Lately, I've been struggling with keeping a positive attitude and continuing on being productive in these trying times. In the spirit of this, I decided to make a thread about the battle for constant self-improvement! I saw an anon on /fit/ recommend this guide, and read through it. It was very brusque but I did find a lot of parallels between my life and that of failure avoidance tactics that we either conciously or unconciously employ.


Do any of you anons have any similar resources/experiences/advice?

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?

guys its not his fault, he probably just came from 4chan. give him some time to assimilate
plus, our arguments probably sound pretty stupid when you step back and look at it lol


Is this site being advertised on 4chan? I sure hope not. I mean, maybe on slower and calmer boards like /ck/ or /an/, MAYBE.


Good luck my dude I truly mean that from the bottom of my heart.

Last night was… bad… I had a psychotic episode and I called a friend I hardly know 23 times. I don't even remember what dumb shit I said to get.

I woke up this morning and found a sticky note on my bed telling me to call her when I was feeling better. I stressed out about calling her but I eventually manned up and called her. It went… Shockingly well, actually. So well that I've actually got a date lined up for Saturday. Life is funny.

That's not the right face, silly billy. Thanks for reminding me about this thread, though.


>I'd take the help of a human being over that of a person who needs to look at my name in the file every week as is paid to drug me.
If your problems can be solved by somebody being nice to you you don't need a psychiatrists help. They're not your friend, they're a professional


By that logic, psychiatrists are just (insect) people pretending to be nice. NOW QUIT FUCKING FIGHTING. This thread was supposed to be comfy.


>got a kiss
>got another kiss

Omg!!!! Anon, that's great!!! Kissing is so wonderful, I swear. It's so much more than just sexual gratification, it's like…fulfilling and soothing. How exciting! Best of luck, anon. Relationships get tough to manage because the issues get less and less visible as time goes on, but it will all be a learning experience in the end.


thanks anon

I read once that if you go deep enough through your anus, you can reach the spleen.
Suposedly massaging the spleen internally grants an incredibly intense sensation, like a constant orgasm that doesn't run out.
Couldn't find any info on Google, i doubt there's any truth to it, but i'm still curious nonetheless, have you guys ever heard anything about it?

I'm not feeling good.
5 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Not OP, but I've had the flu for two weeks before. It was a really nasty case that almost killed me a few years back. I got hospitalized over it. I had never been so sick in my entire life.


idk if thats the flu… that's pneumonia!


OP here. Got out of the hospital last night. I went in thinking I had pneumonia (had started to exhibit all the symptoms, really). It was pretty quick as far as ER visits go and everything was free (thank god). I have bronchitis though and they did find a small number of solid particles in my lungs as well. I've been feeling a lot better since.


glad you're ok, anon


When I was hospitalized they ran some tests and confirmed it was the flu. Unless they are just incompetent and was wrong. Wouldn't surprise me, the hospital here really sucks.

That's good that you're doing better. What do you plan on doing once you're back to 100%?

I searched all boards, and was surprised to not find a thread for tulpas considering the imageboard we're on. I'm sure a few of you should have one though, so let's share and discuss everything associated with tulpas and tulpa creation.

If anyone isn't familiar with this, a "tulpa" is an entity created by meditation and imagination, which splits off your own consciousness in your mind and learns to act, feel, and think independently as its own personality. It becomes very much like a real person that talks to you and you experience life with it, but it's different from an imaginary friend in that it's sentient. With enough concentration and practice you can eventually superimpose your tulpa onto your own subjective reality and feel it with all five senses like a real person. A "wonderland" is an imaginary world that you construct in your mind to hang out in with your tulpa, scenarios can begin unfolding there on their own if you learn how to get into a hypnotic state via meditation and it's not unlike dreaming. As for dreams, you can meet your tulpa there and experience the dream together like a multiplayer game. This is just a simple explanation, and there's also lots of other stuff that you can do with your tulpa, but most other people make them at least for some kind of companionship.

