I stayed home two days avoiding a task I had to do, now I'm afraid of going out and being scolded by my superiors, which adds the huge anxiety that made avoid the task in the first place.

Call me a normalfag for this but it really bums me out how there is no one that understands and cares about my suffering.

Talking to a therapist feels like talking to a chat-bot that doesn't really understand your entire sentence and only looks for keywords.

Expecting strangers to read a 1000 word personal rant is silly. And it's even less likely, that the few people who see your post in the short timeframe it is on the frontpage, can actually relate to you.

It's told to be unhealthy but I admire people who are able to keep their problems bottled up and function and even put on a happy face. I am constantly walking around with a visible sad look like I have a desire deep down that someone will ask me what's wrong and hear me out and understand me. I wish I could just "man the fuck up" and "stop being a whiny entitled pussy".

Stop being an hedonistic faggot.
Read some (truly helpful) books, try self-improvement. You might even be right about being a selfish person, but there's not need to go around acting like a psychopath to gain people's attention. If you didn't care about what others think, you wouldn't care about how they'll react at your reckless behavior.

Because that'll bring you more suffering in the long run.

>I deny myself nothing - if I want to vent my frustration by stabbing my leg and writing nonsense on the walls with my blood then I do just that, if I want to eat a tub of icecream even though I just ate a big meal I don't even think twice, if I want to fap I won't deny my desires even if I end up fapping 15 times that day and leave my dick sore. This freedom of doing whatever I desire whenever I desire and however much I desire is impossible to describe in words, yet I have nothing but positive things to say about it


'Been there, done that.

You're acting as if you were a slave of the Will.
Powerful drugs such as heroin can give you the most pleasurable sensation you'll ever be able to experience, but then after a few minutes, you'll be suffering again, but now at a higher intensity than before. Sugar is addictive and harmful. If you keep eating sugar for a certain amount of time (a few minutes, even), you'll notice that it no longer provides you that pleasurable sensation we get from eating sweets because you fucked up your dopamine receptors. You weakened your senses.

We need more self-control and discipline in our lives and less addictions or irrational behaviors if we want to live a truly fulfilling life. You'll feel victorious every time you notice you were able to overcome a difficult task or when you achieve something out of your struggle.

I think I already posted this but I've had weird semi-tourettes for a while. I used to say "kill me" and "kill me please" randomly, I started recently saying "Wiz wants to kill himself", or "Wiz killed himself, sorry" in third person with my name. And now it's morphed in to "Sorry mom. Sorry". They just kind of jump out and they're not loud and take into consideration the social situation so it's not serious, but lately the "Sorry mom" has been coming out in public and when I'm driving with my mother. It stopped for a while and I'm getting better but it's coming back. It comes out of nowhere. It's strange.

Hello, long time no see.
Lately I've been working like crazy taking every overhours and additional days I could. Some extra cash is always a good thing, but it was mostly to keep my mind occupied, away from depression. It worked for few weeks (I even enjoyed to be around my co workers) but lost it's effect at some point.
So did my hobbies long time ago and I feel like I have nowhere to run.

Right now I'm "enjoying" my 3 days long weekend drinking, looking at high school photos and wondering where did I make a mistake that turned me into a 30 years old loner.

Funny thing is that when I was a kiddo I wished for that kind of solitary life.

Should have joined 27 club when I still got the chance. Suicide after you hit 30's only conforms the fact of being a looser.

Anyway I hope you guys holding up somehow. Cheers, fellow wizards.

For several weeks by now, every single day I've felt like I desperately need to make a thread about something very important, but whenever I try to put it into words I just press "New Thread" and stare at the screen until I get tired of trying for the day. It's always in the back of my mind, like some sort of itch, this painful and urgent desire to type something out. I wonder if not using my vocal cords for communication is starting to have a negative effect on my mind. I cannot even sleep properly, I often end up lying in bed without falling asleep for even a little bit - ever since this started I've only been able to fall asleep once every 2 to 4 days, all other times I lie in bed and repeatedly try to figure out what is bothering me, only to be answered by total silence.

