  • Wow, that was great, good job. There were a couple points where I got some chills. I feel like you have that intangible feature of being able to take a feeling and throw it into a song in a way so anyone really listening feels the same. It's a common quality I notice in the artists I tend to gravitate to, it's a quality in a good artist I think.

    Thanks for sharing :)



    p.s. Great song choice :thumbup:
    No problem, I have to move soon as well. I'm absolutely dreading it.

    That was a very good tune you posted, I wish I was more musically inclined sometimes; maybe I could write some lyrics, but not put music together.

    You're just an introvert, I imagine. You probably don't make enough effort to make friends because you're alright on your own.

    I can relate to feeling like you've been stuck in a room all your life, that's pretty much how I've always felt. Different cities, but still mostly confined to one room.

    I'm going to start therapy again soon, though, and hopefully take a medical coding course and finally get some steady income.

    I'm actually excited about my life for the first time in a long while.
    I think to a certain kind of person, children are the answer to a certain kind of problem: loneliness and self-absorption being the two chief ones. But if you're more of a loner, or you're creative, you already have this kind of perpetual drive inside that sustains you, so you don't need a lot of extra external stuff keeping you afloat.

    I think having children in that case is about the worst thing you can do, for yourself and them.
    It sounds like you've got a good head on your shoulders.

    I know a lot of girls who got married and had kids right out of school and almost all of them are divorced and struggling now. It's so much better to be cautious and live life on your own terms, as funny as that may sound to someone with social phobia.

    I have a cousin who's just 12 now and I used to watch him when he was little. As much as I liked spending time with him, I was so grateful to go home at the end of the day and be by myself again. His mom (my aunt) worked from home and would pretend to be busy upstairs (she was mostly on Facebook) so she wouldn't have to deal with him. Half the time I'd end-up nodding off because all he wanted to do was watch cartoons in front of their giant TV. Whenever a DVD would run-out he'd wake me up to put a new one in.
    I was thinking about getting old too and getting pretty depressed about it, then I remembered something I read a long time ago: "Tomorrow will have problems, but tomorrow will also have solutions."

    Being old is going to suck, but that doesn't mean we won't be happy at times or that we won't be able to cope with it.

    We've learned to live with social phobia, after-all.
    I noticed a trend with your musical tastes: 60's psychedelia. Excellent taste! I'm a nerd for that stuff. The more obscure, the better. If you haven't already, check out July's "My Clown", Mortimer's "Dedicated Music Man" and The Glass Family's "The Means". If you like any of those songs, you'd like the rest of that band's stuff. Happy listening!
    Hi FriendlyShadow, you requested a friendship request and i added you but why if you never talk to me? how are you? how are things going? i don't know anything about you really. After i added you i never saw me in your friend list. Your stored private messages r always full. thank you
    Hi FriendlyShadow,

    I wanted to reach out.

    I've been in your shoes in the past before I conquered my social anxiety and panic attacks. It does get better if you start doing the right things daily in your life.

    Both myself and my clients were in your shoes...felt like we couldn't express ourselves to our family or friends because of judgement or they wouldn't understand. We all want to live independently away from our parents and live the dream life we believe we ought to live.

    I'm an anxiety disorder consultant and I help men and woman suffering from the pains and frustrations of social anxiety and panic attacks to overcome them by a 8 Week Lifestyle Transformation program.

    If you're serious about change, how about we schedule a 45 min strategy session call and see if you qualify for me to help you?

    All the best,
    Jordan

    Ah dang it, I think I may have given you some bad advice. I misinterpreted something you said on a thread you started.
    Hello Shadow, if you weren't friendly, I'd probably be scared enough to leave this message.
