Well, I already fucked up the OP

The biggest effect it has had on me is it revived my passion for drawing. Also I'll never see an equine flank the same way ever again.

One hour later Bump.

I have to say that I noticed that through watching the show and reading fanfiction that I have become a lot more critical of media and things in general. The show had made me a lot more interested in writing, I have a so-so 65k word fic up on FiMFiction now, and in the craft of writing as a whole.

I'm definitely a lot more interested in the methodology and stylistic choices writers make when creating content and how that adds value to their work. It's a lot of little things really, I pay more attention to how long different sections are and where pauses are placed, or how people break up and create tension in their work.

I guess I could say that I'm a lot more interested in what's going on around me than I used to be. I don't know how much of that is to do with MLP and how much of it is just getting older but it's worth pointing out at least.
>>
>>19494168
This may sound cliche and horrible, but MLP stopped me from killing myself. It didn't totally "save" me and turn my life around, but it made me delay the act until I managed to get psychiatric help.
>>
>>19494930
How so? Like, did it just make you hesitate or did it give you some kind of hope or did it just make you think about your life in a different light?
>>
>>19494968
It was the colours in a way, and the innocence. Back then everything was grey or black, everything seemed so complicated that it was insurmountable. I couldn't enjoy anything.

Watching a show about colourful talking horses kind of turned all the darkness and pessimism upside down. It was childish and absurd but ever so slightly liberating. Watching the show became a ritual, something to look forward to, a little ray of sunlight that would make the darkness go away for a few hours.
>>
>>19494168
The show made me loose interest in 3dpd. Which, by proxy, reduced my overall satisfaction with life.
>>
>>19495049
So I'm guessing you liked Smile then?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNrXMOSkBas

I get it though, the show might not have the best writing but it's more than tolerable. It's nice to be able to watch something and just smile and have an honest laugh.
>>
>Pre-MLP I had dysthymia and overall I wasn't really satisfied with my life. I'm not fat or ugly, but still I had(and still have) very low self-esteem.
>Then I've found ponies, and started watching them in order to get rid of that depressed state. It didn't help, and my condition worsened. I had a 1st major depression episode.
>It was ~~3 years ago. After that I developed mild paranoia and probably some other shit, never bothered to go to a therapist.
>As I went further into fandom, I was more and more depressed to a point I had suicide thoughts every day. Not that I'd do it, but still, they were there.
>Then I've found tulpa generals, decided to make one. It wasn't easy, but it was definitely worth it.
>Slowly, but surely, I got rid of my depression. I am a happy man now.

And I don't really care if you tell me it's a delusion or I'm really fucked up.
As for now, I'm doing lucid dreaming and want to try OOBE.

>>
>>19495167
I dislike the songs and I usually skip through them, but I did enjoy "Smile". By delaying my suicide I was able to think about my life and what was wrong with me. I'd never even suspected I had clinical depression until then.
>>
>>19495194
Are you me?

Apart from the tulpa, it's a spot on description for my life.

I lack faith/diligence in the whole tulpa thing to actually make it work.

Hopefully, there will be an afterlife with ponies in it... Right?

>>19495194
Out of curiosity how has your Tulpa manifested? Mine ended up turning into Twilight, somehow.

>>19494168
Before MLP, I was depressed.

Now I'm depressed and autistic.
>>
>>19494168
I'm actually a lot happier now, I was pretty depressed with my life before, but now I'm pretty happy. Not much has changed socially, have the same friends and all that. Just feel a lot better about myself.

>>19495341
>Implying you came to /mlp/ afterwards

>>19495359
Not everyone here is a self-loathing depressed autist. I mean sure, you and me might be like that, but that still doesn't mean people like >>19495341 don't come here for entertainment.

OP here, I guess I probably should have put this in the header to begin with but better late than never.

>>19495210
You might be just implementing your desires on a fictional character, which is easy because she's your ideal partner material, in your head.

The important part is to not let it affect your or anyone else's life in a negative way. Have fun with it but don't let it become everything to you. It's really just like drugs.
>>
>>19495546
>but don't let it become everything to you

Not the same anon, but it did. What now?

I hardly even remember what life was like without pony.