I think I'm not doing any good to myself dwelling in nostalgia, revisiting all the old 2007 youtube videos, newgrounds games and websites. I'm trying to figure out my life, seeking high and low for meaning and the last time I felt truly happy was playing dating sims on Newgrounds, long before I knew about wizards and before I knew I was one as well. Even now I don't know what I'm doing in this life, I could never connect with people my age, never had friends in school, but I was content with being a misanthrope and cherished my escapism with a sense of being above others. Suddenly when I was fifteen, at a cultural festival my school hosted, in a shocking moment of clarity, I realised that I had no talents, no skills, nothing interesting in my life happened, I wasn't smart, nobody liked me, the "friend" I had was literally retarded, humiliating himself in Chris-chan fashion everyday on normanbook and I didn't even notice until that day, that he was the only one hanging out with me. Going home that day, seeing a known delinquent sell cigarettes to underage succubi, I saw proven before me that this world I live in is the worst one and that I belonged to it; not with the talented people, not with the intelligent and interesting, no with the scum. I am scum, born at the bottom and belonging there, unable to ever leave it. I laid down and felt the worst I have ever in my life. I'm useless, I'm worthless, I have lost at the game of life before it began. That day the depression which has haunted me ever since began, from that day I've been afraid to leave my house, nobody missed me, and all things that happened afterwards felt unreal, quite literally meaningless, people and interactions felt fake, staged, completely ingenuous. things that happened felt like bad movies, my grandmother's death felt so remote and far away, like she never existed inmy life. Now I'm clinging to my last shreds of humanity, replaying old flashgames and it only makes me feel worse.

I experience a lot of anxiety and bouts of OCD. I am afraid that I will neglect to do something and have negative consequences. I have taken to checking the alarm on my clock a dozen times for assurance it is ready and set. I have four alarms on my phone spaced ten minutes apart. When I close a fence gate, I make the latch click against the post eight times. I tug my zipper frequently to make certain my dick is not whipped out.

I came home from work this morning at around 6:30am and had a conversation with my neighbour from across the street who informed that a group of young men had driven up to my house in a black car less than an hour earlier and entered our property. When he went to check on what they were doing they fled the premises and he called the police to alert them to this occurence so in case a car gets stolen or something happens to our house in the near future they are aware of it. Now I'm worrying about what the crud they were up to and what would have happened had they intercepted me at the door. I love living in a sketchy neighbourhood that gets worse every passing year so much.

I spent hours last night crying, then this morning I woke up in a mania, I feel like my mind is going crazy racing, can hardly think, feel so confused, irritated and itchy, clumsy, unfocused energy, I have this phenomena where I keep "forgetting" something really important, other times this happened I just took a benedryl or something, now I have anxiety medication that I should take, but maybe later, zoning out thinking about this important "thing" feels meaningful. I think it all started yesterday with a mild confusion, then seep into depression and now back up to an extreme, I've been tracking my mood recently and the last week has been really turbulent for me, just constant up then down, one day I felt normal, slightly anxious and then into today

Why they would even visit this dead household is so beyond me. My parents are sick in the head and I'm just waiting to GTFO, now this stupid fuck have to show up for 3 weeks as well.

Bottling shit up DOES help. Whadyaknow it turns out that all the 60's shit about "letting it out" is just that - shit. It just means you concentrate on those feelings.

Bottle it up and you get so good at doing it, and dropping the bottle down deeper and darker wells that you can send depression away to a certain extent.

You'll never be exhuberent, but the ability to get quiet enjoyment out of things returns.

Why does everything has to be so hard in a dysfunctional family? I remember reading a therapist who said the number one way to treat a childs anxiety and emotional dysfunction is to treat their parents first.

Today I was driving my mother to a shop. It's in a giant shopping village so I needed to know where to park so she didn't have to go far, since she's in a wheelchair. So I ask where it is and she raises her voice, gets angry, and barks at me "WHY? WHAT ARE YOU DOING?". She's always so aggressive like I have all these malicious conniving plans when I do nothing but help. It's so tedious. If it was direct abuse like these children who get called stupid or worthless all the time it would make things easier to fuck off but it's just her being crazy in random moments throughout the day. It definitely breaks your ape brain though experiencing all this interpersonal aggression. I'm glad none of my brother or I will reproduce.

Jesus Christ not this again. My neck is in pain, it feels like something has been stuffed under the back of my skull, and the muscles are strained and the disks in-between the vertebrae are fucking inflamed or something. I try to tilt my head to crack my neck but it's nothing, just a slight grinding sound with an uncomfortable sensation like I've just sliced my artery open with my bloody spine or something like this.

Very much, but it is not easy. It requires a lot of discipline and consistency. The grind is important. One day you might feel completely hopeless and frustrated, but you continue nevertheless. You need to force yourself to do it every day for X amount of hours no matter what. Have a good strategy and put in the effort, and the results will come.

I had plans to read certain books for nearly a decade, and all I've done is spend a year and a half grinding through 200 pages, and listening to a podcast on the subject. Not really learning anything from either, just very, very shallow knowledge.
So I go nowhere. All of my projects are loose plans of tomorrow, next week, month, year type of things.

