Psychiatrist said I should take a break from trp, as I'm overthinking and complicating things in a sense. (self.asktrp)

submitted by EvanPetersDouble

I visited a psychiatrist/psychologist a few weeks ago, and he said that I was coping with ocd and overthinking.. Which both basically lead to neediness but I've learnt to hide it from women and others.

Well, I basically had a long discussion with him and he suggested I take a break or even quit visiting TRP. " you're overthinking, along with ocd it will fry your brains. I think it's time for you to quit visiting TRP and maybe all together.. I want you to see this as something you gained great benefits from and as a closed chapter, time to start something new and apply the things you learnt. "

When I asked why, he said " it helped you go to the gym, improve work ethic, become more social but the problem is you're overthinking theory about women and tend to become extreme, what we refer to as borderline (some disorder I don't remember) in your actions" he basically said I go edgelord and tend to think I should next everyone and see them as enemies giving me shit, while most of the time we forget we're just humans and that we should be strong enough to face difficulties rather than escape them, a form of escapism. Told me to quit weed, I did and it's a whole lot better now.

I don't put down easily or next women with the smallest thing, unless they fuck with me and try to mess around with my head or play games. I just tend to think I should next them with the smallest shit, like a shit test (which would mean I can't take up challenges like a man) but I hold on and don't next that easy. Most of the time at least.

He also said I should write down 5 things I'm passionate about and evolve them. And also focus more on my work / mission rather on my relationship or relationships with the other women so that I don't become needy and overthink.

What do you think?


[–]TigerXtrm 201 points202 points  (10 children)

I think he's probably right. You're not the first, and you won't be the last person to take TRP too serious. Many a post in this sub treat it like black or white doctrine, and see a shit test in every question a girl asks.

"What do you want for dinner?"

Holy shit, guys what kind of shit test is this?!

So yeah. Take a break, there's more to life than TRP doctrine and over analyzing female behavior.

[–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 41 points42 points  (0 children)

You're golden.

[–]xXxOrcaxXx 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yep, this is what I figured a long time ago as well. TRP is great to get a general feel for things, but the specifics can get really weird. In the end, different things work for different people. So just because someone posts something here does not mean you should do that as well.

[–]Rndm_010 14 points15 points  (6 children)

That's probably a shit test. She wants you to lead her on what to eat for dinner. lol

[–]horologist2018 364 points365 points  (14 children)

I think your Psychiatrist is significantly more qualified than any of us here, so you should listen to him.

I'm glad he recognizes the positives that TRP has done for you.

Listen to your Doctor. Get off TRP for a while.

[–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 107 points108 points  (12 children)

I think he went full on RP on me. He claims he knows what the main sub is.

[–]StandardDeparture 149 points150 points  (9 children)

Did he offer the secret handshake?

It sounds like your psychiatrist knows a hell of a lot more about RP than most of the users here. I think you should listen to him.

Take what is useful to you and then get out there and use it. And getting passionate about things and working on your mission instead of women is RP 101.

Guy knows his shit.

[–]1morescoobysnacks 78 points79 points  (1 child)

Yep I have to say I'm very surprised at how sound his advice was. Sounds like a great doctor. Listen to him. Too much RP can fuck you up. Balance it out with a lot of real life.

[–]beginner_ 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Agree came here to expect soem blue pilled shit from the doc but nope. Actually good advice: "Go out and apply what you read."

[–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 14 points15 points  (1 child)

He offered me a blunt.

[–]u-had-it-coming 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He told you to get off weed and he gave you a blunt.

Why?

[–]fartlord69 -4 points-3 points  (4 children)

What’s the secret handshake?

High 5 then wiggle your dicks together.

Interlace the dicks when it’s a close friend.

That's awesome.

Listen to your doctor.

[–]Trphello 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, if he had said anything about misogyny or something I wouldn't listen but he seems like an honest person

[–]iintrOOutroo 71 points72 points  (3 children)

Seems like a shit test from the doc.

    And yes, you will fry your brain if you overwork it and it definitely sounds like you are.

    23

    [–]expatriate77 17 points18 points  (0 children)

    I’m also 23 and have come to the same conclusion as your doctor regarding my exposure to the TRP.

    Just like many of the respected contributors here say, TRP is a tool and nothing more. For the newly initiated ( at least when I was) it’s easy to make into a rubric of sorts, checking off the things u do right or wrong and worrying incessantly.

    TRP is the beginning of your journey, not the destination. Think it’s easy to forget that. Take what you’ve learned and focus on implementation instead of conceptualization.

