  1. They smell good, but are pretty bad overall. Might be better to get something for essential oils.
  2. Just the experience of moving out and exploring will be worth it. It will boost your confidence so much and make game way easier.
  3. I hit a lot of the goals I wanted with moving to a new area and have really progressed in my life. Unfortunately, I found myself back to square one in terms of my living situation. I never really update this kind of stuff anymore, but it is mind blowing to look back at some of the things written and what I have accomplished. I would never have guessed I would have been so successful in a new area. I have grown so much and learned so much about myself. I have hit a point where I am not sure what exactly I want to do in my life. I feel like I need to get more on track with business. Dating is starting to seem a lot more viable. I have been wanting to do some more dating as it has been so long since I had a partner. I just need to keep a level head and think things through. It is hard to believe all of that stuff that has happened in my life over the last year. I have really become a much better human being all around, but I still have some flaws to work on.
  4. @LfcCharlie4 I have done that and am reading a lot of books. Most of the groups on reddit and such just push taking meds your whole life. I was hoping to find some people here with personal experience.
  5. @BipolarGrowth Any tips here?
  6. @D2sage I have stood at the top of a couple and it is great for sure. I am sure I could use some more nature.
  7. Anyone had good success controlling bipolar disorder naturally? What kind of supplements, exercise, food, sleep, etc works best for you? I have been experimenting with krill oil and inositol and have had a bit of improvements. I work out 5 times a week. I eat super clean and do a lot of juices and smoothies. I find that this is helpful, but I am hoping there is more that I can try naturally.
  8. Any recommendations on resources for bipolar disorder? Anything from medications, techniques, books, etc. I found this book to be very high quality: https://www.amazon.com/Bipolar-Disorder-Survival-Guide-Third/dp/1462534988/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=the+bipolar+survival+guide+by+david+miklowitz&qid=1692940265&sr=8-1
  9. Anyone here have bipolar disorder and trip? What substances have you found to work well for you? Have you had an episode due to tripping? Has your condition gotten worse after tripping? Like having more hospitalization etc?
  10. @Yimpa It's been a few months, but you are right. I need to take some time to let things heal and get back in order. I am going to finish the LPC again and work on my health in the mean time.
  11. I experienced a dark night of the soul that totally shattered everything I was doing in my life. Destroyed my business, lost my savings, 10k in debt, lost a girl I was attracted to, lost my apartment, etc. I nearly lost my life with the entire situation and thankfully, I am okay. I have got some pretty insane results over the last 5+ years of doing this work. Something that I have not managed to do is get a solid life purpose together. I am going through the course a third time and it has been a struggle to really pick something. I have been in a limbo faze for a few months of really trying to make sense of what happened to me and what to do next. I have done some life coaching and health coaching, which has been great. I love working with people and getting them results. My recent experiences have lead me more towards doing something as a counselor or something like that. I could maybe go to school and do that. I have considered trying to build some branding to get more clients, but I have struggled in the past with making something sustainable and keeping with it. I have been debating on working on something mental health related and helping people get through similar life situations that I have been through. It's just been tough to fully metalize something. I actually have been planning out some branding and stuff around this and I am considering going deeper in it. It's temping to try to get things back to where they were a couple months ago, but I am not sure. I had a reselling business that I loved doing and it was actually going well. But it would require a lot out of me to get back to where I was with things. I have just been in limbo for a few months. For a bit there I was grinding games out and now I have just hit a point where I want to really nail this down. I am just not sure how I should move from here. What am I missing here? I feel like I have just been hitting my head against the wall for 5 years trying to figure out my life purpose. I tried a lot of different stuff and it just seems difficult to come up with something tangible and viable to do. What lead you to making the right choice for a career path for yourself? What helped you get clarity in a major life rut?
  12. Well, I should have suspected this girl was no good. I ended up talking to some other girls and revealed some massive lying around me and the entire situation lol. I should have trusted my gut more. Thankfully, I didn't get sucked into it. Thanks for the comments guys.
  13. @integral It's fair. I think I have just reached a point where most of those things are gone for me. I am not wealthy, but I have my own business and my own place. So it makes it easier for me to put all the cards out. For me I realize I am probably in the top % of men in my age group. Not that I have anything super special about me, but I have put a ton of efforts into making myself a high quality man. If I had other limitations, which I have had then I probably would put that stuff off more.
  14. @NoSelfSelf You're good. I think saying the bits about myself in the post made this more confusing. Mostly just wanted to see how much initial deception should be tolerated from a romantic partner.
  15. I am really upfront. Probably more upfront than most people these days. It's something I am working on for sure. I still notice some subtle things if I like someone though like not being as picky on certain things if I already like them. Things that I would have been more picky about otherwise. I probably should have highlighted this more in my post, but I am more interested in screening others for these lies and things at the start. Less on what I could do to improve on think about why I might do it. The example I gave is something that I experienced with a girl recently and I am not really sure what to make of that. Even in this case I am kind of unsure how think about this exact issue. I like this girl and I did actually confront here over the tattoo, because I figured she had one. I showed up to a class she was at and her tattoo is pretty massive compared to how she played it off. I am probably way over thinking it at this point. I didn't even approach her again. I just had seen the tattoo and didn't do anything after that. Just did the class and left.
