Someone told me the other day it would be good for me to share my insecurities with some people. Since there's no better place to do it than a place where no one knows your physical self, I thought this would be a good idea for a thread.

Itt: the things that make you feel insecure.


For me, in no particular order:
- I have a deep-seated fear that maybe no one really likes me, and everyone just says nice things to me out of pity
- I like my body, and my face, but I worry that other people think I'm too skinny or nerdy, and that they think bad things about my appearance. I'm a very sensitive person, so I tend to take insults or comments right to heart, and don't forget them for months, even if they're from people I don't know.
- I have terrible social anxiety, in some situations. I've improved this a lot over the past few years, but I used to hardly be able to leave the house. Today I'm having a particularly bad bout, and am struggling to go to the store to pick up food, because I'm worried about what the cashier will think about me buying food so late.


There are way more but I don't want to overwhelm anybody. Let me hear about what you guys worry about?

Post more of what you want to see they said.
I am going to try that. And I like to see when people do things, be it cooking, cleaning or creating things. :fluf3:

I am building a thing, maybe you guys want to see the thing get built or give me input or ask questions?

I'm just throwing it up here and then we can see if anything happens?

I recently watched this video, and I wanted to talk about it a bit.

This video claims to be a joke and made up, but I feel like he might be on to something here. Does anybody know if there are any real philosophical concepts based on the things he describes?


For anyone who can't watch the video, "Misinformed" is a youtube channel where a stick figure gives incorrect and fabricated, but often paradoxically commentative or insightful information on a given topic, for the purposes of comedy. This video in particular is on "the meaning of life", in which he describes the potential meaning of life in terms of attaining and finding a balance between 5 core concepts:

Paper: Money, financial security

Clout: Reputation, influence and power.

Juice: Any sort of material possession or short-term experience that brings you joy.

Sauce: The things you learn about yourself and the memories you make. Things that make you happy and give your life meaning, but don't have measurable material value.

Yeah, I'm well aware of the fact that Paper can help you with you juice and thus your sauce. Paper and can get you clout and juice, and juice is what gets your sauce. So, while money can't directly BUY sauce like it's a material thing, it can still help you get it in in less direct ways.  This is what I mean when I say that rich people cannot be unhappy, but people always misinterpret what I say. Maybe this will help explain things better.

But, perhaps there are elements to sauce that paper, clout or juice cannot help you obtain. That's the real question. But the big one is Basedness. Rich people tend to be less based than poor people, and I wonder if there's a causality there?


Man, this all sounds like gibberish without context!

For reals, my daughter of 8 got a Nintendo Switch this year. It's hers.
I still call the shots when she gets to play it and she's not allowed to take it out of the house yet. But she gets to decide who can play with it and I will not play on it myself when she's not around.

I own the PS4, laptop and 2DS.
But both of them can play with those on designated times.

I do want to add a 3ds game that would amuse my son the best.

So I came home to this directly above my bed, and a huge can of wasp spray on the nightstand.

Yeh, I know how that goes. I have yet to find any really good way to reduce the feeling significantly besides throwing logic at it relentlessly, and processing it until I just get tired of it. Very energy-ineffient though.. And it has a way to persist.
The big annoyance is in managing to suppress it to.. say, 10%. But it's still there, so it's hard to feel like you are getting anywhere with it, as with some stuff, the mind refuses to appreciate and give proper gravitas to those gradients.
Then I proceed to consider the mind to be silly, and stop trusting it on this information. If already paranoia, might as well be paranoid about the paranoia.
This confuses the paranoia to give one a little break.

I must drop off for a while at least, must continue attempts to make body more functional.
Take care of yourself and try not to go too crazy, I'm sure you will be alright.

The advantage in those situations was, the robber never checked the cellphones I gave him very well because he was thinking and felt rushed in how much time was left before the police arrives.

This weekend, I've spent 2 hours trying to say the German word "reich", and I think I've finally succeeded in pronouncing it right.  (The "r" in that word denotes a voiced uvular fricative, and the "ch" denotes a voiceless palatal fricative.  Neither of those speech sounds occur in English.)

Try saying
Car, Arm, Flower, Row, Rowdy.
Notice the tight shape of your lips while you make these sounds, how they pull almost completely together to create an almost growling sound. This is the American "R" and is unused in most languages because of how difficult a shape it is for your mouth to form. It is one of the last sounds children learn to make, and as such is only used in one other language in the world.
Other languages, such as Spanish, Brittish, or French, pronounce their "R"s with a much more open lip shape. The French "R" is pronounced far back in the throat, almost to the larynx, with a very open lip shape.
The Brittish "R" is done with the sides of the tongue pressed lightly against the upper jaw, creating a very soft sound more akin to a sigh.
The Spanish "R" takes two forms, the trill and the tap, both of which are made by curling the tongue upward with an open jaw, and allowing the tip to press against the frontal roof of the mouth, almost sounding like a very light "d"

I read at least four different books where it turned out the government was behind literally every single supernatural event in the book. Son's ghost haunting his mother after a bus crash? Actually psychic powers and kept in a government facility. Woman haunted by what appears to be the corpses of some men that violated her when she was younger while lat the hospital? Government gaslighting. It just kept fucking going.

In all of them the protagonist was some manner of single woman that meets a picture perfect all-american hero dude. One of the books in particular had a sex scene where he described them as having the most heavenly possible sex for two hours straight while the man at no point pulled out.

And in ever ysingle one, the villains were written incredible one-dimensionally. I dunno, maybe I hit an awkward streak of his career or something, but they became downright interchangable.

So I came up with this idea like, forever ago. During the season 3 hiatus, specifically, while everyone was wailing over how AliTwi would ruin things, I hoped to at the very least show that it could be handled in an interesting and creative way, no matter how unlikely. It's not so much a fic as an intro and a concept, a few pages to show what could have been. I was always kinda proud of the idea but I never put it out there, and I just recently found it again so I wanted to get some opinions on it. And I hope to get a good amount of feedback because I'm sure most of you have at least seen past season 3!


The episode would start a short time after Twilight's coronation, and reality is starting to set in on her. She's beginning to realize that this changes everything., if not with her friends and peers, then with her entire future. No matter how much she thinks about it, three things keep plaguing her about the idea of suddenly becoming a princess.

First, what has she been spending her whole life working up to? Was it this? She'd studied magic for years under Celestia, so that she could help ponies and become somepony great like Starswirl the Bearded. Someone who uses their vast understanding of magic to make life better for everyone, some kind of mage. That... doesn't sound like a princess. She'd attended the same courses in school as the other gifted unicorns, and while she did plenty of extracurricular work, everything she'd done had been about understanding magic. Even moving to Ponyville, in Celestia's own words, had been to experience and understand the "magic of friendship". Looking back, none of that pointed toward becoming a princess. In fact, being a princess would only seem to hinder the future in magic she'd been working toward. Would the career she'd built her entire life around just be cast aside because she got a sudden job she wasn't expecting?

Second, old choices aside, being a princess is a big deal! Twilight may be egotistical at times, but she could never think herself the equal of Celestia or Luna, not only after what little she's accomplished and done for Equestria. Sure the argument could be made that saving Equestria multiple times (with her friends) is plenty, but Twilight herself doesn't give herself credit so easily. And princesses do far more than just save the day, they put themselves out every day to lead hundreds, if no
