What was the happiest moment of your life, TC?

There never was a happiest moment, but rather a recollection I have of happy moments.
When I was a teen, I got a failing grade in High school, as I was walking down the road to my home to report to my parents, I had my head held up high as I knew I was a capable young man, so no matter what the outcome I get didn't matter, and I had a smile. This was one of those fleeting moments of hapiness
I had some more, but this one just resurfaced today and I was extremely happy, thinking if I ever will get back to those dreamlike days.

I have become stronger, more knowledgeable and capable in the past 5 years since, but I have also become more robot like. I am tough as nails now, but I don't really want to become that way any more because I loved being able to feel things and living my life according to emotions.

Whatever happens, I will stay myself, but I hope, I do it with spirit and love again.

The happiest time of my life is when I read the visual novel Dal Segno. I got very deeply infatuated with Hazuki, and even now I still remember the warmth and happiness I felt.
>> No. 23428 [Edit]
Close to the end of high school, I made my first actual friends. On one hand it was nice to be treated like a human being for once, and the more time I spent with them the better things became. But with graduation around the corner, I knew our friendships wouldn't last long. That, and when it ended I started to feel empty. It left me wishing that I could have met these people much earlier and been friends with them for longer. Probably would have avoided a lot of depression and bullying that way. Probably would have grown into a healthy adult.

Do you feel empty? Not really happy, not really sad, but alien and different from your surroundings. Only spiced up by the occasional shame brought about by base desire like lust and hunger. Like there's just nothing there at all within you.

Life feels like a boring monitor stream that I can't really get engaged in and don't have any feeling towards. Like the blinking screen of some phone on display at a cell service store, dull and noteworthy.

Very often in life. I don't think it's that uncommon? Some probably just pass the time better with TV and Youtube. I suppose in many cases I am actually grateful for my imagination and violent inner desires, they make me feel less empty from time to time.
>> No. 23413 [Edit]
Yeah, to be honest. Even when I do things to distract and lie to myself, I know deep inside that there isn't anything that can help me.

Also, fuck the people that say "first world problems". These cocksuckers shouldn't disregard anyone's problems just because it isn't a problem to them.

Post and discuss medical issues here. It helps to talk about them.

My lower left lung has been hurting, it feels like it's been stabbed. And I just coughed and tasted blood. Didn't see any blood when I went to the mirror and made myself cough again, just tasted it.
I'm scared. I'm poor. The doctors are going to let me die if it's cancer, I can't afford it. I did used to smoke but it was only for a year or two... I've been having trouble breathing but it might just be allergies. I will try to be optimistic.

I also went two years without brushing my teeth and my gums are so full of bacteria it's actually making me sick now. I'm sick constantly because of my own mouth, swallowing bacteria is irritating my throat and giving me a fever, and will be till I pay up $7,000 to unfuck my mouth. No root canals yet, and only two teeth have to be pulled, so that's a positive I guess. I got good teeth genetics from my folks. The dentist said average people would have had lots of teeth fall out by now.

Best advice I can give anyone is take Vitamin D supplements if you aren't in the sunlight at least 30 minutes a day. It helped me a lot.

Mostly mine are mental health issues but I don't think that's very interesting since I'm sure a lot of people here already understand.
I lost my tooth when I was young and I have a fake one.
My ears get clogged with wax to where I can barely hear about 2-3 times a year, may not seem like a big deal but I need good hearing for my job.
I'm constantly tired which might be chronic fatigue syndrome but I suspect it's just my depression.
I was very paranoid about my heart for a while because I get palpitations, mixed with anxiety and stuff I got a serious complex about it. I'm getting better from it now I don't worry so much. I even went to a top cardiologist once and he found nothing and I felt really guilty about wasting his time.
>> No. 23408 [Edit]
Depression, chronic fatigue, palpitations, anxiety ...these are symptoms of something. Maybe acidosis or problems with your blood sugar / insulin, or whatever. It's best to fix these things ASAP or they get nasty

Everything always has to be dark and gritty and violent. It's fucking depressing.

