2023.06.08 20:18 stealthtomyself What kind of cat litter do you like the most? Pros and cons?
Hi everyone, I have two senior kitties that are my pride and joy. After using clay for years, I was fed up with pretty much everything about it. It sucks! So I made a switch.
I tried grass seed cat litter- Which worked pretty well and was priced reasonably. I used this for about 2 years exclusively. However, it tracks EVERYWHERE due to how lightweight it is. My cats seem to grab pawfuls of the stuff before they jump out of the box. I would describe the odor control as 'alright'. I eventually got fed up with it after my recent move to a carpeted apartment..
So I tried walnut litter- Which performed amazingly and was low tracking. There was one issue though.. One of my cats has all white feet and belly. He jumps out of the box with 4 dusty brown paws 🙁 So I decided to move on to try other options.
I moved on to pellet pine litter- I tried the non clumping pellets, which despite being cheap, needed much more frequent complete changing so it wasn't any more cost effective in the end. The odor control is also very mediocre. One of my cats has never covered her poo and I don't think she plans on starting anytime soon. My other cat has early kidney disease and pees a LOT. Therefore, the non clumping pellets aren't a good option for me either.
Finally, I tried clumping pellet litter (okocat)- I find this to also have mediocre odor control (though a slight improvement from non clumping) Additionally, the clumping isn't very strong and clumps often break up when I'm scooping the box. With both these issues, the price tag seems exorbitant.
I've considered silica litter, but I've read a lot of things about potential respiratory issues caused by it. My oldest kitty (17m) already gets sneezy from light allergies so I'm really hesitant about trying it.
Paper litter seems to be a worse version of the pine litter in every aspect, and I don't really want to deal with cat pee paper mache all over the box and beyond. I've decided not to waste my time and money trying it.
So, that all being said- I'm at my wits' end trying to find a litter that performs the way I would like and is safe for my kitties.
What matters most to me: - Great odor control (1 cat doesn't cover poo, 1 pees tons) - Doesn't track everywhere (I can't take the litter in the carpets and in the bed.. 🤢)
Please, let me know what type of litter you use, and what you believe the pros and cons to be. I really appreciate you reading and would love to hear any thoughts you have on the matter.

2023.06.08 20:18 AcanthisittaOwn6051 Am I the only person who thought that Shoji and Hachi’s relationship was awkward?
Hello everyone. I just want to share my opinion on Shoji and Hachi’s relationship. I personally did not like them together as a couple and I thought that their relationship was awkward. Throughout their relationship, neither Shoji or Hachi told each other that they loved each other and there was no chemistry or connection between them. The type of personality that Hachi is, she is whimsical, childlike and she also lives in her head a lot, she needs to be with a man who is more of a stronger, practical and level headed personality to complement her more as a partner. What Shoji did was awful and he is a POS for cheating on Hachi with Sachiko and I definitely hated him for that, but I was glad that they broke up. In my opinion, Shoji and Hachi would be better off as friends and not lovers and I never understood why they dated in the first place to begin with. When Shoji and Hachi had a reunion at Jackson’s later on in the story after they broke up, they talked and their conversation was goofy and chilled and this right here says that they will be better as friends. But in my opinion, I didn’t like them as a couple and I am glad they broke up.

