Anyway. I have no questions Fish. Good job. Thanks for sharing your wisdom. Now get off this forum before it infects your mind.

Really inspirational thread Fishfillet, makes a lot of sense, early today I thought of giving up and accepting a lonely existence, this motivated me to go forward.

@Trooper Yes you can overcome it. Gradually of course.

If anyone's interested in cognitive behavioral therapy, which is basically what fishfillet did then u can click the second link in my signature... we're having a meeting tomorrow thurs

the biggest thing Fishfillet did was he became dedicated and kept getting up despite any setbacks (this is what i'm interpreting based on what he said). If you put the work and time in you can overcome SA-Disorder

I'm truly glad he's cured but that sort of gloating is really off-putting.

Damn! I should have asked my friend to pass me that book.

To be serious did you read any book that have changed your state of mind? Sorry if it's been asked before.

Good work fishfillet.

It's all pretty simple when you think about it like that, it's the hard work that's the kicker.

I'm going to keep some of this in mind tomorrow and own it, all day.

"I think the existential dilemma is: We're social animals, so we all wrestle with a sense of inadequacy. But when we realize that we're not as inadequate as we thought we were, and when we realize that everybody elese also thinks they're inadequate, then the ache goes away and the idea that we're not a person of value disappears to some extent."
