Fancy saying something warm and comforting?
i'm in for the night and here if you wanna talk or just know someone's here to listen.
sorry.... DD is probably your best bet as Mrs Knees is expecting her dinner.....and I've accidentally had too much absinthe....so its a bit haywire in the kitchen
I've never been so pissed as when I've had that. Fuck me. I took me an hour to fall up some stairs once only to get to my room to find half of Hull going back to back on my decks playing acid house. Bastards.
Hope you're alright fella. I know what going through shit feels like, it's shit. I can't even really articulate to real humans what it's like it's that shit half the time so big ups and I feel you.
ol' douchie sends his love
and when youre happy it makes others happy to know this :)
There's a sort of bravery in your willingness to be so open about how you're feeling. I know it helps you to do it but I also think people warm to your honesty and this place wouldn't be the same without your contributions.
You bring a smile to lots of faces.
Bam's willingness to be this open is really good. A load of people feeling like crap don't even bother to write in threads like this yet it still helps a little to them to feel a little less outside of it all when someone manages to articulate it a bit. You aint alone Bam.
Especially on the internet but life is too short. I have a lot of flaws...I'm narcissistic, self obsessed, bitter about how my life has turned out and jealous of lots of people. The only way to combat this though is to be open and honest. I'm really quite sad and ashamed of how I've turned out as an adult; I really could have given more to others and have behaved horribly way more than I should.
Every day though I get up and try my best to be a good person, I'm sure many of you know how hard that can be at times.
I think you're way ahead of most people if you can recognise this about yourself; I think you deserve credit for it, not shame.
I guess just try to remember that you can't change the past, but you can try to act better in the future.
you seem like a decent non-trolly genuine sort of fellow, and a lot of people on here have a lot of time for you, so I'd take that as an endorsement of your worth to others - keep well and take care...
Genuinely very touching. I may have more specifics to say about my situation soon(ish) but for now ill just say that I may have to face some very traumatic times and will try to meet them with the courage and dignity that honours those that love and care about me.
I'm terrified that I've lost any talent and enthusiasm I had...I'm scared to pick up my guitar, I keep putting it off, don't want to feel like those days are all behind me.
and your enthusiasm will only come back once you pick it up and realise its all there still!
everyone goes through creative peaks and troughs
Just muck about with it in a different way, make little games with it, different rules, techniques... just muck about no one is judging you for dicking about and something cool might pop out of it. Music is a really mad force that can keep you grounded sometimes when it's feeling mad out there.
But what you're doing when making some music is just for you Bam until you chuck it out there for others to hear, which is on your own timeline and control. It's mad easy to sabotage yourself before you even get that far, it really is. If you make it some kind of game when making something you kind of lose those shackles a bit and before you know it you're happy with something you made.
If it helps. Just do you're thing like. I aint a dude to be taking loads of advise off mind, I've been depressed as fuck for years and have low self esteem out the eyeballs. big up for sharing and being cool like that.
i still spin motivation every few months.
everything will work out in the end. just had a weird bleakness attack myself, had to drive to tescos just to get out of the house, self medicating with cheesecake seems to have done the trick.
For what it's worth I think that you're tremendous and it breaks my heart to think that you can't see it yourself. For all the (totally inspiring) honesty you show in being so open about what you don't like in yourself I really hope that with some time you can get a grasp of all the wonderful things that you are alongside the bad. Like, y'know, a talented, friendly guy who wants nothing more than to be there for those who love him (regardless of motivation, it's actions that count) and wants to improve himself. That is some amazing shit, coupled with the fact that just by being a human being you are of incredible worth! Loads of love coming atcha from Essex, yr a star x
Been awhile. But you're still the best.
You're golden. Keep on going, we're all here for you.*
