First of all, be really careful when it comes to receiving anything from the media like that because they can make things sound true when they aren't. Additionally, news sources will take an empirical article as a source and use a few words, and then write a story that will grab the attention of the...

I don't know if I have written about this on this thread but I will again. I got bullied by some people who were part of a church small group who made a big deal about me breaking confidentiality in prayer requests regarding another member of the group to our adult Sunday school. However, they knew ...

Yes. She should be more tolerant. She's weird and expects other people to tolerate that weirdness. It's her problem that she needs to change. I have never put it that way but you are right, she is weird that way but that's who she is. Though we haven't spoken in years, I found a Tiktok account of h...

I think bullying in adulthood can happen for a few reasons 1. You and the other party have different ideas of what to expect going into a situation but there is very little communication. If their expectations aren't met, then they get frustrated 2. If the other party already has enough problems of ...

So, I have long heard that autism has some sort of connection to atheism, at least in so far as that an autistic individual has a higher chance of being an atheist than a neurotypical. I myself am an Atheist. Even though starting as a young child I attended a catholic school, I never bought it, and...

For years I have felt hurt, and angry and I have let people like that steal my joy and I can't do that. Rather, I am learning to accept people for who they are and not who they were. For example, a former friend of mine is someone who has absolutely no patience for people who she doesn't like or isn...

Why did your friends dump you? Why did you dump your friends? A. I have had friends dump me because 1. They meet other friends and drift apart 2. They weren't really my friends and didn't like me to start with 3. I have done and said things they dislike or disapprove of 4. I am very outspoken B. I ...

As I also said, she doesn't want to be my friend because she doesn't like that I got mad at her all the time and accused her of things that weren't true. :roll: In reality, she's extremely manipulative and I think she realized that I saw right through her and wouldn't let her get away with it. Howev...

She honestly sounds like she can be a difficult person to deal with if not wishy-washy. She also sounds like she is quite immature for her age in regards to her laughing and derogatory names like that and especially to her friends. She reminds me of a friend who I used to have a crush on during midd...

I was hanging out at the bar once with some people I knew. I said to this girl I liked she looks like Megan Fox. She then said “f**k off to me”. Is that never a good thing when a says “f**k to of to a man”? On that note I am actually meeting some people at my local pub in an hours time (not the wom...

The royal family has always had lots of problems that go beyond Princess Diana and the way she was treated so I would not be surprised if William beat up his brother. After all, look who his father is and I don't like him as he's not only killed Diana but his own mother.

On number 2: I was a client at an autism center and happened to be working on my associates degree. They knew that I wanted to be a mentor and a counselor to others on the spectrum.

I don't think I want to befriend her again because A. I can't trust her over the fact that she lied to me about some things. B. Based on the way she really feels about me? Forget it. Since it was clear that she didn't like me, she would do any say things that I would get provoked by. Things got to m...
