  1. There better be a twenty dollar bill under that bullshit write in tip…

  2. We (my then girlfriend and I) had just moved into the second level of a three story brownstone in Jersey City a day or two before hurricane Sandy. We became completely surrounded by water. We got to know our downstairs neighbors quickly as they had 3 feet of water in their apartment. We helped them get their stuff out and they rode it out with us on the second floor.

  3. Maybe think about helping those in need and not take a joyride to almost space…

  4. Oh my god thank you for posting this. The best is that the dad is more concerned with him ruining his “awesome shirt” and “the worst of all is you ruined your beautiful shirt” classic dad.

  5. Hi I’m Troy Mclure, you may remember me from other self help films such as “smoke yourself thin” and “get confident stupid!l

  6. Ah wash mah-self with a raaaag ona stick!

  7. Still a running joke with my wife that we will eventually become the rag on a stick couple… whenever we’re being lazy and ask the other to grab a snack this quote isn’t far behind

  8. Remember when trump almost bought the bills just to spite Bon Jovi but then all of Buffalo declared their undying hatred for Bon Jovi? 😂

  9. Child’s Play. We had HBO back in the day and we would do Friday night movie nights where my mom and I would get the pillows and blankets on the floor and all our snacks and I guess I fell asleep and when I woke up HBO was still on and my mom was asleep. I watched it thinking it was a fun movie about a boy and his buddy. I was wrong. Totally traumatized. I suffered from terrible nightmares for years… then the previews from the sequels started airing on tv and I was haunted in broad daylight. They’re super funny now. But that first one was brutal.

  10. Yeah I was recently thinking about how my friends interact with their parents in public (familiar, comfortable, friendly, at ease) VS how I act with my mom in public. I'm either very stiff or fidgeting, staring straight ahead or at the ground, and only respond with a flat affect and monosyllabic answers. It's like I temporarily shut down.

  11. After going no contact a couple years my nmom was getting remarried and in an attempt to get my attendance at the wedding we had a therapy session together. I explained that my life is 100% better without her in it - that I appreciate her doing the best she could in raising me but that I have zero interest in having her be in my life in any capacity. The therapist actually seemed surprised that I was so matter of fact. Said to her that she should be happy for me and respect my boundaries… it was the best feeling of validation ever. I tell this story because both at the start and at the end she asked if she could hug me. Um… no. No you cannot touch me. I can barely tolerate being in the same room as you. It’s incredible how our nervous system just knows.

  12. I was the standard 20 something narcissist who was deathly afraid of commitment and accountability. Thought because I was raised to be selfish and self serving that I was too selfish to be a good partner or parent. Through the support and patience of my amazing now wife, I was able to grow beyond my Peter Pan syndrome. Turns out my narcissist parents were to blame and I had some therapy and work to do on myself in order to end the generational cycles of abuse. Turns out I’m actually much more selfless than I thought. Marriage and parenthood although big life steps, that are not for everyone, have been monumental in forcing me to look inward and evolve my understanding of myself and my relationship with others and the world at large. Self awareness is the first step, then therapy, once you’re all sorted out for yourself, you’ll be surprised at what you feel like you’re capable of and where you’ll find happiness and fulfillment.

  13. So, it didn’t ruin our wedding but it definitely could’ve had we let it…

  14. I have a long time friend who i realized was toxic to my mental and emotional well being. In our group chat with all of our mutual friends, he always goes out of his way to condescend and demean me, always under the guise of “playful ribbing” - then when I defend myself, I end up feeling guilty and shitty. Sigh

  15. Say something that really hurts him and then tell him you were taking a page from his book & joking. And then stop speaking to him.

  16. I did this and he actually acknowledged that his comment was over the line - unfortunately it was after I felt extreme physical anxious discomfort for a few hours after defending myself and then apologizing for being too sensitive. Either way, interesting exchange and I feel like I learned something new about trusting my gut.

  17. Truly the best thing I’ve ever done was go no contact. It’s a new thing to deal with for sure and it’s still worth exploring therapy and working on healing yourself. But this is the first step and I assure you, you will start to feel much better about everything in due time. Expect for there to be some falling out from other relatives and people in your mutual sphere that won’t get it. Expect your parents to continue to try and break down your boundaries. But also know that what we conjure up in our heads out of fear is hardly ever as bad in real life. Good for you. Proud of you. You’re doing the right thing for YOU

  18. After planning our wedding with including nmom she said that our ideas were cheap and tacky so we decided to plan a whole different wedding without her. She of course then boycotted the wedding saying she couldn’t make it. She eventually came around. Wore a white dress to our wedding. Super classy. Not embarrassing at all. This was one of the biggest red flags of her ridiculous narcissistic abuse. It would be another year or two after that before I went no contact. Best decision I’ve ever made.

  19. Forgive me as I’ve bypassed reading any other comments after reading the OP. So apologies if this is redundant... BUT, I feel like sunlight is still the best disinfectant. Keep showing how nonsensical their ideology is and how it keeps failing to deliver. Also worth noting that if all Americans were supplied with dignified employment or any other meaningful life purpose, a real living wage, free healthcare including MENTAL HEALTH CARE (I personally have great employer provided health care and it STILL doesn’t cover any type of mental health care), and felt like they could actually trust government institutions again, then perhaps they wouldn’t be such easy prey for the Qult. What’s even more ironic is that their evil enemies are the ones trying to provide them with these things. Either way, don’t give up on these people as they are turned into easy martyrs when shunned by their family and friends. The key is to keep asking for proof and logical explanations which they cannot provide. When they get defensive ask them what is ACTUALLY bothering them. Most of the Qult is suffering from unprocessed trauma and has had their anger and resentments hijacked into thinking they’re being used for destroying “evil”. This concludes my Q Ted Talk.
