I have run into a very rare and unusual problem for me.

ya see, it snowed a crap ton yesterday, in something called a Bomb Cyclone

https://www.denverpost.com/2019/03/14/colorado-strongest-storm-record/

and it just absolutely messed up all the roads, and all the things and places i usually go to were closed down. So i got to stay at home yesterday and today

however, I just finished a project that i've spent the last 4 months making, and i had no pressing homework or things that were necessary for me to do. i tried doing some kung fu inside, but i can only do small bursts as i wait for my chest to heal fully

so it left me in a unique predicament for me.

I had all the time in the world, and nothing to do...

i mean, in all honesty i have plenty to do. there are games i have, books i can read, videos online to watch, movies and shows i can catch up on. I had plenty to "do". but i tried doing some of them, and instead of feeling content, i felt agitated and moved away from them.

so i've just been antsy and not very mobile, and i certainly don't want to go anywhere right now because of the mess that is outside

so i was hoping y'all can keep me company or something! tell me what's going on in your world!

any cool projects you are working on?

have you ever had sphagetti sauce on rice?

Oh no, it's for realsies. I think the next time I was on Ponyville you made a thread role playing as a call center representative, so it probably seemed like a joke (look at us now, though!). And in fairness, it can be very hard to tell when I'm being serious about something, but such is the price I pay for satirical deadpan.

It sucks, though. It's the first injury I've had that's probably going to affect me for the rest of my life. It feels weird, like a form of death. And I did it to myself, dude. I'm a psycho. Life is some tapestry.

definitely fooled me! i thought you were just having a laugh with me, and given that i am a fighter, thought it was just a way to make a nod to me. sorry i didn't take your injury seriously dude :PP

hey man, it will be alright. It may affect you a little bit, but it will heal, and you will survive.

it's actually interesting, because it reminds me of a real conditioning training that i have read about for kung fu training. They would purposefully break your knuckles and then have it heal in such a way to be more durable while punching. Then after it heals, you would practice punching non-stop with that hand until it fractured again, and then heal it again. and just repeat like that.

your punch would be super deadly.however they recommend using your off hand, because it's basically unusable for anything else other than punching for the rest of your life.

but you didn't go that far, so i wouldn't worry too much about it dude

cheetah would be fun!

and fun fact! cheetahs in captivity are naturally very anxious, so they would actually bring puppies in to grow up with them to help play and make them feel less anxious, and they become friends for life!

I just wonder if trying to say "uf you feel overwhelmed by social phobia or social anxiety and thus feel drained of motivation by it, tell yourself it's okay to feel like that and as frustrating and depressing such things can seem, tell yourself it's okay and that's it's all just a practical problem".

I sometimes wonder though if it is a matter of social phobia or just a matter of depression. Like, he's often talked to me about feeling like he's got no passion in life, and oftentimes wonders how people find any sort of passion in life, and I sometimes wonder if that means he's depressed, but then on the other hand, he did once express regret that he had majored in accounting and not biology, which makes me wonder if he does in fact have potential passions and is basically just lying to himself, as if he won't accept that he has any passions, if they are not the "correct" passions, or if he won't recognize them as passions if they don't seem to overwhelmingly drive him in the directions in life that they would for other people. I  mean, I can list a lot of things he has interest in based on frequent topics of conversation we have had over the years, primarily things like critically acclaimed movies (he's certainly a bit of a movie buff) as well as music, and he finds religious philosophy pretty interesting as well, and he likes to talk about science topics quite a bit, he's big into hobby gaming and used to like going to game stores for tcg tournaments with some of our other mutual friends when we all still lived in San Antonio. I think it's pretty obvious that he does have a lot of interest, and he's far less fickle than me when it comes to these things. And yet ... it seems like he thinks he has no passions in life, which just makes me wonder if it's some form of denial.

>>927785
i can believe it is a bit of both. i maybe reading too much into it, but it seems to me that he grew up in a situation where going into accounting and these "expected" directions gave him the idea to follow what he believed were passions, even if they weren't. and because of that he has fooled himself into believing that he has accomplished those parts, but then the reality hit of how hollow that victory was for him. I don't doubt that he has passion, and i believe they are real, but he's probably so used to disconnect those passions with what he believes are the real paths in life, that he doesn't acknowledge that they are ways for him to find himself and his happiness again.

it's a messy process, but a lot of social pressure and expectations can force that seperation of actual desire for what is good for the self, and what is expected for them to do

I know that feeling all too well really. I get it constantly despite having podcasts, videos and comics I should be doing. Probably as a resutl of feeling like nobody cares about them anyway.

That's pretty similar to what I thought for a long time, but it also doesn't really make much sense ... or at least there seems to be some part of the picture missing here. As far as I can tell, from the few times I met and talked to his parents, I don't get the idea that he was raised in such a way to see his interest as "improper" or "not legitimate" like, I think his parents always come off as the kind of people who would have encouraged him to purse any path in life, so long as it made him happy, and like, his Dad once joked about how he can make himself feel guilty about anything (and say it in such a way that made it seem like he was trying not to let it show that this habit was really concerning to him). So I don't know how my friend got it into his head that his interest couldn't be "real" passions or how he got it in his head that he was "supposed" to purse a more traditional and more traditionally respectable career in college.

I think if I understood that, then maybe I could better figure out the best thing to say that might change his attitude and maybe help motivate him out of fear of pursuing his own passions as passions instead of just "silly hobbies" (my words, not his)

>>927794
it may not have been his parents, but rather other family, or maybe school and media at the time influencing what he thought. or maybe this friend of yours had a way of internalizing things to extremes, and the parents were not even aware of it. And parents can seem different when other people are around. i don't know, but i can believe a lot of different things.

the only thing that i have is just how you describe him to me. and it seems that he has believed life is best lived in one way, but his heart and mind do not agree. causing a dissonance

Perhaps, perhaps his perspective has changed in the past few years. I don't really know how he thinks about it anymore. Before he left for Virginia, we had a conversation over DMs where he expressed that he felt like the entire past decade of his life was a mistake, so I don't know. I need to reread the content of that email. I'm just considering the possibility that some of his ways of thinking in the past had become habitual and that that might mean he could fall back into them.

The most concerning part about the content of this email, while not being that depressing or even all that negative is that it's like he's confessing that he has feelings for me.

Which just makes replying to this all the more complicated.

He says stuff like how, looking back on the past 20 years, he sees me as the friend of his he identifies with most and that's why in retrospect he's considers me to be the best friend he ever had, as he sees a lot of himself in me and a lot of me in himself,  and as such, he thinks about me a lot, despite the fact he rarely reaches out to anyone to talk these days. This email is clearly an attempt to reconnect to me and Thorax, and the fact it comes off as a confession of feelings just makes it so much more complicated ...
