Some days, I find ways to fight all the badness. And I get better. For a while. The whiles are getting longer, though. I think.
Suggester Said: ~Tagath is a talented artist I've been watching for a while. Her latest series has been rather dark, but poignant. She's never gotten a DD as far as I can tell. This particular piece hit close to home for me. (

;w; Oh, goodness. I must thank you so much for this beautiful art and idea. I don't want to spill out problems in my life (because everyone has problems, and hearing everyone's can make you weighted down. Plus, this isn't a place to do that sort of thing. *laugh*), but I will say, this is a great idea to use and I'll definitely be using this in the future. Thank you so much.
this sounds like me when im thinking somethings happening or is probably going to happen to happen to me. hnn its just two voices ones telling me all the bad things and its probably going to happen when the other brings up the things that has happened to me that were good in a relationship and that he wasnt cheating on me and that he loves me no matter what happens.......i should have thought of this sooner when i had the chance....
overthinking is something that happens to a lot of people, sadly... and usually, it ends up with making yourself feel bad about things that you can no longer control, or making you afraid of taking decisions... But writing down things helps you see the harm you're doing to yourself I think. And you know, it's never too late to start feeling better about yourself. It becomes harder with time, sure, but it's never impossible I think. So if there are things that are making you sad or afraid, maybe, try to figure out what that is, and what you can do about it?
I know the feeling bro. The more depressed I am the meaner it get... but at some point, through it's harsh word, I found the enlighten, gave me a great deal of help that none have ever provided. Thought I was the only one, but u've just disproved this
Sudokus helps too. Or anything that requires a certain level of concentration (I used to play Guitar Hero for example). coffee and alcohol both seem rather risky though, because of the impact they can have on the body in big quantities... But if really things are very bad, maybe you should try to see a professional, if that's possible for you? (I know it's not easy to do everywhere...): )
I really should see a professional, to be honest. I just don't have insurance and it will be expensive. It isn't that much of a priority, either, when a cup of coffee in the morning tends to set me right for the day. Alcohol is only a last resort and I rarely need more than I consume recreationally anyway.
This is a dreadfully dreary topic. I'd like to thank you again for posting your comic and sharing so much. I'm happy you've found your antidote and are willing to share.
Well I started meditation, it works very well and I feel much more balanced. ^^ I'm glad that you know you found a way to tame this self-destructiveness we humans have and it's really inspiring the way you shared it, just I bow to you. ^^ I think the world needs more people who are willing to share optimism like you.
We're all a little mad. Yeah, my psych used to call it hot talk vs cool talk. Basically, you can talk yourself into anything. And if you're always talking with the negative voice, then your life is gonna suck.
I'm rather surprised at how I'm not the only one like this. In fact, there is a greater amount of people that share a similar mind set or idea. Although, with mines, it is more than a shadow. It's a physically being split of myself and my other two personalities that reflect who I am. But, it leads to the problem of showing my emotions and well, being human; I suppose. There's alot of psychological and cognitive thinking that express this, but finding the words to say it to people who won't instantly assume you're insane is the difficult part.
I draw it as a shadow because creatures like that are very easy to draw, and this comic was done rather quickly. I don't know what shape I would have given it otherwise... and finding the right words is always a big problem in such situations (well, in all situations really). And using words from psychology doesn't always help, because most people don't know what they mean, or assume it just means you're a lunatic...D: But no, you're not the only one. It seems there are a lot of us out there (and I assume most of us haven't killed anyone yet, so it's good news!)
Negative, easily-fooled, bottle of random emotions...near-to-none positive outlook. It's many things like this that I'd be described for. Strange...I can pick people up when they're down and such, but not the other way around.
