What is Confidence?

I'm starting to get the impression that real confidence and ego confidence are two different things. A lot of people try to persuade you and have the notion that real confidence is being more extraverted or focusing on attainment. Due to meditating over the past decade and an interest in spiritualit...

Re: Is it possible to be happy completely alone?

When people say 'you'll find it within', it implies that it is a thing which its not, so what exactly is it? a belief? a way of thinking? somewhere to direct attention?

Is it possible to be happy completely alone?

I'm in a particular part of my life right now where I feel certain things have run their course. I have things to look forward to but for the foreseeable future (year and a half maybe) I feel i'm pretty much just going to be working and feel a lot of passion and belief has subsided. I feel I'm not i...

The Pull

I feel there's two forces within me pulling at me to go in it's direction, a lot of inner conflict as well. - There's this one side that is more of the rational side, it doesn't want stress and it's been through a lot of pain and wants to let go, enjoy myself and just be. It's the side of you that t...

Is happiness a choice or something to aim for?

Is happiness something we can decide to have right now or do we have to overcome certain obstacles to attain it? I feel as if the external world of form doesn't satisfy me so I look within and there's nothing there so what is going to satisfy me?

How to have more faith and be passionate?

How do I have more faith and believe more in myself and things I want to accomplish. I feel like I seriously lack faith. when you work hard for something you believe that your hard work will pay off but too many setbacks can cause a lack of faith. I don't want to feel held back by my thoughts and do...

What does it mean to be a man?

I'm not sure what it means to be a real man and i'm not sure if a lot of other people do. I don't know why I am telling people this but I feel as if I am at that stage of a young man growing into a fully grown adult and i'm not sure how to embrace it. I've often thought and society has maybe conditi...

How do I get what I want?

If I have a goal I want to achieve, how do I set about to achieve that goal? people tend to say stuff like 'never give up', 'don't let failure deter you' but a lot of the time things just don't work out. Is there a formula to follow in order to achieve something or at least to know you've done your ...

Dealing with people who try to belittle you

How do you deal with people that don't particularly like you and belittle you behind your back? I always have a mature head when something like this happens but I don't quite know how to deal with it. Self respect tends to work but i don't like defending my EGO. I have quite a passive personality so...

Re: Stammering

That does ring a bell to me. the annoying thing is that i know i can speak fluently but for some reason whenever i talk to someone i can barely talk at times so it is obviously a mental thing as opposed to physical

Stammering

I have quite a severe stammer, if I say one fluent sentence and don't stammer it's an achievement for me. I find it quite hard to communicate with people which frustrates me a lot. I'm not sure what brings it on i think maybe stress, self consciousness or caring what people think but it's starting t...

Getting older

I'm nearing my mid twenties so i'm still young but i feel as i'm getting older i'm shedding parts of my ego(if thats the right word to use). For example when your 18 you react differently and certain things are a big deal like relationships etc but as you get older there not a big deal. Kind of like...
