Because it takes slightly less mental energy to sit and stress than to do the thing.
  • I have to deal with depression at the moment. I am unhappy with some circumstances in my life. Since unemployment could happen soon, it would be beneficial, if I would apply for some jobs. I even asked some friends if they knew about vacancies. But for some reason I just can't do it. It is enormously frustrating. But reading about symptoms here and realising it actually is a symptom helps me with self compassion.

  • Emotionale Taubheit: Ich, Mann, abgestumpft
  • Ja, das sehe ich auch so. Wieviele Männer leiden oder depressiv sind, weiß ich nicht, kann mir aber gut vorstellen, dass es wie du sagst tausende oder sogar auch mehr sind. Der Punkt mit dem Auseinandersetzen mit Gefühlen bzw. Psychotherapie halte ich ebenfalls für möglich - zumindest ungewohnt dürfte das für viele sein. Ich weiß nicht, wie man das anders oder besser machen könnte, aber wenn man da ein Angebot schaffen könnte, das Männer besser abholt, wäre das für Männer begrüßenswert, Das heißt ja deswegen nicht, dass man sich nicht weiter um Belange von Frauen oder diversen Menschen kümmert. Aber ich finde schon, dass jeder Mensch, unabhängig von Geschlecht/Gender/Orientierung ein gutes Leben verdient hat, also auch Männer. Was ich sehr befremdlich finde: Nach identitärer Meinung könnten Männer keinen Sexismus erfahren - wobei ja gerade diese Aussage im höchsten Maße sexistisch ist.

  • Rule
  • It's also very funny, when someone shares the idea of a 4-day work week (while the wages stay the same as before during a 5-day work week) many are like "that is not possible, how should it be possible to compensate that?" And nobody ever says that about unpaid overtime. Which is a unbelievable high sum each year!

  • NSFW
  • I agree. It's not in that way that women are always victims and men are always perpetrators. Every human being regardless of gender deserves to be met with respect and decency.

  • Wish I could beam this into every persons head
  • Thank you very much, y'all! I don't have ADHD, I "only" suffer from depression... I sometimes have a look in ADHD-posts though, as I read some symptoms can be similar and I actually can see myself in many posts. This is very helpful for me. First, because I can see there are others who understand the struggle but also getting hints how to reframe the situation or how to challenge a certain kind of mindset. The last days were hard for me, couldn't get anything done and didn't know why... So, once again, this helps to understand myself and have some self compassion.