It's been a year since I had a job, and I've been in a program that is supposed to help me get a job, and that I should apply for jobs myself. I don't know if I'm even able to have a job like a relatively normal person.

I feel so ashamed of myself, and my parents keep shaming me for my life. When they call, I feel like shit, with the nagging questions, the need for details of my life, what plans I have with case worker, doctor and what-not, if I'm not addicted to computers, if I should get a proper education, work as a chef, work as a cleaner, IT man, whatever goes. Always some "why don't you do this and fix your life and become happy"-type of questions.
It's so tiresome, and I don't see a way out of this rot. I have no ambition, drive, initiative to do anything and everything leaves me exhausted and drained of energy.

Damn. I used to have such plans myself, but I have up on them eventually. I've sunk so low now that I wish I merely had the drive to become a gamer. I don't really have plans anymore because my health is shit, so I don't even wanna live anymore. Plans are a privilege for me now. I'm just hanging around because my condition seems to be improving. If I get to a point where I'm healthy I'll have the luxury of making plans.

Sure, I could still do things despite my shitty health, but I don't really care for living unless things are working properly. I'm just not enthusiastic enough about life to deal with this kind of bullshit. If I lost an arm or a leg I would just kill myself immediately, I just can't live such a degrading life. My whole life has just been shit, I'm just waiting for the day where I can finally start living. Maybe it'll happen, maybe it won't.

Is it your mental health, or physical health?
For me, it's mental. I'm just passively consuming things that aren't important. It doesn't matter if I miss a thread on an imageboard, of if it 404 or anything. It doesn't matter if I miss 5-15-30 minutes of whatever stream I got running in the background. I am not invested in it in any way. IT's just mindless shallowly listening to or watching something.
If I could play a game and enjoy it, I would be thrilled - not for the game, but for the ability to enjoy a game. Now I'm dreading considering it, and not doing any constructive things in hopes of some motivation another time. It's been 15 years or so, and things haven't improved in any way, quite the opposite, and I'm tired of even that. So I don't see a positive outcome for me in life longterm. Hell, being able to work a shitty and stable job would be an improvement.

Being a NEET isn't really a choice in my opinion. I think smug NEETs are a clear minority and most NEETs are simply incapable of handling work life. You don't become a NEET because you are some monk who rejects consumerism and wants to focus on his studies. You don't become a NEET because you think you can trick the system. You become a NEET because you are an anxious, awkward, fatigued, wreck. And while you are NEET-ing you aren't enjoying yourself but trying to cope. You don't play video games because you are interested in the story or the challenge, you don't watch tv because the plot is so interesting but because you want to distract yourself from all the negative feelings.

I little bit, yeah, there are cases such as you describe but there are happy NEETs, myself included. If I could, I honestly would live my whole life like this, I'm currently supported by my parents and they provide food, shelter and everything else. My life is nearly perfect. I have the entire day for myself which I spend reading old novels, drawing or simply reasearching whatever calls to my attention. The world has so much interesting stuff going on. Everywhere you look there's something intriguing to know about.

I see a lot of NEETs waste their time doing nothing, playing games they don't really enjoy or lack energy in general. I don't have any of those problems. I just have an honest enthusiasm about the world that doesn't run out I guess. Add to that the fact I lack desire to socialize, that I have my own bedroom and a decent relationship with my parents. Yeah, I really enjoy it. My only fear is knowing it's going to end sooner or later. Then I'll be having to work some shit job I don't care about just to get home exhausted and colapse in bed and prepare for the next day.

I do believe in the sentence "You die if you work" and reading the wageslave thread just made me more certain of it. So much to know about this world and you're stuck in some meaningless activity for hours on end, getting your soul sucked out of you. The fear that I'll have to waste my day working some day is the only sad part of my life.

Spending all day trying to keep my mind together. All the effort and intellectual energy without all to keep a brain together. I will never specialise in any skill, I will never get good at any hobby, I will forever be stuck holding together a broken mind. I'm spending all day inside my mind trying to get the engine started; focusing on shit everyone else does automatically. I'm getting blamed because nobody else understands and hey, I'm an ugly retard so they don't want to believe it isn't all my fault. What a fucking waste of fucking life. I don't even enjoy it, my brain is broken so I can't feel pride or happiness. The dude over there recovering from brain damage is feeling some pride but here I am managing a broken machine and there is nothing here. Sometimes I'm depressed and sometimes I'm sad, training myself to differentiate between different negative states is like learning the nuanced taste of others people's turds; it's complex information but you're still eating shit. I will watch my body and mind fail as the suffering comes over the hills. Nothing makes sense and nobody else is saying anything useful to me. Another morning spending an hour just to get my mind to remember why I should get up and move. Hey my body reacts when people are screaming at me but it can't just spend 1 minute to do something to prevent them shouting, welcome to retarded land.

