Reassurance Thread

Postby Chfan » Sun Jul 19, 2009 2:45 am UTC

Do you feel bad? Like things are wrong, and you're worried about what might happen?

I do. Anyone want to reassure me?

Ugh...I really need reassurance. Divine Reassurance would be nice..but I'm a terrible listener ..(for those who understand that)

*hug* What do you need reassurance on, O fluffy-kin of mine?

I need reassurance that I won't fuck up my life and that I'm not crazy. Please, I'd really like to talk to someone too.

I haven't seen my therapist lady in a while..the only "advice/reassurance" I can give is that hardcore drugs won't help. Maybe pot will help you..I don't know. Maybe anti-depressants? They eventually screwed things up for me (such as failing a class) but that's because my pediatrician might not know what she's doing. :S

Edit: I feel too..."low" right now to feel or deserve to give reassurance..

Everything will be okay. Morgan Freeman tells me so and he's basically God. Things have a way of turning out alright.

pardon my little black rain cloudiness, but I don't think lies are going to help anyone. Or at least, as the first reply put it, baseless, useless reassurance with no warranty.

*poops on thread* sorry. but don't worry, someone will clean it up. I assure you.

I'm not lying. I'm genuinely an optimist. Cynics can call me stupid or gullible all they want but I'll just smile, give them a hug and point out the nearest flower, rainbow or puppy. Or bunny, there's a lot of those around here.

I really don't know what to do to make things better..I feel as if there should be something. Gah, I feel stupid. But thank you.:3

I need something to take my mind off everything so I can just sleep tonight and make it until morning. Sleep would be nice.

Life is fucking hard. And even though you "accumulated" a lot of hardship at the beginning of it, it doesn't mean the rest will be butterflies and rainbows. You will probably suffer, you will probably feel bad and you will probably cry.

But, it's your choice about what to do with it. I know my life has been hard (harder than some, easier than some) but I also know it's in my power to control the way I look at the world. And I see people do inspirational things - achieve wonderful goals that seem beyond their grasp, doing things at 60 that 20 year-olds won't dare to do, and it gives me hope. And it tells me I can do things in my life, good things that I will love.

So I think I'm a realistic optimist - life will suck but I'll make it good.

In other news, I don't feel quite at home in my new place. I've only been there this weekend and I didn't even bring all my stuff, so I guess that's to be expected. But I really want to get over that phase. Plus, I really want to find a better job - one I'll be happy to go to. But I can't look for a job now when in two months I'm flying to Japan for a month. Only when I get back I'll start looking for one (and that could take a while!). I must remember that I'm waiting because there's a big reward at the end - the trip, a dream of mine since I was little.

Give it a whirl.


So, my sleep cycle is horribly messed up. I woke up at 6pm yesterday, I've been up all night when I'm not meant to have been, and now it's almost 11 AM.

I see that you are a Calvin and Hobbes fan. I've read every strip at least twice myself. I was a bit young to appreciate it when it was first printed, but I've become fond of the final strip.

I wish I could do more for you. Look to your family and friends, if you think they can help.

I appreciate it may not help but if you are still in need of reassurance, take a look at this.

But that's not too common. Happens every now and then, I suppose.


But really, you've got to admit it's getting better; one just has to look at it in the right way, and one'll agree that it can't get much worse.

The bolded & italicized part reminded me of this, which in addition to this song almost always cheers me up.

Also, I just learned that if you quote a post with a spoiler you see the spoiler.

Reassurance is like a substitute for coming to terms with things. It doesn't actually make anything better, but it makes it feel better for a moment.

That moment could be what you need though. It may be what it takes to regroup and recoup, and give life another go.


So take a moment. It can be ok, it's been ok before, it will most likely be ok again. Hell, things probably aren't even as bad as they seem.

Now get back out there and kick some ass.

That help?
Oh. Well that's alright then.

Yeah, I was going for a Beatles reference, but thought that verbatim might be a bit too obvious or some other adjective.
