Thank you. That website is much better than the old one under Labour (one of the few things that is).

I don't think I'm too bothered about growing up anymore. It was mostly about ego, and a little bit about 'in case I have a baby I need to be an adult'. If I have to take on some major responsibility at some point I suppose I'll grow up then.

I remember when my frontal lobes matured though. I was sitting there, about 23, and I suddenly thought 'I feel mature'. I just felt different. Unfortunately my life was in the process of turning to shit, so I haven't really lived it while feeling mature at the same time.

Actually I've seen some adults say 'I've got three kids, a spouse and a full time job and I still don't feel grown up' so there you go.

I doubt I'll ever grow up. And not in a cool permanently amazed at the world like a child kind of way. I'm cynical, jaded yet barely functioning as a grown adult.
I'm stuck in a developmental cul-de-sac with not enough outside cues to break out of it and no enthusiasm, hope or discipline to change.

^^ i can totally relate to that right now. And I’m not sure why I’m like this - it’s sometimes hard to explain what it feels like, but what you say sounds familiar to me.

^ Sorry to hear that Percy! Listening to my favourite songs or watching some comedy sometimes helps to alleviate my loneliness.

I love singing. I sing a lot. So it's been getting me down that for about a month I haven't been able to sing due to throat/vocal cord issues. I found a video from a speech and language therapist about vocal cord massages. The massages are working, which I'm really pleased about, but I dare not sing because they're not quite fully healed. I've also stopped drinking anything caffeinated. Funny the things that can get us down.

^ same!

Do you like karaoke? I do hehe. Me and my sister used to do hallway karaoke. We'd put a specific song on and the other would immediately stop what they were doing come running into the hallway for hallway karaoke.

^Exactly this T, I've felt the same today. I'll be an outsider forever. It's depressing.

Thank you Dougella for the hug

job interview tomorrow, I am terrible at job interviews. This time I've been flicking through Tiktok advice on interviews. It's actually better than I'd expected for advice.

Really just want to feel numb.

Just fed up of feeling miserable and not having enough confidence to make changes to my life which could result in feelings of happiness....
