A word to u/4Nota2Robot0: You are a winner of BOTH photo and video contests, I think you should have some kind of special award for this. Didn't think of this when creating contest rules 🤦🏻

2023.06.03 12:50 MountBrew I want to get from Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrowl to a happy woof woof

I'm riling myself up over a bad faith argument from little more than a stranger and I don't want it to affect the rest of my day, because this afternoon is going to be a big deal and probably quite emotional.
The situation: I'm at my parents and they invited a friend over, who works at Ford motors. I personally take climate change very seriously. I have made changes to my lifestyle even though I still have room for improvement, and I welcome systemic change and strong climate regulation. If you don't agree with me, that's fine, let's not argue right now. We're here because I need help with my emotions.
Now, I can separate a person from their job. But this guest was complaining about how a particular type of vehicle suffers from a very high price tag due to its extreme climate impact, relative to other cars. I said that curbing the sales was the point of that legislation and that it's good that it works. He replied that he agrees with sustainability, but disagrees with "any type of fanaticism, no matter the subject". That made me so ruff-ing mad! When I asked him what he meant by that word in this context, he changed the topic.
I've left that conversation now and tried to do a breathing exercise because in little over two hours, I'll have a long conversation in person with my ex after our recent breakup. But during the breathing exercise, I couldn't stop the internal argument machine from switching into ever higher gears. I'm getting more and more mad about this guy's views when I should be calming myself down in anticipation of what will be a no doubt emotionally difficult, but hopefully quite positive, interaction with my ex who matters to me a lot.
Thank you for listening. I could use some help here. Sharing with you already helped me move from anger to primarily sadness, but I'm so so agitated and I'm scared that I'll start thinking about arguing with our guest again.
Ruff! Whince.
Edit: a word.

2023.06.03 12:49 Scotty217 [Aether][NA][STATIC][LFG] Looking for players who want to get into higher end content in a fresh group(Old & New)

Hey, we are looking for members to fill in the remaining roles in our static (2 dps and 1 healer). I am looking to start a static fresh and only want members who want a relaxed environment in which they can learn and progress. I made this group because there are many players, just like ourselves,who want to progress but find the raiding environment to be to daunting in PF and we are well aware of how many statics fall apart due to toxicity and elitism garbage.
Do not worry about having those type of experiences here,most of us are new to this and want to learn at a pace we are all comfortable with. Luckily we have recently recruited a well experienced player who has cleared several savages and ultimates and they said they would be happy to help in anyway they can. These are a great group of people who I have gotten to play with so you will be in great company. 😁
•Team Comp: WAR, DRK, NIN, RPR, SCH •Raid Days: Mon&Tue (we can also do every other Wednesday, it can be used as an additional raid day or a substitution for another) •Raid Time: 11:00pm-1:00am [EST] •Contact: Discord SCOTTY#3566 or message me on Reddit
P.S: When we have a full group, we look into getting into the newest extreme first. After that we will decide what savage tier we will dive into. I also have something planned for UCOB down the line but I want to make sure we are all comfortable with that first.

2023.06.03 12:49 Goldie5421 AITA for pressing charges over hair cut?

I f21 have a cousin who has just turned 18. She had got into a very good college which she is due to start in September. Due to pressures, she developed mental health issues and on a particularly bad day she shaved off all her hair. This was 9 months ago, so she has short hair now.
I have long blonde hair down to my waist. I was talking with her about her new hair. I said it looked nice and that it must be easier to manage than my hair. She said it’s easy but she wants her old hair back. I said I hope that it grows fast for her. Later on her mum pulled me aside and said not to mention hair because it’s sensitive for her right now. I agreed but later on I forgot and was talking about what hairstyle I should do for a party I will be attending. She snapped and said it’s just hair. I said yes but hair can make or break an outfit and it was important to me. I realised this was insensitive as I said it but she left as soon as I said it. My family got mad at me.
Later on, she grabbed some of my hair at the top of my head and cut a load of it. A massive chunk of my hair was cut and it looked awful and uneven. And she said after doing it that she hopes it teaches me hair grows back and to be less shallow.
The hairdresser said there is not much she can do for me but she showed me some things to help it blend until it grows to a matching length which will be around 3 years unless it cut it short.
I decided to press charges for assault. My family is horrified as this will worsen everything she is going through and probably jeopardise her place at college and limit her future jobs.
Over something that will affect me for “only a few years if that”. Her mum is pleading with me saying she has been really unwell and me talking about my beautiful hair when most of hers was gone sent her back into that place. She said she didn’t mean to. My cousin did apologise and said she flew into rage and lost control and regretted it straight away, and said she would bring it up with her therapist. I said it’s not good enough. My hair is ruined and as I said my hair is very important to me. I don’t care if it ruins her life.
Half my family is on my side and half of them think I’m being cruel ruining her life further over hair. They said I’m justified in being upset but ruining her life won’t make my hair grow back quicker it’ll just send her further over the edge. I’m not sure if I should continue with the charges. AITA?

