How can I resist the urge to be a dick?

I appreciate you not being caustic. This is as you said, a support thread. I need help.

Now that you mention it, the person has to give a shit for it to satisfy my urges.

Interesting, very interesting.

Then perhaps your solution is to hang around people with thicker skin until you lose the habit Big Grin

RE: How can I resist the urge to be a dick?
I am NOT a psychologist, but there is a line of thought that some people suffering depression (even unrecognized or undiagnosed) can be very mean/irritable and show little empathy to others.

Would it be helpful for you to see someone to talk about this and find out what's going on upstairs?

Go see a therapist.
You have something eating at you.
You probably know what that is.

So I go see a shrink for being a dick? How do I explain that on the paperwork?

That being said, this section is also not to be used to mock, or make light of, the serious problems of others by pretending to have a problem.

RE: How can I resist the urge to be a dick?
No clue, I don't give much effort to not because interacting with people is less often entertaining.

I font get the what I assume many people seem to equate to get, emotional or simply base chemicals like dopamine boost being a dick or being overly polite to people. So maybe not care, idk.