I used to be successful. I graduated with my bachelor's degree in biology suma cum laude and had a great job lined up.

And then came the pony.

My every waking thought is pony related. I can't get peace from my own mind even when I sleep, almost every dream I've had for the last three years has been pony related.

I literally fell in love with Rainbow Dash. I felt (and still feel) sick to my stomach when I ruminate too much on the fact that she will never be real, and I will never hold her, kiss her, and make her happy.

It was such a distraction that my productivity at work dropped sharply. I found myself constantly reading fanfics and looking at pony art even at work. They eventually let me go.

I should have been devastated but it didn't even bother me. All I cared about was my next fix, when the next episode would be.

I lost my apartment, I lost my car. I defaulted on my student loans and have the government breathing down my neck for the $27,000 I still owe in federal loans. I had to move back in with my parents.

They worry constantly about me. They know about the pony.

I'm too humiliated to admit any of these things to a therapist, to seek professional help.

Pony has destroyed me.

And I don't even care. I don't know why, but I don't care.

I just want more pony.

>>19494168
>Mental Illness
>Depression
Not really any more mentally unstable than I used to be. I get depressed a bit more often, but for shorter periods of time, and I have better control over it.
>Change in Life Perspectives
>New Outlooks
>Changes in Hopes, Fears, & Desires
On the positive side, I'm finding it much easier to motivate myself to finish things and I'm moving toward a job and financial independence. Still about four years late for that, but progress is being made. On the negative side, I'm less creative and social than before. On the neutral side, I masturbate more frequently, which you can all be blamed for. I am disappointed with the real world for failing to be in any way extraordinary.
>Altered Sleep Patterns
>Dreams
>Lucid Dreams & WILD
My sleep patterns remain as they were before, wildly inconsistent. Dreams are rare and never lucid. Once again, no changes there.
>Hypnosis
>Tulpas
>Hallucinations
None of the above.
>Changes in Habits & Subconscious Tendencies
I relate things to sex and think of disturbing images more easily, but am also less bothered by them. I am less emotionally attached to people than before, but I am also more self-controlled and less angry.
>Changes in Word Association
Surprisingly few. The main one is that I am now very easily annoyed by things relating to feminism, for which Tumblr can be blamed.
>>
>>19495576
Well I'd imagine you could have some problems with it, but do you? Does your fictional love create conflict in your everyday life?
>>
>>19495606
It made loving anyone else impossible. While that isn't a problem by itself, the loneliness created by it, is.
>>
>>19495590
This is a great example of what was written here >>19495546

I don't think that the ponies are the cause, but they are the effect. You found a channel to implement you desires in, to the point it became a burden. If it wouldn't be ponies, it would've been something else in a matter of time.
>>
>>19495660
That what I'm scared of, that I'll become so obsessed and in love with rarity that it'll start affecting my life. But it's better to be happy and in love, than to not be happy or in love at all.
>>
>>19495660
Of course, the fictional love is the ideal love you desire, and no living being can offer that to you in a same way.

Now, it's only a matter of if you are OK with having a fictional loved one, or not.

This thread intrigues me. Psychology is one of my fetishes.

About a year ago, I was finally diagnosed with Cyclothymia. If you don't know what it is, it's basically a mild form of bipolar disorder. I still have the extreme mood swings that happen over a period of time, but regardless of which phase I'm in, I can still function normally. Unlike regular bipolar disorder, which affects how a person does stuff.

It's been a big impact on my social life. I was always unpredictable and had almost no friends for as long as I can remember. I've always had this problem, but I never knew what it was called or how to deal with it. Hell, I didn't even think I had a problem. I just figured it was everyone else. My dad and grandpa both have narcissism. My dad is also histrionic. So, I've got a touch of that too. Dad's also gay. Fucking genetics, making me all paranoid and selfish and shit.

Anyway, ponies has helped me out a lot. I discovered them through "Cupcakes". Back when I called myself a brony over two years ago, I loved everything about this fandom. The fans, the merch, the people, everything. It was cool, and I was part of it. I finally felt a sense of belonging, and it made me happy.