2023.06.03 12:48 Alliejam1 ACIM WORKBOOK LESSON 154

LESSON 154. I am among the ministers of God.
Let us today be neither arrogant nor falsely humble. We have gone beyond such foolishness. We cannot judge ourselves, nor need we do so. These are but attempts to hold decision off, and to delay commitment to our function. It is not our part to judge our worth, nor can we know what role is best for us; what we can do within a larger plan we cannot see in its entirety. Our part is cast in Heaven, not in hell. And what we think is weakness can be strength; what we believe to be our strength is often arrogance. Whatever your appointed role may be, it was selected by the Voice for God, Whose function is to speak for you as well. Seeing your strengths exactly as they are, and equally aware of where they can be best applied, for what, to whom and when, He chooses and accepts your part for you. He does not work without your own consent. But He is not deceived in what you are, and listens only to His Voice in you.
It is through His ability to hear one Voice which is His Own that you become aware at last there is one Voice in you. And that one Voice appoints your function, and relays it to you, giving you the strength to understand it, do what it entails, and to succeed in everything you do that is related to it. God has joined His Son in this, and thus His Son becomes His messenger of unity with Him.
It is this joining, through the Voice for God, of Father and of Son, that sets apart salvation from the world. It is this Voice which speaks of laws the world does not obey; which promises salvation from all sin, with guilt abolished in the mind that God created sinless. Now this mind becomes aware again of Who created it, and of His lasting union with itself. So is its Self the one reality in which its will and that of God are joined.
A messenger is not the one who writes the message he delivers. Nor does he question the right of him who does, nor ask why he has chosen those who will receive the message that he brings. It is enough that he accept it, give it to the ones for whom it is intended, and fulfill his role in its delivery. If he determines what the messages should be, or what their purpose is, or where they should be carried, he is failing to perform his proper part as bringer of the Word.
There is one major difference in the role of Heaven’s messengers, which sets them off from those the world appoints. The messages that they deliver are intended first for them. And it is only as they can accept them for themselves that they become able to bring them further, and to give them everywhere that they were meant to be. Like earthly messengers, they did not write the messages they bear, but they become their first receivers in the truest sense, receiving to prepare themselves to give.
An earthly messenger fulfills his role by giving all his messages away. The messengers of God perform their part by their acceptance of His messages as for themselves, and show they understand the messages by giving them away. They choose no roles that are not given them by His authority. And so they gain by every message that they give away.
Would you receive the messages of God? For thus do you become His messenger. You are appointed now. And yet you wait to give the messages you have received. And so you do not know that they are yours, and do not recognize them. No one can receive and understand he has received until he gives. For in the giving is his own acceptance of what he received.
You who are now the messenger of God, receive His messages. For that is part of your appointed role. God has not failed to offer what you need, nor has it been left unaccepted. Yet another part of your appointed task is yet to be accomplished. He Who has received for you the messages of God would have them be received by you as well. For thus do you identify with Him and claim your own.
It is this joining that we undertake to recognize today. We will not seek to keep our minds apart from Him Who speaks for us, for it is but our voice we hear as we attend Him. He alone can speak to us and for us, joining in one Voice the getting and the giving of God’s Word; the giving and receiving of His Will.
We practice giving Him what He would have, that we may recognize His gifts to us. He needs our voice that He may speak through us. He needs our hands to hold His messages, and carry them to those whom He appoints. He needs our feet to bring us where He wills, that those who wait in misery may be at last delivered. And He needs our will united with His Own, that we may be the true receivers of the gifts He gives.
Let us but learn this lesson for today: We will not recognize what we receive until we give it. You have heard this said a hundred ways, a hundred times, and yet belief is lacking still. But this is sure; until belief is given it, you will receive a thousand miracles and then receive a thousand more, but will not know that God Himself has left no gift beyond what you already have; nor has denied the tiniest of blessings to His Son. What can this mean to you, until you have identified with Him and with His Own?
Our lesson for today is stated thus:
I am among the ministers of God, and I am grateful that I have the means by which to recognize that I am free.
The world recedes as we light up our minds, and realize these holy words are true. They are the message sent to us today from our Creator. Now we demonstrate how they have changed our minds about ourselves, and what our function is. For as we prove that we accept no will we do not share, our many gifts from our Creator will spring to our sight and leap into our hands, and we will recognize what we received.

2023.06.03 12:46 roxyandemma69 Low point to finally really try to get sober

Realizing I cannot live the way I am anymore. Drink- blackout- shame- sober for a few days. Repeat. My drinking has caused problems for about 3 years now, but have crossed all my boundaries the past couple of months. I take my work very seriously, but got black out drunk on a work trip and got into it with a coworker. My relationship recently ended and I know my drinking ruined intimacy and trust in the relationship. My ex was constantly having to coax my blackout rage and clean up my mess. In the past week, my mom and I took a very nice beach vacation which I ruined at the end. Long story short, she called the cops on me because I was going to go out with locals that I just met and she did not want me to go because I was blackout drunk. It became very ugly. We are not on speaking terms. I don’t know where to start to change. AA has very mixed reviews. I’m afraid no one will take me seriously as a (23 F) and drinking is so normalized in early twenties. How do I get over the guilt and shame of relationships lost and terrible things i have done. Any advice appreciated

So my girlfriend of 2 years has bpd did and she's autistic. We haven't fought since January but now we got into a big fight. She had honestly been treating me like crap and acting like she's been talking to someone else behind my back. The last time she acted like this I found out she was talking to one of her exes that tried breaking us up multiple times. When I talked to her about how she's been treating me she gets defensive and says something is my fault and that makes me worry some to. So idk what to do we we're doing so great a communication and now she's shutting me out again. I don't wanna go back to the way we used to be.

