I've got a hypothesis that a large cause of most of our problems are the byproduct of poor parenting.

1. How old are you?
2. What are the main problems in your life at the moment?
3. Do you view existence as inherently positive or negative?
4. Did your parents divorce? If so what age?
5. From what you remember about how you were parented, how much physical affection (hugging, kissing etc) would you say was given from 1-10)?
>>

I blame the school system, the female bias fucked me over.

there's a known connection between early childhood stress and later life anxiety.

As for your little list.

2. im on r9k at 5 in the morning you figure it out
3. neither
4. no. at least not yet.
5. I don't know and cant hope to answer this question because my reality is the only one I've experienced. I don't know what's below/above average, I just know what I got. And what I got is my normal.

Yeah they divorced when I was very little.

Really not that much. Yeah, that's about all I have to say.

There's nothing wrong with me physically. The problem is entirely mental. Even though I acknowledge the problem, I can't seem to fix it.

5. 9 From my mom, 0 from my dad.

I fucking hated my high school. Forced me to do the IB program which brought all my grades to the floor. I have basically no future ahead of me and all I can do is sing and write music, just like 50% of the people on this planet if they try hard enough. My only advantage is that it takes me 5 minutes to make a beat, and 1 hour to write a song.

That's all I can do. All the skills I have ever had in my entire life has been distributed to singing and writing music. Imagine; you get 100 points to put into things like intelligence, stamina, strength, agility, etc. and mine went purely to music.

why i haven't ended my life yet i question

I don't have anyone I have a real connection with and I can't compensate with entertainment any longer. I'm also trapped living with my parents who are depressed and stop caring about life. I have to do everything or it never gets done.

Life can be positive, but I'm currently dead inside.

My parents are separated but living in the same home out of necessity. It happened when I was 14. Mom was suicidal and dad was always angry. I remember on my 14th birthday my mom started slitting her wrist during an argument with my dad while he was making me a cake.

Early on, my parents were dysfunctional with each other but was somewhat affectionate with me. Hugs goodbye before school/work, but that was about it. 5/10

I'm currently a very bitter, blunt, and very hesitant to show affection. However, the few times I bonded with someone I did everything in my power to show them love and affection. I was like a family dog.

Social anxiety, which is not a big deal, really. I force myself to put effort into socializing till it become easy and automatic
Insecurities that originate from early childhood, I've only managed to find the cause of them some month ago, not sure how to deal with them yet. They also cause me being envious and jealous of people, which sucks, but I try to fight it
Therefore, not being able to maintain a healthy romantic relationship, which eats me from inside sometimes

You shouldn't try to fight it, envy is an incredibly useful instinct. If everyone felt envy towards chads/people who are more successful than themselves and embraced it, instead of viewing it as bad, then this world would be a lot more level of a playing field.

If you are screwed in life it is absolutely acceptable to envy others. Removing your envy is the first step towards becoming an irredeemable beta.

FUCK YOU!! Envy almost made me lose my friends once. It's not a healthy feeling as you may know it like - at my situation it fill my whole mind, doesn't let me think anything but other person that it better.
You think it helps with self-developing? NO IT DOES NOT. It only makes me feel worthless and be rude to my friends. As I said, once I've almost lost them.

Aheuheuheu. You so very, very mad.

I think you have some internal conflicts you need to work out if that's how you react to my advice.

Envy has helped me grow as a human being quite a deal, because it let me see that the world is competitive and unforgiving, and instead of looking to others for validation I decided to take my life into my own hands.

I'm going to be making 45k a year starting in April.

The motivation to improve myself came from the bitter hatred I felt and feel towards those who got ahead of me in life.

>Envy has helped me grow as a human being quite a deal, because it let me see that the world is competitive and unforgiving, and instead of looking to others for validation I decided to take my life into my own hands.
Well excuse me, I don't picture world as a hostile environment, rather not-giving-a-shit about me. I'm pretty sure that I can go far enough being a nice aand sincere person I am.
There's something true about what you said. When I were a wee lad I as really nice and open to people(also I was FAT), I liked talking to them about all sorts of shit, and about myself as well, but these people instead of treating me nice took advantage of me, so about the age of 12 I closed myself inside and started being pretty darn hostile and not trusting other people, which actually ruined my high school life completely.
Then I had a summer to myself, I got eligible to join uni at "more educated part of this country", and I decided that it's a brand new start of my life and I should refrain from being an asocial spaghetti freak.
So I did just that, and interestingly, people don't take advantage of me, I've been here for 1,5 years and I don't regret a single thing I told people about myself.
But early childhood traumas are still somewhere deep inside me, so there's that.

