Yes, you are the asshole. You called her a "stupid fucking whore", and you're not even sure what she said about you.

What you did is in fact the definition of an asshole. You opened up, and shit poured out your orifice.

Wait. You putting those vegetables in your butt or something? Because, that's the only reason you can be this angry over vegetables. Protip: don't put vegetables in your butt, you freak.

How many years have you been in your current relationship?

[–]Questionable 8 insightful - 4 fun8 insightful - 3 fun9 insightful - 4 fun -  (6 children)

Still looking for validation aren't you? Again. You are the asshole.

But he did ask you a question, maybe he is not a bot after all 😮

[–]Questionable 5 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Wasn't aware that was a concern with this thread.

[–]Musky[S] 1 insightful - 3 fun1 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 3 fun -  (3 children)

I was curious, didn't expect snark.

It is hard to take the advice of a bunch of terminally single people who disagree with you.

[–]Questionable 6 insightful - 4 fun6 insightful - 3 fun7 insightful - 4 fun -  (1 child)

You were looking for justifications for your own actions. It's why you made the thread.

For reference, I was once in a relationship with a woman, that was an ex-prostitute, former heroin addict, former run away, and HIV positive Satanist that was dumb as a brick. She made me so angry, that I could literally see red from the blood vessels in my eyes bursting. She's been dead for a good thirty years now. Most likely died from the medication Dr. Fauci was getting everyone to take back in the late 80's early 90's. Now, she was a literal whore, that I later found walking the streets again. And do you know what I never once called her?

"Stupid Fucking Whore"

That's you. On the topic of vegetables? In regards to your wife I assume. And then you came here looking for validation? And you think that's going to come from me? Or more accurately. You asked:

"Am I the asshole"

And again, I must inform you. Yes. Yes you are.

Sounds like you are afraid to be single so you cling to a relationship you don't really like.

[–]hfxB0oyA 8 insightful - 4 fun8 insightful - 3 fun9 insightful - 4 fun -  (2 children)

If you've been in yours long enough that you're calling your woman a stupid fucking whore, it's time to rethink whether this is something that continues to be best for either of you.

Seems controlling.

You never really have any control in what others say behind your back.

You know my stance. YTA. What kind of vegetables you eat is so small a matter that it's perfectly normal for her to think it's an exception even in spite of your agreement. We all want our privacy to be respected, but it's no longer reasonable when it disrupts the natural flow of her conversations. You're too controlling, and also abusive.

[–]Musky[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (26 children)

You know my stance

Yeah, begging for nudes from her. Fuck off Larry.

[–]LarrySwinger2 9 insightful - 3 fun9 insightful - 2 fun10 insightful - 3 fun -  (6 children)

Classic. You're asking for our input, and when it isn't what you wanted to read, you find fault with the person posting it and dismiss it. I thought this was a serious AITA and you were open to the possibility of being wrong. How naive of me. I see that your only motivation is to spite her. Well, just know that you're only making yourself look bad by posting these conversations. You're calling her a whore and she even responds with "okay", and you're surprised when people stand up for her? Fuck you for forcing me into a whiteknight position.

And no, there was nothing to my joke. I always post jokes in spite of the fact that it can push people's buttons. Don't count on my support anymore when you're dealing with an issue, since you don't appreciate it anyway. In fact, how about you stop turning this place into a kindergarten and take your drama elsewhere?

I know what you were doing Larry, I've done it myself. Stfu while you're behind because you aren't making it better. Don't do things like that. Be a respectable human being.

[–]LarrySwinger2 8 insightful - 5 fun8 insightful - 4 fun9 insightful - 5 fun -  (2 children)

Nope. I've never asked a woman for nudes and I'm hardly interested. I may just give it a try with Mel, though, if only to spite you. Anyway, you don't get to control my speech in addition to hers. I made a dedicated post for the meme, also for context, so people can see what this is about.

The question is asked in a joking way because if it's rejected they can write it off as just a joke. It was a serious request.

    [–]Musky[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    Yeah, I've done it myself. I don't appreciate others doing it or acting like I don't know what they're doing.

