Not being "nice" doesn't make you a bad person either.
I just try to be civil and respectful. It can be difficult sometimes, but you never know what someone may be going through. I believe it's better to try being a bright spot in their day, rather than another source of negativity.

It can actually be a bit depressing how high a bar people often claim basic levels of civility and respectfulness are.

Sometimes it can be tougher than others, but its generally kind of weird being praised for it, to me at least.

True I suppose, though only because people make it that way. Well, convincing everyone to try to be civil and respectful is easier said than done.

Sounds like a pretty good day to me, sometimes its fine for productivity to take a back seat to enjoyment. Work/Life balance or whatever its called?

As long as you can maintain your existence reasonably well its probably fine, people way oversell the "benefits" of stress imo. Better to find a pace that feels livable instead of shaving away your health or whatever, or thats how I tend to feel anyways.

I'm very "my pace" of a person though.

I mean its mostly not anything actually big. More just that even the regular stuff I'm not great at dealing with or getting the desired outcomes in real world situations.

Well, there's also the occasional crisis like waking up to a flooded house cause something broke and leaked all over while I was sleeping.

Mostly its just that like...trying to get hired somewhere is extremely stressful, but not working is also stressful for other reasons, etc. Or not being very good at talking to people vocally a lot of the time.

Little normal things that aren't supposed to actually be a big deal to anyone, but I'm really worried about despite not really showing it on my face most of the time? Well, I fidget a lot if I have something to fidget with though.

>waking up to a flooded house
That sounds awful. Is it all sorted out now, at least?
The whole hiring process can be stressful for sure. I do miss working myself, not that I particularly liked the job or really met anyone I connected with beyond light chit-chat, but it was still nice being out and about. I can understand not being especially talkative around people, sometimes it's just hard to get comfortable around certain crowds.
Think people may worry about things more often then they let on, but everyone has their own masks they put on. There can be a certain comfort to fidgeting around with something.

>That sounds awful. Is it all sorted out now, at least?
Nah, I'm sort of on a "vacation" in the hopes it gets sorted out to some degree this week. Or maybe early next week.

My mother has been staying in an airbnb due to a health program thing so I'm just staying with her while my dad gets all this stuff figured out....since thats a lot better of an idea than trying to have me figure any of it out while he stays up here with mom.

>The whole hiring process can be stressful for sure.

Yeah, even if I didn't need the paycheck, I don't generally mind the work myself (even if customer service can suck sometimes). Getting someone to even consider hiring you is the worst though...especially when your actual reason is "I really need a paycheck and I think maybe you might be desperate enough to give me a chance even if you don't believe in my potential to be your best employee".

Well, that said, part of my problem is that I've only really got maybe one mask compared to a lot of people's many different ones, and its less a mask and more just a veil that conceals everything. Which is still maybe a more "professional" look than clearly being a neurotic goofball, but isn't really a way to stand out from the crowd.

>>5239

Ahhh, so it's recent. Must have felt like a nightmare.
Hopefully it doesn't take too long to be sorted out.

Always have to come up with something that sounds good, rather than just saying the truth that you really only want to work there because you need money.
Concealing everything isn't always a bad thing, depending on the time and place.

Yeah, or well more than anything it felt like a....swamp.

It was really stressful though, especially since I'm not really that strong so I couldn't fix the initial problem on my own, which meant I just was running around throwing all the towels in the house on the floor. Xp

>Concealing everything isn't always a bad thing, depending on the time and place.

Yeah, the problem is more just that I don't really have anything else to go with, not really able to turn on the charm or whatever.

The water tube to the ice maker popped off....apparently. Had to get my brother to come move the fridge to turn it off while waiting for other people to figure out who to contact for repairs. And this was after watching the house properly for almost a week too with no problems.

>If putting on a stoic face in the outside world is what makes you most comfortable, you should find way to make it work best for you.

It's...maybe actually the opposite for me unfortunately. Because I'm uncomfortable and don't know how to deal with things or alternatively am trying too hard to live up to expectations I put up a stoic front and that's just become my default, even though deep down I'm really a rather silly person.

Mhm, that makes sense. I'm not so comfortable out in public either, usually the type that never smiles.

Yeah, especially since one more day or so and it wouldn't have been me needing to deal with it, though we're working around the issue. It was really stressful at the time though...even though I probably didn't look stressed externally.

>Mhm, that makes sense. I'm not so comfortable out in public either, usually the type that never smiles.

Yeah, basically that, I mean I really don't frown much either, so its a lot more like I just don't show how I'm feeling at all. A lot of it is probably due to my insecurities or just feeling too anxious.

Shields up...or something. Though sometimes I just don't know how to react as well...even aside from awkward expressions even when I feel comfy.

I like to think I'm not typically frowning, but either that's just how my resting face really looks, or people really expect you to be smiling all the time.

>So stressed that you just sort of shut-down?
More that I've conditioned myself to not really react to things externally way before this point? Well, that and just not even knowing how I'm "supposed" to react to an unfamiliar situation so just kind of trying to stay out from underfoot.

I do maybe look really overly serious sometimes, but I'm pretty sure a lot of the time I just look really sleepy or like I'm not paying attention. Well, usually I'm paying attention to all the things though and just not managing that well, even if I don't look it.

People definitely expect people in the service industry at least to smile all the time though, maybe a few other times as well? I'm lucky (or maybe sometimes unlucky) to have people notice me at all so maybe thats actually just why people don't comment on me not smiling very much?

It's definitely a pain, being expected to look happy. Can be nice sometimes, not being noticed out of the crowd... guess that one really depends on context.

>Hmm, well that can be a good thing. Even if you're panicking internally, keeping your reactions cool can be really help depending on the situation.

Yeah, I mean that's the idea anyways, though I'm not sure it was a good life choice actually. Since I'm not necessarily actually doing okay or okay with whats going on but noone thinks they should be concerned about my end of it if I don't seem concerned.

>Ahh, have the sort of sleep deprived look going on?

Yeah, yeah basically always, that and kind of looking super pale as well. My skin has been referred to as being "lily white" before in fact. Which is better than being called a wraith or something at least I guess? Not really what you'd call a "Healthy Looking" complexion though.

>It's definitely a pain, being expected to look happy. Can be nice sometimes, not being noticed out of the crowd... guess that one really depends on context.


Yeah, though for that first bit its mostly a pain if you don't feel up for it at the time...or have to do it super long hours...or are just kind of bad at "looking happy". Like my smiles are really awkward looking ones always.

And yeah, not drawing the eye has probably helped me avoid a lot of serious trouble over the years, but it also means I get left out of the loop a lot too even with people I'm somewhat close with.

Well, it just means that I should probably make the effort to speak up more in situations where I want to be noticed though, like it's definitely not all bad.
