2023.06.10 06:55 Successful_Ability33 Crosstrek Trim Recommendations for a Retiree

Hello everyone!
I'm a long-time lurker, but a first-time poster. I'm posting to help my mom who is currently looking at a Subaru Crosstrek as she enters retirement. As a bit of a background, I have a 2023 Sport in CGK and my mom absolutely loves it, primarily due to its size. She has driven in it and really likes the features, safety, comfort, ride, ground clearance, and overall sportiness of the Crosstrek. She drives a 2013 Toyota Avalon, and while it has served her well and has a lot of cool features, she does not want something that long or that fancy and it definitely needs to be replaced soon. This brings me to my main question, do you guys have a specific trim recommendation for her? This car would primarily be driven in a small town (in Texas so no mountains) with the occasional trip to see family about 4 hours away (also in Texas). If I had to guess, maybe would be driven around 7000 miles in a year max. Currently, I'm leaning toward the Sport or Limited trim for the larger engine. She might also look at the Premium trim due to price, but wouldn't mind paying a bit more for the 2 upper trims if it really is the best option. Do you guys have any other perspectives? Anything that maybe I'm not thinking about? Any accessories that you all would recommend? Thanks in advance!

2023.06.10 06:54 ProperChampion4097 Into the venomverse RP F4A

As a huge venom fan, seeing the latest spider verse movie has me wanting to play around with a multiverse venom RP more than ever. eventual romance is a must because I am soft and crave it 💝 we can discuss details further if this post intrigues you. With romance in mind, the oc pairing can either be SYMBIOTE X HUMAN, spider person x venom person or SYM + Human x sym + human! I'm open to all~ It simply depends on what plot and story dynamic we wish to explore the most. If you'd even like to play as a canon venom that's completely fine with me. Mid to long term is my preferred length, discord only! As long as you like to write + plot a unique story I'm sure we will have lots of fun ^
As far as a basic rule of the multiverse I have two possible scenarios we could work with.
Scenario #1 'VENOM' is just the classified name of the first symbiote who connects with an earthling no matter what multiverse they can be found in. Their roles vary due to the fact there are thousands of multiverses filled with various 'venoms'.so SYMBIOTE OC's are more than welcome to be a part of the multiverse shenanigans. We could legit take any route hero, villain or anti hero.
Scenario #2 Follows more of the classic spider verse motto of 'anyone can be spiderman'. Though it's not as wholesome there's a lot more anti heroes and villainy involved but hey that makes it more fun! Especially considering venom is the one alien that can survive relocating to another multiverse with ease.
TROPES//tidbits I would love to incorporate:
-symbiote lore that is more unique than what canon provides. -SECRET pining -two incompetent dumbasses taking on the multiverse and easily winning despite all the odds stacked against them. -the most terrible meet cute: 'I wanted to eat ya cus you looked tasty'
Remember 18+ as always, I look forward to seeing your message :)

2023.06.10 06:51 Bat-man-2054 SD profile review, take 2

Thanks for all of the advice provided on my last attempt. Hopefully this is an improvement. Further feedback welcome.
About Me
In all of my relationships, vanilla or sugar, I have tended to play the role of nurturing provider.
I'm currently in a happy marriage that is ethically non-monogamous. I have more love to give and am seeking a second partner for this.
I'm an entrepreneur who travels a lot to chase new clients for my businesses.
I'm a big foodie and love trying new restaurants as well as cooking for two. I enjoy planning trips as much as taking them, and do a lot of both.
Seeking
I'm looking for an ongoing relationship with an emotional connection.
I understand the need for and am happy to provide financial support.
I'm generally only in the city two weeks per month so our dates would have to be scheduled around that reality. Travel together is possible if your schedule allows. Regardless, I would very much like to keep in regular touch between dates.
I am usually only available on weekdays, so you would need to be too.
I enjoy mentorship and so if you have life goals or skills you want to tackle, I'd love to be your partner and guide.
In addition to seeking a genuine emotional connection, I would be looking for someone who is fairly physical: I like to hold hands and cuddle, I like a lot of kissing, I love when a girl jumps into my arms.
I like someone who is smart and ambitious but open minded and willing to learn. I also like someone who is willing to teach me about her passions, preferences, culture and expertise.
Physically, I'm attracted to most characteristics. As long as you're slim or athletic, your height, colour, etc don't really matter to me.

