Clearly I'm a touch useless, and need some help to make myself a better person, someone whose more well rounded. Someone who can change /777/ more than twice a year, essentially.

Regardless, go nuts and do what you normally do! To suggest future /777/s use this thread: https://7chan.org/7ch/res/4700.html

Ya'll doth protest too much. Let's try /success/ instead of self-help. That is, if you want users who donate rather than complain and become more helpless.

Healthy diet, regular exercise, limit drugs/alcohol. Meaningful social interaction, sorry 7chan doesn't count.

This is a solved problem. Do that and I promise you'll feel right as rain

Start training.

Go on hikes. Then add weight. Get a gym membership. Get certified in as many things as possible. Learn music. Learn a language.

Anything to make progress. Progress and training is what keeps me from killing myself.

Censoring Yourself. Useless 16/01/20(Wed)01:20 No. 935 [Reply]

I'm need help on Censoring Myself. I say things which make people hate me.

Backstory: People are threatening to get me kicked out of school because of random shit I say, normally racist/edgy jokes. People get really "offended" and want me kicked out.

I'm very extroverted, severe adhd, socially awkward, and can't control what I say.

How do I help myself. Should I be more introverted, or should I censor myself, which I can't control.

It's not censoring yourself, its learning to be a civil and decent human being. 90% of the population don't use or say racist/homophobic shit in their daily vocabulary.

you can either try (its not hard) to refrain from using those words, and wait a few years for your brain to mentally mature more if its the case that you're still under 23 or so.

also stop browsing stupid as fuck websites and playing video games with other losers who use such vocabulary.

I have pretty severe ADHD, and had some similar problems in high school. I just tried to isolate myself to avoid it. I really couldn't keep enough control to manage unless I skipped every other class, more or less. I ended up dropping out.

Not exactly inspiring, I know...

A few years ago,though, I started taking adderall. Now, I have a job that pays better than most college graduates my age could expect. I really regret not looking for treatment back then, and wonder if it would have changed things.

>>937
It's not really like that. With ADHD, the brain's reward system doesn't respond to normal input as strongly. The experience is very similar to addiction, except instead of wanting a particular stimulus, you just want anything more interesting than a certain threshold. When your level of interest is below that, you start to experience withdrawal. Saying something in public that you hate yourself for saying is exciting, and feels fucking excellent by comparison.

I don't know what to do anymore.

I'm moved out. I work full time. I have some friends. But I don't feel fulfilled. All of my hobbies have grown old. Everything is a struggle.

I wanted to join the military but found out that i'm disqualified because I did cocaine and have broken a bone.

Now, i'm 20, an too poor to go to college, hate my room mates, can't do what i've wanted to do all my life, am bored with work, and am watching everything slowly decompose. I haven't changed my car's oil in months, I don't care about dating anymore, i don't go to the gym, I don't clean my room, I put off errands. I just sit here on 7chan and think.

How do I fix this? I'm too much of a pussy to kill myself or to do anything drastic in my life (get a new job, vacation, move).

Okay so what you're saying is basically, hey 7chan my life sucks, tell me the magic spell I need to fix it because I don't want to actually do anything that requires effort to change it

Op have you considered that the lazy faggotry you're approaching this with is the reason your life sucks balls on the first place?

Okay, so I am 23 and I still can't get laid. I am not that bothered by the lack of sex itself, but I realize that becoming sexually active is important for my development as a human being. Therefore, I come to you in search of advice.

I think my main two problems are that I'm afraid of romantic/sexual interactions and of sex itself. How do I overcome these fears(preferably without having to turn to prostitutes)?

I was thinking of trying online dating. Is that a viable solution?

I've had plenty of sex, some good, some bad. My best advice is to try to find someone you already know, such as someone you went to school with. Ask around and find out if they're into you. If yes, ask them to hang out. Try to forget about sex, and don't set your goal for sex. Just hang out. Watch a movie. Try to relax. Then, if you want it, make a move.




Gaming Anger Problem Useless 16/01/07(Thu)17:00 No. 903 [Reply]

Why oh why, do I get to pissed at games??

I mean, not all of them, but there are certain ones that really set me off like

HEARTHSTONE

where I can almost "feel" by the way that the other person is playing, that they are being an asshole. Waiting until the Rope shows, taking forever on turn fucking two, playing fast when they are winning but as soon as I start making a comeback they become absolute retards and play slow as shit and play stupid until they lose.

In Hearthstone, after losing a few times in a row, I absolutely explode in a rage, spewing out rants about how the game is too limiting with the Mana and RNG of cards, not allowing for my intelligent strategies to be used in time.

Other games, like

FIRST PERSON SHOOTERS

get my shit in a knot too, as I am fine at first, kicking ass a bit and having fun, but the gaming session always ends in my dying a lot, angry as shit, shouting at how the other guys must be hacking (some are) and getting angry that other people are spewing shit in Chat, much like I end up doing at the end. I game on a PC and I am totally sure that if I had an X bone or PS thru, I would be yelling profanity into the mic and throwing my controller across the room, much like it seems others do.

Maybe it's less about finding a way to not get angry and instead breaking the rage feedback loop. When I get pissed at a game like FTL I find myself making bold, rash decisions. I mean the game is fucking with my strategy, right? Might as well just fucking throw my strategy out the window cuz fucking FTL isn't gonna let me play the way I want.

But then my rash decisions result in poor outcomes which make me even angrier and the whole thing spirals into Mt.Ragecano. So I try to get focus right at the start when I feel myself getting frustrated. I'm not so worked up so its easier to take a step back and reevaluate.

I guess I'm thinking its probably better to get off the bus to Pissyville at the first stop than to hold on believing there's happiness all the way down at the end of the line.

>Thanks but that doesn't really help, it offers no steps to go through to help deal with the anger, it simply states "don't get mad", which doesn't really make sense

You don't tell the Hulk to calm down, you tell Banner not to get angry. Prevention is the best course of action.

It's Wednesday night. I want to do a busking permit audition tomorrow morning, pick up a tshirt I ordered, take photos with the backdrop of my uni, arrange a time to skype with a grant-awarding body for my social enterprise, meet some volunteers I'm hiring, then go to a local nightclub for the first time. On Friday I plan to report to Centrelink, pitch my play idea to a student theatre group, go to my psychologist to ask for a social worker to automate some of my workload and get a referral to both a neurologist and temporary housing then I want to end the night by trying out LARPING. On the weekend I plan to give snacks to some political campaigners who'll visit my suburb and on Sunday to march in a gay pride parade to try and meet a nice guy

What can you analyse here? What is your interpretation? What is your evaluation and recommendations?

How to do you stop yourself from spending too much time on imageboards like this? Over the last few months I have developed the habit of staying up late shitposting on several chans, and I would like to stop. Some of them are starting to bore me, and yet I just keep coming back. I don't consume that much porn, but I find my tastes growing increasingly depraved. Virtually all of films/tv shows that I torrent I delete in disgust after watching a few minutes, yet I still have a dozen downloads queued. I spent two hours last night searching amazon.com in one tab and downloading ebooks in another.

If I did not need an internet connection for work I would cancel it in a minute. What can I do to gain control of myself?

I recently found out about a software called Freedom that blocks internet when you want it to.

Try also something called the Pomodoro Technique. Set a timer, work for said time, get a small reward, set timer again and keep working. Slowly increase the time you work, start with 15 minutes.
