Of all the emotions, why on earth would you choose to be sad? You do realize that it is fully within your power to convert your pathetic, weak, sadness into raw, cold, hatred, right?
Just be angry. Instead of whining and bitching about >tfw no gf, just get angry about it. Post not about your pathetic love fantasies, but instead about how much you'd like to kill a bitch, or other related topics.
This board would be so much better if all the sad, weak, faggots would just shut the fuck up or simply change their ways. So yea, it's time for a respec. This time, dump all your points into anger.
Thank you. I knew there had to be a few non-whiners out there.
>not whining about "MUH ONEITIS"
Okay faggot, be sure to clean up the used tissues and empty tubs of ice cream before you go to bed.
Shit man why didn't I consider just choosing to not be depressed and choosing anger or happiness instead?
Boy don't I look silly now
I've already reached that stage. I don't like it though. I used to be happy and now I'm just bitter and butthurt 24/7.
Then again it's all I've got going for me at this point, so i'm trying to embrace it.
>choose to be sad
>choose to be
FUCKING NORMIES GET OUT
Jesus, this is worse than I thought. I really didn't realize how many crybabies there are on this board. I mean seriously, do you not see how you're all acting?
Go to fucking tumblr or something. I hear those people will actually care about how you feel.
>hurrrr just don't be sad hurrrrrr
Oh I'm raging alright. I'm burning with hatred. I absolutely despise normies like you who think people can "choose their feelings", I hope you get raped in the ass by a pack of alligators and die of AIDS.
Sadness is an automatic reaction you retard, you cannot choose to be sad ITS LITERALLY UNCONTROLLABLE AND WILL ALWAYS HAPPEN WHEN THE SITUATION THAT CAUSES SADNESS OCCURS like a reality check for example. You think we WANT TO BE SAD OF COURSE NOT BUT WE CANT JUST MAGICALLY TURN OFF OUR ABILITY TO FEEL SADNESS SO FUCK YOU YOU FUCKING NORMIE.
>implying I advocate uncontrolled, chaotic anger
Anger is merely a replacement for sadness. Instead of seeing some unattainable Stacey and thinking "oh boo hoo I'll never have that so I think I'll cry about it", convert your emotions into rage and instead see her for what she is, a whore who means literally nothing to you and doesn't deserve your attention.
I don't and never had cared about stacies, chads, etc. and I generally avoid anything romantic or really people in general
I'm not sad about any one thing in particular, yet I still always am
Depression is a mental illness.
I never said depression isn't a mental illness. If you legitimately suffer from depression and have been diagnosed by a professional, you officially have an excuse to be perpetually sad.
To put it simply, if someone like me got mad, and did something, I'd just be another laughable statistic. I don't have the power to harm others, so I'll bear my problems and just weep. I'll get better soon enough.
>he's using the obvious "o-oh I don't know about that is it from that thing it's from" excuse every normal person grew out of in middle school
just like how every person grew out of temper tantrums in elementary school
btw the post timer gives you away
>why on earth would you choose to be sad
>So yea, it's time for a respec. This time, dump all your points into anger.
Wow I'm so enlightened by your post, I can't believe some people choose to be sad when they can just respec and stop.
OP here. When I made this thread I wasn't really trying to tell any of you faggots how to live your lives. Basically all I want is a bit of a change here on /r9k/. I've grown tired of the constant sadness and wallowing in sorrow, that's all.
I don't even know about inspect element
>inb4 I'm pulling the same shit from before where I act like I don't know what you're talking about
I know anger is one of the stages of grief but it seems I flip flop from one stage to the other, usually alternating from acceptance to anger and vise versa. I got depression out of the way years ago.
For much of growing up I thought anger was the most despicable emotion possible and put effort to be completely emotionless and blank. My autism superpowers helped, and much of it was brought on by an always angry father and an always depressed mother. Anyway after some experimenting with drugs and being overwhelmed with emotions I found them creeping into my daily life. Instead of snuffing them out I decided to follow them and meditate on the feeling to amplify it. It's pretty amazing how much an emotion can start out small, not even a whole thought, but like a seed it grows into a huge and powerful force. After a point it gets beyond even my control.
Anger is the most powerful I believe. My pulse and blood pressure elevate rapidly by a huge degree, My skin actually reddens, I feel waves of heat flow through my body, mainly concentrated in my chest and radiating outwards. I once brought anger ot the gym with me and while I was still novice, I did have 8 months of following a strength routine so this wasn't merely noob gains. Timing my lifts with pulses of hatred I managed to beat my previous deadlift by 35lbs.
I can meditate on sadness to the point I get a lump in my throat and I begin sobbing. I don't work with this one much. I spent a lot of time experiencing this one in my youth so it's all familiar terrritory, only then I couldn't control or induce it, I just woke up like that pretty often.
Happiness is the hardest to hold on to, but it feels kind of like vibration concentrated in my spine and back of my head. I get lightheaded and pulse goes up but not so much blood pressure. It's the best feeling so far.
Other weird emotions like fear, jealousy, envy, sexual desire, shame, guilt, etc seem to be the core emotions of joy, anger, and sadness.
>if I say inb4 you point out what I'm doing that means I'm obviously not doing it
did you run like that in gym class too?
also you made a thread about anger and are now crying when people are angry at you
you can't make this kind of shit up
>none of these people would be of any use during the beta uprising
Whatever, I guess you guys just aren't ready.
>implying the beta uprising ever had a chance
I've been reading more on vipassana and heart rhythm meditation. There pretty different but if the subject interest you they might be worth a read. In the past I always thought eastern shit was stupid, buddhism is just nihilism for yellow people. Meditation is legit though, just remove the association of religion from it.
The last couple days I've tried to be more mindful and feel my pulse. I've done it years before at times but not really a focused thing or synchronizing breaths with it. I like the sound of square breathing. 8 beats inhale, 16 beats hold, 8 beats exhale and immediately beginning the 8 beats inhalation as soon as the lungs are empty. It's harder than it sounds because I"m easily distracted, but I like it from what I've seen so far. I get a tingly lightheadedness from it and feel calmer after doing it a while.
Except sadness is a choice because you could do something about it instead of being a pathetic lazy faggot.
