2022.01.22 14:19 BicylesOnYikesicles Had never played before, now I'm obsessed.

I've been a long term Dragon Age fan. Absolutely obsessed with it. Used to spend days watching lore videos, replaying, etc. In waiting for DA4 I needed to find something to scratch the itch, because replaying just wasn't cutting it anymore.
I game share with a friend and he bought the Legendary Edition. Decided hey, I love Dragon Age so much, I might as well give the other big trilogy from Bioware a shot.
I'm usually not great at shooters. Horrible aim, I always miss, and die a lot. I started getting better the more I played. The stronger my Shepard got, the more excited I got. I was nearing the end of the first game. I had been binge playing for a few hours that day and was anxiously awaiting the climax of the final battle. It was so satisfying to see the end.
I started the second game last night. That opening cutscene... meeting new characters... it's all so new but so exciting to take my Shepard on another adventure.
And I'm asking myself, why didn't I play this sooner? I overlooked this amazing, beautiful trilogy for YEARS because it wasn't the high fantasy RPG world that I normally enjoy in gaming. I could've went my whole life not giving this a chance because I was bad at guns instead of sucking it up and being open minded.
I'm so glad I gave this a chance, and now I'm about to deep dive into this universe the same way I did with Dragon Age. See yall in a few months.

2022.01.22 14:19 schaweniiia My dad's "soulmate" suddenly isn't all that great anymore because she gained 20 pounds

My dad had a girlfriend for four years. He is a bit of a difficult character and tried controlling her daughter. After four years of arguing with the kid, his girlfriend broke it off.
He was devastated for five years. Had flames here and there, but kept them at an arm's length because "they weren't her". According to him, you can only have great love in life and he messed it up. He kept stalking his ex girlfriend's social media and complaining about the great life she was living. He treated other women who fell in love with him as consolation prizes. It irritated the hell out of me, but not my business, so I kept out of it and let him vent for years and years and years.
Recently, this ex girlfriend reached out to him again. Wanted to try again, missed him. Daughter out of the house, so theoretically nothing to separate them. Dad was over the moon. They agreed to go on a date and he was so excited.
Days later, I run into him and ask how it went. He said it was alright but the "spark" had gone. I tried digging deeper until he finally said she had gained 20 pounds and he wasn't into that.
I'm still flabbergasted. I get not wanting to date someone who is unattractive to you, that's not the bit that I'm annoyed with. But he allegedly loved her for 9 YEARS, claiming she was the ONE AND ONLY for him, acting like a wounded animal, and treating women so poorly because of her not being in his life. And now 20 pounds just what - erases all that?
To be clear, this woman is 6'4''/193cm, 20 pounds/9kg barely amounts to anything but slightly thicker thighs.
I didn't say much at the time and I won't either. We are our own worst enemies and this has shown to me that dad just can't help himself - he will shoot himself in the foot whenever the opportunity presents itself. And I'm not here to change that.
Still though. What a pr*ck.

2022.01.22 14:19 BlancheFromage Food for thought: How dysfunctional families predispose us to cults and other harmful groups

I know I talk about this a lot, but sometimes I run across a source that really resonates with me. This is one; it's by corboy, who, though she'd never been in SGI, was a valued member of the Rick Ross forum commentariat, now at culteducation. She had a lot of important insights - see what you think:

