Do not end up like me folks, because this shit only gets worse the longer you are in it. I've gone the occasional streak, and last year I did hit 90 days at one point, but eventually I fell back off and ended up right back at the beginning.
It truly does not get better unless you take steps to improve and solidify to yourself that you have an issue with porn. You cannot consume porn. At all.
Porn will do nothing but turn you into a monster you don't even recognize. I'm 35 and have severe deep rooted anxiety issues, continuous looping negative thoughts and morbid scenarios playing in my head, and all kinds of things that have haunted and plagued me my entire life. They all started not long after porn. I was 16 going to see therapists because I was too depressed to function and pay attention in school. Sound familiar?
I've told myself I'll fix me tomorrow for 24 years, and as a result I have been nothing but a destructive force in other people's lives. I have years of traumas to undo... keep reading on reddit ➡
I had it real bad about 5 years ago. I was constantly worried that if I thought too hard about the nature of reality and the universe, something terrible would happen, like the fabric of reality would unravel before me and everything I knew and loved would be gone forever.
I spent an exceptional amount of time being very concerned about this, trying to avoid thinking about it, and developing compulsions to help me deal with the existential dread (touching things, touching my husband to make sure he's there, asking him if he's real, etc.) I'd get frightening intrusive thoughts about reality collapsing around me, things not being how I thought they were, sliding into an alternate reality. I'd spend a lot of time on subreddits like GITM and Mandela Effect doing "research" trying to prove my thoughts wrong. It was very bad for my mental health. I had this constant haunting superstition that things weren't how I thought they were and just one slip-up from me would cause reality itself to... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've been recently quite invested into learning about geopolitics and leftism in general. However, I feel like shit about the state of the world and my country. How do you guys do it?
this is a 100% genuine question, I'm not trying to say I'm superior to anyone in any way.
I've noticed that when I try to talk about existential dread, big picture ideas in science, our meaning in the universe, and ANYTHING like that people become hostile, they dismiss my questions, or act like I did something wrong. It really hurts
I've heard people say that others react this way to big questions because of low intelligence but I think that's unfair and untrue in many cases
I suspect that people have just already realized how depressing this all is way before me and have no way of coping other than ignoring it but I'm genuinely not sure. Any insight?
!!! last disclaimer: I am NOT trying to claim superiority in ANY way whatsoever. if others show hostility to questions that make them depressed that's entirely valid, it doesn't reflect negatively on their intelligence.
It happens a lot when I pick the human and I love it’s high intelligence and stamina based stats it’s just that whenever I look towards the stars or sky box my human all of a sudden wants to go outside the map. Any advice?
I have DESPERATELY been looking for movies like Annihilation , Under the skin and found Event Horizon , Arrival , in the mouth of madness .etc. Any other movie that I’ve heard about leans WAYY too much on the sci fi side
Are there ANYY movies at all that will successfully make me wonder about the vastness of the universe again ?? :(
I feel like the closest I’ve ever got is Annihilation and Under the skin
Edit: A bigg thanks to everyone who recommended movies !! I can’t wait to watch them all !!
