    There’s nothing wrong with wearing nice trousers to a wedding. Regardless of sexuality, not all women like wearing dresses, particularly in the winter. I’ve worn light blue / grey trousers to a wedding with a blouse, and I don’t think anyone thought anything of it.

    Really pisses me off to see some younger members of the LGBTQ community treat older members like plebs (not directed at anyone here, just having a rant about something I read).

    Actually, we DO know what we are talking about and have been through struggles that you will never imagine... and we're not over the hill when it comes to the fun side of life either.

    I've been thinking over the last few days that I'll either end up in a prison cell or a psych ward if shit doesn't change :confounded:

    There is a status red weather warning where I live. We don’t usually have dangerous weather the warnings are usually a lot of rain or strong winds. Storm Barra is causing havoc in my county and a neighbouring one. Over 56000 homes are without power and winds are reaching up to 150 miles per hour. The noise outside is deafening. Schools and businesses are closed and there is risks of flooding. Apparently the wind toppled a truck earlier and everyone is warned to stay indoors. I’m all for staying in but what am I supposed to do with a little dog who needs to do their business outside who would probably blow away in the wind from the mountain we live in. She also loves making a racket at night during storms. But other than the possible danger it’s the most excitement I’ve had all year and a great reason for living my introvert dreams where I don’t leave my house. I’m a little worried about a power outage but I’ve charged everything and I’ll download stuff to watch in case the internet goes down.

    I'm going through some things I wish I didn't had to go through.
    I think I owe someone an apology, but don't want the other to think I'm just trying to get his attention by apologizing.
    Hell, at times I don't even know myself if my 'awful character' is indirectly leading me to manipulating people.

    All in all, it remains a mystery if I'm a horrible person after all.

    Need more exercise, but too cold to get outside and don't feel like it.

    Trying to explain to my (vaccinated) mother how vaccines work is an exercise in futility. She believes that the vaccine for COVID-19 doesn’t lessen your chances of getting it but just lowers the severity of it. No vaccine is 100% effective, it sounds like she took that as 100% ineffective. Her anti- vax friends on Facebook aren’t helping.

    What's stopping me from sticking to a schedule? Why do I veer off my own script after following it so well, after a couple of days of following it successfully? How can I organise myself to the point where I can keep to it? I find that if I organise myself too much, I end up with nothing done at all. Why am I in a fight with myself over this? Why do I keep sabotaging myself, when I do not want to do so? How can I be kinder to myself, allowing leeway, whilst also keeping myself accountable?

    :confused::thinking:

    I'm quite sure you are not a horrible person. We all make mistakes which upon reflection we wish we would not have done.

    Try not to worry about what the other person is going to think. If you feel you owe them an apology, you could try speaking with them.

    As 2021 comes to a close, I feel good about 2022.

    Think it'll be the year I finally move out.

    And a two year pandemic has taught me that some of my relatives just have trash opinions. Think '22 might be the year I finishing coming out to the family. The ones I am emotionally and geographically close to took it well, just gotta rip off the bandaid for the rest. 2022

    Thinking about having to finish my Christmas shopping and hoping to get everything delivered before the big day. Also hoping nothing gets lost forever in the mail or stolen since that becomes more common during the holiday season.

    Also, I'm getting my covid booster tomorrow. Good thing I have the day off work Monday since I'm planning to get sick that day, due to the vaccine side effects kicking in after 24 hours later, for some reason.

    Most years I have my presents bought wrapped and under the tree by now. This year I haven’t. I hope my mother really meant it when she said she wanted a beginners painting set with canvas and all. She thought it would be expensive so she would buy it herself. Found plenty of all inclusive kits on Amazon and the kit, some canvas boards and extra paint brushes are on their way. If she wants an easel she can get that herself. It’s actually not that expensive, definitely within my budget. I hope she remembers the conversation when she wanted it, instead of the many times she wanted specific pottery.

    My afternoons have became so exhausting, not sure if it’s the weather, the getting dark at 5:30 pm, or just me. It’s not even 6 pm yet and I’m feeling ready for bed.

    Do you ever feel like the world isn't on your side? When I came out I thought that I would be accepted and as much as I wanted to be I just realized that the community that I thought was so great and grand was filled with dram and people that want to have random hook ups. I feel like I just don't trust easily because I have been walked on so much in life. I just want to find someone that is homebody and has good conversations.... I was told by my ex girlfriend that I don't look lesbian like what does that even mean? What does lesbian look like? Is this why I have such a hard time getting out there because I don't 'look' like a lesbian. I just feel so alone.

    Whatever it means, it says more about her than it does about you, possibly that she has her own issues or that she said it with intent to you upset you in some way, and it’s entirely unfounded.

    How long have you been single? It may be good to spend some time healing and building up your own self-esteem.
