No matter what people say, everyone goes through a struggle of one sort or another in their daily lives.

Some of these are relatively minor in the grand scheme of things, however, and are the sort of things one simply vents about with their friends or family.

Others are a bit more serious, and much more personal.

So personal, in fact, that people feel as if they have no one they can talk to, as there is simply no one who could even hope to understand what they're going through.

Redditor achub0 gave people the opportunity to openly share their current struggles which they haven't told anyone about, leading them to ask:

Sometimes when we find ourselves lost in a funk of sadness or depression, it's easy to think that no one will understand, and no one can help.

But even if they won't necessarily understand, there is always someone willing to listen, who will also do their best to help.

It's very popular to create rumors about certain historical figures to which there is no concrete evidence.

Such as the sexual orientation of Abraham Lincoln or the alleged illicit behavior of Lewis Carroll and Hans Christian Andersen.

Understandably, these mostly baseless, though not necessarily false, theories are left out of history books.

Namely, because it's not the sort of information many would consider in polite conversation, let alone be talked about in schools.

Even if it is no less fascinating than anything else we might learn.

We've sure been hearing the term "conspiracy theory" a lot lately.

And if history has taught us anything, it's that it would do us all good to avoid them altogether as they are rooted in falsehoods tied to clandestine government plans and sinister plots–which, yeah, doesn't sound good.

Observing their attitude around people or what clothes they wear can easily give away a stranger's temperament that identifies them as either superficial or genuine.

Of course, being judgmental based on one's appearance is not an unfair assessment. However, you know deep down inside, we all have the predisposition to do exactly that.