2023.06.10 06:50 ThrowRA658233 Is there something wrong with me? 24f just dumped

Hi all long time lurker first time poster. I really need advice right now. So i (24f) have really had an awful time in love lately. And I mean awful. I got broken up with back in October by my at the time boyfriend of almost a year and a half and I didn’t enter the dating field until early March. Well in March I dated a guy then he ghosted after a month. Then i didn’t date again until April and in April I met this amazing guy I mean he was everything I wanted/could ever want, sweet funny, made me laugh, made me feel safe he likes animals, literally everything I look for in a guy! In the time that we were together we spent almost every weekend together and it was amazing I mean I thoroughly enjoyed it. He did as well, I stayed over at his a couple of times and hung out with his friends and one of his family members and it was all going great! I didn’t bring up the boyfriend word or girlfriend word until we were going to be intimate, when I said that being intimate was a boyfriend privilege. To which he asked if I wanted to be his girlfriend and I said yes. Well last weekend we went out with my friends and his family member that I met and it all seemed like it was going great, we all had a good time and got back to his place at a decent hour and the following day we all hung out. The next day he and I were hanging out and had a little tiny disagreement, but worked it out and cuddled on the couch before going home. Well When he was talking me home he almost said the L word a couple of times when we were kissing goodnight, and everything seemed alright. I went inside to go to bed. The next day everything seemed normal again, the usual texting pattern, the same energy, making plans! I mean we were planning to maybe do the county fair, then on Wednesday he responded to my message from earlier in the day at 12 AM. Then my message from Thursday morning went unanswered. Then today I sent him a video of some shorts I was thinking of buying and he didn’t respond. Until about fifteen minutes ago sending me this long basically break up text. Saying “I wanted to reach out and let you know what's been on mind lately. I want to be completely honest with you because I do care about you. I feel awful doing this over text, but felt this was the best way for me to get my thoughts out as clearly as possible. I think that your an incredible woman and love our time together but as I’ve just got out of a long term relationship just before moving out here. I just think that I’m not comfortable or ready for that commitment again right now. I'd love to remain friends if you're open to it. I'm here if you have any questions or want to talk at any time” I never told him anything about a serious or long term thing, rather I wanted solely to spend time with him and enjoy our time together. I did make jokes about keeping spare pajamas at his but I continually made a point to say it was a joke. At this point it seems like there’s something about me. Like maybe there’s something wrong with me like why else would this keep happening? I understand not wanting to get into a serious thing, I mean my ex and I were looking at rings for goodness sake! I really do think there’s something wrong with me if this continuously happens, all I want is to give someone other than my dogs all this love and affection I have inside. I’m wondering if someone could’ve even said something that caused him to change his mind. I mean that’s the only thing I can think of other than something being wrong with me Can anyone offer any insight?
this isn't my first heartbreak but it hurts so much, I feel like he was just using me or something... My mom was saying she thinks he may have scared himself with the thought of he and I being together. And I'm also so confused about him saying that he wasn't ready, because if he wasn't ready why the heck would he pursue me in the first place? why would he call me "my love" if he didn't want anything serious? I mean if he'd been thinking about this why even pretend to entertain the idea of making plans?!

TLDR: I 24 F was dumped over text by 23 M out of the blue, I feel like he used me and dumped me and that somehow I did something wrong

2023.06.10 06:49 LiwanagKairos Stuck in a stalemate with a girl I like (long but TL;DR at bottom)

Theres this girl in my class that was actually our class president and for some unexpected turn of events we became really close and belonged to the same friend group. We hit it off as bestfriends because of how much we seem to fit each other well and we really enjoy each others company. We decided for fun to pretend to be a thing because weve got nothing else better to do. Over time I started to have feelings for her but I kept it hidden since I dont want to ruin the good that we already have. For a while I thought she would never know because she was super dense even when everyone around us knew. Eventually however she did realize and she confronted me about it saying that she felt betrayed because she thought its all just pretend and she didnt know it suddenly turned real. She told me I have a special place in her life and that things became tolerable in my presence and for that reason she wont distance herself from me. She told me that shes confused with how she feels but she doesnt want me to be separated from her. She doesnt want me to get hurt and she doesnt know what to do about it anymore. She ended that talk by saying that I should never think that I mean nothing to her and that I am the best person for her ever since we started our college life. I assured her that I wasnt expecting anything from her and that my feelings are something that was outside my control and that I promise I wont get hurt with whatever she wants to do with our situation. Fast forward a few months and weve come to be closer than ever before and somehow I noticed that shes starting to get quite clingy with me. I have no idea if this is just how she is but all I know is that I enjoy every moment we have together. We also belong to the same organization which contributed to how often wed spend time together and foolish as it sounds I admit I've been starting to give her the princess treatment even though were not really together. After a while we had to attend a certain event in the organization which lasted till late at night and we still have things to do by tomorrow. Now, our school is really far from our hometowns and it was summer vacation so we didnt have much choice on where to stay so we rented out a room for ourselves. We laid down next to each other and ended up making out that night. We were sleep deprived that night so we didnt get to talk much after. We went back home and had a long rest. Around a week later we had another event to go to. Btw I surprised her on both events because I didnt tell her I would come since my presence wasnt really necessary. Anyways, it was a two day back to back event so we needed a place to stay for the night again. Luckily she has a friend that let us stay the night. We had dinner there and went to sleep. After a while we had a chance to make out again and we did but this time I had more leeway to explore her. After a while of making out I asked her how she feels about me and she told me that shes confused and she isnt ready for a relationship because she has plans for her life and such. I told her I know she isnt ready and Im not planning to ask her out soon. She admitted that she does love me and we continued our nightly activities. Although we didnt get to homerun since she said she doesnt want to, I did leave a few marks by which she got mad at me by the morning. I also tried to convince her to shower together which she adamantly refused. After that she began to ignore me the whole day and I was profusely apologizing but she just continued to ignore me. I made a bag of peace offering with a mini bouquet of flowers I picked around our school and a few snacks that I think she would like. She refused so I snuck it inside her bag. We had a chance to talk even though she really wants to go. She told me her parents might kill her if they see the marks but she will be okay. She asked me for time and space which I did since I want us to be okay. Its been a few days now and shes still not talking to me and Im confused as to what I should do. Should I keep on waiting without reassurance? Should I message her every now and then to check up on her but also running the risk of setting her off? Im not really sure what to do. I asked for insight from the friend we stayed with and she told me to give her time. The friend said she told her she felt like a sinner and was scared that the friend was judging her since its her first time doing dirty things. The friend also told me she told her she wasnt mad at me. Overall she told me to be patient and avoid annoying her. So here I am waiting for maybe a miracle without knowing what happens next. I really like that girl and I'd bear it as a huge regret if she would hate me or start avoiding me after what happened. Shes a very prideful woman so I probably wont expect that she would chat me first even though I told her to come back whenever she feels comfortable. Im getting more and more anxious the longer she doesnt talk to me again but I cant start conversation yet since it might be too early but if it takes too long she might no longer come back. What should I do?

