• I wish it was just considered more “ok” to not get married & not have kids?

    I feel like there is so much societal pressure on me, especially as a woman to do these things. And I don’t even want to do them. I don’t get why people are so obsessed with doing these things. It’s sickening to me honestly. I feel obligated to do these things and like I will be left behind and left out and... show more
    I feel like there is so much societal pressure on me, especially as a woman to do these things. And I don’t even want to do them. I don’t get why people are so obsessed with doing these things. It’s sickening to me honestly. I feel obligated to do these things and like I will be left behind and left out and like everyone I know will be doing these things except for me which is an awful feeling. I don’t want to be judged and stigmatized for not doing both. I’m still pretty young and have time to decide but I just hate how society puts pressure on women and then they’re forced into it basically. I HATE that.

    Best answer: Only if they want to be....

    Hypnosis is really a state of high suggestibility. It's the body mind in a close to alpha state. As such, it can be used to plant suggestions about actions to be taken with particular stimuli.

    However, most people are highly resistant to some changes in their normal actions/reactions. And some people (about 1 in 20) are very resistant to any suggestions.

  • How to learn basic skills if you've never been taught?

    I don't know how to cook or drive. I don't know anything about finances. I moved straight of my parents house into my husband's, and I've just relied on him. But I feel so useless and stupid, being an adult who doesn't know basic things. How do I learn ~adult things when no one had ever taught me? show more

  • Are these signs of a lower than average IQ?

    Best answer: Western philosophy suggests that there's a balance (or imbalance) between the logos or logic; ethos or ethics, and pathos or emotions. As I just said, most people have an imbalance, favoring one approach over the other. If there's a sale on microwaves, logically you know you aren't saving $30, you are... show more
    Best answer: Western philosophy suggests that there's a balance (or imbalance) between the logos or logic; ethos or ethics, and pathos or emotions. As I just said, most people have an imbalance, favoring one approach over the other.

    If there's a sale on microwaves, logically you know you aren't saving $30, you are spending $150 on your 3rd impulse buy microwave. The impulse is the pathos, the emotion of "gaining" $30 or maybe not losing $30 when you buy it later. Ethically, you might pay $30 more to support a local business even though logically and emotionally, you don't want to.

    As you can see, you can only really pick 2 at one time and frankly, logos is the one that takes time and work. Most people can't do that becau...

    Best answer: this will be a longish answer. i have thought long and hard about what you quesiton keep in mind this comes from someone who is out in the 9-5 5 days a week and wants ever so much to be home.

    People that get up early and go to work 5 days per week, how they differ in happiness /mentality from people that stay home a lot ? why? depends on the person. if your a person who feels they need socail interaction like my boss. who will not allow me to work from home and needs a human in a chair. because he would be forced to look at himself all day. instead of interacting with others to feel energized. they go to work and would rather go to work than be alone all day. the key answer is BALANCE there is no one way to do anything for we all different!



    does staying home day after day make one depressed more? for some yes it would just as for some working everday can make them depressed (thats me) but balence is the key anyone doing one thing all the time is bound to get depressed unless they have an undying passion for that.

    why? we are social beings so the act of interacting with real life people is healthy for all of us. it's just the amount. i'd have no issues leaving my house for 4 hours every day. but 10 hours at this rate dinner isn't even done until 9pm wash rinse repeat. its only tuesday.

    I can think of so many things that can be done at home, <-- home it can be hard for those who avoid looking at themselves..

    but why people might be lonely, bored, depressed at home all day instead of those that get up early in the a.m. and go to work each day and have to interact with people with egos and attitudes all day. because we are not clones and we all are different. the person you don't want to talk to i might want to. the interactions with people for extroverts it's challenging them to look into themselves because they cant do that on their own so this is great for those types of people they learn more about who they are when they are around others. unlike me who learns more when i'm away from others. i think it goes with empathy if your empathic to others you dont want to be around them much if at all because they rub off their feelings and heck can't even get threw my own emotions before someone has dumped theirs on to me.


    and they have to act fake themselves too? seems fake for sure. but learning is never fake. people as much as we claim are fake are just learning. well most of them

    surely it changes you into like a "robot" doesn't it? <-- no i'm still human but i feel 100% like a robot wake up rinse repeate. after 10 years you look back and are like wow i did those years wrong.

    are these worker types really ALIVE mentally? my boss is.. he told me how i appear at work is how he feels at home. i told him to send me home and let me expereince that because i wouldn't know. lol

    emotionally? workers who don't want to worker are depressed the ones who want to work are happy and most likely tie their happiness to achievements that othrs reconize they can't be happy with self thats why they have a need to work and be around others.

    or what? humans are all different.

    why? i don't know.
