I’m pretty sure that everyone has that one thing they just love to talk about – that fangirl/boy thing, that obscure topic, the hobby they adore, great news that’s arrived – that all of their friends are sick and tired of hearing about ad nauseum.
Well, Reddit is the perfect place to vomit random delights, and this thread asking people about the thing they’re dying to share is the spot to do it – let’s hear what random things these 16 folks spewed, shall we?
16. Follow your heart.
I got a job today in the death industry!!!
Everyone has always made fun of me for wanting to work in the death industry so I never really pursued it. Recently I applied for a position with a funeral home and today I was hired.
Feeling pretty darn proud of myself and ready to do some super meaningful work.
15. Definitely something to celebrate.
Next month is the very last payment on my house. Pretty excited about it………
14. Both excellent facts.
Deleted all the pictures of my ex off my phone.
Also dolphins get high off of lightly squeezing a blow fish in their mouth and then they play a game of pass the blow fish.
13. That’s so hard.
I spoke to my mom yesterday and she shared with me that she wasn’t feeling well and will be going to the ER today to check things out.
She seemed strange and even said her goodbye to me as if she was worried she was going to die. It freaked me out.
I tried contacting her today but had no luck. I’m worried. She lives in a different country.
12. It’s never too late.
At the age of, well, 35+ I’m facing the prospect of going back to college and starting life all over again. It’s terrifying.
There has been a bigger response to this than I had anticipated. Thanks everyone for your support, experiences, and encouraging words.
11. Every day counts.
I quit smoking weed after writing a contract to myself on the 19th of August. It’s been 23 years of daily smoking.
I am proud of myself for this short time.
10. Some friends!
I’ve written and self-published several books.
My main fantasy series isn’t perfect, but I love it.
I can’t get my family or friends to care.
9. Both amazing accomplishments!
I’m 244 days alcohol free and 46lbs down.
8. Moms are the best.
I had dinner with my mom and she’s really fun to be around.
She showed me pics of her and a friend hanging out, and she was in the drivers seat of her car with a huge hat pulled low so she had to tilt her head back to see. It was really funny because she looked like she’s going wassuuuuuup lol.
7. Better times ahead.
I haven’t had a suicidal thought in about a month. 😊
Still not doing well, but it’s nice not wanting to be dead all the time.
6. A really great email.
I just got an email for a job I applied to. I got passed the HR screening so I’m expecting an interview with a manager I used to work for, so I’m incredibly confident I’ll get the job.
It’s so small, but that email lifted me out of a deep depression. I’ve been trying to get out of my current job for over 3 and a half years. It had absolutely ruined my mental health to the point of contemplating suicide.
But now there’s hope. And the new job is one that will not only be tolerable, but fun. I can’t wait for the interview.
5. Playing the long game.
The saguaro cactus (🌵) takes 75 years to even start growing the “limbs”
4. Never give up.
I got a girls number today, which is suuuper uncharacteristic of me. Yeah me!
Edit: she’s coming over so second the night next week, we’re in boys
3. A rough time.
I broke up with my partner of 5 years and I’m struggling with crippling depression.
Some coping tips I’ve learned:
Prioritize yourself always, there’s a difference between being a selfish a-hole and a self-respecting person
Pick up a hobby you enjoy
Feel your emotions instead of suppressing them [still struggling with this lol]
tough time? Take it one step at a time
Its been a rough few weeks and honestly I don’t think I’ll recover anytime soon. I know heart breaks suck but it isn’t forever. Of course I fantasize how we only take a short break and meet again to fall in love and live happily ever after. The problem is how easy it is to romanticize failed relationships into these grand fantasies. If we rekindle our old flame we will be better together and if not we will just be better. Its time for us to live our lives separate and I don’t know who needs to read this but, its time to live your life to the fullest as well.
Stay safe friends, and if you need a complete stranger to talk to just message me
2. It’s a good feeling!
I just bought a pretty expensive thing I wanted for a long time and I feel pretty good about it 🙂
1. When you find something you love.
I started to learn coding this year and I did’t expect to love it to the point I am skipping lunch because I forget because I am caught in the flow and don’t want to cut it and can’t wait to get a job at this so I can make money which I will invest into learning more which will give me more job and so on and so on until my brain turns to mush.
I haven’t felt this way since I was in high school 10 years ago and I used to grab my textbooks of my favourite subjects and read them before class!
I actually love listening to random people – no expectations attached!
