Are you comfortable? Is anything hurting you?
How come?

*hugs* either way <3

  • I fucked up a few days ago. I said something dumb, although not offensive or rude, to my girlfriend. It was just my social ineptitiude showing.

    (As a note, I tend to be really hard on myself when I fuck up, especially if it was very easily avoidable. It may also be worth noting that my girlfriend was my best friend for 3 years before she was my girlfriend.)

    So, I offered to let her punch me, as I felt I deserved it. She said no, like a fucking reasonable person, so I slapped myself instead, hard. I did this twice more throughout the day, apologizing for saying stupid shit each time. The third time I did it, she looked at me like she was about to cry and told me to stop hitting myself. I did.

    That was Friday. On Saturday, I emailed her apologizing profusely and explaining why I was hitting myself. She just told me that I didn't need to apologize, and I shouldn't think about it too much. She told me to play some video games, or to get some sleep. (I only get like 4 hours of sleep on school nights a lot of the time. It is my fault, by the way.)

    At this point I feel like a piece of shit for making my girlfriend worry about me like that, on top of feeling like a piece of shit for being an idiot.

    • Wow it sounds like you're having a really hard time :(

      I'm sure what you said can't have been that bad, especially as you obviously meant no harm! And your girlfriend obviously doesn't blame you.

      Can you say what you said to her that you've been punishing yourself so much over? You don't have to if you don't want, but you're Anon so you're safe to <3

      My best friend does a similar thing; hurting himself when he gets really angry or feels he's failed at something :'( . Have you been doing things like this for a long time?

      Even if it is your fault (I feel you there, really. I could never manage to stick to a bedtime), 4 hours is really rough; you must feel so drained :(

      I think you know hurting yourself (physically and emotionally I mean) isn't doing any good.. Can you maybe talk it over with your girlfriend? I'm sure she'll be understanding. Or is there someone else you can trust who you can talk to?

    • You're a boy genius, like, gifted and talented? That sounds really cool :) . Sounds like a lot of pressure though :/ . I think maybe you feel like you fuck up a lot of stuff 'cause there's these crazy high expectations on you, but really you just make a normal amount of mistakes, like everyone does.. Do you think that's unfair? I don't mean to sound patronizing by suggesting that

      That's a lot of responsibility to lay on yourself. It sounds lonely, having to be strong for all your friends but not talking to anyone about stuff that bothers you :(

      The music helps you feel better you mean?

      I can understand that feeling a little I think. I used to get into fights and lash out at people fairly often at school, 'cause people would bully me. I mean, obviously it's not an okay thing to do, but I'm telling you so you know I won't judge.

      I'm really glad that you have better friends now. The people you were friends with before sound pretty toxic :( . It's good that you're away from them

    • Those grades are pretty damn impressive, especially on so little sleep. But yeah, everything's easier when you're keeping the fuel you need to keep you going topped up - 'cause that's what sleep is really. Same as food; it's energy. I don't run your life, obviously. But I wish you'd get at least a little more sleep; 'cause I want you to be okay <3

  • I'm uncomfortably numb. The whole world keeps on moving at light speed and I just passively watch it in a plaintive mute silence. I know exactly what I need in life but don't know how I'll possibly get it and I'm constantly bombarded by memories of things I should've done but didn't. My mind weighs heavy on my fragile heart and the only way I cope is by retreating into my shell where its safe. I'm just a wounded, lonely soul limping through life, trying to find some place safe to lay down and plant roots with someone special. But I have a difficult time seeing that happen.

  • I've been getting over some jealousy.

    I've been craving affection and companionship/I can't stand being alone anymore.

    Staying at home makes me feel trapped.

    I want to hang out more.

    I don't want to be so reserved.

    Been thinking of a tattoo to symbolize my Emotional goings on.

    • I guess that's not inaccurate :') . I hope I'm kind anyway (thank-you for saying so). I try to be.. But I'm also intensely avoidant of people, especially when I'm at all stressed or upset about anything.. Right now that's what I'm doing; I'm hiding in my room and instead of doing any of the not very hard things I need to do to stop my life from imploding, I'm asking some strangers on the internet for their problems, 'cause I feel like trying to help all of you guys out is a good way to avoid mu own stuff :s

    • i know how it can be easier to help others than it is your self. and sometimes helping others is helping yourself because helping others is the type of kindness that keeps giving and very rewarding at the same time. sometimes you have to avoid what is bothering you to get the courage to face the problems that are in front of you.

  • Nope. not okay. No friends, no woman to love me. no one to talk to but myself.

    • Emo I guess would be like My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy.. Death Cab For Cutie as well though, and Secondhand Serenade, and Blue October.. Pop Punk like Marianas Trench. Punk-cabaret like Amanda Palmer haha. Britpop would be like The Beatles, or Oasis and Blur..

      What's your favourite anime?

      Donnie Darko's that good? I've heard of it but I don't really get what it's about.
      The Dark Knight is pretty fab yeah :) . LOTR and Star Wars wise I never got past the first films :s (by the first with Star Wars I mean the 1977 film, so chronologically the 4th..). And I've never seen The Godfather. I had a flatmate who was very into them though

    • well. for a man like myself. I really identified with the main character. You can watch it online for free and I highly recommend it. then you'll probably have to go on youtube to understand the ending of the movie.

      best anime from most to least would be,
      1. One piece. My OTP (one true romantic pairing) is LuffyxNami.
      2. Toradora!
      3. Black lagoon.
      4. Fullmetal Alchemist
      5. Blue Exorcist
      6. Space Dandy
      7. Cowboy Bebop.

I don't know if some people are worth it. I don't know how to confront my problems. I'm just stressed to the max.