2023.06.08 20:17 YepYepNop Fate Dice Math
| || | submitted by YepYepNop to Eldar [link] [comments]
I’ve seen a lot of talk on the Warhammer subs recently about fate dice and the banning of Eldar by budgeaters, and while I do think the ban is very trigger happy and shouldn’t have happened, I want to talk about potentially how strong fate dice are with devastating wounds. I want to take a look at probabilities we can expect to get sixes in the fate dice pool, and whether or not the play patterns being described are reasonable or likely to occur.
Fishing for sixes
First off, how many dice can we expect to get in our initial pool? I’ve seen a lot of people defending the Eldar say it’s two, but once you start rerolling dice, you can push it much higher. To test this, I’m running trails in python and If we choose to reroll the dice just once, we can get at least two 6s 67% of the time. If we choose to reroll until we have 8 dice left, we’ll have two 6s 97% of the time, a virtual guarantee. 8 seems arbitrary, but it is a good place to stop for the sake of this experiment, since going any lower doesn’t significantly increase the chances of getting what we are looking for. But we don’t want two sixes, we want as many as possible. If we stay at 8 as the floor, how do our odds change as we fish for more?
From the graph, we can see that the probabilities start falling very quickly. Once we start reject all pools that don’t have at least as many 6s as we are looking for, We can be reasonably certain to get at least 3 6s, but any higher then that and we are just throwing away dice, as we’re odds on to start with 8 random dice. We can improve this however, once we bring Eldrad in to the mix. Since Eldrad allows us to start with 15 fate dice rather then 12, we not only get more rerolls, but higher quality ones as well:
From the above, we can be fairly confident that rerolling all pools without 4 6s in the will get us 3 sixes with near certainty, and we can be reasonably confident in fishing for 4 of them. For the sake of argument, we’ll say that a reasonable strategy for maximising 6s is to run Eldran and reroll the fate dice pool and you can expect to get 4 6s about 75% of the time.
Fate Dice in Game
Now we have our four 6s, How do they play in game? The biggest issue a lot of people are hyper focused on is the profile of the D-cannon. With devastating wounds and D6+2 damage, the worry is that you can dump 6s into the wound and damage rolls to pump out mortal wounds with indirect fire into anything that come in range. Even if we just spend 6s on the wound roll, and assume that we’ll being firing indirectly, that’s 8.25 mortal wounds on average every time it fires, which is a fair amount. If we have a Farseer and a guardian squad on an objective with it to generate free 6s and extra dice, they can blow up pretty much anything that gets in range, and spend 6s as needed to delete pretty much anything.
6s aren’t free though. As we established earlier, there’s only a 75% we get 4 in our pool, which isn't a lot, or a guarentee. You can’t just spam out mortal wounds right? You might be aware of the exhibition match between Eldar and imperial guard that showed of their rules last week. The Eldar player mentioned that the guard player tried to move a unit in range of his fire prism, but after it was explained they could overwatch, sub in a natural 6 and flip another dice to a 6 with the near by Farseer, they were odds on to blow up the unit. Naturally, the guard player decided to move somewhere else, but the Eldar player mentioned they never actually intended to fire the overwatch, even if they had moved in range.
Threat of activation is a very powerful thing. If you have a reasonable amount of 6s in your pool, the game can become warped around units with profiles like the D-cannon. Lets not forget the wraithguard, their war construct ability means with a few 6s your opponent can’t move within 16 inches and shoot them without getting deleted in turn if you have fate dice to invest. However, there’s also a burden on the Eldar player to use the dice responsibly. Its Ultimately going to come down to how expensive farseers are I think. Two with a squad of guardians each
- Interaction with devastating wounds/overwatch is very strong.
- If you prioritise 6s, you can reasonably expect 3 6s in your starting pool, can almost gaurentee it by taking Eldran.
- Fate Dice are strongest in your pool as they can threaten any number of things, once spent your army is a lot less threatening. Farseers will be likely be auto includes regardless of cost.
- Managing your dice correctly will make or break the army. 3/4 + your Farseers in your starting pool gives you a very large margin of error, but is by no means free. They're strongest when used in multiples, which you can;t do with impunity.
2023.06.08 20:17 giraffesinhats John 4:1-45 (Thursday, June 8)
John 4:1-45 (HCSB)
Jesus and the Samaritan Woman
4 When Jesus[a] knew that the Pharisees heard He was making and baptizing more disciples than John 2 (though Jesus Himself was not baptizing, but His disciples were), 3 He left Judea and went again to Galilee. 4 He had to travel through Samaria, 5 so He came to a town of Samaria called Sychar near the property[b] that Jacob had given his son Joseph. 6 Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, worn out from His journey, sat down at the well. It was about six in the evening.[c]
7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water.
“Give Me a drink,” Jesus said to her, 8 for His disciples had gone into town to buy food.
9 “How is it that You, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” she asked Him. For Jews do not associate with[d] Samaritans.[e]
10 Jesus answered, “If you knew the gift of God, and who is saying to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would ask Him, and He would give you living water.”
11 “Sir,” said the woman, “You don’t even have a bucket, and the well is deep. So where do You get this ‘living water’? 12 You aren’t greater than our father Jacob, are You? He gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did his sons and livestock.”
13 Jesus said, “Everyone who drinks from this water will get thirsty again. 14 But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again—ever! In fact, the water I will give him will become a well[f] of water springing up within him for eternal life.”
15 “Sir,” the woman said to Him, “give me this water so I won’t get thirsty and come here to draw water.”
16 “Go call your husband,” He told her, “and come back here.”
17 “I don’t have a husband,” she answered.
“You have correctly said, ‘I don’t have a husband,’” Jesus said. 18 “For you’ve had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have said is true.”
19 “Sir,” the woman replied, “I see that You are a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain,[g] yet you Jews say that the place to worship is in Jerusalem.”
21 Jesus told her, “Believe Me, woman, an hour is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans[h] worship what you do not know. We worship what we do know, because salvation is from the Jews. 23 But an hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. Yes, the Father wants such people to worship Him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
25 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah[i] is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will explain everything to us.”
26 “I am He,” Jesus told her, “the One speaking to you.”
The Ripened Harvest
27 Just then His disciples arrived, and they were amazed that He was talking with a woman. Yet no one said, “What do You want?” or “Why are You talking with her?”
28 Then the woman left her water jar, went into town, and told the men, 29 “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could this be the Messiah?” 30 They left the town and made their way to Him.
31 In the meantime the disciples kept urging Him, “Rabbi, eat something.”
32 But He said, “I have food to eat that you don’t know about.”
33 The disciples said to one another, “Could someone have brought Him something to eat?”
34 “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work,” Jesus told them. 35 “Don’t you say, ‘There are still four more months, then comes the harvest’? Listen to what I’m telling you: Open[j] your eyes and look at the fields, for they are ready[k] for harvest. 36 The reaper is already receiving pay and gathering fruit for eternal life, so the sower and reaper can rejoice together. 37 For in this case the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap what you didn’t labor for; others have labored, and you have benefited from[l] their labor.”
The Savior of the World
39 Now many Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of what the woman said[m] when she testified, “He told me everything I ever did.” 40 Therefore, when the Samaritans came to Him, they asked Him to stay with them, and He stayed there two days. 41 Many more believed because of what He said.[n] 42 And they told the woman, “We no longer believe because of what you said, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this really is the Savior of the world.”[o]
A Galilean Welcome
43 After two days He left there for Galilee. 44 Jesus Himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country. 45 When they entered Galilee, the Galileans welcomed Him because they had seen everything He did in Jerusalem during the festival. For they also had gone to the festival.
This is a long passage and there is alot to digest here. One big point that I don't think I caught onto before was verse 6. It really shows his full humanity which is immediately transitioned into his deity in the following verses. Additionally, what I found interesting was that the Samaritan woman leaves and she immediately goes to tell the men in the town what happened. She didn't go to the women to gossip and share, she immediately went to the decision makers of the time and even more so amazing was they believed her as shown in verse 42. The believed her and their belief was affirmed after meeting Jesus. In Luke 24:11 Mary was reporting the resurrection and the disciples did not believe them. This passage shows great faith not only in the Samaritan woman but in the Samaritan men as well and the willingness to follow Him.
Q1: What does it look like for us to become a well of the Spirit for others?
Q2: How do you interpret verses 22 and 23? Is Jesus condemning the Samaritan practices and forgiving at the same time?
Q3: What does it mean to worship in Spirt and Truth?
Q4: Do you find yourself to be a sower or a reaper?
Q5: This one is mostly rhetorical and only provide a response if you feel led to it. The Samaritans were essentially shunned by the Jewish people and would intentionally take the long way to avoid Samaria, yet Jesus stayed with them two days. How are we spending time with those that society or even Christianity typically shuns?