2023.06.03 12:43 Entity904 World Building Post: The Enili Princedom

Enili is one of the largest southern princedoms, the strength of which is heavily reliant upon the support of the Kawriq Empire. It is ruled by a prince, currently Izevel, who is the head of the princedom senate, overseer of the court of judges, and possesses unquestionable executive power within the nation.
The soil there is of a bright orange to dark brown coloration. Alhough it does not hold many natural resources, it is a treasure in itself, fertile and capable of sustaining great forests and farmlands. Woodwork, harvested crops, livestock meats and furs, woven fabric, pottery and glass, as well as experienced professionals make up most of the country's exports. Metals, spices, alcohols, scrolls of papyrus and many other materials need to be purchased from merchants from the north, east, and west. The people of Enili commonly use clay tablets for writing and notation, but since the nation fell under the influence of the Kawriq Empire papyrus scrolls began to significantly gain on popularity.
The princedom does not possess a large army, and its city lacks in strategic defenses. However, it does maintain a fleet of over fifty state-owned ships to deal with pirates and perform escorts of important individuals and resources, while the city militia is numerous, well-trained, and well-equipped.
The City of Enili, located on the most eastern flank of the Kawriq civilization and easily accessible from land and sea by travelers and merchants from far away, has become a safe stop for those travelers. It allows them to rest in their journey, make repairs to their vessels and equipment, and resupply at a relatively cheap price. Many buildings at the center of the city were built out of white imported marble and sandstone, while on the outskirts wood and orange clay bricks are the most dominant materials.
The city has been expanding both in population and size at an unprecedented pace for the last few years, reaching no less than one hundred thousand citizens, about sixty thousand non-citizens (mostly immigrants from Kawriq, and people from the dry and hot north) and thirty thousand peasants with limited rights. To gain a citizenship and the benefits it grants one has to serve at least twenty four years in the city militia, navy or military (and half as much to become a half-citizen) or be born to a pair of citizens, or one citizen and one half-citizen. Half-citizens are effectively citizens who were born to pairs of a citizen and a non-citizen, however child of a pair of two half-citizens will always be a non-citizen. They can improve their status and become a full citizen by paying a half-citizen tax for twelve years and completing a written test of citizenship.
The city posses a primitive, mostly covered sewage system, making it suprisingly clean and pleasant-smelling for its size.
The faith of the feathered twins has recently become the main religion, and while the cults of most of the lesser gods have died out or been nearly completely abandoned, however their statues and symbols are still understood to attract good spirits. They are still actively prayed to, but more as a group. Those relics of the past can often be seen in public meeting areas and households, bringing luck to the citizens. Similarly, the fossils and bones of long-dead animals have always been understood to protect from tge evil spirits, the fuller and more accurately articulated the skeleton, the better. In accordance with the dominant Enili philosophy known as the "palace of the higher needs," no temples or ancient statues were purposefully demolished. Instead, they were repurposed to serve the feathered twins. The religious conversion was mostly swift and bloodless, thanks to countless public speeches by philosophers, government officials, and public representatives, as well as successful negotiations between interested parties.
There are many skilled craftsmen living within Enili, purchasing raw resources from merchants and selling finished products with profit. Many private, priesthood-owned and state-owned schools exist there, the most well known of which is the Enili School of Craftsmanship and Philosophy, located in a repurposed ancient temple on the western bank of the river Izu. According to many the Enili School represents the highest standard of education in all southern princedoms. A large population of alchemists lives in the eastern part of the city, producing and selling a great number of elixirs of questionable effectiveness, though there are many things they produce that have been proven to function as intended, coloured glass being one of them. The woodwork sector is also strong within the city, producing great art, furniture, and sturdy ships of the Enili pattern. Many poets, artists, sculptors, architects, engineers, and philosophers also live within the city, and their works are the pride of Enili people.
The coinage there is somewhat unusual. The "unicorns" are the very recently introduced coins of the highest value. They are round, made of platinum and iron, and bear the image of the creature on one side and the stylized profile carving of Izevel on the other. They are worth one thousand of the golden coins each. The "envoys" are the second most valuable coin, made of gold, square, and with a hole at the center. They bear the image of two envoy birds on one side and the ruler of the Kawriq Empire on the other. There is also another, older version of this coin still in use called "phoenixes," which has the image of a phoenix on one side and the likeness of either Izevel, Izevel's father, or another old ruler on the other. Each golden coin is worth twelve silver coins. The triangular silver "altars," each with a hole in the middle, bear the images of a fish, a crowhorse, and wheat, respectively in each of the corners, and the panorama of Enili on the other side. Each silver coin is worth twelve of the round coloured glass coins, known as "tokens", which can bear a great variety of state-mandated symbols, and are mostly orange in coloration.
The Morning Mountains Colony is a territory aquired relatively recently by the Princedom of Enili by a threat of force and exchange of many coins. It's a small but growing city located near the source of river Izu, counting around ten thousand non-citizens in population. It is ruled by a council made up of its inhabitants and a governor from the City of Enili. The Colony is relatively prosperous and content with it's current political situation. Trade has significantly increased since it joined the princedom, living conditions have improved and a few schools and roads have been built. It's better fortified than the City of Enili, with a steep cliff protecting it from one side and a palisade from the other. The Colony possesses a military force counting around one hundred armored envoy riders, three hundred crowhorse-riding archers, three hundred infantry and ten ships. The purpose of this very expansive force (maintained mostly from the taxes of the citizens of the City of Enili) is to protect the trade routes, eliminate bandits, maintain peace and protect the north of the Princedom of Enili.

