2023.02.03 05:00 CiwiKing We can live life less lonely? - how nice wouldn't that be? #loneliness #depression #suicide #trauma

Hi and welcome to a new community here on reddit. Right now I am the only member, (I hear the echoing of the abandoned heart beating from my chest) so hopefully someone else will join? (and hopefully soon) ;)
I would like very much to create a place where you can come when you feel lonely (too lonely) and you don't know where to turn.
I am not selling anything, but my children told me about reddit to be a nice and friendly place to start a community, so here I am. Life can be very simple if we let it.
I look around this world and I see too much loneliness. In truth: we are everyone; alone.
We are born alone and we die alone, we all know this...but being "alone" and being "lonely" is not the same thing....we all know that, right?
We can feel it.
Yeah.
It can be nice and perfectly fine to be alone...but when we after a while start feeling lonely, and even lonelier - our mind: our state of mind, it changes.
Many of us lack the tools to draw force and energy from that feeling of loneliness and it grows into a deeper feeling, similar to that of abandonment, and this is the phase on that interior journey that some of you are on, where I'd like you to find this space.
Breath, exist and begin a new journey right here, right now: a journey inwards, towards your inner true being, a journey where YOU are your own guide, guru & devotee.
A journey that you are fully capable to make (even though it might not feel like it) and that will give you something that you might not yet have: true and genuine self-trust.
Self-trust is not self-confidence, in fact we don't need self-confidence.
Self-trust is not self-esteem, in fact we don't need self-esteem.
What we need though is self-trust...when we have gained access to our own self-trust, no one can then take it away from us.
Self-esteem and self-confidence is fed from outside of you, whilst self-trust comes from within, it is something you yourself have already withing, and that you can gain full access to, simply by living life.
_ _ _
I am just putting down a few lines here rather spontaneously, so you will have something if and when you come here.
Please know that you can become your own best friend, your own best lover and your own best parent . We really do not "need" anyone else and it can actually be rather useless to "be with someone else" before we have "been with our true self". And this is because we will be able to connect with a partner or a spouse or another person and being only once we have found a true and direct connection with our self.
This means that if we stay in a relation with someone that also "hasn't yet met him/hethemselves/etc", no one in that relationship is really connecting with the other.
Most people have these types of relationships, due to the misconception about loneliness and a misunderstanding of how "connection" really functions.
If you are alone and feeling lonely, I'd like for you to know and draw wisdom from knowing that being in such a relationship with another individual and being is 100% a waste of your precious time.
I don't care if you are 14 years old, 44 years old, or 84 years old - you do NOT want to invest in such a relationship. Especially when you instead have all the possibility to put all that time-investment within establishing a deep connection with your self.
You are more than gold worth because you have an intrinsic value for just being and existing, "just being and existing", as if it was nothing...a thing to take for granted...
It is not.
Today, here & now, you begin your journey inwards, towards YOUR self. It is going to be fun and teachable and very exciting and SUPER interesting.
You have only one thing to focus upon: to come with an open mind...and that's not always that easy.
_ _ _
I have to go cook for my family now, tonight we'll eat: Chili con carne (without the meat ;)) spicy hot food, served on simple white plates, in a house on the Italian country side. Tomorrow I will take everyone with me, dogs included, and go pick down all the black olives. It high time, they are very ripe!
As you see - nothing fancy here - just genuine feelings and food and people.
I do hope you will come back soon and why not write me something here, about you, or whatever you want. I think I have to set up rules or something but I will figure that part out as we go along adn just hope not too many haters will find their way here, but even so, they are humans too and most probably: VERY lonely.
We will have to see how this adventure unfolds and develops ;)
I find that to always be the best way...walking this path, living this process of life, as it presents itself, while it presents itself...with very few or no expectations and prefixed end results.
Just being glad and fulfilled by having lived another day.
Take care of your SELF/CiwiKing

2023.02.03 04:58 Express_Giraffe_7902 DAE order something like chicken piccata no pasta?

