Go on living.

Just go live.

And it will go away.

Go live and then forget about it.

You're never going to be what you were in the past. You're always going to be something new. Make the best of it. That's all you can do.

Don't look back, it's pointless.

Don't be so quick to define your situation. It is a new but ever changing phenomena all the time.

You're always going to be changing and growing.

Go live.

Just go live.

One day you're going to be dead.

You get one body. It is your vessel to be in this world. That alone is a miracle. What is interesting?

But one day, you will certainly die. I'm 100 percent certain of it. And everyone you know will die too.

Take care of your health.

If youre in your mid 20's you have a long way to go. You could live another 50 years, easily. But that's about all you get.

Take care of your health.


Make your self strong. You have a long journey ahead.

Own it.

Embrace it.

Embrace your life. Embrace your self.

Own it. Do it.

Get a job or a career if you want. Learn some skills.

One day you will be carrying on with your life, busy doing something, and you will realize the whole dp thing is no longer a part of your life. It will be gone. And you will realize it wasn't really anything anyways, just another state of mind.

The day that it left isn't even important. Who cares? You will be too engaged in your life to care. And dp becomes that petty.

It's true.

You will be caught up in your life and it will be gone. That's how it works. I've seen it happen in different people and myself as well.

Santa clause doesn't leave presents until your asleep.

So just put it out of your mind and carry on with your life.

Exercise alone can take you out of your funk. That's what dp and dr is.

Just a bunch of funk.

You're in a funk.

That's all it is, I'm absolutely certain of it.

Get out of it. Let's go.

I am 100 percent certain you can get out of it.

You leave dp and dr when you get up and leave it.

Just get up and leave it.

If you fall, get up. Try again.

If you fall, try again. Again and again and again if you have to.

Just go.

That's it. It's as simple as that.

Really, depersonalization isn't as big a deal as you're making it out to be.

I know I know, it seems like it. You want some kind of credit for your terrible disposition. But sorry, you don't get any of that.

You're ok.

Just go.

It's not as bad as you think it is. And it's not as hard as you think it is either.

Sorry to be the one to tell you.

You have to over come it. You best be getting your self healthy and making your self strong and overcoming your fears.

It gets easier and easier and easier and easier.

Face your fears.

If you're embarrassed of being afraid, good, it's embarrassed. So what, get over it. Does it really hurt? A little bit, I know. You'll be alright.

Take care of your mental health too.

Don't know how? Learn.

Try it.

Try to improve your mental health and your physical health too and see for your self how do you feel.

Don't know how? Learn. It's all up to you.

Make a list.

What can I do to improve the quality of my life? And do those things.

Be active. Find solutions.


Reading is a good past-time. It can change your life.

Knowledge is practical.

Beware of drugs and cigerettes. They can do damage to your health.

What are you hung up on? Philosophy? Wondering what/who you are?

If so, that is your quest. It is for you to learn. Go learn. Isnt it interesting? I mean, you could not be here but you are. Amazing.

You are pure awareness, alive in this world via body.

Go live, I dare you.

Go for a hike. Read something interesting. Go to the beach. Start a business. Educate your self. Go camping. Make friends and family. It's life. Time to go live.


Learn about life.


There's so much you don't know.

Learn something.

Don't get hung up on this dp stuff.


Have any hobbies?

Gardening? Yoga? Swimming? Biking? Wrestling? Hiking? Rock climbing? Traveling? Horse riding? Basketball? Dancing?

You should get some exercise.

Exercise is so good for your mental and physical health.

Yoga is great.

If you're going on a walk or a jog, don't forget to stretch. You don't want to injure your body, then you're really screwed.

Do you know how to eat? How to prepare meals that are healthy for you?

Do you have a meal plan? An exercise or yoga plan?

How are you going to live? You have many years ahead of you. Go.

Learn. Have fun.

Beware of junk food, it can make you sick.

You don't wanna be sick. Yuck.

Better brush your teeth and don't eat to much sugar or your teeth will rot.

Don't over eat. It's better to eat less then too much.

Take care of your body.

More importantly, take care of your soul.

Have you experienced the calm releif of silence and stillness?

Meditation. Mmmmm, that's the ticket.

Rocks are cool. Herbs are cool. Ecology and nature is cool. Or maybe your into technology or engineering. Cool. Your potential is endless.

Maybe it's fashion that interests you or maybe you don't have may interests at all?

Something is interesting to you, I know, or you wouldn't be reading this. Is it psychology then?

Have you learned about the theory of evolution and how over a long period of time things have changed and have grown into what we are now? Is that interesting or what?

How about a joke? Got any funny jokes? I do. I am ready. I have at least 3 jokes I can spit out at any given time. Wha u got?

Did you know people are planning to colonize Mars?

What interests you?

How are you going to finance your living? That's a big one.

All of these things and more are part of living.

My point is simple. Take responsibility for your self and you will out grow the dp stuff.

You'll grownright out of it. But you gotta go live to do that. You have to let it go and go on about your life. It's nothing.

I can look back at the years of this depersonalization and anxiety and depression and laugh.

Oh how awful and dreadful and impossible it seemed. I considered suicide. But it seems lightweight when you develop the strength. I'm 30 years old now. I was 19.

If it is hard, it gets easier. You have to be strong.

You will become strong naturally. If you're afraid, be brave. Bravery isn't fearlessness. Bravery is being afraid but conquering it anyways. Then you become fearless.

Don't get hung up on this dp stuff.

I'm so serious.

Go live.

I want you to ask every single person on here who is currently in the throws of chronic horrendous DP if this is even remotley possible....Because its NOT...NOT when we are ill.......

This is the classic "Im better now and have forgotten what it was like to suffer" post.........

Please dont pep talk people....That is the worst thing you can do to people who are seriously ill in the throws of chronic DP...

Instead give them hope that they can recover in time once they hang on in there...

Too many people on here get better and then preach that its not that bad simply because they have forgotten the suffering...Instead of preaching...Support...

People who are sick need BACK UP.....NOT pep talks.........
On a side note Im very glad that you feel better and keep doing what got you there....
