I despise that victim mentality because it flares up in me in my own life. I usually hate what I perceive to be flaws in myself, so that's what I write into my own characters, just heavily exaggerated. I still want them to come out of that funk, so I create circumstances that guide them through that journey (or at least part of it). Gives me insight in how to iron those quirks out of myself.
    That's very interesting. I tend to write characters that I see over time as they are developed as their own people, although one can't escape putting shades of themselves here and there into their characters. Aaannd... I don't know if I'm comfortable enough with my own perceive flaws to put them anywhere outside my brain haha.

    I'm happy that adults at my job (substitute teacher) give me positive feedback. I'm strict and kids are just insane these days. So I feel like a monster that won't just let go. I'm looking for jobs that aren't in the classroom. I had a near-breakdown two weeks into a long-term subbing job. For now though I'm still subbing. I haven't been doing well either, having bad thoughts. I'm better this very second, but I dunno.

    Person C: “OMG! You’re a biased, low-information voter who believes in fake news!”

    Turns out that person C reads only opinion pieces, articles, etc. and believes truth claims from the political team he already supports. And folks from all sides of the political spectrum aren’t immune.

    I hope you are able to find a job that suits your needs and helps you improve your mental health.

    Am I scared? I am terrified. I don't know of what. I know of what. I am terrified of humility. Oh. . . to claim that silly thing back. True humility. did I have it? To an extent I did. I did. I was humble. And then what happened? I don't know. Something happened. Something unknown. Some kind of a turning against oneself and I thought humility was a weakness. It could have been far bigger than all their assaults but do I have it, do I have humility in my skin? In my heart? Am I grateful? Am I angry? I really don't know. The prospect of going through alternating humility and anger . . . what hell it was!!! No. I can't resort to humility just yet. Must assert the ego first. Humility of one who does not have substance and forgiveness of a snake that does not have venom are pointless. People assume too much substance too easily. It has to be claimed first. Humility would come later. Must have enough ego to protect one's humility.

    I've become wary of people who always claim 'good' intentions to avoid taking responsibility for anything--like 'I meant to turn up to work on time' or 'I meant to turn in my submission before the deadline.' Intentions mean squat. A person who always has an excuse for everything while claiming good intentions--his actions reflect otherwise--cares only about doing his own thing and getting what he wants but doesn't want to lose face or take responsibility for how his self-serving behaviour affects others.

    Thanks :). I work as a tutor and I'm thinking a good pivot would be to a) tell them I'll take ALL the hours instead of just Saturdays, and b) maybe find more tutor companies to suppliment those hours.

    Intentions are everything. Intentions inform your actions, if a person doesn't intend to show up on time then they won't. If a person does intend to show up on time then the actions they take will be ones that they think will lead to them showing to work on time. If they then fail to do so after making the effort then they shouldn't be treated like they're slovenly, because that just isn't true. Sometimes we do our best but things are completely out of our hands. Punishing someone for events they couldn't control is unfair and pointless.

    Notice how I said “Intentions mean squat” in the context of the *entire* paragraph that more than once mentions the word “always”, so the proper interpretation isn’t “Intentions are never relevant”: it’s “(Good) Intentions mean nothing when you constantly make excuses for actions that reflect something different.” It’s obvious I wasn’t talking about isolated incidents. Yes, some hard-working people can fail to show up on time on rare days because they have a good reason (not an excuse), but if somebody fails to turn up to work on time every day and constantly misses deadlines—excuses are different every time—then most likely it’s a matter of dishonesty and possibly the lack of a good work ethic.

    I haven't gone out to the city in a hot minute, and normally by now I'd be feeling a little depressed about it. But I've been having fun with the right people in my own town to the point where I haven't missed it at all. Which is funny to me since just a month or so ago I was so sick of it here I was contemplating moving downtown. Now I don't know why I ever wanted that.

    Just goes to show how much a different set of people can even change your view of where you're living.