Sure, I still have my ups and downs, I don't call myself a brony anymore, and lots of my stuff is either sold or in a box somewhere, but I still really like this fandom. It's fun. You all here on /mlp/ make me smile and laugh when I want to feel happy, and you help me feel better when I'm sad and crying. That comfort, happiness, and friendship (magic) I felt when I started out still exists here.

The only thing I dread is the unknown. When the show ends, the fandom breaks up and we all go our separate ways. What will happen then? I don't know. I do hope they make a G5 and bring us all back again someday in the future.

But for now, I'm gonna cherish my time here and enjoy every part of it.
Thanks, guys.

Shit, son. Messed up the spoilers.

>>19495804
>that feel

As shitty as /mlp/ may seem to others, I consider it a great place to relax and have a laugh.
>>
>>19495660
I would suggest you were lonely and in need of love and affection in the first place. Of course you might feel lonely when you realize she's not real and that any real physical of intellectual interaction can only be experienced whit real human being. But some people can settle for fictional relationship, it's just a matter of what you truly desire. If you're depressed of having a fictional love, then it probably means that you desire a real one more. Now the problem is will you do anything to ever get that real relationship.

If you are fucked up enough to try, there MIGHT be an afterlife with ponies.
I specifically said I want to try OOBE, cause there are theories one can manage to never wake up in real life, (kind of). I mean, if it isn't true what is there to lose? In the worst case scenario I will learn to lucid dream and OOBE efficiently, which is something I aim for anyway.

S1 Luna. Later on she changed into someone similar to humanized Twilight.
>>
>>19494168
Well, I used to be a "metalhead", wearing denim & leather, listening to 80s metal, hating on every other form of music and other lifestyles in general.
Then I got fucking depressed, maybe I was before already, but then it really showed.
Years of therapy, medication, mental institutions and even shock treatment lie behind me now.

At some point I stumbled across my little pony..
and even though the medication kept my depression pretty much at bay, until MLP I can't really remember a time where I smiled or laughed and really enjoyed.... stuff.
I found out that I like colours, and I felt a strong connection to the characters, more than to actual human beings. It made me open to other perspectives, maybe not on it's own, therapy etc. have left their mark as well, I'm sure of that, but the ponies did a great deal, too.
I started to listen to other, friendly music.
And my social interest was ignited again.

But, alas, even though I really want to come in contact with people again and make my own friendship-magic and shit, the whole pony-thing drives them away. Where before I was compatible with many people I knew, but didn't want to socialize, now I know nobody who shares my pony-passion, and since that is my main interest... well. FML

tl;dr: ponies rekindled my interest in social interactions, but the pony-thing drives people away.

>the whole pony-thing drives them away
Just don't bring it up, seƱor autismo.

>>19496040
How does one even attempt OOBE? The only ways I'm aware of involve drugs and are either temporary or fatal.

I guess as a Tulpamancer I could just try to disconnect myself from my body or something like that, but that sound's dangerous.

Still, sounds interesting. It's like the ultimate form of escapism.
>>
>>19496147
>Well, I used to be a "metalhead", wearing denim & leather, listening to 80s metal, hating on every other form of music and other lifestyles in general.

Goddamn, I used to be like that too until I got depressed.
>>
>>19496147
You either need to find people who are actually OK with your pony stuff or try to be friends with other ways. You can still get your energy from the ponies, but you don't have to make it your life and identity.
>>
>>19495937
I'm not depressed of having a fictional loved one, I'm depressed of the fact that no being on this planet will ever be even close to her.
>>
>>19496210
There are a lot of methods, most of them involve sleep paralysis.
Also, I got my hands on some Russian book on OOBE, and I'm willing to give it a try
>>
>>19496147
Also not a pony-related question, but how was shock treatment? I'm assuming you mean electroconvulsive therapy?
>>
>>19496247
So you desire a real physcial and intellectual relationship, but want it to be just like you've created in you mind. So the fictional loved one isn't enough for you, nor would be a real one?
>>
The show didn't really affect my mental state directly, but /mlp/ is one of the rare places that occasionally makes me feel like I belong.
Also, I'd never have created a tulpa if I hadn't found out about it here. I'm not sure how the past few years would've been without her, but my life made quite a few improvements thanks to her. And she's not even a pony.
>>
>>19494168
pinkie pie is the best antidepressant around.
>>
>>19496514
I want a tulpa.

