2023.06.02 22:52 Grand-Bid6471 New to the group here is my shitshow of a life.

So its been a hell of a decade for me yall... I got out of the army in early 2013 fresh after a combat mission to afganistan where i sustained a head injury and a lifetime worth of trauma and ptsd.. during the last deployment i was engaged to my stbx and ended up breaking the engagement off while i was there because i honestly didnt know if I was going to make it back alive after a freind died from an ied blast, it was easier for me to dedicate myself to rage and getting revenge... I got back stateside and we got back together and went on to eventually gettting engaged again. Of course with a much bigger ring and all the crow i could ever want to eat. I also had a raging addiction to pain pills and anxiety meds for a few years post exiting millitary.. so there was that .. def not easy to put up with from her side.. about 6 years ago i got clean (totally straight edge) changed my life, no more pills, no more alcohol, got 2 degrees and a good job, got into stellar shape. I did everything in my power to make this woman happy and make up for all of my royal fuck ups. It was my mission to make good on all the empty promises and let downs. I am proud to say that i did however im afraid it may have already been to late..I went to war with my former self and walked through all of my pain and struggle for this woman and i love her for that because i needed thatduring that phase of my life. We ended up getting married 2 years ago now 2021. Honestly looking back it was a band aid type marriage as we had a rough go for many years despite having everything we needed and damn near everything we wanted. Money dosent buy happiness however.
So, 3-4 months ago we found out she was pregnant.. I was over joyed even though we really hadnt been getting along because, well, hope.. she took the news hard and it really left me confused still does. She was excited in some ways but with all the hormones, and having already accepted kids were not in the cards for heus, because of fertility issues (hers) which i was able to accept and move on from but i know she was completely overwhelmed.. She has treated me like total shit since, low key angry with me because i got her pregnant. I absorb her abuse and coldness and try to do the next right thing mostly because she had done this for me during my time of struggle.
On april 21st i found out my younger brother 32 died in my mothers house of an accidental fentanyl overdose and she found him... this killed me guys, to my stbx credit she was there for me and my family all the way. However upon returning home after a week up north for the funeral it went right back to the same old shit cycle where i just kind of eat it for my sake do what she says and then move on.this actually used to work but it seems as if theres just no more happiness to be had.
today i fucking had enough.. after listening to her kick things around and talk to herself out loud so i could hear, as she tried to paint the nursery which is a room we use as storage and is admittedly a little cluttered in there I kind of threatened divorce. I was hoping when i mentioned divorce she would snap to. That was dumb af, and it went the other way she asked me please. At this i lost my shit.. I feel so insignificant and i feel as if everything i put into this relationship was for nothing. I do and do and do expecting nothing in return which is the humble thing to do but it shouldnt be like that in a relationship. I could do house hold chores for 12 hours and she will come home and see that sock on the floor or dish in the sink and all of the sudden its a reason to not be grateful or show any appreciation whatsoever. I feel like i am being taken advantage of as i pay 80% of the bills and have done 95% of the work that went into making our house a beautiful home. I was optimisitc and hoping this was a phase but it is just capitulating everyday and i am startng to fall into a serious depression and i am realizing that divorce is most likely the only option.

2023.06.02 22:26 T_familyAdvice_4567 Life insurance policy has mom as beneficiary but can i have it w/ POA?

My father passed this year and about a month later i found out about a life insurance policy that he had through an employer. The policy names my mother as the sole beneficiary. Short aside: (It’s a long story but my mom has been shitty for many years now and before my dad passed i had to pay for a nursing home and his funeral, totaling around $11k. Also bought mom a car for $7k.)
I had and still have POA for healthcare and financial for my mom. I have a previous post including screenshots of said POA (financial).
i had planned to try to get the beneficiary check sent to me and deposit it into an account in my mom’s name using the POA and then pay myself back out of the account.
But, i just found out my mom got a letter about the policy and with enough time she will get in touch w the insurance company and see that it was sent to me.
I already spoke to a lawyer in my state who said it should be fine for me to take the check, open an account in her name, and deposit it. I just wanted to double check here. She is in the early stages of dementia so i doubt she will do anything except get upset but i just wanted to see what others though and if there could be any ramifications. It’s only $9k so it could help me out a lot but obviously not worth dealing with if there could be issues later on.
Edit: mom is still alive and will be upset to find out if i get this life insurance check

