Post what you cannot say

Do you think it's possible to just throw ones self into it all and hope to swim rather than sink? Like, wtf, bring it on Titanic arms, spray in face type of let the chaos ensue, what's the worst that can happen kind of a thing? Maybe it would lead to permanent trauma or jail or something though :thinking:

Edit: I just remembered it's called 'exposure therapy'?

Well, if you talking about being social and overcoming fear, then yeah. But if it's anything like my dysfunctional family situation, then it's the "F*ck it! Bring on the chaos, don't care anymore" mentality. :thumbdown:

I'd prefer to live in a fantasy world over this real one.

I really would.
I've seen on other forums before where users start a kind of "RPG" (role playing game). Forum members select their own character from a genre of video game or movie/TV show and start interacting with other "characters" in the thread. So it's like a never ending story. I've thought of starting something like that on SPW but I never got the courage.

That sounds really interesting Tamale! I'd be keen to at least join in and give it a go. Do you have any ideas as in the setting, time etc?

A series with a whole bunch of characters obviously, cartoon or real life setting? Is everyone familiar with Star Wars or Disney Movies? Everyone knows about those characters in movies by now. I also didn't want to make it because members posts on the forum can be weeks apart sometimes and that could cause problems with the story line.

Yes I'm familiar with star wars (who isn't lol). I love that setting.

I've just been to see 'The Last Jedi' in 3D.. I have to say it was awesome!

sounds a bit like a cross between virtual larping and a virtual d&d game

I'm Han Solo, I know that.
 
How many more months or years of my life d'ye want me to waste, eh? :thumbdown:

I'm getting fed-up being burden with your problems. I know it means f*ck all but I've got my own issues. Ye think ah f*ckin' enjoy being the scapegoat and the son you should've raised, but ye couldnae be arsed to. Cuz you werr to busy spoiling the middle child who aspires to an upper class lifestyle, and still behaves like a teenager. Great job there, Mum. And ya wonder why me n' her don't get along...

Here's a hint: Ah don't see myself as better or smarter than anyone else. If anything, most folk are better and smarter than me. Oh! And ah huv'nae forgot how to be grateful for what ye have...
 
You don't know what it's like to be me. It's lonely and scary. I have a lot of unresolved pain. You take for granted how uncomplicated it is for you to just be yourself. You don't have to worry about projecting what you think others are thinking or saying about you. I have to struggle every day with the simple task of just saying hello to a stranger.
 
Why d'you pick the most awkward time to discuss things with me, huh? Every-f*ckin'-time ! So, now ye want to talk about me moving out n' why ah shouldnae dae it?! Piss off! Ah gave you plenty o 'chances, and actually try to breach the topiv but... Naw ! A scowl n' the silent treatment from you as per feckin' usual! :thumbdown:

"Oh, but Graeme, I'll change. I'll be a better person. Please, ah promise ye!"
Bit too late for that, isn't it? Considering how, for the last 15 f*ckin' years, I've repeatedly told what needs to change - basically told you how to be a parent. But ya didnae bother yer arse to listen tae me.

Nope! Ya, either, just glared at me, as if that wus gonnae make me crap ma breeks. Or ya made excuses that sounded a lot like promises... that you weren't going to keep anyway

Ah gave you more chances than ya actually bloody deserved. And you wasted 'em ! Ya just gave me the same old, pathetic "Woe-is-me", self-pitying, manipulative, horse$h!t speech every time. Breaking down in tears to make it seem like ah wus in the wrong... :crying:

You made it all about you - not that that surprises me. :eek:mg: :kickingmyself:

Stop doubting and contradict me... If you believe I'm the more "sensible one" then please show me that courtesy, eh? Ah only mock yer intelligence cuz you huv a habit of saying dumb stuff - and yer hair colour...

Oh, and would it be too much to ask for you to be more positive, huh? Or do I need to contract HIV just so I'm only one in this family who's positive? :bigsmile:

Is "Ah don't know" :idontknow: your go-to answer for every question I ask you? :eek:mg: :kickingmyself: Cuz I'm getting really fed-up hearing those words all the time. Sorry, but yer not exactly helping change my opinion of you as a parent or redemption yersel', Mum. Maybe it's not the colour of yer hair, it could be in the genes. And not yer trousers... Sorry, the "Dad jokes" are my only means of coping at this point. Booze does bugger all.

Though, I am contemplating writing a comedy show to take up to Edinburgh in a year's time. :thinking: Cuz this family... Sod write material, making stuff up or exaggerating for comic affect, I just need to talk about what it's like growing up with a family that mental. That's the great thing about actual dysfunctional families, the comedy just writes itself.
 
I am getting really tired o' you and this bull$h!t... :veryangry:

Ya never listen to me. Ye f*ckin' mope, ya play the victim to try n' gain sympathy n' feel sorry fur yersel'. Yer quick to take umbrage whenever me or yer other 2 bairns call you stupid and openly question your intelligence. But yer always f*ckin' quick to chime in with your opinion on any decision ah make fur masel' when ah didnae ask you. And how it's "stupid", "pointless", "No worth it", etc.. But oh, it's a different story if ah say summit negative. :thumbdown:

Ye do realise I'm the one keeping this clan of Jeremy Kyle Show applicants together, right? Believe you me, ah take on more responsibility for this family than you ever will. Or d'ye think ah actually enjoy having put myself last cuz I'm always making for the fact you're lazy? Making sure stuff gets done. :kickingmyself: Ye think ah like having do stuff myself, because none o' yous bother yer arses to help me when asked, unless I ask more than once.
 
Why, why should I get along wi' you lot? Considering how this family has treated me over the year, gimme a reason? Ye seriously expect me to get along with someone who has not only resent me ma whole life, but flee into a rage at hearing a different opinion? Ha! Nay chance... and ya say I'm unreasonable.
