Comes with the disclaimer that if you're a tgirl the answer is completely different. Just remembering an old thread.

Shave it off. Refusing to bite the bullet while growing a skullet. That's ugly. Bald doesn't mean you have to be a big fat biker though. Get lean, like runner lean and the androgeny of baldness may help you achieve your look. At least it'll give your now completely naked face it's best shot at looking good when it's not covered in pudge.

I cant talk to anyone about the shit thats troubles me. I pretty much isolated myself from everyone who wasnt my girlfriend who happens to be extremely emotionally abusive towards me as of late. Im losing my fucking sanity fast, it's completely destroyed my confidence and self esteem I'm thinking about suicide every day and I've even taken to self harm and not eating again. I haven't been this mentally fucked up ever about anything and I really dont know what to do. I know I've got some really bad problems but lately they've been exasperated by the abuse super hard. I just try to smoke away all the feelings but it never helps. I try talking to her and she always has an excuse for herself to not be responsible for what shes been doing to me. If I break down she threatens to leave me and its killing me literally because I always beg for her to stay despite the fact that I know she's extremely bad for my mental health. I just needed to write some of this out because I really cant tell anyone, I'm not going to tell my coworkers or friends back home because it just makes me feel crazy. I can't tell any of my family because I want to hide the fact that I'm in this bad of a place from them. I can tell my girlfriend but she is the source of all of these problems and she just uses me bringing it up as a way to make me feel worse or make it about her.
Sorry for the long vent but I'm really concerned for myself because I feel like Im really losing a grip on reality and death seems like not so bad of a choice

recently i got dropped from my college for failing grades and now i dont really know what to do. people keep telling me to go to college and find a successful job and than youll eventually be happy. idk, sometimes i look into that fantasy and wonder when im going to start having fun in life since currently im clearly not.
i dont have any friends outside of social media, i work everyday and i now dont have an education where i feel confident to continue.
I just dont want to be a disappointment to my family but idk, at the same time i dont want to continue since i feel nothing whenever i go to college compare to high school. Back then, doing school work felt meaningful compare to college.
I guess the reason why is because it feels like no wants to back me up on my goals/dreams or that everyone is too busy with there lives to kinda give me a hello.
I remember one time my dad come over to help me fix my car, was really nice of him to come over but after he was done fixing he gave me some money for some dinner and left. Felt fake for whatever reason, maybe im thinking too much about my family.
As for my social life, i dont really have one since i dont know where to go or do.

times like these is where i feel i want to end it all since i have no one to hang out irl, i hate it. i wish there was a clear way to this but idk

It sounds like you need to start with manifesting what you actually want to do.

You don’t have to go to college, especially straight out of high school.

I waited 5 years to start higher education. I know the knife of apathy cuts deep but you need to break that cycle and take some risks experimenting with something that may excite you. If there’s no fire, there’s no life. I know it sounds like hokey “just be yourself” sequel advice but there really is merit in just having a (non net based) hobby. If you are honest with who you are, in and out, you will run into people who are compatible with you naturally.

But you have to get out. You don’t work 7 a week.

How do I help my NEET brother?

I moved out of my parents place at 19 and have recently moved back home to get my finances in order. Once I moved back home I picked up on my brother's behavior. He's unemployed, not in education the only money he gets is from the government whilst he "looks" for a job. He attends weekly appointments at a place that help him look for a job, which he barely makes it to as it is. He is enthusiastic and isn't very educated due to hardly ever attending high school in later years (he was bullied a lot). He also dropped out of college after his first year. He has severe OCD, which has even landed him in the hospital and has caused him to be very underweight for his age. He is also very depressed and is only getting worse. I see him starting to drink and smoke a lot and spending all of his time in his room.

I have recently applied for him to work at a catering and hospitality company, which may only provide him with 1 or 2 shifts a week, but at least it's a start. My main concern with this is that even if he does pass the phone interview (if they actually call him) he won't be able to hold down the actual job. My parents are on his ass about him being unemployed and basically doing nothing with himself. I want to help him get to a place where he doesn't feel like such a loser but I don't want to push him to the point of isolation like my parents have.

What annoys me is that he spends all of his money on expensive games. That's it. He will spend hundreds a month on games, wasting his money on shit he doesn't need. He has openly admitted to me that he is addicted to gaming so I may need to make a more serious approach to that aspect of things. I just don't know how to connect with him, despite being somewhat in his position before; a depressive insomniac NEET with no real motivation or drive.

(almost done)

Ontop of this he is a massive slob. Although he has severe OCD, he will leave his dirty plates, glasses and cups outside of his room for my parents to collect. He NEVER flushes the toilet (I assume because he doesn't like touching the flush mechanism). He will open milk, bread and butter containers and leave them open after he's finished using them. He will leave his dirty clothes in the hallway for my parents to collect. Either he's rude or oblivious. It's really starting to annoy me. He completely takes my parents for granted.

Anyway, I'm not sure how to help him for both my parents and for his sake. Any ideas? Anything would be highly appreciated and thank you for taking the time to read this.

