I don't know your circumstances, but being unfit for work can be a self-defeating spiral. It'll be harder to get back to it if take yourself out of the pool.

Do you have a driving license? Maybe a delivery driver would suit you. There's certainly a lot of those jobs going around at the moment.

Not a confident driver in traffic. I have to do a test run if it is necessary to drive anywhere. But you are right in that not working could be a self-defeating spiral and its important to have something to do, lined up. Delivery driver is not a bad option tho' , apart from being a lighthouse keeper :)

i too find it very difficult to work with or for others. even if, for instance, i was a performing artist and fans wished to speak to me...really dislike that too. a lot. all those situations need some strange balance of personal, professional, creative, public figure... it's frustrating and i'm not good at it.

i didn't mind being in the service industry though, where i was a manager. customers thought i was pleasant and generous and i often got some of the best tips. although some people liked me because i didn't give a $#%^ about giving out extras. i disliked my boss and he was smart enough to realize he shouldn't mess with me. he was a idiotic, low functioning sociopath. and i am not speaking in hyperbole, he was borderline retarded and a hundred percent disgusting.

i'd take joy in removing him from the same plane of existence of me and i can't think of a single other person i'd say that about, even "abusers". i really don't like gross people. gross sexual predators with their blotchy red pimple faces and elastic waistband 6x khaki shorts. mouth breathing, sloppy chewers with tiny manicured hands and with less capability of controlling their emotions than a toddler.

that bastard was handsy but not with me, thank god. even that idiot was capable of figuring out who was an easy target and who would rip his arm off and shove it up his own filth encrusted asshole.

anyway, i would say i develop strong opinions about most my bosses. i try to avoid "bosses" at all costs these days.

Mouth breathing is irritating , but combined with tiny manicured hands, is disgusting (( shudder))

So like, I bought some stickers off Amazon, because I want to put them on something, and they get here, and literally the whole package they came in was empty. Amazon sent me an empty package. So, I go to get my money back, and I have to return them. How do I return something I didn't receive? Amazon's customer service is a robot now.

I dreamt that a friend got married, I messaged her about it and that made her wish to break him off :lol:

Bearded dragons are the derpiest animals you can own as pets. There have been pet bearded dragons to literally fall asleep in their water bowel and drown while asleep. They're lovable as all hell, but they're a danger to themselves. So are birds.

Well I am thinking that when you think that someone is an asshole, after a deep and long knowledge, it's usually because he IS an asshole.
And I am thinking that when you broke contacts with someone, it's usually because the relationship didn't work.
And when you contact three assholes again, after that contacts were broken because they are assholes, and because the relationships didn't work, and all that within two days only... well you don't discover three assholes... but four. :roll: :lol:

A lot of people around the world want to teach, and many few people want to learn... Interesting. :P

There's a difference between teaching and coercion. People who genuinely want to teach are generally agnostic to the idea and teach to help people learn. Other "teachers" are those who want others to accept their point of view, so it's done for their own benefit, not for the benefit of the student.

Very few people actually want to teach.
I'm not arguing; I'm explaining why I'm right.

Maybe I am wrong, but I think that there are some things that are right objectively: I mean that I am not always "agnostic to the idea". When I see someone that mistakes / misunderstands something, I am sorry for him, and sometimes for the message that he's giving to others; then I try to let him understand that he is wrong. It's never coercion, and I agree with you that if it's coercion it's done for ourselves.
But if you know and see that someone is wrong, don't you try to talk with him? (If he isn't totally crazy, sure).
I often think, feel and experience differently from you, but I appreciate our dialogue because you respond reflecting objectively. We all have our “blind corners”, but very few people listen to you, when you indicate their blind corners. It's a great quality. Mostly I stopped to show people what they do not see about themselves: it used to create a lot of problems with most people, even though I did it with a lot of tact.
I do not pretend that I haven't blind corners, or not to struggle with people showing them. But it depends on how it's done. If I trust the person, and if she isn't threatening, I don't avoid introspection.

*On a side note, my post was indirectly about some “dialogue” that I had about psychopathy last days (not on this forum). My position was “do not demonize people too much, everyone deserves a chance” and also “yes it's true, that personality has all these bad traits, but it has some qualities too”.
“Dialogue” in quotes: the first interlocutor ignored me, and the second one answered me the first time only, and didn't answer anymore when I put him on the corner with a further question. These two people are playing the teacher's role, but they avoid dialogue. I find it's coward, or hypocritical. And I wasn't challenging, I was very quiet!
I can be wrong, but if I am wrong, then explain.