I’m in USA - tonight, I ordered from an italian spot (chicken piccata no pasta) - I’ll do fajitas at Mexican spots with no tortillas/beans/rice - ya know - order something on the menu to keep it semi-easy and then just tell them to leave the stuff I don’t want behind (or give it to coworkers/whoever is with me)
Then I usually get the “oh, what did you want to substitute? We can do a side salad or some veggies?” … I usually say no because the chicken is already plenty of food … but then I get real weird looks??? Are you sure? You don’t want more food???
Nope. Sure don’t! Haha - portion sizes are so out of whack in the US - I’m now in a small town, so I get a bunch of people giving me EXTRA chicken or mounds of guacamole - and it’s nice, but whatever extra they gave me, I usually can’t finish 🤣
Not really a complaint or anything - just an observation - US folks seem to be consumed by “MUST GET MY MONEY’S WORTH OF FOOD” - rather than just paying for a meal and enjoying it
Anybody else experience this? 🤣

2023.02.03 04:55 Shelovesclamp A really random cultural related question

So I'm curious about certain food and drink things.
For example, if someone in Italy ordered a vegetable sandwich and a coffee, what way would it be served by default? Ie, would the sandwich be a hot pressed sandwich, or would it be cold? Would the coffee automatically be espresso, or would it be drip? And if its espresso, would it be a single shot or double?
In this scenario let's assume the customer is Italian born and raised so there's no variables like "oh this is a foreigner, she probably meant to order a drip coffee, so I'll give her that".
Or would they ask if you wanted hot or cold, or if you wanted drip or espresso?
I mainly ask this because (well for one I want to travel there so it is helpful to know lmao) say in Canada, if you order a tea it's automatically a hot one unless you specified ice whereas I discovered the hard way that it's the opposite in the US 😂 I was dismayed to be given an iced one when I just said the word "tea" but quickly discovered that in the states you must specify you want a hot one 🙈😂 Likewise sandwiches here are assumed cold unless it's described in the menu as being a hot one. So I'm curious if there are defaults like this in Italy and if so, what the defaults are haha.

2023.02.03 04:27 Kapples14 DR fanganronpa concept and cast

Danganronpa Fan Idea: City of the Lost
Across the world, young and bright students who have excelled in certain fields will be recognized by their countries as Ultimates. These Ultimates will then be sent to the Buchanan Institute for Growth and Development: considered by many to be one of the most revolutionary academies in human history. With funding and support from numerous nations' governments, Ultimates will be placed into Student Bodies of 16-20 in order to form close bonds with one another in order to collaborate and hone their crafts.
This hypothetical story would follow Charlie Cabot, the Ultimate Diplomat, who was placed into the 25th Student Body who are to be sent to Buchanan's Institute via a luxury cruise ship. However, this all changes when Charlie and his class mysteriously wake up on the shores of a large city stranded in the middle of nowhere. As it turns out, the 25th Student Body have been sent to the smog-coated city of iron and stone pillars, Vongerlach City. Here, under the many piercing eyes of a mysterious masked individual known as Mr. Jupiter, the class will now be forced to participate in a game show known as the Killing Game Extravaganza, where the only way out of the city's cold clutch is to kill one of their own and get away with it. With little chance of escape, Charlie has gone from becoming a rising star and into one of many poor souls who may be snuffed out in an instant.

Ultimate Economist: Aina Masayoshi
The world of finances has never been more lively and energetic since Aina came to the scene with her hit teen magazine, Wow, Money!, that has brought economic insight to her peers and friend groups. After saving her father's multi-million dollar company from bankruptcy, Aina has become an iconic economic prodigy thanks in part to her energetic and bubbly personality. This sunny, flirtatious, fast talker is someone who is always looking to bring the best out of every situation, even if it comes from very minute or exaggerated details. She is always trying to find the best opportunity in each situation, seeing the world's darkest corners as being the untapped wells for something truly fabulous.

