Recognizing we’re single and alone, especially when our friends are in happy relationships or happily married, is a harsh truth to recognize. The good thing is, though, that once you accept the fact that you’re alone, you might just be happy with it.
This person said, “I’m 29, I have no friends, I’m single, not planning or thinking to date someone and I don’t like anyone, I just like myself.” At least they realize they like themselves and don’t need anyone else around them (via Reddit).
It’s hard being Mr. Nice Guy. They always say the good guys never win. That’s why, when this internet user said “being nice all the time is s**t,” we can’t help but agree. These are the thoughts we never say out loud, especially as nice people.
The nice guy is always the one to finish last. People also take advantage of them, since they usually allow a lot of behavior to slide. Sometimes, it’s almost better to just be the mean guy and get whatever you want. At least people won’t mess with you (via Buzzfeed).
Some of us strive for success. We pour our heart and soul into our goals and hope they turn into something. It takes trial and error to figure out what works best for us and how we need to organize our goals and what we need to strive for. This person shares one of their inner thoughts about being a former achiever.
They said, “I am a former overachiever who has amounted to nothing. The hopes and pressure from those around me made it harder to realize that being good in school doesn’t mean you are smart, and if not for them I might have set my sights lower and succeeded at something.” It’s unfortunate that they’re figuring this out too late and happened this way. At least they’re aware of the problem and can begin finding a solution (via Buzzfeed).
We all put up facades, one way or another. This person is one of them. They said, “I come off like I’m a carefree person, but I’m the most paranoid person ever.” These are some of those thoughts carefree people never share out loud. It makes us wonder if there are more people out there who have the same thoughts, or if it’s just them. At least they’re being honest about what’s going on deep inside and can express their paranoia online.
You would never think that a carefree person suffers from major anxiety and paranoia. It makes us wonder what’s going on inside for most of the people we meet. Are we living in a world of lies? (via Buzzfeed)