For those of you who have tulpas, tell us about:
>who they are, what they're like, what they look like
>your wonderlands, what goes on there
>their creation/development process, how long it's been
>what your life is like with them, how it changed for you because of them
>whatever interesting experiences or problems you had and anything else you wanna share

Thank you thats actually really reassuring. I struggle so bad with focusing. that i can barely force her for a minute or two but if i go on a walk i can talk to her for hours. I don't know what it is or why my mind works this way.

I'm gonna continue to force her and ive decided to walk this path by the mantra of "Not a project: A PERSON" and i hope that leads to her being more human (as human as a pony princess can be). Is your tulpa active and vocal?

i just recently passed the one month mark of the three-six month journey.


I've been slowly reviving my tulpa. She's active and visible. She's not yet vocal again, but I have high hopes.

What do you usually talk about? Do you come up with topics spontaneously or what?

>I'm gonna continue to force her and ive decided to walk this path by the mantra of "Not a project: A PERSON" and i hope that leads to her being more human (as human as a pony princess can be). Is your tulpa active and vocal?

That's what I do too. My tulpa isn't active or vocal anymore, every time I start forcing it again, my life takes a turn for the bad, and I'm too stressed or anxious to think about it.

>i just recently passed the one month mark of the three-six month journey.

Don't set time limits, you'll just make it harder on yourself. Some people's tulpas don't appear for years.

>come up with topics spontaneously or what?
Usually yeah I do just come up with whatever’s on the top of my head. I’ll talk about the weather, my mood, media that I think that she’ll like, philosophical concepts, what I think college will be like when I go after this summer, how I perceive her personality to be. This is all while I’m partly visualizing her to my right trotting alongside. That and I personally invited her presence to walk with me by talking to her. I make it a goal to not bring my phone so I don’t have distraction and I make it a goal to try to talk to her the entire time. I can usually get up to about an hour of continuous passive forcing. I still feel really ditzy while I do it however. Today I like… felt my reality slip? I all of a sudden feel really small and off balance and I didn’t feel like what I was saying while I was talking to her made any sense. It was worrying.

>vocal anymore

I’m sorry, I hope your life straightens put enough for them to come back to you anon. This is also what worries me. I believe that once she’s vocal it will be a lot easier for me to keep her around and keep her present, because I won’t just just lose interest. I get headpressures when I’m talking to her, but it’s not the same as someone going “mhm” and “yeah” with obvious interest, or even adding new stuff to the conversation. But what if my life just kinda moves past her and I can’t continue to pay her attention? I don’t know… it’s an ethical conundrum.


Hit character limit
>don’t set time limits
I really know I ought not to, but I do anyway. I’ve justified to myself that I set those time limits so that if the time comes and I still haven’t made any significant breakthroughs with her that I need to /really/ step up my tulpaforcing game and grind.

This is going to be an interesting journey — I got emotional today talking to Luna, saying how this worries me. Reality is such a feeble thing to me and I know how fragile reality it is and I feel like I’m sacrificing the integrity of my reality for companionship. I voiced this to her and I hope she understands that I’m scared. I want to meet her, know her but I don’t want to lie to her and tell her that everything is hunky dory

Bottling only makes it harder.
This thread is intented for people who would like to rant and write out their feelings.

It's possible to just spill everything in the textbox, explain it detailed or even write poems/haikus or stories, whatever your want.
You can give yourself a time- or character limit if you feel overwhelmed with writing down all that is going on.
You may also ask for advice or similiar.

It's hard to keep up a happy face, don't hide under a mask in order to lie to yourself.
Be honest with yourself and your feelings, that's the first step towards self improvement.

3) Not learning my lesson. It's easy to say "oh yeah, there's a deadline coming up, I should do it." Ever since then, though, I've been realizing that I never actually learned my lesson. Every time, I always get bailed out. I almost didn't make it into a camp for the summer, almost didn't get the mark I wanted, but everytime, I would have an "oh shit" moment that catapulted my ass into actually doing what I was supposed to have done. As I grew older, I found it increasingly hard to make that happen.