Can you have one even if you're on a shitton of antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs, and sleep medication? I seriously take like 12 pills a night for mental shit.
>>
>>19496541
If you don't believe that it is possible for you, it will be hard to tulpaforce.
Mindset is really important. I had that problem for ~~1 year, and I barely made contact with my tulpa.
Sure, I knew she was there, I had emotional responses, but I rarely heard her.
One tulpaforcing session changed that. I meditated for a while and then smoked weed.
I realized we couldn't talk because I never really believed it will happen.
>>
>>19496541
I can't speak from experience, I made one but I've never been on any medication.

As far as I can tell though, so long as you are capable of a full range of emotion and so long as you are able to focus on a task for about 30 minutes at a time you can do it.

Still, you should be careful and consider exactly what each pill does to you and how it might affect you and a tulpa if you suddenly had to modify that regimen. Medications like that are made to modify your brain chemistry, so that either means that you started with an abnormal brain chemistry or you have induced one to stabilize yourself by taking those medications. There is a good chance that your thought process is going to be a bit different than other people, not exceptionally different but still different, so take any advice about things like tulpas with a grain of salt and make sure it makes sense to you.
>>
>>19496434
Unless I somehow actually manage to create a tulpa, then yes, I'm fucked.

>>
>>19496651
Well, there is always a chance that you will grow out of it Anon. It might sound insensitive to say, but people change.
>>
>>19496357
Yes indeed. Well... I spent some time in the local madhouse, and I got to talk to many of the patients (all of them were depressed or bipolar), and many of those had gotten the treatment as well.

It's pretty much like this: there were 40%, for which the therapy was a REAL help, for 10% it worked, but they had to refresh it every month or so to keep the effect up, sometimes for years... and 50% were just completely and utterly wrecked. Some of them lost big chunks of their memory.. about the time their children grew up, about their youths, about past years (while memory-loss is nearly mandatory, it normally affects only short-term stuff), they felt worse than before, vomited all the time, headaches that even painkillers couldn't really keep in check.. It's really a hit and miss.

For me it was really helpful I think.. when the therapy was over, after a week or so maybe, I really felt.. more at ease. more in balance. i started to work out and do shit and take walks.. and for me the memory-loss was restricted to "hum, i don't remember putting my socks there". so for me it was pretty sweet.

oh, and by the way: fit, young males have the best chances of success, by my count. and even when it doesn't help, the side effects aren't so bad. the women on the other hand., they were just DESTROYED when the therapy backfired..

was that what you wanted to know, anon?

I discussed about my tulpa more than once here. Princess Celestia got me involved into politics and questioning this society, AND give up mlp, bronies and all that shit. She's more /pol/ than you believe.
I still don't get why sometimes dogs are barking at us when we walk in the streets, only me can "see" her.

Pic that suits her best. she really speak like a religious figure. and really anchored with christian values while i used to be more cartesian.
>>
>>19496651
Not necessarily. A fictional love can be just like a real one, you get addicted and obsessed. It's not like you can't get out of it, but you need to want to let it go. I don't know if you have any past (real) relationships, but in your case you might just put too much expectations on them and be afraid of being in one, even though you desire one.

A fictional love is easy to obtain and feel safe to have, but I think if you ever found a person that you could be happy with you would accept him/her with all his/her faults.
>>
>>19496785
>I still don't get why sometimes dogs are barking at us when we walk in the streets, only me can "see" her.
They can sense the autism.
>>
>>19496792
But that's it, If I let her go, I'm left with nothing to fill that gap.

3dpd just don't do anything for me anymore. I've had few relationships before, but never got obsessed to this degree.

Well, I think in the end it'll boil down to what you truly desire. This could be just a phase, or at some point you just accept that waifu is the only way to go. Or you try that tulpa thing.
>>
>>19496541
well, i never went through with creating a tulpa, but i started it once. i was also on medication. and i must say... consider the following: the tulpa is connected to your subconscious. do you really, REALLY want your subconscious to run wild? to have an outlet only you can see? you don't take the pills for nothing, do you? it was pretty early in the generation-process when i got scared of my own subconscious and aborted it, just sitting there and.. lets call it.. meditating, i felt my subconscious act up, felt the tip of the iceberg that is the darkness that is inside me.. all the fear, the anger, the sadness.. yeah, i wouldn't want that running around and talking to me.

