Polarized Personalities Inside Me

Does anyone else have a problem with feeling super great and confident one day/week then have that turn inside out to where you want to shut yourself in from the world?
It's like one day I feel great and confident. Nothing gets me down and I feel like nothing can stop me. I'd describe it like being a cheetah able to take down that fleet-footed gazelle that is society.

Then there's some days when all that confidence is gone. I feel like I can't face the world at all. The thought of interacting with another person sends me crawling into my hole I call home.

I hide from everyone and everything and it makes me feel, well, it doesn't make me feel so good. It is very difficult having these polarized personalities within me. This problem can be very debilitating to my life through many aspects. I am very aware that this could mean I am bi-polar too...
I'm wondering if any other crunchyrollers share this problem with me.

I'm sure We all feel like that from time to time, My Friend. But I have to say, talking it out, even if it's with a random Internet entity usually is enough to snap Me out of My funk. Then again though, there are times where it gets worse and all I wanna do is lie about and be morose. But it's a good thing when You can realize when You're festering. That alone is better than shaking off your trouble and acting like it's nonexistent.

I hope good things come Your way soon, My man.

I think everyone experiences this. There are highs and lows that we all go through and we just gotta work through the shitty times to get back to the good times. Unless I'm confused on what bipolar means, I don't think you are bi-polar if this is all you are experiencing. Otherwise I'm bipolar as fuck sometimes.

I think everyone experiences these extremes at some time or another. Probably why both beer and ice cream were invented. . .

Thank you sir. Yeah, when I say it's debilitating it's DEBILITATING. It's gotten me to where I am today, both in a positive and a negative sense if you could understand. I'm sure things will get better. I only posted this because my lows, when they come around, are pretty effin' low. My life comes to a stop almost. But anyway, thanks for your positive point of view, very much appreciated.

I can't say I experience it on quite the same level as you may, but I do find days where I am all about getting out and hanging with friends and finding something to go and physically do. Then the next day I'll feel like a complete shut-in, I don't want to talk to anyone, and if someone tries talking to me I'm very short and irritable. I find that my family has learned this about me and kind of know when to just let me do my thing. But it's days like that that I'll sit and marathon an entire anime series, but then I'll go and not watch a bit of anime for the next 3 days because I'm the more usual peppy and excitable version of myself. But I think everyone is bi-polar to a certain extent. Otherwise we'd just be boring But just knowing there are always people out there in the same situation as you if not worse, always helped cheer me up Not sure about anyone else. Just putting my two cents in ^_^

Because everybody's two cents is free

I'm exactly like this. There are certain weeks were I would talk to everyone, I dont care who you are and what you think of me. But then there are certain weeks were im just super conscious about what I say. If i would say something and someone doesnt say anything back my confidence just drops. I guess it depends on my mood and how courages I feel.

It's all about thought patterns man. I think it's natural to feel good when you're thinking good thoughts and sad when you're thinking hurtful thoughts. To be honest the way I see most people get through the bad thoughts is lying to themselves. Unfortunately, self-deception is not something you can engage in if you are aware of it. Ignorance is bliss, as they say. What you CAN do though, since you are of a mind to be aware of your condition, is minimize the external triggers. Completely avoid contact with all people and activities that you notice influencing your mood negatively (within the scope of not interfering with the functioning of your life of course). Awareness can be both a highly prized skill and a significant obstacle; overcome it and reap the rewards!

Maybe you're overthinking this, maybe those are just your emotions that you bottle up inside of you and then they come out for whatever reason that triggered it, hence the polarizing gloomy and happy days.

I go through that. Sometimes in hourly intervals, sometimes daily. It's really weird. :/

It might--might, mind you-- be indicative of Bipolar Disorder. My late paternal grandfather had it, but wasn't officially diagnosed until his later years, about six years ago or so.

I deal with the same thing. I swing from happy and positive to dark and violent in a matter of seconds. I try not to get close to people because I can be self destructive at times.
