    Post your random thoughts/feelings etc

    Yeah I know how you feel and I don't know if I should try to give advice on this, since I have a hard time myself staying calm in confrontational situations, but here's the few tricks I found so far to keep a certain control: Before the meeting, try to put your ideas in order so that they come...

    Well what I meant is that the intention is threatening to another human being's well being. In your example, the outcome is life saving, but the intention was threatening. That's why you know you cannot trust this person. Their good deed was a mistake. He's not a hero, he's lucky (or unlucky...

    Religious debate

    But suicide is not a taboo in many other religions. It's mostly catholics that condemn it. I think the main reason why people are against the idea of suicide as a valid option is because it cannot be undone and the result is death.

    I want to move out of the city

    Good question, I ask myself the same. I did move to a village once, I hated it, I went back to the city where I can be anonymous and don't have to be part of a community. I've been contemplating the idea again lately, I even explored a new area about 1 or 2 hours away from the city, and realized...

    You've reach the limits of my english capacities a couple of times in that post so I had to read it more that once. I think I get what you mean when you say it's easy to fall into the trap of thinking your thoughts are worth sharing. I think I fall into the opposite trap though. I usually delete...

    Your posts are always interesting and insightful vj so don't keep yourself from posting because someone disagree with you or because you're unsure about your words. Disagreement can make a conversation take an interesting new path that it wouldn't have taken otherwise, and so does incomplete ideas.

    I see I'm not the only one feeling that way. Well, about your friend who has very non-pc views, I think there is as much opinions as there is shades and colors in this world and that would be very naive of each of us to think that our personal opinion is the right one. So I don't care that...

    Ok I'll admit I'm in a very mysanthropic time of my life, but still, humankind is NOT a great specie. Not compared to what it could be. I might be a sociopath magnet because I look naive, but to me it seems that every man who approaches me just want something from me and will lie and manipulate...

    How are you feeling?

    I think it's a natural feeling that most people feel. That is why they say that human is a social animal. And that I'm clearly not human. Just kidding. It's probably better if you have a wide enough range of acquaintance or friends that you can call to hang out with or do activities in order to...

    Post your random thoughts/feelings etc

    Well I admit I've been over-working in the last weeks but that's because I had to do a course at the same time. I rarely go as far as cutting on sleep though. When I get to the point where the bunny is, I just go to sleep even if I'm not done. But of course I had to cut all my exercise time and...

    Constant dressing down on Facebook

    Social media is toxic and time consuming, if it makes you unhappy I would suggest to just stop using it

    Anxiety at work

    I think most people here tend to assume, most of the time, that if there is a relationship or communication issue, they are the problem. But other people have their problems too and it's astonishing, when you take a good look around you, how many people have no or little control over their...