2023.06.08 20:17 LIS1050010 Guide: How many acres do you need for a hobby farm or homestead?
If you take on too much land you’ll stretch yourself (and your wallet) too thin, but if you take on too little you could end up with a failing farm fast.
For aspiring self-reliant homesteaders or hobby farmers, figuring out just the right amount of acreage is crucial.
For answers to this foundational question, we turned to successful and well-known homesteader, small-scale farmer, educator and farming consultant Ben Godfrey of Sand Creek Farm
in Cameron, TX.
Ben and his wife Alysha started out as small-scale hobby farmers and now run a successful, full-time 169-acre sustainable farm and homestead. Today, Ben shares his story, advice and insights on how you can get started on your hobby farming journey.
A gradual shift from city slickers to suburban equestrians, then hobby farmers, then professionals
Like most families, the Godfreys didn’t begin their life together as homesteaders.
Ben (a country boy), his wife Alysha (a city girl) and their growing family gradually migrated from suburbia to full-time farming over the course of many years
. Ben explains:
“My wife was a city girl, so I kept wanting to bring her out to the country. I started with our first house in a little subdivision, then I drew her out to a rural subdivision with about 3 acres so she could have her horses there, then I lured her out to a bigger house on around 20 acres.”
As the family fell in love with hobby farming and country life, they quickly expanded to 40 acres. All the while Ben was still running a successful construction company in town.
Ben says jokingly, “The 20 acres was really just to entice my wife in the beginning, but I had plans to purchase the 20 adjoining acres as well.”
On their 40 acres they had a small dairy and horses; grew their own produce and livestock; and had an orchard. It worked for them and allowed Ben to continue his career in construction, until…
Trading in a lucrative construction business to live off the land
Like most hobby farmers, Ben’s “real job” as owner of a construction company supported the family and afforded them a comfortable living.
Though Ben and Alysha were more than capable of straddling both worlds, it didn’t come without a price.
“We’d been evolving over to farming and I just enjoyed it much more,” Ben explains. “Even though the income was a lot better in construction, it caused a lot of stress and the quality of life was a lot better in farming.
“Plus in construction I was gone from the farm and my family a lot and I really wanted to be closer to my family. Now every day, with the exception of deliveries, I’m at home with them.”
Ben and Alysha now have five girls, ages 3 to 16, who help them out on the homestead.
How the Godfreys tackled the sustainable farming learning curve (with help from the Amish)
Though Ben has a degree in Agricultural Development from Texas A&M, plus some previous hobby farm experience, the Godfreys knew they still had a lot to learn about how to manage a sustainable farm and homestead.
“The type of agriculture they teach at Texas A&M is not at all like what we do here," Ben says. "We’re using agriculture that was probably taught at A&M 100 years ago, before chemicals were so prevalent. It is a lot more sustainable.”
So how did they figure out how to start their sustainable farm?
“When we bought the 40-acre hobby farm it was a blank canvas. It was basically a hay field with just a little bit of woods. We wanted to build a home, our barns, facilities and everything for a homestead. So I told my wife I thought we should visit the Amish to see how they do it.”
His wife agreed, and Ben quickly scheduled a business trip up to Ohio with the main goal of observing the Amish. He connected with an Amish family there, and they invited Ben to bring his whole family to work and learn from them on their farms.
“I was just so impressed by the quality of their children. And from there, we went from really 'a city lifestyle while living in the country,' to a much simpler lifestyle doing a lot more as a family.”
It was through their work with the Amish that they discovered the magic of using draft horses for farming.
“After our first visit, we returned to Ohio in October and bought a team of horses and all the equipment,” Ben recalls. “We harnessed up the two horses right there at the sale barn and drove them 2 ½ miles down the road to our friends’ farm…and it was just as peaceful as can be. From then on I was hooked.”
Ben and Alysha have remained close with their Amish friends for the past 13 years, and still return to Ohio to visit and purchase horses and equipment.
To date, they’ve brought more than 200 horses from Ohio to Texas.
How cashing in on their first hobby farm allowed them to “Go Big”
Though they loved their hobby farm, the Godfreys dreamed of having enough land to start up a larger dairy and sustainable farming business.
So, when the opportunity arose to sell their homestead (for a healthy profit) in 2007, they jumped on it and used that income to buy a bigger farm in a more rural area.
That bigger farm was 169 acres, and would soon be known by the entire sustainable farming industry as Sand Creek Farm.
What a 169 acre sustainable farm and homestead looks like
The Godfreys have diversified their land beautifully. They offer raw milk and other dairy products (theirs was one of the first farms in Texas to get a raw for retail channel license), grass-fed beef, pork, broiler chickens and a limited number of eggs. Their farm is almost entirely horse-powered
using techniques and equipment acquired from their Amish friends, plus a few tricks Ben’s picked up online.
The pace, peacefulness, connection and environmental benefits of using horses falls right in line with their commitment to sustainability. As for acreage and farm design
, their four aquaponic greenhouses take up about 1 acre, 5-10 acres are dedicated to produce cultivation annually and all the rest is pasture for rotational grazing.
The farm is not “certified organic” though they raise all their products using organic principles. Ben explains:
“I’ve had the certification paperwork on my desk but I just haven’t seen the value in doing it. The relationship with your customer is the biggest deal. The only reason you’d need a certification is if you’re not selling direct to your customer. But if the customer is inspecting your farm themselves then you don’t really need it.”
They also offer sustainably grown food products from other farms, like pure Vermont Maple Syrup, raw honey, soaps and wholesome breads.
Historically, the majority of their business has come from dairy, which lead customers to the farm’s other offerings, such as their CSA program.
At present, Sand Creek Farm is transitioning.
“Dairy is still a major key, but I would say ideally we’d like to be 50% aquaponics, 25% dairy and 25% field vegetables, farm-stays and on-site training,” Ben explained.
Even with their success and reputation, the Godfreys aren’t afraid to embrace change and shift their business model as they continue to learn and grow.
40-169 acres works for the Godfreys, but what about beginner homesteaders and hobby farmers?
Ben gave some serious thought to our original question, “How much acreage do you need to start a hobby farm or homestead?” and offered this advice:
“If you were going to have a homestead with 1-2 horses, a family cow, and your gardens, I’d want 10 acres of pasture, 2 acres for produce, maybe a one-acre orchard and the rest of it would be buildings. So 15 acres could hold most of what you want to do
The Godfreys opted for larger pieces of land for their homesteads because they have five children and usually keep 7-8 horses in addition to their dairy cows. All this requires more pasture. Ben also offers this advice to aspiring homesteaders with “real jobs” on farm location
“I wouldn’t recommend moving way outside the city limits. About 20-30 minutes outside civilization is good, but 45 minutes and up feels a little far. Unless you can telecommute, then being further out is great.”
Learn to farm, hobby farm or homestead firsthand from the Godfreys
Educating on sustainable farming is a HUGE piece of the Godfrey success puzzle. Here’s how you can tap their knowledge basin and learn from the best:
They offer seasonal internship programs at the farm that usually last 3-6 months, and they also hold on-site classes for those who can’t leave their full-time job to intern. The Godfreys also offer consulting services and advice
on everything from choosing your niche and the best location for your farm, to budgeting, planning, design, marketing, aquaponics and using draft horses.
The BEST first step you should take
Ben offered one last bit of advice on what all aspiring homesteaders or hobby farmers should do right now before
investing in land:
“If I were them, I would invest all of your time and money now in education and information. A library of books, experience—go work on a farm, go do a farm stay somewhere and try to get as much experience as possible before you buy the land. You’ll have a much more successful enterprise if you know what you’re getting into beforehand.”