The painful truth is that your brother is not going to get it together. The truth is that he is just another statistic unless you or your family has a LOT of wealth which I am certain that you do not. He will remain a dependent and live with your parents until they die and then he will be moved into a group home. I sense that what you're really asking is permission to get him moved to a group home sooner so that he is no longer draining your parents. You probably need to consider that your parents are choosing this as well and that being too aggressive will only alienate you from them and harm your relationship.

Everyone knows how to tear families apart. If you want to sing the 2019 version of 50 Ways, do it on readdit, please. Yes, putting people in group homes and washing your hands of any responsibility for what happens after is certainly something we all know is an option, all know how to do, and have all considered. So if you choose to maintain this course, know that you look like a child, slackjawed and clueless, talking about all the things you won't understand until you're older.

Your brother needs therapy man. OCD tends to get better by itself eventually, but can you all afford to wait that long? It could be decades before he has peace from it. But does he want therapy? It doesn't work on people who don't want it, you can't therapize someone. Anti-depressants can help with OCD, would he consider that if he doesn't want therapy?

It's kind of clear that you don't really talk to him much, does he cut himself off from you? Is there someone who he does talk to who could find out what is going on for him and what solution he might be willing to try?

I am voluntarily seeking CBT, anger management, and biofeedback. My insurance will only cover two of these and I'm leaning towards CBT and biofeedback. I started noticing that I've become incredibly irritable, to the point that it scares both myself and others. I've developed a hairpin trigger, and now struggle with explosive anger. I become inconsolable and uncontrollable when I'm in this state, and I am incredibly worried because I did not used to be like this.

It feels as if one day, out of the blue, I became incredibly agitated yet unable to pinpoint exactly why. I told my psychiatrist after several incidents of screaming my lungs out, at my girlfriend of all people, that were so out-of-place, overblown, and uncalled for. He switched my medications, but that seems to have not helped much at all.

I can be a bit of a worry wart, but I know myself and my thinking very well, and something very fundamental in my cognition has shifted. I've been asking my girlfriend how I express my anger externally and what I've heard is incredibly disturbing to me.

My impulse control is also extremely bad, and I have been acting erratically. I have long-suffering depression and anxiety which I am taking medications for.

Please, has anyone had experience with anything like, and what has helped you?

Was playing a game with my significant other, rapid-fire questions about things you answer spontaneously, no time to think, while distracted and doing another task. We do it a lot, it's fun. Except this time. One of the questions, 'five people we both know that you'd make out with if everyone was down' with it'

Four out of the five were sane, female choices and then out of my fucking mouth, my boss' name. Who is another man, and certainly not gay nor am I, but I guess bi-curious fits me well enough.

My fucking boss. I don't know where the hell that came from and the thought that it popped out is making me very, very uncomfortable. I.. yeah. This is problematic.

Other half thought it was hilarious, I'm like.. well, keep laughing, I'm quitting my job now because there's no fucking way I can ever meet his eyes again. Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.

Well, arguably, no.
But there are definitely situations where some latent sexual current makes things ridiculously uncomfortable.

In my office for instance I work with my boss, and one other guy, this jackass idiot. That's it. Many times I'm stuck in a small, hard to access, close-quarters dark room with just my boss. I've had to wildly stomp out a few thoughts before, especially
when he leans over my shoulder to point out something on my screen or sth and I smell his cologne and see the flecks of grey in his stubble . He likes the brown ladies, not the half-his-age nonbinary homos with tempers.

desperately need to stop pissing in bottles. the thing is, i think i messed up my bladder on dph and mxe plus chronic masturbation. now im not sure if its my high drunken hallucination or if i really heard the other roommates last night complaining of a pee stink, but i am terrified. the thing is, now i don't want to pour them out in our bathroom because i feel like all of the fermented pee odor will inoculate the room and it will be further obvious what i am doing. i have forty minutes until the store opens and i can buy a new giant jug, empty all little bottles of pee into it, and make a few trips to a public toilet. if the landlord/lady comes to investigate because of disgruntled roommates i am really fucked. ive been homeless since april, i can't get kicked out i'll lose my job.
but i really need to stop peeing in bottles, you guys.

I drink about 3 litres a day and piss as much as you. There's nothing weird about pissing every hour or two if you're properly hydrated. Plus if you get up to stretch your legs it probably doesn't reduce productivity and is good for your health. Sitting down for hours at a time is bad for your long term health and circulation and your concentration will take a battering after 45 minutes let alone 3 hours.

All you are doing is surviving. I doubt from that economic standpoint you are building, assisting or helping much of anything. Just because you have a job (strictly in passing/by opportunity, it sounds like) does not make your lifestyle cohesive to setting your own domain.

I don't know where this is going for you other than a pretty limp flex about your ragamuffin lifestyle.

So lately I've been thinking about phenotypes, how groups of people can form similar features. I want to fuck so many women, that our children basically become a new ethnicity. At the scale I'm considering, I think I'll need some kind of state-run industrial breeding program. I used to be pro-choice, but now I realize cutting off access to legal abortion and prophylactics could help to increase the number of women who have my kids. Alternatively, forced sterilization of all other males and abortion of their children would advance my goals. Perhaps there should be legislation banning the abortion of MY babies and requiring everyone else's babies be aborted.

