Let's make this a positive thread for a change.
I think saving my friend's life is a pretty alright thing to do
i honestly can't think of anything significantly good i've ever done
seriously, i spent like five minutes thinking about it
I drove some dude to the hospital after a hit and run incident
Also I give advice on forums a lot, although its entirely a selfish act.
come to think of it, i've never done anything good in my life *shrug*
at least we can feel this feel together
I called 911 on myself about 5 minutes after I downed ~30ish 1mg xanax
Best thing is bungee jumping from the highest bridge bungee in the world. Shit was dope.
I was a missionary for two years.
I helped people feel closer to the savior.
Some of them, I helped them change their lives to the better, whether or not it was in a religious way. I was seen as a free therapist for two years. I gave free labor - I worked over 700 hours of community service in those two years, and couldn't count how many hours of personal service I did. I didn't have a job, computer, I cut most contact with my family, couldn't listen to secular music, no TV, no radio, no normal books. I focused on helping other people 100% of the time. I worked 50+ hours a week, without pay, and actually paying my own money to be there. I got sent somewhere that I didn't pick and had no idea about expectations.
I loved every minute and I love the people I helped - I'm close friends with them.
Was anyone here when /mu/ convinced that anon not to commit suicide?
If anyone of you tried to help, you have the right to feel proud.
If the OP of that thread is here, please let us know.
I'm trying really hard to think of just anything. I may be on track to graduate university, so I'll say that
Gave a 8/10 shy girl a confidence boost by taking her on a couple dates. She needed it, she was nice and good looking.
>*tips whatever the opposite of a fedora is*
I saved one of my best friends from freezing to death.
He passed out because he was drunk, it was 4 in the morning and it was freezing(-14C°/6.8 Fahrenheit).
I had to carry him for 3km(or about 2miles).
my favourite album
If "best" counts as bravest/nicest/heroic thing then maybe diving into a pool to save my little sister from drowning when she fell out of an inflatable boat
she was a toddler then
she was pretty heavy as Im real skinny and my mum dived in seconds later to help me get her out.
I reckon/I hope I could have had the ability to save her on my own had my mum not been there.
Im sure I could have held her above water at least so she didnt swallow any then could have lunged her out im sure

I wonder if it's a bad thing or a good thing.
Like, I haven't done anything good in my life, or I'm constantly doing good things and I don't see any of them as anything extraordinary.
I've stayed out of people's lives for the most part.
bought all of a girls scouts cookies and gave them to her to eat
i can't think of anything good that wouldn't sound like jerking myself off
I can't really think of anything. The only thing that slightly comes to mind is my gf, who has had a pretty rough life and has issues just as I do. She wants to get married since she's convinced I'm the one and I feel the same way too, but I fear my often volatile negativity might push her away one day. It's not an easy thing to change when my whole life has been that way.
It's all positive up until that second half I guess...
i dont feel like theres a defining "good thing" in my life. however i do feel like i'm a good friend, and i wouldnt hesitate to take a bullet for most of those fuckers.
I've given away almost everything I've ever owned (which was a lot, over time)
Standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon with my feet hanging over the edge for about ten minutes. It was a quiet day and all I could hear was the ocassional sound of wind, birds and the distant chatter of tourists.
Saved a whole buncha puppies left on the cold next to my house
>tfw I have never done a single constructive or helpful thing in my life
Started joining bands and drawing. I guess just getting into the arts in general was the best choice I ever made.
That's honestly good advice, thanks. Of course I've heard it before, but it's good to hear "hike up your pants" once in awhile. I do sound a bit pitiful. I promise it is something I work on.
I helped my ex detach from SSRI meds. She had been on them ever since she was a teen because of her borderline personality disorder and now she's more happy than ever
I fell in love with a girl, we bonded over random things but she left for new york my sophomore year of highschool. She helped me transition into who I am now. I still think about her, I hope she comes back down soon.
I talked my best friend out of suicide during a bad trip. I'm in love with and he loves me but he's super straight.