2023.06.02 21:23 Artsfromtheheart Teenage Love

There is so much I want to say to you. I love you and I miss you more than anything. Even after everything you put me through. I sit at home with our 4 month old daughter while you’re out on the streets with your new girlfriend. Your mom still texts me everyday to ask how our baby girl is doing and if I need anything. I really wanted to be with you. I lost myself trying to heal you. But, I still lost you. I’m waiting for the day I get the call that you’re no longer with us. I’m waiting to walk up to your casket, crying. I have so much I need to tell you before you pass. You broke me but I am building myself slowly. I changed myself completely since we’ve been together. I don’t want to be the same girl you lied to, manipulated, raped, hit on or yelled at. I loved you and you loved me at one point too. Until the drugs took over who you are now. Even if we never talk again or see each other again, i’d like to see you happy and clean. After seeing you overdose, it has really messed with me. I lost a lot of respect and feel so sad for you now. Especially knowing you did it on purpose so i’d see you like that. You traumatized me. But, i’m still not broken completely. This new guy i’m with loves me to pieces but i still find myself thinking about you. I still find myself getting sad over thinking about you or what you’re up to. I still ask your mom how you’ve been. Shit happened and changed so fast. You always felt like i’d be right there and right back with you. In the end it feels like it was my loss when it was really yours. You lost me and you lost the chance of ever seeing your daughter again. That little girl loved you too and she loved seeing you. I’m so stressed and it’s not fair. I’m 16, taking care of our 4 month old by myself. Working my ass off and completed school. You dropped out, living in a trap house and you’re on drugs. You have not a care in the world. I really really tried being with you. I wanted to marry you, dude. But i left the man i loved for the man i deserved. He brings me flowers and surprises me with coffee and my favorite food/drinks and he helps me out without even asking. He does it without having done something wrong. The only time you ever bought me anything was when you relapsed or cheated on me. I really loved your family too. They still love me and your sister still comes to hangout. But it’s just sad to me. You’ll never straighten up and we will never be “us” again. A year and a half of my life wasted on somebody who didn’t really want me. I wish I was your side chick because I wouldn’t have had to deal with all of you shit. i wish i would’ve left you sooner or when you went to jail. I was so stupid but i still stupidly miss you so fuckin much. You were my best friend and you knew everything about me. It fucking sucks. I truly wish you the best on your journey going forward and i hope that i don’t have to attend your funeral. You just turned 18, you have sm more life ahead of you. I love you and I care about you so much. I hope things get better and i’ll keep thuggin it out. hopefully we talk again.

