Topics I've Started

Free will

07 October 2018 - 07:48 PM

Hey, this is something I struggled over before and fortunately got over, but now its affecting me again and I see no way out.

DP/DR makes you question everything and I keep questioning free will and if we even have it or if it's just an illusion and I'm so afraid. Someone was speaking about it with me and I see their points that free will isn't real and feel like I can't dispute it and it just makes me wonder what the point of living is then?

I feel like we're all just robots and we just make the decisions we make based on who we are as people and whatever decision we make isn't really a choice. It's hard to explain.

I used to console myself and tell myself that we do have free will, there's nothing stopping us from making any decision, we're just inclined to make decisions that fit us, but now I feel hopeless and like it isn't true.

Anyone else been through this? Please help me, I'm at the end of my rope here, feel truly hopeless...

One tiny last thing

13 May 2018 - 03:21 PM

Hey everyone,

Had dp/dr since about 2015. It's a lot better than it used to be and I'm mostly over it but there's just a couple things I feel are stopping me from being okay.

One thing is thoughts. The existential thoughts are the worst. I don't get them as much as I used, which is great, but whenever I do get them they still make me really anxious and they're hard to just brush off as something dumb cause I end up feeling like I believe them.

The second thing is something I feel I might not be able to fix ever? Because of all the ruminating on the existential thoughts I feel like I'll never feel like my world is real. I just want to feel sure and happy and in m life, I don't want to feel as if my life could potentially be a fake and be a lie.

Any advice on how to fix those things? Thanks!

The Sims

Hey everyone,

I'm aware this is completely irrational, but I started thinking about the Sims and got worried that my reality might just be a game like Sims and although my choices feel like my own, someone else is making them. I was wondering if anyone else has dealt with this too? 4And if anyone has any tips?

One last hurdle

21 April 2018 - 08:04 AM

Hello,

I'm mostly over the feelings of DP/DR, but what I still suffer with is feeling insure whether my world is real. I know this normal but it's really stopping me from enjoying things because I end up wondering what the point of it is because it might not be real.

So how can I feel more confident that my world and reality is real?

Please, any tips are helpful!

So how can I feel more confident that my world and layers are real?
