DearSugar's Venting Machine: Week of March 19th, #2

Welcome to DearSugar’s Venting Machine, a place to air and share your daily grievances.

Research strongly indicates that rumination and pent-up frustration are bad for our well-being and our relationships. Let it go here, girls, so it doesn’t follow you home.

Me first!

I have a friend who can't or won't take control of her life, and I feel increasingly maxed out around it. It's been so long, and it feels so patterned, and I just don't know how to be supportive around everything right now. I'm capable of creating more distance and taking care of myself, but it hurts . . . and I feel sad that she's so far from having the confidence and courage required to take the wheel and drive.

Since moving in with my fiance almost a month ago I've had major insomnia. When I do fall asleep for the night, I am up at 4:30 a.m. I just want to have a normal sleep schedule again!

I have been with my boyfriend for over a year and a half and we have only "made love" 2 time this year! Besides that he's obsessed with his dog and pays me no attention. He cuddles with the dog and not me. When I try to break up with him he tells me how much he loves me. all of his love and affection goes to the dog! I'm a sucker ok.. I think it is so weird though. He's also a mamas boy he lets his mom go through my stuff like my underwear. wtf?

Oh oh oh my turn! For a long time I was fine with having younger friends, age doesn't matter to me. Well I have recently stopped talking to my best friend because her being 20 and me being 22 she is in this place in her life where everything is so eye opening and changes herself to fit a mold every time something slight happens to her. She is also VERY judgemental and I'm finally just sick of listening to her judge everyone. Also I've been having these dreams where my boyfriend of almost a year (a year on 4/13) is cheating on me with his ex; who is also my ex friend. (I know I know I seem to have a lot of ex friends but it's only because I try to distance myself from people who are not nice.) Anyways, I keep waking up mad at my boyfriend for something that isn't his fault. What am I to do?! I also weigh way more then I would like right now. :( I need to lose weight for a wedding I'm going to be in in three months. ARGH!

my company just moved into a new office building, and even though i'm not a receptionist, my boss decided to put me at the receptionist desk in the lobby (probably because i'm the only woman in my company...don't get me started on the sexist aspect of sitting up here!). i don't mind my little receptionist area too much, except when my coworkers start TAKING THINGS FROM MY DESK!!! just because i'm in the lobby, and i don't have an official "office" anymore, doesn't mean that everything on my desk is up for grabs!!! being in the lobby doesn't make my little space any less of a personal office. i don't go through their desk and steal their stuff...what right do they have to go through mine??? plus the lobby is FREEZING. i guess i shouldn't complain though...i get to quit in a few months and go back to school! hooray!!

Oh yeah, I found it a bit annoying that in last months Cosmo mag there was this article about how ridiculous a Size 0 is and how the image of skinny is becoming more and more skeletal and unhealthy. The article further went into how we should be happy and eat healthy. But then on the pages following the article there were about 5 advertisements for weightloss pills.... pffft. ------------------------------------------------------------- Hi Ho silver....Awwwwwaaaaaaaaayyyy!!

Ugghhhhh don't get me started... I'll take up this entire page, lol... I will start by saying that individuals need to get the hint that the lives and overall dislikes of my man and I do not revolve around them. There are others that we dislike in this world, and we only address those upon provocation. We've moved on from our past relationships and feel no need to revive those problems. Believe me when I say it, we don't care about you (this individual) anymore. $50 says that she'll be reading this via internet search on my screenname. woooooooooooosssssssssaaaaaaaaaaa