This world is such a horrible fucked up unfair miserable place filled with pain and suffering and injustice everywhere. While you're reading this a dozen people are probably being raped and murdered, someone's watching a family member die, someone's dog might have been run over, someone just got sold into slavery, who knows. There's so much lying, cheating, stealing, and corruption everywhere on this little green and blue rock of ours. We're on this earth for such a short period of time, and during that time we struggle to make the best of what we've got. This while uncaring people try to make life worse for us each step of the way. There's nothing we can do about this though. This is just how things are and will always be.
I want to try and not think about it, to take my mind off that stuff and relax without thinking about war and crime and murder for a minute. Seems like the logical thing to do. Yet as horrible as this world is, most people can't seem to get enough of it. From news covering all the most recent gruesome crimes in the area, to tv glorifying more crime and violence. The most popular movies making a spectacle of violence while games let people act it out. Sure sometimes these things might have interesting stories to them, stories of perseverance, good vs evil, or that can pull some emotion out of you. They have their artist merits to an extent in some cases, but that's all people seem to like, Violence, and lots of it. When it comes to anime, the small amount of CGDCT fans out out there for instance is nothing compared to all the massive amount of people who refuse to watch anime that isn't filled with tons of action and fighting like your dragonballs or what have you. If there's no action, people get bored of it or in the case of things that are cute/moe can get angry and hateful even.

Whenever something cute and wholesome gets popular, there's likely a big twist behind it. Be it cute cartoon animals mutilating each other, muppet style youtube vids being philological horror, magical girl anime that turn out to be dark and violent, dating sims that are gruesome horror games in disguise, slice of life anime that turn out to be zombie filled survival horror.

You can always place puzzle games, which I find very fun. I love Tetris. There's no violence there. You can also play farming games or even simulators.

I heard of this puzzle game called "Irisu Syndrome" it's pretty cute and light-hearted

I like grimdark and violent and cgdct, although not an overlap between them like Madoka.

Slow paced stuff in general is unpopular. As long as the nice things are popular enough to remain being produced I don't care.
>> No. 23402 [Edit]
I think if everything was cute and wholesome it would become boring in itself. If there's only one genre that's prevalent it will become tiring. There is a trend of dark gritty things especially after the success of things like the dark night movie. Couple that with the target demographic for a lot of anime being teenagers who like edge and you have a bunch of low quality "dark" series. That said, there's also a lot of low quality moe shows that try to get by just on cuteness without any substance behind it (I say that as a big cgdct and iyashikei fan). The thing is sometimes darker subjects can be comfy in a sense, I would bring up mushishi as an example of this in anime. I think it's really comfy but not every story has a happy ending and there's definitely darker elements. Although madoka I think isn't too bad, there are a lot of shows that rely on the shock value of wholesome subjects juxtaposed with violence. I've managed to convert shounen-fans I knew in real life to liking cute girl shows, there is an appeal there, but also even though I like cute and wholesome things I also like the occasional show with violence and more apparent conflict. Variety will never be a bad thing in my opinion, as long as there's the option to watch what I want then I'm happy. If there's only one genre available then it gets boring no matter what.

I still have a lot of confidence that things will finally be right in the future.

So TC I've been trying my best to deal with my mental issues and keep going. Around 10 months ago I joined a small online community of people (to try and learn how to socialise on non imageboards/IRC) with a similar niche interest(?) and things mostly went okay. However around 4 months ago I started to notice increasingly people on it making fun of me, and outright insulting me thinking I wouldn't realise it due to my autism. Fast forward to now, I've left the community. I just feel completely lost, I thought those people actually cared about me but clearly they didn't, and my mental condition is worse than it has been in a long time. What do I do when the foundation for my "getting better" turns out to be a lie that only hurts me more? I'm sorry for this stupid personal blogpost, but you guys are the only place I can turn to.

Yes it was my first real experience with discord, I should have on retrospect seen the warning signs of the original purpose becoming eroded. I told them briefly about my husbando when an off-topic discussion ended up with on waifuism, I regretted it. I really don't mean to sound rude in this, but thank you for telling me what I guess I already knew, just couldn't bring into words, I hope I can help you with any issues you have one day anon.

TC IRC has had a lot of people that were dicks in my experience.