i don’t know what to do. my life is falling apart rapidly. I wageslaved many jobs over the years but my social skills deteriorated too much. I am an awkward, jittery, weak, ugly fuck. I can’t hold down a job anymore or even a short conversation. I lost my ability to feel pleasure and my sex drive is heavily distorted or gone. I can’t live with my parents, i live with my brother and his 2 friends who are engaged to be married. I just hide in my room and avoid them all. My body is deteriorating. I feel like I should leave but i have nowhere to go. I go outside and just walk but it’s an endless stream of restaurant/shopping plaza/housing development/parking lot. I feel like i’m trapped in an elaborate people farm. I went into a gas station on this road and asked for a job. The owner hired me and after just 2 shifts he called me a retard and said something is wrong with me, then he fired me. One of the niggers who worked there robbed me for $100. I went outside yesterday and saw him with 2 of his nigger friends. We walked by on the sidewalk. I should have stabbed him right then and there but I am a weak coward. The two guys with him said if I try anything they’d jump me, but i should’ve just acted without hesitation.

I had a job interview at another place but I couldn’t even manage to pretend I am a normal human for that brief time. I went in the room and it was filled with HR and business succubi, I was the only male. They seemed incredibly disturbed about how weird I am. They smiled but i think they were just creeped out by me. I don’t think i’m capable of living in this type of world. I am too dysfunctional. I’m always paranoid that everyone can read my thoughts and are laughing at me.

i’ve been in community college for multiple years now and have made no progress at all. i fail many classes and i don’t even know if they’ll let me continue my major.

I've had this uncomfortable feeling lingering in the back of my head for quite some time now; it can't be described with one word, it's a whole new sort of anxiety that stems from the thoughts I'm having. I feel this sporadic apprehension about the world's inevitable demise, not the cosmic one, where the Sun will stop shining, explode and consume the entire Solar System or anything like this, but the one where planet Earth and everything on it dies by the humanity's hand.
When I imagine this, it's not some sort of worst-case scenario where we wipe ourselves and everything else out as a result of some major conflict or man-induced natural disasters, but something more insidious. I look at the progress we've made as a species, at what we currently have, and instead of feeling eternal glee for humanity's ingenuity, I feel dread; it's as if everything we've ever achieved is a facade, theatre curtains, glittering and bright, that grow with every scientific and societal advancement, as if to hide something, and I got to peek inside, seeing the sheer horror that lies behind, growing as the curtains grow, slowly seeping through. The worst part is, it won't reveal itself entirely until we're all long dead, but the humanity will get to see the curtains opening, frightening epiphany taking its roots in some, while, terrifyingly enough, the rest won't care, their attention diverted by the ever increasing sheen of the stage until the thing is almost shown, obscuring everything, turning past splendor lackluster, by which point it'll be too late for us to do anything.
Everything we've achieved, the small period of material abundance that has barely lasted for a hundred years, we will pay for it thousandfold. Greed, gluttony and stupidity, despite pushing progress, eclipsed our minds and will be the end of us. Death shall come dressed in stylish clothes, wearing a smile of a fashion model, entertaining us as best as it can while feeding us arsenic.

Realized today that I was using my old experiences to emulate what others were feeling in error. This idea that you shouldn't think you're different is a big mistake because you make errors in assuming others are the same. When I am depressed and my brain goes crazy all social interaction feels like a burning knife in my head. Social pain is a natural phenomenon that is exacerbated by depression and it really did feel like negative or awkward social interaction was strip mining my spinal column with a chainsaw. I was having real disproportionate pain and suffering to simple and regular environmental cues. So now I act with the impression that other people are experiencing the same and they really aren't and they never did. The feeling that social interaction is a huge cost on other when social interaction is nothing to them, and even awkward or unpleasant interactions are not causing them suffering. All of that was automatic and I didn't realize I was still doing it still. I used to cringe or get very anxious when my mother asked awkward or weird questions to people, putting a social imposition on them, because I was emulating the reaction that I used to have in my suffering; but in reality they are not experiencing anything like I did. My mother is not actually making them suffer and her innocent questions with good intention are not having intense negative outcomes on the other, so I have to remind myself that this is just normal communication.

