New Year… New Perspective

New Year… New Perspective…

I really suspect I have Dysthymia… but I got myself in a crappy situation here.

If I do have it, I got a valid excuse for being depressed for so many years…… but it doesn’t change a thing about my life… i won’t tell friends or family since my pride won’t allow it, simply I don’t want to get any sympathy.

If I don’t have it, I need to find ways to make myself happy again and I don’t want to give myself any excuse for being depressed ever again.

The Truth of Suffering

•July 20, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Started looking at some Buddhism notes again.

The Nature of Suffering

the noble truth of suffering:

  1. birth is suffering (生苦)
  2. aging is suffering (老苦)
  3. illness is suffering (病苦)
  4. death is suffering (死苦)
  5. union with what is displeasing is suffering (怨憎會苦)
  6. separation from what is pleasing is suffering (愛別離苦)
  7. not to get what one wants is suffering (求不得苦)
  8. the five aggregates (personal sensation, perception and conscious experiences)subject to clinging are suffering (五陰熾盛苦)

No wonder i am always depressed. (of course i have no control over the first 4, so I am suffering with the other 4.)

Two thoughts circling in my head at the moment.

1. Work Or PhD?

2. Losing Weight

The 2nd one is relatively easier to control……All I need to do is just Eat less and Exercise more!

The Golden Rule in Weight Loss (The only thing I was interested in when I was sitting in the series of Psychology lectures about eating disorders)

Weight Loss = Increase Output + Decrease Input

It is very simple, but it is too simple for people to believe.

The 1st one is a lot harder to decide.

Since i have finished my honours degree, now I am tossing up between doing a PhD straight away or work and earn some money for the next 2 years.

I know eventually i need to do a PhD ….but should I get some working experience under my belt first?

Thinking…thinking…..thinking……..

It was valentine’s day….got me thinking…….Why is it so hard to fall in and out of love at the right time?

Is it because we humans are too selfish? or too ignorant to hold on to it?

Came across the piece of writing…….I am afraid that I am turning into a “bad guy” in a more painful way than I wish.

一個壞男人其實以前也曾是一個好男人
一個好男人經過多少不如意之後他會變成壞男人
好男人的定義是甚麼??
壞男人的定義是甚麼??
網路上有個文章你可以參考看看…
你會知道

男人其實本不壞

十歲以前,他什麼都不懂,就不說了。

十三、四歲的時候,開始對女孩有好感,但是那時候他離女孩遠遠的,並且以討厭女孩自居,生怕被同伴嘲笑。

十五歲的時候,聽到大人們說某某男人好花,把女朋友甩了,女孩自殺了。
他覺得這人真狠毒,自己將來一定要做個癡情的男人,一定要一生只愛一個人。

十六歲的時候,他喜歡上了一個女孩,但是他不敢和她說。仍然和往常一樣,臟兮兮的在灰土飛揚的操場上踢球。只在女孩走出校門的時候,躲在二層的窗戶上看她的背影,他覺得她一定是個天使。

十七歲的時候,有個女孩喜歡上了他,但是他離她很遠,心裏面只有自己那個女孩,他覺得看別的女孩都是對她的不忠。

十八歲的時候,看了一個MTV,感動得想哭;他想,如果自己的女孩失去了雙眼,他一定會像男主角會毫不猶豫的把自己的眼睛給她,讓她能看到光明。

十九歲的時候,高考了。終於和自己暗戀的女孩分別,坐火車去學校的時候,感覺自己離她越來越遠,心像被掏空了一樣。還在想自己一定不會忘記她,等到自己成功以後一定要去找她。

二十歲的時候,聽到有人講黃色笑話,覺得這人真可恥。

二十一歲的時候,她的回信中告訴他,自己有了男朋友。他為此偷偷的哭了一個晚上。

二十二歲的時候,他向一個女孩表白,女孩說:「你是個好人,可是我還小。」他想,我的確是個好人,然後他說:「沒關係,我可以等妳。」
心想,我不會像那些花心的人一樣,三年五年我也能等。

二十三歲的時候,聽說自己還小的女孩跟一個帥哥戀愛了。他很納悶,長大原來可以這樣快。

二十四歲的時候,他又向一個女孩表白,女孩說:「你是個好人,可是我並不適合你。」他納悶很久,我是好人,妳怎麼還不適合我呢?

二十五歲的時候,他又追求一個女孩,女孩接受了他。他開始很幸福的為未來拼搏,他想,一時的開心只是暫時的,只有努力拼搏,他和她才能有快樂的未來,但是,半年以後,女孩和他分手了,只是因為另外一個男孩會說讓她開心的話。女孩說:「你是個好人,是我對不起你。」
至此,他似乎明白了問題所在--他是個好人!

二十六歲的時候,他開始墮落。打扮得時尚而酷,而且漸漸的學習著討好女孩的話。不久,他有了個女朋友,雖然他對她也很好,可是,他心裏知道,自己並不愛。

二十七歲的時候,他和女孩分手了。他對女孩說:「妳是個好女孩,是我對不起妳。」

二十八歲的時候,他嘗試了一夜情,發現別人能做的,自己也一樣。

二十九歲的時候,他學會了講黃色笑話,並且以看旁邊的女孩子臉紅為樂趣。

三十歲的時候,他忽然發現自己變得很有能力追求到女孩,但是卻沒有了愛的能力。

其實每個男孩,本來都是想做一個感情專一的好男人的。

其實每個男人,本來看女孩子都是看臉而不是身材。

其實每個男人,本來都是不會講黃色笑話的。

其實每個男孩,本來都是渴望愛一個人直到永遠的。

只是,沒有任何女孩愛這樣的男孩,她們覺得這樣的男孩太幼稚,太古板,沒有情趣。

於是男孩開始改變,變成女孩喜歡的那種 嘴角掛著壞壞表情。

開始學會說甜言蜜語而不是心裏想說的話。

開始學會假裝關心,學會給女孩送小飾物討好她,學會如何追求,如何把握愛情。

或者看破紅塵,遊戲情場,成為女人恨恨的那種男人。

他們可以很容易俘獲女孩子的心,但是他們也會在黑的夜裏叼著煙流淚。

心裏有愛的時候,沒有女孩;有了女孩,卻永遠沒有了愛的感覺!

當男人聽到女人抱怨世上沒有一個好男人時候,他們不會再去努力做個好男人,只是微笑著擦肩而過。

所以我的結論就是…
當你的身邊出現一個對感情傻酣酣…也許生活沒有情趣…
也許嘴巴不甜…也許囉嗦…也許長得不出色…也許對於自己感情執著
對於愛情充滿憧憬的男人

請不要再傷害他們…請不要再抱怨天底下的好男人都死哪去了
因為….他們出現時妳們不曾珍惜過……

It is one of those random clips that can make your day. Music, Lego, Star Wars… so cute!

Freud…

Can you make observations about yourself?

When you are observing yourself thinking….what do you see?

I was talking to a friend and i came up with a twisted interpretation of Freud:

Id wants Sex……

Superego is saying “friends with benefits is bad and it will hurt the girl”….

What does Ego say?

“Make sure you sleep with a girl who wants sex and will not get hurt by you!”

fairly accurate……I think.

A whole new meaning to innovation……
