Okay I don’t think I’ve ever felt this stupid in my life but I’m sitting here sobbing because I was trying to buy an usakumya on lacemarket and someone bought it like 5 seconds before I did and it came with the most adorable little ribbon and now I’ll never have it and I’m so upset

Oh, anon. I've been sniped before and it's such a bad feeling. One of the worst. I hope you'll find the kumya you want in time, but for now please be kind to yourself. Cry if you need to, vent if you need to. It's fine to be sad about this.

I know people post stuff like this sometimes and no one takes it seriously but i'm about to leave a small will for my friends to be able to take over my small wardrobe after i die. I plan on attempting an overdose today. I am a lolita, 22, i have bipolar adhd bpd and suffer brain damage from a previous attempt. i'm so depressed and my anxiety is spiking a lot. I recently have run into financial problems, not due to my lolita habits, but even selling what dresses i have currently wouldn't bring me out of this hole i'm in. I've been burning my arms with cigarette lighters all morning and trying to act normal to my friends so i don't concern them, but i think they know i'm not doing too well at the moment. i don't see any point to being alive, i'm so broke and i've been filling out applications for a second job to no avail, im chronically ill and have a hard time even just living normally and since my last suicide attempt left me with brain damage i just feel incredibly slow and stupid, like i cat even keep up at doing the things i once loved. my relationship is falling apart, i was cheated on and i have no where to go or anyone to turn to in a several hour radius. my life is utter shit and even the one thing that made me happy anymore can't fill the void inside my heart and brain that knows things genuinely would move on for everyone in my life after i am done. at least i can leave nice things for my friends to have, since my wardrobe has some really nice rare finds. i have all four bottles of my anxiety and anti-depressant medications in front of me, i know even just taking the rest of my stomach medication would put me in a near coma state, or give me seizures so all four should really do the job. it's been a great run in this community and i genuinely have loved all of the people i've met and had fun posting pictures and interacting with everyone. but i have to do something about my life and i have to just go. i'm sorry to all my friends.

I want you to know now that pills are the least effective way to kill yourself.
You think it is enough, but what ends up happening a lot is you will get super sick, get rescued or have second thoughts, and possibly end up with even more problems. You said you have tried this before. Is that what happened?
I am not saying to try another way. We often have to say "think of your friends and family" but that is for you.
There is a reason women are unsuccessful in suicide most of the time and it is because they try to overdose.
I don't want you to be in more pain. Seriously consider calling a suicide hotline, get some options for tonight and move toward financial security over time. There are resources and they can help you. It's not a fast process but it can get better. Hold on to that. It will be bad for awhile, but you can do it.
Your friends don't want your brand, they want you.

I know you don't want to hear any of this, but you are not lost. Your life is not over. The shitty feelings won't last forever. And yes, there is a way to live with your diagnosis and still find happiness in life. You are only 22 years old. Many people struggle at that age and don't know their place in this world yet. Many people fail at what they thought they wanted to achieve in life. Many people lose everything when they are young. As harsh, as this sounds: Start over again. The good thing is, you are still young and you can do anything if you start now. You are not destined to stuck with this situation. Seriosuly. Move, learn something new, change your career, forget the people who hurt you. And it's not true that you aren't loved. Otherwise you wouldn't leave that note to your friends. Reach out to those friends! Talk to someone irl. Seek out for help! And please don't attempt suicide in one of one most inefficient ways. You will regret it later.

There's this absolutely beautiful, one-of-a-kind piece I've been trying to buy for over a year now. The seller never responded to my questions about the sizing (she didn't list any measurements on her listing) so I didn't get it in fear that it wouldn't fit and I'd have trouble selling it. But a year passed, the listing was still up and I still loved it as much as I loved it the first day I saw it. So I bought the listing, thinking if it doesn't fit I would just display it in my room or something, since it was just that beautiful. And if they never sent out the item I could start a case and get my money back. Well, the seller finally did get back to me, but only to tell me she sold it to someone in person a long time ago. I know maybe I'm stupid for waiting for so long to purchase the listing since it's obviously what got her to respond but I was trying to be patient waiting for her answer and now I'm just frustrated and sad.