2023.06.03 12:43 ParticularPrize2709 I relapsed from sh and my boyfriend chose to “go out with the boys”

Right now, all I want is an opinion, advice, or just someone to read this and have their say!! I (18f) had been clean from sh for over five months. Im in a relationship with my boyfriend (26m) who has also sh in the past. After a confronting couple of weeks and I horrid day at work, I relapsed the other night and I’m in a new relationship with a man that I am falling for HARD and as far as I’m aware, he is too. We have had a relatively fast moving relationship and both have several kinds of trauma that affect us in different ways. (My trauma is still very relevant in my life) We have similar interests, similar goals in life and a similar sense of humour. We have fantastic chemistry and an amazing sex life; he respects me, is patient with me and has done many things to prove to me at this point in our relationship that he is not just fucking around and is very serious about me. He ticks so many more boxes but you get the point…
I had a couple of hours worth of a panic attack this night and after trying to go out and nobody reciprocating my attention, I turned my focus onto the fact that my boyfriend had not contacted me for quite some hours before and after he knew I had finished work and wanted to see him that night. I ended up contacting him after noticing his snap score go up while I was left on opened and told him I had messed up (because I did royally, on myself) and after a long conversation over the phone right after I relapsed, he told me he was coming over tonight to see me, cook for me, cuddle me, and make sure I was okay… He has been acting off and not messaging me the same all day, and after letting him know that I had finished work today and was about to pick him up, he let me know that he was going out drinking with the boys at his football club instead. I felt/feel shattered! How could he be okay doing this, how am I not a priority, how could he think this would help me?! I simply couldn’t believe this almost imperfectly perfect man would pull what I felt/feel to be one of the scummiest things a man could do, specially since I had previously called of a very personally important event to make sure he was okay after having a hard night and struggling emotionally to let me in. Anyway, I made him call me, almost ready to call it off, knowing I deserve better and to be a priority in my partners life; and to kind of sum things up, I explained how much of a choice I felt and how I deserve to be a priority and that I felt even more alone then when I initially relapsed. In response he told me this is how it was going to be if I do this to myself, that he feels heartbroken that I’ve done this to myself again, that it hurt him, made him feel like he wasn’t making me happy, like he wasn’t enough, and that he won’t reinforce me doing it again by giving me the best attention and showering me with affection when I do it. After an emotional conversation where we communicated clearly and calmly, I told him back and forth how devastated and hurt I was and that he was showing me that he didn’t care as much as he claimed, and his actions didn’t match up with his words. He explained to me he was sorry I felt this way and ended up saying how much I mean to him and that he wants to spend the rest of his life with me and that he wants to prove that I am the biggest priority in his life, that he has never felt like this for someone and just wants to be able to make friends being in a new town and wants me to have a life as well and reach out to friends. I explained how his actions showed none of that but we got to some sort of conclusion. We came to some sort of peace point in the conversation where he said he was planning on coming over tomorrow night, when I finished work early and didn’t work the next day, and we ended up saying our goodbyes; (me still sulking) I was/am still hurt after not contacting me again all night, but he left the conversation saying the words “I love you” before hanging up the call. he’s never said that before and I was left with my jaw on the floor and didn’t have time to reply. It felt like time stood still and now I’m so confused. We’ve had conversations where he explained how he felt about me, like he is in love but he is almost so scared to say that word because he’s been bruised by it so much in the past and doesn’t want to scare me away by saying it. (I assured him it wouldn’t since I desperately want to say it too) and he just said it. This is a big deal…
I hate texting, he isn’t good at texting and we both have ADHD. Communication when we aren’t together is always stressful for me specially since I have an anxious attachment style and am a chronic over thinker, and he seems to be a bit more avoidant, but when we are together or have a clear understanding in a space or on a situation, it’s golden and he feels like home.
Am I wasting time with a man who doesn’t care about me as much as I care about him? Is this a gaslighting and an emotionally abusive situation? Is he just stringing me along for sex and attention when he gets bored and lonely? Is he just being a bit of a man who needed time to process everything and I should cut him some slack? Or is this the kind of tough love that I need hear, to be able to pull my head out from my ass??
Please, I have no one to go too. If you’ve made it this far, give me something to work with, anything is appreciated at this point…

