Why not take the extreme stress/pressure away?

There are some cases where that's possible, but mostly it's unavoidable.

Talk to me, my brother. What unavoidable circumstances are you in?

Lol i can do it
Here is, how :
1. Experience with pressure

Is totally possible belive me, you just need training

I mean just in general, I think I'm weak-willed. The moment something goes the slightest bit off script or unexpected, I tend to lose it within myself, breaking down internally, while keeping a facade of security externally.

bump. i'm curious too. i was abused as a child and had social anxiety for a period of time. when i feel there's trouble or a person might be hostile towards me, i shake despite rationally knowing i'm fine.

Sounds like some kind of anxiety. Do you worry a lot about things, e.g. the future?

Yeah, usually after going through some sort issue.

>fucked up an opportunity to get a decent paying
>"McDonalds/fast food place is my only option from here on out"
>hear some bad things that have happen in my neighborhood
>"I may get mugged or killed if I walk home at night"
>failed one course
>"Guess I'm retard who'll soon drop out"
>being rejected while still bring a kissless virgin
>"Looks like it'll be that way until I die"

I'm only 19, yet I'm constantly bringing myself down from this paranoia, thinking my life is ending. I even have some fear that my father will kick me out for being unemployed, despite me still going to school on scholarships and him never giving any sign of that. I just want to live life peacefully in the present, and not be stuck in the past or future.

It sounds like you're a prime candidate for cognitive behavioural theraphy. You already can identify the irrationality of your thoughts and seem quite rational as a person. Try reading the book 'cognitive behavioural theraphy for dummies' by Rhena Branch and see if the techniques described in that book help you. I had a similar thought process as you, always worrying about the future and thinking of extreme situations. CBT showed e how these thoughts were not productive and had no base in reality. So, give it a go. CBT is also a very common therapeuthic method, so if you need help with it you can always see a therapist.

Based Jesus.

could you believe now that i'm 18 my dad tries this bullshit where he tries to be buddies with me? like he wants to feel like a good dad. we're all black too so yea

there's' more too. i was choked by him when i was 9 because my cousin told him i let the hamster poop on the bed. it was a fucking poop pellet i cleaned up, but i guess you deserve to be choked. fuck you guys, you have me thinking about this shit i try to ignore. i try to get over it, but don't i have a fucking right to hate this guy? people are such peices of shit man. how does your own parent do this shit

I rate this story 7/10, please do you have anymore of that drama?

no, it settled down in my teens

so what did you learn from that? I am just curious

idk man. parents aren't gods and are just as imperfect as anyone else. people are inherently selfinterested. i'm not built right. people are likely to hurt me. i'll probably live a shorter life than average. if i have kids i'll probably end up fucking them up. learned a lot of psych and neuro stuff from reading into the damages.

hmmm, interesting, well thank you user for taking your time to entertain me.

Meditation/mindfulness helped me. Observing the physiological reactions without reacting

and thank you for trying to troll. thickens the skin