Ultimate Scuba Diver: Ringo Egawa
The deepest depths of the seas and lakes hold untold mysteries, but no mystery can escape the reach of the Ultimate Scuba Diver. Ever since his youngest days, Ringo's been on a personal journey to find a supposed "Great Treasure" he is certain is out there. While not the sharpest tooth in the shark's jaw, he's as loyal and sincere as they can get. Ringo's beloved in the oceanic world for his easy-going and mellow personality, but this very same lax attitude has gotten him into many bizarre and precarious situations whenever he's left to his own devices. Despite this, Ringo has been able to perform many complex activities and operations while underwater, having a keen sense of problem-solving skills whenever he puts his all into whatever he finds most important.

Ultimate Mathematician: Tora Ito
The top of the top, Tora Ito is someone who will ensure that you remember his importance. Ito's computer-like intellect is only matched by his sheer vanity and pride. Ever since he was a child, Tora has been considered by many to be the next successor to his family's research company, Ito Scientific Developments & Technological Advancements. Ito, having lived his entire life among the upper crust of Japanese society, has fallen into a strange territory within the 25th Student Body of Buchanan's Institute for Growth and Development, considering the diverse body of students ranging from his more familiar brand of upper-class citizens, as compared to those from much more modest and rural communities. Ito often prefers to remain in solitude, only socializing with those who are either on his level, or can offer something of value to him.

Ultimate Saucier???: Yoshi Yamamoto
The life of the Ultimate Saucier may be shocking to some, but Yoshi Yamamoto is a living testament to how intense the food world can be. The son of a mafia's personal chef, Yoshi has honed his craft to the absolute peak within the culinary world. Hardened to the core through his time cooking for the mob, Yoshi has long since left his criminal upbringing to share his skills with the world. Despite this, many rumors have spread that his acceptance into Hope's Peak University wasn't for his cooking skills; however, Yoshi will fiercely defend his title against any skeptics. This intimidating giant may come off as unapproachable, but deep within lies the heart of a true artist and connoisseur of culinary arts.

Ultimate Escape Artist: Aldo Adesso
From the great Pavarotti Family Circus, Aldo Adesso is the latest in a long line of experts in the performing arts that has dominated Italian culture for the last 500 years. Aldo has conquered over 100 different forms of traps, puzzles, and death-defying challenges for adoring audiences, all without suffering as much as a scar on his body. This suave and charismatic star has left the circus life to pursue a grander path in life to reshape the world of entertainment. This pursuit has enabled Adesso to adopt a wide array of skills and resources that will provide him all the opportunity he needs to ensure that his mark will be burnt into history.

Ultimate Filmmaker: Ruth Weine
After entering the film world with her dramatically intense psychological-thriller, Dreaming While Awake, Ruth has managed to create several award-winning films with a modestly-sized crew and budget. Despite her humble upbringings, Ruth was still able to find an avenue into the complex world of cinema. She is often very quite, cold, and strictly professional in all relationships, but can become quick to light up when people around her show interest in her works. She is often focused on following a strict and meticulous routine, but often tries to break free of this lifestyle to avoid falling into the same tragic fates as many great artists. Ruth can be rather strict in what she determines as good cinema, having an astute knowledge of all aspects of the filming process after working extensively in each of those positions.

Ultimate Diplomat: Charlie Cabot
It's not easy living under your parents' shadows, but it's an even greater challenge when you've outshined them. Being the son of two Hope's Peak alumni, Charlie went from being a top student to a world-renowned sensation for his incredible skills in diplomacy and gift for foreign policy. Charlie may not be very certain on whether or not he believes that he is meant to change the world, but is determined to do so for the sake of the world. As a result, he's become much more ambitious in his pursuits to unite the world, even if he's not the most passionate about it.