2023.06.03 12:43 TheChumscrubber123 6.02.23 - TF = big hard, big sad sometime. big hard+sad = big(gest) love, big(gest) wow rewards

This is even harder than I expected. TF journey really is something else.... I still stand by the strong assertion that it is still the most fantastic blessing one could hope for. It's definitely very challenging, but the path to Heaven/enlightenment (for everyone) is through the flames. You can't go up without first going down (no rebirth without the death). Every soul will have to do this eventually. And TFs just massively, massively accelerate that process. Meaning, it's more difficult and hurts more initially, but you make it through the flames of suffering far quicker and reach much higher states of consciousness and vibration much sooner.
My own journey is evidence of that. I was broken many times by you and endured unbearable heartbreak and blah blah. I also had massive flare-ups of my shadow in the beginning. But because of that, instead of taking decades to progress a few steps, I shot up to this extremely high and rare state of consciousness/awakening at break-neck, unheard of speeds. Just 4 years into this journey and I can already say all the suffering and difficulties were totally worth it to have reached the state I'm at now. And because of that, I'm extremely grateful for every moment of it.
tldr; TF = Hard mode. Hard mode = 100x exp

I wasn't allowed to join your stream today. And it hurt. I first hesitated because of how you reacted to me in stream yesterday. It seemed like you wanted space from me, so I wanted to give you that. But I wanted HS to make the decision. And then a bunch of things started arising to heal. Fear of rejection. Rejection from literally anyone else in the world is so easy to brush off, so I wouldn't really fear anyone else. But with you, there's that otherwordly soul connection that brings the deepest and strangest connection I've ever felt with anyone. Rejection from you isn't something I can just brush off. I know it will hurt. Which is fine, because it's always just another opportunity to heal a samskara. But it's never fun and stings everytime I even get a hint of it from you. It makes me feel like such a baby, but again, this only happens with you. And the great news is each time this happens, I remove another layer of that negative emotion permanently from my system--though there will likely be many more layers to go lol.
Once much of that fear was transmuted, and I thought I might be ready to connect, the intense soul longing for you arose. And then frustration for this complicated situation that we're in and the inability to just connect with you normally and not just in this weird, superficial way through a public gaming streaming platform. And then hopelessness of feeling like this is pointless and I'm not gonna be able to form a deep/meaningful connection with you given the extreme limitations of our communication, and that this is probably just going to end up the same way, with me falling back into chasing you and you continuing to cling to Ethan, and then HS pulling the plug and forcing me to walk away for good.
But then I snapped out of it. While describing this sounds like I was in some debby downward emo spiral, these kinds of thoughts don't last very long before I recognize that I'm caught in ego consciousness and "wake up" again. Then the thoughts fall away, I go into higher consciousness and begin transmuting. The thoughts aren't ever able to drag me down to really low/negative states. It's just in this case, so many different things kept arising one after the other. While unpleasant, this was still pretty manageable. But then that intense soul longing and sorrow came up, and that was a tough one.
Normally when negative emotions arise, I am able to transmute them fairly quickly. But the soul longing/sorrow that arose today was a huge one. My soul was in such desperate, intense longing for your soul. Wave after wave after wave kept arising, and I had to go lie in my bed and go into deep meditation for hours transmuting. It's the first time since HS awakening that something like this has happened and that I haven't been able to fairly quickly heal samskaras.
The thought did arise, "God, this sucks. I don't wanna do this anymore. I just wanna go back (run away) to my peaceful non-TF journey where things are so much easier and simpler...." That thought almost immediately was recognized as bullshit. Because that would imply abandonding my beloved to her Hellish fate, which I would never do so long as there's a chance of helping. And even on a selfish note, this is the crap that needs to come up to be healed because this is the crap that's keeping me from my bliss and ascension. So I'm very blessed to have this opportunity through our connection.

I also reminded myself that I shouldn't get attached to you or the idea of Union. This again is becoming more difficult as the soul love grows. But I need to stay open so I don't obstruct HS from acting through this person for our highest good. So I won't say, "I miss you, I'm sorry I couldn't spend time with you during your stream today, and I wish we could connect more." But I will say that I love you always.

tldr; we probably both needed space today. And if I wasn't such a zomgAwak3ndB_ing, I might say something like, "I miss you like the sun misses the flowers in the depths of winter; instead of beauty to direct its light to, the heart hardens like the frozen world which your absence has banished me to."