Don't think you are like other people or that we are the same. It pollutes and breaks your mind.

usually I have no sense of smell but every so often i experience the ability to smell for a brief moment. I keep noticing that I smell very strange, and not in a good way. It’s almost like a weird chemical odor coming from my sweat and it’s actually rather strong. I wonder if maybe it’s a sign of some illness or something. My physical health sure has been deteriorating but i always attributed that to my poor lifestyle habits. I take lots of showers but I still notice the smell occasionally.

Does anyone have any material on how depressed people use language?

A big problem I have is that I've spent most of my life in situations that are probably familiar to many, another person trying to regulate your thoughts and words to have a different framing. Trying to think positive or frame your own language differently. Sometimes when my depression isn't strong now I can use language that way, so re-framing a judgement or thought will change my emotion. But other times my language or mental language does not change my thoughts and I am instead describing my experience so I can deal with it, and, when I do that with other people they inevitably try to rewrite my thoughts. I've internalized this repression of my own language and experiences and it has seriously damaged me. A regular one is this view that you can't pity yourself or say "why did God do this to me", or something similar, when you're really describing your emotional reaction to having so many things out of your control have huge negative influence on your mental experience. Other people want you to repress that and are quick to chastise you, but, without it you cannot express your feelings or how to navigate the experience you're having.

Right now I am having the issue with being trapped; I want to die really strongly and the only reason I'm not is because I cannot make the decision to kill myself because of my family. For other people deciding not to die changes their desire to die whereas for me I am just trapped by the decision that I can't make, and can't want to make. If I describe this situation as trapped other people want you to reword it or change the thought to something like "this is an obstacle" because they don't actually listen to what you're describing as an experience and just think it's language that if you say something different it'll change your feelings, and I know that is sometimes the case when I'm less depressed but it isn't what I'm using language for now. I find everyone is unable to understand how I'm using language and where I'm using it, and that I'm not always in the states where language has an effect but is merely descriptive.

I think of it in terms of descriptive and creation language, and some other forms of language. But is there any information on this because it would really help me navigate my own head and thoughts. Other people seem to be pretty inaccurate with their claims and have wormed their way inside my head. If someone else had written about it better it would be helpful.

If it concerns you, start doing memory exercises before it's too late. I didn't care about it, and by now my memory is completely untrustworthy - earliest memory from when I was ~14 years old, and the nearly two decades between that and today are filled with vague fragments that may be true or may just be my imagination, and I have little to no idea where most of said fragments fit into a linear progression of time. At some point I completely changed as a person (started using and addressing myself by a completely different name with no surname, by default think and type in english instead of my native tongue, became convinced I had no family and did not know who my parents were and so on) and yet I have no idea why or how that happened. Daily diary entries, then an unexplained month of silence and then suddenly I become aware of these changes all at once having already forgotten everything related to that change. To this day I default to using that different name and etc., and forcing myself to use the old one feels wrong, unnatural. I don't mind this change, but you may so beware of the dangers of letting this fester unattended.

I work full-time in a physical job whilst being severely damaged. I am tormented every day. I don't tell anyone because I don't see much of a point. My parents are despicable people, there's no point in telling these disgusting fucks anything, I've learned. I have confessed other problems to them in the past, the responses has been dismissive or even mocking. I don't tell my boss because I don't think it would do a whole lot of good. No one is forcing me to work.

I won't quit the job because I would lose to much. The hatred for my parents is too intense. I would prefer to just be on disability and live in an apartment on my own, but I don't care to go through the process of trying to get that (they probably wouldn't grant me that shit too). I will kill myself anyway if the damage doesen't heal, so I might as well continue the job until I end my life. The thing is that the damage has healed a bit. There is a possibility that it will fully heal, and this is the only thing that is keeping me alive right now. I'm not really a suicide kind of guy, but I know that I will get the courage to go through with it once all my hope is taken away.

I feel so too, or at least be entitled to disability benefits. So much depends on the development taking place during childhood and adolescence, and everything about reality presents too many possibilities to impair and potentially destroy future lives, especially if it has to do with brain development. People who had concussions or suffered from clinical depression will forever remain below average in their social, academic and work performance. What pains me the most is that activities which can lead to these adverse afflictions are often tacitly encouraged, like college/high school football and overworking, among other things.

Depression truly is self-perpetuating. I just tried to remember what made me slip into depression in the first place, and these reasons seem so insignificant and trifling from where I am now; and yet over the years of depression so many more things have heaped themselves onto me, warped my perception of reality, and now practically everything serves as a constant irritant for me, causing intense unpleasant feelings, which, paradoxically, make me numb — to everything, it seems, except them, I'm not sure.