2023.06.02 21:04 KKshilling The Cost of Greatness

The Cost of Greatness
What will be the blood sacrifice on your altar of ambition?
I can’t tell you how bad I want it. Some days I wake up aflame. There is electricity crackling down my knuckles, an urgent rhythm pounded into the keys as I type. A river of creation flows out of me as I revel in the act of making. Other days, I mostly eat pretzels. I meander from task to task, completely content with being dead center of the bell curve.
I can’t even tell you what “it” is. Some days I want to be the tech writer. Matt Levine will tremble. Ben Thompson’s email list will be torn asunder. I will be read and admired and praised. Other days I wake up disgusted by what yesterday’s Evan did.
Why did I write till 1 in the morning rather than spending time with my wife? I want to be great, yes, but I also want to be a great husband and son. There is a reason why lots of creatives struggle with addiction, or why many investors I know are on their third spouse. Money and power never come cheap. The only great I should want is a great life.
Perhaps you have felt similar confusion. You also want to be great. (Hopefully you’re saner than me and want to be great at something other than writing.) But still, you listen to that siren song of more.
As life forces priorities to shift, so does your personal definition of what constitutes great. There is a tension; the longer you remain committed to a single cause of greatness, the more incapable you become of being good enough at everything else.
This terrible cost is most obvious in the people who have ascended to the heights of our society. The HBO series Succession, which recently ended, showed it beautifully—for those unfamiliar, it follows Logan Roy and his four kids as they jockey to inherit the multibillion-dollar media empire Logan created.
(Beware, spoilers ahead.)
For me, the climax of the series is the penultimate episode—the funeral of Logan Roy. There, each of the children wrestle with their grief. The youngest son, Roman, collapses mid-eulogy with remorse. The eldest son, Connor, gets sidelined as he has been his whole life. But Kendall, the heir apparent, gives a speech that, my oh my, did something to me. Kendall was abused, degraded, and humiliated by his father. Logan beat Roman, committed Connor’s mother to an asylum, was misogynistic toward his daughter, Shiv, and was generally an evil, vile man. Despite all that, the company he built was great. In the eulogy he gives, Kendall grapples with his father’s legacy:
“My father was a brute. He was. He was tough. But, also, he built and he acted. And there are many people out there who will always tell you no. And there are a thousand reasons, there always are a thousand reasons to not act. But he was never one of those. He had a vitality, a force...that could hurt...and it did. But my God, the sheer, the...the... I mean, look at it. The lives, and the livings, and the things that he made…I mean, great geysers of life he willed. Of buildings he made stand. Of ships, steel hulls. Amusements, newspapers, shows, and films, and life. Bloody, complicated life. He made life happen. He made me and my three siblings. And yes, he had a terrible force to him. And a fierce ambition that could push you to the side.
But it was only that...that human thing. The will to be, and to be seen, and to do. And now people might want to tend and prune the memory of him to denigrate that force. That magnificent, awful force of him, but my God, I hope it's in me.” (emphasis added)
From the moment I first watched this speech, I have had the phrase “my God, I hope it’s in me” rattle through me. Despite Logan’s litany of sins, despite the abuse he heaped upon his children, Kendall hoped to inherit his father’s greatness.
A similar speech will be given at the eventual funerals of our current ruling elites. At Bill Gates' service they will not mention the Jeffrey Epstein connections, only the work his charity did. Mark Zuckerberg’s service will be attended by men festooned with medals, but there will be little mention of his partial responsibility for the genocide in Myanmar. Murdoch, Musk, Jobs—all of these powerful and great people who reshape our world. Maybe these individuals' greatness outweighs their personal complications, but still, they did not ascend without significant costs.
In my own life, my father was an inverse Logan. He was steadily climbing at Fortune 150 corporations, but after missing one too many of my baseball games, he left. He spent the rest of his career taking good, secure jobs that let him be home in time for dinner. He is and was an incredible dad, but he never ascended to the greatness that was promised in his former career. To him, that trade-off was worth it. Being a great family man is what mattered.
On a recent fishing trip to the Florida Everglades, as we drifted among the gnarled groves of mangrove trees, I asked my dad what his biggest career regret was. His answer surprised me: “I wish I had started my own company.” He always felt like he had the ability to follow in the family tradition (my grandfather was a 4th-grade dropout who built his own business) but never did. He sacrificed that ambition so he could provide a good, consistent life for me and my mom. I love him for his willingness to be a great dad.
My God, I hope that desire is in me. When the time comes for me to choose, I pray I’m able to pick my family like my father did. I hope I do not walk the path of Logan.
But I am afraid I will. I am afraid because in both Kendall and my dad I find inspiration. Despite all the evidence I’ve seen in my own life, I still somehow delude myself that I can have it all.
There is even more to be afraid of. There is a fear that committing myself to the cause of greatness, to being all that I think I can be, will turn me into something I now dislike. Because greatness is so malleable, I worry that “being great” eventually destroys who I am.
In the world of content, the pursuit of greatness manifests as those folks who prostitute themselves to traffic, who helplessly careen from trend to trend, desperate in their desire for virality. In startups, the same can be said of those who shift from Web3 to AI to bootstrapping to whatever will be trendy in a month.
Greatness is not measurable. It is not quantifiable. I’m not even sure it is definable. But still we desire it. Be aware, it is a devourer resting within us. What we choose to feed it determines what kind of great we will be.