2023.06.03 12:42 AuthorDDLewis Prayer based on Revelation 7:1-8

Prayer based on Revelation 7:1-8
An angel descends with a seal to mark the foreheads of the servants of God before God pours out His judgments on the earth.
Father, we praise You for Your faithfulness. You will keep Your promise to deliver all who love You and call upon Your name. (Romans 10:13) They lack nothing and can rest in Your deliverance. (1 Corinthians 1:7-9)
From John’s view in heaven, he sees four Angels holding back the destructive winds of the earth. He then sees a fifth angle rising from the east who commands the other angels of God not to harm the land, or sea, or trees until we seal all the chosen servants of Jesus with a mark on their foreheads. John hears the number of the sealed, which will figuratively represent all Jews, 12,000 from each tribe. Paul tells us that Jesus will save all of Israel when He comes and banishes ungodliness from Jacob. (Romans 11:26-27) Paul goes on to say that the calling of God is irrevocable. (Romans 11:29) What about the Gentiles, who God chose to graft into the vine? (Romans 11:17) Are they also heirs to the promise given to the descendants of Jacob and therefore included in this group? Is the calling of the Gentiles also irrevocable?
Father, give us the wisdom to understand the vastness of Your mercy and grace as we study Your Word. Amen.
Let us take time to study and meditate on Romans 11:11-36
Questions for reflection and meditation: 1. Who do the angels seal before the great tribulation begins? 2. How can you be assured that you will persevere through your trials? 3. How has God called you and delivered you from your sins and His wrath? 4. What makes it possible for you to be confident in His future grace?

2023.06.03 12:42 lazy_hype Some international shawols upset that the upcoming album have more than 2 versions ( bit of a rant but important discussion)

I wish I was lying but a lot of international shawols since yesterday have been fighting over the album versions and it has gotten so ridiculous
For context SHINee album has 4 main versions 1- the package version ( probably will be limited version based on other sm artists comebacks it will be like how kibum gasoline vhs tape was limited)
2- photobook version and it comes in 3 different styles
3- Digipack version which will be individual covers ( just like how DCM had 4 jewel cases one per member)
4- SMIni version ( for groups it also miniature versions of digipacks so it’s gonna be per member same thing happen with all sm groups since last year )
5- might get announced later but for months now and sm releases later a QR version ( it’s a tiny box that have QR code plus couple of photocard sized pictures & a photocard; Key and Onew recently got those as well )
So some shawols saw this and got mad like super angry to the point of some threatening boycotting the comeback
This isn’t to fight those people and in no way I’m will post ss of their tweets; this post is about how ridiculous everything is
1- like dcm album had similar version minus the smini version and that type of version became a thing just last year and all other sm groups and artists comebacks had them including Kibum and Jinki albums this year
2- DCM had individual per member jewel case versions and sm stopped doing jewel cases but replaced them with Digipacks so it’s the same thing it isn’t new at all
3- The photobook version had 3 different ones isn’t new either like even 1of1 had 3 versions, the covers were the same but the spine was different ( one was red, one was yellow and one was green), number of photobook version depends on number of photoshoots related to the comeback, dcm had two etc….
4- SHINee having different versions isn’t new and so is their solos for a while, so to see a lot saying shinee having more than two versions means it’s damage control by sm to cover what’s happening with exo-cbx is beyond ridiculous
5- Ever since the issue of sm and exo-cbx happened and this weird narrative about how the shinee comeback itself is a damage control and it is making me so upset because how a comeback that has been planned for a long time is a damage control! I don’t understand why some fans even thinking of this it’s so so ridiculous. The fact that some think that sm woke up up one day and made up multiple versions of the album the same day as news about the company vs exo-cbx as a way of damage control is just insane like do people not realize that the albums already been printed and made only waiting for the release date now. companies print certain number of albums and of preordered increases than that set number, the company print more but there are already albums who got printed for a while.
This comeback is for shinee 15th anniversary and reducing the comeback and shinee activities as damage control for other groups is insulting to say the least
6- No one is forced to buy anything and no one is forced to buy all versions if they plan to buy anything; shinee members aren’t holding a gun to fans to force them to buy all versions. I personally only buy one album or three at most if I can afford it regardless of the album and sometimes I don’t buy anything at all when the money I have is for more important things which is okay it is never a big deal and shouldn’t be made a big deal like how some are turning the whole thing
7- I also saw some fans saying more than two versions is a waste and hurting the environment and how is SHINee group cb is the only one who doing this ?! Like all albums are the same; if someone has a problem then go talk to the music industry and tell them to not manufacture albums anymore. I’m sorry but I’m just tired of how it’s only SHINee albums that are causing the problem now when other groups have been 10x versions than SHINee. Some of the same people who were mad about shinee having multiple versions were going around upset at taemin advice album having only one version and praising all of Kibum albums versions so why things now are different like make it make sense 😭
8- There were few fans who threatening to boycott the comeback entirely and saying that shinee shouldn’t have more than two album versions and I just don’t get the logic so if shinee gets one album version maybe even that version be a jewel case like how some of their previous older comebacks, would that be better for these people??! I just don’t get it. To be frank kpop companies and even some western artists have been doing multiple album versions to increase sales it isn’t rocket science and it isn’t something new at all & again the main album versions for the cb are just 4 and one of them is most likely to be limited edition so I’m really confused by the outrage and the reaction of some fans
Sorry for this negative post but the situation in the fandom has been suffocating since yesterday and I don’t understand I really thought all of the fandom would be happy about the comeback finally being announced and that we finally have the date of the comeback; I didn’t expect all the discourse and fighting

2023.06.03 12:42 RussoSedena Narcissist(?) is a medical professional and gave me a chronic malfunction. Nobody believes me.