Ultimate Figure Skater: Nikita Sugiyama
With the grace of winter's snow, and speed of a chilling wind, Nikita Sugiyama has become a top recruit for some of Serbia's greatest trainers and coaches. This quiet and melancholic poet has made a name for themselves not only for their talents, but also for the shocking contrast to their jolly blowhard father, a well-known military hero and ambassador who has worked extensively to aid his daughter in their journey to one day compete in the Olympics. Despite being one to prefer staying out of petty conflict, Nikita has been caught up in some controversies where they spoke out on issues often bigger than what they're more capable of handling. Regardless, the Ultimate Figure Skater is still recognized for their graceful and resilient spirit in the face of adversity.

Ultimate Gardener: Blaire Bouchard
The beauty of gardening has become far more abstract under Blaire's hands. With a supposed connection to the mystical arts, flowers and plantlife seem to thrive only days after she tends to them. After years of serving as the president her school's gardening club, she has developed a reputation of strict perfectionism in order to ensure the peak level of natural performance. However, many members of her club have left under mysterious circumstances, with rumors circulating that Blaire has created a harmful and abusive environment within the club that has led to many leaving in either protest or fear of Blaire's influence. Those who doubt her self-proclaimed connections to the mystical are often the most likely to see Blaire's true colors.

Ultimate Fashion Designer: Izumi Shima
The fashion scene fired up with a new sense of beauty when Izumi Shima, the Baroness of Boutiques, hit the scenes. After rising from poverty, Izumi Shima became the apprentice to one of Japan's top fashion designers. With a keen eye for detail and a mastery of the needle and thread, this determined fashionista has taken the internet by storm with her direct, but eloquent, personality. With legions of fans and patrons clamoring for her every word and action, the Baroness' Hall has reached international levels with Shima's clothes and accessories being shipped to some of the most high end department stores in the world. It's not often that Shima does interviews or exclusives, so there is some rumors to the history of this young designer and just who she really is underneath the layers of chique fabrics.

Ultimate Football Player: Carlos Barbaroza
Tragedy has followed the Barbaroza family for as long as Carlos can remember, having witnessed the woes and losses of many close relatives and loved ones. This has left Carlos determined to bring fame and fortune to his family as a skilled athlete, hoping that this would alleviate and mitigate the constant heartbreak and misfortune that has plagued his loved ones. With a heavily goal-focused mindset, Carlos has quickly lead his team to national levels through his athletic capabilities, winning several consecutive championships throughout his tenure. However, this career has turned him into a fiercely competitive, hostile, and materialistic diva more focused on the benefits he can gain from sports.

Ultimate Paintball Captain: Warren Kutsuki
As leader of the Fisheye Fighters, Ryu has turned a ragtag high school team of paintball players into an online sensation with their revolutionary strategies and close bonds. With his crew, paintball rifle, and lucky binoculars, Ryu has been able to led his team to complete international challenges and competitions with flying colors. This confident commando has been considered by his peers to be a brilliant strategist who could potentially reach the same heights of leadership as some of history's strongest military leaders. There are few challenges that the Ultimate Paintball Captain will back down from, because for as long as his ambitions lie forward, he will stop at nothing to achieve his goals.

Ultimate Mountain Climber: Mei Takayama
A natural survivor, Mei has become the inspiration to many after conquering both life-threatening illnesses and treacherous mountains. With passion, undying perseverance, and a hardy grin, she has shown that true strength comes to those who work the hardest for it. After climbing numerous mountains most would consider too intimidating for even the most daring of adventurers, Mei has built up a legendary status and brand to inspire young children to never give up and to always reach for the top. With both natural grace and raw strength, she has developed a genuine belief that no challenge will ever go unbeaten, even when the sacrifice begins to feel just as insurmountable.

