  1. Hey all, Firstly, I’d like to apologize for not posting the immediate response these heart-warming words of encouragement deserve. I'll skip the excuses. You strangers owe me nothing, and yet you’ve been so generous with your kind support. Thank you. Sorry for not saying it sooner. Secondly, thank you for sharing your personal experiences. I did read somewhere that clinical depression can be due to a chemical imbalance in the brain… that makes me feel better as far as my struggles to shake it off alone (so there’s an actual potentially legitimate reason I’ve had difficulty her
  2. Thanks so much for the kindness, hugs, and helpful suggestions, guys. It’s actually quite strange for me to be feeling like this. I’ve dressed up as Michael Jackson and moonwalked on a stage in front of 500 people for a charity event before. I used to present to a room of 25 people monthly as part of my job. And so to not be able to look someone in the eye when I’m merely buying a drink from a store…to suddenly get this social anxiety…that’s weird, right? It’s odd. I'm naturally introverted, but it’s not me to be THIS down and shy and withdrawn and it really makes me think something isn’t righ
  3. So…some days are ok. Other days – weeks even – it’s like I’m just…so low. Empty. Anxious. Don’t recognise myself. Wonder what the hell I’m doing with my life. Feel like such a failure. Can’t look people in the eye for more than a moment because my self-confidence takes such a tank. Not even when I’m just, say, buying a drink from a store. I keep my eyes on the drink while the checkout staff tells me how much. I don’t look up as I pay. I don’t feel confident enough to respond when they tell me to have a nice day. I don’t feel able to interact at all. I hate myself for it, and I leave, eyes on t
  4. Lol, how to handle your girlfriend kicking your arse? Simple. Playfully swat hers It's not a competition. (Or if it is, now you're square without even breaking a sweat...)
  5. 'Quiet desperation' must - will - resonate with everyone. It's about so much more than 'getting in shape.' It's about getting your life on track.

  6. This is something she has to do for herself. It sounds like she half wants it, which is better than not wanting it at all, but the follow-through component is absent. What's present, however, is an obvious dissatisfaction with herself. And, while I'm sure it's unintentional, you're actually aggravating that with your frustration. Now not only is she unhappy with herself, but you're also unhappy with her too. The natural knee-jerk reaction is to close up, and give up, and probably die a little bit inside too. She needs to find her own thing. Not your thing. Her thing. That way it will be her

      He kind of looks inflatable? And maybe that's how he can do that defying gravity / sideways thing?

      I never want to be that big but I wish I could defy gravity the way he does it

  8. Thought I'd share because this just makes me...go.

  9. TIP: Make broccoli more fun to eat by pretending you are a giant eating a tree.
