Thoughts and Feelings:

  • Got up very early and easily.

Have you thought about doing some sports? Improving in an athletic activity is one of the best ways to build confidence. Of course it has to be something you find cool. I personally like climbing, gymnastics/bodyweight-training and running ( functional fitness seems like a great idea to me).

If you could change on thing at yourself freely without effort (attitude/appearance/skills). What would it be?

Ps: You all ready are 3 weeks into a positive change of your life!Also you are very consistent with your journal. Great stuff!

Agreed. Make sure you celebrate this within yourself. One of the reasons why we remain down a lot is because we never take the time to recognize the good things we're doing, yet we're very quick to recognize when we fuck up.

As always, thank you for the amazing support guys.

 

Have you thought about doing some sports?

I have actually started climbing and I'm going to a competition this weekend. But I do fancy starting running and gym but I lack the confidence to get out there and do it. 

If you could change on thing at yourself freely without effort (attitude/appearance/skills). What would it be?

Attitude: Stop hating myself and just about everyone around me

Appearance: I want to be bigger- or just not skinny.

Skills: I want to improve my artistic skills

I saw that you had as a goal to eat a lot. This is a really good idea if you want to take get bigger. An approach which helped me to get bigger from 68kg to 74kg by just doing moderate training (I guess atleast the half of the gain was fat) was to eat the same breakfeast which was rich with protein. 250g Low fat curd (around 25g Protein), oat flakes and honey and a little bit of cream. Because I ate it every day I hadn't to actively think about it and ate a lot more protein compared to before.

Good Job starting to climb. perfect sport for skinny People. You'll get nice arms and shoulders.

I might have said so before, but I really like your journal post-layout. It's neat. 

Also, your struggle to not wank is admirable haha. It seems to be kinda rough; have you asked yourself why you want to stop? Does it have a negative effect on your life? I mean, is it worth the fight? Just because it's considered bad by society or what not doesn't mean it is. You know what's best for you though.

Lastly, if you haven't already, you should definitely go and read the Slight Edge (you probably have heard of it?). I think you would like it.

Thanks mate

I like to logically order things a lot. That's just me.

I think the main bad thing about wanking is the guilt that I have whenever I do it. I just think to myself: "I'm such a fucking loser. The only way I can get off is by myself. I can't even talk to girls"

I will check out that book. Thank you for your suggestion.

I have been busy these past couple of days and needed to get to sleep early.

Basically on friday I was quite depressed at school and I talked to a couple of girls but my self confidence just gave way and I just stuck my headphones back on and went back to studying. I also had quite a deep conversation with this one guy about leaving school. He is very likeminded to me. He is very antisocial and is picked on quite a bit. He is very smart though and realises that school is just a fad too. It's just a game about being fake and being the most popular. He knows that all the people at school are friends that nobody will ever keep and he can't wait till he gets into the adult world.

I went to work still depressed and I came out the same way. That's never happened. I have always been satisfied.

So on saturday I had to get up early and go to a climbing competition with school.

It went pretty bad. I was the only one that didn't make the semi finals and it really triggered my depression and low self esteem. So for the rest of the day I just spiralled deeper and deeper into negative thinking and self hate about being a loser in general. People noticed this but I just bottled up my emotions. I always do that. I hate showing weakness and burdening others with my problems. The strange thing is though the guy that was giving awards out at the event gave this speech at the end. Everybody just looked like they thought it was a dumb pep talk but for me it was like this guy was looking straight into my soul. To summarise, he said that everybody had the gift of youth and that they should keep getting up and try to become their dream self no matter what. Straight after I got home went to bed, I had a sad wank and cried. Pathetic I know. Didn't do pushups or anything.

So now it's the following morning and I feel very disheartened. I have looked back on my life and it's been just one massive rubber-banding of happiness and depression. I am sick of looking past myself to be happy. That's all I have been doing. I looked past myself into videogames and the achievements of my character. I look past myself now to my dream self daydreaming all the time. The other thing is though that I can't stay negative all the time because it will eat away at me and I'd be very mentally unstable. So I don't know how to feel or anything. Right now I just feel like staying miserable but I'm going to be persistent with my hobbies no matter what. I don't care about what i get out of it. My life needs purpose and my hobbies will provide that for me. I also hate school. I just want to get to university already and leave everyone in this shithole behind. One day things will fall into place. I cant give up with my hobbies or I can never hope for a brighter side.

Well that was my edgy emo faggot myspace blog straight out of 2006. Hope you enjoyed.

If it helps to share I am happy to read as much emo shit as you can deliver.  Bringt it on! ;)

 But seriously, sharing this sort of emotions with people you care about is really important. I know that it logically doesn't fix anything but in reality we are all social beeings and want to feel supported. The only way to get that Support is through vulnerablity and showing your bad side to others. Your desperate, full-of-shit, disgusting bad alter ego . surpisingly most People like you even more if tehy know this side because everyone has such  a Person in side of himself. I personally struggle a lot with sharing to People I care about, but every time I do it is worth it.

Hey soon one month and you still improving. Take a moment to be proud of what your achieved! You are doing great so far.

I think you could enjoy Mark Manson's writing style. Check out this article(https://markmanson.net/not-giving-a-fuck).

Thoughts and Feelings:

  • Got up nice and early
  • I felt very confident and happy today even though there were a lot of things that could have potentially triggered my depression
  • Everytime I began to doubt myself today I just told myself "who fucking cares. i have more important things to worry about" and it worked
  • Get me out of this fucking school! I want university already.

Tasks and Achievements:

  • Lot of studying
  • 100 pushups
  • Ate loads.

What I am grateful for:

  • Metal

  • Not giving a fuck
  • That article work in progress sent me. Seriously just what i needed.

What I have learnt from today:

  • Who cares about girls, popularity and all this shit. I don't need any of it right now- it's irrelevant. I have a purpose and that is to be the best person I can be.
  • I can reason with myself to not wank and identify my urges as cravings and not necessities.
  • I am feeling as if I am readjusting to reality. Real life activities like climbing suddenly really appeal to me and the dedication I had for videogames has almost translated into them.
  • I am quite keen on getting big. I'm getting the same vibe from starting out on an MMORPG and building my character for the first time.

About tomorrow:

  • Get up early
  • Don't wank
  • Focus when studying
  • Stay consistent with your goals
  • Running

Notes:

  • I have fucked up my detox day countdown