2023.06.08 20:16 Internal-Ball7535 Hands only CPR on drowning child
Last week when we were on vacation my 4 year old son managed to get out our front condo door and through the pool latch gate (of which we since found out was broken) and into the pool all while I was in the bathroom for just 2 minutes.
I found him face down at the bottom of the deep end. I jumped in, grabbed his lifeless body, and put him on the pool deck. I got out and immediately started chest compressions. This is where my question lies.
I’m starting nursing school this fall, so I took the mandatory CPR class a few weeks ago.
In the moment, nearly all my training went out the window as I was in a panic. I realize I only performed hands-only CPR on him, followed by patting his back where after 2 rounds, he vomited up a lot of water and his lunch, where his pulse returned and he began to regain consciousness and make noises. From there an ambulance came and he has fully recovered.
I can’t stop going over this in my head- why didn’t I do rescue breaths? And how did my CPR work when it was only compressions?
I know in my training we learned hands-only CPR is becoming more commonly used but I believe drowning victims this is different since they need that oxygen.
If I messed it up, how did it work? Am I right about the protocol of 30:2 compressions to breaths?
Thank you. This has been killing me

2023.06.08 20:16 Jealous_Campaign_328 i feel like i did blasphemed the holy spirit!! YOU MUST READ IT!
IT WAS 8 MONTHS AGO. i saw some texts between me and my friend. my friend is close to witch or something. so we were talking about religion and the witches. my friend said blasphemy thing, she said about jesus that shouldn't said it. i was believing this thing, she told me and i...i think i did believe it. but i felt like it was wrong. we hadn't contact for months. i have close relationship with jesus, i felt so bad everytime i did committed the sins, i was worrying that i did blasphemy past few days, i was crying, i was praying, i begged god, i felt his love, his goodness but i heard, if you did blasphemy your heart is hardened and you don't feel like you want to repent. i had battle with enemy past few days and when i'm feeling good enemy attacks me. this conversation came up to me, i was worrying still. fear won't leave me. i didn't wanted to saw those conversation but i opened my messages. I ALMOST CONFIRMED WHAT SHE SAID. but at this time i didn't knew what blasphemy was, if i knew i would never. after i saw those messages, my body temperature raised up. i felt like i was already in hell, i felt like i was already doomed. i feel like my heart hardened, i feel like i can't feel guilty, it was something different feeling. i was doomed. i already thought about myself in hell for eternity. i was punching my heart, i was pulling my hair, i've already imagined my self in hell. it drives me crazy. when i satrted close relationshp with god enemy attacked me everyday, but when i ignored their intrusive thoughts about blasphemy i think they attacked me more. i'm calm right now, but please tell me. if i did blasphemy, why did i felt bad when i sinned? why did felt his love? why did i felt grateful for him? please tell me! please! please! don't leave questioned here. i'm shaking imagining this.

2023.06.08 20:16 Glass_Quantity_499 Horus Heresy TPS Game.
It seems to me like a wasted potential that Games Workshop didn't make a game in the style of Battlefront II ! Like a Third person shooter, with huge maps, vehicles ( on land & in the skies), various game mods. Imagine for a minute how epic that would be.
I mean that's entirely possible to do it properly :
- You have 2 sides Loyalist vs Renegades.
- Different game mods : Supremacy ( 40vs40 huge battle maps with vehicles) + Skirmish ( 20vs20 no vehicles and smaller maps) + Duels ( Only the Named Characters of the Horus Heresy, not all of them of course but 1 by Legion for this game mod) + Void battles ( Void engagements with Space ships or only escort vessels.)
- Warzones : This would be how you choose your Astartes Legion. For example you want to play Ultramarines vs Word Bearers in a 40vs40, then you pick Supremacy and the Warzone where these two legions fought - Calth.
- Regular classes : You can access at the beginning of the Match to 4 Classes ( Tactical with bolter or chainsaw depending how you equip him, The Scout with a sniper or shotgun, the devastator with heavy bolter, lascannon, plasma ect.. and the Praetor, who is a front line support and an ally buffer).
-Reinforcements (cost 500pts - 1000pts): After killing enemies or capturing points you will gather points, points you can spend to unlock different more powerful and unique classes. These classes change depending on the warzone of course and what Legion you pick. For example Gal Vorbak and Dark apostle for the Word Bearers, Noise marines for the Emperor's Children or Justaerin Terminator squad for the Sons of Horus.
-Named Characters (1500pts - 2000pts): Same idea as for the Reinforcements, you spend points to play them on the battlefield but it can't be two same characters at the same time on the battlefield. Playing a Primarch cost 2000pts, it's a lot, you are powerful but not invincible. For example you can't charge ahead in the enemy team without being hard focus, plus, your are a big fellow and can hardly go unnoticed.
- In Game Progression : Every Classes (Regular, Reinforcements or Named Characters) have levels, a experience bar and Tactics. They are basically talents, with different effects that can enhance your abilities, hit points ect.. or change your abilities by others. At each level you will be granted Battle Tactics points that you can spend on the Tactics to improve their effects (4 stages = Basic, Rare, Epic, Legendary), only 3 Tactics can be equipped per classes/characters. The more you play a class or character, the more you win games, kill opponents or perform actions such as capturing strategic points or defend them the more you gain Xp.

If you’re like just about everyone else on the planet who saw Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in 2018 and loved it, you’ve probably been waiting for the sequel. You won’t be waiting long, as Transformers Rise of the Beasts is finally coming out.
After a grueling five-year-long wait, Marvel fans everywhere will finally be able to return to the animated multiverse with Transformers Rise of the Beasts.

Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait for it to become available to rent or purchase on digital platforms like Amazon, Vudu, YouTube or Apple, or become available to stream on Disney+.
Is Transformers Rise of the Beasts coming to Netflix?
Yes, Transformers Rise of the Beasts is coming to Netflix approximately in December 2023.
In 2021, Sony and Netflix signed a five-year deal that gave the latter exclusive first-pay-window U.S. streaming rights for Sony Pictures titles after their theatrical and home entertainment windows. Fans can expect to watch Transformers Rise of the Beasts on Netflix six months after the film’s theatrical release, thus in December 2023. The date seems reasonable considering that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse dropped on Netflix on June 26, 2019, six months after its U.S. release on December 14, 2018. The pay-one window usually begins about nine months after a film’s theatrical release, but it might start earlier in particular cases.
This post will be updated once there is a 100% officially confirmed Transformers Rise of the Beasts Netflix release date.
When Will Transformers Rise of the Beasts Be Available On Netflix?
Regarding when the film will be available on Netflix, the answer is less definitive. The first film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, began streaming six months after its theatrical release. Based on this, it is safe to assume Transformers Rise of the Beasts will see a similar gap between its cinematic and streaming releases. Given the film's theatrical release of June 2, 2023, Transformers Rise of the Beasts will likely begin streaming on Netflix in December 2023.
This tracks with some of Sony's bigger releases of 2022. Films like Uncharted and Bullet Train were released on Netflix six and five months respectively after their release in theaters. Of course, Transformers Rise of the Beasts could have other elements that see it release before or after this tentative six-month period, such as underperforming or exceeding expectations at the box office. Although, based on Sony's track record - including that of the first film - Transformers Rise of the Beasts can be expected on Netflix in the winter of 2023, likely December for a holiday release.
Is Transformers Rise of the Beasts coming to Disney Plus?
Yes, Transformers Rise of the Beasts is also coming to Disney Plus approximately in 2025.
Once the pay-one window runs its time and Netflix’s exclusive rights expire, Transformers Rise of the Beasts will be available on Disney Plus. The pay-one window might last as long as 18 months, which means it will be a while before Disney Plus subscribers can watch the much-anticipated sequel. Unlike in other countries, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse isn’t yet available on the Disney-owned streamer in the U.S.
American fans will have to wait until 2024 to watch Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and at least until 2025 for its sequel. We will update this post once there is an official Transformers Rise of the Beasts Disney Plus release date.
Transformers Rise of the Beasts comes from a joint effort of directors Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson. The movie will swing into theaters on June 2, featuring the return of Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy, and Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker, among others.
Will Transformers Rise of the Beasts Be On HBO Max?
No, Transformers Rise of the Beasts will not be on HBO Max since it’s not a Universal Pictures movie. Last year, the company released its films in theaters and on the streamer on the same day. However, they now allow a 45-day window between the theatrical release and the streaming release.
Is Transformers Rise of the Beasts Available On Hulu?
Viewers are saying that they want to view the new animation movie Transformers Rise of the Beasts on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. It will be exclusive to the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.

2023.06.08 20:16 sraym22 Rammstein fan Shelby Lynn from Ballymena alleges she was groomed for sex
| || |
A woman from Northern Ireland has told the BBC she was recruited and "groomed" for sex with the lead singer of the German heavy metal band Rammstein. Shelby Lynn, who also claims her drink was spiked at a concert in Vilnius in May, first made the claims on social media. Her allegations triggered a wave of other sexual misconduct allegations against the band's frontman Till Lindemann. The band have denied the claims. A spokesman for Rammstein told the BBC an internal investigation was under way with the first results expected early next week. The band, well known for its flamboyant shows and controversial lyrics, has been engulfed by scandal in recent weeks as a growing number of women claim that they were recruited for sex during concerts. 'Row zero' Like Ms Lynn, some suspect they were pre-selected on social media by a Russian woman, believed to have been a "recruiter" for Mr Lindemann, who invited them to parties before and after the show. She also gave them access to a restricted area directly in front of the stage, known as "Row Zero". Ms Lynn, who is 24 and from Ballymena in County Antrim, told the BBC that when she arrived at the venue a man named Joe asked her and other young women to line up. She said: "He started filming... about four girls, including myself. He got very close to our faces." submitted by sraym22 to northernireland [link] [comments]
She claimed that shortly afterwards he picked her and several other girls to attend a pre-concert party, where she was given alcohol and told Till Lindemann would like to meet her during a brief intermission once the concert began. "I said: 'Why? Why me? Is this some sort of a sex thing?' [He replied:] 'No, no, no, nothing like that, nothing like that at all. Till's the perfect gentleman.'" Ms Lynn said she was ushered into a small room underneath the stage. "As soon as Joe opens the curtains my stomach drops - this is bad, this is a sex thing absolutely. "This room was no bigger than a Primark dressing room - like teeny tiny, dark black - you could maybe fit four or five people in it. "Till comes in and I immediately say: 'Till, if you're here for sex. I'm not doing that.'" The singer, she said, reacted angrily and left. 'Organised system' Ms Lynn, who has emphasised on social media she wasn't sexually assaulted, said her memory of the evening was "blurry" and she recalls feeling nauseous and vomiting at a party after the concert. She believes her drink was spiked and that she was the victim of an "organised system of funnelling girls". "I was groomed, 100 percent, no doubt in my mind. I was groomed for sex," she said. Rammstein initially reacted to her claims last month by releasing a statement online in which the band fully denied them. On Saturday, after other women came forward with allegations, the band published another statement, saying that they took the accusations extremely seriously. They condemned any kind of assault but asked their fans not to "pre-judge" them. A spokesman for the band has subsequently told the BBC that it is now investigating the claims and interviewing staff and crew as part of the enquiry. Rammstein is currently performing several concerts in Germany. After demands from several politicians, including the German families minister, Wednesday's show in Munich went ahead with no "Row Zero". There were specialist "awareness teams" on hand to assist anyone in a vulnerable position. The spokesman added that the band had severed contact with the Russian woman accused of helping to select women for "Row Zero". They said private after-show parties with Till Lindemann had been cancelled.
2023.06.08 20:15 helenalucia I hold resentment towards my boyfriend for ruining my graduation and I’m not sure what to do next.
I (f18) hold resentment for my (18m) boyfriend. I just graduated high school two days ago, and I feel as if he ruined it. (Backstory) for those who don’t know, you must have an invitation ticket to attend the ceremony, and my high school gave out 10 tickets per graduate since our graduating class was really small. We received our tickets two days prior graduation so we had time to give them out to the people we planned on inviting. Since my family is relatively small and my dad was the only family member that was able to come, I had 9 tickets left. I planned on inviting my boyfriend and his cousin that I’m close with, as well as his mom. Everyone said they were able to attend. I gave him an extra ticket because I wanted his niece to attend, and as far as I was aware of, she was able to come.
I explicitly told my boyfriend that I did not want his sister (niece’s mom) or her boyfriend (niece’s dad) coming, because they’re known to cause issues and their relationship is toxic (that’s a whole other story) and I didn’t want any issues to arise on my big day. He completely understood and seemed to respect my wishes. Okay no issue, right? On the day of graduation, the doors opened 45 minutes prior to the ceremony starting. I told everyone to come as soon as they can because seats were going to fill up fast. They all got there early and were sitting in the front row, and I noticed his mom and niece weren’t there, but his sister and her boyfriend were.
I texted my boyfriend asking why they were there despite me telling him numerous times in person and over text I did not want them coming, and he responded with “Niece and mom couldn’t make it so I gave them the tickets” “it’s not a big deal”. I was visibly very upset, but I couldn’t say anything because the ceremony was about to start. My dad was on the far left, my boyfriend was next to him on the right, his sister and her boyfriend were next to him, and his cousins were in the far right side. (Please keep in mind that his mother and his niece did not make it and that no one told me anything until the ceremony started) His sister and her boyfriend rudely got up and left in the middle of the ceremony and never came back.
After the ceremony was over, I asked my boyfriend where they went. He said they claimed they had to “go to the bathroom” and never came back. At this point I was enraged, however I still had to bite my tongue because my dad wanted to take pictures. Fast forward an hour, I still haven’t received any texts from his mother on why she couldn’t make it, and I never received any text from his sister on why they left early (despite them not being invited in the first place, not to mention they didn’t say “happy graduation” to me or anything) everyone left, but I invited my boyfriend to come along to get a celebratory dinner with my dad and I.
After we dropped him off at his house, my dad told me that his sister and her boyfriend did not say one word to him, or even look at him. (Keep in mind they were only one seat away from my dad.) I was very shocked and hurt, because not only was I disrespected but my dad was too. I confronted my boyfriend with a very long and thorough text explaining that he had absolutely zero right handing out those tickets especially to people I explicitly said I don’t want coming, and that their actions were an insult to injury. He agreed and said what they did was wrong and apologized on their behalf, but he kept dodging his accountability. I called him out on it and he did end up apologizing for what he did, but he did it in a tone that made it not seem as big of a deal as it was, and ended the apology with “it won’t happen again”.
I feel incredibly fucked over and disrespected. It is two days post-graduation and I still have yet to receive a text from my boyfriend’s sister or anything, and I haven’t texted my boyfriend since yesterday morning. This isn’t the first time he’s pulled something like this, on my 18th birthday I cried for two days straight because of him and couldn’t bare to leave the house (another story for another time)
I know the obvious answer it to break up with him, but it’s not that easy because I don’t want my graduation day to be a tainted memory with a breakup. Am I overreacting? Please help.

