2022.01.26 15:35 revolted-turtle Please offer some advice about my relationship with my best friend that I grew apart with
Starting off by saying I have no clue if this belongs here, if it doesn’t I’m sorry, I’ll take it down. Also, it will be long, but if you want to respond, please read the whole thing, don’t just say TL;DR and wing it with the advice.
I need to explain this so someone could help me a bit better. I am now in my second year of college, and when I was in high school I had a best friend. We were inseparable and during school each other was pretty much all we had. We both didn’t really fit in, and she was very disliked by most of the classmates simply for having a bubbly personality, so they took her for granted. She was very bullied then and I was pretty much her only friend. And she was mine because I have severe social anxiety and once I made a good friend I didn’t need anyone else. Also because of my social anxiety and fearing talking to people, but having her as a friend, I also became their target for bullying (on some days it was so bad that we couldn’t even go to school and had to skip it because of them). During the last year of high school our relationship got a bit rocky and we had a few minor arguments (about very petty things, we were just young and immature). We didn’t end the relationship or anything, we didn’t have a bad fight or something like that. No one was like “I hate you and never want to see you again”, we just kinda grew apart. She got into one college, I got into another, now we live about 600km apart. During the first year in college when I moved here I had a very difficult time, and I kept messaging her and talking to her, but she started ghosting me. So at one point I said to myself “Let’s see what happens if I don’t message her first and wait for her to do that, since I’m always the one initiating the conversations.” And she didn’t say anything for 3 months. Then she messaged me only to ask if I was participating in a project our universities were working on together. I said no and that was the whole conversation. It’s been 2 years since then and we haven’t talked at all, not even typical pleasantries that are expected in my culture (for example just wishing someone a merry christmas or happy easter or happy birthday, no matter how distant you are, even if you talk to someone once a year on their bday to say happy birthday, it’s normal, and expected). But from time to time I still think about her and miss her. After all, she was my best best friend and has always been there for me. We shared so many memories and skipped days of school just to have fun together. We got in trouble together and we succeeded together by helping each other most of the time. I truly truly miss her and it hurts every time I remember her or think about my high school days. I wish to talk to her again and maybe try to be friends if she wants, but if she was the one that ghosted me back then, it left me feeling as if she just didn’t need me and didn’t want to be my friend anymore. Her birthday is coming up (first week next month) and I want to send her a message to wish her happy birthday (despite not doing it 2 years in a row) and I want to talk to her again, catch up, maybe even be friends. But I am terrified and i do not know if I should do it. I’m scared of potential rejection, I’ve had a very rough past and don’t handle it well. My mental health wouldn’t be able to take that hurt. I don’t know what to do. I sometimes miss her so much it hurts, but then I think this is what she might’ve wanted. Maybe she doesn’t want to talk anymore and I’m doing both of us a favor by staying away. What should I do? Should I try to talk with her, especially since we’re both 20 now, more mature then we were back then? Or should I just try to push through this? I thought I’d miss her less as time went by if I learned to cope with it, and I tried but it only got worse. Please give me some advice
P.S. I apologise for the grammar of this, I am Romanian, and not a native English speaker.

2022.01.26 15:35 JustKidding456 How are Hebrew speakers from Israel to believe in Lutheran beliefs of which they have never heard? And how are they to hear without a Lutheran Study Bible to read or someone preaching?
I’m not a member of the LCMS; I’m a member of the Lutheran Church in Singapore (LCS). Despite the fact that the LCS does not have an affiliation with the LCMS, by the grace of God, The Lutheran Study Bible (TLSB) has aided in my belief in Lutheran beliefs and consequently my trust in God.
If I’m not mistaken, the gospel is for the Jew first and also to the Gentile. However as far as I know, there is no Lutheran mission to Hebrew speakers from Israel. I fail to find evidence for an LCMS or International Lutheran Council mission to Hebrew speakers from Israel. I cannot find evidence for a Lutheran World Federation mission to Hebrew speakers; the closest I managed to find is The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land which preaches to Arabic speakers from Israel, Palestine, and Jordan but not to Hebrew speakers.
I’m afraid it signals that there is not a single Hebrew speaker who believes in Lutheran beliefs. I believe that, for now, the most practical option is to translate TLSB into Hebrew. However this presents another challenge: Finding good-quality Hebrew translators whom Concordia Publishing House (CPH) would allow to complete the translation.
Romans 10:14 (ESV)
How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?submitted by JustKidding456 to LCMS [link] [comments]

