Hello friends, Great to meet you. I am a 27 year old male who’s life has been marked by a few set backs which have hindered my development. Essentially, I have had issues with anxiety disorders for the past 10 years, but have very much persevered through these and achieved a top degree from a prestigious University, gotten a good job, met good people and have a better life than I did. I travel and go to music festivals and enjoy my hobbies of playing the guitar, learning the Spanish language, photography and writing. Social anxiety really stopped me from meeting women in my life as I would become quite anxious around them, but this year I discovered a great method to recover from anxiety disorders. I am now recovering from these and I am seeing cracks of light break through the false-self I have created in restricting my enjoyment of life due to high anxiety. There is so much I want to do in the world, and a lot of potential which is not being realised. I have made a commitment to myself to resolve the underlying issues which have made moving towards a better life very difficult. Life is not lived with a defensive and withdrawn personality, and with insecurity in us. I have one great best friend, and have a great relationship with my family, but I’d like to get well and move on to get more from life. I have never dated and am a virgin, and at this moment I do not want to go on this way. I would like to heal emotionally and meet a good woman who I can form a strong bond with. Being balanced, productive and whole is my goal. It has been a long journey and a mistakes were made, but now, I know what I need to do to heal. I am far less anxious now and almost totally recovered from the disorder. I have learned the Buteyko method to deal with my physiology which was wracked by my disorders, and I will commit to a hard reset of my brain with fasting from porn, masturbation and orgasm for 120 days. I have previously gotten up to a 50 day streak, before relapsing and masturbating again. I did not masturbate to porn. Slowly but surely, I started masturbating to porn again. I would continuously stop and start this cycle, going through cycles of building 30 day streaks, before relapsing again, because my sexual energy would build up sky high and I was too anxious to talk to women. Well, now I am recovering from my anxiety, I am doing better socially and I want to reset my brain and get over to the other side.... I expect this will not be easy, but nonetheless, what needs to be done must be done. Best wishes, R.