    [–]JasonCarswell 5 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 3 fun -  (4 children)

    You may be confusing Larry with me as I jokingly asked for noooods once.

    If it wasn't obvious it was a joke, then you're obviously not observant, no joke.

    [–]Musky[S] 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

    No, it was Larry this time. Pretty sure nobody here will share nudes with you since you posted your ex for everyone in chat. That's why you don't share those things. Well, one of the reasons.

    [–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

    No one gives a fuck about my ex's mild photos.
    Few if any even know her name.
    MANY share those things.
    It's called the Internet.

    [–]Musky[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

    I wouldn't do it, I consider it unethical unless you had her permission to freely share them.

    [–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    No one has asked you to.

    The sword of judgement cuts both ways. You do not want me to start.

    Hahaha. Begging for nudes. Breathing Haaaaaa Hahahahaha.

    Look, you can’t take advise from a bunch of cucks. You are going to get gaslit into oblivion.

    You are calling names because you are pissed. And you are right to be pissed.

    You are not controlling, you are not possessive. There are rules to dating you, and one of those rules you is that if your not there in person, they keep your name out of their mouths.

    If she doesn’t comply, kick her to the side of the road. It’s not that hard man.

    I realize she’s the only girl on said it or whTever, but it’s not worth the heart burn. There’s nothing she does, that makes it worth it to put up with a loud mouth.

    [–]Musky[S] 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

      and there's evidence she DOESN'T like it

      She didn't like me getting so attached, and I don't blame her.

      I don't know why anyone's wife would put up with half of the disloyalty that M's wife has supposedly allowed

      There's no disloyalty when it's done with her approval.

        It's more like a work wife, but for the internet. Internet girlfriend. You're talking like I have a side piece I'm banging.

        The situation also predates the wife by four years, not Mel, but her predecessors. I like to call them The Bored Housewives Club collectively.

          You are an example of how NOT to successfully be polyamourous.

          Read "The Ethical Slut". It's very good, even if you have no interest in being "different". I have a copy around here somewhere.

          [–]Musky[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (7 children)

          There's no fucking so it's not really polygamy. It's like a friendship with extra steps. Almost all the parties are informed and consent, it's ethical on my end. Her dude, well, lets poor out a cold one for him, he doesn't even know there was a second guy, poor schmuck.

          [–][deleted] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

          Obviously you need to read the book. Polyamoury is NOT just about sex, or about open relationships. It's about intimacy and love (amour) with many (poly) people - respectfully.

          [–]Musky[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

          The relationship with the wife hasn't been this good in years. Y'all think me talking to Mel was depriving somethin from the wife, but it's outsourcing things she's not interested in, and there are rules. If the wife wanted it ended, she has that option.

          [–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

          You are not justified and your excuses don't hold water or fool anyone, but you are still free to be as crappy as you want to be.

          By any contemporary standard measure, your divided selfish focus should be on your wife, fixing that mess, and being a better person.

            You can't even understand my literal words, much less communicate clearly, on this site with all the time in the world. Even poorly executed, writing is a craft - a less-authentic filter - with people hiding behind keyboards.

            In person through pacing, body language, intensity, volume, eye contact, etc etc etc, will give off far more information than any text message could ever attempt to do. You may wear clothes, but you and your motivations will be infinitely more naked to the observant, unable to hide your impulse reactions (which are already more than obvious on SaidIt).

            This goes both ways. The intimacy, contact, companionship, etc that you seek, might be found in a counsellor.

            Honest opinion?

            I think you are making very reasonable requests, 2/3 of them are very polite, #3 seems a bit much. Its understandable you are upset given its third time youve had to make this request, but I think you went from 0 -> 0 -> 100, when 0 -> 25 -> 50 might have been better

I was trying to explain to him in a way I thought was understanding of his feelings why he didn't need to call you a bunch of nasty names, while giving him credit for respectfully making his request in the other messages. People tend to take criticism better that way. Wtf is your problem?

