Hope this site helps you.
How are things in Japan?
Heyas Nyan, you aren't useless or any of that, it's just in your head. Many of us think those thoughts, we've just programmed our minds towards negative self-talk. As Remus mentioned, CBT is imo one of the best ways to reprogram your mind for nicer self-talk =D
Anyways you'll like these forums, good luck!
Welcome to the forum.
I understand how you feel.... I also have big problems being around people.
I lived in Tokyo from 2004 to 2005... I lived in Minami-Azabu, Minato ku... I love Japan
I don't know what CBT is. My doctor adviced me to gather experience of small success one by one. but i don't know what to do. I can't stop thinking I can't do anything well.
I don't have any courage to find a job.
I can't stop thinking negatively like "I'm useless." "nobody likes me." "people laughed at me."
Hi, is anyone there?
Well, I'm from Japan too.
I'm 39year old female. I have SA for a long time.
It might sound weird, but I sometimes feel much easier when I talk about my problems in English than in Japanese.
I'm new here and I hope that I can get some ideas to make my life better.
Some time ago I saw an american who have been working in Japan for 20 years now saying that it's actually hard to speak about your feelings and stuff like that in Japanese, because of how people usually try to be as concise as possible when speaking to each other in Japan and how the Japanese language doesn't have many words for that. Would you agree with him?
Great two people within walking distance. So both of you can meet up and stop caring about life's nonsense, and get along.
Hurrray everybody is happy
Hello and welcome.
There are two things I like in Japan : Pokémon and Karate.
As for SA, I've heard that japanese society is quite different, as an example: effeminate men in japan wouldn't stand out as much as they'd do in western society.
Thanks for your reply.
Yeah, your friend is right.
Well, about the difference between Japanese and English, I think Japanese langugage gets sometimes too vague, too subtle, or very indirect when you wanna describe your feelings.
As a native Japanese speaker, sometimes I feel English works better when I explain my feelings or what it's like to have SA, English is more direct I guess.
My English is nothing perfect, but I think language is interesting that way.