TL;DR I have a bestfriend who I really liked and is really special for me. I made a move on her one night and now she is asking for time and space. I dont know how long it would take or what should I do or if I should really do something instead of waiting it out. Getting a bit anxious.

2023.06.10 06:47 _plantain_flakes_ 28 [F4M] Toronto - Looking for Something Kind of Wonderful

Hi there!
I was hoping to be incognito and message guys on here, but the majority of posts that I've seen are months old I can’t tell if the OPs open to interracial dating. Anyway, here I am with my post!
Physically: I’m a 28 year old Black woman. 5’4”, curvy, long braids or whatever hairstyle tickles my fancy at the moment, brown eyes, and fat ass (sorry, it’s the truth).
Personality: an introvert who thinks she’s an extrovert, generous, hard working, loves to cuddle, comic book collector, and rom-com and horror fanatic. I love a funny guy but I need you to know that it doesn’t include self-deprecation, bullying others for brownie points, racism or any other ism, and insulting other women. I literally find goats jumping funny, it really won’t be difficult to make me laugh.
Extras: I work in marketing, arts, and development and have a side business that’s currently on pause for the summewarm season. I drive; I have two degrees (you don’t need to have a master’s, it was literally the worst thing I’ve ever done); left leaning and prefer you to be as well; I love to travel and would love to have a travel buddy; and I speak three languages.
Looking for someone who is:
This is not a definitive list and but if you've made it this far - and are interested - send me a message with a little burb about yourself and let's see where it goes!
Talk soon :D

2023.06.10 06:46 Personal-Bet-9449 Is it worth incurring huge fees to change daycare?

Backstory:
My husband recently had our second child (now 7 months, the other is 2). I went back to work a month ago and my husband works very long hours so things have been quite tough (and to be honest quite lonely) for me. We have decided to move closer to my husband's work so he can be around more to help out.
Problem:
Unfortunately the move means we have to leave our current daycare that we absolutely LOVE and find a new one. Finding places is very tough in the new town. Luckily we found them a place in one (daycare 1) and signed them up. However, ever since I have been having such anxiety about their new daycare 1 - it's all I can think about and makes me very emotional. There is nothing wrong with the new daycare, it just seems a bit corporate compared to our family style daycare and we toured it over lunch while all the children were asleep and didn't get a good sense of it. I communicated by anxiety to them and asked if I could meet the teachers or talk to someone and they were polite but kind of brushed me off (or maybe didn't understand me properly as there is a language barrier) and said I would meet the teachers on the first day at the introductory meeting. I also talked to some parents who had children there who were generally positive about it, but not effusive.
Yesterday I toured daycare 2 in the new town that I absolutely LOVED, and although they initially said they don't have space, now they say they may be able to squeeze us in. I was there for an hour and a half chatting to the owner in the morning with the children running around. There are so many things about it that remind me of our current amazing daycare, and there is a garden.
However, as we already signed a contract with daycare 2 we will owe them two months fees for two children, which is an anxiety inducing amount and there is no way to get around it. We could eat the cost, but our savings which we worked very hard to build up would certainly take a hit. Another option is to go to daycare 1 for two months, then transfer to daycare 2 but I hate the idea of moving the children to a new daycare twice in two months as I think it would really unsettle them on top of the move. Or we stick with daycare 1 and try it out, but it will be a year before there are new spaces at daycare 2 again.
Question:
Is there anyone who has been through anything similar before who could share their experiences? Are there any options I am missing? I really blame myself for signing the contract with daycare 1 in the first place - my youngest child was going through a month long sleep regression and I think I was just too exhausted to think it through properly.

2023.06.10 06:45 Hispanicatth3disc0 [Off-Topic] Reddit's API changes. Will they impact the way you personally interact with the subreddit?

Hey everyone,
Hope y'all are doing well, enjoying this summer of winning soccer from the team! It's so incredible what this team is doing and all the years leading up to this since the club's inception. Totally worth the wooden spoons in my opinion!
Anyway, back to the topic on hand. How are the changes to Reddit's API policy and the death of third-party apps going to affect your browsing and interacting with the subreddit and the community as a whole?
From the very beginning of the subreddit about 95% of all the moderating I did was on my mobile phone using Relay for Reddit. I think it might have actually been Reddit News at that point actually. Anywho, the point is, this got me wondering how everyone else is going to be changing the way they interact here with the death of third-party apps? Will you just make the switch to the official app? Look for a different community on a different site? I'm just curious how y'all will get along with the changes.
For myself personally it's going to be rough losing my favorite app. I haven't been super active in the last couple years anyway, (life has had some real crazy curve balls coming my way), and just as i was starting to pick back up where I left off this all happens. It's a bit demoralizing. I miss you guys and I love this community and what it's become. The long journey from rumor of a team to MLS success has been an incredible ride! And I'm going to try to do my best to stick with y'all through the changes.
So what are your thoughts? Feel free to commiserate here. Unless it's just me, then please have a laugh and enjoy your time here.
CINCINNATI HERE WE GO!
Love,

Embrace the Power of Shadow Work: A Path to Self-Discovery and Personal Transformation

https://preview.redd.it/x1aqahrge45b1.jpg?width=5324&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=74a6faf25596a64b824af9f25b49241475aae109
In our quest for personal growth and self-realization, we often focus on the light within us—the positive aspects that we readily embrace and celebrate. However, there exists a hidden realm within each of us, a realm where our shadows reside. These shadows encompass our suppressed emotions, fears, traumas, and aspects of ourselves that we may find difficult to acknowledge.
Shadow work, a profound and transformative practice, invites us to explore these hidden depths. It beckons us to embrace the parts of ourselves that have long been shrouded in darkness and uncover the buried treasures within our shadows. By engaging in this inner journey, we embark on a path of self-discovery, healing, and personal transformation.
In this blog post, we will delve into the realm of shadow work and explore its significance in our lives. We will discover the transformative power it holds and how it can help us embrace our True Self. So, let us embark on this illuminating exploration together.

