Does anyone else here have ASMR? I have it and would like to know other people's experiences. What do you like? I find pulling crispy pastry strudel to be just wonderful. Crunching leaves as I walk. Pop-its. So many sounds.
Do you ever wonder if the person you think you are is how others perceive you?
For example: I was very shy when I was younger. I felt what I had to say wasn't important so I didn't talk. I learned that instead of seeming shy, people thought I was stuck up and "too good" to talk to them. It's not about caring what other people think. It's about how we form connections, display emotions, etc., as a result of the person we show to others.
Before I met my boyfriend (seahorse) I hadn't heard of Lemmy or the word Fediverse. I didn't know there was this world of federated servers people could host independently that communicate with each other. I am by far not a techy.
He told me he ran an instance. My response was exactly, "What is Lemmy instance? Idk about such things." I gave this silly response because I felt a bit stupid due to my ignorance. Hosting. Servers. What?
During my short time here I have seen a stark contrast between Lemmy, and FB and IG. I feel sort of a sense of leveling up (thanks to him). I still have my accounts on the latter two social media platforms, but dislike them for several reasons.
I like that Lemmy isn't a popularity contest. People don't post pictures depicting a fake perfect life, there is no competition for followers/friends, and no one is trying to sell me something. I hope this sticks.
I hope to expand my use of Lemmy and my knowledge.
How do you handle being the one out of your siblings who is caring for your parent? I am trying to accept that because I live here (since my mom's injury) I do pretty much everything and will from now on. Why don't siblings want to be around and help? I can't change anyone. Trying to practice radical acceptance.