I really need advice right now. How would you go about this? Has it been done before? Any books I can read?

Scrolls can be made from papyrus, a thick paper-like material made by weaving the stems of the papyrus plant. At first, books were copied mostly in monasteries one at a time. With the rise of universities in the 13th century, the Manuscript culture of the time led to an increase in the demand for books.

Today, the majority of books are printed by offset lithography.

New years is some hyped up bullshit perpetuated by all kinds of fuckwits trying to create the "perfect night", failing their own unattainable goal when they get drunk and have an average night with average people and then failing to complete their resolution at all the next year because everyone fails and you shouldn't be a perfectionist. It's better to be patient and create a routine over months not weeks.

New year's can be a really good excuse to catch up with people and have a party. Op is as stupid as the people he's railing against because he's buying into the same "this is what everyone does" shit that the people he is thinking of are. Most people don't. The debate at work was "do I just got to bed early?". I was thrilled to see some friends who I hadn't in a while and talk about life. Nothing more special than any other party but that's pretty excellent anyway. Things like this are what you make of them and a lot of people actually choose what makes them happiest and do that. Adverts tell me that bud is the king of beer but most people still consider it only mildly preferable to piss despite how much positive portrayal it gets in the media.

I don't buy into new year's resolutions because many people do them because they feel they should rather than because they want to. Change sticks when you want it. if you just feel you should it will fail. That's not a new year's specific thing though.

The rest of the OP is pure wank.

I had this problem pretty bad from about high school until I turned about 23 (I'm 28 now for reference). I also had anger issues pretty bad during that time. What got me over it is getting sick of being so angry and upset all the time. I realized that even when I wasn't upset, angry, or annoyed, I would actually go out of my way to find things to get angry and upset over, Being so upset all the time was making me miserable, I was deathly sick of feeling that way all the time and came to understand that I was directly responsible for my mood and my misery.

So, what I did was train myself to stop being a retard and getting upset over stupid (often little, inconsequential) shit all the time, as well as caught myself when I was looking for reasons to be upset and put a stop to it. I also trained myself to try being more empathetic because at this point I was borderline sociopathic in my lack of empathy, because I realized training myself to stop looking for things to be upset about and getting upset over pointless dumb shit was only half of the equation. Simply choosing not to be mad or upset could only be so effective on its own, I needed to prevent feeling that way in the first place. So, I recognized that seeing things from others' perspectives and being more understanding and patient was the key to preventing these feelings before they even began.

It took some time to properly train myself to do these things and learn to be empathetic again (took 3 to 5 months before I started seeing any tangible results at all), but I was so done with being the way I was that I didn't really care any more whether what I was doing to fix the problem was successful or not... rather, I didn't care if it seemed like it wasn't working or getting anything done, but if I wasn't actively doing something to improve things then I couldn't ever expect to get better, so giving up even trying was tantamount to saying/accepting that I wanted to be miserable all the time because I knew I was responsible for being miserable in the first place and wasn't doing anything to try and change that.

After roughly 6 months I noticed one day that I was actually improving, and after about a year I had actually developed a natural sense of empathy again and no longer had my life-long anger issues and wasn't always getting angry/upset over others' stupidity, incompetence, and failures. I had even learned to be more accepting of myself too, and overall it's improved my mental health greatly.

Wasted last decade of my life

Why can't I work towards anything meaningful? I feel like I'm always saying tomorrow but tomorrow never comes and the years just whittle away in the meanwhile.

Browsing chans and squandering money is easy. You aren't picking the wrong choices, that''s an excuse. The real problem is you don't pick.

Just saying "the future starts now" or whatever is a valid response but it's just a first step. Instead of making big choices think about various options and then try to break them down until they're little doable actions. Now you've got a plan which ones look more realistic and which outcomes are best. There isn't just one right choice any more than there is one wrong choice.

Easier said than done but honestly once you start putting one foot forward you'll find making effort is easier than misery.

If you can't pick a choice look at what bothers you and think about the best (not easiest and quickest but most sensible sustainable and with the least risk to make things worse and/or go horribly wrong, sometimes the best route is easiest but often the easiest isn't the best) way to fix it.

Sometimes though it is a case of soaking up this information and prepping yourself and talking yourself up and simply not letting any more real openings go by. The problem with me saying things like that is that in the end things only changed when I took the next step and if I just kept telling myself it would work out it probably wouldn't.

Started using imageboards around the same time, and uh, I'm still here. I guess the question I would ask OP, is what do you think is meaningful?

Sounds like you just lack discipline. Sucks, but the only real solution is to just make yourself do things. Making yourself do things that take effort and commitment is hard--you're not special or alone in your struggle to exercise self-discipline and to make yourself do these things Whether that's something you can take solace in or it just leaves you further dismayed, it is the truth. Having difficulty being disciplined and overcoming the tendency toward complacency is part of the human condition.
