Outdated Advice That Just Doesn't Make Sense Anymore

It's not like anyone wants to give you bad advice. Well, maybe these hilariously bad and dumb life pro tips might be exactly that. This incredibly dumb financial advice also falls into the category of "straight up don't do this."

Polite-ish Ways To Tell Someone To Shut Up

Some of us are talkers, and hopefully you know who you are. There comes a time in every conversation's life when it's time for that conversation to end. Maybe it's when the one person starts talking about their favorite cat names. It could be when you find yourself saying "wow, that's crazy" for the fifth time. But being basically polite people, it helps to have strategies that are better than shouting "I hate you I hate you I hate you."

Supportive Tumblr Thread On Dealing With Invasive Thoughts

Assigning silly identities and voices to those various thought streams that might pop up as invasive, and with a dark tone around them, can be helpful in riding out the process back toward peace. If you're able to step outside the thought when it pops up, recognize it as that, and not identify with the thought, it can almost end up being a game of sorts. Is the conspiracy theorist with the panicked strain piping up again from the back corridors of your mind? Maybe.