2023.06.02 20:36 incomprehensibilitys How to be a Mormon In 73 easy steps. .. Salt Lake Tribune

  1. Never use the word “Mormon” in describing anything Mormon. Doing so is a win for Satan.
  2. Drink no coffee, tea or alcohol.
  3. Eat meat sparingly. (Actually, scratch that. It’s in the Word of Wisdom, but no one pays attention to it anyway, so bring on the burgers. You’re going to need to keep your strength up for keeping all the other rules.)
  4. Eat a lot of vegetables and fruits in their season. And, yes, funeral potatoes totally count as a vegetable.
  5. Go to church every Sunday, even when you’re on vacation. God gives you extra credit for this.
  6. Accept any callings offered by the bishop. (But see also No. 40.)
  7. Attend the temple once a month at the very least. Always keep a valid temple recommend.
  8. Do your monthly visiting teaching/home teaching. Er, ministering.
  9. Send out a homemade holiday gift and card/letter to neighbors.
  10. Never use a curse word. If you need a library of faux swear options, watch “Napoleon Dynamite” multiple times and absorb its vocabulary.
  11. Do family history work (genealogy) for your ancestors.
  12. Show up for moving other people in and out of your ward. Lift with your legs! And keep plenty of ibuprofen on hand.
  13. Sign up to bring meals to the sick or otherwise needy. These must be home-cooked. No KFC allowed!
  14. Feed the missionaries — hefty portions. You don’t want emaciated elders or sisters around.
  15. Volunteer to clean the church/temple when the sign-up sheet goes around. Remember to wear clothes you can get dirty in. You’re keeping the church clean, not yourself.
  16. Attend ward activities like the Christmas party, the summer swim party, back-to-school parties, etc.
  17. Hold a weekly Family Home Evening with your children. No crying allowed, from either parents or children!
  18. Teach your children to do chores happily. (Good luck with this.)
  19. Be grateful, even for your trials. Trials are really blessings in disguise. Also, they make great fodder for tearful testimonies in the future.
  20. Keep a year’s supply of food in your basement, even if you never eat any of it. The family with the most wheat wins.
  21. Do regular disaster planning with your kids, from fire drills to flood plans. You can never be too prepared for the end of days.
  22. Know how to make important knots with rope. No one knows why this matters, but it does.
  23. Learn how to build a fire without a match.
  24. Know the stories of your pioneer ancestors, if you have them, to tell your children on Pioneer Day. (Don’t worry about the gruesome details — kids will love them!)
  25. Invite nonmembers to attend church meetings and activities. Repeatedly.
  26. Read the Sunday school and auxiliary lesson each week, so you can participate in lessons. But don’t monopolize the teacher, even if you’re the only one who prepared.
  27. Figure out how to use beans in fudge making and wheat in chili-making.
  28. Help with local fundraising activities for the youths, like allowing them to put a flag in your yard even if they break your sprinkler system.
  29. God expects you to be happy.
  30. Play “wholesome” games as a family. (Yes, Monopoly counts. The prophet Ezra Taft Benson taught that capitalism is holy, so it’s best to start ’em young.)
  31. Donate to Sub for Santa or other Christmas charities as a ward/stake.
  32. But don’t tell the children that Santa isn’t real.
  33. Sing in the ward choir, even if you don’t sing well, because you can make a “joyful sound.”
  34. Do NOT NOT NOT have sex before marriage — no making out, either. In fact, just try not to think about sex at all.
  35. Root for BYU against the University of Utah — “bleed blue.”
  36. Get your daughters to babysit for poor ward members for free.
  37. Go on weekly dates with your spouse.
  38. Don’t steal from the ward’s library or lost and found. (Return your crayons and chalk, dammit!)
  39. Repent whenever you accidentally use a swear word, as I just did in violation of Rule No. 38.
  40. Friends don’t let friends get called into the nursery.
  41. Toddlers get only Cheerios in sacrament meeting. (No Capn’ Crunch or you’ll make the other toddlers jealous.)
  42. Submit Primary children’s drawings as art for the ward bulletin, even if you can’t tell what it is.
  43. Eat “better than sex” chocolate cake.
  44. Drink sparkle punch.
  45. Participate in Eagle Scout projects no matter how stupid you think they are.
  46. Have a favorite church hymn — preferably the same as one of the prophet’s.
  47. Watch out for Gadianton robbers. Also, MLM schemes.
  48. Know how to cook a marshmallow properly to make s’mores. They’re practically a Mormon invention.
  49. Be able to make seven kinds of Jell-O salad, at least one with carrots.
  50. Save seats in a theateamusement park where it’s not allowed, but do it politely.
  51. Make sure you know how to make funeral potatoes. (Hint: with cornflakes!)
  52. Drink root beer or milk if you are ever forced to be in a bar.
  53. Turn regularly to sugar, in huge quantities, as your only vice.
  54. Keep all church buildings at refrigerator temperatures year-round because men are in full suits and ties.
  55. Drive to church no matter how close you live.
  56. Go on a mission the moment you hit the requisite birthday.
  57. Don’t go to the grocery store on the Sabbath. If you absolutely must, though, do it in another town so no one from your ward sees you.
Women 58. Do feminine crafts like knitting, crocheting and quilting.
  1. Learn how to bake bread, cook meals cheaply, and can foods. Bonus points if you grow the foods in your own garden.
  2. Wear makeup, because even an old barn looks good with a little paint on it.
  3. Do not nurse at church except in the mother’s lounge in the women’s bathroom, which will also be where children’s dirty diapers are changed and disposed of. But modesty!
  4. Attend monthly Relief Society meetings.
  5. Decorate your house with Relief Society kitsch.
  6. No porn shoulders.
  7. Don’t slam your purse or talk in a shrill tone.
  8. Be able to sew pioneer bonnets, dresses, aprons, etc., in bulk at a day’s notice.
  9. Don’t chew gum in church (according to my mother — it’s not ladylike).
  10. You can have up to one ear piercing per God’s instructions. Getting double-pierced ears is beyond the pale, so don’t push it.
Men 69. Sacrament must be administered and passed by young men in white shirts, only using their right hands. The patterns may vary from ward to ward, but are secret and only for men to know.
  1. Do not shed tears in any scenario ever, except during testimony meeting, when it is 100% acceptable for you to cry.
  2. Don’t abuse your children or your wife — except with dad jokes, which you may pile on freely.
  3. Do play church ball hard enough to get injured or injure someone else. Unless someone winds up in the hospital, the Spirit hasn’t spoken strongly enough.
  4. Facial hair was fine for Jesus but not for you. The clean-cut look is definitely the Mormon, er, Latter-day Saint look. Oh, and man buns are flat out.

