That's it! I AM GOING IN!!! [Adv. or opinions] Empty That's it! I AM GOING IN!!! [Adv. or opinions]

Post by Guest on Thu May 21, 2015 7:48 pm

After reading the Doc's articles over and over to ease my recent depressive episode, I have decided to do what maybe the stupidest thing I have ever done: Go up and talk to the cute MP. I am giving myself one last chance, one moment to just break out of my fucking spiral. I HAVE HAD ABOUT ENOUGH OF MY OWN BULLSHIT!!! I would sum up my social and dating lie in one comparison: The Imperial Japanese Navy post-Midway, failure after failure. I am going to go for one last chance. One final sortie. Forget about the past and do not think about the future. I am putting dates, sex, marriage, whatever aside, I will go with the intention of saying "hello" and that's it. I know I am not in the best mindset to talk to her but I have to connect with someone, who knows? maybe I earn a friend.

I am going in!! to me, This will be like Operation Ten-Go, I am the Yamato, she is Okinawa, I know it is a suicide mission but I am going in anyway!! I don't care if I sink on the way there, I AM GOING IN!!




(Just imagine the American planes as my anxieties and insecurities.)

There are never last chances, it's just a conversation, but good on you for deciding to take a chance.

Saying hi and not thinking of the future is a great goal! Give it a try, and don't forget to count it as a win if you do! And if it's stressful or you don't land up getting to see her, or if you don't feel like it went as well as you would have liked, be sure to give yourself some comforting R&R time afterwards, because you're doing something that scares you a lot, and that ain't nothing!

ETA: And Alex, because you know that this is something that hits some big emotional buttons for you (even if you're trying not to worry about those things), be really, really sure to watch for jerkbrain or self-destructive thinking afterwards (even if things go really well, it's easy to start second-guessing yourself) and get help immediately if you need to. Stay safe!

I know, in fact this was your genius idea, the "1 point for every time I say hi", except the first "hi" is always the hardest.

(P.S. did you see the video? It took me 25 minutes to find a "Final Battle" type video to put this situation in perspective, The scene is from Otoko Tachi No Yamato "The Men's Yamato.)

Be careful socializing while under the influence of exclamation points!!

Seriously, I'm glad. Remember to breathe, because oxygen is good. Smiling and saying "Hi" is, like, half of socializing right there.
