Isn’t this entire thing a strawman argument though since it boils down the other side’s beliefs to a mere couple of sentences or doesn’t bother to fully explain it?
Let’s hope they don’t somehow mess it up in the sequel.
Thanks, man. Sorry that I always seem to send you these weird messages. I’m just dealing with a good hunk of anxiety right now and writing it out here really helps me deal with my issues before I do something I regret. One issue bothering me is that I was on DA and scrolling and I was tired and knew that there might be inappropriate artwork but wasn’t there for that and skipped anything that seemed like it. I know it sounds silly, but it’s something that was hounding my mind. That’s for being a bro about this.
Hey. Just checking in to see your progress. Know that sometimes it can be hard and you need to chat with someone. I myself seem to be getting better. The only thing that seems to be bothering me is some seemingly lucid thinking that happened yesterday after waking up & using the bathroom. For some reason I thought of Dragon Ball Abridged and starting making up a joke in my head about Goku telling Vegeta that he should get a Colonic Irrigation to help him be calmer. Anyway, I worried that it was something sexual, but I actually knew the thing wasn’t sexual in nature and somehow still thought about it. I know it sounds ridiculous when writing it out and for some reason my mind was worrying about it even though there was no way it was supposed to be sexual and…um…what was I saying? So anyway the point of the story is
And that’s really all there is to say.
I want this confirmed because the world needs to know about trains being suplexed. Also, this is actually something that has existed for a while now.
Hey man. Glade to see you’re getting better. I’ve been seeing someone about my issue as well and think I’m getting better. The only thing I seem to be worrying about now is clicking to see a video I suspected having sexual content (not for that stuff, but because it was an animated humorous video someone had made) and exiting the first moment there was something sexual. I know that my intent wasn’t sexual, so there’s nothing to be worried about, but my head takes time to catch up. I hope you agree with my position. Thanks, and Godspeed.
Too bad most of democracy is “Start”.
No prob. I’ve been dealing with temptations as well, and I always feel so much better when I don’t give in as it’s a sign of control and victory for my will. Getting better with the scrupulosity thing as well. Had a freakout today, but I think it’s better now. Always remember that if you are feeling tempted, just leave a message on my wall and I’ll respond ASAP. If I’m not immediately there, just look on our past messages and gain hope and inspiration from those.
Hey man. You doing better with progress and such?
I saw it and can say that it was glorious.
Right now they’re stuck in that infernal maze and people KEEP BEING TROLLS AND MAKING THEM START OVER!
Found the page. It’s a joke one, but thanks to Tumblr being idiots they post it as real, just like with Christwire.
Some ponies are really gonna regret getting those pets very soon.
Also, why are these wild animals who live in the forest and live right near one considered pets?
Also, if you find the need to look at anything while on your computer, look at this instead http://www.cutelittlekittens.com/pictures/1.html
Yeah. Also, find other things to do with your time that will keep you occupied, like exercise. I run a whole lot, and that helps me out.
Okay. That’s a start. Find someplace public to use the computer and try not to use it unless needed when alone.
True. It comes down to willpower in the end, which is actually something of a relief when you think about it. When you feel yourself wanting to do it, remember that you DON’T have to do it. Actually, something that could help when you feel tempted is to find someplace quiet and just meditate for a couple minutes. reminding yourself that you don’t have to do something that you regret. After all, you can control yourself in the end when it comes to things like this.
Okay. Here’s what you can do.
First, depending on your browser, download site blockers (Stay Focusd & Blocksite). Then, find pretty much all the porn sites you may be addicted to going to and put them on the list. If there are any sexual terms or things you really like, search for them and then just copy-paste the URL of that site. Make sure that when you block you make it so it blocks for 24/7. If you think you’ll feel tempted to turn the block off, make sure to block the page that actually allows you to turn it off as well.
What is the thing that you usually do that is lust-centered? Specific things might make for giving better advice.
Think about it; what do you really gain in the end? Also, are you aware of when you’re going to make a mistake like that? If so, then remember that nothing you gain from lust is as important as peace of mind and doing the right thing. For me, whenever I successfully resisted something like that I always remembered the scene from Star Wars Episode 6 where Luke goes and tells the Emperor that no matter what he won’t join the Dark Side. Somehow that scene always gets to me and I’m like, “I’ll be like you, Luke.” :P
And you know what else? He’s not even a brony. He doesn’t own anything MLP related.
Hmm. From my experience with things like that, here are several tips. You may have tried them, but here we go:
1. Find the thing that’s most likely to lead to you doing whatever it is. Getting rid of it can be incredibly helpful.
2. Think about the consequences of your actions and think, “Will I probably regret this later on?” If yes, then know that it’s not worth it.
3. Find something to replace idle time. One thing that can help are games like TF2 and League of Legends, both of which are free. Otherwise, just find something that you’d like to do that doesn’t decay quickly.
4. Keep in mind that your temptations will die down the longer you stay away from it. Eventually you won’t think as much about it and can focus on other things.
5. Realize all the time you spend doing something you regret. That alone can change your mind.
Hope that some of these things can work. I’m Catholic, so whenever I feel like I’ve messed up I go to Confession. Talk to a priest if you really feel like things are bad. When that happens, think of it as a reset button and swear to not worry about the past.
P.S. Even though I feel like I know my thing wasn’t anything to worry about, I think I might actually need to hear those exact words (or something like that) to fully calm down. Personally, I think my thing might be because it’s REALLY hard for me to get my head around the idea of neutral.
Thanks. I think that could help. So, what are some issues you feel that you struggle with?
Also, I don’t seem to trust my judgement, which is why I usually ask other’s opinions. Feel like I worry about lying to myself.
