Re: I just feel so broken..Am I?

It does sound like you're working out enough, lol! My suggestions are just ideas to get you thinking. You don't have to try any or all of them or do them exactly as I suggested. =) I'm glad you like some of the ideas, though! I do hope they help. I think the main thing I want is to just be "nor...

Re: Sensual Healing: Navigating Dating, Loneliness and Mental Health as a Young Adult

Hey, Buddyboi21 - I completely agree with and second everything 0PT1M15T1C and Siân have said. I just wanted to pop by and add... Being vulnerable is really scary and tough. But I think you find that if you work on being a little vulnerable with people - leaning on your friends when you need to lean...

Re: Is this a creepy comment or is it a compliment?

In boundaries, a lot of the times we talk about what boils down to "intent" vs "perception". The intent is only the inner thinking of the person who is performing the "action" and can explain why someone makes a comment/acts a certain way. The perception is how the pers...

Just because an occurrence wasn't explosive or physically violent doesn't mean you have to downplay how creepy and upsetting it was. An older man made an inappropriate comment towards you and made you feel unsafe. You're now changing how you dress and physically trying to avoid him in order to avoid...

Re: best time to take pregnancy test

When it's best to take a pregnancy test can actually depend on the brand you buy and how sensitive it is! For the most accurate result, you should wait one week after your first missed period, but there are some tests that you can receive an accurate positive on the first day of your missed period (...

I don't have much to add answer-wise. I do want to say that if you're having/have been having unprotected sex (like it sounds like you might have with your girlfriend), it would be a good idea for you (and your partners) to go get an STI checkup , if you haven't already, just to make sure that every...

Re: Trouble recovering

Those all sound like really fun things to do! Could you maybe swap that Magic set you have that you think of as belonging to your ex for a new set? You don't have to conquer the set and giving it back to her is a nice thought, but might be a bad idea in practice for a lot of reasons. So, maybe just ...

However, I will note that the link between birth control and breast cancer is weak...

Re: Crush

Too, I imagine a lot of people fantasize about having intimacy with their crushes. There's certainly no reason to beat yourself up for desiring intimacy.

Do people often tell you that you're dramatic or "exaggerating" your feelings or is this something you just feel about yourself?

That makes a lot of sense, Belcano! When you're involved with an emotional abuser, you tend to be forced to take responsibility for a lot .