>mfw favorite album is an ep
Went to a psychiatric hospital and got my life back on track
I talked two different friends out of killing themselves on three separate occasions.
I've never done anything worthwhile in my entire life. I have never formed a meaningful attachment to another human being.
I blast grindcore into my ears and wait patiently for death.
Long story short this girl I used to barely know opened up to me about all this crazy shit in her life. I got her to stop doing drugs and at one point she said "you saved my life". We aren't friends anymore.
the best thing i ever did do was help my father and mother patch up their relationship. they are so happy together now.
you the real mvp
>shitty RC benzos
I love my wife so goddamn much, you guys
prevented two people from killing them self
rescued a girl who OD'd and passed out in the snow when it was -18 degrees celcius outside
volunteered for an environmental organisation and started up a local department very successfully
Can't decide. The third one is probably the best thing in the long run.
Talked a guy out of suicide and gave countless people a new perspective on life to keep them from attempting to do it.
When I was a senior in high school, I was in my car leaving school for the day during a downpour of rain. I saw this freshman girl who I knew from church standing outside, waiting for her sister to unlock the car. No jacket, no umbrella, nothing. I drove over and let her sit in my car. Not a big deal, but I was waaay more IDGAF in high school, so it kinda was a big deal.
gave a beggar a pack of cigarettes and a pack of matches
went scuba diving in an abandonned navy ship in bali, literally the greatest experience in my life
as for good deeds, i work at a really low end grocery store in a pretty poor neighborhood, i often pay for someone's groceries when they cant afford the rest
I recently helped my friend through a bad trip while high. I slept in the same room as him because he didn't want to feel alone.
I was a nice older brother to my little sister and a good son to my parents for as long as I was in the house.
I gave a kid my autographed photo of Jerry Rice recently.
I can't think of much else. It might come to me.
It's kind of a long story, but I'll try to summarize.
>In college, living in 4 person place
>Dude and his gf move in to take one of the rooms
>Think nothing of it, gf is 10/10 though
>Dude is super into drugs, but seems fine for the most part, his gf works everyday so don't see her that much
>Fast forward to her fucking one of my roommates one night
>Shit hits the fan and her bf goes nuts
>He takes ten hits of fake acid and runs around the complex naked, for the next month he is always on edge and crazy and suicidal, but won't just break up with her
>Convince him to go get help somewhere after I had to call the ambulance when he was trying to choke himself in the shower
>He's gone, roommates couldn't handle all this shit so they moved out
>Just me and the girl
>Suddenly, "We are actually married, I work all day and pay for everything and he steals my car and takes all my money out and spends it on drugs. He hits me if I try to stop him. I've never met my mother. I've done every drug and I used to do heroin a lot."
>"Holy shit girl I'm so sorry come here"
>Pity and empathy turns into love, but I consistently keep myself from making a move. She needs a friend more than a lover right now.
>Fast-forward a month
>Everything is good for the most part, she is doing better, but she acts like my gf and cooks me food and is always trying to do shit to please me
>Just accept it and be nice, but really I'm falling in love with her
>Suddenly, "surprise! it's me the crazy bf and the rehab place is bringing me back to grab some shit this weekend"
>She starts freaking out and leaves for the weekend
>His crazy ass comes home, due to shitty contract stuff he is allowed a key to the house
>Goes to her room, she isn't there, proceeds to rip it apart and smash holes in the walls
>I convince him to forget about her and leave and shit and he eventually listens
>She comes home, sees the room, realizes that shes gonna have to pay $2000 in damages and snaps
I helped my father through the loss of his father even though he never gave a shit about me growing up.
Probably explains my shit music taste.
I gave food to a homeless person outside my local grocery store once.
same favorite album
I got into two ivy league universities and got a full scholarship + more benefits to a second-tier school, which is where I go now
Stayed single and friendless so I don't pull people under with me. I should get a medal for that.
of all the talk talk albums, that one?