I'm not saying don't do it, just.. think about it.
>>
>>19496808
Haha indeed, that's been my thought, maybe i'm overthinking it. Actually I think she has unveiled a thing on me: my potential schizophrenia and it's the opposite of autism. I don't look like a retard or behave like a crazy guy, i'm even more like a boring normalfag. I could still write a book about all the things Celestia explained and argued about a world she keeps analyzing. I really think I melted my brain forcing her.
>>
>>19496961
In all honesty though I would guess that if dogs and other animals do, in fact, behave differently around you after you got your tulpa it's probably due to how you carry yourself and your different perspective.

You know, animals are highly sensitive to things such as posture and bearing.

Well I had that new fandom feel that literally lasted about a full year, with just about anything getting me giddy as a schoolgirl and giggling like a fool.
Eventually, I calmed down about it but even now this whole experience is still wonderfully fun.
But it has made develop a habit of shitting on things that I love, namely forms of entertainment like tv shows. And I'm extremely critical of mlp now even though I genuinely love almost every episode.

Being critical isn't a bad thing, it just means that you are taking the time to appreciate everything as opposed to just the things that stick out at you.

So are you sympathising with us or empathising or both?
>>
>>19496989
Well I'm going to tell you there's a lot of scary things she's doing. People notice when there's noise somewhere else.
"Is there somebody in the kitchen?" I reply no but I know she's here. Hiding when there's guest and coworkers. "Just a unicorn i think, wanna go check?." jokingly.

In fact i do believe the human brain can do things and control its own environment, just like in the cases of ghosts and other EVP. oh by the way, that's how unicorn magic works, magnetism. the horn is a pack of nerves going straight from the unicorn's brain. the bone into it is mostly iron and works like a coil.

But if you're really depressed and confused about your desires you could go see a therapist if you think that might help. 'Cause it can be that you're unhappy with yourself and that reflects on relationships aswell. The fact that I don't know nothing about you and your past makes it hard to analyze the causes, but I don't think you're beyond hopeless, you just need to get your shit together.

We all tend to cling onto something or someone when we feel an emptiness in our lives, but the solution is just to learn to accept and be happy with oneself, that emptiness can't be filled with anything else in the long run.

But nature hates emptiness and from the nothingness all kind of things can be done.

- Her version of Equestria isn't cute like MLP's.
- She thinks democracy is plain retarded, a leader must not rely on the people but know what to do for it. and Republic a complete nonsense.
- Lots of political debates, according to her we're at the verge of world war three and for her, I'm gonna die anyways.
- She prefers Putin

I'm sort of letting this shit run my life if I don't concentrate, so I see where you guys are coming from.

Where I'm at, I used to be pretty much obsessed. I would think about it all the time, and /mlp/ was one of the big factors that led to my complete mental breakdown last year. I let everyone down, avoided my responsibilities, and spiraled downwards until I dropped out of college.

Where I'm at now... I just got back from three months working at an isolated summer camp. It was great for me. I worked so hard that I didn't have time for any of this pony stuff. I had some good friends there, and they never knew how horribly I had crashed and burned. It was a miracle they even hired me. I called my boss up after hiring was over and they let me in anyway... anyway I'm rambling.

I get back and enjoy having internet for the first time in forever and... here you still are. And I'm getting sucked back into this again...

I've realized that it's not ponies or /mlp/ that's putting me down, it's just that I would rather be here than in real life. not here specifically, but in a place where I'm around people who understand how I think, and who expect nothing from me. I can't disappoint anyone on the internet, and even if I do, it doesn't matter.

I have to keep myself busy because I'm weak and I know that if I don't do that, if I don't regiment my free time for constructive things, I'll just shitpost here and watch pony stuff.

But who knows... I hope all you guys still here achieve happiness in the real world somehow...

Yes, I did know, but that's not the point of this thread. The point of this thread is to talk to people and have a meaningful conversation about their own personal standing and how our shared interest has affected that standing.