1. 21

2. No girlfriend, shitty minimum wage job, no coworkers, boredom, drug abuse, aspergers, ADHD, avoidant personality disorder, friends hate me, English major

3. Life is what you make of it. Unfortunately I have been a huge pussy so far and am getting off to a very, very late start. I wish I could go back to when I was 18 and start over from there.

4. My parents have been together since the early 80's. They have a good marriage.

5. My family is very affectionate. Lots of hugging and kissing and I love you's.

My only consolation is that I am a decent writer, and as long as I keep writing every day I might be able to make a career out of it. Hopefully. My social anxiety might get in the way of that. And I am afraid that no matter what I do, I will fail. And eventually commit suicide. I have had this fear since I was a little boy.

>>26323856
Envy is worthless.
You seem to assume that there is an objective correlation between material circumstances and happiness. There isn't.
On the surface, my life hasn't changed one bit the last 5 years, and yet I went from being completely happy to doubting if I want to live at all. There are people who have objectively dogshit lives by our standards and still cling to their lives. There are people who have everything and still are depressed.
Yes, if you feel envy, you might find a drive to get what you want. But in the meantime, or if you don't succeed, that envy is just making you unhappy. You would be better off without it.

Fuck off. Alpha/beta only exists when you compare yourself to others, which is inherently "beta".

It's not a hypothesis, it is proven.

However to not distress the females any further, we prefer not to make public that being a shitty mother completely fucks up any child.
Also that way big pharma can tell everyone it's genetic and sell pills.

Read "They f*** you up" if you want I read more.

6 until I was ten and after that 0

>most of our problems are the byproduct of poor parenting.
I agree. My parent were horribly restrictive. Not in the way that would make me a better person but in the "no fun allowed" way. Every single punishment was taking away every possible source of entertainment for a random amount of time. Most of the time I was punished for things that weren't my fault, they just wanted to abuse authority.

>Not enough.
I craved attention fervently and was not nearly satiated. I was a real momma's boy and liked hugging and kissing and that sort of thing. My mother has always been selfless but had never reciprocated. She would find my constant affection to be annoying and wasn't always up for kissing and hugging. I don't want to blame anyone, but I really think I needed that attention, or at least to receive it and then be weened off. Now I am very seldom affectionate towards her physically, although we maintain a very close relationship.

>>26327802
Reading responses it appears you might have asked me to rate affection from 1-10 for both parties; I thought you were talking about ages 1-10, lmao.

I would say 5/10 for both, but my dad would be liable to show more affection than normal because he only saw us every so often.

Are you actually autistic? I haven't been on this board too long; how many actual autists are on here?
>>
>>26327901
Yes I have been diagnosed by a professional psychiatrist. I wouldn't be surprised if it was 50% autists on here, if you tested them. But I've only seen 2-3 other diagnosed ones here, but I've also come to /r9k not long ago.

20
>2. What are the main problems in your life at the moment?
well, I don't have any friends and have a lot of 'mental illnesses' according to my shrink, but I don't particularly care, or see that as a major problem.
the only thing that I see as an issue is my lack of motivation, I want to get to a point where I can live comfy with minimal human interaction, but I'm lacking the drive to make that happen any quicker (I'm currently in uni)
also deciding on a career in general is an issue, I have it narrowed down to engineering or science, currently studying EE and having my doubts
>3. Do you view existence as inherently positive or negative?
neither, I don't think it's meaningful to apply a moral value to the entirety of existence.
is life mostly suffering? yea. does that mean existence is negative? not necessarily
>4. Did your parents divorce? If so what age?
no
>5. From what you remember about how you were parented, how much physical affection (hugging, kissing etc) would you say was given from 1-10)?
~5-7
I don't think I quite took in any of the affection however, I'm a bit lacking 'emotionally'

What is your IQ, if you know it?
>>
>>26328010
Online IQ tests give me a score of around 120, and my psych said he would also put me into that range. I actually took an official test for a diploma thesis on autism, should have asked them what the results were. Only said that I was one of the highest. And the girl conducting the study was pretty hot too, almost fell in love, damn.

>>26328245
As far as I know, I look pretty good, quite big, athletic build, face of a greek god (if not for acne). But my strange movement patterns and overall behaviour set off the alarms of many people. I'm out, going to sleep now. I hope it goes well.
