Oh sure, several major events. Obtaining and losing 2 amazing jobs, my mom's passing, my dad moving...and even just recently I went through a very rough couple of weeks (wasn't very vocal here about it) still grieving my mom.

And now I'm working on change in a positive way by working 1on1 with a therapist to try and do some CBT with her so that I can change the negative ways I think in order for me to maintain employment. I can get good jobs...but man I'm so hard on myself and I've got such vicious self dialogues going on in my head, that it's rough!

Re: What's happened to me? (thinking out loud)

In the time after my mom died, I hit the greatest despair I had ever felt ... depressed a little but in utter despair.

It's OK to take time to grieve ... and sometimes I'm most silly when I'm avoiding my own issues ...

Silly/happy people aren't always silly/happy ...

I think we needed to butt heads and be honest with each other like that in order to trust each other.
Just one of those odd things! lol

I use to be genuinely funny. Again, now I'm just hyper and annoying most the time.

I was a lot more selfless and loving. Now I've become increasingly self centered.

I use to be cheerful and full of joy and hope...I'm becoming more and more gloom as time goes on.

I use to have more respect. Now certain members straight up ignore me...and I'm halfway convinced I chase some people away from the forums.

What happened to me guys? I miss the old me that use to be here .

Any of you relate to these kinds of feelings?

Predictable results from focusing too often on yourself, which usually means focusing on your flaws.


I hate that it's true. It means if I want to be happy, I have to stop attempting to improve.

Wow...you are spot on.
I DO spend too much time in my head. I've really been realizing that lately. It's not healthy to spend too much time up there...sometimes I really need to get out of my own head. Stop focusing on myself all the time. It's just no good!

EASY!



I really should stop posting like 100% of the posts I read. I think it takes away from the point of having a thank button.
But you are right...I thank almost all posts I read. Whether I'm "truly" thankful or not.
It's become habit at this point. And I do it for all sorts of reasons...
Most the time it's genuinely because yeah...I am thankful for the post.
But sometimes I thank posts just to thank them. Or to keep place in a thread.
Or sometimes I do it to try and be polite. Or to show people I like them.
Or maybe I've thanked a bunch of people in a thread...and then someone else posts in that thread, and perhaps it's not a post I'm truly thankful for or something...but then I need to thank it because I don't want them to feel left out! lol Like "Omg, Psychopathetic has thanked everyone else in this thread...but he didn't thank MY post? /sadface).
And sometimes I do it to try and be encouraging to others. To be like "hey there! I appreciate you! ".

I think I'll start re-evaluating how often I leave thanks. But I will say that the vast majority of my thanks are genuine.

(((Hugs)))



I can't remember you personally ever insulting me? I can be rather dense and slow though, so you may very well have and it went right over my head.
Or maybe I'm just being insensitive and am not remembering. If so I do apologize .
Keep thanking. I don't think any damage is caused by thanking posts. I don't think it just represents gratitude. I thank everyone (when I remember)who posts in my thread mostly out of appreciation that they've taken the time out to reply to something I wrote..if I agree with them or not and then I thank posts to show I've read them when I've got nothing to say in response and haha I totally get that thing about thanking a post so they don't feel left out..I do that as well..