Understanding Shadows

Imagine the shadowy corners of a dimly lit room—the places where things are often overlooked or left forgotten. Our inner landscape holds a similar space, where the shadows of our past experiences, fears, and unhealed wounds reside. These shadows manifest in various ways, influencing our relationships, self-perception, and overall well-being.
But what are these shadows? They are the parts of ourselves that we have pushed away, suppressed, or denied. They are the unexpressed emotions, limiting beliefs, and unresolved traumas that silently shape our lives. They can manifest as self-doubt, patterns of self-sabotage, or a persistent feeling of being stuck.
However, these shadows are not to be feared or condemned. They are invitations to embark on a journey of self-discovery, growth, and healing. By exploring our shadows, we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves—our desires, fears, motivations, and wounds. We peel back the layers that have kept us disconnected from our true essence, allowing us to step into our authenticity.
Understanding our shadows requires courage and a willingness to delve into the depths of our psyche. It involves facing the uncomfortable and the unfamiliar, but it is through this exploration that we find liberation. As Carl Jung, the renowned psychologist, once said, “One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
By embracing our shadows, we reclaim the fragmented parts of ourselves and integrate them into the wholeness of our being. We gain self-compassion, acceptance, and the ability to navigate life’s challenges with greater clarity and resilience. Shadows become our allies, guiding us toward personal transformation and the realization of our fullest potential.

The Power of Self-Reflection

Self-reflection is an invaluable tool on the path of shadow work. It serves as a guiding light that allows us to explore the depths of our being and gain a profound understanding of our hidden aspects. Through self-reflection, we embark on a journey of self-discovery and personal transformation.
When we engage in self-reflection, we create a space for introspection and inner exploration. We set aside time to pause, detach from the external world, and turn our attention inward. In this sacred space, we invite our shadows to come forth and reveal themselves. We embrace vulnerability and honesty as we delve into the depths of our psyche.
Self-reflection grants us the opportunity to witness our thoughts, emotions, and patterns of behavior without judgment. We become observers of our own experiences, observing the ebb and flow of our inner landscape. Through this conscious observation, we gain a deeper understanding of the subconscious beliefs and conditioning that have influenced our lives.
As we shine a light on the shadows within, we uncover buried memories, unresolved emotions, and aspects of ourselves that have long been suppressed. We encounter parts of ourselves that we may have disowned or ignored. This process can be uncomfortable and challenging, as it requires us to face our fears, traumas, and insecurities. However, it is in this courageous confrontation that true healing and growth can occur.
Self-reflection also allows us to identify and examine the patterns and behaviors that no longer serve us. We gain insight into the underlying causes of our self-sabotaging tendencies or limiting beliefs. By bringing these patterns to our conscious awareness, we empower ourselves to make conscious choices and create positive change in our lives.
Furthermore, self-reflection cultivates self-awareness, which is a powerful tool for personal growth. As we deepen our self-awareness, we gain clarity about our values, desires, and True Self. We develop a stronger connection to our intuition, enabling us to make choices aligned with our highest good. Self-reflection helps us distinguish between who we truly are and the external influences that have shaped us.
Incorporating self-reflection into our daily lives allows us to maintain an ongoing dialogue with ourselves. It becomes a regular practice of checking in, reassessing, and realigning. It provides us with the opportunity to celebrate our progress, acknowledge our achievements, and course-correct when needed.
In the next part of this series, we will explore practical self-reflection techniques that you can integrate into your daily routine. These techniques will empower you to deepen your self-awareness, embrace your shadows with compassion, and continue your transformative journey of shadow work.

Embracing Compassion and Self-Love

In the realm of shadow work, compassion and self-love serve as essential companions on our journey of healing and transformation. Embracing compassion and self-love allows us to approach our shadows with kindness, understanding, and acceptance.
When we embark on the path of shadow work, we encounter aspects of ourselves that may be wounded, vulnerable, or in need of healing. These shadows may represent past traumas, unhealed wounds, or aspects of ourselves that we deem unworthy or undesirable. It is in these moments that compassion becomes a gentle guide, reminding us to hold space for ourselves with tenderness and empathy.
Compassion allows us to recognize that our shadows are not to be feared or rejected but rather embraced as integral parts of our wholeness. It teaches us to extend understanding and forgiveness to ourselves as we navigate the depths of our being. With compassion, we create a safe and nurturing environment within which our shadows can be acknowledged, embraced, and ultimately healed.
Self-love is the foundation upon which our journey of shadow work is built. It is an act of honoring our intrinsic worthiness and acknowledging that we are deserving of healing and growth. Self-love invites us to treat ourselves with kindness, patience, and unconditional acceptance as we explore the depths of our shadows.
As we cultivate self-love, we learn to recognize that our shadows do not define us but rather offer opportunities for growth and transformation. We understand that the healing of our shadows is an act of self-care and a testament to our commitment to living an authentic and fulfilling life.
Nurturing self-love involves practicing self-compassion, setting boundaries, and engaging in self-care activities that replenish our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It involves embracing our strengths and celebrating our progress, no matter how small. Self-love invites us to prioritize our needs, honor our emotions, and create a loving relationship with ourselves.
Through the practice of self-love and compassion, we develop a deeper sense of connection to ourselves and others. We realize that our shadows connect us to the universal human experience, reminding us that we are not alone in our struggles. This understanding fosters empathy, allowing us to extend compassion and understanding to others as they navigate their own shadow work journeys.

