Haha PERFECT response ready to go: I was once walking with my lgbtq+ biracial coworker and a white male (that drove a pickup truck) with a cross around his neck didn't hold the door. When I spoke up, he immediately assumed my pronouns. Shaken to the core, I had to fight my natural fight or flight reflex to find out what to do. I was so scared he might kill us where we stood. I eventually chose not to attack him, and later posted on twitter about it. I got so many retweets.Sounds like a question in a job interview. Do you have a job interview coming up and want to get some good answers?
We all had a few to many bumps in our lives, but I just want to hear the most difficult situation you had to deal with and how did you go about it?
I'll bite with a response like #1 to make up for my sarcastic earlier reply.I for one will be keeping an eye on this thread as I find the subject outstanding.
If I may propose people give serious answers on
1. the most difficult single situation, as in "my car broke down in the middle of an unlit mountain road at 2am in a particularly heavy winter blizzard and i thought i was gonna die" type
2. difficult life situations, i.e. "was homeless for 9 months"
Mental/Emotional: Trying to decide whether or not to continue fighting for access to my kid in the face of family court-sanctioned parental alienation and maternal gatekeeping. Sometimes it just seemed like it might be better to save my own sanity and spare young daughter exposure to the constant conflict and fighting by just fading away and finding her later when she grows up. However, research indicated that almost all adult victims of parental alienation say "I wish Dad had fought harder..." so that's what I did. Also, the idea of going through life wondering if she missed me was unbearable. Glad I hung in there.
Don't do it. You are not alone. I am struggling as well, and sometimes think those kinds of thoughts. But I carry on.....How do I plan to solve this? I think I will take my life
Would love an update to see how you're doing. Find a good church and get to know some members. Pray. Get some exercise. Etc. Hang in there, God bless.Getting through school was crazy... I was emotionally tortured growing up. How I made it through is sit through situations quietly...my options on what else I could do were limited anyway. Soon as I got to my 18th birthday I cut ties with started off on my own. I eventually graduated. And now an attorney
I started my own practise and for 5 years now I have tried to get it off the ground and it has been a tall order. Recently, I got a good court award only for an skewed appeal to take it away. Then it gets worse , the initial award was work I had put hours on end for and took out loans to sustain the workings around it. So I now:- (1) have lost a deserved award (2) currently in piling debt (3) lost motivation completely for anything law related
....How do I plan to solve this? I think I will take my life
Led by Pismenskaya, the scientists backed hurriedly out of the hut and retreated to a spot a few yards away, where they took out some provisions and began to eat. After about half an hour, the door of the cabin creaked open, and the old man and his two daughters emerged—no longer hysterical and, though still obviously frightened, “frankly curious.” Warily, the three strange figures approached and sat down with their visitors, rejecting everything that they were offered—jam, tea, bread—with a muttered, “We are not allowed that!” When Pismenskaya asked, “Have you ever eaten bread?” the old man answered: “I have. But they have not. They have never seen it.” At least he was intelligible. The daughters spoke a language distorted by a lifetime of isolation. “When the sisters talked to each other, it sounded like a slow, blurred cooing.”
