I know one way to not "supress happy thoughts".



I sometimes imagine I'm this guy.

"Reek?"

I feel stupid cause I don't get the word "Reek" and I don't get the picture... So I don't get the joke, and it's making me feel ignorant.


Oh, and we wouldn't want THAT, now, would we??

Depending on how you define happiness, I generally try to repress it. I have nothing against happiness, but I feel like an abundance of intense joy sort of opens someone up for sadness or disappointment. Intense joy is normally very unstable, the source liable to crumble or to fade - the rapid removal of that joy can result in sadness. Emotions relying of external factors can be dangerous. Of course, contentment could be considered happiness, and I don't feel that it is dangerous and I don't avoid it. I am content a majority of the time.

So, depending on how you define happiness, it is quite possible. Joy is easy to avoid, but contentedness is a bit harder, if possible at all. I've not tried.

That assumes you have them to suppress.

"a vow of sorrow" is stupid but an oath is an oath. He'll succeed if he has the will power but he won't get anything out of it if the point is to be sad. You can go without happiness and happiness will find you but to be sad for the sake of being sad is just stupid. Nonetheless, He has taken his oath and should carry on with it.

As somebody who has reached enlightenment, I believe that physical goods do the opposite of making you happy and living in isolation can make you just as happy as living a rich man's life - as long as you don't miss what you had before. If you desire nothing then you will be happy but getting rid of his desires doesn't seem to be his intentions. Essentially he's following the path to happiness with the intention of not getting there - that to me doesn't make much sense. All he's doing is increasing his desire for everything and isn't doing anything to supress it.

Well... it's sort of his own fault. I mean, he didn't try to turn straight, he relied on his god... and apparently, that didn't work. If he really wants to be happy, he needs to turn straight himself
It's both his fault for not trying hard enough to be straight, and it's his fault for hating his sexuality

I'm really almost done with the GD forums honestly. These threads of psychiatric ridiculousness are getting...well...ridiculous.

Bring it back to what it was. I think we brought this storm upon ourselves.

They get called for being troll sucker-bait threads on Page 2, and on Page 6, we're still biting...

If that's not "Bringing it on ourselves," WHAT IS???????

(Perhaps we need to suppress a few thoughts of our own when we read the GD forums, and maturity's one good way to do it.)

Oh come on. You know you like being a fisherman like the rest of us. Never know what the catch of the day will be.

no weed? Not shit, it's illegal. -_-

Anyway, I struggle to think happy thoughts for every long when faced with someone incredibly annoying. That guy you're describing would drive me nuts.
