I mean... tell them things that you have never told anyone else? And it comes out so easily? I guess confession really is good for the soul. I just gave my whole life story(drug abuse+self confidence issue+personal problems+my father' death+insecurities) to some fvcking GUY I don't even know! I mean... I know him in passing from another forum. We got into a talk about religion and he asked me to jump on AIM. Used to live in Alabama... Pediatrician... kids... wife... the whole jazz. Dunno... it was like talking to Doctor Phil. Everything came out. Made me realize a lot of sh!t about myself. My defense mechanism, the perception of my self(bad I and I seek reassurance from others), my lack of willpower and drive to accomplish my life goals, etc. I mean I told the dude every FVKCING thing. I told the dude about sexual dysfunction when I was taking SSRIs. I told him about my GFs, my fears, EVERYTHING. The thing is? I don't know why? Just a confession I guess.

He missed his calling as a priest. Ironically he told me to go see a priest. I am not fvcked up or anything, but just needed to get some things off of my chest. I have too many walls put up around my friends to give them everything. 50+ fvcking pages in Word. I should sell it... how not to grow up. Mistakes NOT to make. How to hate yourself.

It would be a best seller. Holy Fvcking sh!t. I am crazy person for sure. Wow.

I feel better... I have a direction and life now.

wow! :beer:
yeah, i too know the feeling of confessing. my problem though is that it depends on the mood and the amount of alcohol. there's a girl that totaly hates me, cause i told her my lifestory while being drunk. LOL

i think the good about confessing to a complete stranger is that his judgement doesn't affect you (probably it wouldn't change the judgement of the people you know neither, but the insecurity of this aspect sometimes holds oneself to do it.)

i guess it works miracles if after the "confession" one moves on. i've met people who confess as a hobby. they don't get anywhere...

No, I keep my problems, past and present to myself. I talk about little bitchy things, like people blocking the driveway, but I don't complain or talk about my personal problems.

Yeah that can be really beneficial. I'm curious though why a doctor of all people told you to see a priest. Not that religious clergy can't be of assistance but it sounds to me like you'd really benefit from regular sessions with a therapist--in a clinical setting.

I just worry about a priest saying "just pray and it will all go away" (and maybe he wouldn't say that) because that doesn't work.

Take care Evan

Shrinks don't work for me at all . I don't even need one either. I just need someone to talk to at times to just evaluate my life and the like. It is no big deal. Sometimes you have to drop a lot of past burdens and just go on. I need some motivation and I got it. Good for me.
Church as always worked well for those who wanted to talk and get honest about their life. I am just gonna start going back to church, get my health back normal, and just everything setup for the future . You know! Introspect back into you life and start dealing with issues that bother you. Nah... this didn't happen because I was upset. It was just a conversation that kept going and made me learn a lot about myself and how I can make my self better. I wasn't upset at any portion of the whole thing. Just felt like confessing and getting advice.

No biggies! Just a burden release...

luv- Nah I don't need anything like that right now. I am in great mental health. I was just releasing old bs and planing for the future. Trying to get some drive and momentum back. I kneed a good kick in the ass and everything will be awesome.

No, never. I didn't even tell a shrink, who obviously was trying to help me :) I made up sh1t so I could get the hell out of there.

I rather keep it all inside to the point when I just snap and start shooting people. I give myself couple more years.

I've done it on a reare occasion, like twice. Usually those people ended up being some of my closest friends. Even more close than my best friend.

Only online. ;)