    [–]Gooraba 17 points18 points  (1 child)

    Lots of good advice here, but you always have to keep in mind you have no idea who is behind the computer screen.

    Jesus I need to stop smoking

    [–]DVidojkovic 9 points10 points  (7 children)

    Either stop completely or consume 3 times monthly, unless you are struggling socially when high.

    [–]11NV0K3R 11 points12 points  (5 children)

    I need to stop completely. I'm incapable of not smoking if I have it, it's a gateway to nihilism which is so much better right now than actually dealing with the issues in front of me.

    [–]Theebenedetto 11 points12 points  (1 child)

    Do it man. It took a therapist to suggest it to me too before I gave it a shot. Was easy after the first day. I depended too much on pot. Needed it before shopping, hikes, watching a movie etc. Or just needed to smoke right after work. Gave me anxiety before I smoked. Then anxiety when I smoked. Killed my social skills. Even hours after smoking, I wasn’t 100% social. The stoner mindset gets burned in your sober brain. It’s a crutch. I’m rambling. Good luck

    [–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Do it man. It took a therapist to suggest it to me too before I gave it a shot.

    This! Same here. Next day and up until now it's like I never smoked!

    In general psychiatrists are like rehab for stoners.

    [–]DVidojkovic 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    So you're saying being empty inside and thinking that life has no meaning is better than picking your life up? Those issues you have right now might be small now, but they'll grow bigger later on.

    Learn to cope with stress, problems and fight against them.

    To not take a single hit from the joint/blunt while it is being passed around in your face is what you need discipline or motivation(temporary) for. If you can't handle it just leave the room in which whoever is smoking and come back once they're done.

    If you're surrounded by stoners that do fuck all the whole time then start moving on. You can go monk mode and if you feel generous you can tell your friends to stop stoning themselves to death.

    [–]furcryingoutloud 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    So you're saying being empty inside and thinking that life has no meaning

    I would say it's important to understand that. Life has no inherent meaning. Nothing that will be everlasting because when you die, it's over. When I first read that, I felt like you would be dead inside if that was the thought. But then I realized that knowing the truth is liberating. You have no idea how many fucks fell out of my pocket when I began to really understand the meaningless of life. I can truly say today that I have very little fucks left to give and the ones that I do have I save to give them up to stay curious.

    Curiosity. Now that is what I call living. It's actually what keeps me alive. Wanting to see, curious about tomorrow and the years to come. Everything else is just bullshit to me.

    [–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I'm with you.

    [–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Still a 'firm-no' believer. One needs to quit cold turkey.

    'Weed is not for everyone.'

    [–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

    I used to be a sick to the bone stoner. Every-fucking-day wouldn't seem great without a bit of 'green' in it. I ended up spending my money to weed, taking advantage of people I did or didn't even like just to get a few 'puffs' from their blunts, and go home every night feeling empty and a 'wreck' of the person I previously was. It distracted me from studying in university and led me to fall back, lose friends and next everything just for a single joint.

    Does that sound familiar? Well I have to tell you I smoked only 2 times a week and only had 2-3 puffs from the joint before I visited the doctor, after visiting besides all things I don't smoke at all.

    People offered me to smoke, I said nah I'm fine. I never believed I would say that myself, but I did. Looks like you can too. Good luck and PM me if you feel like you want further support.

    Edit: Where I live it's difficult to find clean quality strains, it's usually laced since the time it's grown and also illegal. Plus at one time I caught fucking oneitis because I fucked my girlfriend BDSM style while high. Weed can cause far too many mental issues as it fucks with feelings and brain chemistry more than anything non-drug related does. Felt like everyone was out to 'shit on me' +Plus - it leads to overthinking eventually semi-permanently. Let it go man.

    [–]someonesopinion6969 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    why is enjoying fucking your girlfriend rough a bad thing? sex isn't an experience for sissified men

    [–]ChadTheWaiter100 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Sex on weed is amazing. How did you catch oneitis from having sex one time with a gf

    [–]ahackercalled4chan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    same here. been struggling with quitting all year.

    time to nut-up or shut-up.

    [–]dani098 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Sounds about right for most the people on here

    [–]DatingTank 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Trp can most definitely result in analysis paralysis. I'll say a break once in a while is as necessary as restitution is for lifting. Take a one or three month no-TRP, and while you're at it, unsign from newsletters and don't consume other "content". If the thought of that fills you with anxiety, you DEFINITELY need to take a break.

