THIS. dat was a beautiful testament to our youth—the springtime is slipping away. keep thinking recently that there’s a limited number of occasions left where we, or at least I, can run completely wild and free…..
“I love being in cities with lots of other people because I’m reminded that there are billions of people like me and we’re each stuck inside of our minds, feverishly trying to make connections with other people.”— John Green, Thoughts from Places (via wordsaretimeless)
I only use my blog when I’m depressed as shit. I’m going to spruce up my blog now. with Happy things and err, kind stranger, do me a favor and don’t…don’t scroll too far beyond this point thanks much love happy surfin’ xx
Why did you HAVE to strike up a conversation with me out of blue…of all days. ON VALENTINES DAY? and ask me if I have any PLANS? it’s like you’re literally TRYING to toy with my emotions/be a dick for your ego or something. like honestly I like to think the best of people, but that’s the more preferable thought, with the alternative being…you’re just THAT stupid. Nobody is THAT stupid.
AND WHAT WERE THE FUCKING ODDS THAT I HAD TO RUN INTO YOU AT THE SAME PLACE AT THE SAME TIME [while I was trying to genuinely enjoy life and make the most the day and pho-get about it] NOW I SEEM LIKE A CREEPY STALKER OR SOMETHING UGH WHY QWHY WHY WHY WHY
How do you deal with being lonely? I feel it too, acutely, and it's hard not to be pathetic and beg my friends to hang out with them. And sometimes they're the root of the problem you know, they do things and forget to invite me and it's not on purpose or anything but still stings. Welp that was emotional sorry.
It’s OK. I actually want people to generally be more open about their feelings even if means being emotional, because I feel like talking about things is healthier.
How do I deal with being lonely? I guess I recognize that it’s just a part of the human condition, and everyone has got to “pay their dues” once in a while. Of course there are some people that feel more lonely than others on average…you know, things that cause depression: thwarted belonginess, perceived burdennes etc etc. However, personally i’ve found that
these problems can be mitigated by talking them out by someone who will listen —> this can help anyone feel less alone. i find that this is often achieved by reaching out to others—even if it feels like no one is there for you, if you just put yourself out there you will often be surprised at how many people want to help you and care about you. The hardest part is dragging yourself out there if you believe that nobody loves or cares about you/you hate yourself. Often even just a change of environment, like even fresh air, or being forced to be social…helps to force me to be happy and actually changes my mood of loneliness…
So yeah, it helps to 1. have the right the people 2. not get stuck wallowing in your own pit of self pity.
My life also changed after I took the Myers Briggs personality type test. There’s some consolation in the fact only a very select few people in this world who can identify like yourself and can connect with you.
The interpretation of this data indicates that not only are skills of comparison and understanding of eventual outcomes harbored in the prefrontal cortex but the prefrontal cortex (when functioning correctly) controls the mental option to delay immediate gratification for a better or more rewarding longer-term gratification result. This ability to wait for a reward is one of the key pieces that define optimal executive function of the human brain.
