    Bought a new vacuum yesterday. Was so excited and amazed by how much better the suction was than my old one. Literally took a pic of the crud it sucked up and sent to my sister.
    This is my life now. 🤷‍♀️

    I know this feeling all to well. Oh and don’t get me started on finding new cleaning products Lmao

    When 9PM started to feel like midnight 😴

    I feels you! This is so me now. Making it to 10am seems like I stayed up all night. The other night when we went out and got home at 2am and then my internal clock woke me up at 6am. I like crap bc of the lack of sleep.

    The day I buy a suit. Still hasn’t happened but I hope to later this year - so - Stay tuned I guess. If you care - I’m sure you don’t but I’ll post anyway - you’re welcome

    When you do purchase it. Make a suit thread.

    There is a suit thread https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/330384/men-in-suits that desperately needs resurrection, IMHO

    When I stopped caring what other people thought of me.

    Especially co-workers, acquaintances, and random people who I don't care about.
    I think in our youth, we spend too much energy trying to impress or please other people, or convincing yourself that everyone has to be your friend and no one should be allowed to dislike you.

    As an adult, I realized that the only people I want to please are the friends and family who I love.
    Everyone else can like me or not and it doesn't bother me anymore.

    Agreed! But I'd like to add something to this, if you don't mind...

    I also became an adult the day I realized that you shouldn't allow others to slander and bully you either. There's caring about what others think of you, and then there's just criminal, abusive behaviors that need to have proper boundaries established against those harassing you and intentionally trying to bring you down and ruin your life. You can still not care what they think, but you shouldn't just be "nice to everyone no matter what they do to you." I'm sure the people bullying you wouldn't allow such things to happen to themselves, and would definitely care if you said something about them that they didn't agree with or like.

    Just my $0.02. :smiley:

    Both valid points. You set your boundaries.

    This thread popped into my head last night while I was watching the 11pm news.
