Thank you!

I agree. However, I do not care what "motivating" posts people are going to chuck at me for saying this, but I cannot control my thoughts as easily as that; that is the nature of social anxiety disorder and all other mental illnesses. I am not saying it is OK to wallow in self pity (because that will undoubtedly not get you anywhere), just that thought patterns are much harder to break than just "snapping out of it".

This could not be more relevant to my current situation! I had a confrontation yesterday and I keep going over and over it in my head. It's driving me crazy! Thanks for your post!

Larry: I don't know why you call him an a*****e. He's not an a*****e, he's just shy.

Cheryl: No, he's not shy. He thinks he's smarter than everbody else and he sits there and he judges and he-

Larry: No, he doesn't, he's just shy! You've got shy/a*****e confusion, my friend.

thats a good post. i don't care so much about the past anymore, wat i really worry about is my present and my future....my future is so uncertain. i dunno wat's gonna happen, i dunno if ive made the wrong choices, career wise. yea the past is gone, but the future is still yet to come and its really daunting not knowing wat im gonna do.

So true.. I used to fell down on how I wasted all the "best moments in our life" (High school) hiding away in my world of fear, but as heartbreaking as it is, you cant change the past, so worry about the future

Great thread, and I love the positive, rational message here! What do we have to gain from wallowing in the mud of our past? The situation we're dwelling on is in the past, it's done, it can't be changed, and nobody probably even remembers or gave a second thought to it anyways... holding on to things from the past is a big time-waster. I have better things to do!

try it with alcohol. it's working for me. what you need are the right amount of alcohol and determination to be human again even tho i don't like 'normal' human like the rest. But at least, I'm living and breathing. It's not really that sad I tell ya

This is some wisdom. Easier said than done.

I've been having some really bad thoughts for over a month now that don't leave my brain for long periods of time. I need to reroute my brain.

This is a great post though.

(General response to most of your guys post)

You just have to try. You have to overcome the fears and try. Most likely nothing will go well after you start trying. People wont like you or worse... people WILL like you. All im asking is that you try and keep trying. Dont give in for the slightest things.

Something WILL happen, as long as you keep trying and keeping pushing. Something will happen.. Just think. Something.. Not the usual routines, not the usual somethings. Something spontaneous will happen. Something that you might not even want to happen. Something you might even hate. But but but. Something will infact happen. All you have to do is try.

Remember.. There would be no such thing as good moments if bad moments didnt exist.