Cultivating Authenticity

At the heart of shadow work lies the quest for authenticity. It is the journey of uncovering and embracing your true self, free from the constraints of societal expectations, conditioning, and self-imposed limitations. Cultivating authenticity in shadow work invites you to explore and integrate the parts of yourself that have been hidden or suppressed.
Shadow work provides a sacred space for you to peel back the layers of conditioning and societal masks that may have veiled your True Self. It is an opportunity to unravel the beliefs, fears, and patterns that have kept you disconnected from your true essence. Through this process, you reclaim your personal power, align with your values, and live in alignment with your deepest desires.
As you delve into shadow work, you encounter aspects of yourself that may have been rejected, silenced, or deemed unworthy. These shadows, though initially uncomfortable, hold valuable insights and lessons that can guide you toward self-discovery and growth. By embracing your shadows and integrating them into your consciousness, you gain a deeper understanding of who you truly are.
Cultivating authenticity in shadow work requires vulnerability and courage. It invites you to explore the depths of your emotions, thoughts, and desires without judgment or self-censorship. It encourages you to honor your unique experiences and perspectives, allowing your True Self to shine through unapologetically.
Through the process of embracing authenticity, you cultivate a sense of self-empowerment and liberation. You no longer feel the need to conform to societal norms or seek external validation. Instead, you honor your own truth and express yourself authentically, even if it means stepping outside of your comfort zone.
Shadow work provides fertile ground for nurturing authenticity by shedding light on the masks you wear, the roles you play, and the expectations you hold. It challenges you to question the narratives that have shaped your identity and invite you to rewrite your story from a place of authenticity and self-empowerment.

Transforming Limiting Beliefs

Our beliefs shape our reality, influencing how we perceive ourselves, others, and the world around us. In shadow work, we encounter the limiting beliefs that have held us back, hindered our growth, and kept us trapped in patterns of self-sabotage. Transforming these beliefs is a key aspect of the shadow work journey, empowering our minds and opening up new possibilities for personal transformation.
Shadow work allows us to uncover the deeply ingrained beliefs that have been operating beneath our conscious awareness. These beliefs often stem from past experiences, conditioning, and societal influences. They can manifest as self-doubt, fear, unworthiness, or a sense of being undeserving of love, success, or happiness.
As we engage in shadow work, we bring these limiting beliefs to the surface, shining a light on them and questioning their validity. We challenge the stories we have been telling ourselves and explore alternative perspectives that empower us. By doing so, we create an opportunity for profound inner shifts and personal growth.
Transforming limiting beliefs requires a willingness to examine our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors with compassion and curiosity. It involves questioning the origin of our beliefs and exploring how they have influenced our lives. Through self-reflection and introspection, we gain insight into the ways in which these beliefs have shaped our experiences and held us back from reaching our full potential.
In shadow work, we engage in powerful exercises and techniques to challenge and reframe our limiting beliefs. We replace self-defeating thoughts with empowering affirmations, create new narratives that align with our true desires, and develop a mindset of abundance, self-acceptance, and self-belief.
By transforming our limiting beliefs, we free ourselves from the constraints of our own minds. We open ourselves up to new possibilities, expand our perception of what is possible, and cultivate a sense of empowerment and self-confidence. We recognize that we have the power to shape our reality and create the life we truly desire.

Conclusion

Shadow work is not a journey for the faint of heart, but it is a journey worth taking. By embracing our shadows, we embark on a path of self-discovery, healing, and personal transformation. It is an invitation to explore the depths of our being, unravel the layers that have held us back, and step into our authentic power.

2023.06.10 06:44 throwawayaacc800190 addicts hanging around house

this is probably a dumbass post to make, but im desperate so fuck it. my addict uncle moved into a house with me and my grandad about 2 years ago at this point. there are addicts neither me or my grandad know around the house nearly every day from morning to night. my mom used to be a known addict in this area, she doesnt live here anymore, but she knows who does drugs around here. there is one girl, who im guessing may be a prostitute that comes here, who i believe my uncle is “dating”. shes homeless so my grandad feels bad for her. she sleeps in my uncles broken down car in our backyard every night. i can see and hear her leaving out of our fence every morning. my grandad is aware of this and is fine with it. its extremely obvious shes on some shit real bad, but my mom, me, and my sister all have been telling him this and he doesnt believe it. there are 3 other men who come to our house, who are also addicts, who are known thieves. one has warrants, one has arson charges, and one has basically just lost his mind. i would love to call the police on all of them, but i wouldnt have a good enough reason to the police, i dont believe, and my grandad would probably despise me for it. my mom knows all of their names without me even explaning them to her. i can basically just tell her their first name and she knows them + their appearance, and if theyre someone to worry about or not. im the only one out of my sister and mother that lives here, so whenever i say something to my grandad about these people everyone gets angry at me because hes old, but whenever i try to do something myself about these people around our yard, its like he tries to protect them and he gets extremely angry at me about it. i wish i had it in to just not give a single fuck. i need help on what to do in this situation. im gonna get a lot of people telling me to get my own place, but right now im trying to start therapy+go to a psychiatrist and get disability because i have major depressive disorder and its getting extremely out of hand. i want to live with my mom. shes clean now and has been talking about getting her own place and i know she wouldnt allow shit like this to happen around a place she lives. 2/3 of the addict men coming around here snitch to the police about other addicts. my mom said they’re narcs, so i feel like the police will maybe just brush off whatever the hell i tell them. i called the police on one of the men one night because he was bothering the homeless girl while i was trying to sleep at 1 in the morning. (my grandad got mad at me about it). all he got was a warning and trespassed, but hes always at the laundry mat right beside our house. one of the men that used to hang around here was being looked for by the police and they came shining a flash light into my bedroom at 11 pm. i was asleep and my dog was losing her mind, understandably. i thought it was one of my uncles friends and i yelled at them to go the fuck away, not realizing who it was. this shit is getting so ridiculous to me and i have no clue what to do. i feel stuck. long ass post, sorry. im desperate at this point.