2023.06.02 20:08 starsandmo0ns Anxious, racing thoughts.

Hi all.
I had a super toxic relationship with zero boundaries for years. During the pandemic, it ended, and I went to therapy. I did a lot of work and I am in a much healthier relationship now.
A big part of the getting over was the no contact part. Block, delete. I even deleted the socials temporarily to drop the habits. It worked!
Except… a year into my relationship he created a new Instagram. Saw the view on a story and blocked him. Then, he showed up at my house. My bf wasn’t there but long story short he confessed he had all of these feelings and was ready and done treating me as badly as he did. I told my bf he came around and he said I should have gotten a restraining order. In hindsight, I agree, but he was also not in the best frame of mind and he is impulsive. He also moved so I figured it would all be ok.
Well, last night I got a text from a friend informing me his best friend passed. The best friend is a childhood friend of mine, but me and my ex used to talk about him. The last time we spoke he said “I know he’s going to die within the next few years.” And he did. And I’m just thinking a lot about this ex and I’m worried that with him coming into town for the funeral I want to be prepared.
First, bf won’t be leaving my side until further notice, but another thing… should I tell bf about my concern of this guy showing up at my door? I feel like I’m being a bit crazy, but this ex is irrational and I’m home and he came here within the last year unprovoked and probably not the most mentally well.
Sorry if this seems weird, my brain is jumbled right now.

