Vaguely remember picking up Pokémon Ruby on a GBA-SP as a really young kid. Maybe 2 or 3 years old. Never got to handle a handheld console for another 8 years until I got a 3DS-XL. Nowadays I rarely use it though.


How often do you use public transportation? I always use it, taking the train 12 times a week.
Puzzle
About 10 times a week. 2 times a day. To and from work.

It's a nice 1 hour 30 minute trip one way. 3 hour sink that I just lose. I cant even draw or anything because the rides are too bumpy. It's good for the environment to commute but I cant wait to get a car, I'm tired of wasting so much time out of my day every weekday.

Do you find it easy to keep up relationships? Not romantic ones, but friendships.
Achromalia
...not really.

i have a hard time spending time with everyone. there's a ton of old friends i've yet to catch up with and hardly ever talk to for months. even years.

it's time consuming, but i do enjoy it when i do get the time.

i just wished i had more time, all things considered.

how much stress and misfortune would it take for you to buckle and shut down?

the human mind can only take so much with its sanity. shit sucks.
samX500
It is pretty hard to estimate such a thing because of how foreing the concept truly is if you haven't experienced it,even if you might think you know what you are talking about you are likely wrong. That said, I doubt it would take very much to break me, I would consider myself to be very mentally weak.

it's a bit easier on my end, luckily. i've had enough shit to go through where i don't really find misfortune or fuck-up-ery to be all that surprising or jarring. i mostly just put up with everything however i can, see to it that i can finally create what i've envisioned, and try to make sure my family lives. that's about it, i guess.

i think, if anything, my immediate family would have to be killed off by some stupid fucked-up shit, and i'd have to be left with no means of making what i love, with no hope of getting anywhere with what i have.

at that point, i think my mind would just shut down, i'd be blank. i'd probably succumb to apathy, unfortunately.

because that's the one point i'm trying to avoid.

i need to see things through.

i can handle a death or two, and i can handle being kicked out, as long as i have some means of making art or music. i can handle not having a laptop or desktop, as long as i know i can crawl out somehow financially or have someone i can rely on.

Suffering in itself is not a bad thing. Rather, there are people who deliberately seek out suffering for themselves.
Humans can overcome almost any misfortune, stress or suffering, and improve from them. Negative impacts can result in positive outcomes.

It's the thought of suffering without any purpose or meaning is what breaks people.
I'm not sure how much would it take for me to "buckle and shutdown", but if it's for the betterment of myself then I will endure. Or at least, I'd try to.
Like it or hate it, the hardships of life helps to shape the person you are today too.
Overcoming life's hardship is almost like getting to know yourself better in that sense.

I've been there. It's hard to put into words. I'd have to describe the situation and it's too personal and there was *too much* so I wont go into a lot of detail.

I was 16. I had chronic depression because of a string of awful events in my childhood. A lot of my mental and emotional state was tied to a girl I was in love with. She broke up with me. Easily the worst emotional pain I've experienced in my life. It literally felt like someone had jabbed a knife into my chest. I shut down. I have about 3 months where I dont remember anything that happened. Memories just gone. I know I was going to school because my grades didnt tank too hard. The only thing I do remember about that period of time is I rebounded to some other girl because I was young and stupid and she broke up with me too after like 1 month and I've never really been the same after that. Was too much for me.

Not to say that was the only reason it happened. To really get it youd have to understand my childhood which is way too much. Long story short, my life had been completely fucked till that point and I really felt like I needed these people for support. This was more the straw that broke the camel's back than the real kicker. I mean, it did kick pretty fucking hard. Losing someone you love is brutal. But it wasnt the main reason why I shut down.

So yeah, I dunno. A lot. It's hard to describe. But for a couple of months there I really did shut down. The few memories I have from that period of time are lying in bed and being hurt, a few memories with this other girl, her breaking up with me too, and then just nothing. I dont have any idea what happened those months, I had no friends who could tell me what I was doing, and I'm too sensitive about it to ask my family. I'm surprised I even kept going to school though I'm sure I probably skipped a few days. Or maybe I didnt, who knows? Anyway, I think it was the catalyst to me really learning how to shut off my emotions (and struggling with figuring out how to turn them back on again.)


What are some things that you have in your life right now that make you happy?
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Quite a few I guess. Friends, games, music, and mangas

I used to be really depressed too (although arguably, I still am now) so I think I can understand how it felt.
I'm just glad that you're still fine. Keep focusing on your hobbies and your job.

Push on, Puzzle.
Don't you dare go hollow.

OT: Right now, I wouldn't say that I am unhappy but I guess you can say that I am unsatisfied with my life atm.
I am still surrounded by other people's achievements. I just want to earn something that I could proudly call mine.

I don't really own anything that I think makes me happy. I don't really seek out happiness in the first place, I feel like seeking out happiness is something unhealthy for you since you need to spend a lot of resources to get it and that can backfire and make you unhappy, I try to only be satisfied and only seek happiness if it is easy and safe to get. If there is one thing I could say it would be that I am very fortunate with how my life is going and I doubt I would have been able to support suffering a tragic event like I have seen many people on these forums talk about. Though that is a double-edged sword since by having a very fortunate life, I am extremely unprepared to face life and all of the event that are going to happen there.

i have the ability of acting on my affinities for music and art, being able to create things that i envision.

i have the ability to access and experience the amazing shit people create, getting to immerse myself within entire fictional worlds.

i have people i can talk with and express myself to that can actually withstand my philosophical drivel and idiotic shenanigans.

i have a father that is... supportive enough, somewhat, that he's alright with taking some time to listen and look at the things i create.

i have a bit of hope to overcome apathy, and to ensure that my family and I can manage life safely, the hope that i can actually do this.

what do you appreciate about what point you're in with life?
Puzzle
A lot. I make good money (and I'm going to start training to actually do repairs on aircraft parts soon so I should end up making more) and I have a good job. That really facilitates me to be able to pursue the things I want - mainly being an artist. That makes me relatively happy, though I really need to get a freaking car. Still waiting on that.

I guess that's all, which is a lot less than I expected. But it leaves me feeling satisfied. Every single day is progress. That adds up over time. I'm slowly becoming a better artist. Saving up money. Working myself to have a nice career and hopefully soon I'll have a car which means a lot more time to chase what I want.

So, yeah. While I'm not bursting with happiness right now I'm definitely satisfied and moving forward.

i generally appreciate my rather positive mindset for someone that has mood swings. mood swings are probably more stress related, which i am glad it isn't something more worse than that.

i also enjoy the weird personality i got for now. i don't really think anyone really wants to be the awkward person, but i somehow do. its kind of like i am accepting myself as a person... i don't know...

i just... appreciate living, because this world has so much to offer. there are a lot of interesting stuff to see... even if that means new levels of stupidity...

that I come home earlier than my parents, yeah I'm already suffering so much so I can't imagine what it would be like when I'm an adult

when was the last time you kissed someone? suddenly thought of this when I realized I haven't kissed my parents for a month now
Achromalia
years ago, though i don't really recall any exact time period.

the good old days of kissing your parents goodnight as a kid.

that's about it.
