I mean ppl have a tendency to view a result & trace it back to something they previously predicted. When they're wrong they avoid this exercise or do mental gymnastics to argue that what they were wrong about didn't actually come from their gut -- which is always right. How do not fall prey to that?

depends on the person I guess, many things can color a person's view of others, sometimes it can be deep distrust that can make you paranoid. me personally, my inuition has always been spot on and everytime I ignored it I regretted that very much. For me it's not a gut feeling, I get very vivid dreams that are sort of clairvoyant you can say.

Am i an idiot to believe a guy who was playing all along during 3 years of our relationship my people tried to tell me with prooofs that he’s cheating and now i am stuck even after 5 months of breakup 😓

Not an idiot. I am glad that you got out. Love can make your brain do the craziest mental gymnastics to justify all the bullshit. I hope your heart finds the peace you’re looking for.

What activites were you enrolled in as a kid, if any? (Sport, music, dance, etc.) Did you enjoy them?

misphire’s Profile PhotoLieutenant Sarcasm
my mom had me enrolled in gymnastics when i was rlly young and i think i recall having fun!
that’s about it, LOL.
i was in brownies and then girl guides for a bit when i got older!
kinda lame,, tbh.
we did lots of crafts.
i switched over to the royal canadian air cadets when i was about.. 14/15?
THAT was rlly fun. i was in the marching band, the drill team, i was captain of the rifle team (lul), we learned all about airplanes, i went to summer camp for 6 weeks etc.
i made a lot of friends while i was in cadets and i got to do a lot of traveling (for free).
i started horseback riding (english) when i was about 16 and i fell in love w that.
i’d probably go back to western if i ever started riding again though!
i have no interest in showing or competing.

“"yes i'm a female but i'm not a girl" lmaooo i mean i guess i understand that a trans man can be a biological female and not be called a woman but it's just funny to me, the mental gymnastics of it. it's almost as if they try to defy logic. ?” yeah this SOO respectful. Trans have feelings.

i'm not personally offended by it. it doesn't affect my life at all, and it's not as if @sweetnothings18 would purposely go out of her way to misgender people or be a general threat to trans people.
y'all are reading into all of this too much. just drop it, it's not going to change anything.

I like capitalism, does this mean I am evil? It's not perfect but I'm happy living in a capitalist society. I truly am.

If you're "truly happy" with whatever paltry lifestyle you enjoy being built on this much grief & suffering & cruelty, & more importantly with this much wealth inequality in exchange for so little scraps, then yes you are the very definition of evil.
This might seem strange to you because your evil is so banal you assume it can't be serious, but the loudest lesson of the 20th century's atrocities was precisely this banality of evil.
If you don't survive its undoing, if capitalism comes to fail you later in life & leave you in privation, it would be nothing but justice. A restoration of balance. You would deserve that ill-fortune as much as anyone can deserve hard times.
If that's what you mean by evil. I don't know what you think evil means, if you think there's an interpretation of it that leaves this attitude in some kind of grey area. tbh the mental gymnastics you guys go thru to get your hands to seem clean have always been mysterious to me.

I wanna start dance,drawing,playing guitar,maybe piano,singing and speaking some languages and some part of gymnastics and yoga and meditation and maybe writing and something else but when I start I give up or Im being so lazy to do it and dont care. I am afraid im doing that to fascinate others...

These are a lot of nice things, and I'm so sorry to hear that you like it all, and to take your hands off again. It's so sad and so wrong. Do not do this to yourself. Do something for yourself. You will see that you will feel much better then. It's a much better feeling than when you know you've given up something that attracts you. You do not have to start right now from the hardest things. Try to say that you are enrolling in a dance group, or let's say you're practicing, going to aerobics, fitness, something like that ... But just do something ... and that for yourself ... do not think what the other to think.
There, I decided to change myself, to have a healthier diet and do fitness, and for now I'm doing well. I have bad days too, but that's normal. It goes on and I go on.
Just DO NOT STAY!

Do it in silence in that case. We are so obsessed with social media that it has made us more bound to share our every move with our friends and overall other people. That somehow ends up leaving us confused about whether or not we do something solely with a purpose of impressing other people, which never should be the case. You should train your mind to grow stronger and give up less on everything, but if something just doesn't work out after a good amount of time of trying that out, maybe that's how it's meant to be. A hobby is only worthwhile if you genuinely enjoy it. 💫

Well... Life is not about fascinating others! You should find something that means to you, you have to feel that in your heart. I mean, what's the point in dancing or drawing if you're doing that for someone? Why? It makes no sense. I used to be a dancer and I can say, for sure, you're doing that just because of yourself! Who cares about others? Life is about finding yourself and it's not going to happen over night. Take baby steps and you'll see. About laziness...when you want something so bad - eventually you find a way. If you really want to do it, you do it. There are no excuses. 🍬

i feel like you can only start developing passion for things when you see progress within yourself/your work, so at least try being persistent in those activities even if you truly are doing them to impress others. one day you’ll be happy to have those skills

what do you remember about middle school P.E.? (what kind of activities did you do? what were your favorite games? what was the PE teacher like?)

HeyGuysWantStuffJustAsk’s Profile Photoeggsy
P.E. is mostly overlooked and skipped where I live. I remember though in 9th grade (which is the last year in middle school where I live) we had a cool teacher who actually made us do different stuff every time, I remember I accidentally found out I could do frontal splits during her class. She had a track set with different kinds of things to do and the last step was to try to do splits (which nobody could do since P.E. is totally overlooked here as I said) and I was surprised and slightly scared when it happened since I had not received any training and I didn't think I was flexible enough lol. Obviously that made gymnastics my favorite back then xDD

RWQ#19 : Do you like extreme sports (like parachuting, rock/ice climbing, surfing... any sport involving high risks) ? Have you ever tried one ?

roxsweirdquestions’s Profile PhotoRox's weird questions
Well I did gymnastics & cheerleading. I know most people wouldn't think of it, but I consider it an "extreme sport." Which cheerleading, you're literally throwing girls in the hair hoping to catch them & not break each other's necks. With gymnastics, you're doing so many flips on bars, the floor, or even on a 4 inch wide bean that's 4 feet off the ground.
