- Buzzfeed Surprisingly, quite a few of these articles are very useful for learning things like lifehacks. The trick is learning to browse the site by using the recommended articles you see at the bottom of the page after you click on some inane clickbait article.
- Ebaums World Years ago, you could learn useful things on SomethingAwful, Cracked, or even 4chan. Nowadays both the far right and the far left are doing their best to censor everything they don't like, and the only thing left is echo chambers like Reddit. Even 4chan has become a far right echo chamber; while SomethingAwful descended into drama and mediocrity. Most of the rest of the internet is clickbait designed to earn advertising income via clicks and selling your browsing habit info. Well, ebaumsworld has come far from its meme stealing days and now it is actually informative. I kid you not.
- r/Askreddit Popular threads often clarify issues that no one really understands that well. Worth frequenting.
Relationships Are Hard
- The saying "you can't pour from an empty cup" is very true; here are some Mental Health Tips
- Bear in mind that neurodiversity is often invisible. Someone you are friends with, family with, or in a relationship with may have at least one mental health condition that has not been diagnosed, and this could potentially hurt you both. In fact, it is likely you may have some kind of mental condition as well even if it is mild enough to have symptoms that aren't very noticeable - heck, you could have developed one just from living through 2020. It's not something to be ashamed of and it is very normal. Learn about some mental health conditions here, or preferably in the Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy, mental health chapter. I wouldn't have recommended this if the mental health crisis in this country wasn't so prevalent, and therapy so hard to attain for most people.
- Bad Relationship Habits
- Beware of relationship stereotypes. For some reason peer pressure is even more intense when it comes to relationships than it is for drugs, even. For instance: the "soul mate," the rom-com cliches, the "you must date or lose your virginity by 30," the "look a certain way to get you a man," the "you're a failure if you're not strapped to The Perfect Person for life" and so on and so forth. It seems like movies, TV shows, fairy tales and a whole lot of culture brainwashes you into believing that relationships should or must be a certain way. Don't just blindly accept this social conditioning. Think about it.