Ultimate Engineer: Adeline Charbonnier
Within the streets of Paris, one small building is constantly lit with the sparks of machinery whenever Adeline Charbonnier finds her team on a new project. Whether it's toys, cars, home appliances, solar panels, factory machines, or computers, Adeline will make sure that that she and her team are on the go. You'd be hard to find this fiery thinker doing anything unrelated to her work thanks to her undying sense of humanitarianism. However, this has led to too many sleepless nights, causing the bright star to become overwhelmed with her workload. She truly wants to do her best in helping out her friends, but she's struggling to find the best possible way to balance her work and the rest of her life.

Ultimate Archivist: Setsuko Shimoda
Whether it's history, politics, finances, criminology, or scientific research, there isn't an article or document that Suzume can find. With an analytical mind and a steady heart, this mousy young lady has risen from working with student council and to serving with local politicians thanks to her incredible skills. As the Ultimate Archivist, Setsuko lives by a personal code of utmost transparency and 100% accuracy regarding any and all records that fall under her fingers. She is quite well known by friends and coworkers for her sweet, if somewhat stubborn, demeanor that can leave anyone anyone disarmed. Be sure not to get in her way when she's in the middle of work, however, or else you may end up with a lecture so stern your ears will be left ringing.

Ultimate Fisherman: Ken Sawai
Ken is a simple guy: he likes fishing, good food, and quiet lakes. Ken is somewhat of an awkward, if well-meaning, guy who is relatively new to the idea of Ultimates and becoming a global figure, having primarily worked within his community and limited social spaces due for most of his life. Ken has managed to win numerous fishing competitions, contributed his talents and knowledge towards conservational projects, and has aided in nurturing the populations of numerous endangered species of fish. However, this kindhearted slowpoke can find himself overwhelmed by modern and urban cultures with how fast and energized they are. In such environments, Ken prefers to lean on to those around him who may be much more capable in these times, never being too confident that he could truly survive in such a stressful environment.

Host of the Killing Game Extravaganza: Mr. Jupiter
Dancing like Gene Kelly, charming like Steve Allen, and psychotic as Lee Harvey Oswald, Mr. Jupiter has it all. This mysterious entertainer is not only the host of the Killing Game Extravaganza, but he is also the Mayor of Vongerlach City. In the pursuit of a truly extravagant Killing Game, Mr. Jupiter has managed to construct a masterful plan to psychologically isolate and weaken the wills of his contestants. With a mask of vanity, opportunism, and aloofness, Mr. Jupiter exercises his vast scope of power with a more upbeat and humorous disposition, seeing the various misfortunes and drama presented by the Killing Game as great opportunities to liven up the show. Rumor has it that this mysterious show host has a connection to the Buchanan Institute that may go back many years.

Ultimate Chaperone: Monoleo
Within Vongerlach City's iron jaws lies a small glimmer of hope, a fiery star of guidance, and a self-appointed leader who may be able to help the contestants survive the Killing Game. Monoleo believes he is the last line of defense between the Ultimate Student Body and Mr. Jupiter's sinister desires, although he is far more over his head than he knows. This proud blowhard will stop at nothing to overthrow his cynical rival, Monotora. However, Monoleo often forgets that he is just as powerless as the very contestants he's supposed to protect. Even so, there is nothing that Monoleo won't do to try and be the hero that he believes he can be.

Ultimate Backstage Manager: Monotora
Every good show host needs a manager, and a talent agent, and a producer, and a cleanup crew, and a caterer, and a makeup artist, and just about any job that Monotora will be willing to take.... which is all of them. This sleezy cat will tell you about all the work he does through the puffs of smoke if he has the time. As Mr. Jupiter's backstage manager, Monotora works to monitor the Killing Game and its crew. Why he does this is pretty much unknown considering that a robot tiger has no real need for money, but he seems to be perfectly content taking the credit for the show's success whenever his boss is not in the room.

