Yeah, a counsellour. I want to change but it's just not working.

If I could just take some pills to become a wonderfully social person whose not afraid to go out and do stuff and actually enjoy things I would.



I was given those pills. I hated it. Massive withdrawal from it too. I did talk a hell of a lot more though. I didn't care who I was talking to either.


They exist? What are they called? I thought I was just fantasising there


Paxil. I see commercials of lawsuits against it for women and birth defects? I don't recall exactly. I don't recommend it though. Even if you can still get it and won't have any bad side effects you just will not shut up when you are on those pills. I am pretty sure I came close to getting punched a few times because of it.


Actually I think I've heard of some called Lexapro or something. I don't think I'll risk self-prescribing anything. Thanks anyway

Yes. My family and some(ex) friends.

But There are some people who do it unconsciously.They don't know that they are doing it.I don't blame them and I don't put them in the same list of people who do.

Last I knew it was only prescribed by doctors and psychiatrists so it isn't something you can just decide to take on your own. It was years and years ago that I was on it though. I assume there are other similar medications out there at this point.

Sometimes, my mom's husband has always bitched at me for eating and a bunch of other bullshit. Annoyed me to no end, not to mention put more dents into an already sore self esteem.

They haven't done this to me personally, but I see all these people who built their egotistical selves on the internet talk down on others on Crunchyroll forums. <---- Failures

Yep. I was making the grocery bill go up, therefore he saw it as wasted money *eye roll*

I've matured over the years for sure but that was more experiences in life teaching me more than anything else. I've told myself things like I shouldn't be so nice or that I should not be as emotional in certain situations but it never really works so I think its always just been things that have happened in my life that have changed me as a person.

Yeah, many times. My parents keep trying to turn me into somebody I am not. Just because they can`t handle my 'attitude' because I`m true to myself.

Also, those people who cannot accept my honesty they tend to try and make me feel guilty but I don`t feel guilt at all.

Yes I have. Those people are not a part of my life as I have cut them out of it. If you can't accept me for the person that I am, then why the hell would I want you as a friend, or a lover? I can count the number of people who have accepted me for who I am on one hand. And plus, my personality is quite offensive to most people.

I used to be into the whole deathrock scene, mohawk eyeliner docmartins, etc. Got mocked and harassed by the popular kids all throughout my freshmen year of high-school, had a bit of a crush for this one popular chick, so I asked her out. She told me she didn't want anything to do with me because I looked like an idiot and I probably should hangout with the losers.

So I changed how I looked, I changed how I dressed, I changed how I interacted with people; I became one of the popular kids made tons of friends that I still keep in contact with today and I went to prom with her. I don't think I would be where I am if I didn't decide to change myself and I continue to reinvent myself. The girl that I went to prom with, she got married to some guy she dated in high-school, had kids, hasn't really changed much. She works as a cashier at macy's at age 27...

I was just wondering if any of you had a problem with people trying to change you into a different person. I have the problem with others who don't think that I'm living the way I should be according to their standards. Honestly I'm getting quite fed up with it. Especially the people that I'm the closest to.


Happens all the time but the only persons opinion that truly matters in your life is your own! Your the one living your life! Their not walking in your shoes! You are! So let them have their opinion and try to change you. Know what you want and know who you are. Cause the only way to really be happy is going down your own path.

E: People always try to change me, because there's a lot of shit 'wrong' with me.

I like being wrong though.


Being changed by a cat doesn't count. Who wouldn't like to be changed by a cat? Well at least a good change.
