Don’t hold anything in

I wish to be productive, to do more, learn more, get out there and express myself, just seems like I simply can’t get the right circumstances in which to do so. I practically feel like bursting into multiple “I”s and multitasking, lol. If only it were possible.
And, Animus, I understand where you’re coming from.
I understand that people are on here looking for advice and hoping to become happier people. I honestly believe thought that the main problem would be not putting theory into practice for most people. I can give you a three step plan to become a much happier and confident person easily.
1. Be careful what you put into your body. Pretty much any kind of drug that you take frequently will not lead to health or happiness, excluding hallucinogenics. Eat healthy, no more mickey ds and dunkin donuts. Vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and meats ideally.
2. Take care of your body. Do 3 sets of as many pull-ups, push-ups, and sit-ups as you can every day. get aerobic exercise like running, swimming, or bicycling. brush your teeth and get hair cuts you think are attractive. Get out in the sun as much as you can.
3. Actively express yourself. Tell people what you think about whats going on. Start conversations about the things you think are interesting. Draw, write, sing, any kind of art form.
I guarantee that if you do these three things you will feel happier within a month. Once you do something for 3 weeks it becomes a habit and it will no longer be a chore to do it. But will you give it a try is the question?
If any of you think you have a much more complicated reason for being depressed, here is a great book for treating depression naturally: http://www.amazon.com/Healing-Depression-Bipolar-Disorder-Without/dp/080271496X/ref=pd_vtp_b_6
I love the idea of this topic.
But okay, what’s on my mind? I feel that the immaturity of my friends and family is starting to wear me down. Arrogance and ignorance working in unison to create a giant, lesser-minded, metaphorical beast whose soul purpose in life is to make my life difficult. I swear HE is my escape from it all, where the wisdom never ceases to amazing and intrigue me. I suppose that is where I will have to stay though, laying down, reading posts on here and hoping that the world around me comes to an astounding realization of common sense and a grasp on the simplistic subject I like to call, “life.”
short disclaimer/edit/tag-on: I’ve actually been very happy recently, but was caught at a time where that was thrown off by nasal congestion. But, that’s what I was feeling at the time, and maybe my post would have been more positive two days before, maybe it wouldn’t have.
But it is interesting hearing the immediate thoughts of people at a given moment of their day, isn’t it? I wonder if we just casually think about depressing stuff more often, or if we just concentrate on the bad ones when we consiously organize our thoughts.
I feel so goddamn alone. There isn’t many things I hold too much meaning to in this universe. Things are things. I love people, emotions, music, and learning. It seems the more I continue life, the further I’m disconnecting from the things I love. The more I want people, the less they come around, the more I want to feel something, the opposite happens, I’ll play a song I love until it loses it’s effect and ecstasy-like feeling..and the more I learn, the less I know (although, I understand more)
Especially with the more I learn, which I care about the most, the less I can find people to talk to. Everything I’m passionate about, I can’t ever really get into with other people, because they 1) don’t understand or 2) don’t care at all.
I don’t fear death, spiders, ghosts..I don’t really fear anything other than never getting to experience ‘real love’ again..
feeling pretty good actually. I got into my first-choice college on Friday, starting in July. I feel like I wasted the last four years of my life in high school, slacking, never really taking anything seriously, didn’t “grow” at all. But I’m going to college soon, a fresh start, no troubles presently. Feeling good.
I have been doing twohundredpushups.com regimen for 5 weeks on top of the hundredpushups.com regimen, taking up 6/7 days. I have cut out pop, don’t eat fast food, have lost weight, etc. I brush my teeth and have gotten them a lot whiter. The only thing I lack is aerobic exercise, but once the weather gets a lot better, I’m planning on adding aerobics in tuesday and wednesday.
I play guitar and have learned several new songs. I am learning to sing and play guitar at the same time. I admit, it has helped, but today was just too much for me. I’ve been in a rut and have been trying to stand up, but today I just feel like laying here. I’ll eventually spring back, but when that will be or how much better I get is uncertain.
I had a dream this night where I was eating magic mushrooms out of a dirty sink at a nightclub, then getting lost in said bathroom and people came looking for me but couldn’t find me. Then I woke up and was very confused and didn’t know where I was, somehow I had fallen out of bed and rolled in under it. I was freaking out in there, and this scared the hell out of the girl, so she flew out of bed and kicked me in the ribs on reflex. Then we both realized what had happened and started laughing. Crazy start of the day.
I thought this thread could do with some funny, seeing how much negative shit is being written here.
This girl I really like I want to like her but I don’t want to quit loving the rest of the world, but then I can’t like her cause she always has a boyfriend, so i’m stuck between her and the rest of the world, and I feel so good when I see her, like a dream had come true. It bothers me to think I may be wasting my time.
@Robyn, I know it can sound weird but once you part with the physical pain, it is oddly relaxing mentally. It is a feeling that is hard to describe and that I never experienced after. I even thought “What if this restaurant and the food poisoning induced with the food they serve was a sort of mystical gate to another dimension” … Nice start for a sci-fi movie :-)
What does it say about the state of my mind that I don’t even know for sure how I feel about anything. I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing….
I feel really alone. I want so badly to connect with people, but there’s this haze in my mind, like a barrier made of fear, insecurity, and unanswerable questions.
Whats on my mind? I don’t know how to do my homework. I’m having coffee on Tuesday with this girl I’ve been in love with forever. I drew her this picture:

Or maybe you all should concentrate on something positive. Don’t hold anything in. This is the idea of the thread, people. What’s a downer ? Reading? There is something tragic in someone else’s misery ? There is, isn’t it? Selfish bastards :) IF there wasn’t so much compassion, there wouldn’t be so much sadness.
It seems like a lot of like-minded souls are feeling a bit of despair with the way the world is going. All of the unconfirmed and yet oh-so-convincing conspiracies involving our food and water supply, financial and moral support for science and health advances, political state of affairs, etc. is just becoming so overwhelming.
It feels like there’s an urgent need for some kind of change, some kind of feeling of optimism to bring us back to the brilliant, powerful, intelligent species that is the Homo sapiens. Not saying that all of the other animal species aren’t brilliant, but we’ve been molded into experimental machines just like the monkeys that we manipulate in experiments.
I say we need a movement of brutal and pleasurable honesty, of loving one another, of going back to some kind of basic communicative medium beyond internet and cell phones and get back in touch with ourselves and others. We’re lacking proper expression, proper compassion, and all the connections we’re meant to have. We’re disconnected from nature, good food, true love, and meaning of all that makes us human. Our generations to come need to learn about self sustenance, not how to get on top of the job ladder or how to get the best and biggest house and shiniest new toy…
Bring back humankind! Don’t let docility into our blood!
