2022.01.28 13:23 National_flamingo258 BetterHelp preys on the vulnerable and needs to be shut down.
A bit of background, I've dealt with anxiety and depression from a young age. I've been to psychiatrists, psychologists, stayed in hospital, the whole nine yards. Thankfully I'm in a better place now but recently I've started getting targeted advertisements from BetterHelp and after seeing a multitude of their ads I'm quite frankly disgusted with their business practices.
For those who don't know BetterHelp is an online therapy and counselling service that aims to allow people to contact a therapist from wherever they are. Sounds ethical right? Well then it comes to their advertisements. Their whole ad campaign revolves around triggering those who their algorithm targets as mentally unwell through their search history in the hopes they will download the app. The most common one I've seen is a girl curled up in a ball while panicked breathing and voices murmer in the background, this would be unsettling to anyone nevermind someone who has had this exact experience happen to them in real life. Other ads consist of a woman looking into her phone and seeing a contorted, uglier version of herself while triggering phrases are shown saying stuff like 'you don't matter' and the likes.
For a company that claims to work with real therapists and professionals there is no doubt in my mind that they know exactly what they are doing by creating a greater sense of discomfort amoung those they know are the most likely to respond to it. Quite frankly it's sickening that a corporation that represents positive mental health would stoop so low just for a few extra subscriptions. Especially when mental health treatment is under funded, hard to get and in many countries either expensive or simply not available.
TLDR - BetterHelp preys on the vulnerable and mentally unwell by purposely inducing a sense of panic or discomfort in those who are most likely to respond to triggering imagery.

When guys aren’t paying attention to a movie or tv show at all, and then girls start dancing or getting naked and there eyes are glued to the screen.
I need a man who doesn’t do that

Me and my friends have genuinely been too scared to play The Forest before, but it went on sale, so I gave it out to a few of them and we spent the first few nights repeatedly setting ourselves on fire. Keep posted to watch us do it again, I'm obsessed with this game now

2022.01.28 13:23 rohzy28 How to deal with overbearing parents
Hi alll - I’m in late 20s and an only son and I need suggestions on something
Both my mom and dad are alive and well and financially very supportive but they’re very overbearing and controlling - “ yeh kyun kya woh kyun kya “ and even in my late 20s I feel I don’t have full independence to live how I want
This has impacted my career as well and had it not been for their interference I would’ve been a bit ahead in my career and earning more
The other aspect is that because of their controlling nature I automatically limit myself from some things and I see so many guys and girls doing their own thing . They also mentioned about the type of partner I should have and because of that I automatically called off two relationships just cause it wasn’t an overall fit
At the same time they are living and supportive and by many standards I’m blessed
I know of friends who lost their parent and I know how tough it is with it parents guidance from time to time -the world is ruthless
Need tips on how I can exert my own independence but not be disrespectful
Being only son I have to take care of them in old age as well

2022.01.28 13:23 Perfectscorer10 [Breer] Bears coach Matt Eberflus will interview coaches this weekend. Chicago will be open-minded. But a name to watch—Packers pass-game coordinator Luke Getsy. There's a relationship there, and Eberflus could offer Getsy play-calling, which he won't get in GB. Getsy's been in demand.
