Proud


Sometimes I feel proud that I have to deal with SAD and still have not given up completely.
It only lasts briefly...but it's a good feeling somehow.

Anyone else feeling proud?

It's only made me stronger, sounds ironic, cause I'm anxious alot.

I'm not proud of it though.

I'm proud of the things I've been able to accomplish despite having SA.

I feel proud that I've managed to sort myself out and deal with my problems rather than hiding from them

It's made me stronger and I did beat it at one point...(in hish school) I told myself I didnt care anymore and then I didn't. It took every ounce of my energy but to me it was worth it because people realized how awesome I was once I was able to show my potential. The important thing was that I knew I was awesome and that I had a lot of smart things to say, and I am glad that I got to show people that person. I did relapse when I came to college, but Im working on it. People seem to be ok with the fact that I dont talk very much, although they seem to feel bad for me. But I dont want sympathy I just want people to treat me the same as anyone else, because I am.

There isn't a problem with us, or the people that we are, its just that we have trouble carrying out/communicating our personality. I don't really understand why completely, but thats okay. We have to just be out for ourselves and play to win! Sounds corny, but true!

I'm proud that I possess this newfound power called SA, because now I have the ability to detract females, close relationships, and happiness! Yaaaaaay!


I'm not who I have in memory
Nor who is in me now.
If I think, I self-dismember.
If I believe, there is no end.

Lol, exactly how I feel. I can't really be proud of anything. SA has turned me into another person. Me, I'm social, fun to be around and all those things but with SA I'm nothing but a loser and a loner.
If I ever overcome all the obstacles then I will be proud of myself.

Right now I don't have much to be proud of.

I just don't know..

I can't identify with a feeling of pride concerning SA.

I can understand feeling proud of accomplishments towards dealing with SA, I've had some moments like that. It's disconcerting, though, when you're out in the "real world" and you realise how much more you've got to overcome. Atleast for myself, anyway.

Proud - I am not sure


I know I have problems and I really don't like to show my emotions, but they come out. Let me say for instance, when I get angry, it seems that my anger is shown through tears. It is horrible. At my last job, I worked so hard at getting along and doing my work. However, I had a person who knew that I was fragile and would make a comment to me and then remark, "Are you going to cry?"
Like ha!HA! I know what your weakness is.
It was terrible. I never made any rude comments to this person and usually went out of my way to be super nice to this person.

I know this person had problems of his own and would say things to me like that so he could feel better about himself. I had that figured out, but thought "why stoop to that level?"