IMO, most of us are intelligent but in various ways (such as certain patterns of family upbringing) we have been conditioned to use our intelligence to full capacities in some areas but never to use this same intelligence to examine areas deemed taboo, such as (in my case) the bottle of gin by the toaster.
In my case, I grew up in a family with a lot of strange features. So from childhood I learned to ignore/normalize things such as Mom always keeping a bottle of Gordons Gin by the toaster.
Or...that there was this fellow who lived with us, ostensibly my father's long time cello student.
Turned out 'Jim' was my father's long time, live in male - companion. (How Mom put up with it, I will never know. But it did account for my mysterious feeling of famililariy and comfort when I encountered the gay community, years later. Felt like coming home--and it took 25 years to find out why)
And...a few years ago, I found out that Mom and Dad's claim that they had bought and owned the house was not true. They didnt. 'Jim' and Dad bought the house and then Dad signed his share of the house over to 'Jim'---before Dad married my mother.
So I grew up amid strange stuff and never directed my intelligence towards it.
I put up with the misgivings because I am accustomed to relationships were there is always a buzz of discomfort that must be ignored. For me, thats what normal is.
Rather like having lived so long in a war zone that one becomes used to sleeping on the floor surrounded by sandbags and cannot adjust to an ordinary bed with a good mattress.
This has consequences. Some years later, a professor who taught ethics and critical thinking at our seminary informed us that many students who had trouble with her class were persons who had grown up in scary, abusive situations.
"You all belong at this school and you did not get in here by mistake or as imposters", she told us. "If you find you are having trouble with this subject matter, come see me immediately. Over the years I have found that people who have difficulty with this subject matter have grown up in abusive situations where as small children you dared not observe clearly or reach conscious conclusions about cause and effect because it would have exposed you to conclusions that you would have found too frightening to cope with.
"In such situations, developing sustained, logical thought is difficult--it leads to conclusions about family power structures unbearable to contemplate.
"But one can often cope by developing a sort of divided or scattered attention where you can apply observation and insight that illuminates areas that are not frightening to contemplate while avoiding those areas you dare not perceive directly.
You can come out of such an upbringing with great talent in creative writing, but have difficulty with the kind of evidence based, logical thinking and writing we are doing in this class--because you dared not face evidence while growing up in your families of origin."
No one else ever mentioned what this one professor did. So am passing it on if others find it helpful.
And I am coming out of a situation where I ignored misgivings for 15 years.
Part of what woke me up was discovering the extent to which I could trust my perceptions.
And becoming old enough that I was less and less willing to be talked down to.
Your SGI leaders were always your superiors and yeah, they'd talk down to you any time they wanted, with no consequences or repercussions to themselves.
It also helped me that I spent so much time reading and writing on this message board that I learned a lot about boundary ethics and became able to recognize when things had gone too far in the situation I was in -- and the other party treated my concerns with condescension and then outright sarcasm when I stood my ground.
How often I saw that in SGI!
That was when I realized it was time for me to get out.
Plus, I was paying money and recognized I was no longer getting what I was paying for.
Truly amazing what one can learn by researching public records, such as property titles and marriage licenses. My father turned out to have married not once, but three times. It can be quite interesting to find out who signs as witnesses on a marriage license and even how much time elapses between when the license is issued and when the marriage is officiated. And--was there a wedding, or was it a furtive, hole-in a corner affair? Did they get married in their city and country of residence, or in a country far away? Newpaper announcements? Or not?
Must warn that if you want to do this kind of background research make sure to have excellent social and medical support. I reacted to my family discoveries by getting a six month bout of insomnia that nearly drove me nuts. Needed to get medical help to resume being able to sleep normally.
What I got was conditioning that led me to keep secrets without even being told to do so.
The son of my mothers best friend grew up with similar conditioning and sharing our stories helped us figure this out.
I said to Michael:
"Its amazing that neither of us wound up in organized crime. Both our families were that full of lies and cover-ups and disinformation.'
Long pause.
Michael replied, "I was in organized crime 30 years ago."
Michael: "I was a drug dealer. I was arrested. Went to jail for six months. Nearly got killed. Got out of it after that."
I paused. "Know what? I was in a form of organized crime. I was in a part of the peace movement. We would intentionally cross police lines and get arrested to protest US policy in Central America. I always pled guilty. I had this drive to do penance.
And my therapist actually asked me if my parents had ever done anything for which they could have been arrested. At the time, I thought he was nuts.
Turns out...I internalized their sense of shame and secrecy"
So that is one way one can be conditioned to gravitate towards stuff thats similar to the emotional texture of ones family of origin.
Its not that we want it. Its more like Velcro.
Its the sort of relationship that one is conditioned for. Before one develops a conscious sense of self and before ones is capable of self reflection.
What do you think?
