stupid first world problems you're dealing with

I know what you're going through, it truly does suck. Godspeed my dude. I just left a 5 year relationship (that was nowhere near as tumultuous as yours, but which had become stagnant and in which I realized I did not love her the way she hoped), and she's reacted the same way your partner did. Trying to negotiate, feeling as if she never saw it coming, telling me I am making a huge mistake (possible)...

 

Staying determined in our convictions is all we can do, really. We made our choices for a reason, and it sounds like each of us did it with both people's long-term best interest in mind. Have faith that you did the right thing.

 

Feeling like an awful person will pass - seems that's a natural part of causing a heart to break, of course. But we will all heal, and you are not an awful person.

 

Thanks mate, really heart warming post. Well I'm trying to stay calm and ignore the hateful SMS I've been receiving the past few hours mostly because yeah, I think I did the right thing - and the most reasonable one. It's probably harder to be the one who sees what's wrong. Takes a lot of courage.

 

Good luck with what your dealing with as well :flower:

 

 

Ouch! Still sounds like you did the right thing. Sometimes people will react and realize they need to work on themselves, and sometimes they'll just throw a hissy fit and do fuck all, maybe find another person to leech off of. Either way, it's not your job on this planet to fix someone. Maybe the conditions of your relationship will appear very different now in retrospect. Cheers man

If it's on a weeknight, you should just schedule your bday shenanigans for the weekend.

 

My FWP is that a few months ago I spent a lot of money on a bag. It has great embroidering on the custom art that I designed and it's a nice, durable bag, but it's fucking enormous. It's great for groceries and for traveling, but I need to buy another bag that's more pragmatic for my day-to-day business.

Pro Tools 12's video engine is the worst fucking thing. It's so finicky with what codec of video it wants to play correctly. Even if I convert it to what usually works, sometimes it will just not play at all. Wasting my doggamn time when I already don't have enough to do my work properly.

I was about to have my shower, but then two ambulances pulled up outside my apartment, and medics entered my building with a stretcher. Now I'm waiting to see who the unfortunate tenant is. I really hope it isn't the nice elderly lady that always chats with me in the elevator.

FWP: my stereo receiver has been very faintly picking up a talk radio channel when it's switched to aux (and it doesn't matter what freq I stop at if I switch over to the tuner)... so whenever the music stops in my headphones, I can hear whispered news stories about donald trump. all my wave bands are belong to them :wtf:

- I think I'm underpaid, which wouldn't bother me that much except that...
- I think everyone I work with makes more money than me but I don't want to ask because I think it will piss me off
- I feel like they rub it in my face, maybe subconsciously
- I spend a good chunk (majority?) of most days helping/teaching them, and, increasingly, managing them
- I'm not learning as much about stuff I'm really interested in as I used to
- My commute has become a bona fide soul-sucking commute instead of a nice brisk walk
- I work in one of those stupid noisy open offices

I should probably get a new job but I'm shit at writing resumes and I'm too introverted to ace an interview.

When I was in college, the venue that I worked at would pick up the radio broadcasts in our guitar amps from a nearby radio tower. This would happen in a 1,500 seat theatre and reinforced at 90dB.

Is it an AM or a FM station?

Back in my Amiga days I had a sampler called Technosound Turbo - clearly the thing was terribly isolated as it seemed to pick up the radio of any police cars nearby for some reason. Totally shit me up as a kid as I'd no idea where the ghostly voices were coming from ...
