Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

Also: if you have managed to get yourself banned from fucking 80 different discord servers as you claim, at some point during all that you should have stopped to think if maybe the problem is not what you say, but how you say it. I won't deny that there is the occasional place that bans people for ...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

All you do is lie to yourself; you haven't overcome any trauma, by constantly circling back to the thing that gives you this much pain, you are holding yourself prisoner from ever overcoming it. If you have a new revelation on what you've been doing wrong and how to fix your life every other week, ...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

Okay...so I finished episodes 8 and 9. And just as I predicted cannot stand Asuka Langely Soryu. Like I said before, I believe it’s downright immature to blame someone else for your own faults, of which she does constantly. I realize she does this because Shinji reminds her of how vulnerable she can...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

You know the old saying, “Often it’s the deepest pain that empowers you to grow into your highest self.” That’s another reason why I keep returning to Evangelion, to place myself in more pain, to keep beat myself up in hopes it will empower me to better myself and achieve the cure others have found,...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

Huzzah! I have had an epiphany! Why does anyone need to value anything? Why does value need to be a thing if all it does is paint the picture of a sociopsychological pendulum swinging back and forth? I think everyone and everything has a right to exist including me. Why does it matter how much value...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

May I then take a risk and advise you to follow the message of this (iconic?) picture and to actually rewrite the Evaverse as you wish it to be? And then to take effort and believe in your universe more than in Anno's? Ontologically, you're a being powerful enough to do so as much as he is. So driv...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

Probably as you said it is not worthy at all because it can hurt me in the long run but I am here to just accept who I am without scapism. But since 2017 I decided not to meet people physically anymore because they will hurt me about the boy I am. Often I think I have to do a chance give me an oppo...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

[EoE sends the message to Shinji that sometimes we have to accept the reality as it is because probably if you change the status quo you will not be as happy as you have expected. So since then, I accepted my reality no being so optimistic and go on in life the best I can do not hurting others but ...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

Bad news and good news. I sent an email to Doctor Nerdlove and got a reply. Bad news: what I informed him of was well beyond his paygrade. Good news: he sent some valuable insight to me as followed: “What I can say is that part of the issue is that you’re relying far too much on one series to be you...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

[color=#007000] Perhaps you should watch [b]Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann soon, it's just what the doctor ordered! Perhaps a reframing of your situation would help. Would you prefer a certainty of pain, tears, and self-hatred or would you rather make an effort to get your life back, and have a chance ...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

The universe may punish you for being stained... so purify yourself, by working with your will to become able to veto whatever you feel makes mess in your mind. Veto Evangelion. Just say " NOT and ANTI "; "I don't like you and now go away from me". Escaping to NERV is not a solu...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

I actually think EoE's ending is a cautiously optimistic one, since it says that no matter how fucked up and horrible things get, it's still possible for people to get over their problems and forge actual connections if they try really hard. As hopeful as that quote sounds, there was one point in t...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

In both of these scenarios Shinji is hardly to blame for this. And yet so many people online including on YouTube and Discord blame him for being a wimp and a coward. To this day, I still feel nothing but pity for him. I just wish others would leave him alone. I understand I am being redundant, and...

And I completely empathize with you about the wreckage caused by the godforsaken Covid-19 pandemic. The virus really has left society in so many places worldwide in a shambles, and I completely understand why your neighbors are shut in: they're terrified of the virus. And a lot of people right now ...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

I'll admit I skimmed over most of your posts, but your mention of a Dharmachakra makes me think you have at least a passing interest in Buddhism, and early Buddhism (not the later theistic stuff) tends to focus heavily on the imperfection and transience of life, and staying unperturbed in the midst...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

Freud is nowadays laughed at (but politely) even at academia. His system, at its very best, makes for a protoscience, as it tries to explain everything by repression of sexual desire and resulting traumas. Even more, the way it is constructed makes it impossible to diagnose anyone as sound and sane...

One More Final: *It is our last day on the Virgin Islands. I walk to Drunk Bay with my Dharmachakra pendant in hand. For the sake of my well being I decide to get creative. Among the rocky shore I decide to make a small totem, a broken log, dig up some rock, place the log upright and gaze at my Dhar...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

Scene: Drunk Bay. The westerly winds brush the waves against the rocky shore. I’m meditating in a bathing suit with a Dharmachakra hanging around my neck, to remind myself that this is world is my reality, and the reality I wish to be a part of. I’m conversing with myself. “As subjective as truth ma...