            I don't think it's about the vegetables to him. He is uncomfortable about being the subject of conversations between you and smokey, apparently regardless of the context, and feels like you did not respect this after he tried to politely request you not do so. I realize it was likely not your intention to disrespect his wishes, and probably didn't understand that even talking about him in terms of vegetables would qualify as this and upset him. I think he probably finds it hurtful that you dont understand why this hurts his feelings

            Again, Musky is my friend, and I didn't want to make it appear I was invalidating his feelings, while encouraging him to resolve conflicts with less nastiness. I don't think what he said was called for, and more importantly isn't constructive for him, or going to help him be happy in relationships. I also don't think coming at him from a purely critical perspective or making it appear I've chosen sides against him is likely to get through to him when he has hurt feelings.

            Notice how if you don’t gaslight Muskrat, Mel is beyond livid. Some how there’s something wrong with muskrat. But no one is calling out Mel for similar horrible behavior. Women are not more mature, they get a pass in everything because they have vaginas.

            There’s a user in here defending her, hoping to get closer to her privately.

            This is a huge circle jerk for women, and it’s why women should not be in any real workplace, like stem fields.

            That is a very funny take, considering Musky is trying his damndest to gaslight me into thinking I am a smooth brained idiot. I could show screenshots of all of those texts I guess, but I won't.

            I have been bugging you to take vitamins to avoid Wernicke–Korsakoff syndrome. If I tell you how I feel you say it's emotional manipulation, and when I tell you that you never used to have to be told things over and over again and you don't seem to understand what I tell you, it's gas lighting. Fun.

              We should let him know that he's absolutely the asshole in those texts.

              This is terrible advice, and literally repeating what Musky did. Aggressively correcting people tends to make them defensive, and gives their defense mechanisms room to paint you as the asshole, and letting them avoid any self-reflection on how their actions were not helping them. Telling Musky he is an asshole is going to be about as effective as telling Mel she is a terrible bitch. Telling Musky as someone who cares about his wellbeing that the way he is responding is counterproductive to what he is trying to accomplish is by far the better tactic here.

                We should be honest. If anyone acts like an asshole (including yours truly), tell them. Very simple. There is absolutely no reason to 'walk on eggshells' around here. Fuck that.

                I guess I just don't see it that way. I don't see this as walking on eggshells, I simply think people are more receptive to criticism when you appeal to their reason and self interest rather than expressing moral outrage. I was honest in saying his reaction wasn't the best way he could have handled that. I have no interest in declaring either party an asshole or bad guy, thats for people who wont change their ways, I don't think its constructive.

                Walking on eggshells to me has a slightly different connotation. I walk around eggshells around trans people, I will specifically not give my honest opinion at all to avoid setting off their fragile feels. I'm not looking to give them constructive criticism like I was with Musky, I just want to go about my day without setting off an exploding trans rage bomb, and I'm not invested in trying to reason to with them

                It's not counterproductive at all, you're assuming what I'm trying to accomplish is to fix things, go back to where we were. That is impossibro. We cannot move forward, we move sideways.

                Yeah, I was assuming at the time you sent that you were simply expressing your anger and wanted her to take some responsibility, rather than trying to end things in a cathartic fashion. I may have totally misread the situation

                I was doing a bunch of things all at once, but I don't know if a cathartic end is one of them. Penghy was before Melody, she died of liver failure. Otter was before Penghy, she died of liver failure. Here's Mel. There's more to this than my feelings, but they're involved too. It's a big tangled ball of bullshit.

                Talk about her to all of us and see how quickly she gets a rage on at you.

                Double standards with women. Don't get mad, just change your expectations to whatever they think is normal until they realise it's actually not normal.

                I done that with my wife and 5 minutes later she stopped doing something because I done the same thing with other women.

                That’s one way to deal with it, behave in a similar manner.

                But that lets the woman lead. You are taking your cues from her. And that leaves you open to a woman whim.

                I’d leave her. You misbehave, I leave.

                cant we just all get along

                If she was revealing private things about you to Smoke, then I would understand your frustration. But from my understanding, she was simply telling him what vegetables you enjoyed.

                Yes, you can politely ask Melody to not talk about your vegetable preferences to someone you dislike (Smoke). But she can also politely refuse. Sure, she could be a good friend and comply with your request, but she is under no obligation to. You cannot police someone else's private conversations.

