Moving your stuff from one phone to another is a mess

Solution: Make new friends (although it is difficult for introverts like me, that seems to be the only solution) :/

Problem: When you have very few friends, you feel like you have to say 'yes' to everything...because they're the only ones who's gonna help you when you need it.

Dunning-Kruger Effect:

People with little knowledge of a field will often overestimate their competence compared to more experienced players.

American Idol was a great example of amateurs who overestimated their ability to sing.

8. I can't control the rest of the web, but I can control my corner of it. What I'm getting at here is this stuff is important to me – this is my data.

Certain folks might think my music is inconsequential but I don't. This is why I don't leave these memories in a random Big Tech corporation's hands. /END

In my specific religious community, men were presented as being unable to help themselves. We're all just carried away by our lustful passions.

And women were pigeonholed as being these fragile flowers that couldn't handle the raw animal magnetism of a man's pursuits. For that reason, their virtue had to be protected at all costs.

How is this not comedy?

When I was active in a religious community, there was a lot of sexual repression that manifested itself into bizarre absurdism. Here's opinions I heard:

1. "Jesus is my boyfriend"
2. "Why would a man ever sleep with a woman if other men were available to him?"
3. "Men just care about sex, but women want love"
4. "Wearing pants and having short hair is the gateway to lesbianism"
5. "It's a woman's job to put on the breaks when things get frisky"

Looking back, I go, "What the actual f*ck?!"

In situations where you can, do all you can. In situations where you can’t, do what you can to change your perspective.