    [–]mickey__ 5 points6 points  (4 children)

    I have same problem as you do! I’m afraid to ‘miss something’ if i stop visiting this sub and also i’m not testing enough everything i’ve learned so far

    [–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 5 points6 points  (3 children)

    To quote GayLubeOil up there.

    Every ideology does that including your therapist

    [–]mickey__ 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    What’s your solution from now on?

    [–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Just what the other users said. Trp is not a religion. Just a philosophy/praxeology.

    [–]mickey__ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I think i’m using it as a cope mechanism to, avoidance of doing stuff. Now my plan is to either limit internet to an hour a day or going fully without any of these (youtube, reddit, forums, blogs etc.)

    [–]1Shyrk 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    There is a reason that everyone who red pills themselves eventually pulls off the sub for a while. It is in fact, exhausting to keep up with all of this when it’s not natural to you. What do you internalize a lot, and start living your life based on these principles, it’s only healthy to take a bit of a break to let your brain relax a bit.

    this is what your doctor is telling you. What you get your Shit sorted little more, you may feel honored to come back and refresh. Do it if so.

    [–]mushroom_overlord 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Sounds like they know what they're talking about. The key is that they aren't conditioned to hate philosophies such as TRP before seeing what they can do; he sees. So this in addition to him being a qualified psychiatrist makes me think he had the right idea.

    [–]1redhawkes 18 points19 points  (1 child)

    You're 'suffering' from cognitive dissonance, that's why your brain puts you in the analysis paralysis mode. Look at your post history.

    First thing you need to do, is building a base so you can build your experience on it. That means, stop reading until you get the basics internalized (the sidebar). Once you got that, it's easy to build blocks on a solid foundation.

    [–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Agreed. I have made a lot of progress yet my beliefs contradict my actions, I still believe that I'm in some blue pill values but most of the time try to act RP against them, at least the way I interpret RP.

    [–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I want you to see this as something you gained great benefits from and as a closed chapter, time to start something new and apply the things you learnt.

    Fine in theory, but very easy to back slide without the constant reminders of reality.

    After you've stopped overreacting to TRP (anger phase), you'll settle down and use it productively.

    He also said I should write down 5 things I'm passionate about and evolve them. And also focus more on my work / mission rather on my relationship or relationships with the other women so that I don't become needy and overthink

    Yes and no. Focus on yourself, of which women is a part. It's generally worth focusing on women for a while until you know deep down within yourself how to do it. That way you don't get oneitis as badly. But yes, you should focus on other passions too.

    [–]ArnoldBateman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Sounds look a good doctor. He didn't tell you to do anything contrary to TRP either. He's encouraging you to work on/find your mission.

    [–]RedSkeller 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Take a break it's not going anywhere, I'd listen to a paid professional over the clowns here - myself included. At the end of the day, it's what works and makes sense for you. If anything is fucking that up you need to take a long look at it and reflect. We'll be here when you sort it out, best of luck brother.

    [–]DramaticGolf 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    i think he's absolutely right. a lot of people here suffer from edgelord syndrome and they need to really step the fuck back and realize not everythings a stupid shit test, not everyones out to fuck u over but when you only are on trp it feels that way. Trp, as useful as it is, is also a massive echo chamber of people who've been fucked over in some way and so it gets really easy to believe that the world is always like that. It isnt. And if it makes your ocd or neuroticism worse, then u need to lay off it and learn to enjoy that life has its good parts too. take his advice

    [–]leidogbei 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    you can't overthink what you internalize.

    [–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Edgelordy as fuck but also makes sense. It's powertalk I sense here, I get a lot of hidden meanings behind your sentence that put me in thoughts. Good.

    [–]bbcbarbarossa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    He's not wrong.

    [–]Prysefighter 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Well which is it? A psychiatrist and psychologist are two vastly different jobs. 2nd they are a trained professional and know you better than random folks on the internet so listen to them. Also dude TRP has a lot of nasty random parts where people are deflecting self-esteem or other issues onto woman and society. The Red Pill literally is that women naturally gravitate towards superior offerings in partners and that by making ourselves one (superior) we "win" the game of romance, sex, excetra. Thats it. It's harsh but also reduces stress in that now we know what works. Don't be one of those guys who treats this like a religion and buries themselves too deep thinking exactly copying someone's life or following their advice equals perfect happiness or solving of mental issues.