                In my opinion, not wanting Melody to tell Smoke your vegetable preferences is bit of an overreaction.

                There's no way you're freaking out about vegetable preferences alone. I think there's more going on. I need more context. But in my opinion, you kinda overreacted man. Do better, be better, play better. I know you can, Musky. You're better than that.

                I love you man. But it's only because I love you so much that I refuse to lie to you, and so I must give my real opinion. No lying allowed, even if it might hurt you and even if it's something you probably don't want to hear.

                Anyway I'm gonna hump my pillow and pretend it's you until the situation is resolved. If the drama isn't resolved by my 1000th hump then you two need to cut ties with each other. I'll be keeping an eye out. This friendship seems too unhealthy to continue.

                          bullying from Musky against Mel

                          I really fucking hate most of what you say socks, but in this case, it's not only blatantly obvious, but well worth supporting in order to get through to Musky in hopes he can improve, be civil, and behave - or inspire him find help to do so. And of course it's necessary to defend the innocent, Mel, who's done nothing out of order.

                          Much offence was taken, not given, and with all that stolen fencing Musky built an enormous ego tower of drama.

                          You asked her if she was talking about you to others behind your back, she said no.

                          She lied.

                          You're not in the wrong at all, she's lying to you, betraying your trust and disrespecting you.

                          Dunno, if you can't trust this woman to exercise some self control and not use you as a gossiping piece, then there's a decent chance that down the line she could demonstrate the same lack of self control and morals and cheat on you, and neatly cover it up with her habit of lying.

                          Not sure if you're married or what but I'd start thinking about things between you two if I was you.

                          She's in the wrong, all you did was type a mean message over text as a response. She's currently stabbing you in the back.

                          Might not be the most moral thing to do but maybe start talking to other women, maybe you'll be lucky enough to find one who isn't a Judas.

                          You don't know what the fuck you're talking about. I was literally in a friendly group phone call with these two guys a few days ago, and apparently I am not allowed to talk about Musky's vegetable preferences. I was not gossiping, we were just talking about Thanksgiving dinner. It was not mean spirited in any way.

                          [–]CarbonDioxideHead 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (5 children)

                          Thank God I'm not married to you luv.

                          You lied to him, you have cheated on him, and you're still calling and talking to guys when you're married? Yikes.

                          Yes, you did gossip about him. Here's the thought process:

                          He told you something he was vulnerable about, in private. You were aware there was a bit of shame or insecurity there, whatever it may have been.

                          You told other people about it because you knew it'd probably make them laugh. He was conscious about what he told you, and you used it as a joke and spread it to others regardless of how it'd make him feel.

                          You gossiped about him.

                          Let's say you told him something embarrassing, like "I have to wax everyday or I'll grow a moustache"

                          He goes on a call with two girls and he tells them about that and they all have a good laugh. "Hahaha she should grow it out and be like Steve Harvey lol"

                          He made you the butt of a joke and gossiped about something you're sensitive about.

                          See how that works?

                          Anyway let's be honest, you're a pretty shit wife. (Think your married, could be wrong)

                          You're a liar, which means he can't trust you. You're a cheater, which means this man is gambling with raising a kid that isn't even his.

                          You're upset that he calls you a whore and a slut?

                          He spoke the truth.

                          I think he'd be better off divorcing you. You both don't seem religious so it's not like your marriage is that committed.

                          "Until death do us part... in the eyes of the government"

                          Like, what's the future for you two?

                          You have kids, you keep cheating on him and lying to him, you become a single mother and a nasty custody battle ensues.

                          "It's a foolish man, he who builds his house on sand."

                          Musky should've walked when you cheated on him.

                          Unless you two want to bring kids into a broken home and play custody wars, I think it's best you split up.

                          God help Musky, cursed to be bound to a Judas.

                                  This, IMO, is exactly correct. She betrayed him. He needs to move on, and cut her off. Let her live in her misery, don’t get play in the mud with her.

                                  He’s all ready entertained this too much.

