lemme try to help. if you need to do something, start it now so you wont have to later. dont overwork yourself, you can take 5-10 minute breaks if youve done a good amount of work. if you want, get a lil candy to reward yourself :)

Try searching up some refusal skills. They help quite a lot. If you don't want to search 'em up, here are the refusal skills. 1. Say "No" in a strong voice but calmly 2. Just leave the situation 3. Suggest another idea 4. Try changing the subject

Define "dating" and "too soon". If you mean you had a boy/girlfriend in high school or something, I wouldn't count it unless you lasted into adulthood. Most high school couples get together purely for superficial reasons.

Staying with my family. My parents divorced and I stayed with mum, she overworked herself to the point where she had to retire early due to mental breakdown. Now she has crappy pension and (in her opinion) has to take care of Granny that can no longer walk. Since I started working along with attending Uni, I became far more straightforward and clearly say that I don't agree with that. She is exhausted and all she does is complain to me in the evening about everything at granny's. I love my family, they gave me and my brother what they could with the little we always had, but it's a while that I started to notice just how toxic this family actually is. Every little thing will either be ignored or start a both sided yelling fit, there is no room for healthy discussions, every time I wanted to raise a valid argument over something, it's ignored or I'm point blank told that someone like me (a stupid student that can't hold a job, I work with people, not really possible nowadays) should just shut up and leave if I don't like something and in the next breath they start to discuss when will we do the transfer of ownership of Granny's apartment (another issue altogether). I just can't, I'm exhausted, every little thing that happens at our place becomes my fault although I warned them it could happen. I just wish everything will be open again so I can at the very least escape to my job...

That sounds like a solid plan. Try not to worry about what you've spent - you can't unspend it. Focus on enjoying your purchases instead. I did the same with my first wage but I still have the watch I bought and I love it. It kinda reminds me about what I had to do to earn it. In a good way!

She would put me down to her friends and never was happy with anything I did. I knew I should have quit and gotten a different job, but I stayed and let her mistreat me.

I was on a toxic meme app for a while (it was full of racists, homophobes, transphobes ect.). I once posted something expressing myself (not a meme), big mistake. I'll tell you the full story, so, I am an insecure person, there's so many things I hate about myself and I wish I could change. I've never been open to my family about it and this was one social media platform that my family was not on. I've always kept it bottled up inside me for so long. I made a picture, just a blank picture with a text saying "when someone doesn't know how to respond to a compliment, it means they think you're lying to make them feel better, and when they compliment you it's because they don't want you to feel the same way they feel" and I posted it, on a toxic meme app...I got a lot of hate comments, only like 3 people actually cared. People were all just joking about it, but the worst thing is I actually started a huge argument because I was so pissed at these people, I was literally trying to express myself, and everyone hated me for it, and the one argument I was in was really ugly, this person kept calling me homophobic slurs and other mean stuff and then after everything calmed down they acted like it was nothing..

I worked so hard for others and denied my own needs and feelings, i had a massive burnout at 28. You yourself is the most important person in this world, be nice for yourself and for you to do that, you have to take care of yourself. And stop going to toxic forums, stop going to toxic anyting.