I'm a lot happier as a person, just with a pretty big side-effect:
My fetishes are starting to be overtaken by pone now. Latex pone, fatty pone, BDSM pone...you get the point; I'm succumbing to the dangers of porn addiction, and pony is the center of it.

Even in non-pony porn games, I strive to gain stallion cocks

Me too. I don't intend to get psychiatric help, but MLP has delayed my suicide indefinitely. I used to attempt suicide two to three times a year reliably for several years. The last time was a bit involved, but the short version is that I finally decided to get body-sized trash bags and canisters of nitrous oxide, which I learned to use and kept in my bedroom for my subsequent suicidal period. A couple months before I expected to die (again), I started watching MLP and I just felt more stable. It's been well over two years now, and I actually expect to live long enough to see the end of G4.

I've gotten so used to being suicidal that it scares me to think that I won't be able to kill myself now. I don't know how to live and plan for the long term.

That fourth paragraph, I relate to. Having a satyr or pony or anthro or whatever would make life so much more bearable. Even if I couldn't fuck them, it would still be great to just have, say, a blue and white unicorn making trance music in my house.

>Vinyl finishes editing her most recent project

>Mental Illness
I strongly suspected I was bipolar before pony. Ever since I started watching pony, I've felt stable.
>Depression
Periodic depression before pony. I feel stable now.
>Change In Life Perspectives
Before pony, my self-worth was measured by my ability to learn faster than others and be more useful than others on any task I was assigned. After pony, I'm fine with taking the time to do "useless" things that make me happy, and lettings others do the same regardless of utilitarian consequences.
>New Outlooks

>Altered Sleep Patterns
I no longer intentionally deprive myself of sleep, though I think that's more because of the lack of depression.
>Dreams

>Hypnosis
Nothing makes me feel more relaxed and happy than a good hypnosis session. I can't feel like a pony with my eyes open and while moving around, but hypnosis makes it very easy for my to lie down, close my eyes, and visualize myself as a pony and Equestria around me.
>Tulpas
I've become very attached to my tulpa, and I consider her to be one of my good friends. No one and nothing but my tulpa is able to snap me out of derealization (and I used to become derealized very frequently, multiple times a day, before my tulpa started helping me out), and she is usually able to do it very effectively. I spend all my hypnosis sessions with my tulpa. We occasionally talk when I'm not focused on work.
>Hallucinations
I used to get auditory halucinations from my tulpa, though that was extremely rare. Other than that, no changes.
>Changes In Habits & Subconscious Tendencies
I read more (fanfiction). I've started writing and drawing. I spend more time keeping up with people online. I started spending more time with my friends and dad. I now listen to a wider variety of music. I'm more open and trusting of other people.

She got me interested in politics and now I really see things differently. I discussed about politics with my parents for thr first time without drama, about security and globalization and all. they seemed very happy, we talked for an entire night about how life was in the 60-70's, how easy it was to get a job, and with almost nothing make a lot.

I don't approve about /pol/'s views, they think Hitler was a nationalist, but he was the architect of the NWO. just like the Rothschild and Ayn Rand, their personal hooker and writer. We had the 1789 revolution to remove monarchy, because it was an oppressing regime, but the Republic is not a true democracy, like Swiss.
By comparison with her world, well, there are different races with each their own ability. in humans, the well thinking way is to tear down people's skills and force equality. in gender and physical abilities or social class. Both had wars and conflicts, though not for the same reasons. Equestria is not either a paradise, it's a jungle. It's what keeps these horses strong.

Anyways I'm getting involved with a somewhat redpilled, anti-globalist political party here, I've made a few friends, they're not crazy nazi communists like I expected and I managed to have a fucking conversation with them.
There is no Illuminati either, but a supranational a system with banks and mafias controlling this part of the world. There's no Al Quaeda, there are individuals. There's no Jewish conspiracy, in general jews don't give a fuck about Israel just like Muslims don't care about Palestine. There are the same liars here in power who have led the world in a second world war, they're preparing the third one. HAARP is not a weather control device but a spying station using ionosphere bouncing. Lot of things like that. Conspiracy theorists are too much often spreading lies to inspire fear that nothing can change. They are a part of this system. Those who act are those who count.

