The concept of wearing different masks on your face with your family friends spouse and work is... false.
It's a figment of our behaviors and personalities. It's how you behave with those people in respect to your life. Your idea of yourself is what made those masks and it can be read so easily. In the grand scheme of things you become the identity you perceive yourself to be or rather what you perceive yourself to be is what becomes your identity.
How you act and what you say or do becomes a wide window into your consciousness. Only we think that they are masks we wear when in reality you are hiding certain personalities from the other types of people. Ultimately we are self centered and focus too much on worrying to expose ourselves to other people and the possibility of other people finding out our hidden sides when we really should be concerned about treating everyone with respect.
Except we don't. Because everyone is living in this flawed perspective we call masks.
I need some advice, /adv/. Here's my situation. I grew up in buttfuck nowhere, graduated highschool, attempted army as a 35F but couldn't pass basic cause my legs kept breaking. Joined job corps, got certification in culinary arts and tcu/iam. Been in the culinary field for the past 5 years and I fucking can't stand it anymore. I want out.
I'm completely lost on what to do. I'm Interested in security, the police force, military related fields but I'm 25, female, and have already failed it once. Should I try it again? I already work out at the gym and am pretty athletic but is this a wise decision?
i know this might be the wrong board to go to for this advice but i need some quick responses

Hey guys, American guy, 23 here, doing an internship in the Netherlands. There's a cute Danish girl living on my floor and last week I asked her out. Things seemed to go pretty well.My job involves taking a lot of pictures for social media so figuring the date was successful I invited her this weekend to grab some food and go sightseeing with me because I'd be travelling around the main downtown area getting pictures.
She said she might, depending on how her homework situation was (she's a student). Anyway, the lunch date went well like I said, but texting on whatsapp she isn't very talkative at all, and this weekend she said she had too much homework, but said maybe next week.
I've never done so well with girls, maybe I'm overthinking things, and I get Danes have a different culture... if she didn't like me would she make it pretty clear? Like when she says maybe next week, does she likely mean it or is she being polite? I really like her and hope I didn't fuck up... I have a really energetic way of talking and stuff, comes off as kind of Tom Cruise-ish and I'm worried that might have fucked things up... a few people have commented on that to me, like I seem hyper and nervous even when I'm not. Maybe that's off putting especially to Danes?
Is depression just a natural response to growing up in a small town?
>have friends most others would consider shitty
>confront them about what bothers me, but usually come away feeling like I was at fault
How can I tell if they really are shitty, or am I just being melodramatic or something?

Can you get professional help for procrastination anxiety?
For all type of anxietys, its always useful to do therapy with a professional psychologist. It may take some time, it depends on how much effort are you willing to do during the procces.
Personally it really helps me out with many different issues.
Is there any easy way to break up with a girlfriend of two years? We are best friends but about 3 months ago I asked to take a break because I felt like my heart wasn't really in it. Fast forward to a month later, I missed her a lot and asked her to move back in.
It's been two months since she moved back in and I feel exactly the same way I did when I wanted to take the break. I love and care about her a lot, like I said she's my best friend, but I just don't feel any kind of sexual or romantic emotions towards her anymore. I've considered seeing a therapist but I'm not sure how much good that'll do.
