Just enjoy your molecule of choice and don't think about it... Easier said then done, but with practice you can say "fuck it". The point is; if you can't or won't change the situation stressing only makes it worse....

I just feel hollow. I mean, just a few hours ago a cousin of mine died... and I cant even feel a thing. He was an important part of our family and while everyone was there crying I just stand there. I don;t even know why I cant even get myself to react sadly to it.


I'm sorry to hear that. Unfortunately I've been there too when my grandmother died. I felt so remorseful towards the fact that I didn't feel any sadness to it. But in my personal experiences, I learned that people absorb and digest things at their own pace so DON'T BLAME YOURSELF for being the way you are. My best of wishes to you and your family ... It will get better so chin up please

i listen to relatable music or cut people out of my life. simple, really.

I usually cut people off way before it gets to that so to me it's pretty easy. Sometimes it gets kind of troublesome but it's nothing a week of silence can't fix.

There's only one person on this planet I refuse to let go of and it's not so much that I can't since I probably can if I really force myself to do it. It's mainly because well.. he's mine and what's mine will always be mine so yeah... There's no escape.

Life is short. No time to feel sorry for yourself.

Pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and get back in the game. You want to be a pro? That's how they do it. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. Realize you deserve what you get in this life. Take responsibility for all outcomes and move on.

If you want to fold over and pout, do it for five minutes max, and then go for a run. Exercise will energize your mind and body. Drugs, booze, video games, anime, manga, extended sleeping.... it's all rubbish. Never take the edge off life, work through your problems, and don't avoid anything.

That's how I let go.

This is a people thing

Some people make decisions based on feelings, some people get charged by feelings.

You know those people who get angry at you, and you argue, but after you're both done they say "ok, apologize and I can forgive you, and we can move on"?

Then you're an asshole who says "um, no. No apologizing. Asking me to apologize doesn't work"

and they get more angry and don't understand why you're so stubborn to apologize, and you don't get why they're so needy for an apology?

I don't get along with those people.

I forgive you the moment the argument is over.


And if I need to calm down, I clean my room.

Attachment is based on reinforcement. We let go when the memory fades, and the trick is to doing that is distraction.

I'll think about it and then eventually just stop caring about it and draw a picture to cheer up myself.

I'm remarkably good at letting go of people. People don't belong to me or a "part of my life". People just interact with me for a period of time until they are separated from me, then they're gone. I'm not really emotional about relationships, we exchange services such as time, energy, companionship, friendship, etc; and then we move on when we're done.