                                  Top left is the first time it happened, bottom right is the second, top right is the third, bottom left is not a separate incident but I included it for consideration.

                                  The vegetable thing is because this story she shared was something I told her privately about common veggies I have never tried. She plays it off like I'm being a weird asshole over nothing because it is insignificant. But it doesn't matter what the private thing she shared with another guy was, I have asked her repeatedly not to discuss me.

                                  I feel this is not only disrespectful and a blatant disregard for my feelings, but the bitch doesn't even have the decency to own up to it. She's always trying to weasel her way out.

                                  u/shill-for-freedom I know everyone just sees me blow up at her, but goddamn, wtf more can I do besides just not tell her anything.

                                  Well this is basically what you always have to do. You have to amend your behaviour as you learn what other people are like, you can't do much to amend their's.

                                  I'm a very private person but the rest of my family are very open. I know if I tell my mother something strictly confidentially I might as well tell the whole world so I don't tell her much. No matter how much I shouted and screamed at her as a kid it never changed the way she behaved. In fact I've never known someone to change their level of openness when it comes to talking about other's lives. It's one of those things that is pretty much set in stone so you have to work around that. Looking at the screenshots she clearly doesn't get what you are concerned about and that's not something you can teach her.

                                      Musky is a big baby with a big ego incapable of understanding how shitty he is so that he can evolve and remedy his ceaseless crap.

                                      Well, it's a domestic partnership. It's not identical to marriage but just saying I'm married is easier than explaining it. Didn't mean to bump a month old comment for shits and giggles, was looking at things you said that turned out to be particularly prescient.

                                      Consider investing into a reliable ready reference you can pick up and study to better prepare yourself for engaging the opposite sex. I'd suggest that you get yourself a copy of Doc Love's "The System: The Dating Dictionary". Doc Love, who until his passing was also known as Tom Hodges, wrote a weekly advice column that's archive is mirrored on several mens focused sites and a podcast. His media is a bit pricey, but it's a solid foundation a guy can branch out from in RP aware circles. I'd suggest you review his advice column to decide if his view on dating and relationships is aligned with what you aspire for yourself. To save yourself a search, give this scribed link a gander to find out if his book is something you'd like to add to your library.

                                      This is a huge part of why internet relationships are a horrible idea. It can get very emotionally fraught, sensitivities run high, feelings get hurt, and there's only so much nuance that can be conveyed in text.

                                      I have you guys on here as internet friends, but if things got any more personal that that, I'd have problems, too. I think it would be healthier for Musky to back off of this friendship entirely, as it seems to be causing him emotional distress, and this distress is pouring out in kind of passive-aggressive ways into the rest of the forum.

                                      If a friendship is becoming emotionally difficult and is effecting your ability to think clearly or be happy, end the friendship. It's not worth it. Musky, you have a wife in real life. You have male internet buddies on here you can talk to and share pictures of your cat, tobacco, and adventures with. You don't need an internet girlfriend.

                                      And if I had been incredibly specific with someone about not sharing any details at all about me with another party and they went ahead and did it anyway, I'd be cheesed off, especially if there was supposed to be some kind of trust involved. It seems one party is taking this friendship way more seriously than the other party, and this may be a sign that the friendship is not healthy for either person.

                                      Things might be kind of a trainwreck now, but it hasn't been all bad.

                                      this distress is pouring out in kind of passive-aggressive ways into the rest of the forum.

                                      Socks claims this is the most comments a Saidit post has ever gotten. I'm not so sure y'all are right about this being a bad idea. I am seeing no negative outcomes, only positive. Except maybe my ire at some people's behavior. All energy flows according to the whims of the Great Magnet.

                                      as it seems to be causing him emotional distress

                                      That it is, and it's hard for me to deal with. But everyone gets an entertaining post from it, I get good advice, Mel sees maybe my position is not as ridiculous as she initially dismissed it as. She's getting less shy too, that seems positive. And maybe, just maybe, we can save her from drinking herself to death.

                                      What's a little bullshit and noise compared to that?

                                      I appreciate the advice, I mean to come off as I disagree necessarily.

