DH’s skills in the bedroom are lacking which is not that bad because we’re in love but damn if I wouldn’t like to be with someone who knows what they’re doing once in a while! He’s my only but even I know there’s got to be more than this!

She is having 10 bridesmaids and he is having 10 groomsmen. No one has that many people who are that close. How rude is it to decline being in the wedding? It's going to cost like $2k extra compared to just being a guest.

H asked for the divorce. Fucker did me a favor. Emotionally abusive/gaslighting, hypocrite and closet racist. I have never felt better in my life. Trust me, run from yours. It's not worth the heartache.

Decided to go on a dating diet since men seem to think they can push me into FWB despite me being clear about what I want. Best decision I ever made. I highly recommend it.

I'm 33, he's 19. He says he has the hots for me. Whenever I think about him I get warm. It's so wrong and fortunately nothing will ever happen as I'm married and love my husband but it's so flattering

I don’t understand why people act like being a parent is doing a favor to their child. My mom did that shit to me. It wasn’t my choice to be born! Stop acting like I did something wrong because you decided to keep me! I didn’t ruin your life, you did

I have 2 toddlers and I'm too tired for anything else. I have no hobbies, no friends, no money, no energy, and no fucks. So burnt out and don't know how to be myself or even who that is anymore...

Just realized my Dh and MIL live like moderate hoarders because they don't think they deserve better. Clutter and collections abound. I hate it.

DH of 11 yrs is gone at BIL’s house & won’t be home til late tomorrow. I hate that he gets to leave me & DC (8,2,4mo) & have fun, meanwhile I NEVER get to leave, have friends, have access to money, find who I am outside of mom. So tired of being alone.

It still bothers me that when I told my family about being pregnant with my 2nd my mom said "oh my God again!?" It's been 4 yrs and they're besties but it still bugs me

Was subbing in a school for aide in class. 1st grader tells 23 yr old teacher she doesn't feel good. Teacher thought she was faking. My mom alarm went off. Told her she needed to go to nurse. I was right! Girl threw up immediately in nurse! Mom win!

DH is 50 but, if it were not for me, our home would still be furnished in mismatched trash day "rescues" like when he was in college.

If my kids gave me a break I don't know what I'd do with myself. I've reached full sahm immersion. I sit right next to them now by habit. Ugh.

I once sent my kiddo to school with a low grade fever, loaded up on Tylenol, so she could go on a field trip she was really looking forward to. I know it's wrong but it was a Friday and she had the whole weekend to rest and recover. Kinda guilty.

Very confused. DD14 who has never been an issue, good grades, etc---is apparently "acting up in class." Calling one of her teachers on Monday but WTF! Wondering if they have the wrong kid! I know HS changes things but acting up suddenly? Makes no sense.

I'm a teacher of 25 years. The most disrespectful kids are usually children of police officers, principals and other teachers. And usually these parents swear "Oh, I don't tolerate disrespect!" Well clearly you do if your kid acts how they do in class!

I get that there ARE benefits to marijuana but in many states including mine, it is still illegal recreationally so I refuse to partake in it. Beneficial or not---not getting caught with it.

I’m afraid to see him because he is over me and he will be looking for all the reasons he is better off without me. Dreading it but can’t admit it.

Today was my birthday. One person showed up to my party. I thought people liked me. Even my DH was asleep on the couch by 9pm.. never celebrating my birthday again.

I don't get people who say their newborn baby looks like "XYZ". Most newborns don't look like anyone in my opinion even their parents, until they get older. They seldom have no striking facial features to resemble anyone. Feel crazy for thinking that.

I often wonder if Zak from Ghost Adventures is on the spectrum and is undiagnosed. His “douchebag” behavior reminds me of myself before I was diagnosed at 38.

Can’t handle dh’s hypocrisy. Such an asshole to me when just us/us and kids, but puts on a show for others. Can’t really rake it anymore.

I just realized that I may not have my parents around in the next decade. They’re both healthy and active, but they’re both over 75. I love them so much - I can’t even begin to imagine life without them.