    Workout until you enjoy what you see in the mirror, pursue career/hobby/passions until you smile when your head hits the pillow at night. Let your interactions with woman be about what you want instead of out of insecurities or fear of what might happen. Thats all you need to focus on. Don't overthink.

    [–]Prysefighter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Also it's Borderline Personality Disorder.

    [–]ChadTheWaiter100 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Trp only has so much info. After a while you start to spin your wheels. It’s not something that you need to check every day. You’ve derived this info, taken what parts you want from it, stored it into your long term memory and now it’s time to move on.

    [–]TRP VanguardWhisper 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Psychiatrist told you what to do.

    How about you tell you what to do? Do you want to take a break? Do you think you would prosper more if you did that, or less?

    That's the only bit that matters.

    I'm not here to tell you what to do... only what I think. If this head shrinker is worth anything, he'll say the same of himself.

    [–]Endorsed Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 7 points8 points  (9 children)

    Translation: The Red Pill is good because it helped you get past the hedonic disphoria culturally imposed by the system. But now it's time to drop all that crazy talk and make money for the system.

    The purpose of a psychologist isnt to discuss social political issues it's to reintegrate bent cogs back into the system. He's doing a great job of that 10/10.

    I'm not making a value judgment I'm just showing you the game being played.

    Show him this comment.

    [–]self-medicate 17 points18 points  (1 child)

    Though I generally agree what you’re saying, I think what he recommended for OP is right. There are a lot of guys who take TRP as gospel and miss the value from understanding the ideology. It’s easy to get worked up in the theory, like those guys who make posts about internal contradictions of TRP and miss the big picture.

    At the same time it’s important to understand that, like TRP, a psychologist serves a function - the understanding of which is necessary so you don’t end up following them like gospel as well. I also have a therapist and he’s pretty helpful but he has his limitations.

    Also just because reintegration into societal norm benefits society doesn’t mean it doesn’t benefit the individual either. Though deviating from the norm isn’t a bad thing, some people can’t take the backlash.

    [–]Endorsed Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 20 points21 points  (0 children)

    I wish we could see a video of a Psychologists response to Red Pills response to a psychologists response to the Red Pill.

    [–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 4 points5 points  (4 children)

    It's an honor to have a comment by the great gaylubeoil.

    Lol I'm so tempted to show him but I stopped visiting from the first time I stepped foot in there.

    What would you say if I said that trp instills fear in the reader, that if they stray from the sidebar life will get fucked up, so that they revisit and need trp?

    Foof for thought.

    [–]icecruzader 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Dont take it so literally. We can't all have the exact same frame. Look at stoicism online

    [–]Endorsed Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    Every ideology does that including your therapist

    [–]EvanPetersDouble[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Agreed! Wow your critical thinking is off the edge, really sharp as fuck mate.

    He told me to let him be the 'maestro' and governor of the ship now. Which I genuinely disliked and so I left.

    No-one should be the master of my life, not even trp. TRP is to make a man not give a fuck as to do what the fuck he wants and take over his own life, also accept responsibilities when he fucks up, we all fuck up as humans through our lifespan on earth. I struggle with cognitive dissonance though and like the guy up there said I have internal contradictions, probably, not for sure. Maybe I'm mental. Anyway good to go.

    [–]donkeydodo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I believe your problem is that you’re trying too hard to fit the TRP profile, because I recognize myself in you. I’m an analyzer and overthinker, so naturally when I started reading TRP I started seeing TRP theories everywhere; almost every social interaction became a ’ah, it’s one of these cases’. At first, I started gaming girls more, but after 3 months, it started to backfire. I had read too much deep theory TRP (illimitablemen and other stuff) so I had become very cynical instead. My gaming went down, because I started leaning towards MGTOW. I forgot my natural charm, which was how I got girls before. When I started reading TRP, I was already 80% redpill, I had most of it since before but lacked a few key components. Now, I’ve internalized TRP and all the knowledge I have, I understand but I don’t necessarily check myself after that knowledge, I choose for the situation.

    What really made me change though was an intense LSD trip with a girl in which we had 12h sex; long story short, I understood EVERYTHING revolving girl’s sexuality and social cues

    [–]LoveLord1000 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    What exactly is hedonic disphoria?

    [–]Endorsed Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    It's a disassociative state where you pleasure yourself but are miserable

    [–]ImproveCunt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    We don't know. Neither does your psychiatrist. Only future you knows.

    Do one of those shitty email future me services and send an email to yourself in 6 months. Just put "You should be x, y and z. Are you on the path?"