(sorry for same) but it's actually way harder to kill yourself than you think and it's usually at impulsive moments since the human body will typically reject most self harm. it's why cutters and other people with self harm issues usually don't do it for attention it's out of impulsive behavior to feel something other than what they feel at that moment

I literally want to kill those people.

People with high levels of dopamine and serotonin naturally tend to have a negative reaction of weed because chronic usages activates the 5-HT2A receptor in the brain causing panic disorders (what I have) and anxiety.

For about three months I had non-stop panic disorder, now it’s a little more controlled but I have adrenal fatigue and low DHEA in my brain (had the hormone tests results come in the other day, another $300 bill I didn’t have insurance for lel) and I’m literally not the same person.

I’m taking medicine now to get my hormones back to normal (certain vitamins) and I just pray I can return back to the person I used to be before I smoked.

My grandfather passed away recently. I'm going to go see him for the last time tomorrow at his funeral or whatever it's called. This is the first time anyone has passed in my life and it sucks. I'm terrified of seeing my family all crying tomorrow, I'd rather just hole myself up in my house and do anything else. More than that, I ordered a dress prior to all this happening and I think it's being held up at customs and it's really annoying because it'll most likely arrive tomorrow or the day after where I'm supposed to be out all day. I just don't know what to do gulls, I've become so depressed and this is such a horrible time. I can only hope that time will just pass faster so these feelings and pain will soften and I can get back to living. Does anyone have any advice for this sort of thing?

>> No.10154379

>>10154374
I'm sorry about your grandfather Anon, but your wish to stay at home and not do anything is a bad idea. You're trying to avoid the pain of his passing, instead of facing it head on. Why are you so afraid of seeing your family crying? A funeral and the events leading up to it usually bring families together for both good and bad. As much as death hurts it can reunite the living. I want to suppose your family wants to see you. Please go there.

In regards to your dress, I don't suppose you have any friends who can house sit for you on short notice? You didn't mention where you're from, but there should also be papers you can sign and put on your door which asks the deliverymen to either leave the package unattended or give it to a neighbor of your choice. If you find the neighbor option I think they need to have a slip of permission with your name on it too.

But really I think that dress is just your excuse to avoid your family matters. Be depressed, you have a right to mourn, but don't just fall into apathy and despair. I believe in you!

I went and saw him on the night he passed, but it was after he passed away. The sight of him just lying there... He looked terrible. As cruel as it sounds, I almost regret seeing him like that. That person there didn't feel like my grandpa. I'm of course going to go tomorrow, because that's what I'm obliged to do, but I don't know how long I'll be staying there for. The day after he passed I had a huge emotional breakdown. Crying, shaking, vomiting, the whole lot. I hated feeling like that. It was terrifying. I felt like I was going to die. The reason I'm scared of going is because seeing my family cry will probably put me in a state like that again, and I don't know how to cope when I'm like that. My world just falls apart. It's also complicated because I'm not on very good terms with my family. I ran away after they did terrible things to me, but now I have to see them all again, almost forcefully because of grandpa's passing. I wanted to see them on my own terms, in my own time, but I'm obliged to see them now as well, and it's messing me up. The only thing that's kept me out of being a complete immobile sobbing wreck is distracting myself, and I feel like I've been able to heal somewhat by interacting with my friends and doing my hobbies like normal. I don't feel like there's anything I can do aside from that. I haven't found my answer to his death yet. Knowing that he's in peace and not suffering, knowing that he'd want the best for me right now, none of those excuses work. It feels like there's nothing I can do aside from that.

I have been thinking that I should just leave a note on the door for my dress, I should probably just do that really. I'm talking about the dress as well because it's also making me stressed, but also to keep somewhat on topic. I appreciate you responding to me anon.

My vote is for not going if your family’s as bad as you reference them to be.
Your grandpa is dead, nothing more, nothing less.
All those memories of him exist inside you only, you don’t need to create new traumatic memories or otherwise anytime you think of him in the future you’ll think about the bad memories.

We've been getting better and been on better terms recently, but I'm still just not really ready to see them like this. My ma watched him die, and my nan isn't really helping her cope since she's gone into full denial so she's trying to vent to me instead. But the problem is that she's the one who's done most of these things to me, but she made it all the more complicated recently by doing what seems to be an actual honest apology of the way she's treated me over the years, but I just feel like now isn't a good time to deal with that. I'd been waiting for years for that apology. Why'd she have to do it now? It's just all too much. I think I'll go, but I won't stay for long. Just give my respects to my grandpa and then leave. You're not wrong about the memories though anon. But people tell me I need to see these things to get closure or something, so I don't really know.

