Have they tried to reach out and get you back into the cult? And were they accepting of your wish to leave or did they try to stop you?

How similar is a potential male contraceptive to the already existing pill for women? Do both do similar things, or is one completely and radically different than the other?

First of all, thank you for your service! I know a couple of veterans and even have one in my family, and I've got nothing but respect for folks in the armed forces :).

Second, how do you stay productive and active in a time of isolation? My father works from home as a programmer, and he's looking to teach me to do the same since I can be an employee at his (currently one man) company. It's something I really genuinely want to do, but I find myself kind of trapped in the "slack-time vacation" attitude, and it's hard to pull myself off my leasure activities and do something like learn to program like he does or do some kind of prison workout in my house.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to use this truckload of free time to be productive and keep marching on the path of self improvement, but finds it hard to do that because of some bad habits regarding goofing off and leasure time?

I wish I had a job in which sneaking up on bears is just a normal Tuesday XD.

I'm a young adult who's life has more or less been brought to ruin via a crippling fear and certenty of failure. Every time I try to do something more important than deciding what I'm going to have for lunch that day, there's a little voice in the back of my head that says "don't do it, you'll make a horrible mess of it and it's better to not try than to try and fail".

First off, would you consider this to be a variant of perfectionism? Second, do you know any way to tell that little voice in the back of my head to kindly knock it the hell off?