I've lived elsewhere at times, but those were temporary stops and I returned like a boomerang back to the nest. Really, the only reason I am moving out is because I am being urged to. I'd settle with paying rent to stay with my breeder - it'd cost less and at least I'd be around familiar faces. The world feels so hostile and cold.

have you ever woke up at night having the conclusive thought that you should end with your life because there's nothing, absolutely nothing to live for? I did today, I think, twice. It's as if I somehow pondered in my sleep about this life and what course of action I should take, and when I had finally found the definitive answer I immediately woke up to say it to myself so that I can't never forget. After that, I catch some sleep and dreamt, I dreamt of things I've never experienced, and those things I'm sure aren't as beautiful or able to generate the same sentiments or joy in reality as they can in the dream realm. Then near the end I got bored, I was in a bus going somewhere I didn't want to go, discussing with some succubi what do they think is better, to be born a succubus or a boy. The question never got answered and I couldn't care less so I woke up. My dream was of a vacation in a place that doesn't exist with people that do exist but are nothing like I see them in my dreams, actually, I don't really know those people.

Entertainment is a dangerous thing, it becomes your anchor because it is available in all states of depression. Even if you don't enjoy it the constant flashing of information distracts you enough up until the point suicidal desire is ringing in your ears. When depression takes your sense of self, your sense of body, your sense of want, your will to live - everything that normal people can use as anchors in this life - entertainment is always there as long as you can open youtube and watch mild content to distract yourself. And then if you are having a period of feeling better you return to the anchor of entertainment that sucks up all your time, not creating an afterglow of pleasant feelings but just helping you zone out. Not for any outcome, just to pass time. Entertainment is a dangerous anchor because in the times you could do more you find yourself automatically coming back to it, the only anchor you have. Building alternate anchors is hard especially in modern alienated society and being outcasts, especially when the current focus of mindfulness doesn't work if your depression destroys the sense of self. Entertainment is a dangerous anchor though - need to be aware of it and how it's manifesting in your mind.

Wish I'd never bitten on the Buddhist apple to the point I let go of my materialist pessimistic past mind. You absolutely have to carve out your corner from the world clinging to it. And if you start off from a bad position with a mental health issue it becomes clearer and clearer there are mental dependencies that must be carved out first that others already have. Power of mind is entirely limited and those who are already happy or mentally sound get to believe all kinds of stories about their own minds the mentally unwell cannot because they must confront them against a mind that needs accuracy. Need to read these western atheist and materialist buddhists.

Why not serve yourself? Be your own god, your own idol. You don't need anyone else.

There is nothing wrong with this but it is problematic for our kind, the solitary type. That is why I believe it would be easiest for you to serve yourself directly, not through others. I hope you get what I mean, sorry for the bad english.

It is the creative force itself you have to tame and restrict. Through my life everyone has used the term creation in a positive sense of affirming life or a positive thing. They talk about thoughts and reactions as objects that stand alone and not as what they are - a subset of the things created by the creative force. Creative energies can be negative and you have to restrict them and tame them, the concept of creation itself is what you must focus on. The whole point of an intentional mind is to eliminate the creation of certain mental states; not the experiences which can be contained as a defined object like emotions or external causes but the actual total experience that is to be annihilated from your future. We are to stop things being created and acknowledge not all creations have value, some of the things we create must be destroyed and never seen again. Our creations must be destroyed and our urges to create them must be quenched. Not all creation is good. These created experiences have no place in existence and our whole goal is to make sure they do not get created again for us. Creation is the force you must resist and dominate. Focusing on thoughts without that knowledge is getting lost in the second step.

I actually find huge value in Nietzsche and think his discussion of how we're raised to sacrifice ourselves to "truth" in Christian culture as a starting point for understanding our freedom is essential for thoughtful outcasts who have been oversocialized in to those values. However! However, I know first hand the ability to manifest the energy and sense that the world bends to your will is entirely dependent on my biological state and depressive symptoms. Some days I cannot even access a sense of will as vitality or desire, some days I can.

>>203037 I outlined this in the 3rd paragraph of an old post how transient this vitality is. If Nietzsche helps you I agree that it is one of the best paths but depression has many different levels and types, although your posts might be an outpouring of that feeling of vitality and language there are people here where biology and materiality dominates their ability to experience those states - and that does not make vitality itself any less amazing. It is a problem of lacking a serious exploration of the different types of depression and one day I hope we have it so we don't get lost in these arguments about what works for each of us - but I promise you some people here have tried and it just doesn't create anything in their brain or experience because the biology can't generate those states for the time being.