This is just a hypothetical fanganronpa I was thinking of. I'd love to hear what people think of it. I'm not really looking to turn this into a legitimate game (no skills, no time, no money, etc.), but I still wanted to at least throw this idea onto paper to see what people think.

2023.02.03 04:15 joe-joe323 What I think we Americans forget

You'll see a lot of the time white Americans specifically talking about "reclaiming their culture" or "white longing" and I too have gone through this. But I think that something we tend to forget is that as Americans, with other Americans of every race around us, is that every cultural aspect of any American subculture is American. As a white American I can be proud of the perseverance of Indigenous Americans and African Americans through centuries of white oppression. The cultures that they created and maintained through that are probably the most American culture you'll find. American Chinese food and American Italian food, both born from immigrants combining their traditional foods with the new ingredients of this country, creating something incredibly special. It's all a part of the larger American culture. Now, I can't claim those subcultures or things of cultural significance as my own, but I can find things of significance with the general American experience. The sports we created, the music, the art, the entertainment. The fashion of different time periods, the history of towns and cities, the American invented foods (western clothing and ranch dressing rule) obviously there are bad things about our country's past, but once you recognize them and learn from them, you can move forward and learn to love the good parts of America. And hopefully we can bring our country into a more inclusive and appreciative era. Hope this helps some people :)
Also a HUGE f*** you to any "Proud American" who's just proud of their white supremacy, y'all the ones makin it hard to be proud of our country.

2023.02.03 04:01 PicturesqueCocktail Awkward restaurant experience- did I do something wrong?

Hello, I'm an American visiting Rome for the first time and we've had a lovely time so far, but tonight had a weird experience and i wondered if anyone had insight as to whether we did something wrong, if there's a cultural norm I'm not aware of, or what. Im sorry if it's too long and detailed; I just wanted to make sure I didn't leave anything out.
First, we had a great dinner elsewhere and asked the waiter if he could recommend a bar for some drinks. He told us there was a place called La Palapa around the corner, he used to work there and the drinks are great.
We get there and realize it's a restaurant, not a bar. I read something recently about how in Rome you're expected to order at least two courses and it's rude not to do so. I wanted to be clear that we didn't intend to order food, so I asked the host if we could just sit at the bar and drink. She lead us through a pretty large dining room and asked if we'd like to sit here, or the next room. I said "it doesn't matter" because I have no clue what the difference is.
She lead us to the next room which was much smaller than the dining room, and had a small bar with a few seats and 4-5 high top tables. It was empty except for the bartender. He greeted us; we asked for menus and he indicated a QR code, which we couldn't get to work because we didn't have a signal for internet. My husband asked if he could recommend a whiskey drink. He replied that we needed a ticket to get a drink and gestured back towards the main dining room.
We were a bit confused, but went back out and asked the doorman (first employee we saw). My Italian isn't very good, but I used Google translate to type "the bartender said we need a ticket." He looked confused and called over another man, who took us to a cash register and said we needed to order and pay for our drinks first. At this point we were able to get internet for the QR menu, so we looked for a moment and ordered two cocktails. We paid and were handed a ticket.
We took the ticket back to the small bar and gave it to the bartender. He looked at it and asked what we wanted. I didn't even look at the ticket but I guess it didn't indicate what we had ordered. We repeated our order and he made the drinks (they were indeed very good). We told him they were delicious and he said thank you. He started getting a couple drink tickets and began working on those. We told him about our waiter who said he worked there, but the bartender didn't know who we were talking about, and didn't attempt to engage us in conversation any further. We then just talked between ourselves but it felt really uncomfortable, like we weren't supposed to be there. At one point I typed on Google translate "is this the best place for us to sit? We don't want to be in your way." And I tried to show it to him on my phone, but he held up a finger to me. Understandable, since he was making drinks. I sat the phone on the counter where it was visible to him but he never looked at it, even after finishing his drink tickets. We finished our drinks, thanked him, and left.
In the US, almost every restaurant with an alcohol license has a bar you can sit at and order drinks and pay the bartender like you normally would at a table. It's almost always preferable to do this if you aren't eating. Usually the bartender is also friendly and engages you in conversation, though of course this isn't necessary. But we had intended to have a few drinks in this manner. Is that not really a thing in Rome? Or did we do something wrong/weird that threw off the staff? Any insight is appreciated.

