  1. @Truth AddictI mean this: I may go into a thought story, not necessarily about something bad, I may use my imagination,(and imagine for example that I have my own business or that I conplete my goals) and I can block vision and/or sound. Meaning, I can stop receiving information from my sense organs. This is why I referred to my personality type(INFJ), because I experience thought trips and get lost in a better world in my imagination. My personality type balances between the Conscious and the Unconscious and this was freaky when I was younger, but now it's just holding me back sometimes. Also, I disconnect from my body. I dont have stress anymore, I have body awareness, the problem is that I get detached from my body and sometimes feel weird, as if my hand isn't mine.
  2. @Truth Addict speaking of monkey mind, the past couple of months I have been very hostile against family and girlfriend and I see myself getting angry over petty stuff which makes me miserable. Its not that I dont recognize the meta-mistake, it is simply that I have the need to prove my point and argue for stupid reasons. I wasn't like that a year ago. But it may have happened due to me going meta as you said and questioning the status quo. Also, I have exhausted my basic needs. I have gained 50 pounds within a year but I am skinny nonetheless and I am sick of masturbating. My main problem is concentration. I have a relatively calm and clean mind. But I have difficulty concentrating on my surroundings sometimes, as well as in certain positive thoughts because of boredom and indifference.( In visualization attempts for example) @Nahm
  3. @Truth Addict thanks for the the replie. I think that obviously I just feel confused about my future and disempowered by my school years which required a ton of reading to get to university. Just so you understand the depth of the trauma that was being dealt to me by school, consider that before 16 I used to be a bibliophile, and I was very interested in philosophy, history, psychology etc., and now I despise even reading 1 page of any book. I feel that I have exhausted the hobby of music for the past almost 10 years. I feel bored, unenthusiastic, drained, emotional, fearful and it's just very harsh going from childhood to adulthood so fast. The realization that I have to work and survive on my own hit me hard, but I still have the support of all my family members. I just feel that my confidence and mood change from day to day. Also the confusion is hard and constant. I even feel bad for asking advice from you or from family because I have the need to stand on my own or I fear that it is bad to be confused, or that I just overcomplicate things
  4. Yes I have had emotional openings quite often due to musical stimulation. Also I have achieved letting go of repressed emotions with thinking or by playing music myself. I too am from greece
  5. I don't post often in this forum but I observe it daily. I need some help because lately I feel quite bad. I just turned 18 and I feel a lot of pressure on my shoulders. I will start university soon, I have the constant thought of finding a job in my head, and also I feel very confused about my future with my career and relationships. I often feel misunderstood. I have a strong bond with my girlfriend but we argue a lot. I dont have close friends. My mother is a true support for me. My parents are divorced but my father is in my life. All though we also argue a lot and sometimes I feel that I don't have him by my side. The thing is, I feel very nihilistic these days, very pessimistic, not energetic or passionate about anything and I feel that I lose myself and am inauthentic and weak. I feel disempowered. Not being able to enjoy myself. I have escaped a lot of self deceptions about religious dogma and the maze, so its not about that. The problem is that I inhabit two different worlds, the one that my senses lead me to and the one in my head. Oftentimes I find myself thinking about something and the thought becoming a reality of its own and drowing inside this thought. It's quite terrifying. I'm an INFJ. I live in the Consious and the Unconscious. Seriously, many times my consciousness gets blank and I forget that I exist or I get stuck in thought loops. Whoever knows about MBTI personality types can understand this. Also I feel that all is lost, pointless, and that I am alone. @Nahm I need you.
  6. @Leo Gurasome days ago you said that there is no big difference regarding the difficulty of administering a business that earns 20.000 dollars per year versus one that earns millions. So why here you claim that big business is harder?
  7. Some personality types have difficulty knowing themselves,they feel lost amongst others and regain power in solitude,most distinctively the INFJ. Have you taken the MBTI personality test ?
  8. How old are you? Also please tell us, is your girlfriend constantly showing you ( as you supposedly show her) that you are the most important person in her life? Did she feel badly due to you crying over her decision ? Or does she even know that?