This was me when I saw Chick-Chan on CC for like $50 and missed him by less than a minute. I cried and had an awful week and pretty much hated everything.
Pretty soon after one popped up on Mercari for $120 (confirmed it wasn't a reseller, different condition) and I bought it. Sometimes I'm happy when stuff comes up more expensive than what others are willing to pay because it means I can get it without fighting. I'm also just stupid for throwing cash at problems, but whatever, I have Chick-Chan now.

TLDR; I hope it pops up again for you and you can outpay the broke itas.

If you're anywhere near a large city, just look for a tall parking garage. Preferably 4 stories or more. Look near major universities, large shopping complexes, and amusement parks or sporting venues...any place they need to cram a large amount of cars into a limited area.
Roof access usually isn't restricted on these structures, and most of them don't really have any kind of high fence or anything to keep you from jumping.

When my father was dying, there were a lot of moments where my family was together in a room discussing how to go on. We'd all devolve into tears and sobs, but the most boisterous laughter would follow. I dreaded going to his funeral. I slept a majority of the day before it happened and made sure to eat and drink because I knew that I'd cry myself to exhaustion and dehydration the next day. Of course we had our share of tears, but I also saw the way that my family came together to comfort one another. Sharing funny stories and our favorite memories of him eased the pain, even if it was followed by the ache of not getting to experience any more with him. That ache of longing and missing someone who meant so much to you will never leave, but neither will the love and joy that they brought into your life. Life doesn't "get easier", but you become more accustomed to living with the grief. Be patient with yourself, cry, put your grief on the side for a while to take a breath, and chase every bit of happiness that you can. I picked up sewing as a hobby shortly after he passed and I'm close to finishing my first garment now a year later. It didn't "save my life" but having something to keep preoccupied has helped immensely. Like many things in life, it's a balancing act. You'll find your peace soon, I promise. My condolences about your grandfather, anon. May your dream dress find its way into your closet.

>> No.10154451

Different anon, but closure is subjective. You might find closure at his funeral or you might not. Personally, I didn't find mine there or at the grave site. There is no guidebook to how grieving must be done. You need to follow the path that your heart guides you. No one expects you to be whole at a funeral. Everyone is grieving too. It's okay not to be okay.

>He looked terrible. As cruel as it sounds, I almost regret seeing him like that
It's not at all. My grandparents asked for an open casket for my father when he passed and it was the most traumatizing thing for my mothers, sisters, and I. He looked like the dummy Will from Stranger Things. It looked like he was made of plastic and inflated like a balloon. It hurt so much to see him looking so cold and posed like a doll. We all agreed that we would never allow an open casket to happen to our loved ones again.

My husband absolutely hates lolita & jfashion/jculture in general.

There was a con in our city a few months back and there happened to be a lolita meet at a restuarant we go to often. This was the first time I'd seen lolitas in public and my husband made a comment like, "Why are they dressed up like giant babies?" and then proceeded to rant about how stupid/embarrassing it is to dress up in public like that. We are very much ying and yang in that he is very practical black&white and I've been the more creative, open-minded one, so it's hard for me to be upset with him for it because I know it's his nature to be unsettled by stuff like this.

I have always enjoyed dressing up in fancy clothing and ever since encountering lolita online a few years back I've wanted to try it. I just know it would create a rift at home especially around buying pieces which my husband would see as a huge waste.

My cosplay comm is rapidly falling apart lmao. The discord never talks about cosplay or conventions anymore, it's just interpersonal drama over absolutely nothing. In high school drama wasn't even this petty. I don't have this issue in other areas of my life- it feels like people act their age and have their shit together for the most part pretty much everywhere except cosplay.

Assuming he doesn't know you are interested in it you could just tell him and explain why you like it.
It would only be a "leave him" situation if he knew you liked it and was being mean about it.
He might never be on board 100% but if you explain your side and agree to disagree it isn't so bad.

it's a different story how they may react to you having an interest in lolita fashion, because as your partner they should support your interests. it's ok for him to not feel fully comfortable with it immediately. i know my partner doesn't like the attention that goes w wearing lolita & that's totally fine. but he'd never name call or say it's embarrassing, bc it's important to me & i enjoy it.

