It's time for me to be completely honest with you guys. I was an avid reader of this forum for a few years now, and I only recently built up the courage to make an account. The reason for this is because I am currently fighting depression. I was hoping to be apart of this forum to escape that, but unfortunately it didn't work out.
I was a civil engineering student at the University of Waterloo. Some of the Canadian posters might know that school. Things got too hard for me second, and I eventually failed out. Right now I'm in the middle of an 8 month transition in hopes of transferring to a different school, Ryerson. I haven't really been in contact with my friends because they are all at school in Toronto or in Waterloo. I've left my house twice in the last 4 weeks.
I used to loved playing basketball, much like many of you on this site. Due to bad habits and circumstances, I cannot play at a high level anymore. This site, watching games on TV, and some fantasy ball has been the only things keeping me connected with a sport I love, and I thank y'all for that.
I used an alter ego on this site because I don't like who I am, and I think my antics got to some of the veterans on the site. I apologize for that. I did not mean to agitate anyone. A lot of people will probably think I'm soft for doing this, but I'm just too sensitive and fragile right now to deal with any negative right now. I truly do appreciate the people that did accept me, and put up with me. That really means a lot to me right now.
I also want to say, to any kids out there reading this. Work hard in school. Work hard in ball. Work hard in anything. Live with no regrets. This life is a gift, so go out there, and go hard in everything you do.
You preach that ish bro.. stay strong my man.
dude you are soooooooooooooooo not alone...honestly the world needs more people like you to be open about themselves and the people around them....we're all trying to espace something as well as chase something....like for me i finally had the guts to tell this girl how i felt for her after 4 years of knowing her...maybe it was the lack of confidence i had or it was the thought of rejection that didn't let me do this earlier but then i woke up one day and had a peter gibbons complex (from the movie office space) and then i realized "&$#%#&@! what everyone thinks about me, and if i'm not happy, nobdy's happy"....i don't know exactly what you're going through but i know there's someone out there that can understand...i wish you the best man and don't let your troubles grasp you, conquer them.
You guys are big meanies!
Who has a problem with the Korean-Canadian?
oh yea and dont hurt anyone (seriously)
Wow I picked the perfect time to create a thread I feel like J Cole dropping an album the same day as Detox.....I gets no play :(
bro.... please dont go....!!!!!!!! u did nothing wrong my man....
dont worry bout us on this site, u just do ur thing, seriously
and i hope u get over ur sadness cuz ive had family members with depression
i know the sh*t aint cool, but once u hit rock bottom, the only way is up
and time heals everything to... stay strong, i know it sounds like just another guy tryin to fix ur problems
but if u just hang in there, and i know it's daunting and, i garantee ur gnna look back and hopefully not regret a thing, cuz u wouldve made it thru
i wish nothing but the best
I like your comments, their actually quite funny and insightful. Don't go that deep into depression you can get out of it. We all can. No, I am not in depression (nor was I ever) but my sister was and now she is a happy soul that I am honored to call my sister. Things will turn up soon, they always do.
Woah, is this legit?
Dude. Keep your head up..
No reason to let some strangers get to you man;
I don't post much on here, but just wanted to give my good wishes to you. It takes a lot of courage to be real about this kind of stuff, I think everyone goes through something like this at some point in their life, and just know that you're not alone.