This is kind of hard for me to write down, because I have gotten so used to people not believing me, like it wouldn´t be able to happen. But this is how I experienced it (withholding too precise information):
Person A is a practicioner in a medical field. We were introduced to each other an a casual context, and there were...well, a few sparks flying? I felt she was a little obsessive maybe, but very charming too. I was planning on having some treatment done in A´s field and we agreed she would have a look at it. I reveived a treatment plan, looked at some of her former work and decided to give it a go.
Over the course of some months, the plan was carried out. There was a bit of a flirty vibe between us, but at the same time it seemed very hard to get to see her outside of her clinic. My take is that the job is her identity, she puts on a huge charm show for everyone, but when you see her somewhere else randomly, she actually seems very timid. So I didn´t really feel like this would be going anywhere, but was on good terms with that. Just carried on with the last few appointments.
And that´s when it happened. She would be fishing for appraisal sometimes, mixing it with flirting, and at this one session she did so again. I think I reacted a bit indifferent, though definitely not rude or something. I could see her face go bland, and she did two small things during the ongoing procedure that instantly made me feel like something was off.
The following days, I got more and more uncomfortable with it. By a few weeks, I knew I was up for a low-level chronic issue if not corrected. I called to get it fixed and got brushed off - "it takes some getting used to". After some more weeks I managed to get an appointment, during which she used a very basic, incomplete testing procedure to "prove" all was fine and sent me away. I pushed to get an appointment again, this time she commented on the respective issue basically acknowledging it wasn´t right, but blaming one of the clinic employees who was present in the room(!) and then within the same minute she went on to a working step that made it much harder to reverse the issue(!!). After coming home from that appointment, I knew this was not a normal mistake.
I went to other pracitioners to get it checked, they could see what was wrong but I could tell they wouldn´t touch the thing because of liability. This is also when I understood that this was low level enough for everyone to view it as some form of minor mishap, but big enough for me to develop real discomfort, and problematic enough so that no practitioner wanted to get involved with it. The perfect crime?
So I knew I would have to keep insisting that she correct it. I was now running on almost a year of chronic, 24/7 irritation and discomfort. I pulled a little trick asking for all the documentation of my case, which basically would be a before-after evidence. This is assumption on my part, but I think she wants to control said evidence, so instead of handing it over for external use she suddenly offered to take care of it. The ongoing correction process includes stretching the time (long waits for appointments), lies ("this is supposed to be like this anatomically, always"), somehow I don´t get to speak to other professionals in the clinic as would otherwise be normal, working on the opposite side of where I described the issue (me insisting until working the correct place), not answering to my emails (have to insist on phone or personally to get next appointment), tricking me into cheap solutions that would basically mean I accept the issue for life and use a relief item ("what we talked about last time, we couldn´t get it to fit, so I have something else for you here..."). It´s still progressing, but for every step that actually turns out ok I have to fight for appointments, get informed, monitor what she is doing, and insist on corrections all the time.
I am at 18 months of approx. 60% quality of life now, expect to spend another half year on getting to a baseline functional level, and paid the woman 3 monthly salaries for the original treatment. I know people here can´t know the other side of the story, but I don´t really think I was promising her anything, and also I felt that she was the one blocking all interaction outside of that clinic. The hard part is that I can´t speak about what I am experiencing because nobody will believe that a professional would do this, let alone this very popular charm bomb.
Well. Thanks for reading. I guess I was just hoping that somebody, even a stranger on the internet, would just acknowledge that it is *possible*.

2023.06.03 12:35 lord_corwyn AITA for not attending my Nephew's wedding?