2023.06.08 20:15 ExchangeLive Fake friend ?
Recently I have been living in this country for a year and a half to study abroad. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to make any genuine friends during my time here. While I know a lot of people, they are more like acquaintances or colleagues whom I talk to and never hang out with casually outside of university. However, there are two individuals whom I consider closer friends. One of them, who is a refugee, confuses me a lot. Despite looking like a local and speaking the same language, there are some aspects of his behavior that make me question his character as a friend.
Firstly, as a Muslim spending Ramadan alone in a foreign country, I felt lonely breaking my fast every night by myself. It was disheartening that this friend never invited me to join his family for iftar. While I understand that he is not obligated to invite me, I would have extended an invitation if our roles were reversed. Back home, my family always hosts gatherings during this time, so it was sad to realize that someone I considered close didn't even bother asking me to break my fast with him.
Secondly, although this person has many friends from this country, whenever we come across them, he never introduces me and acts as if I'm not there. He converses with them in their language, even though they are capable of speaking English, creating an awkward situation. To avoid the discomfort, I pretend to be busy or occupied with something else.
Lastly, I've noticed that this friend is a hypocrite. He told me that he approaches girls in a similar manner to how I do, with clear intentions. However, during one hangout, a group of girls approached him, and he greeted them warmly with hugs and kisses on the cheek. He completely ignored my presence and didn't introduce me to them. After they left, he expressed his disdain for Polish girls, claiming that it contradicted his religious values. However, shortly after, I saw him hugging and caressing a girl from behind, while she seemed to enjoy it. I chose to walk by as if I hadn't noticed to avoid making them uncomfortable.
Given these observations, I am starting to question if this person is genuine or if he is putting on a facade. I wonder if I am overreacting or if I should be cautious about building a closer relationship with him.

2023.06.08 20:15 MasterpieceNew6549 My gf(21f) and I(24m) have opposing views on religion. Can the relationship work?
I've been trying to work this out with my gf, but I would love to hear the perspective of others who have been in similar situations. We have been together for almost 2 years. Every aspect of our relationship is virtually perfect as far as how we feel about each other. We have common values, goals, and see the world in a similar way. The only massive discrepancy is our differing views on religion. We were raised in extremely different households. She comes from a rather traditional, conservative, christian family. My parents are quite the opposite. I was never forced to practice any religion or follow a certain way of thinking. They let me think for myself and formulate my own views on such topics. It was quite clear when we first started talking that she was greatly influenced by her parents. She let me know that she practices religion and that god is a big part of her life. This is typically a red flag for me since I am agnostic and know that I do not want religion to be a part of my life, and I will also not force religion onto my children. However, I decided to continue on with the relationship since like I said, every other aspect of it was perfect. Throughout our relationship, it started to seem as though she grew more and more distant from her religion. I would attribute that to her learning to think more for herself and to not be so easily influenced by others. I have expressed to her how I feel regarding the topic, but never once told her that she needs to agree with me. She has expressed to me that she is still confused about how she feels and still needs to explore that aspect of herself. I am afraid this is her way of saying that she doesn't want to upset me by telling me how she actually feels. She has also very recently said that she feels god in her life, so I guess that I am worried it might become a larger part of her life which I think may affect the relationship long term. Like I said besides this every aspect of the relationship is amazing. What sort of questions should I be asking her to see if it can work in the future or not? I have heard people say religion is something that needs to be 100% agreed on, and others have said it does not matter as much. tl;dr Gf and I have opposing views on religion. Can the relationship work long term?