>tfw no lolita friends
Every lolita I've met was not friend material, lives too far away or is too busy to become a good friend. I don't want someone to sit next to at meet-ups sometimes, I want someone I can regularly hang out with. I'm starting to think meets are not the right way to find a lolita friend.

Someone on LM messaged me asking if I'd sell them an item for 50% less than my starting auction price and ship it to them for free. I'm not sure how to respond. "I'm a lolita doing a closet cleanout sale, not a crackhead pawning off my belongings" is tempting, but probably not appropriate.

An instagram popular kawaii fashion thot type girl is joining my lolita comm and for the first meet she's attending she's decided to wear a kiss me cat replica in an OTT way, with a cat head sceptre, a fish shaped bag ( because kitties eat fish so it works <3 ), cat ears and angel wings. Because that makes sense. IDEK

> It's not even an OTT meet
> I was planning my own more casual angel cord and I feel a bit annoyed they've decided to shove wings into this ita sounding monstrosity.
> Her white knights will probably praise her and tell her she looks amazing and validate that somehow it's not a total mishmash of themes and is definitely correct lolita
> I'm too chickenshit to tell her it sounds terrible because I don't want the drama

I'm fucking triggered that she's probably going to get shit tonnes of attention and praise when she's going to looks like such a hot mess, claiming to be "lolita" when she's wearing a replica of the most casual-tier dress and shoving random incoherent elements onto it.

if she seems overly eager, gets super close for the photos and asks for your instagram/facebook/social media she might be interested in you and probably not mind if you started to chat with them.

If you you to reciprocate, send them a message and say "thanks for the follow, thanks for taking a pic with me at the con, it was nice meeting you at the con and i hope you had a good time" or some BS to open a communication channel. If she replies in a way to begin a conversation i.e more than just "it was good to meet you too, thanks" I'd say that she's interested in getting to know you.

If I was trying to get with a hot cosplayer, and they personally messaged me, I'd be thrilled and would then try to create continued communication. Something like. "What con are you going to next? What's your next cosplay? I'd be interested in hearing about how you made the costume, what other cosplay do you want to do? It was a great cosplay, why did you choose that character?" Anything to get the conversation rolling.

If someone is actively trying to carry on a conversation like that then it's usually safe to assume they may have an interest and through that same conversation you can gauge how interested they are. Once the conversation "ends" see if they message you back later or closer to another con. If someone is looking forward to you being somewhere and will be looking for you to chat with. it's also a good sign.

Alternatively if you're passive and are more willing to make the first move, ask the girl for her instagram or something after any pics so you can follow her or just ask "hey would you want to chat more over social media?". If she says no be respectful and just say no problem, thanks for the compliment on the cosplay and enjoy the con.

it only matches because of the filter. The dress is clearly pink compared to the obviously champagne dresses. The filter is really warm making the dresses merge together more, but it must have been an eyesore IRL.

I have a friend who outside of cosplay is a fantastic person but is so terribly high maintenance that I can't help but think of her negatively when we're not hanging out.

I think what really ticked me off was that she had been doing panels lately and she put in one for a convention that has a lot of applicants. She does several of them a year, she did one last month. And so did I. My friends were saying that they were sure both of us would get in because they were popular topics. We started seeing people getting approvals and so far we got nothing. I've never hosted one so I didn't feel too bad, worst case scenario I'll just have more time to shop and get to see other panels and try again. But she went on a tantrum about how come other people's shitty panels got approved and that it "disappoints her so much" that she didn't get in. The entitled attitude is such a turn off that it makes me kinda glad neither of us got in. Maybe that's shitty of me but this community is made up of so many entitled people, it is satisfying to see someone not get their way for once.

I try hard to keep up appearances. I have hobbies and I especially enjoy lolita and making friends in the community. Still, nothing really fulfills me. I'm sad and lonely most of the time. I can't stop thinking about how if I just vanished from the community one or two people would wonder what happened to me but I'd be forgotten in a heartbeat. I spend a lot of time looking at other lolitas and admiring their creativity, their style, their projected personalities, but I don't think anyone looks at me that way. The best thing I can say about myself is that I'm a decent person with good intentions, but those things are often misconstrued and easily forgotten. I want attention (obviously) but more than that I want to believe that people appreciate me the same way I appreciate them, especially since I'm bad at appreciating myself.

