It's hard to keep up a happy face, don't hide under a mask in order to lie to yourself.

Hello, my friends.
For a while now I have had the assumption that I, personally, perceive the state of "feeling touched / moved" as more extreme than other people, though I have no idea why that might be.
The best example for this is whenever my dear mom passionately tells me about things she has done, for instance crafting some decoration, how proud she is of the outcome and that she'd like to show me. I perceive this as really cute and am extremely moved every time, but this "aww"-feeling seems more like sadness than anything else and one time even caused me to have some sort of emotional breakdown. One where I was crying for 2 hours straight, and I didn't even know what for - I still don't, in fact. This can't be entirely normal, can it?
My mom is the person I love most in this world, so then why do I feel so sad at times where her happiness shines through the most? Does it subconsciously remind me that I won't have her around forever? Maybe it reminds me of times when I wasn't good to her and I feel more grief now whenever I see how nice of a person and thus how undeserving she was of bad things that happened in the past?
Maybe some anons here have had similar experiences - if so, please tell us! Or maybe all of this really is normal after all and this is just what feeling moved is all about.
How many of you guys are hikkis? It is not something I am proud of personally, yet, it's only been about a month into my second relapse. Have any of you been through this, and have you any advice?
I saw a short interview with the actor who played Barney the Dinosaur the other day. I know it sounds ridiculous but I can't stop thinking about it. Here's a guy with probably one of the shittiest jobs I can imagine and he's just radiating happiness while talking about it. Imagine being in that giant suit, having to dance around for hours probably to kiddie music, the studio lights beaming down on you, you can barely see anything and you're sweating like crazy. But this guy has nothing but positive things about the experience, in fact he says he "loved" being Barney. Most people who do costume work only do it to move up to something better but this guy played Barney for TEN YEARS. He even loves the annoying "I love you" song that Barney sings which he's probably had to listen to thousands of times over the years.
I can't stop thinking about how positive and happy this guy is. I'm such a aggressive, pessimistic, stressed-out person. If I had a job like that, I would probably complain about it all the time. I wish I could be like him and see it as nothing but pure joy. I want whatever he has. In the video, he mentions that he studies Tantra and regularly did meditation. Do you think that's the key to becoming calm and content like he is? Or is that just who he is as a person?
Anyone else doing this?
I know a lot of people are skeptical of any health benefits that could be gained from not wagglin your willly and idk if there are true health benefits myself, but I know for sure I am addicted to pornography and I want to stop. I have many personal reasons as to why I want to stop masturbating and watching porn.
So thoughts on nofap?
Tips and tricks to help fight the urge when it comes?
Does anyone here suffer from tinnitus? How you deal with the blasted ringing when it comes? I feel like I can't enjoy the simple pleasures of music anymore.
Anyone have any experience with antidepressants here? I'm getting so desperate I'm willing to try anything.
I don't have problems with alarm but I literally can't get out of bed, I spend hours (yes, hours) in my bed just draydreaming and escaping to a fantasy world
What should I do to stop it?
We got any teafags up in here?
>not drinking a nice warm cup of chamomile every night before going to bed
Why do I have no discipline?
Why can't I do anything?
Has anyone else tried an enneagram personality test? I just heard about it and took it, was a little scared how dead on it was. Though I guess people always say that about personality tests.
Got type 5, balanced wings.
I know that this might be pushing at the limits of this boards topic a bit, but towards what end are you living your life, anon?
I have moderate acne on my face and moderate/severe acne on my chest and back. Ive had it since a teenager and never really cared but recenetly decided that I ought to do something about it.
Has anyone had any experience with this?
Any over the counter products you would recommend?
Any lifestyle changes?
How does one go about getting it? Especially if you're broke?
How does it feel to have a personality disorder? It gives me something curiosity…
Tell me anon, what does it make you feel?
Tell me your histories.
Regardless of whether hypnotism is real or fake, it seems that acting as though it's real lets me do interesting things, like relax my face and body on command.
I would like to read a quick poem on depression

Tell me what you do for your sleep.
>What time do you go to bed?
>You're taking pills?
>You have habits before bedtime?
I'm always going to bed at 3am, and I fall asleep like 4 or 5 am, I really starting to think that I have a problem.
(Sorry my bad English)
Anyone else here dealing with erectile dysfunction?
I definitely have it now, though I should've seen it coming earlier– I think it came from jerking off too much, I used to do it several times a day just because, y'know, it felt good and was fun. I still check things like exhentai every day just out of habit. I'm without a doubt addicted to porn.
I should see a therapist about it, because my girlfriend definitely isn't a fan of it.
Anyone have any luck with beating it?
Anyone have experience with natural anti-androgens/phytoestrogens/progesterones? Was thinking about trying purera, but I know the success rate isn't always that great, and it needs an androgen blocker to really be effective I hear. Anyone know any? Google turned up a few but there's very little "in the bush" research on it, and not very much academically, either, and any conclusions I can draw are pseudoscience (Oh, Chasteberry increases urine flow in men, must be an antimineralocorticoid!).
Some stuff to get discussion started:
I want to fix my sleep schedule to that of a normal human, what can I do? Every time I try it just goes back
my head's been hurting a lot recently
I'm legitimately curious if any of my fellow chu/bm/en(?) have insightful advice/experience on this topic:
Is there really a point when taking any steps towards any level of 'transitioning' becomes fundamentally a waste of time?
I'm past the third-way point in my life, and I feel like shit; I would never want surgery or anything like that, but when I look into the mirror I see something too far gone to even bother /trying/ to cd, or hell, even start a tailored exercise regimen instead of general fitness. I know people redefine their identity at all sorts of different points in their lives; but I feel that on some fundamental level I *know* it'll never "work," so why even bother? why face that disappointment? Is never knowing the even worse fate, though, I don't know.
For that matter, do any of you have any tricks for dealing with that profound sense of I guess ennui? Ways of normalising and coping with the eternal questioning of oneself; on how to better deal with self-perception, or fuck, even meditation techniques to better understand one's true state of mind, potentiality and desires?
So I'd like to know what, if any, experiences y'all've had wrestling, and any advice you may carry towards the real boots-on-the-ground realities of overcoming or compromising with, any of this. Honest personal insights.
What's the advantages/disadvantages of dip? (aka chew, smokeless tobacco)
What is it like to be fat, my fellow chu/bm/en?

So what are your thoughts on DMT?
Can you classify it as a drug since your body produces it?
I been reading DMT: The Spirit Molecule and its a fascinating read. Really weird that there really is a 3rd eye in your head and it's proven by science now and not just spirituality.
Makes me want to look for the stuff to experience it my self.
Mental and Physical Health.
