Thanks so much to both of you. I know that I have a lot of work to do on nurturing a loving relationship with myself. It’s something that I have struggled with for years now. Thank you Anita for your suggestion of psychotherapy. I would really like to know deep down why I feel like I do. It’s like sometimes the feelings come up and I can’t even explain it I know that all of the bad things I think about myself aren’t true but sometimes it still hurts just as much. Either way my heart keeps growing little by little everyday. Peace 🙂
Metal is extremely spiritual for me. It gives me something to be very passionate about. Metal is in my blood and in my bones. I like all metal. I don’t take the more extreme stuff to seriously but I still love it. I think it’s important to realize that as a person, who is inseparable from the world and people around you, that all those negative things exist inside of you just the same as love and all the good stuff exists inside of you. Dude I wouldn’t give up metal if it’s what you truly enjoy. I’m sure that you’ll find the reasons to keep on thrashing way deep down in your heart, where it truly matters.
I know that for myself, Facebook was turning into a very poisonous thing for me. I recall countless times I’d see a girl I liked post her relationship status and I’d think, “oh god, she’s dating that guy, that must mean that I’m a total peice of crap and no one will ever love me like that.” I’ve been so much happier since I parted ways with social media about a year ago. Now I feel like that’s one less opportunity to judge someone or think I know something about someone. I still love the rest of the Internet and it’s culture will always be a part of me I think, but I know that for a guy like me social media is actually pretty unhealthy.
