Opinions on me, Byeforever

Discussion in 'Community Discussion' started by ForeverMaster, May 26, 2014.

  1. Hello EMC.
    Ever since I read the book Tuesdays with Morrie, the way I view my life has completely changed in what I consider a negative way. Sometimes, I'm cycling through thoughts of my life not having a purpose which leads to sadness. I also become non-verbal during them and not confident to talk to someone about my problems.:(
    As with most emotions, it does stop overtime, but it's matter of finding a cure.

    I may not be in mood to say more, but I'm looking for feedback you have about me. I've built decorative mob farms throughout SMP5, but I think I'm not getting enough feedback from them. Together, we can hopefully make our lives better through optimism.:)

  2. Honestly, we haven't talked at all, ever but I do see you as a very helpful person with all your farms you've made. I'm not entirely sure on your personality, but I'm just going to assume you're pretty generous c:
  3. I have an alt at your slime farm right now i just got their and am amazed by the build and the efficiency of this farm! I recently began using your enderman farm and I love it to! You are an amazing builder and farm maker!

  4. SMP5 is being shut down forever and all the players telling you it isn't are just trying to mislead you.

  5. I'm a slightly autistic and very mathematical person. I don't talk as much, but my intelligence is superior compared to my peers. Math and sciences are usually easy for me, but I often struggle with reading comprehension.
    I also prefer to do what's right, and I dislike real or realistic violence which is why I'm against X-box and Playstation platforms. If I detect violence, I often try to flee from it.

  6. Hi Byeforever :)
    I don't think I've talked to you much in game, so like Alice I can't really say a lot about your personality >. < (not that I wouldn't like to get to you know better, if you want you can send me a message through the forums or I could give you my email address or something to chat :)). I looked up the book you mentioned. It seems like a very beautiful book about human experience.

    I'm not sure why you would want to solve your sadness by asking for feedback on your farms only. (I've only tried the endermen farm on smp5 and I love it though. :) Really, a lot of people on smp5 do.) I could give you feedback on the efficiency of the designs, how the farms look, etc but I don't think that's really going to be a 'cure' to the sadness you're looking for. You are not just defined by what you build in EMC and I could give you lots of compliments on your farms but it seems that that would only be a temporary fix.

    You say that you feel like your life doesn't have a purpose. It seems that that is the main problem that you should think about and resolve for yourself. This is definitely not the easiest thing to do. :p But I think that if you're thinking about your life, and what you want to do with it, that's a good thing. At least you're not going through the motions of daily life, doing things society tells you to do and spending your life trying to please others without thinking of what you really want. Really I'm in no position to give you any advice on this, but what might help is to think of the things that make you most happy to be alive and then do more of those. :) You don't have to do something majestic and heroic with your life and thinking you should force your life in that direction might put a lot of pressure and stress on you. Sometimes just trying to be happy and not harming other people, is enough purpose in itself. I think the people that have been beautiful examples in our history did great things for the world because they did what they loved, or they did what the genuinely, passionately cared about. The great things that they did for humanity then came about naturally through what they believed in and the work they did. Some people were passionate about equality and justice for people, some were passionate about science and trying to learn as much about the world as possible, some were passionate about wildlife, some were passionate about healing people from diseases, and so on. Many self help books tell you to find your passion in life. While cliche, it's also very much true. >.<

    Anyways, I hope this is somehow of use to you. I also wanted to thank you for all the time and effort you put into building the farms on EMC. :) They have been handy and useful to a lot of players, and I think it's very kind and brave that you made them without asking anything in return and without being afraid of griefers.
    And like I said, you're more than welcome to pm me if you want to talk. :) Letting a lot of negative thoughts build up inside of you is no good thing, and I can't promise that I'll be able to help you but usually having someone to talk to makes things a lot better already.
  7. You are a creative person with a great sense of style and you have touched many people with your beautiful and highly functional builds! Your builds show that you have persistence, dedication, and generosity. I think you are a wonderful person!

    In my humble opinion, you may need to seek more contact with people in real life....maybe your minecraft hobby is not giving you enough of the real life things you need....maybe you could find some real life activities that you enjoy to balance your life. I know that is easier to say than do...

    I hope you find what you are seeking...

  8. Well, reading this, you're great :D I think I know what you mean though, because I see many of me in what you're saying here.

  9. Wow! Thank you, very much, for your advice!:)
    I guess I'll be better off if I don't stay isolated like I've been for most of my second year and part of my third on EMC.:)

  12. Turns out, the negative emotions I've had has come from perseveration. A psychologist told me to try not to let the repetitive thoughts 'creep' into my mind, like a Minecraft Creeper 'creeping' into one of your establishments.:p

    But because I'm autistic, my high brain activity can make it difficult for me to stop perserveration.
  13. So now you just have to find out how to battle the creepers once they're inside and how to place torches in your mind to stop most creepers from spawning at all :3
    Because it seems to me that if you have less negative thoughts in the first place, it is less likely that they become repetitive and then cause negative emotions. >.<
    I hope the psychologist can help you with that :) Sometimes there are easy methods to become aware of negative thoughts and to let them pass or to turn them into something positive.