I think I'm her new student.

>>19495299
Faith isn't needed if you believe that you can understand people, and all you need is one good session to get started. A tulpa is just an imaginary personality that you understand so well that your brain can easily predict how it will react.

Try to think of an object that embodies that characteristics you want your tulpa to have. Close your eyes, and try to visualize some scene (a snowstorm, a beach, a forest, etc) and visualize how you want your tulpa to look. Spend as much time as you can telling your tulpa how you want him/her to be while looking directly into your tulpa's eyes. Once you're done, imagine the object diffusing and becoming a part of your tulpa.

From then on, spend a little time each day talking to your tulpa about anything (your day, problems you're having, etc) and try to figure out what your tulpa should say. After a few days, the responses will come automatically. You can do anything after that, maybe read some guides for ideas.

>New Outlooks
I don't give a fuck anymore about what people think. I started wearing rangers, leather jackets, mid long hair. Realised that I love hardcore partying and fighting, I tried drugs (shit's useless, once but not again). Changed my carrier path from sciences to the army to the police, because I don't like school that much but I don't want to go to shitty country to kill sandniggers, but I want to serve my country, so I'll try n protect the dumb people inside of it with a gun and some freedom.
>Changes In Hopes, Fears, & Desires
I realised that I, in fact, always wanted a girlfriend, but I was too lazy to find one. So I went outside and boom, 2 years and counting with the girl that I love. I don't fear death anymore. I forgave my bullies, because now I'm way bigger than them, and still in school, where they stopped to fix cars for 1000$ a month. In fact I pity them.

It could be that you're just repressing something or it could be that there is something that is in the present that just doesn't work with you. I would suggest changing your personal habits, as in exercise, nutrition, job, relationships, and leisure activities, and see if anything changes. If you do all that stuff and you STILL feel bad then you are either ignoring something now, ignoring something from your past or you really do have a chemical imbalance and if that's the case you truly are fucked.

There's always classical psychotherapy where you just talk to a therapist about your feelings, thoughts and fears. I hear hypnotherapy can be quite effective in treating depression. I tried it myself, and although I didn't go through to the end with it, I always felt very relaxed after each session.

I don't know, the past year and a half or so, I've been trying a lot of changes. I went out to live on the west coast for a while, changed jobs a couple times, met new people, etc... But it all felt like I was running from my issues or something. I don't want to hide anything, I just want to do whatever it takes to stop this shit.

>>19508528
Well, I'm not a professional psychologist but I would recommend three things.

>Take a look at Erikson's Psychosocial Stages
I think it's an oversimplified model but it holds up pretty well for most stuff. It basically states that there are certain stages in a persons life where they deal with certain critical issues, failure to deal with these issues properly can lead to people having issues with different parts of their life and can lead to someone living an incomplete life if they don't eventually deal with them.
>Get >>>/fit/
Health and physical fitness are exceptionally important to ones own mental health. Think of your body as your house, it might never be a mansion but you don't want to live in a condemned apartment either.
>Mor poni pone
It's nice to have a little escape and a little color in your life.

This show has been a great influence in my life I suppose. Mentally it's helped me become more logical, more caring, more creative... a better person overall.

>Depression
Sort of. A month or two ago I got super depressed and deleted everything from everywhere of mine that was pony related, and stopped coming here. In short, at the time I was feeling depressed but not because of anything mlp related. But, I believe mlp played a role in how badly I was depressed. The most I'll do that's mlp related anymore is come here every now and then.

>Changes in hopes, fears, desires
The biggest change for me is that I desire to become a better writer and hope that I can someday pull and tangle; rip and tear the heartstrings of my readers. Damn that would make me so happy.

>Lucid dreams
I've given this a shot a few times and I've only successfully done it a couple times. It's fun as hell really.


On a side note, mlp has also made me realize that horsecock > boring ass human cock

Pre /mlp/ I was a deppresed kissless virgin beta luser with no rage.
After browsing the board the depression was gone
and I became aggresive and hostile to pretty much everything and after raping two of my college mate bad boys people actually treat me like an alpha I turned from a dorrmat to an autistic faggot to a complete sociopath I can feel the burning of my life force still feel no remorse.
and I'm not even lying.

