What's up everybody?! I've lurked on the forums for quite a while and posted maybe three times here or there, but NOW I want to get a little more involved in the community.
I recently got off my pity pot and have decided to go on the ultimate quest - you know, the one of actually enjoying my life. Navigating through the confusion and mysteries of life, pushing outward and upward through the self-pitying thought process and scarcity-thinking that I have taken on over the course of my life are what I've come to overcome once and for all.
I know a decent amount of theory and I've done even less in-field stuff. When I was younger (before I lost a lot of my confidence), I was actually a natural looking back on it in hind-sight... based on what I read, and watch (RSD) all over the place (but we all know what they say about hindsight being 20-20).
In short, I'm ready to rock and farking roll. I use Tinder to get motivated because being from the Boston area, there are just SO MANY smoking HOT chicks on there that it gets me motivated to know so many are so close by if only I get this part of my life nailed down. I'm ready to take my game to where it needs to be, and to take my life wherever it leads. I just know that my ancestors - really all of ours - are rooting us on from the other side to be what we were always meant to be, and I'm now ready to answer the call. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired, and I want to find myself at the end of my life looking back on it in joy and nostalgia, not mournful and bitter regret.
As corny as this whole post may seem I don't give a shoot because I'm just being honest. And coming out of a long, dark depression makes you less susceptible to taking on old, negative behaviors which I think will benefit me in the long run.
I'm committing to visiting the forums regularly to read up on the Stickies - some of which I already have like some of the Texting Game and Basics articles. Props to the men who wrote them so well, as I regretfully forget their names and wanted to thank them to let them know how much their posts help summarize what I've been reading, and how much they helped boost my confidence. Already I'm becoming wittier and more positive as the days go by, so much so that I may be over-stepping my bounds as a shift manager at Starbucks by hitting on some of the customers (Sorry, not sorry).
I'm also committing some time to continue lurking, either to read responses on cases or questions I find relevant and similar to my own, and hopefully over time, I can give back and help others on the path as I grow in knowledge, experience and confidence. May the hair on my chest grow ever fluffier into higher and higher echelons of masculinity haha. I truly look forward to working with, learning from, and spending some time with all of you on here!
