Rain does some major calming on my psychological state.
I often find Rain Sounds on Youtube and listen to it for as long as possible. β˜•οΈπŸͺ 🌈

Going to Google why rain is so incredibly calming to some people's mood....
It used to soothe me, but after living in a place that floods, then where I live now which can flood a bit and where the roof leaks a bit in heavy rain, I've developed a bit of a complex around rain (and wind!) o_O:LOL:
 
I like rain because it means nobody's gonna call and ask me to do anything.

I never thought that it could be good for people because of that reason.
That can be my "you learn something new everyday" fulfilled for today, ticked off. (y)


I also just discovered an actual benefit of having 0 friends/really close family/associates in life............I never have to worry about anyone ringing me and asking me to do anything!! :D

It's dawning on me, that I'm not doing better, it's just that I just gave up. Life is a cakewalk once you say fuck it.

Yeah, I FEEL better because there's a lot less stress and anxiety, but it comes at the cost of sitting still while everything and everyone is passing me by.
Honestly though, sometimes you have to sit still in order to go forward. Because sitting still allows you to figure out where you want to go and enjoy your own company instead of keeping up with everyone else. Once I finally took on this mentality last year for college, the last two semesters have been a lot less stressful on me. Even now with graduating, I couldn't care less about what everyone else is doing after. I do me, and I know what I want.

You do you, Fountain. What you're saying doesn't sound like giving up to me.

I was gonna say similar to Phoenix, sometimes you gotta sit and catch your breath in life. When you're ready you can get back up again and give it another try, maybe with a different direction or purpose in mind

In my experience, the existential angst of doing nothing, of not putting good effort into life, inevitably became unbearable; I decided recently that the only way I'm ever going to be happy is if I face and defeat my fears, to push through them. It's a work in progress. I'm of the belief that we only get one life. We can either do something with it or do nothing with it. Better to do something with it... to push through our toughest challenges with the belief that our spirits are indomitable. The time will pass anyway.

Since I've been working full time, I've actually had to make an effort to remind myself of the bigger scope of things. Before I decided to drown myself in work and adult life, I'd always look up into the night sky, at least 3 times a week, and remind myself how tiny the human race is, how tiny our planet is, and how terrifyingly awesome the cosmos really is.

I literally had to remind myself to look at the sky this weekend--as I've somehow completely forgot about it--being that my thoughts have been enveloped by work and my tiny, localized ape worries.

Sometimes you have to realize and then accept that everybody is lying. It has become the corporate culture even or perhaps especially within organizations that are out there to help you. You can look them in the eyes and think your lying to me. The trouble with this is that to survive you have to become a player. Let them lie as long as you get what you want. OK, it works like that but it is deceitful and after a while it wears you down. You end up becoming deceitful yourself.