2023.02.03 04:00 CiwiKing We can live life less lonely? - how nice wouldn't that be? #loneliness #depression #suicide #trauma

Hi and welcome to a new community here on reddit. Right now I am the only member, (I hear the echoing of the abandoned heart beating from my chest) so hopefully someone else will join? (and hopefully soon) ;)
I would like very much to create a place where you can come when you feel lonely (too lonely) and you don't know where to turn.
I am not selling anything, but my children told me about reddit to be a nice and friendly place to start a community, so here I am. Life can be very simple if we let it.
I look around this world and I see too much loneliness. In truth: we are everyone; alone.
We are born alone and we die alone, we all know this...but being "alone" and being "lonely" is not the same thing....we all know that, right?
We can feel it.
Yeah.
It can be nice and perfectly fine to be alone...but when we after a while start feeling lonely, and even lonelier - our mind: our state of mind, it changes.
Many of us lack the tools to draw force and energy from that feeling of loneliness and it grows into a deeper feeling, similar to that of abandonment, and this is the phase on that interior journey that some of you are on, where I'd like you to find this space.
Breath, exist and begin a new journey right here, right now: a journey inwards, towards your inner true being, a journey where YOU are your own guide, guru & devotee.
A journey that you are fully capable to make (even though it might not feel like it) and that will give you something that you might not yet have: true and genuine self-trust.
Self-trust is not self-confidence, in fact we don't need self-confidence.
Self-trust is not self-esteem, in fact we don't need self-esteem.
What we need though is self-trust...when we have gained access to our own self-trust, no one can then take it away from us.
Self-esteem and self-confidence is fed from outside of you, whilst self-trust comes from within, it is something you yourself have already withing, and that you can gain full access to, simply by living life.
_ _ _
I am just putting down a few lines here rather spontaneously, so you will have something if and when you come here.
Please know that you can become your own best friend, your own best lover and your own best parent . We really do not "need" anyone else and it can actually be rather useless to "be with someone else" before we have "been with our true self". And this is because we will be able to connect with a partner or a spouse or another person and being only once we have found a true and direct connection with our self.
This means that if we stay in a relation with someone that also "hasn't yet met him/hethemselves/etc", no one in that relationship is really connecting with the other.
Most people have these types of relationships, due to the misconception about loneliness and a misunderstanding of how "connection" really functions.
If you are alone and feeling lonely, I'd like for you to know and draw wisdom from knowing that being in such a relationship with another individual and being is 100% a waste of your precious time.
I don't care if you are 14 years old, 44 years old, or 84 years old - you do NOT want to invest in such a relationship. Especially when you instead have all the possibility to put all that time-investment within establishing a deep connection with your self.
You are more than gold worth because you have an intrinsic value for just being and existing, "just being and existing", as if it was nothing...a thing to take for granted...
It is not.
Today, here & now, you begin your journey inwards, towards YOUR self. It is going to be fun and teachable and very exciting and SUPER interesting.
You have only one thing to focus upon: to come with an open mind...and that's not always that easy.

I have to go cook for my family now, tonight we'll eat: Chili con carne (without the meat ;)) spicy hot food, served on simple white plates, in a house on the Italian country side. Tomorrow I will take everyone with me, dogs included, and go pick down all the black olives. It high time, they are very ripe!
As you see - nothing fancy here - just genuine feelings and food and people.
I do hope you will come back soon and why not write me something here, about you, or whatever you want. I think I have to set up rules or something but I will figure that part out as we go along adn just hope not too many haters will find their way here, but even so, they are humans too and most probably: VERY lonely.
We will have to see how this adventure unfolds and develops ;)
I find that to always be the best way...walking this path, living this process of life, as it presents itself, while it presents itself...with very few or no expectations and prefixed end results.
Just being glad and fulfilled by having lived another day.

