    What are your dreams, motivations, interests, passions?

    I want to create my own business and grow it from scratch until I can live off that or at least work part time. But I also want to train as a teacher and become a musician and a DJ and a bunch of other stuff. So I get anxious because I can't focus on one project.

    But anyway, what about you lot. What are your goals at the moment?

    Hope I can make it,

    I wake up to go to work ;), otherwise id sleep until 11 o clock. But theres other things: The smell of bacon in the morning, someone waking me up (makes me want to talk to them usually), having to piss. Usually the thing that makes me want to go back to sleep though, Is either looking at the clock and seeing thats it like 6 o clock, or wanting to go back to a dream(usually works).

    This little thread here really just resonated with me by only reading the subject of the thread. Anyway, I am new to nofap and super stoked about this supportive community. For me what truly at my most highest self in the moment in life right now gets me up in the morning is being able to kiss my girl's face, get outside and jump into the ocean, close my eyes after I drink that first sip of coffee to feel the sun and the air on my face, and the notion that the day is a new day and anything is possible (this is the one thing that I really want to be more mindful of). Life is grand and every moment is truly a clean slate to start something of value I am grateful to be typing this right now and to have the awareness to know that I have a problem and that I have the ability to seek out help. Thank you gentleman, I hope I get to know some of you on here. Also Reboot Jake!I really want to start DJing myself. What are your plans for that? Have you started experimenting with DJing as of late?

    I always had a lot of dreams and goals. But in the past, it was often chaotic.

    But NOW, what makes my life so great, is that I am very organized.

    My personal living and working space is cleaned up, neat, spacy, lightened, quiet, comfortable. I have a great view out of the window, I'm living in a skyscraper with wide full-angle panorama.

    And I can work exactly right the way I like it. I am earning good money, I am doing things I like, and my clients are happy. This all together makes me totally happy. When I wake up, I'm thankful for this and I really LOVE it to go into a cleaned up space, to have good smeels, to feel the comfort of an organized life.

    So my motivation is very intrinsic! In the morning the sun is right shining into my face, I simply LOVE it to get up and to start my daywork!

  8. I have many dreams actually, still quite young, didn't make a choice yet.
    My two main choices would be either a programmer or a computer animator. Interested in both, but since I'm still quite young, I don't need to rush my choice yet. If I be a programmer, I'd slowly build up a business, make my own softwares and all, or work for a big company. If I become an animator, I'd work for big companies to develop video game animations or movie CGI stuff.
    Small goals would be to learn the advanced calisthenics movements and start living a healthier lifestyle. I'm also looking into music, I'd probably start learning the piano next year as a leisure activity to train my patience, brain flexibility with the whole different finger thing, and to simply know how to play the piano. I also enjoy dancing, but I don't have a lot of time to develop that part of me, so it's not as good as I want it to be. Gonna start being more organized next year so I have time to develop different interests while having time to enjoy stuff like video games too, balance them out.
    Technically that's it, I like to keep my life simple. Sometimes I just sit down and enjoy the present knowing that life isn't luxuriously long, take a rest from chasing all the goals. :D

    The thing which i would never abandon throughout my whole life is pursuing music - im not talking about necessarily becoming ultra super successful musician, just pursuing the idea of writing and composing music which is gonna affect and change people's lives. Music that would make them smile, love and live with their whole being or to put it simply - music that would make people feel truly happy.
    Otherwise, there are always those small things in life which may always happen and surprise you the least you expect them. This is one of the many beautiful things about life - along with this huge bunch of unpleasant things, there is always something on the contrary that can change your life forever. Yes, it's a cliche, but it's true, since i have experienced it a few times. A few times which will always remind me of how beautiful life actually is :) Just going out and doing something, being in harmony with others.. just experiencing life :) So, those are probably my two major driving forces - music and this bunch of random, sweet and sentimental events, which actually characterize our lives :)

    Savoy, you really described some of those moments nicely :).

    I do personally believe life would always suck without those who pursue truly fulfilling music.

    To keep growing and improving in various aspects, whether it be my physical state in the gym and my nutrition or my confidence with new people and in certain social situations. Each day is an opportunity to keep learning.

    Nothing. I have no real reason to wake up. I do not have any dream or hope of things getting better.

    You've got to have a passion, as well as having a purpose that you've planned to attain in your life in order to wake up feeling motivated with eagerness. Some tricks that will help you wake up in a healthy mental state is to meditate with a smile on your face directly after waking up, stretching, repeating your definite major purpose in life to yourself through the principle of autosuggestion, cold showers, and changing your physiology.

    Hey guys I need your opinion,
    So i feel as if i have gay OCD and am confused with my sexual orientation. As a small kid I have like women, I remember having my first crush in grade 6 to a girl called Jessica. First time i was ever exposed to porn was actually a gay group orgy and I did feel my penis move and go erect, never had an actually interest in dating men though. Then I first hooked up with a girl when I was 18 and my good it felt amazing and I felt like I was in a different world. After this I kept getting with girls and kept enjoying it. Then one day I decided to watch gay porn since it brought flash backs of that time when I got erect when I was shown gay porn. However when watching it nothing happened and only got a very small grional response. However once i watched straight porn i could easily get erect and masturbate. Since then I got curious and was introduced to shemale porn when looking at a shemale prior yo looking at the genitals and only looking at her boobs and face i could get erect. However, once looking that they had a penis I could not get it up. Then my OCD got worse as I would watch both gay porn and shemale porn and attempt to masturbate to it and feel a sense of relief when I couldn't even get a boner from it. Just to make everything feel good I would switch to lesbian porn or straight porn and within second i would cum. There is also moments that I would even test my self thinking about women and masturbating until i would get a full erection and then switch my thoughts to gay porn where my penis would go limp and could not cum.

    This will still continue as i would even watch gay porn or people and try jerking off and see that nothing could happen, however once switching my thoughts to women and painted nails within seconds i would be erect which brings me relief that it wasn't to men or transgenders.

    The intensity with porn has increased as i have started watching transgender orgys and gay orgies and still haven't been able to get erect when masturbating. However i still don't feel convinced that I am straight

    Can someone please help me,
    Thanks

    A large mug of steaming tea.
    Routine. Keeping my routine is really important to me. If I ruin my routine then I know I start getting a bad mood.
    I think at some point recently, I realised that sleep is the death of me. Sleep causes lethargic behaviour, lethargic behaviour causes boredom. boredom results in being on your computer, noting doing anything productive or even fun, and suddenly you've wasted your day and you've relapsed. If you just wake up and get up and start doing something (anything), then you realise how much better your life is and you won't want to sleep any more once you've woken up.

    Hey man,

    Firstly, there is nothing wrong with being gay or bisexual. Society still has a bit of a stigma against it, but it's getting better over time. So don't feel like it's some sort of test you need to pass and then you are relieved, "oh thank goodness!" It shouldn't be like that at all. You are attracted to whomever you are attracted to.

    Secondly, you do not sound like you are really attracted to men. If you were, you would know it. Stop testing yourself and just be yourself. If later in life you see a real life man and you start thinking about kissing him, then you can re-evaluate. But right now, I would say you are straight but very paranoid indeed. Relax.

    Also, I'm thinking this post should have gone into the Problematic Sexual Behavior forum.

    Cheers,
    CLA