>> No.10158277

>>10158269
the best way to get others to appreciate you is to put yourself out there, anon. post pictures from your hobbies, or art/poetry/photos you make, write posts, do things and show yourself and people will come. but if you don't do things like that, people won't have anything to see and will "look over" you. This is something I have learned from experience. it can be hard, but it has to be done.

I am so new to this whole culture so it was a bit confusing for me. I went to my first convention yesterday and there was so many people and hundreds of stands and stuff to go to and whatever. But I don't have much interest in cosplaying since I don't like my body, I was never a comic book or story nerd, and I just felt so lost as to what to do. It didn't help that my one friend was following me around the whole day like I was supposed to entertain them or something, I was just as confused/lost as he was. The only fun part was spending like an hour or so watching a cosplay event and making jokes with this cool guy standing next to me. I got a couple of photos with some peeps in really amazing costumes and bought some cheap weeb merch, but I left feeling really underwhelmed. Was there anything I was supposed to really do there? Should I have gotten a bigger friend group to come with?

I’m sad/bitter that after quite a few years of cosplaying I don’t have any cosplay friends. I’m mutuals with quite a few, but any attempt to engage with most of them gets ignored. I figured my cosplays look bad or that I’m ugly enough to the point they just don’t want to share or like my photos, but sometimes when someone else is in the photo with me they’ll comment about that person even if they don’t know them and never mention me. If they want people to follow them so they can be popular, that’s fine, but they really didn’t need to follow me back if they felt they had to go out of their way to ignore me.
It doesn’t help that the majority of them constantly make PSAs about supporting other/smaller/minority cosplayers but only share popular ones.

One time I made a tweet about hoping to make more cosplay friends at a con I was going to and one of them messaged me saying I should just make a private account and talk to my normie friends instead which didn’t make any sense to me?

I’ve barely had better luck making friends in person since I have the luck of getting on well with people who live far away or don’t use social media much so it’s a little more difficult to build that into actual friendship. The upside is at least I know they’re nice in person and still feel motivated to make an effort, but it still feels shitty being a lone cosplayer.

I understand the feeling of wanting to own or you feel like you own your friends but you need to get over yourself- they’re living their life, paying their bills, and at the end of the day they’re the ones who will wake up everyday with the actions they’ve taken. It’s their choice to make, you should have no say or influence, nor should you really feel anyway. This logic would apply if your friend was getting married, an abortion, etc.

you are treating this as if your friend is going away or dying or something. there's no tragedy here. if u are really their friend u should support them & be happy for them. they're out there living their best life & u can't support them being true to themselves on the deepest level? you sound like a bad friend.

Whenever I have a bad thought about a transsexual I watch a Contrapoints video to cleanse myself

>> No.10160167 [DELETED] 

At my current job, which I'm now starting to dislike, I'm really interested in being friends with three people who I really think are nice and cool to be with, but they keep taking me for granted and rarely ever invite me to things despite me actively making attempts at friendly conversation, showing concern about them and their problems, hearing them out...

It's making me so miserable because I have to be with them daily and it's starting to become extremely lonesome around here, what with me always being the odd one out in our team, the person who no one really expresses hate or dislike for but at the same time nobody really cares about. It's also really frustrating. I find that the people I met from fanmeets and cons who I have been hanging out with on and offline care more about me, but they live too far and are also busy with their own lives, so I can rarely bond with them in person.

Should I just stop hurting myself and accept the fact that I'm just not interesting enough for my officemates despite how much I really like them, and just focus on my distant friends..? I've been feeling more and more demotivated to even work...

I have a good friend whose transition I've been watching from the very beginning and the difference between now and then is incredible, he is SO much happier nowadays.
In the very beginning it was a bit strange, especially getting used to calling someone I had known for a good while a completely new name and pronouns. But it honestly didn't take all that long..? Seeing him excited about transitioning made me excited for him and having been there to support him through their journey has been nothing but rewarding. I was there in all the more difficult times and in all the better parts and it only got us closer.
If you care for your friend, stop being selfish and open up to change. They won't become a completely different person, just their exterior is changing.

