Too late? Maybe not? *update*
    #3597542 - 01/08/05 09:42 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

yea I'm only 18 but I keep feeling like I'll never beable to change... I wish I was more social like some of my friends, im very picky on who I hangout with because most people just come off as rather stupid and annoying. I'm very jealous of a friend of mine who has WAY more friends than me and is constantly busy going from partys to friends houses n shit and is never at home but I can't stand the majority of his friends but I'm still envious that he has them? I need to work-out build some fucking muscle on my boney body and fuck I could be a millionaire by now if I kept my mind to doing shit instead of constantly just sitting doing nothing like I'm doing right now wtf do I need to motivate myself? The only thing I can think of is myself and well.. It hasn't worked yet  :frown:

Do you have goals? There have been several times where I've lost my motivation to do anthing. I am 26 yrs old and just recently in the past few months have motivated myself to do things that I never thought I would. My job...I used to work just for the sake of making money. Now it's more important to me than that. I put more heart into it. More passion, sounds silly? I don't care because it makes me happy, and I'm working my way towards something better. I have a goal and that keeps me motivated because I don't want to let myself down. My kids are also my motivation. They keep me from getting into trouble and they keep my mind on the more important tihngs in life.

I don't have much close friends, but I get along with everyone I come across. I feel good about that. I think positive always and try not to let enything get me down. It is hard to do, but just changing simple behavior can make a big difference. Smile more. Compliment more. Those are just suggestions.
You want to work out, that's great! Set a goal weight for yourself and work to reach it, cause when you do..you'll feel accomplished and your attitude about life will change. At least that's what happens with me.
This is just my 2 cents.

Good luck and stay positive!

Duster, I'm coming to you from the future.

Well not really, but I used to be the same way as you. When I was about 16, I had a few good friends. I sat at home alot and didnt really do much.

"Make the best out of every situation that you find yourself placed in"
I run that line through my head everytime I start getting mad, embarrased, bored, etc.....

I thought about gaining muscle, but not for me, so I said screw it, you like me for who I am or dont like me at all.

My advice: After reading you post it sounds like you want to be wanted(doesnt everyone?). Bro all that rests on your shoulders. Change your attitude and everything else goes easy. And SMILE!

These two songs helped me alot, dont know what kind of music you like, but I suggest just listening to the lyrics:

Kottonmouth Kings: Positive Vibes
Kottonmouth Kings: Tangerine Sky

Some people might try to encourage you to look at life in a less social context. It may help.

I think the late teens are a turbulent time for everyone. I struggled with myself a lot in those years. It wasn't until I was in my mid 20's that I began to be comfortable with who/what I was.

I also did not have a lot of friends at your age. I had a hard time in social situations. It was almost impossible to hold a conversation or even be comfortable around strangers. It wasn't until my early 20's that I started to come out of my shell.

Now I can walk into a room full of strangers and have new friends within a matter of minutes. And I'm still not one of those loud or outgoing types. I just realize that we're all pretty much the same and theres no reason not to be friendly with strangers the same way I would be with people I already know. I may not like everyone I meet, but I have no trouble meeting them, getting to know them, and then making that determination.

And remember, its the quality of your fiends, not the amount of friends you have, that is important.

Hey man i feel ya,

Beleive me you'll change, everyone does its inevitable, you sound pretty intelligent, most people arent intelligent enough to be picky about whom they befriend, and it gets them into alot of trouble. Anyways who wants to hang with ppl they dont have anythin in common with or dont like? i dont.

Your fine man, youll do whats right when its right for you. An old tibetan saying says "The more you bump your nose the more you learn". most people just break their noses and never learn, you seem more inteligent than that and thats good, ppl are always jealous of people worse off than themselves.

Anyways man, Peace be with you  :thumbup:

Well finally trying to put my mind to it I just sat down with my close friend and told him how I've been feeling.. he said some things and that made me feel alot better, plus what you guys posted also helped  :tongue:

I've decided that tomorrow I'm gonna start doing all the things I've been saying I was gonna do cause if not now then when? I gotta quit putting a time-out on everything and get my life moving or I'm gonna fucking die I can't stand this shit anymore... it's not how I pictured my life at all  :mad:

I'll start posting an update about every week just to let you guys in on my progress and hopefully let this be an inspiration to other's who feel like their in a hole that they'll never get out of.. or are trying to and just aren't sure of the way out. Well you guys it's right infront of your face you just gotta strain alittle to reach out and grab it  :evil:

FIRST WEEK!

Well It's been the first week and I've been feeling lots better :laugh: been working out every-other day for a solid week now and focusing more on things that I've been needing to get done... one problem I'm having right now is being able to get a good nights sleep, no matter when I go to sleep I'll only sleep for about 3-4 hours twice a day and am now tired most of the time and not fully rested. Anyone know of anything that could help? Even if I drink gangs of alcohol it still happens  :mad:

Melatonin and valerian root are supposed to be good. There are lots of tips for getting over insomnia on the net too. Do a google on "tips insomnia".

dude, after working out usually fall asleep. don't get hooked on drinking to get some sleep. you'll only become dependent upon alcohol to help you sleep. try a safe sleeping pill. but don't take them if you need to wake up at a specific time in the morning. don't do drugs either. maybe smoke some pot though. lol!