For three years, I made halfassed attempts at making the nationals team for various science olympiads, biology and chemistry. I would just drown my pain in more internet.

Now, I'm dealing with the aftermath of not growing up. At heart, I'm still a little kid, always looking to avoid hardship and pain. I see the people I went to camp with going to the Ivy League, and I'm nearly certain to go to a state school(I think the program historically had 85%+ going to an Ivy/Ivy+ institution). I see them set on being aerospace engineers, biomedical, even one girl who got into a BS/MD program who's going straight into med school.

But all I am is nothing. I still am not sure what I'm going to become. I enrolled as a biochemistry major, sure. Beyond that? I can still transfer schools, and am probably going to grad school. (You see that? I don't even know what I want to end up becoming.) Doctor? Researcher? Professor?

I feel like shit because if I had some idea of what I wanted to do, and had the willpower to get that done, I would be in the clear by now. But I'm not. I'm just me, and I am so sick of it.

Sorry for dropping this here on a Thursday. Please, if you have anything at all to say, send me a message.

Anon, did you make resolutions for the new year? Goals you want to follow? Bad habits to get rid of, good habits to get used to? This is the thread for discussion and sharing experience.

Note: Resolutions are not unique to new years. This thread is about the discussion of every goal we try to achieve in this year. If you started a day or a month into 2020, no worries. We would still like to hear what you have to say.

Mine are:
>Reduce fast food, once in 4 weeks (last time I went on the 28th so I can't go sooner than the 25th this month)
>Greatly limit internet time to 2h (using the internet for work does not count)
>Start the day by reading
>No sodas or alcohol
>Drink 4 of water every day

Remember not to beat yourself up by saying things like "Everyone breaks their resolution." or "Same shit every year.". Attitudes like this keep one stuck in the mud. Getting rid of such negativity can be the first goal.
If you rebound, you haven't failed. Losing track of your goal is the only way to fail so keep going and mind your actions.

This thread was made in 2020 but counts for all years after too.

you could make a logo and layout and stuff, copy write it, and sell it to a website designer.
Make a name, a color scheme, a logo, ect..
its something to do and you could make bank
just remember if you do sell it so sell it for a set amount of money and a percentage of the earnings, ie. 5%

Anon, this may come off as the last suggestion you may have thought of hearing but I know a site that caters to images of all kinda, low to high brow, entirely depending on the user's choice.

It is possible to make a quiet blog, only follow other blogs that post images or reblog them and not have much in terms of "social"-media. The website is flawed and has a (partly justified) bad rep but unlike all the other webspaces I've seen it allows for a very peaceful and homely experience.
It has a tagging system that allows you to add certain tags to posts to make it easier to find on a blog.

I hope you may find a place of rest to enjoy peace of mind.
I love Simberg too.

That's actually an interesting suggestion that I hadn't thought of. I had tried using tumblr in the past, but I found it difficult to navigate and search through things, and even nice blogs often tended toward endless series of reblogs so you couldn't find out where it came from if you wanted more.

That said I think it's probably a good idea to try it out again. Thanks anon.

Yeah, Simberg is great, bright and comfy while also being somewhat melancholic and nostalgic at the same time.


OP back for a monthly update.
The hardest by far is the internet consumption. I have decided upon a different strategy with which I hope to eventually reach a point of little to not waste of time.

Instead of counting the hours, I forbid myself from going to the internet before noon. The week after, before 1PM. Then 2PM. Then 3PM. And so on,

There will be days when I have to check something earlier obviously but I think with this approach I might do better than up until now.


I'm also trying to formulate a plan with internet consumption. I'm trying to limit myself from getting on websites that take up more time and working my way down my bookmarks and try to space everything out that way I'm doing more. It's very difficult as I am almost certain I have autism with how difficult choices are on me when there's infinite ones of them with what websites to use and what communities to be a part of. But I'm trying to work on my selective process and my decisive skills.
