You know what? Fuck it. I've started probably less than five threads since I've been on 4chan, but I'm going to post this. Don't care what happens to this thread, as long as he has a chance to see it.
Also look at these fucking Corgis, goddamn they are so cute.
I'd definitely recommend you try it, man. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain back. I myself have not been to therapy, but I have heard from many people that it helped greatly.
And I know what you mean about the daily thought thing. Just gotta keep trucking through.
As for my social anxiety, it's all about taking little steps out of your comfort zone, progressing until you've made significant strides. It's kind of like lifting weights: you don't just go in and start squatting 315 lbs, you work your way up over months and years from a lower weight, adding 5 lbs every time you can until you hit that goal. Just do one thing every day that takes you out of your comfort zone. For me, it was even something as simple and benign as walking near a group of people on my path, instead of diverting my course so I could avoid them. Really small stuff like that. Smile at someone as you walk by. Compliment a person on something you like about them. Spark up a conversation with a stranger. Raise your hand and speak in front of a room full of a hundred people, etc.
I'd say the biggest thing that helped me was just going through basic training. My entire thought process and perspective has changed like night and day. There's just no way you go through something like that without gaining a shit load of confidence. Would recommend to anyone on here considering the military, even despite my own experience with it. Though its not necessary to change yourself and overcome your obstacles.
Also it's important to surround yourself with positive thinking people as well. Being around people who are fired up rubs off on you quickly.
Hope this doesnt 404
I hope you fucking kill yourself.