    Put the subject as TRP. When you read it you'll notice you're close to or have smashed your 6 month goals. Or you'll realise leaving TRP made you less focused and you'll be reminded to come back, and can share the experience with us.

    Good luck.

    [–]Magnum994 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    You would get the same answer from a woman, just in a different way. You really don’t expect psychiatrist to say: Yep, go fuck’em boi... He is working for society, he sees all this as a small kids game. “Now now little kid, it’s time for you to make your mommy proud.” I bet you wouldn’t listen to him if he said it like that, but of course it’s easier to listen the crabs in the bucket and just relax.

    When I started training and became quite muscular, I was talking one day to a friend who was very muscular guy about how I count my calorie intake and he just insisted that I don’t need to do that, because he eats depending on how hungry he is and even eats a lot of sweets. The same guy had a bodyfat of under 12 percent and took DEXA scans every few months. After I got even more muscular I once met him I told him with a smirk: “At least for once you were right, fuck calorie counting, now I eat only cakes and chocolates and I have never been in better shape.”

    [–]empatheticapathetic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Good suggestion. If you don't decide to it most likely will happen naturally over time. It did for me anyway.

    [–]Ivabighairy1 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    Not much we can tell you if you're OCD. He would know better how to handle it. Glad you found one that isn't a sissy sauce. As for the overthinking, not much to over think. You know the theory. Now just put it into practice.

    [–]Rkingpin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Glad to see a man with RP principles in a profession like that

    [–]TitsAndWhiskey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Sperglords gonna sperg. TRP is a philosophy, not an instruction manual.

    [–]SmartAdhesiveness 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I agree with those who say he gave you good advice.

    Part of taking the Red Pill for a man is realizing it is a mistake to look to women for fulfillment. Instead, we have to find fulfillment through setting and teaching our own goals.

    I think your psychiatrist was encouraging you to apply that lesson... get out your journal, write down a few goals, and act. (Red Pill men act, rather than over analyze.)

    When you are busy doing things that advance your goals, you will attract the right kinds of people to you, including women.

    Good luck.

    [–]Thizzlebot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I personally hate therapists and think its a jerkoff career but thats some pretty solid advice. You also have to remember a lot of people that post here are role players and say shit like "NEXT BRUH ITS IN THE SIDEBAR!", life isn't so black and white.

    [–]Yesman3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    What benefits from not smoking weed anymore does TRP imply?

    [–]5xEBITDA 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Agree fully with your psychiatrist. To me, TRP is about becoming a better man and mastering all areas of life (physical health, emotional health, finances, career etc..). Knowing how to navigate the mind field that is women is just another faucet of it, your focus should never be predicated on women - but instead improving yourself.

    [–]TGL-Jesse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Cool doc, but if you were really taking trp that serious you’d know not to talk about trp to others...

    [–]sd4c 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Beat his ass, then sleep with his wife

    (joking, if he sees benefits of TRP at all he's a decent shrink and human being)

    [–]TheStumblingWolf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Normally I'd say overthinking is a normal process when getting into something new. I did it too. It's a complicated thing to get into. But with OCD I don't know - might be different.

    [–]faustian_talos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Mmm...

    Taking for granted that this is a true story, you should sit down and be honest with yourself.

    If you do believe that you might have BDP - you need medical help ASAP.

    On the other hand...just for not worshiping woman makes you a candidate for BDP? Well..

    [–]MakeMenGreatAgain44 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    Go low carb too. It will help sharpen the mind. Ocd thoughts have decreased when I quit carbs. And I see things much more clearly. No fogginess

    I follow a carb diet cus I'm bulking at the gym. What's the alternative?

    [–]MakeMenGreatAgain44 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Look man I was just recently done with that. I went high carb to bulk. Now, it was successful but my heart rate went up as well as my blood pressure. Was foggy as hell and moody. Went low carb (less than 30g per day) and bam, clarity!

    Now I know you want to bulk and believe me you can on low carb. Just increase the number of meals like you would normally on a bulk. You won't gain the same as on a carb diet but you 'll still make lean mass gains.

    I never thought I'd see a psychiatrist give decent advice after knowing about TRP.

    But he's right, you should listen to him.

    [–]MGRaiden97 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    He's right. Im fairly successful on my own with women so I read trp with a grain of salt, but let me tell you that most of trp info that is spread around is a result of overthinking. Trp is a subreddit people use because they don't understand girls, think about that...

    Who of you guys is OP's psychiatrist?

