I just tried to sleep and as I lay there / here, i started to stare into the darkness behind my eyelids, i started thinking about life, death and what comes after. I started thinking about my fiancé of six years and not knowing if I will see her after I die terrifies me.
Then i began asking myself if this reality is real etc. That's when i felt like i was about to have some kind of mental breakdown. But as i write this, these feelings and thoughts go away.
Nah bro, this is the time when you push those feelings deep down, go on to facebook, post a funny sentence or hilarious picture of yourself doing something awesome then jump on YouTube and look at some funny cat videos.
Hello OP. I'm a trainee psychotherapist who plans to specialize in a type of therapy called Existential Psychotherapy. Existential psychotherapy is a type of therapy that focuses on helping people come to terms with the givens of life.
I don't believe you're having a breakdown, I suspect you're asking existential questions for the first time.
"What becomes of my life and the people I love when I die?", "What is reality? How is reality defined?"
These are difficult questions. Psychotherapy might be of use to you, but... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Graphic Design and Art Studio isn't normally a money maker, but I do commission work on the side and there's a score+ of local studios and print factories I can work at once I do graduate. Thing is: I don't like the college I'm going to, I only respect maybe 3 of the professors I'm under, and that's being generous; the vast majority of the students in the field aren't convinced they shit in the first place, let alone that it would stink if they did, and I'm going to have to put up with this for another whole year.

>>16620358 Part of the problem is that i'm both claustraphobic and emetophobic; individually to only modest extents, but we're in a buidling that's no bigger than a large garage, adn ther'es 20-40 people crammed into it on any given day. I wear coats durring the summer and wash my hands at least 10 times a day, because some of these fucks just come in fucking miserable. And I'm like, "Why don't you take the day?" and they're like, "I can't afford to miss!," and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>16620380 >>16620358 Worst of all is that the two GD professors that they still have (6 quit because the place is so shit!) rotate who does the senior seminar every year, so I'm going to be under the idiot; lucky me! As it stands my odds of learning anything are officially over, and I'll just be clocking in for the next two semesters to get that piece of paper so people hiring me will trust that I know what I'm talking about.

Hey /adv/ a few months ago me and an ex friend got into a big argument he forced onto me when asking for advice. He later told me he didn't want to hang out with me anymore.
Usually I'd feel very sad about these situations and I'd get very depressed but this one made me more upset and I've noticed after he was gone my life has felt way better in a lot of ways as I go through my first year of college and hang out with friends that really listen and show they care.

I knew a guy that sincerely wanted to be friends with everybody. He had good intentions, but he was totally oblivious to how he communicated with other people. There wasn't one single defining action that made him despised by other people. It was just his regular interactions that wore down on the nerves and to make matters worse, he would always try to worm into every situation uninvited. I would phrase it differently if it weren't for the fact that he was always doing this. It was this constant wear that made him a burden to be around. People had to be dodgy to avoid...

>>16620353 >>16620668 Continuing... From the skipping around I did in your dialogue, I give you the following suggestions:
1. Appreciate things
If you were to say... Favorite a song on YouTube that a friend sends you, that builds enormous rapport with people. By demonstrating that you liked and appreciated something they did for you, it wins them over. If you're a regular complainer/critic, you're going to have to try really fucking hard to expand your...

>girl I don't know sits with me at a bar and starts talking to me >make boring conversation hoping she goes away >she does I'm 19 and I don't care about women at all. They're annoying. At what age should this become worrisome
Okay. First post here. Prom is coming. Me and the gf plan on going. Only problem. She wants to wear a shit load of makeup and make up makes me feel uncomfortable and i just don't like it. I openly told her how i felt about it and she got upset at me because "everyone likes makeup" "it makes me look prettier". I honestly it looks like shit on her... I dont know what to do. Makeup just makes me feel anxious.. (I have severe GAD). she just refuses to go without, saying she wants to be happy. What do?
either put up with it, or move on. i imagine you'll move on.
the best you can really tell a person like that is that you really do think they look hotter without it and that with it they look gross. she is a woman so she will find a way to feel offended by it but she'll eventually realize the point of what you are saying >she is so beautiful that make up actually makes her worse
Hello anons, I am on my Varsity Basketball team as a senior and I really want to do well this season to make a lasting impact.
However, I have a problem. When we have basketball "open gyms" (glorified street ball games) , I'm one of the best on the court. I'm doing everything right and playing really well. Pretty much an unstoppable player.
During a game, on the other hand, I am not that person. I play a weaker game and don't do as much as I can. I don't feel like I've given my all like I do in an open gym.

theres nothing to really do at this point but try and live life the best you can and make accomodations for your brother wherever possible. dont let him control your life. there will likely come a time where your parents expect you to give up large parts of your life to stay home and take care of your brother. something like missing out on love or a career or school or what have you.
you'll feel guilty but you have to do whats best for you, not for him.

I feel inadequate atleast sexually when i'm with her Always wondering how much better her ex is than me at sex Always thinking about all the things they've done together
How do i deal with it? How do i deal with knowing she's had someone more experienced and probably prefers him sexually? Is this all young foolish insecurity? I'm 20 and she's 18 I know she loves me and that I love her and that's all that should matter but why doesn't it to me? Is this just stupid guy bullshit? What do i do?
LDR Girlfriend of 4 months left me for her LDR ex of 3 years. I was pretty much the rebound after they broke up, and realizing that now really sucks. The worst part is that I regret not fighting hard enough for her. I simply let her go because I believed she would be happier with him. She said she had feelings for both of us, but decided to give her ex a chance because she had more memories with him than with me. I'm in the process of getting over, but I just wanted to hear your thoughts on the matter.

Would you be willing to move far away, leaving your family and closest friends for someone? Someone I'm madly in love with and share mutual feelings goes to school three hours away. Their heart is set on the location even after school despite them saying they have no friends there. I just don't know what to do. By the end of next year I doubt I'll have the money or capability to get out. Meanwhile they come from a well off family and could literally go anywhere they wanted. In fact this summer they ran away to California for a few reasons and ended up staying... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've known this friend for about 5 years and he's always had my back. His girlfriend broke up with him 2 months ago because he would break things and hold her down when he was angry. He's still heartbroken. I invited him to go to a bar last night, but he was hanging out with a woman that he's not really interested in and told me some other time. I went to the bar and saw his ex girlfriend for the first time since they broke up and we had a fun night and we wound up having sex. I initiated it.

For example, why the fuck would a laywer quit his law job to become a teacher? He is wasting all of his time and effort at law school. Also, being a teacher is shit with low pay, low social status, etc. These people are probably romanticising their jobs too much. Teaching has its own shitty aspects where you have to deal with kids who don't give a fuck about education and mark exams at home. The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. These lawyers can also strive to teach at college level, so why not do that?
And what about engineers, actuaries,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