2023.06.08 20:15 Seb_foulger Destiny's take on bulimia necessitating delusion
I'm kind of surprised by Destiny's take when talking with Farha about trans issues relating to bulimia and delusion. I guess I should say first that it wasn't a "take" as such since he was just saying it's hard to wrap his head around it, but I definitely don't agree that if you have bulimia you must have some delusion.
The more you look at something the more you become accustomed to the minute details involved and are going to be more likely to fixate on these small issues. Just because something a bulimic person sees as a flaw is not seen by others, that doesn't mean what they are seeing isn't there, it just means they are more used to seeing themself.
It's just like when you first meet a pair of twins and you can't tell them apart, but after spending some time with them it becomes easy.
It would even seem more likely to me that this is the case (although I have no actual evidence to support it just a hunch) in the sense that I think the disease is potentially more related to a fixation on minute details rather than a delusion altogether.

2023.06.08 20:14 miyagranger How to get over someone who finds it hard to be vulnerable and would rather just end the relationship
So this girl and i dated for around 6 months. Honestly, it was pretty rough. On our third month of dating, that’s when our attachment styles started showing up. I am disorganized and she is avoidant. We would regularly get into a fight because i started to want to see her more often and she said that it overwhelmed and pressured her. I wanted to see her at least once a week, but she only wanted to meet like twice a month.
Our biggest problems were my trust issues and her being emotionally distant at times. I tried to break things off with her, but she compromised. We started seeing each other every week and i was happy with it. On our 6th month together, we decided to put a label on our relationship. But before that, we had a lot of back and forth discussions and arguments.
Everything was going great and we weren’t fighting anymore. But after a few weeks, she had a mental breakdown and broke up with me all of a sudden. She was going through a lot, suffering from depression and and anxiety especially when she quit her job. Although i know that all her previous relationships didn’t last for more than a few months, this still came as a shock to me. She said that she loves me and she tried her best, but she’s emotionally unable to be in a relationship and that i deserve better. I tried to fix things with her, but she didn’t want it. She said that she will only weigh me down. She just completely shut down. I’m still trying to wrap my head around what happened. I still wonder what i could’ve done to make things better.
I reached out to her several days after our breakup. She’s said that she still feels lost and she doesn’t know what to say to me. And the last time i reached out, she snapped at me and then apologized for doing so. It’s almost a month now since we broke up. I want to check up on her, but it i don’t know if she wants me to. Her birthday is coming up and i don’t know if should message her or not. How do i deal with this without hurting her and myself?

2023.06.08 20:14 graneflatsis WeirdWheels Will Be Going Private From June 12-14th To Join The Protest Against Reddit's API Changes
For information on what this is all about please check out u/SarahAGilbert
's post in AskHistorians
as it is far better than what I could do. https://www.reddit.com/AskHistorians/comments/142w159/askhistorians_and_uncertainty_surrounding_the Quoted without links:
On April 18, 2023, Reddit announced it would begin charging for access to its API. Reddit faces real challenges from free access to its API. Reddit data has been used to train large language models that underpin AI technologies, such as ChatGPT and Bard, which matters to us at AskHistorians because technologies like these make it quick and easy to violate our rules on plagiarism, makes it harder for us to moderate, and could erode the trust you have in the information you read here. Further, access to archives that include user-deleted data violates your privacy.
However, make no mistake, we need API access to keep our community running. We use the API in a number of ways, both through direct access and through use of archives of data that were collected using the API, most importantly, Pushshift. For example, we use API supported tools to:
Find answers to previously asked questions, including answers to questions that were deleted by the question-asker
Help flairs track down old answers they remember writing but can’t locate
Proactively identify new contributors to the community
Monitor the health of the subreddit and track how many questions get answers.
Moderate via mobile (when we do)
Generate user profiles
Automate posting themes, trivia, and other special events
Semiautomate gankom’s massive Sunday Digest efforts
Send the newsletter
Admins have promised minimal disruption; however, over the years they’ve made a number of promises to support moderators that they did not, or could not follow up on, and at times even reneged on:
In 2015, in response to widespread protests on the sub, the admins promised they would build tools and improve communication with mods.
In 2019 the admins promised that chat would always be an opt-in feature. However, a year later an unmoderated chat feature was made a default feature on most subs
In 2020, in response to moderators protesting racism on Reddit, admin promised to support mods in combating hate
In 2021, again, in response to protests, Reddit’s admin promised a feature to report malicious interference by subreddits promoting Covid denial.
Reddit’s admin has certainly made progress. In 2020 they updated the content policy to ban hate and in 2021 they banned and quarantined communities promoting covid denial. But while the company has updated their policies, they have not sufficiently invested in moderation support.
Reddit admins have had 8 years to build a stronger infrastructure to support moderators but have not.
API access isn’t just about making life easier for mods. It helps us keep our communities safe by providing important context about users, such as whether or not they have a history of posting rule-violating content or engaging in harmful behavior. The ability to search for removed and deleted data allows moderators to more quickly respond to spam, bigotry, and harassment. On AskHistorians, we’ve used it to help identify accounts that spam ChatGPT generated content that violates our rules. If we want to mod on our phones, third party apps offer the most robust mod tools. Further, third party apps are particularly important for moderators and users who rely on screen readers, as the official Reddit app is inaccessible to the visually impaired.
Mods need API access because Reddit doesn’t support their needs.
We are highly concerned about the downstream impacts of this decision. Reddit is built on volunteer moderation labour that costs other companies millions of dollars per year. While some tools we rely on may not be technically impacted, and some may return after successful negotiations, the ecosystem of API supported tools is vast and varied, and the tools themselves require volunteer labour to maintain. Changes like these, particularly the poor communication surrounding them, and cobbled responses as domino after domino falls, year after year, risk making AskHistorians a worse place both for moderators and for users—there will likely be more spam, fewer posts helpfully directing users to previous answers to their questions, and our ability to effectively address trolling, and JAQing off will slow down.
Without the moderators who develop, nurture, and protect Reddit’s diverse communities, Reddit risks losing what makes it so special. We love what we do here at AskHistorians. If Reddit’s admins don’t reach a reasonable compromise, we will protest in response to these uncertainties.

