the answer to the last two questions is yes, I don't hesitate to turn thoughts into actions (the actions are far more mild than the thought though).
4. Violent thoughts towards oppressors/cowards who've misused their power to hurt me and still do so to others...
I don't allow myself to let it go, I just put effort into moving on and becoming the best, strongest version of myself. So that when the right opportunity comes, I get to choose whether to take action or grant forgiveness.
5. Random violent and slightly homicidal thoughts...
I get those very often, yet I'm the most peaceful person I know (too nonviolent sometimes) and that in itself is concerning.
And my way to deal with them is usually ignoring them entirely.
However, I have a friend I can talk to about these things. We literally draw detailed scenarios of "being extremely violent" towards certain people.
If anyone reads parts of our chat out of context, they would be extremely appalled! :"
Reading back what I just wrote, I seem to have so much aggressiveness under this calm, peaceful exterior.
Hopefully this answer won't make a suspect should any murder occur in my circle! :/

How tech-savvy would you say that you are? Do you for example know what do to if a piece of tech is acting up in some way? 📱💻🧠

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I think that I was a lot more tech-savvy when I was 13 to 15 years old. I loved to meddle with gadgets' system. I remember rooting my phone and tweaking it to change a lot of things including overclocking it. And when it gets into a non-stop restarting when I start my phone (which is called a boot-loop), I knew how to fix that and undo all my system changes.
Same for my PSP. My PSP was the coolest among my friends'. I could use the joystick and the R trigger button to draw on my XMB menu (home screen), turn the screen dosplay 180° upside down, categorize games into folders, have my own custom boot animation and XMB menu (even looking like an XBox menu), save games at any state I wish to and then able to continue the game any time later, rip the games off the UMD on the PSP itself without the need of a PC and many more. Of course, just like the mobile phones, things could go wrong. I may end up with a boot loop, or totally render my PSP useless. The term for this was 'bricked PSP'. However, I could still fix this by making a 'magic battery'. This magic battery can be made by opening up the battery and soldering the wires in it or, as how I did it, the battery can be programmed via a PC, but we'll need a working PSP for this, since ours is already bricked.
Man, was I good at it. Ah, good old days.

Can a war end in a draw? When could this happen?
There is a card game called "War". The game would end in a draw if the opponent had exactly the same playing cards of a different suit
Istnieje gra w karty pod nazwą "Wojna".
Gra zakończyłaby się remisem, gdyby przeciwnik miał dokładnie takie same karty do gry tylko w innym kolorze

What kinds of conversations do you like the most? What makes them so great? 💬

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Deep and thought-provoking concersations where I can dig deep with the person I'm talking with. I used to work as a salesman for a fibre optic broadband company, and went from door to door in an area and selling the solution to private homes. There are no simple way to keep a conversation interesting because people are different, but asking open ended questions: What, why, when, how were my friends. And very often i got a signature and sale by just small talking with the customers, and the conversation were often about what they were interested in and not the fibreoptic broadband solutions i sold.
The most interesting topics are romance, intrigue and sex. Ask someone about their first crush, then share yours. People are engaged when you speak of dates, preferences, building relationships, etc. - it's an unending well of conversation.
If I want to avoid any awkward silences I ask the other person or people something about themselves. I've found that most people never tire of talking about how interesting they are, and in most cases they're right -- most people are pretty interesting once you get to know them.
I make eye contact, encourage the other person to fill in details, and, when I think they're done with their part, I offer something either directly or tangentially related. I also try to keep my "statements of fact" to a minimum so as to encourage the other person to add their piece to it.
With strangers this is more difficult of course. However, if you consider somewhere your friend you should know them on a surface level. All it takes is finding a mutual interest or learning about their interests and becoming genuinely interested in what they're up to. I have friends where I know they watch the same sport and that's essentially all I talk to them about. It's just having something in common eases the conversation into a flow.
It's worth noting that most people aren't very good at conversations with people they aren't the best associated with. This causes them to be oftentimes reserved, being taught socially to stay on safe topics (How are you, hows the weather...). Your job is to draw them out. Also, use your judgement well- Most of the time if your partner seems reserved it's cause they're shy and not used to conversing with people like this normally. However, just be careful that you're not intruding upon a time when they'd rather be alone.