Pretty much all religions were created and then fine-tuned by groids for groids, almost everything about them reflects this fact. When you look at the work missionaries and preachers do and have done for ages, you see that the primary selling point of religions that gets people to convert is the promise of eternal life after death, abundant and glorious, provided you follow the religion's teachings, of course. Another thing that resonates a lot with people seems to be Absolution, it's a quick and easy way of ridding yourself of any guilt, grief and pangs of conscience you might have had for your wrongdoings.
Groids love life, they want to live forever, and religion gives them that, even if all it stands on is sheer belief; it lets them feel good about being insufferable, too "I might have killed that man," says the knight, "but I bought an indulgence and told the priest about it and prayed a couple of times, now I'm okay." "I might be exploiting poor people, succubi and children," says the robber baron, "but I donate to charity, and I told the priest about, now I'm okay."

Even if chemical imbalance is a meme, this doesn't make depression automatically a thing of willpower. Such attempts at a "cure" are short-lived as the brief energized uptick in mood eventually returns to its baseline. You can feel that energy in your posts and it seems you have something to prove, you're 100% sure it can be solved like that because you need it to be true and to convince others. You're psyching yourself out with motivational triviality and have no real insight in how depression or any other mental illness operates. This is ultimately just dissociation from your real feelings, even if it is an honest attempt at getting better.

I'm not personally depressed. I'm all for people taking responsibility, but merely yelling at them to use brute-force ineffective tactics won't help them get better. I'd have no issue with your posts if you were providing any actual insight, but you're ultimately giving "solutions" that are as elegant as banging your head against a door continually in an effort to open it. Even if such techniques might make you feel better in the short-term, dissociating brings you further away from what you really need to do in order to get better - focused self-observation into your feelings, getting at the heart of the internal structure of meaning that is causing this chronic low mood. Depression is the result of how you look at the world and you have power to change that, but it requires deep introspection rather than using "willpower" to run way from your feelings.

I do sincerely hope you're actually "happy" rather than delusional, but if you do eventually crash down, you should look inward instead of outward, because that's where the answer actually lies.

What you describe is an emotional state, I'm talking about willpower. Willpower is independent of how you feel currently.
>and it seems you have something to prove, you're 100% sure it can be solved like that because you need it to be true and to convince others.
Or maybe you want to make depression into a bigger thing than it is because you are afraid of solutions?
>You're psyching yourself out with motivational triviality and have no real insight in how depression or any other mental illness operates.
I know how it works because I overcame it, unlike most of you.

Maybe it will, it is still better than licking their wounds and saying "I know that feel wizbro" or other stuff like that this hugbox is used to.
>focused self-observation into your feelings, getting at the heart of the internal structure of meaning that is causing this chronic low mood. Depression is the result of how you look at the world and you have power to change that
So you do agree with me.
>but it requires deep introspection
Introspection is an important first step indeed but it isn't enough to get you through depression. That is where willpower kicks in.
>but if you do eventually crash down, you should look inward instead of outward, because that's where the answer actually lies.

I'm pretty sure I'm missing a part of my brain. My body only moves to do something when I think about specific things like preventing my family from experiencing the suffering of my suicide. I literally cannot move my body to do things apart from pleasure seeking unless I focus on that thought. I can't move my arms if I focus on doing a task, I just sit there and my body doesn't move. If I focus on that thought that this is to prevent suffering I can then move. Feels bad being a retard.

Got a nasty cut on my finger tonight after I had to get involved with my parent's dispute in the next room, as she had a knife pressed against her arm threatening to kill herself. She jerked away from me as I went to grab it, so that's how the cut happened. Now I gotta worry she's gonna kill herself at any moment, claiming she's ordered a scalpel off Amazon and is going to slit her wrists with that instead when it arrives. I really don't need this shit man. I feel so very powerless & so very tired. It just frustrates me how little she seems to care about how monumentally fucked & alone I'd be, if she ever did such a thing. It's probably just her usual melodramatic antics, but I'm so autistic that I can't tell the difference about whether she really means it or not. Damn it all.

I have been a lurker here, never posted anything but I can relate to many people here.

My name is Mohamed. I am 19 years old and born and raised in Denmark, but my parents came from Somalia. I am a devoted Muslim, I have all the answers to the Big questions, but I am still depressed. I have been quit empty at times, but I just feel hopeless right now. School ain't working, I am taking a driving license but I can't seems to focus, I am addicted to porn and I have brainfog must of the time. I am in Egypt right now on Vacation but when I come back I will be dropping out of school and I would eventually be kicked out of home and I would not be able to finish and obtain my driving license.

