Hey FunnyPics community! I hope you all have a great holiday season, whatever you celebrate!
I also hope that this community of ours can help you feel less lonely if you are feeling like that this season. If anyone needs someone to talk to, I'm happy to lend an ear. :)
@JakeMartin, I was ranting on the Discord earlier. There are good people there
@Fairy Squad Mother, I'm glad you got to vent to someone! I hope it helped!
@JakeMartin, yeah, it really did
@JakeMartin, Well, my first Christmas away from my family, and I'm at my ex's house, so that's my Christmas right now
@Devan Lochees, Christmas away from home really sucks. I'm really sorry. Let alone being with your ex... :( I hope your Christmas starts looking up, Devan!
@JakeMartin, It could be worse, I at least get to take my daughter home with me on the 26th for 12 days, so that's worth the holiday away from home! Especially now that she's old enough to actually remember me this time around!
@Devan Lochees, Yeah, that sounds like a pretty great silver lining! I'm glad! And now since she's old enough to have memories, it can be great bonding time with her.
@JakeMartin, Yea, I'm quite excited! Not this time around, but when I get her in late spring/early summer, I'm taking her to the Baltimore aquarium
@Devan Lochees, That sounds like a great trip! One of my favorite memories with my family is going to Monterey Bay in California, so that'll be great for you guys!
@JakeMartin, thanks. I needed that message for this Christmas Day. It’s been a hard holiday. Anyway. Merry Xmas everyone
@Jeffyg3, I'm glad I could make you feel better! But is everything alright?
@JakeMartin, thanks. But it’s my own demons. I’ve struggled with suicide before and got out of it. And I got into volunteering and helping people through their problems. I get a lot of thanks, but I’m a hypocrite. It’s really me who needs help. Seeing people with families, getting married, and the past year my career went down hill big time and gets worse, so for the first time in my life I had to borrow money...relationships don’t last long and I don’t think I’ll be with my girlfriend for very long. Maybe holding onto another couple days. It’s been lonely and it’s hard to see everyone move on around me. I feel like I’m starting to barely hold on to a glimpse of hope. I don’t want any pity or anything like that, these burdens are my own. But it’s always good to get it out there and text it out, even if it’s on some kind of meme app and this text will float away. A little therapy for the soul I guess
@Jeffyg3, For what it's worth, you aren't alone in having those feelings. I'm intimately familiar with them. The reason why I try to help others, like right now, is because it does make me feel better. If it has the same effect on you, then there's no hypocrisy in helping others in my opinion; you're getting yourself a bit of help by helping others! It's hard watching life pass by, yeah. I hope this doesn't sound too cliched and generic, but this quote means a lot to me: "If I base all my success on someone else's sense of happiness, I'm bound to forget to smile and hit the ground as hard as them". To me it's saying that my life might be moving slow, but it's still moving. And I can only advance it by doing things I enjoy. I understand not wanting pity. Shouting into a void is pretty useful sometimes, so I completely agree!
Edit: By the way, I hope you're doing alright today, and I also hope that you have a good New Year!
@JakeMartin, I’m trying 😊 thanks
@Jeffyg3, And honestly, trying is the best thing we can do. :) No problem, I'm happy to help. I just hope I actually did help a little bit!
Oh my God I love it!
@Gruncle Stan, the name alone makes it great
@Gruncle Stan, We all do
Did Erma just go on holiday to *dimension bill is from forgot it’s name* and is now taking the bus back or something?
@fkingdonn, I feel like it’s 2nd dimension but I can’t confirm
@WickedStyx, the Dreamscape maybe?
@ellltex, I just searched it up, I think the dreamscape is when they went into grunkle Stan’s mind in season 1. I’m pretty certain bill comes from the nightmare realm
@ellltex, yeah you’re probably right
@fkingdonn, forgot about that, thx
@ellltex, no wait, Bill lives in the nightmare realm but he destroyed his original dimention (i think)
I'm not crying