2023.06.02 20:01 Flimsy_Aioli412 My ex treated me terribly and now his life is amazing and I'm still alone and miserable.

wasted my 'best' years
tricked me into thinking we'd get married (by getting engaged, planning a wedding etc)
gave 0 warning that there were any issues
cheated when I went to my home country for my dad's funeral
dumped me via text a couple of days before I was due to fly back
eventually gave a list of reasons that it 'wouldn't work' via text, none of which made sense. all about not being ready for kids, needing to be single to find himself etc.
refused to discuss these reasons
wouldn't let me in to the apartment when I got back
I had to stay in a hotel for 2 weeks until he left the apartment
he didn't even see me again, last time I saw him he was helping me process my dad's passing and waiting with me at the airport
I still loved him so thought he was having a bit of a mental break (his family agreed) and I waited for him to come back
It turns out he cheated on me while I was away
He moved in with her when he moved out of our place
He got promoted at work
Started posting her all over social media when he was 'private' with me
She already had a kid (remember he wasn't ready for kids)
He proposed 6 months after dumping me
Had a baby with her 7 months after that

and me? I still live in the apartment we rented together, the landlady took pity and gave me reduced rent, I can't afford else anything even close to this.
It's been almost two years (therapy the whole time) and I haven't had a single good relationship.
Every guy I meet seems to sense that I have problems even though I think I fixed them
I'd never been cheated on until this guy, but two guys have cheated on me since
Others lie about what they want etc.
I never questioned my judgement before I dated him.
Now I constantly do it.

I thought I was over it, I know I'm over him, but I'm really not over the unfairness of it all. Why does he get to be happy after what he did to me?

I'm scared that I won't find anyone.

2023.06.02 19:16 Otherwise_Win_3995 My boyfriends best friend hit on me

I have a problem and I’m a little stuck here, just looking for some more opinions that are completely unbiased.
I have been with my boyfriend for a few months and I have been very happy. He’s moving into an apartment in the next couple days with his friend we’ll call Evan, and a girl he met at the gym.
The problem lies with Evan. I met Evan for the first time a few weeks ago and he was nice enough. It was myself, my boyfriend, Evan, and his newly broken up with ex-girlfriend Holly. I followed him on Instagram after we met up, as my boyfriend eventually wants me to move in with them. I can’t right now due to work restrictions but it is possible in the future. Since I’ll be visiting my boyfriend at the apartment often, I figured it would be wise to make at least a basic friendship with him. Soon after, he sent a message. I immediately felt something was off, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. I told my boyfriend, to which he said it was okay to touch base and be friendly since Evans been his best friend since 3rd grade (we are all 20).
I continued a brief, friendly conversation to which Evan turned into a flirty and even sexual interaction. He sexualized my race and flirted with me right off the bat, to which I did not reciprocate and called him weird. I immediately told my boyfriend, letting him read the entire conversation so he had all the context. My boyfriend was about a week and a half out from moving in, and had already signed the lease with Evan and the girl from the gym.
My boyfriend was very obviously hurt, crushed even. It was about 11:45/midnight when all this happened. I showed him everything, and he texted Evan. All my boyfriend said in the initial text was “Hey Evan” to which Evan responded immediately saying “I’m so sorry, can we call”. My boyfriend went upstairs to call him and I stayed downstairs playing video games while he did.
A little while later he came back and said Evan told him he had “20 shots” worth of alcohol and that he lost someone in his family. I smelled bullshit immediately. Who on earth has a loved one pass and says “boohoo me im gonna hit on my friends girlfriend”???? I’m a funeral director and know quite a bit about grief. He then claimed he “didn’t know” he was talking to me which is also a crock of shit, given that he was immediately guilty when my boyfriend only texted “Hey Evan”. My boyfriend fully believes this sob story.
We went to bed at about 2am and agreed to tell his parents in the morning to talk about pulling out of the lease. When we spoke to his parents, they said that his grief and drunkenness had placed him in a “different state of mind” and that he didn’t know what he was doing. In that moment I had never felt so invalid. My boyfriend, further influenced by his parents, told me the other day that he has a “gut instinct” that his friend Evan really didn’t know it was me that he was hitting on and that he would have done XYZ if he actually knew and believes that his friend made an honest mistake. Evan stated that he was “texting a lot of girls” so it wasn’t a targeted thing.
I sat there and just burst into tears. How can he sit there and absolutely invalidate everything i literally had real evidence for? How does he trust him more than me? I know he’s known him longer than me, but I showed every single morsel of evidence that I had. He had none to back up any of his claims.
A few days later, my boyfriend sent me an “apology” Evan wrote me, as I’ve blocked Evan on everything. The apology was not only 5000+ words long, it was ridden with excuses that didn’t check out, blaming me, and saying that I was insensitive about his family loss. The insensitive part got to me so I used my connections in funeral service to look for anyone who had arranged recently for his family to help them out as I felt bad. Come to find out; every funeral home in the area had not heard of him. He said he lived down the street from said relative who passed, so it wasn’t being done in a different state. I was so livid.
I keep being ignored and cut down and I don’t know what to do about it. I’m so angry that I’m constantly being invalidated, and I don’t want to make this about me because it’s my boyfriend that was really hurt, but it hurts me so much that he’s allowing this to slide. What do I do?

