I hope my sister breaks her ankle so she stops posting 10 times a day about her marathon training and her speed records. Enough!

I hate it when friends divorce. I don't have many friends to begin with and, each time a couple divorces, at least one of them (sometimes both) goes away. Selfish of me, but I really can't afford to lose any.

After 28 years of marriage, I finally succumbed and gave in to SO's desire to get an artificial Christmas tree. Now, every time I walk past the artificial tree in our living room, or past a real tree outside a store, I feel like such a traitor.

I don't enjoy being around extroverts because it feels like they need constant validation and they get it by siphoning all my energy. I don't blame them for being who they are, but I just can't spare too much energy these days.

I am black and work for a mostly black school district under the poverty line. I can't believe white staff who comment on kids at the border. We have never once served fresh food in our schools. And we literally fucking handcuff 8 year olds regularly.

I don't understand the process to select class mom. Lol I'm a successful prosecutor but I only work PT and I have never had the chance to be class mom for any of my kids. I'm glad for the moms who do it, they are usually better than the actual teacher.

My 12 year old, though brilliant, does not seem to have any ambition nor empathy. I don't know how I failed so badly. It makes me scared for my child's future.

I could give up alcohol completely if it didn’t include wine. Not unrelatedly, I could lose 15 pounds if I just gave up wine. I should be bothered by this. But, I’m really just not. Fuck it - Cheers and Happy Monday!

I don't enjoy spending time with my 5yo DD. I've tried everything to get her to behave herself and she just can't. She's stubborn, loud, and is constantly bothering her little brother. I love her but I hate to say that I'd rather not be around her.

Whether or not I can finish my Christmas shopping and buy groceries for Christmas dinner and baking depends solely on this Fridays pay cheque and whether or not it includes a Christmas bonus. Without a bonus I am 100% screwed and have failed my babies.

I feel like a failure. This is a dark cloud in my life. Shouldn’t being a SAHM be rewarding and give me purpose? It does not. Not enough. Everything seems trivial and utterly unimportant.

Found a new hairstylist and we really clicked! She always does before/after pics when doing color. Saw mine in salon pics looked amazing. Followed her insta and she’s posted a ton except mine. IDK why I’m hurt by this.

Thoughts of suicide have been plaguing me more and more frequently...all due to financial stress. I don't care what they say, I believe money CAN buy happiness. The burden of poverty and constant struggle just to survive is the sole cause of my pain.

I escaped my ex's economic abuse! Divorce is WONDERFUL! No more messes, hoarding, bills being paid late. My modest apartment is clean and organized. Ah, heaven! Don't feel sorry for me for divorcing my ex. I am thrilled.

I made sure "honor and obey" were not part of our (secular) marriage vows. That sounds like some medieval or ultra-religious bullshit to me.

We have a rule. "Unless they're doing something dangerous, destructive, or illegal, don't criticize how they do a chore". I created it, so I have to abide by the rule - but I didn't realize how HARD it is to NOT correct DH or "fix" it when he's "wrong".

I'm jealous of people with beautiful, graceful handwriting. My "penmanship", while legible, is just functional and plain - not at all elegant.
