    [–] [Woj] TSN Report: Raps nearly got Mirotic on Thursday baconperogies 0 points ago in torontoraptors

    Looked up some highlights from Mirotic to see what we were up against (when playing the Bucks) and he looks really solid.

    UFA after this season though so he's going to cost a pretty penny.

    I don't think you need to 'wait' until things are dire to see a therapist. These are professionals at listening and providing solutions to see through your problems. I have the utmost of respect for people who seek therapy. It takes a lot of courage to admit your shortfalls and call for help. It also takes a lot of strength to get there too. I hope you find your answers. Hang in there :)

    Hey friend. It sounds like you're carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. That's a lot to bear for anybody. Injuring yourself is never recommended. I think you know that too. Have you ever sought counselling or considering seeing a therapist? I used to think it was all willy nilly until I tried it. It helps immensely. Thanks for sharing what you're going through. It's a good reminder that none of us has it all together and that while we 'look' okay on the outside, many of us are really struggling. Maybe your story could help others along the way? I hope you're able to find a few close friends to share this with. You're not alone.

    Which is an okay problem to have! It takes a lifetime to 'get to know yourself'. Be gracious to yourself and forgive yourself. None of us has it 'all together' no matter how good people might look on the outside.

    Regarding making new friends, it boils down to time, energy & reciprocation.

    You're in full control of the first two! Check out meetup.com or other random social sites where strangers meet for a hobby/sport/language exchange etc. Be bold & courageous - everyone is a stranger until they are your friend.

    Don't think so much about how to act etc. Practice makes perfect. People are more worried about themselves to think so much about other people.

    If you're nervous about socializing, just keep at it. Ask questions. If anything people can always talk about themselves. Read social cues better and move on from the conversation if it gets weird/awkward or you don't feel comfortable.

    You're 23 and just newly graduated. It can be a confusing time for most people. You're earning a bit of money now and likely more and more financially independent. Why not take a trip to a nearby country? Spend a weekend partying somewhere? Stay at a hostel and meet new friends? Go find a volunteering organization and commit to it for 3 months. There's so much to see and do. Life is what you make of it.

    If you're losing hope, find something in your life today (and every day) that you're grateful for. There's ALWAYS something to be grateful for.

    Thanks for sharing and keep smiling. It's contagious. :)