2023.06.10 06:43 meloonicscorp [TOMT][MUSIC VIDEO][90s-00s] A green woman covered in leaves climbing through tree branches, also 3 weird, R2D2-looking fellas.

Okay, so this is about a music video that I've seen *once* on TV but somehow never forgot. I'm trying to keep this as short and concise as possible, but my memories are incredibly foggy.

Description of the music:

Not sure what to call the genre, but somewhat dreamy pop? If I had to name similar artists I'd say something like Enya or Björk (more on that later). I don't remember what the beat/tempo was like, but it had to be slow with long, gentle synthies.
You can hear a singer, that I am 70% certain to have a male voice, singing and humming in an emotional but gentle way. The voice was not deep and raspy but quite clear and smooth. If I had to point to a similar sounding voice, i would say "Angel" by Massive Attack. I will refer to this voice as Voice 1 from now on.
Also, there was a female-sounding voice that sounded somewhat more aggressive and I am sure that you could mainly hear it during the chorus? Anyways, before I forget: To me the female voice didn't sound like she was speaking a language or singing lyrics, but more like chanting weird gibberish (Which is probably because I couldn't understand the language, more on that later). If I had to compare it so something, imagine the chorus of "Adiemus" by Karl Jenkins, but slower and more angry/creepy. I wouldn't completely rule out that it was some kind of throat singing, but that is very speculative. This Voice will be called Voice 2 from now on.
Language? Ok, the more I think about it, the more uncertain I become. I don't think it's likely that the song was in english, but I wouldn't completely rule it out either. It was certainly not german (because that's my mother language). I have reason to believe that the song might be Turkish or Greek. I'll explain later. Clarification: When I say the song might be turkish, it is not "traditionally turkish" with turkish instruments and scales etc. this is *only* about the language of the song.
Instruments? No clue. There could be acoustic guitars or something of similar gentleness, all I remember are long, gentle synthie pads.

Description of the music video:

So this is, what keeps popping up randomly in my head for more than a decade now. There are two pictures that I simply can't forget:
1) A woman with green skin, covered in leafs is climbing around tree branches in some kind of jungle or forest or oasis. Her movements are slow and somewhat threatening and she is always visible, when Voice 2 is singing. In my head I call her the "poison ivy girl" because her costume/design reminds me of her a lot. I don't remember any hair color. Imagine one of these Na'Vi people, but green, creeping around in the forest. Important detail: It's very likely that the woman is a real actor, but it is likely that her surroundings are CGI.
2) Three people, wearing cloaks and some sort of futuristic headgear. It is very reminiscent of R2D2, metallic white, with circuit-looking patterns and small lamps and stuff. I call them the "wise ones" and they appear multiple times throughout the video. They don't do anything afaik, they just stand next to each other and look at something outside of the frame. I remember these 3 people appearing in a completely different, desert-like setting, other than the poison ivy girl. That's why I mentioned 'oasis' earlier. I have a strong feeling that a majority of these scenes are CGI, with the possibiliy that they are real, human actors.
Here is a rough drawing of that scene with a few extra explanations
Why 1980s-00s? So, back in 20something, when I saw the video, both the song as well as the video already looked and sounded "old" if you know what I mean. I am dead-certain that it's from pre 2010, and judging by the CGI it shouldn't be older than 1980s. 1985 at most. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a 90s thing.

Important context:

So I watched the video between 2006 and 2009 on "iMusic One", which used to be a german TV-station playing only music videos. Once MTV and VIVA played less and less music, iMusic One tried to fill that niche. The station later was renamed to "iM1" and there is barely any info available about them anymore, besides this german wikipedia article and a handful of short newspaper articles.
The reason why this is interesting, is because iM1 had some sort of catalogue of music videos, and the viewer could pick the music video they wanted to see, and add it to the queue by sending an SMS with a corresponding code (for a boatload of money, of course). This means, that if someone was able to find that catalogue, the search might be a lot easier. But I couldn't find anything, I wouldn't even know which person to contact. Since the TV Station went bankrupt in 2014 they basically completely vanished from the face of the internet.
The second reason why this is interesting, is because there are many germans of turkish origin and it wasn't uncommon to see turkish music being queued on iM1. That's the reason why I consider it to be more likely that the song might be a turkish or mediterranian one. I wouldn't bet my entire money on it though, iM1 had a very diverse music rotation and songs from all over Europe, as well as the songs that used to be popular at the time were featured. It honestly was the best way to discover new music before Lime[redacted] :P and there were a lot of videos (such as the one I'm looking for) that would never have been played anywhere else at that time.

