There are days I think I’ll have been a success if I get off this planet without killing anyone. I don’t know what my question is. I don’t know what I want you to say. I just needed to get that out.
Your standards are a bit low. As for your question, what you’re really asking is, “Why am I filled with so much anger?” I don’t know the specific answer in your case, but I can say for sure that you’ll have been a success if you get off this planet having come to terms with the source of that anger.
Married. Children. Crush/in love with someone else that I can never be with. More depressed than I’ve ever been. Losing my mind. Selfishly sending you this because you have to read it and I cant tell anyone else. I don’t have a question. Sorry.
You desperately need a therapist, preferably the type who specializes in relationships, like an MFT, or a couples counselor who also takes on individual clients. Go do that for yourself. I know you think you’re a piece of shit, but you’re not. You need someone to talk to, and you really do deserve some help.
I’m in my last quarter of college and single for the first time in my adult life. Currently weighing two dudes and want your recommendation for this life stage: seriously hot asshole with a big dick or stellar personality guy with a small one?
Both. I’m totally serious. Not only can you date both. You should date both, especially if this is your last quarter of college. Don’t try and boyfriend-up a few months before graduation. That’s a recipe for bad decisions.
Can people go through completely life-altering events like the death of a loved one and still be materialistic or superficial? Can people reach enlightenment without facing a metaphorical or physical death?
First question: very easily, yes. Second question: no, because enlightenment is itself a certain kind of death.
What are your thoughts on how the presidential race is shaping up? And do you think Cruz or Trump is scarier?
Cruz is much, much scarier. I would honestly rather have Trump as president, if but for no other reason than (and I know this sounds crazy) his Supreme Court nominees wouldn’t be bible-banging wingnut conservatives.
What was the first album you bought?
Little Earthquakes by Tori Amos. I remember being so excited that I showed it to my piano teacher. I wanted to learn how to play some of the songs, but he scolded me for listening to music that was too adult for my ears. I stopped taking piano lessons shortly thereafter.