If you don't care enough to get over yourself and support then in their decision, then I honestly think you should leave. Transitioning is quite a long and difficult process and your friend is gonna need all the support through it, they don't need to feel bad about it because of you.

I'm having a similar problem

Someone I started dating is transitioning but they're going to be starting T soon and I feel like such an asshole if I say anything. I obviously still like them and they like me a lot as well. I have no problem dating someone male identifying and stuff like top surgery doesn't bother me but I just hate body hair. I did research into T therapy and I just don't think I could realistically see myself with someone who looks more manly then me in all honesty. Is there a way I can voice my concern without hurting them? I still really like them and I would never want to do anything to hurt them it's just I can't seem to get over it. Is there anyone who can just educate me or give me advice on the situation?

>> No.10162710

>>10162618
I feel like you should just be honest. Just like the person transitioning, you can't force yourself to be someone you're not. Don't ever force yourself to be attracted to someone, or "settle" because someone else changed. You can offer your love, support, and friendship, but I'd really advise against continuing a romantic relationship if you're gut is telling you this. If they don't understand, they they are being the insensitive one, not you. Attraction is mental and physical. Everyone screaming that people are assholes for not staying with their transitioned partners are just unrealistic. You absolutely have to have the physical attraction to work, and if you look at them and see "Ew, hair" it will take the magic out of things.

Bought the Drink Me JSK and headbow from an SS whilst I'm living in Japan. All good, wait for it to be made, my SS messages me to confirm she picked it up. I see the pictures and remember that I already have the headbow in the same colour as I ordered at home. So now I've paid for a headbow that I'll have to resell at home for way less than I bought it for. Great.

I hate it when people try to sell damaged shit for like $15 less than the usual price it sells for. I also hate how much people misuse the phrase "minor damage" - it's not about how physically big the damage is, is about how wearable the item still is. For example, people calling a bunch of smaller, but untreatable stains on the front of the garment "minor damage". If it affects the way you wear it severely, for example, having to cover the entire bodice with a bolero every time you wear it because it's stained, it's not fucking minor.

What the fuck, guys? I've been on a cocktail of PTSD medications my entire life that have varied from being ineffective to just barely working. You're telling me some fuckin squares of paper were what I needed instead? I'm just so happy that I was able to discover this. Like, don't get me wrong it's not like I'm "cured" or don't have things to work on but this was the largest boost I've had emotionally in forever.

It really felt like a lifechanging experience. I probably took too much for a first time because it felt overwhelming at times but maybe that's what I needed.

I wouldn't say he's toxic, but I always tell this to people:
Your tastes in fashion are a reflection of your personality. Think about it - we wear clothes to visually express ourselves. They're an extension of what we think of ourselves, what we value, how we want the world to view us, and what we resonate with. I always bring this up when people complain about lolita comms being stupid because "the only thing you have in common is clothing." Which is true, but there are almost certainly common grounds to touch on simply because there are reasons to WHY you love the fashion that you probably share with one another.

Those scene kids from the 2000's were wearing the fashion mostly because they thought of themselves as anti-society, rebellious, pained, misunderstood, outcasted, etc. Not everyone, but most of them probably had some of those common themes, it's what attracted them to the style and the culture that was attached to the style is a testament to that.

So someone rejecting your style in fashion cuts deeper than just them not liking a particular shirt you do or a hairstyle you like. It's like they're rejecting a part of your personality, part of your identity. It can feel really saddening and can cause emotional turmoil. If he knows you dress like that and straight up calls it "giant baby" clothing in front of you, it's a direct insult to you and you have every right to feel hurt. If this is the case, he was knowingly taking a jab at you perhaps in hopes that he discourage you from expressing that side of yourself and that is indeed toxic behavior and flat out manipulative/controlling.

My suggestion is that you talk things out with him. Actually sit down and get his opinion directly about your style and try to explain that it's important to you. If he can't respect that, it's really up to you to determine how important it is or not to have that side of you accepted by your partner. IMO any partner that refuses to accept me isn't the one.

>I wouldn't say he's toxic,

What I mean by this is that it isn't inherently toxic unless he knew you dress that way btw. It's vague from your post if he knows that's your style.