My nephew, who’s in his early 30’s, is getting married, we’re all very happy for him. I’m the Uncle, youngest of 3, his mother, the oldest sister, we’ll call her Sister-A, and the middle sister, Sister-B. That sets the stage of major characters.
Sister-B has just recently developed a boyfriend, after a number of years alone. By the time of the wedding, they’ll have been dating for 5 months. Our Nephew has sent out the invitations, and stated that there’s a 6 month rule for +1’s, and since his Aunt hasn’t been going with her new boyfriend for 6 months, he was not allowed to attend. In my view, a wedding, and the reception, are a celebration, to be shared among friends and family, even potentially new members of the family. This has upset the majority of our family, myself, Sister-B, our recently widowed mother and only surviving grandparent, cousins and other family friends. The only ones not upset by this are my Nephew, his Bride to be, and his parents (Sister-A and her husband).
For me, I am deeply disappointed and ashamed of my Nephew. You don’t exclude someone, especially the boyfriend of your only Aunt, over the matter of a month. You might do that to a friend or an acquaintance, not a family member. My Mother, Sister-B, and myself have expressed our disappointment, and are determined not to attend the reception, for me, I’m not attending either ceremony or reception, due to the fact that I live across the country and have to fly in. My mother and Sister-B were only planning to go to the wedding ceremony, but not the reception, due to this unchangeable 6 month rule. My Mother has informed my Nephew, her grandson, how deeply disappointed she is, and of her plans to only go to the ceremony.
We’ve now been informed that my nephew is deeply hurt by our decisions and that if someone chooses not to go to the reception, they are not invited to the ceremony. I ask you, What about those people, friends, etc, that have other plans, and were planning all along to go to go to the ceremony, but due to other plans, won’t be able to attend the reception? This, in my opinion, is a slap in the face, and a further disappointment. The rest of the family, cousins, uncle, grandmother, and extended family, are in solidarity with the one aunt, and her new boyfriend. The Nephew’s mother and father are supporting their son’s decision, and not even trying to get him to reconsider.
I ask you, AITA for choosing to support my sister and her new boyfriend, rather than my Nephew and his unchangeable and unfeeling attendance rules?

2023.06.03 12:35 brad5409 Emotional regulation issues

How do you guys deal with this, the ups the downs, the instant rage and then the instant solemn.
So basically I’ve always struggled with this, it has caused so many issues in my life, especially at work and my home life. And having a wife that has ADHD also just seems to make it worse.
For example, the freezer was just loaded with stuff. She loves to just shove stuff in. I’m no better really. So then the door had been left ajar because of something in the way. I go to get out some beautiful Italian sausage I was going to cook up and felt they were a bit defrosted. Then realised everything else was the same. And I fucking lost my shit! Start throwing shit into the sink, on the bench, the floor.
She comes out and instantly starts crying, I don’t yell at her. I never have. Just yell in general, WTF! This shits ruined. Stuff like that. I see her crying because she feels it her fault. I go completely the other way, rage turns to sadness. I start crying and then just can’t deal with the issue and have to walk away just feeling like a right cunt because I’ve upset her once again.
Normal people don’t do this shit. I can’t keep doing this. This is just one example, it happened like 10 minutes ago. And now I’m just sitting on the couch, staring at an open freezer with half frozen food all over the kitchen and trying to will myself to go and fix my tantrum.
How do you guys deal with this?? I need help!!

2023.06.03 12:35 Emotional-Oven9767 Recently had a breakup, and wanted to share my story, maybe venting if that what it is called

Soo I met a girl online on a gaming platform, we just clicked, we were flirting and she told me she liked me and I liked her too she was ready for a long distance relationship too but I was not comfortable with a long distance relationship due to my past experiences, and my work allowed me to switch location soo I went moved to her city and we started dating, we used to live together on weekends , she had an apartment reneted and I stayed in a pg, she was more comfortable at her place so I used to travel to her place every Friday night till Monday morning to be with her, we had a happy year long relationship. We laughed, cried, danced, drank, cooked, cleaned, wash dishes together. Smoked up for the first time in my life with her. Got used to smoking a bit. I was living my best life. Yes felt like she's been using my money for groceries and whenever we used to go someplace nice, but it was fine .
Later at the end of the year I decided to switch job and the other job required me to be in a different city. And at the same time something terrible happend at my home I was very disturbed because of that maybe it was my lowest point in my life. Soo as the day came close when I had to move out of the city she told me that she wants to breakup with me as she doesn't wants to be in a long distance relationship and it won't work for her.
I just felt it soo devastating for me. I thought she was the one. We connected really good. And suddenly she broke up. She was the one wanted to be with me even if it was a long distance a year back. And now suddenly felt like nothing matters to her. I was soo invested in her for nothing. A year worth of spending time together was nothing And that to If she were to breakup on a normal time when I was in a normal state of mind I would have processed it better. But she brokeup when I was at my lowest point in my life. She said she would be there for me as a friend and whenever I need to share Something she would be there.
I tried talking her after when I felt low. But it was just dry conversation almost like she's ghosting me. Yesterday she said she can't talk to me this frequent ( we used to talk twice a week) as she's very busy with her work. .
I had some of my stuff left at her place went to collect it, reached to her place after driving for 2 hours and she lived at 3rd floor she brought my stuff down at the main gate of the building. Didn't let me in or asked how am I doing or anything.
Sometimes I just feel she was using me for groceries lol. And maybe someone to pay the bills at fancy places.

2023.06.03 12:34 halcyon_hyacinth Crystal epilator pads any good?

Hullo hullo! Been looking around for good alternative methods of shaving all over, because I struggle with irritated skin while using manual razors, regardless of exfoliation, lotions, etc and I'm also on a limited budget. Someone recommended these crystal epilator things, which look good on paper, but I'm not sure how they work, or if they work. Tbh, they seem a bit too good to be true.
This one's from a brand called Bleame
And i just found this one on amazon
If anyone has had experience with using these, do tell!
