Whatever happens remember that a flamethrower is not the solution.
I know what that feels like. Only, in my case, it tends to be my mental health problems which get in the way.
Same, and tiredness.
Same, same, and angering the RPG Gods never helps either. They're so susceptible.
I think the lack of motivation to do anything, sometimes even to perform basic tasks, is one of the biggest challenges I face on a daily basis. If it's not lack of motivation, then it's constantly feeling worthless and hopeless. It means I struggle to find a point in anything, sometimes even in eating. Now I feel like I'm just whining about nothing.
I have a task for eating, so ig I relate
@The Stranger *nods* Thanks for saving me the effort of typing all that. I owe you one..
Well aren't we all a peachy bunch!
Do any of you ever feel nothing at all? I do. I often feel as if I'm hollow or dead inside. Not experiencing emotion of any kind, not creating thoughts or desires, just existing. I want to hate it, but can only do so after it has passed.
@The Stranger Not gonna lie, I do get the feeling and I often appreciate it.
I felt hollow till I met you guys, now I feel less hollow
@starlight dream Why do you appreciate feeling dead? I mean, I guess it's better than feeling as if you're drowning in despair, but it's prevents you from doing anything.
Sometimes feeling something even if its bad is better than feeling nothing at all.
@Alexander Hawksmoor I agree. Feeling something, anything, lets me know I'm still alive. When I feel dead inside I no longer feel anything, and can't relate to things going on around me. I stop living, and simply exist.
Simply existing is the worst feeling ever. Id give you a cuddle but that might make you feel worse lol.
Just existing, feeling like a passive observer, is a big problem for me. I'd like to change it, but I really don't know how. Awwh. I wouldn't mind getting a hug. I haven't been hugged in many years.
I am sleepy hollow.
@The Stranger I suppose feeling bad for too long is overwhelming and I like it when everything seems to stop. I don't enjoy the emptiness but appreciate it over some other emotions.
My feelings aren't the dominant factor to know if I'm alive. I probably feel too much to begin with
Hey Why didn't I get a hug to fill my hollow heart!
I usually feel strong emotions, and feel nothing when I'm at peace and have nothing to do.
@starlight dream But without emotion, how do we experience life? How do we love and laugh? How do we weep and share in the experiences of others? It just becomes this uncomfortable emptiness in which time ceases to matter, and I gain nothing (positive or negative) from engaging with the world.
@Marsigne I relate to that. It's good when powerful emotions take a break imo.
@The Stranger What helps me is knowing that the emptiness will pass. And I'm so anxious about the future that anything that gives me an emotional and neurotic standstill is welcome.
Even lack of feeling is part of the life experience. Just being. Awareness of the senses.
I call it my calm before the storm. The deep breath before the plunge. Where only LOTR quotes exist.
To All of you <3 <3
Gandalf quotes. xD That made me smile. It does put a hold on my anxiety and paranoia, but it's not as if I can be productive during that time. Awwh. Thanks for the hugs.
That's why I need a girlfriend.
@Marsigne Sigh. I need a hug dispenser- uhh I mean a boyfriend too.
I hope the gf you'll find will be as sweet as you are.