>mentally ill people with vicious dispositions

This has been my experience with some people on TC IRC, but not everyone of course. And for some of them they just seemed so depressed that they were lashing out.
>> No. 23385 [Edit]
Been lurking the TC IRC for a while. I have only seen one (1) person who had anything close to a "vicious disposition" and they were ultimately banned. For the rest the lashing out are extremely rare. Unless you count being vicious people who don't participate in a hugbox, I don't see how your assessment is anywhere near accurate.
>> No. 23386 [Edit]
I worded that too harsh, sorry. Most people in TC IRC have been friendly and polite. I'm also thinking of years ago, things have changed a lot there. I guess I was caught up on times I've initiated more private conversation in PMs. The group chat is not vicious or anything minus one person who was extremely depressed and alcoholic and would shit on people for a while (this stopped as far as I know). Most people are not going to be huge dicks openly, I think, unless they have nothing to lose and don't mind making themselves an enemy in the group. What is more common is passive aggressiveness and subtle trolling, but I believe even that is much rarer lately.

how come japanese are better than me at everything?
have you looked at videos of arcades there? have you seen their innate musical talent? their innate drawing talent?
junior high schooler shit scribbles in notebooks while going to the bathroom look better than anything i've ever drawn and i actually practice and they don't.
even the women there are better at games than me. normalfag women that are going to college and have a part time job stop at the arcade once in a while and fucking destroy the arcade machines. the arcade is their only practice and it's like 30 minutes a week at best. me, i have been playing rhythm and fighting games for YEARS and i own the home console version, i dont have to go to the arcade miles away like they do, for eight hours a day i practice and i have made barely any noticeable improvement.
no, i don't have an inferiority complex, it's true, there is video evidence of this happening everywhere and i seriously have been playing project diva since 2012 and still can't perfect any extreme songs.
not only that but i am limited to the few games i know and would have to start all of my work over again if i were to move to a different game. them, the fighting game community there, there are some guys that join tournaments for several different games. they can juggle them all no problem.
they cook their own food, they go to school, they go to work, they clean, they study, they watch anime, they all usually have a project going on like writing a book or developing a game or running their own website where they post their drawings, they have drinks with friends ALL IN ONE DAY and they still also have time to be better than me at every single conceivable thing without any practice.

i hate them, anyone that's not japanese might as well have not been born, they're human perfection and they do more in one fucking afternoon than i do in years.

In asia they tend to spend time getting very good at one thing, while in the west it's usual to spread your time across many different things.

Because Japans culture promotes a ridiculous work ethic and heavily shames those who do not conform, then they kill themselves at 30 because of the stress. Do not worry so much about comparing yourself with other people, try and improve for your own sake. I know that's difficult.
This particular attitude took root in Japan because there is a culture of craftsmanship. In the past, you would study under a master at your craft, be it making sushi, woodworking, farming, whatever. These are jobs that are important, rewarding and technically challenging. This was the way things were in Japan for centuries, in fact it's quite common in a lot of Asian cultures. However, once technology improved and a lot of those jobs became heavily automated or up-scaled this attitude was now applied to unfulfilling, useless, boring jobs. This is how the "sallaryman" came to be. This culture of hard work in crafts, when transferred to a modern office environment was exploited by government and companies because it's great for making a profit. However, since these new jobs are comparatively unfulfilling, with little room to learn or grow and ultimately little purpose outside of profits, it leads to a lot of stress. Hikkikomori is the direct result to this, people who drop between the cracks of that society who can't bring themselves to work like that. In the past, those people would have trained and become contributing members of society, but now they have nowhere to go.
>> No. 23279 [Edit]
>Hikkikomori is the direct result to this
>In the past, those people would have become contributing members of society
Not necessarily. Recluses have existed since the dawn of time. As long as there has been social groups, there have been hermits and loners who tackle life on their own. The only difference now is that parents and government find it acceptable to put up with it, so the "hierarchy" is different (a hiki being maintained), but the principle is the same. Additionaly, hikis exist outside of Japan too (whatever you might want to call them).
>people who drop between the cracks of that society who can't bring themselves to work like that.
That would refer more to NEETs than Hikikomori.
>> No. 23328 [Edit]
I think you are correct, NEET would have been a better word to use instead.
