    I seem to fall in love way to quickly which generally is the downfall of all my relationships.

    Do you feel dependent on others in your relationships? Do you feel like you NEED to have someone around?

    Eh?
    Are you sure it's really love? Or is it the feelings of need, lust and companionship? The two are linked but very different...

    Yeah, usually it's not love per se, its the companionship.

    I have heard that people can be in love with being in love, whatever in the heck that means.
    In any event, being truly in love (those first few honeymoon days/months) can be a circus on a merry-go-round.
    Breathtaking actually.

    You have no self-esteem. Therefore you project the solution to this horrible problem on others as soon as they display some interest. Get some self-esteem. Stop wasting our god damned time and get to a motherfucking therapist. Saying, "I HAVE NO SELF-ESTEEM!" in 20 different ways in several different sub-forums is totally idiotic and is not going to help. If I knew you, I would slap you in the fucking face right now.

    SHUT THE FUCK UP. GO TO A THERAPIST.

    You have money for some testosterone enhancing bullshit supplement but you don't have money to fix your sick head? Bullshit. Quit littering our fucking forum with your bullshit.

    You know, you really should listen to the Pman.

    There are many services that charge very little. I'm not gonna tell you how to spend your money, I'm not going to presume what you buy, whether it be a pair of hot nikes or whatever.

    Just that, if you want it, you can put yourself on the road to getting better.
    If you WANT it. Money is not really an obstacle in 99% of cases. Sure you won't be able to afford some gold-plated shrink who has gold plated clients that pay for his fleet of SL500's.

    But you know what? That makes NO difference because you don't need THAT particular guy

    All you need is a state sponsored program.
    Or a recently graduated clinical therapist who's just opened his practice after dishing out freebies here on Asylum.
    Or you could search for within the school system for some counselling.

    Point is, if you just looked, even just started looking, you would find that help IS out there, it IS available, it is reasonable (or free), and it WILL make a difference.

    But that would require you to put aside the excuses and really take that first step.

    I don't blame you though. It's hard. It's the hardest one, really.
    Better to roll over and accept that life will always suck and sleepwalk through your life.

    Right?

    You're in highschool, right? Ask mommy and daddy for the money.

    You know what? Don't. Don't do anything. Make excuses. And above all MAKE MORE POSTS.

    Loser number two has achieved block list del Peyomp.

    If by that you mean you're going to see Dr. Watts, congratulations.

    And if he doesn't work out, given that you've revealed you're in college, your very next step should be to walk over to Student Health Services and present there.

    Get better.

    a ripped body but a lonely and devastated mind = lose
    a healthy, strong, happy mind in a regular body = win

    Most people would give anything for happiness and peace of mind.
    Your talk about your weightlifting setback is just your anxiety talking.

    Get your mind healthy. Become a happy healthy person. Feel the joy bursting through your heart, radiate that happiness with every step.

    THEN, you can go back to lifting.

    Remember one thing. It took you a while to slide into your present state. Getting out of it isn't an overnight thing. Be prepared to do the work.
    You lift, so I know you can apply yourself.

    As hard as it is to do that final set when your arms are burning and you want to quit...but don't... take that determination and apply it to your counselling. Say to yourself: SELF, FUCK THIS, I AM GONNA GET STRONG

    GL.
