2021.09.25 03:10 turtle_fu How do you deal with regret and nostalgia for what never was?
Hey all, I'm 29M.
Lately I've been feeling a lot of regret and nostalgia for how my life has turned out. Especially, I feel regret about not being able to have a traditional high school romance, not dating a lot when I was younger, feeling like I've missed out on life as I'm approaching 30, etc.
I feel like this is kinda a unique experience to being gay. I know a lot of gay guys have been lucky enough to find someone to date in high school. Unfortunately, I wasn't out in high school and didn't accept I was gay until I was 22. I then was in a serious, monogamous relationship for way too long which didn't work out. I never had a promiscuous phase where I really got to explore my sexuality, and now I feel like it's too late.
Lately I've been nostalgic, daydreaming a lot about what if/could of scenarios or fantasies about an idealized teenage and early adulthood that never happened.* I know there's nothing wrong with such fantasies, yet I feel incomplete and inadequate.
I know there's nothing I can really do but look towards the future instead of the past. Yet the past feels like it haunts me. I recently read a novel about a closeted gay man who gets a second chance to relive his teenager years out and it really hit close to home.
*Specifically what I mean is, imagining what my life would have been like if I came out in high school and dated a guy that I had a crush on who also ended up being gay (REALLY feels like I missed out on this one). Or if I started taking the gym seriously much earlier and felt more confident in my body so I could be more promiscuous in my early 20s.
Has anyone else experienced these feelings? How did you manage them?

2021.09.25 03:10 heinaga1989 🐍AnadonDA Token ($nakes) 🐍 ADA Rewards Long Term Investment Here!!!
Quick Token Summary & Vision:
This project is meant to appeal to the more traditional investor. Many projects out there are designed to boom and fall and make many rich and many poor. Reward based projects are great because you are paid in a currency outside of the project’s main token. This project allows people, when they need to take profit, sell the reward token and not the project currency, affecting its value. The price of the coin is less important than overall trading volume, as you are rewarded on volume. This means buys AND sells reward holders with more ADA rewards tokens.
ADA is a unique reward as you can also stake it in the CARDANO network. The best way to profit from this project is to take the ADA rewards and then stake them in their own network. You will be earning passive income two ways. Our core community is a solid one. It comprises of people who have all met in this crazy world of crypto and we wanted to make a great reward project that all of us could enjoy and not feel bad about liquidating since we can now do it by selling our rewards and not our tokens.
▫️TOTAL TRANSACTION TAX: 10%
▪️Reflection to holders: 5.0% in ADA
▪️Community Wallet for Mining Operations & Marketing: 2%
▫️SET SLIPPAGE TO: 12%

The question someone posited was regarding people who accept Christ but deny the veracity of the bible.
All I said is that they were halfway there and all they needed to do was drop Christ.
Religious people get butthurt really really I guess.
What have you kind folks been banned for from religious pages?
