I'd like to recommend a great book. It might help us get over this truck driver, the car that followed the truck and the hilarious reaction and disbelief caught in the video.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

Hey buddy, I have been on both the sides, one half of the college I had the same feelings as you, and other half i was the President,member and had dozens of meetings to attend and conduct.

I think it was a fundamental shift in my mentality where I wanted to take control of my life, instead of just cribbing. Join a club, volunteer somewhere, learn music, but whatever you do - promise yourself that you'll do it for 6 months no matter how much you hate it or it doesn't interest you.

These things matter not because of their value on resume, but building social circles, interacting with people from different places builds your character. And what you've said about depression, hang in there buddy, things always get better.

I would suggest reading this book:

in all seriousness the older you get the thicker your skin so it just bounces off like it's nothing

A few things to ponder:-

  • You can put some distance with your SO but that doesn't mean you abandon him. Say, if you're on a short 2 weeks vacation, are you leaving him? What if it is a 2 weeks retreat? Or you're visiting your parents for 2 weeks?

  • Feelings come and go, feeling failure doesn't mean you don't wake up tomorrow and try alternative ways. Failure is when you stop trying.

  • If you are not happy on your own, how are you going to be happy with others? Who are you when your happiness or success is dependent on one sole purpose or action or achievements?

    When all else fails, try changing your perspective with Mark Manson's book. Quote: " "In life, our f&cks must be spent on something. There really is no such thing as not giving a f&ck. The question is simply how we each choose to allot our f&cks. You only get a limited number of f&cks to give over your lifetime, so you must spend them with care." Top seller in Amazon, #1 in a few categories too. Worth a try!

I was depressed and medicated when I was 18 - 19 then I found hope in myself and resigned to the fact that I control my happiness.

I have some degree of social anxiety caused by hypervigilance but my wife knows how to identify it and keep me from going off the handle, liquor seems to help too not that I condone using booze to suppress cognition. Interesting thing is I'm actually incredibly comfortable in front of large crowds speaking, singing, presenting but put me in a mall, the stampede or on a street downtown late at night and I see and hear everything all at once. It's a great bar trick to be able to cold read someone but it sucks when you are trying to pay attention or enjoy something.

I recently read a book because I was feeling very uneasy about where my life is heading (common problem for our generation) and I felt it really really helped me.

Just figured I'd throw that down, to contribute.
Chin up lads :-)

"The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counter-intuitive Approach to Living a Good Life" by Mark Manson. (link to book)Not exactly a book to help find who you are, but it can help you start thinking differently and might help you discover what you really want to focus on in your life.

u/RealisticKinStudent · 2 pointsr/uwaterloo

I know this isn't a comment you want to read, but tbh dude, just buy this book if you haven't already read it.

I think you have a problem with being self-loathing because you're constantly comparing yourself to other girls. There's a good part in the book the really encapsulates your situation, and I think you'd benefit overall from reading it. It's $12 and it's a short read. Give it a shot.

For my own personal advice, when it comes to diet and exercise, your goal should be to develop habits, not to seek a specific weight. Focus on developing healthy habits (which it seems you are doing good). I find doing that makes me much happier rather than trying to obtain a goal hoping i'll be happier once I reach it.

There's already a book

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

u/op_pollicis · 2 pointsr/india

This Bible might help.

> how does one improve social skills?

Reading some books on how to deal with social anxiety may help. This one has pretty good recommendations. Mark Manson also has an easy to read book.

For myself, I enjoy stoic literature. It's good to know that even during times of hell, you can still find some inner peace in your mind. The point of stoicism isn't to imagine that bad things don't happen, but that you are much more capable of dealing with terrible situations than you would otherwise think.

The Subtle Art of not Giving a Fuck was pretty good. It all felt like common sense to me reading it, nothing was really mind-blowing. But it definitely served as a good reminder.

u/yourownlighthouse · 1 pointr/UBC

By reading this book called "The Subtle Art of not Giving a Fuck"

Edit: I got down votes. ahaha, it's actually a really good book talks about acceptance of failure in a hilarious way. It was recommended by my counsellor. I'd give it a shot because the premise of the book is to look at 'failure' as just adversity and finding, albeit, counterintuitive acceptance of this said 'failure' and how to deal with and move forward in a productive and healthier way.

Ditch the "staying positive" mentality. Nobody feels positive all the time, and if they did it would be quite unnatural and pretty exhausting. We've evolved to experience negative emotions because they're useful (in appropriate situations).

Also ditch the mentality that happy life = problem-free life. Problems are intrinsic to life, there's no getting rid of them, the second you overcome one problem, a new one appears, that's just how life works. And not having any problems at all would actually get pretty boring after a while.

I recommend these two books: Mark Manson's "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck" and Oliver Burkeman's "The Antidote". They sound controversial from the first glance (well, they are), but they will honestly change the way you see life, make you adopt a completely different perspective.

It's been 2 years man, these people telling you Its PPD are silly.

You wife has lost all attraction for you. It happens all the dam time after having a child. It usually happens about 7 +/- a couple years in after the second kid.

If you head over to /r/deadbearooms you will see a version of your story day in day out. The more you try and do what this world tells you to do, communication (yuck), active listening, more help around the house, date nights, compliments, give her more space, it dosent matter, none of it will work.

Everyone trys communication, it's shoved down our throats but it's ineffective for this. If communication actually worked this would never be an issue. In dead bedrooms they have language like "the talk" and it's almost always a disaster. Communication only comes across as begging and it makes you look needy.

Check out this book, it has helped a lot of men turn a situation just like yours around. I warn you though, it's a lot of work. Have a read.

He also has a blog married man sex life. Check it out.

If you want new behaviour to come out of your wife (more sex) then something new needs to come out of you. More of the same is not going to work.

Improve yourself, stop thinking about sex and your wife.

One of the core tenets of this book:

It explains how pursuing things that we want like sex only demonstrates to us a lack of sex.

Forget about sex and work on yourself.

And most of all, NEVER COMPLAIN.

The secret to a great sexlife is more complaining. Said Noone EVER.

I'm leaving the typo on deadbearooms because it's hilarious.