  9. @ThomasEastman do you have any evidence for that? Or are you projecting to me your own inability to establish meaningful friendships with the opposite sex?
  10. As a Greek citizen (who also happens to have the American citizenship), I would like to start this thread as a place to discuss about and criticize various governments' inadequacies and systemic problems of their people. This topic isn't started because of ethnocentrism, but as a means to extract some valuable insights through a detailed analysis of various countries' politics. To begin with, some basic problems which are being seen in Greece and are common roughly speaking throughout all governments in the world are: 1) corruption, 2) clientelism, 3) lobbying, 4) poor managing and problem-solving, 5) insufficient welfare state. But, these are problems that are related to government and to how a state administers its public issues. Now I would like to address the issue of how the mindset of a country can greatly affect its course economically, politically, societally and internationally. For example, we all know that Americans' self-entitlement and self-centeredness pushes them to interfere with other nations' policies and want to rule over the globe. Let's start with the greek paradigm: my people have created a deep parasitic mindset due to centuries of enslavement which makes them lazy, crafty and hot-tempered. Although we raise grateful young people who are willing to work hard and who thrive in other countries as immigrants (and also are extremely smart because the greek educational system is well-rounded and offers great value), the main problem is that : 1) the people blame the politicians and don't get consciously involved in politics, 2) the youth immigrates in Europe and elsewhere in the world and leaves the country with a lack in sufficient workforce, 3) the state owes abysmal amounts of loans to the Europian Union, 4) foreign investors become temporary stockholders of state infrastructure, such as airports and ports, but with contracts which cede rights for over 100 years, 5) the Greek army has to withstand constant sea and air violations from the Turkish army due to the centuries old geopolitical tensions between the two countries. All of these systemic problems stem from a lack of autonomous administration, submissiveness to NATO and the Europian Union and the inability to exceed partisanships, minority groups' clashes and class warfare. But more broadly speaking and examining the situation, we can see that different people have different mindset oddities. For example, the Greeks are parasitic, the Americans are self-centered and self-absorbed, the Japanese are very traditionalistic, the English are very classy and aristocratic etc. What is your country's reasons and peculiarities for failing at addressing serious issues and for helping maintaining the status quo, whichever that is?
  11. High Consciousness youtube channel which covers topics about philosophy, ontology, humans, science and futurism. Highly recommended:
  12. Branding yourself gives certain opportunities which branding a business doesn't. So for example, you can create a persona out of yourself as being a loving, extremely funny, mysterious, leading or cheering person. Obviously you want to create an image which matches with your personality, but imagine how much connection you could form with your customers and how much trust you could easily create in your clients' hearts if you would feel entitled to their attention and show them the way. In conclusion, I think that making a brand out of yourself gives you the opportunity to stick to people's heads and makes it easier to remember you for a distinct characteristic you have, whichever your eccentricities are.On the other hand, a business appears far more distant and impersonal and is more fitted to exhibit some more abstract, big-picture elements of its own, which are less likely to appeal to common people or even be easily discerned. For example, see how much mainstream authors, youtubers, film stars etc. have become, versus big companies and corporations who go by the radar.
  13. Is there a chance the nail biting is nerve-based? Essentially, it boils down to either feeling anxious about a problem you've long been avoiding to address (so you get a kind of weird sensation of relief) or being neurotic about how your nails appear.
  14. I would also like to add on the other members' advice that an important factor to waking up feeling good is mental health and overall psychic and emotional well being. So for example, if you experience a depression I suggest it will be more difficult emotionally to wake up feeling delighted. Oftentimes depressed people find inter alia an escape in sleep.
  15. Usually friends know each other well and a lot of times the transitioning from a friendship to a relationship might be smooth because the 'get to know the significant other' face has passed long ago. I have seen that people who start immediately as a couple really dont match up well personality-wise. So the fact that you are already friends makes the bonding process easier. My advice would be to take it easy and don't rush to put him in your life but dont be scared to open to him and create something strong together. You just need to verify his intentions. Practically, you could try spending more time together, finding a common hobby, going out together more often or even playing some truth or dare game where you get the chance to ask him some deeper questions about himself. I think the point is to know him better.