2022.01.26 15:35 OutrageousLength4773 DIY venues in Waco ??
howdy ! so I really want to help bring more life to Waco's DIY music scene. house shows are the best way to foster a city's DIY scene and create an environment for local musicians and artists to have a blast, network, and support each other !!!
I unfortunately am living in an apartment and am therefore unable to host shows at my place. I am wondering if there is anybody out there with a living room, basement, kitchen, barn, backyard, or anything you think could be a kickass venue. I will find the bands, make the posters, do the promoting, run the door, everything. just need some places to bring it all together :)
please let me know if you have a spot or and are interested in jumpstarting the scene in Waco !!!!

2022.01.26 15:35 jjustpeachyy Canada’s “Justice” System
i just need to rant for a second, and i hope in the process it will prompt a healthy discussion about Canada’s criminal justice system.
i was in the court system in Alberta/YEG for roughly a year and a half. in 2021, i “won” the case, he finally plead guilty after an overwhelming amount of evidence was presented against him.
let me preface by saying just because he plead guilty, doesn’t mean he got a punishment. his slap on the wrist consisted of 2 years probation (roaming free, no restrictions) and after that time his case file will be destroyed. he also got government funded therapy- which will last “as long as he needs it”.
related fun fact: alberta recently (almost completely) cut funding for assault victims… essentially: there’s no funding for victims. i can’t afford to go to therapy. i can’t afford help, and there’s no funding for me to get it.
this whole thing has just been a huge slap in the face. i “won” the case, but what exactly did i win? extra trauma? it feels like he came out of this on top.
what’s everyone else’s experiences with this crappy system? i feel so alone in this, i’d love to hear any other experiences.

Καλησπέρα στο sub. Απο την αρχή της χρονιάς έχω αρχίσει φροντιστήριο για δεύτερη ξένη γλώσσα. Ο καθηγητής μου είναι ένας εξαίρετος καλοσυνάτος άνθρωπος με όρεξη για την δουλειά του και πολύ καλός σαν καθηγητής. Αλλά υπάρχει ένα θεματάκι, καπνίζει αρκετά και μάλλον βαριά τσιγάρα, ποτέ μέσα στο φροντιστήριο εννοείται βγαίνει έξω όταν θέλει αλλά φέρνει την τσιγαριλα στην τάξη και μετα μυρίζουν και τα ρούχα μου. Δεν ξέρω πως να του το πω γιατί είναι πολύ καλός άνθρωπος και φοβάμαι ότι θα φανεί σαν επίπληξη, τι να κάνω; να αφήσω σημείωμα;τι;

2022.01.26 15:35 TA22000 Nurse didn't let me leave when I changed my mind
Went in for surgery at the height of the pandemic, realized during the pre op prep that I didn't really want this. Got dressed and went to tell the secretary when the OR nurse took my keys from my hand, told me what are you doing?? I tried to explain but she told me I was just stressed, this is why people take pills to relax before etc etc. and physically brought me back to the changing room. While still holding my keys. My phone was locked in the changing room locker, secretary had the key.
I was lucky enough to undo this surgery almost 2 years later and am now realizing how horrible this made me feel. Is this common?? I know I should have advocated for myself and left anyways but I was so ???? disoriented by the fact they kept my phone and keys , felt like I had to do it if I wanted to leave. I'm sorry if this doesn't belong on this sub.

2022.01.26 15:35 thisispoopoopeepee why does this sub fetishise pensions so much rather than 20% match 401ks?
Or 50% match 401ks or some other asburd match for a 401k.
Pensions tie you to a job/industry/union and legally it's not yours. While a 401k is totally and completely yours, can be taken into any job and you can take it overseas as many countries have something similar to a 401k or at least respect the tax protection within such an account (if it's a ROTH 401k).
Some unions even fight for higher 401k matching instead of a pension.