                                      And if I had been incredibly specific with someone about ((not)) sharing any details ((at all)) about me with another party and they went head and did it anyway, I'd be cheesed off, especially if there was supposed to be some kind of trust involved. It seems one party is taking this friendship way more seriously than the other party, and this may be a sign that the friendship is not healthy for either person.

                                      You nailed it.

                                      Pretending to care about her drinking problem (which you aired to the world, have never heard it from her) while verbally and emotionally abusing her... driving her to drink. lol

                                      I'm sure she feels very cared for and supported in her battle against addiction when you call her a stupid fucking whore over a vegetable comment. No one even cares and no one even clowned you. I made 2 jokes because your overreaction to this is absurd and displays a psychotic level of insecurity. If you remember, the initial conversation just led to me and Shills talking about delicious ways to prepare said vegetables.

                                      Yeah, you're totally saving her by calling her a stupid fucking whore over nothing and posting your private conversations to this forum. lol

                                      Fuck you, you little bitch. I'm sick of these women dying on me. I want to see you talk to someone dying in pain for a year when they can't do anything for it and then dare say that to me.

                                      You juvenile little punk.

                                      I'm sure she feels very cared for and supported in her battle against addiction

                                      What the fuck is care and support going to do? Ignorant motherfucker.

                                      I have rarely seen such an awful take. I assume this is Socks, only you spout drivel this off base.

                                      You ignorant retard, that has nothing to do with anything. Read the 3 or 4 intelligent comments here and try to better yourself, or at least don't inflict your idiocy upon me.

                                      Interesting how you are the common denominator.

                                      What the fuck is care and support going to do?

                                      If care and support is too hard for you, you could also try not driving her to drink with hate and abuse.

                                      That's ANOTHER totally retarded take.. damn, you are in rare form. Machine gun retardation firing full bore. I met the last three in the same place, people just tend to die there whether I'm involved or not.

                                      you could also try not driving her to drink with hate and abuse

                                      Another one, goddamn dude, you're blowing my mind one person could be this ignorant.

                                      Hey, Musky. I'm seeing overall, the results of this have been negative. People are piling on you, you're getting your feelings hurt, and it seems like you're putting too much emotional importance on this friendship with Mel. I'm not even sure how it's a friendship if you feel betrayed, de-valued, and not listened to.

                                      I'm gonna be honest; if I met a woman who was married, and she said that she needed e-friendships with guys because she "just connected with men better", I'd call nonsense. She needs to connect with her husband and get off of these e-friendships before they spiral into something painful like an emotional affair, heartbreak, or a serious misunderstanding. Seems like that could be what's brewing here.

                                      Mel either is not seeing this relationship through the same lenses that you are, or perhaps you're a little too into her. Or both. Either way. I don't see how this unfolding issue has been emotionally helpful for you. I'd end it.

                                      Huh. This seems like a warm friendly Saidit hug to me, it's such an outpouring of love and support, and it validates a number of my issues. I feel as if maybe perhaps resolution has not been achieved right now, it will be soon, and everything will be just as it should no matter the outcome. I am loathe to try and force it. It would be like trying to improve on an ant hill. We would only be capable of crude movements and ruin an intricate design we do not fully comprehend.

                                      I'm gonna be honest; if I met a woman who was married, and she said that she needed e-friendships with guys because she "just connected with men better", I'd call nonsense

                                      I wouldn't blame you. I don't think this is that exactly. There are some factors fairly unique to this particular situation.

                                      You're welcome, Musky. You're a good, decent guy and you deserve better than to invest 100% of your limited emotional energy into a relationship that isn't going anywhere, and is causing you stress and disappointment. I hope you find the resolution you're looking for, and can take care of yourself, mental health wise and otherwise. The smartest moves I've ever made over the course of my life have been to emotionally or physically walk away from dynamics that were just a source of pain, confusion, unrequited something, or loneliness. A relationship that leaves you feeling lonely or in doubt isn't healthy.

                                      You have hobbies, talents, interests, and a cool fire pit in your backyard (hand picture). Focus on the stuff that's real, helpful, and restorative. thumbs up