    [–]kagewolf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    TRP is honestly meant to help you transition from one point of your life to another, that’s it. Lifting, what kind of diet you should have, gaming women, getting control of your finances, and just becoming the best possible version of yourself is a journey that TRP helps you out on. Alas, there’s meant to be that one day when people are meant to click that unsubscribe button, while also spreading the knowledge that they’ve learned. What I’ve seen is a few guys who do use this sub and the main one as a crutch though. Don’t be like them, and definitely don’t use weed as a crutch, although it sounds as if you’re taking steps to negate that issue.

    He's trying to make you beta. Did you escalate? Push pull? AA?

    If he's talking about Borderline Personality Disorder, be wary. That's a pretty extreme diagnosis.

    Psychiatrists are useful, don't get me wrong, but if he's going to accuse you of being BPD for not putting women on a pedestal you should be very much concerned.

    On the off chance that you actually have BPD, listen to the man. I'm just concerned that he's seeing "extreme" behavior that really isn't that extreme, then applying BPD to you. If he reached the conclusion for behavior *outside of TRP* fair enough, however simply visiting and overthinking about TRP isn't "extreme" in and of itself.

    BPD is serious shit though, and if that's what he referenced, pay attention man.

    His testimony sounded pretty BPD if you ask me...

    [–]KrustyKrabReject 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    1. Don't waste your money or time with a psychiatrist if they are prescribing you medicine without addressing your diet/exercise regiment. Meds are an absolute last resort.. He sounds wise/knowledgeable dude, but you are simply a customer at the end of the day and what is motivating him not to get his stipend for handing out SSRI's like candy? If he is indeed approaching your brain with a holistic/objective take on your long term happiness (unlikely), disregard this point.
    2. Research low carb/ no grain, Inositol, HTP 5, CBD Oil and any nutritional deficiency you may be experiencing. 90% of the serotonin (which OCD is directly linked to) is found in your gut and you need to address the fundamental reasoning for your obsessions.
    3. Your addiction to marijuana was directly correlated to your serotonin imbalance. As are the loops of obsessional thinking you are experiencing right now.

    Follow through with #2 and reassess where you are in month. No need to thank me.

    The Red Pill is the truth. At some point, you understand female nature. You understand hypergamy. You understand women's dual mating strategy. You've taken pussy off the pedestal and can take it or leave it.

    Do you dwell on the sky being blue? Or that most people aren't qualified to be CEOs of Fortune 500 companies?

    Are there any other self-evident truths that you dwell on?

    Ya bud, if you're becoming obsessed you should chill.

    Check it something called monk mode, I am trying to use that to help me. I use the dichotomy and trichotomy of success. It’s all about focusing on your weaknesses and strengths.

    [–]furcryingoutloud -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

    This is going to sound crazy, but you don't have to stop TRP. TRP is not a drug, or a religion. It's simply the plain truth. Unadulterated, naked, raw.

    Of course it's going to fuck with your head. Of course you're going to be constantly thinking about the RP way of life. But I'm sorry to say that your doctor's request is not going to help you. The problem is not TRP, the problem is not weed, the problem is not drugs. The problem is you. Removing stuff from your life in order to fix you is the equivalent of treating you like a victim. A baby. A child who cannot take care of himself, so he needs someone to tell him what is and isn't good for him.

    I think that what you need to understand about TRP is that it isn't a game played to earn points and points are not deducted when you fuck up. Fucking up is part of the game. The only people who don't fuck up are the ones that do nothing. The bigger fuckup is in failing to learn from a fuckup. TRP teaches you why a fuckup is a fuckup, and how to fix it or prevent it.

    TRP is a road map. A tool. Think of it as a salesman's guide. Do this or say this if you want to get more sales. Of course it's more than that, and it should be. But no, nobody is going to punish you because you had a blue moment. As a matter of fact, I believe TRP has to be finely mixed in with blue pill tendencies in order for it to work. Only when you're TRP, you apply the blue tendencies knowing that you are applying them and probably have a method in place.

    No need for anyone to stop TRP, what you have to stop is taking IT and yourself so seriously. Why? because in the end, it doesn't matter. Live and enjoy your life. Do it for you. And no need to stop reading TRP, just stop being dependent on anything by being aware. Learn to control your mind. And jeez, treating yourself like a child is not the solution. You're a man, you should be in control. But at the same time, know that it takes time to achieve this control. At least you have the knowledge, now take your time and build yourself right.

    You're overthinking it.

    You're needy because you don't have women in your life. Learn game and fuck bitches.