2023.02.03 03:00 CiwiKing We can live life less lonely? - how nice wouldn't that be? #loneliness #depression #suicide #trauma

Hi and welcome to a new community here on reddit. Right now I am the only member, (I hear the echoing of the abandoned heart beating from my chest) so hopefully someone else will join? (and hopefully soon) ;)
I would like very much to create a place where you can come when you feel lonely (too lonely) and you don't know where to turn.
I am not selling anything, but my children told me about reddit to be a nice and friendly place to start a community, so here I am. Life can be very simple if we let it.
I look around this world and I see too much loneliness. In truth: we are everyone; alone.
We are born alone and we die alone, we all know this...but being "alone" and being "lonely" is not the same thing....we all know that, right?
We can feel it.
Yeah.
It can be nice and perfectly fine to be alone...but when we after a while start feeling lonely, and even lonelier - our mind: our state of mind, it changes.
Many of us lack the tools to draw force and energy from that feeling of loneliness and it grows into a deeper feeling, similar to that of abandonment, and this is the phase on that interior journey that some of you are on, where I'd like you to find this space.
Breath, exist and begin a new journey right here, right now: a journey inwards, towards your inner true being, a journey where YOU are your own guide, guru & devotee.
A journey that you are fully capable to make (even though it might not feel like it) and that will give you something that you might not yet have: true and genuine self-trust.
Self-trust is not self-confidence, in fact we don't need self-confidence.
Self-trust is not self-esteem, in fact we don't need self-esteem.
What we need though is self-trust...when we have gained access to our own self-trust, no one can then take it away from us.
Self-esteem and self-confidence is fed from outside of you, whilst self-trust comes from within, it is something you yourself have already withing, and that you can gain full access to, simply by living life.
_ _ _
I am just putting down a few lines here rather spontaneously, so you will have something if and when you come here.
Please know that you can become your own best friend, your own best lover and your own best parent . We really do not "need" anyone else and it can actually be rather useless to "be with someone else" before we have "been with our true self". And this is because we will be able to connect with a partner or a spouse or another person and being only once we have found a true and direct connection with our self.
This means that if we stay in a relation with someone that also "hasn't yet met him/hethemselves/etc", no one in that relationship is really connecting with the other.
Most people have these types of relationships, due to the misconception about loneliness and a misunderstanding of how "connection" really functions.
If you are alone and feeling lonely, I'd like for you to know and draw wisdom from knowing that being in such a relationship with another individual and being is 100% a waste of your precious time.
I don't care if you are 14 years old, 44 years old, or 84 years old - you do NOT want to invest in such a relationship. Especially when you instead have all the possibility to put all that time-investment within establishing a deep connection with your self.
You are more than gold worth because you have an intrinsic value for just being and existing, "just being and existing", as if it was nothing...a thing to take for granted...
It is not.
Today, here & now, you begin your journey inwards, towards YOUR self. It is going to be fun and teachable and very exciting and SUPER interesting.
You have only one thing to focus upon: to come with an open mind...and that's not always that easy.

2023.02.03 00:17 hyacathinose How to cook professionally

Hello my friends!
I remember there used to be an event where you have to uncook fish for bob the cat. Turns out if you bring burnt fish you can un-cook it, I'm certain you used to be able to, and then when you exit the random event you can attempt to cook your inventory of burnt fish again! What do you think about this? OP for some of the higher level food like anglers? What do you think?

I find that to always be the best way...walking this path, living this process of life, as it presents itself, while it presents itself...with very few or no expectations and prefixed end results.
Just being glad and fulfilled by having lived another day.
Take care of your SELF/CiwiKing
