how do you learn to love yourself

and not think you deserve to suffer, and in fact, deserve to suffer more because you're a worthless piece of shit

Sincerely Veiva, I think you're incredibly talented. I know, from personal experience, that it can be hard to appreciate your own hard won skills when you live with them every day, when you get used to those skills and don't see any new ones shining through. And it's hard to take steps back and recognize those talents, especially when you know enough in a discipline to know how much you don't. But, it's important to do so, and to recognize the things you bring to the world and to other people's lives. Especially when you're feeling low.

I suspect that you and I would agree about the intrinsic worth of human life. That no matter how much an individual is able to contribute "value" to a capitalistic society, people have worth and deserve to live. Just for existing. And I think that's relevant here. You're worthwhile, regardless of your inconsequential effect on the GDP, or on society, or whatever arbitrary metric you're measuring yourself with.

Being honest, I haven't really found love for myself yet. I know I will, but I'm just not there yet.

What I've done is that I'm focusing on myself career wise. Trying to build myself up from the bottom will give me a solid foundation for any relationships or anything else I want to build. e.g. I originally wanted to become a physician, but at this point in my life it's probably better to move towards becoming a nurse practitioner instead. Less years of stress and I can start my career sooner.

I had a strange dream last night. It featured a girl who used to bully me throughout high school but ironically she was chair of the "anti-bullying" committee at the school. I still laugh at the irony to this day.

And my mum died this morning. So much for coming home.

I'm sorry to hear that. There's nothing anyone here can say that will make this better, but I hope they did everything they could to make her comfortable in her final days, and that she died peacefully.

 

Today I was laid off from my job.

A big company bought my organisation, fired half the team.

They plan to fire the other half next  year after they get the remaining staff to integrate our projects into their own portfolio.

Hello Maddy! I'm also sorry to hear your bad news. The experience you've gained will make you a worthy candidate for other organisations who'll appreciate your worth, don't worry about that. Enjoy Italy--if you're going to Rome, it's a beautfiul city.

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

Not sure if it's just hints of little regrets from a relatively short life stirred up by reading a sobering blog post, or something outside of that. Regardless, I'm having what I guess is an existential crisis thinking about the choices I have made to this point and the overall fragile mortality of life.

I'm sure in the morning I'm going to wake up back to my relatively bullet proof and carefree existence where pain and suffering seem far away and something that hardly ever affects me, but for now my mind is travelling the path of retrospect and trying to follow the path into the future where I'm uncertain what choices to make.

Add to this a really, completely bleeped dream I had last night. Actually, not a dream but an almost realistic nightmare that I legitimately woke from surprised that it wasn't reality. Something I've been pondering for meaning all day but sadly fits into this existential crisis.

Too top all of this off I've also created another, very real, situation for myself due to lack of action that I'm not sure I'll ever resolve but will have to sit on for at least the next month. Again, young and relatively inexperienced and I'm sure that it's a passing fancy, that most of you TIF readers out there would tell me not to worry about or that I'll get over it regardless of thoughts now. However, I think for the first time I've truly kind of fallen in love with a person. Maybe its just an infatuation, but it feels different from previous times when legitimately I could tell I was attracted to the person, and they were cool/nice to hang out with but it just feels different.

Moreso, because of a lack of action I have no idea if these feelings are reciprocated or even a thought in the mind of this individual. I have my hunch, and I hope a good one, that this person might also share some feelings, but I've allowed things to pass and fear them slipping away.

As absolutely ridiculous and "Disney" as it is to think about, especially because I know realistically it's not true, this is almost one of those situations where if "the one" exists I may have found them.

That all being said, I know that realistically I'm placing this person on a pedestal of perfection they could probably never live up to and creating a fantasy in my mind that could never be true. I know that given my age and experience it's super unlikely that any of what I write is true or lasts for longer than a couple of months. I'm almost definitely just feeling an infatuation that will go away, a case of "oneitis" that probably isn't going to be reciprocated and definitely never will if I stay an afraid chump and make no moves.

However, the chemical signals in my brain, the complicated wiring of my neurons is telling me all of these feelings despite the objective knowledge I have and have stated here right now. I know that really, a lot of this is just being almost childish to say and believe, but I still believe it and have that feeling in my gut when thinking about it. Something I'll dwell on over the next month and try to "overcome" although that's not quite the word I really want to use.

I guess the big thing is that for a person who rarely feels truely strong emotions and, whether healthy or not, has built up walls of "protection" around my inner self with a ton of deflective mechanisms and clever traps in my mind to collect feelings. I truly feel like ripping it all down and laying myself bare with my emotions and feelings to this person. Not to tear down a section of the wall or let loose a sliver as I've done with many friends and even strangers to help connect. But to truly open the gates and let them in to see everything, but find myself reacting out of habit with what I have built already. I think that's what scares me, a weird phrase to use but one that most adequately describes my emotions about it.


And now for the part where I say sorry for the long post, more of a mind dump really that I don't expect anyone to have to read and may go back and delete later. I just needed a cathartic release in a relatively anonymous setting to express these emotions, fears, and realizations along with writing them down to help myself understand them better.

Certainly won't get any judgement from me about venting on TIF haha

I can only encourage you to open up and act more freely as yourself, otherwise you're only living in a self created prison. And who wants to live like that?

I think we all use this place to vent. And I quite like the long reads.

However, you gotta give this thing a shot, otherwise you'll regret it. You only regret lost chances.

This is incredibly untrue as a general statement. I don't have a single regret for not doing things, but I regret basically every action I've ever taken.

This post being unrelated to any specifics of Bonez's situation. I just hate that phrase.

Obviously regret is subjective, but if I learn or grow from an experience, I hardly think calling it regrettable is appropriate

Something always comes up from doing things. Might be good, might be bad, at least you did something. If it wasn't good, you can learn from it.
If you don't do something, you'll always have the what if moment.

I regret things that I have done more than things that I didn't do. You have the opportunity to maneuver yourself into the position to do something, but you cannot undo something.

Well, its been working okay so far, but I completely agree with what you're saying.

 

I think we all use this place to vent. And I quite like the long reads.

However, you gotta give this thing a shot, otherwise you'll regret it. You only regret lost chances.

Oh yeah, definitely need to do something. Mostly just regretting not doing something sooner.

 

I find that I regret not taking shots more than I regret taking them.

This is me, if I do something and screw it up or have a bad outcome? Whatever, at least I know that something was done and can pack myself up with some new knowledge. If I don't do something and just stay the course, sure I might be a little more comfortable but its going to nag at me, at least for a little bit, and be regretted far more.

I got feedback from 2 (TWO!!) people and created a bunch of issues on GitHub:

https://github.com/a...tsyscape/issues

so I've been fixing them.

In the last two days:

* I improved the shop UI.
* Show an indicator when the player performs an action vs when the player walks somewhere (ala red crosshair in 'Scape)
* Hide ribbon tab when certain interfaces (e.g., bank & dialogue box) pop up.
* Show stat info on hover.
* Fixed a major nearly-impossible-to-replicate pathing bug causing the player to get stuck or walk through walls.

and by far the most impressive...

* Added a skill guide

097QAdj.png

Works pretty nicely. Just have to add some skill tutors around the island and improve kiting for mage/ranged.

Alpha #2a will be a major improvement...

...

Also this is one of the reasons IDK why I hate myself. It's evident I'm an amazing programmer but I still think I'm a failure ugh.