2023.06.08 20:14 YourTeacherAbroad The Yiga tailor
| || |
For the longest time I thought Cece was Master Koga's right hand lady. submitted by YourTeacherAbroad to TOTK [link] [comments]
I first saw Cece's clothing in the oldman's hutt on the great plateau. When I got into Hateno Village I saw this NPC called Sogene (I was playing in Spanish). Listening to the mayor speech I believed it was a villain who destroyed Hateno's charm.
After playing Age of Calamity I believed it was somehow related to master Soga. Because of the Sogene name and because I related the tailors that give you the Yiga clothing with her brand.
I guess she got her redemption after all the sidequests.
2023.06.08 20:13 No_Fig_3557 Just failed all my courses; very depressed.
OK, I am going to vent for several events that were entirely out of my control. Period.
So basically i have been forced into FLVS due to my severe autism. I get bullied everyday at regular school. I have a certified IQ of 157 as documented by MENSA. I am ridiculously smart.
So I am currently in 9th grade even though by now I should be finishing up 10th grade. In Spring of 2021 I began my courses. These courses are extremely difficult and the tests don't match on the exams....... :sad:
So basically I am currently only about 70% done with segment 2 of my courses (seg 1 carried over from regular school), which I should have finished over a year ago. I requested to extend these courses to this summer after they got extended for last summer and all of last year. These courses are very difficult. I do not want haters in the comments only support. I got pulled out of all of my classes and lost a year's worth of work. I am honestly depressed. I will have to start over on all the courses due to the fact I had a 30% grade in most. My parents came home screaming at me after talking to my counselor. They beat me with a whip. I have many hit marks all over my body. I am contemplating running away, but then how will I catch up???
So basically, I should be a rising junior, but going into the fall, I am a rising freshman :((((( "fresh meat". I cannot go back to regular school do to the fact I am 2 years older than the other kids and would be bullied relentlessly. I am also very small for my age so I could not defend myself. I freeze talking to people and barely complete DBAs. I'm 16 so I could drop out and become a youtuber or onlyfans creator....
so reddit what do you think i should do??????

2023.06.08 20:13 campaxiomatic AIAITA for cutting ties with my family over their controversial beliefs?
Throwaway account for obvious reasons. I (25F) recently made the difficult decision to cut ties with my immediate family due to their controversial beliefs. It wasn't an easy choice, but after years of trying to engage in constructive conversations and witnessing their harmful actions, I felt it was the only option for my own well-being.
My family holds extreme views that I find morally repugnant and harmful to marginalized communities. They are openly racist, homophobic, and xenophobic, spreading hateful rhetoric both privately and publicly. Their beliefs have caused immense distress and pain for me, as well as strained my relationships with friends and loved ones who couldn't understand why I associated with them.
Over the years, I've tried having open discussions with them, hoping to educate and change their perspective. I provided them with resources, books, and even invited them to engage with people from the communities they spoke negatively about. However, their hearts remained closed, and their beliefs only grew stronger.
Despite their hurtful beliefs, they are my family, and that made the decision to cut ties incredibly difficult. However, I realized that I needed to prioritize my mental and emotional well-being. Being constantly exposed to their toxic mindset took a significant toll on me, causing anxiety and depression.
I finally reached a breaking point when they publicly expressed their support for a hate group, posting offensive content on social media for the world to see. It was a clear demonstration that their views were deeply ingrained and unchangeable. I decided enough was enough.
I sent them a heartfelt letter explaining my decision to cut ties. I made it clear that their beliefs were not aligned with my values of inclusivity, respect, and love for all people. I expressed my disappointment and urged them to reconsider their beliefs, but I also made it clear that I could no longer subject myself to their toxic influence.
Since cutting ties, I've received backlash from some relatives who accuse me of being overly sensitive and "betraying" the family. They argue that I should accept them for who they are, regardless of their beliefs. Others have accused me of being the one dividing the family, arguing that blood should be thicker than disagreements.
While their opinions have caused me pain, I can't help but question whether I was too hasty in my decision. Should I have continued trying to change their minds? Am I wrong for prioritizing my own well-being over familial ties? Am I really the one dividing the family?
EDIT: Thank you all for your overwhelming support and kind words. It's reassuring to know that I'm not alone in facing such a difficult decision. I appreciate the validation and encouragement to prioritize my own well-being. It's time for me to focus on healing and building a support system with those who share my values. Thank you again.

2023.06.08 20:13 Shaikidow Am I blocking my own prayers?
It's hard for me to decide where I should start my story, so I'm just going to dive in: I've been feeling very down about my life recently. I'm unemployed and partnerless, and outside of some very brief experiences in both of those regards between 4 and 6 years ago (right after I'd gotten my MA degree), I have been this way all my life.
I'm almost 30 years old now, and I want my life to change, but I don't want to change my life, if you know what I mean. It's not like getting a job and a life partner (i. e. future spouse) is completely under my control and up to me and no one else, but the past few months have been very discouraging in both respects. I'm applying for jobs, but my efforts don't seem to be paying off. I'm not trying to date, because I don't have enough courage to allow myself to get hurt by rejection (and this is, again, something I've been a coward about pretty much my whole life), and I feel that I'm still stuck having any feelings at all towards a person who rejected me 11 years ago, with the fact that we've become friends afterwards not really helping me not have any leftover feelings for her when I'm at my lowest (and no, nothing else is happening, she's getting happily married this month anyhow).
My relationship with God has been pretty scarce during the past decade or so, but if the hardships I'm enduring are a lesson about prayer being all I have in the end, then I'm willing to learn. However, what I want to pray for the most is also what terrifies me the most: "I want to start over." I feel like I've spent too many years being cowardly and spiteful to be able to achieve some kind of a twisted 100% completion in the game of life, so I want to press F2 and try again... but whenever I even think of wishing for that in any way, I get scared that, if God gives me what I ask for, a) I'll die, or b) people close and dear to me are going to die, because if I'm not willing to do anything in order to change, then something is going to have to change me violently.
It's like, in a sense, I have this limiting belief that God can and/or will only fulfill my wish through natural means, i. e. through using His will to influence the world in a way that doesn't break the laws of physics and only works with what it's given... and what I'm giving is: "Please, God, change me because I dare not change myself", but then I have to add "unless that would mean losing those I love".
I feel like I'm conditioning my prayer in a way that only allows it to work if I'm ready to experience more heartbreak and let go of what I love, and I'm struggling to imagine that God even could just go puff! and let me wake up tomorrow with a mind immune to negative obsessions and a heart immune to fear.
I humbly request your advice regarding how I should pray to "start over" so that my past transgressions stop weighing me down and my present is fundamentally fearless. I can't say I truly believe in an afterlife, but I believe that God can change me while I'm still alive. Thank you so much in advance!