Things to rule out:

Anything german.
I am not familiar with Enya's entire discography, but I doubt that it's her, even though the vibe matches. When in doubt, just suggest something and I'll double check.
It's probably not any big name such as Massive Attack either. It also wasn't a popular chart song during 2006-2009. I doubt that this song charted anywhere tbh.
I'm not a huge Björk-Nerd, but I once clicked through all her music videos and didn't find what I was looking for. Note: The "All is full of love" video by Chris Cunningham is certainly not it, but it still has robots in it and the same, relaxed vibe. I once talked to a friend about this and they instantly recommended Björk and I agree that it might be an artist very similar to her.
In The Waiting Line by Zero 7 is not it. The vibe matches, it mixes futuristic imagery with natural things, it has loads of old CGI, but it it is certainly not it. It certainly is one of these videos that make me instantly remember the video I'm looking for, though.
Other than that I'm personally completely unfamiliar with that kind of music, since I'm more into Rap or Metal these days. When in doubt, just give me anything that vaguely matches my description, even if it contradicts many things I've described. All this is based on very foggy memory.
Thanks in advance!

2023.06.10 06:43 VerryUniqueUsername 20M complete nerd looking for other nerds

Hi there. I’ve been spending a lot of my summer alone and would love to have some people to talk to. I haven’t got any bit of life figured out and am kind of lonely. I spend an unhealthy amount of time playing video games and I’m a nerd at heart. I prefer people who talk a lot since I struggle finding things to talk about at first.
I’m someone who’s had a difficult life, but I’m in the process of getting over it. Someone told me that people who have difficult upbringings have an easier time relating to each other, but I don’t think that’s true. I think that as long as you’re empathetic, that’s what matters most.
Anyways, I’m looking for people to talk about nerdy shit with. I love playing older games and would love people to talk about them with. I just finished the original System Shock and am in the process of replaying Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. It would also be fun to find people to play games with, but I understand that not a lot of people play games. I’m also a reader, I cook, I write, and I love getting obsessed with new nerdy things I haven’t heard of before, so what are you waiting for, shoot me a message!

2023.06.10 06:42 OfficialAztrias {Discord} [F4A Playing F] A New Dawn Avatar

“Sooner or later though, you always have to wake up.”
——-
She had dreams. Of flying high throughout the sky and bursting through clouds. Her large shadow piercing the ground below as wings flapped. A loud cry of large bird called throughout the sky.
They awoke, a new arrival in question woke with a jolt. Hair tied into a bun and her light eyes blinked waking from a long sleep. A cryo-sleep. Her eyes cracked open, staring blankly at the metal paneled wall in front of her face. A blue glow emitted the only light in the container. Smacking her lips, she glanced around the small space that she had been sleeping in for the past few years. She frowned curiously at the small droplet of water floating above her. Reminding her of where she was.Eve licked her mouth uncomfortably, trying to get some moisture back in her mouth. Glancing above her head she caught a glimpse of the ship outside the small window.
Pandora.

Hello! I am looking for another partner to indulge in a roleplay over the universe of Avatar. The beautiful world built and directed by James Cameron. I have loved the film and comics since they came out and have been excited for avatar 2. Having seen it, It was amazing and rekindled my interest
A little about myself. I am 21 years old, I write a few paragraphs ranging from one to ten depending on the situation and scene. I write in third person and love talking ooc. I thinks its nice to talk to my partners and get to know them
Hope this interests you so we can build a world together!

2023.06.10 06:41 National-Storage-807 bf still close with ex- concerning or no?

I, 21f, have been dating a guy (39) I met through mutual friends for about six months. Obviously being older, he has a more rich romantic history than I do which is tough at times. However, it's a relationship with 1 ex that has me troubled in particular. They dated for at least three years, breaking up in 2021. During that time, they traveled the world together, met each other's families, and posted tons of cute lovey pictures which are still on facebook and instagram today. They reconciled a few times in 2022. You don't have to scroll long to find them kissing on my bf's page, and I actually thought he had a girlfriend still when we first met due to this. They send each other memes frequently, and recently, she sent him a cute travel picture of them to which he responded "those were the best of times." He doesn't usually let me see what they talk about, but I saw that message and had to ask. They unfollowed each other on instagram, but he followed her back recently. He gets very annoyed and defensive when I express any concerns and says he doesn't want to talk about it. All he will tell me is that he broke up with her because he felt they were better as friends and that he has no romantic interest in anyone but me. I hate to be untrustworthy and insecure, but I can't help it. I want to be respectful of their history and bond together, but it hurts looking at his insta and seeing him call her all the same pet names he calls me. They traveled the world together and have so many memories. She is closer to his age. I am worried he broke up with her too soon and I am a rebound that he loves but not in the same way. I am trying to not let my immaturity get in the way of a good thing, but I have no experience with this. What can I do to get past this? Is there reason for concern here, or am I paranoid? TLDR; I am having discomfort with the relationship my bf shares with ex, and this bothers him. Looking for a solution that works for both of us

2023.06.10 06:41 cconti Is anyone using a KD100 Keydial with a Huion tablet?