School is shit. I go to Business Gymnasium/Secondary school. Its literally bullshit. I want to be entrepreneur, because 9-5 Jobs is too depressing for me. I thought I would learn how to be independent. How manage your money, save up and invest. How to start a business as a business from scratch with no help from rich parents, but no no, that is not what we learn. We learn useless theories and isn't relevant for a person who hasn't learned what I just thought we would learn. Its bullshit. Its all bullshit. Somalia is bullshit. Corrupt politicians, unelected anti democratic clan leaders, terrorist, warlords and Pirates are rooming Somalia. Its bullshit and now I am depressed in a country that don't even like my kind. For real the hate against immigrants and especially Muslims is growing.

I actually wants to improve Somalia and life comfortably there. We have the resources our we have one of the most strategic locations in the world and our coast cities are naturally beautiful great for tourist attractions, but its circus over there and a Somali Journalist that actually wanted to do something for her country was killed by Al shabaab Al Qaeda linked terrorist group. They bombed a hotel in Kismayo. Its bullshit. Please I need some life advices I am tired of beating my meat and crying. How the F-word do I become rich and Independent from society and bullshit.

Come on now. Well, there is no way to live without suffering like a dog. If you want something you have no choice but to suffer to get it. To be an entrepreneur for example means that you have to gather funds and support by working and expanding your social network. Running a medium or larger business without modern loaning system sounds like a bad idea but there are islamic banks or some shit that can lent you money without breaking sharia law. It's either deal with society's bullshit or die. You can't escape it.

I’m 25 and living with my parents who constantly fight and treat me like a child is ruining any chance of happiness in my life, but I don’t make enough money to support myself. They are people who are full of hate and resentment at the world and each other. They give me no privacy and have huge fights over the smallest issues. My mother screamed and threatened to kill herself because my father put their bedsheet outside to dry and she didn’t want it to get pollen on them. Any time I feel like I’m making progress in life and start to feel happy they ruin it. Everytime I leave the house they ask me where I am going, who am I doing it wih etc. When I try to pick up a hobby or make healthy changes in my life they make fun of me for it. For example I started working out and my father laughs at me and makes fun of me saying things like “ooh mr. muscles” and laughing. Sometimes I wish they would get in a car crash and die. I’ve been trying hard to get a better job so I can support myself but due to mental and physical health problems and high cost of living it’s very difficult. Just wanted to post this to vent while I hide in my room from them fighting. Hopefully they go away soon so i can go to the kitchen and get something to eat.

It's sad that parents are often unaware of how they affect their children. As a kid, you soak up everything like a sponge, especially implicit emotional things. Your father sees your genuine interest in something and his first instinct is to mock you and shut you down. As an adult, you can be self-aware and deal with this by realizing you don't need your parents anymore, but as a child, you're so dependent on this primary relationship that such signals are often extremely damaging, do it enough times and you'll be sure you'll NEVER try to take interest in anything or at least have enough trust in anyone to share it.

On the one hand, it enrages me that such people have kids. On the other, I understand that they have no idea what they're doing. How lucky are people that had parents that encouraged them, gave them undivided attention and support. They think it's enough they don't beat you, but then they complain their kid's a loser with emotional issues. I've spent most of my adult life trying to undo my parent's shitty parenting.

It sounds like his parents are downright assholes fully aware of the fact that they are making his life horrible and discouraging every glimpse of positive energy he tries to act upon. His parents must be miserable and regretable fucks who unwillingly gave birth to a child to whom they now fail to be responsible for. Even worse, unable to accept their own situation they shame their own child and project all their despair on him in a hateful and cynical way to prevent any chance that the child might live a worthy and decent existence overcoming his own parents' failures. These kind of people are life sucking parasites nourishing themselves from the mental suffering that they inflict on their looked down upon flesh and blood to ensure that he doesn't get any better than they have ever been.

I seriously think life has traumatized me. I have always suffered hugely just existing and taking part in the world and this constant emotion quite clearly fried my reward systems and so on. I realized today that I've been training myself to dissociate just to do chores or take action in the world; I go outside my body, stop my mind thinking, and being mindful or paying attention to my body shuts down my body. Placing myself inside my body freezes it and it doesn't want to move. I learned recently this is what disassociation is when people do it to avoid trauma or have to engage in traumatic things. Has just moving and participating in the world been so much suffering that existing has traumatized my brain - it sounds like a thing people just say but it might be true. My brain associates getting up and doing things with the burning pain in my head of suffering and the demiurge has broken me. At least this disassociation stuff works.
