what keeps you going on?


I have mostly given up unless I can somehow turn ish around. I find that despite having a brilliant intelligence we live in a controlled world-maybe I am the one who is controlling it and its just a horrible dream I will awake from. Sometime I think I am living in the afterlife and I already passed away some time ago and I don't know it. It just feels like its the same day over and over like some sort of game or dream.

Maybe all that isolation has done a number on my brain. Anyway what keeps you going day after day, I am finding that I have to look forward to the small things only cos that's all I gots unless things change drastically which I hope and think they will one day for me.

tomorrow I am having a plum with my breakfast-that's what I am looking forward to, was going to have it for dinner, but I will wait for breakfast now. What about you?

My refusal to stay down in the dark for long. Because even when I'm in the dark I'm trying to find a way out. My Inner Strength keep me going. I stink at everything else physically, mentally and even emotionally but God gave me inner strength. It keep me going.

I'm actually reasonably happy most of the time and I have quite a good life.

(Plus I can't give up because my wife won't have anyone else to go up to her place and feed the dog. )

I refuse to be born, abused, miserable then die. I believe in my ability to figure **** out and have a satisfying life and, barring illness or catastrophe, I refuse to let my story end any other way. So I'll be here til I'm living what I deem a satisfying life or til I die trying. I'm a stubborn *****. Or biology is. My impulse to live will make up any excuse to keep me here and I'll happily swallow it hook, line and sinker.

On enhanced mobile I don't receive notifications besides pms. Apologies if I don't respond.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving

Seriously? Probably my brother and mother. If I didn't have them I'd probably off myself. Even with them around I tried to off myself recently. :/

Tbph, I just hate the idea of being beaten. Whether it's by anxiety, self-destructive urges, or a complicated theoretical problem. So I keep going simply to prove to myself that I can't be beaten.

The fact that I have no alternative.

Basically it's just inertia. The flow of time carrying me along with it.

In case of emergency, my husk can be used as a flotation device.

When my SA was at its highest, I always had a particular goal in mind: graduating and moving to the US. I didn't just "want" these things; I made the decision and left myself no other choice, but to accomplish these goals.

When your dedication is so strong, then every anxiety or fear that you feel merely strays you away from the path temporarily, but doesn't knock you out. You always get back, stronger than before, and keep going.

The mistake many people make, I feel, is they just go about their life randomly, hoping that tomorrow will bring something better. But the thing is, you have to know what your goals are, where it is you are going. Otherwise, you will just wander in the dark, and every emotion, positive or negative, will change your direction.

Of course, simply having a goal is not enough. Just because I proclaimed that my goal is to earn a billion dollars, doesn't mean I will actually walk in that direction. You must fanatically believe in your ability to achieve your goal, and to systematically work on your skills that will allow you to achieve that. If these two conditions are satisfied, then your life has a direction, and even if you never reach the destination, you will still be getting somewhere every day, feeling satisfaction and increasing confidence.

Quote:
I wake up and I'm pixelated
Life is a game and I came to play it
I run through a world full of obstacles
Just waiting for me to come slay them
My my, I love the noise with
Ching ching, collectible coins
I'm on fire, I aspire to beat that score of a million points
I'm pushing all the buttons
Acting like it's nothing
If it's in the way, I annihilate it
I know I will bury
The stuff ahead that scares me
Cause I can take a challenge and decimate it
I don't quit and I don't settle
I get to the next level
I leave my opponents in pieces
The difficulty increases
The music gets all evil
Creepy, could this be dun-dun-dun
The theme song for the boss
Oh, it's time to step it up
Well, I'm know to do the best damage
When my life looks ominous
I'm pushing all the buttons
Acting like it's nothing
If it's in the way, I annihilate it
I know I will bury
The stuff ahead that scares me
Cause I can take a challenge and decimate it
I don't quit and I don't settle
I get to the next level
Don't slow down, you know that the world will own you if you let it
You already figured out your objective
Go and get it, barriers will explode
When you live as though there is no game over
I'm pushing all the buttons
Acting like it's nothing
If it's in the way, I annihilate it
I know I will bury
The stuff ahead that scares me
Cause I can take a challenge and decimate it
I don't quit and I don't settle
I get to the next level
I don't quit and I don't settle
I get to the next level

I like this, it sums up how I think of things on a good day as well.


Those good times and good experiences tell me that I can be better, and I am capable and competent to get there.

I think it's the love which keeps you moving on. No matter who's love as long as you're feeling being loved. That's enough.

There are some things in life that give me pleasure and not too many that cause me pain, so that's something.

Nobody loves me but my dog, and I think he might be jivin', too.

DON’T GIVE UP EVER

Quit, Lose, Surrender, Give Up…these words have negative connotations. Do you really want them to apply to you?

Are you really a quitter?

No?

Prove it.

Don’t end. Change.

So you have some terrible things going on in your life, most people do. It doesn’t mean you give up, it means you endure, adapt, grow and in time…triumph.

Being able to methodologically create concepts into my thoughts that can make me perceptually aware of actions, and receiving isolation for knowing what humanity is about. What drives me to to create new concepts is that the more that I've concentrated on using my thoughts, the more I received isolation from people that affects my living conditions. How does it affect my living conditions? because regardless of how many job applications that I've put in for or how many people that I address about the encounters that I've continued to receive, the people hold me accountable for others actions without being aware of their own intentions of their concepts. If I encounter more than one person telling me that I have no job interest, no learning interest, no social interest in an effort and I'm putting effort in, then it shows that the communication has been reverted specifically to isolate the person from having an income in the very first place.