2023.06.02 18:35 CaveFlavored Is the pay really this bad, or is it me?

I recently started working in a funeral home as an allround worker. I have no specific education for it, and I’m getting trained on the job.
Currently I’m mainly doing admin and design, but am also getting trained on preparation and working with the families (no papers needed where I live).
I love it! I love working with the families, I love doing something meaningful, and I especially love making someone’s passing meaningful and loving rather than just painful.
The pay though is similar to unemployment benefits in my country.. That seems insane to me.
I came from an extremely highly paid job, and started doing this because I always wanted to but there’s no way I can do this fulltime at the pay it’s at.
Is the industry really this badly paid? Or is it because I am still training? I’m in Western Europe btw.

2023.06.02 17:31 a_sad_sack-ofshit I don’t know what to do anymore

I’m a mother, I didn’t think it would be this hard. My first child almost passed during birth , I had a traumatic c section I then lost a baby during a ectopic pregnancy. I thought I had healed from that and I thought facing my fears would help me by falling pregnant again and having a good birth, I had an amazing birth. But why didn’t it fix me ? I’m 1000 times worse, I’m so suicidal it’s not funny I hate who I am I hate my face my body , my brain my home. I am filled with rage and ptsd my child good fucked me my kids deserve better my partner hates me he doesn’t even love me I think he just feels bad for me and stays for The kids, all my friends start drama for me hate on me and talk shit about me. I can barely look after myself, I put everything in my children I love them so much if I didn’t have them I’d be dead. I’m to gutless to kill myself because then I’d be even more of a burden and someone would have to pay the funeral and my kids would end up depressed when they are older I don’t even know what I want out of this post I’m just crying , alone , scared , sad hormonal my children deserve better. I just need to be heard , I’m hoping maybe someone will understand

2023.06.02 17:28 Offthegoop-2 Dear mom

I will be placing you into a funeral home when you get older and I’m not gonna be the one paying for it so you’re gonna have to save up retirement funds in order to afford it. If not then hopefully one of your other daughters will help and take you in because you’re the reason I never had support or felt supported. Women are suppose to be supportive and nurturing and caring but you only fed me (and rarely at that) because you felt responsible. That being said, I’m not responsible for you or what happens to you and I will be blocking contact with you once I become stable and live on my own 😀😘😘

2023.06.02 16:37 Jv_waterboy 2 years.

2 years ago today I took a chance and a flight to a rehab over a thousand miles away from home. I had a blast, met some great people, and continued to follow the program they set out in front of me.
I've been to countless events... dinners, concerts, funerals, weddings, family gatherings, all without a sip. It can be hard sometimes, but it is well well worth it. I love this sub and you guys and gals.
2 years down, a lifetime to go.