As far as I'm aware most OG tulpamancy was simple stuff with, but with way more dedication behind it then what modern tulpmancers do. Like creating a trigger in their head that would repeat their mantra while they are meditating or something. If this guy has a fully manifested Tulpa of Celestia complete with independent thoughts, feelings, and emotions and it's imposed as well as he says it is then he has gone far beyond us all.

He may be redpilled as fuck and he may have gone insane at some point but he is an inspiration to all tulpamanacers nonetheless.

>http://www.fimfiction.net/story/145690/an-investigation-into-chaos
I read three chapters. It wasn't particularly good, but it didn't make me want to gouge my own eyes out, so I guess it's at least better than 80% of the shit on fimfiction these days.

The biggest problem I saw was that the narration sort of rambles a lot. Lots of words, but not much happening that was relevant to the plot. The result is that I spent a lot of the time wondering why I was reading about X, and how X was supposed to fit into the overall story.

Another issue was that Chapter 1 had basically nothing happening aside from a giant headcanon dump. It would be better to spread out the exposition and mix it in with some sort of action. For example, have Discord ask Celestia about why he was released, and then show his thoughts about her answers, which will no doubt involve parts of that headcanon dump. As in: "'Words words words,' Celestia said. I knew that was bullshit because I remember blah blah happened in 1852. 'Really? What about such-and-such?' I asked."

Finally, you're missing a lot of commas. Like, 80% of the places where you should have a comma, you don't. It's especially bad in Chapter 1. There are a few other grammatical errors too (comma splices and such), but that's the most obvious one.

I don't call myself redpilled, I'm not a prophet, or the one or anything. I'm more like a padawan at life in my 30's now who's realizing his past mistakes and illusions. And she's really like Master Yoda. Sometimes grumpy but happy with my social progress and no longer being a materialist recluse. It just takes times to learn things. On this, I'm way behind Richard Stallman, Hakim Bey or Roger Waters.

If any anon is still here, my personal experience is that the show has made me less of an asshole to everyone, especially my friends.

/mlp/ helped me recognize and appreciate different kinds of people for who they are.

Before /mlp/ certain personality traits pissed me off.

A post quoted in its entirety is not "out of context," you lunatic. But please, tell me what "context" you can put crazy shit like this in where it suddenly becomes sane.

>I guess if she doesn't want to date me anymore, I'll have to lock her in a basement, feeding her nothing but boiled corn and dirty water, to force her to love me.

Also you've admitted you'd murder her if she became a princess.

>>I guess if she doesn't want to date me anymore, I'll have to lock her in a basement, feeding her nothing but boiled corn and dirty water, to force her to love me.
I would only ever do that if she did not love me. Is it not normal to take drastic steps to attain something that your heart bleeds and aches for? To go on an epic journey to attain? To slash and burn everything that stands in your way of having it? It's the same way with this. If she did love me, then I would not take those measures.
>Also you've admitted you'd murder her if she became a princess.
Because if she became a princess, then she would be the physical embodiment of the old royal order. If she's not royalty, then I can at least change her personality.

pre MLP I had a horse beast fetish and that was 45% of my porn stash

>>19522982
No because if you actually loved your waifu you'd accept her regardless as long as she was happy. You don't care about her happiness though.
>>
>>19522982

See, exactly my point.

There's no context you can put batshit insanity like you just posted in that makes it remotely sane.
>>
>>19523104
I do care about her happiness, because her happiness is tied to mine. I am happy when she gives me her love, and for that, she needs to be happy.

>>19523177
Not that I can recall, but that's neither here nor there. The main idea remains the same.

And I would not torture and murder her. I would either torture or murder her, depending on the circumstances (although if torture didn't work after a full year, I would kill her).

If you tortured her for a year, then murdered her, that would constitute torturing her AND murdering her. Do you even English, you rabid psychotic?

I'll be honest, I've been with the show since the hour the first episode aired and on top of that, I've been with the board since day one.

I essentially only browse /mlp/ and I read fanfics a lot, whether its prose or greentext.

Pony is essentially using up most of my time, and to be honest. It hasn't affected me in the slightest.