I have had a H610PRO V2(8192) tablet for a few years now with few if any problems.
I just purchased a Huion Keydial KD100 and I am not sure what to do. Everything works poorly if at all and mostly it's a software issue, I am sure.
For starters, on their website there are 2 drivers you can download for the KD100. Already I felt bad vibes when I saw that because there is no explanation whatsoever. One is older by a month, but otherwise they give no explanation which one you should use.
After I installed the older one, it recognized my tablet as well as the KD100, except that it wiped out all my shortcuts. No big deal, right?
Nope, big deal.
To make a long story short, the two devices don't work well together.
First it was the Keydial wheel that refused to let me program it. When I finally it allowed me to change it, it wouldn’t go back to the default settings.
Then the tablet disappeared completely., I restarted, changed USB ports, prayed at the temple of Athena. Nothing worked.
Finally I had the brilliant idea to look for the tablet drivers. Bingo, those found both devices, except that when I am assigning and naming shortcuts every other time it crashes my... Keyboard?
I don't know how else to describe it. My keyboard stops working, in all apps (including the driver settings) but not completely. I use Notepad to check the keyboards (I tried a BT, a Logitech wireless and my old, cable one that I keep on my tower desktop in case I need to work on the BIOS.
Nothing works, except that randomly it would try to exit Notepad (asking me to save, cancel, etc. or it would bring another app to the front.
I have taken to saving a backup for each time I make a change (I lost too many) so that saved me from having to redo my shortcuts over and over.
I submitted a ticket, but Huion are notorious for not giving a crap. Plus so many different things went wrong with the keypad and the tablet, I had to summarize a lot (like I am doing here).
Crazy stuff. It was like they intentionally wrote code to drive their customer nuts.
If anyone else has such a combo, I'd like to hear how it's going.
Next I am going to try to open the backup files and see if I can make my own and I wait for new drivers to be released.
Other than that, I love the keypad. It make working in Photoshop so much faster. I was going to buy one for my wife, but she may inherit mine and I'll switch to something a bit more reliable.

2023.06.10 06:39 eefiseef I (M16) am losing hope in friendship with friend (M18)

So, I mentioned this before. For sake of saving time, I'll post a link here to show the general backstory of our friendship, and another event that made me doubt it. (https://www.reddit.com/relationship\_advice/comments/wfi0tg/friend\_gets\_mad\_that\_i\_didnt\_message\_him\_when\_he/) Anyways, so Cooper (Code name for my friend in case you didn't go to the other post) and I have been remaining friends since that incident but, things just haven't been the same for a while. I couldn't tell you when things changed or when I noticed they changed but, they certainly have. Now, I'm not amazing at describing how I feel, so please bear with me.
So we've continued to play games and talk, etc. But, things are different in the sense that, for instance, when we play games that have a slight competitive edge or are at all difficult, he will get mad. This carries into him blaming someone with a very passive-aggressive method. Usually a high pitched shift in voice (for comedic effect, I guess??) and him saying something (for instance if he goes down in a game) "Oh, we're just not gonna pick me up, okay." in a fake happy voice. Or like, if we get scored on in Rocket League, he'll say something like "Oh, no one is back playing defense". This usually only occurs when it's Cooper and I along with some friends. Whenever it's just me and him, he rages and yells, maybe hits something depending on how bad it gets but he never usually openly confronts me. If he does, he will mumble something antagonizing toward me and if I respond, he refuses to say anything else. All of this has kind of led to me not feeling like we're even friends. Because I feel like anything I say and do while we're having a good time will be used against me in a later argument or something of the sort, because he's done that before. This leads to me usually just being silent when we talk to each other over a call. I can't bring myself to really say much. I kind of just limit myself to 1 word or sentence responses. I'm not entirely sure why, but it's only with him that that happens.
A recent incident happened recently. I had just recently got a new headset and in one of my gaming sessions, I tried to stand up but the cord wrapped around a bunch of things, causing the headset to fall. Didn't think anything of it until I realized it broke the right headphone. I was upset that it broke and thought that the durability was not great considering one fall put it on it's last legs.
I messaged the group chat that Cooper, 2 other friends of ours, and myself share and ping one of our other friends that we'll call Charlie. Charlie and I have the same headset. I pinged Charlie and told him to be very careful with his because apparently they're super fragile. I was upset and was talking to him about how it sucks that it seems every time I get enough money to buy something I need, something breaks or needs a repair. Enter Cooper a few minutes later, telling me that I should've gotten the warranty. I said I know and I would've gotten it but I didn't expect the headset to be so frail. He responded telling me that it was unlucky but this is why I need to get a job so that I have money to fix things and sent a few messages getting onto me about getting a job. I told him that I have already discussed the job situation with my parents and that I don't need someone lecturing me on that when I have it figured out.
We left it on that but this has me thinking. It just feels like me and him are always arguing. Like, when we're friendly together, we have a good time, and our friendship has been great, but it's just gotten to the point where now I don't know if I can see him as a friend. I feel like I can no longer trust him because of how quickly he goes from happy and friendly towards me one day, to pissed off and angry the next. I feel like I've put up walls around myself because of him. I feel like I can't be myself and every time I join a call with him without someone else there, it just annoys me more than anything. It's come to just small talk, him going on about what has happened in his day/days since we talked, him asking me how I've been, where I can only bring myself to say one word, then listen to him go on about something else for a few minutes until we both get bored and leave. It's so strange. I don't know if it's me, like maybe I have some social condition or something that is affecting us? I'm not sure. As much as I would love to stay friends, some of the stuff he does is just so irritating and really leads to our friendship being a coin flip of who's going to get pissed off during the time we hang out. And as much as I would assume this is just me, he's annoyed one of our other friends who's impossible to annoy several times. He's talked alot of shit behind our other friends backs which makes me have no doubt he does the same to me, he has a habit of constantly getting onto one of our other friends when we lose in a certain game. It just feels so toxic when he's around, but I feel like I can't cut him off because of the good times we have as well
I'm at a loss and need some assistance or guidance. Can anyone give some advice on what to do?
P.S: Sorry for the long post. This has been brewing for a while.
