Could you give me the name of your barber? I got my ears lowered the other day that was the total opposite.
The bloke did the mirror to the back of the head routine, all chuffed with himself, and I just said "yep, that's a haircut".
Is that you, Scott Tenorman?

This is the 1st time I've seen this thread, I would have loved to post earlier if I had seen it. Anyone know how it feels to deal with a break up just 2-3 weeks back unfortunately? I suffer from anxiety & a tad bit of Autism too unfortunately.

Oof tough one
Try not to dwell on it too much, distract self with things you enjoy - what are your favourite, funny tv shows? Could be good for some rewatch to keep your mind off things if your not dealing with it well (or I’m sure people can make some suggestions)

If you think maybe you’ll get back together or stay friends don’t put too much energy into those thoughts - both are pretty rare - if it would happens it’s not because you try and force it.

Chin up mate, far from the end of the world but can be a big shock to the system especially if you’ve been together a while and/or didn’t see it coming.

Always professional help to manage if it’s weighing on you too much

I'm not worried too much apart from my recent break up, I'm in my late 20's, got lots of good mates and family who aren't worried at all thanks mate. I've got lots of favourite movies & TV shows to watch regularly which I'll never get sick of either.

Better to happen now while you’re still young mate. Enjoy your newfound freedom & as Wiz said don’t be afraid to start swiping.

Might feel huge now but you’ll look back on it in a few years and see it as a good thing, I’m sure

Sounds like you have people u can lean on, which is fantastic. Don’t let alcohol or illicit drugs be one of your coping mechanism because it will make it even harder to get back to your normal self. And if it ended nasty, be the better person and let it go, dont keep the bad blood going.Refer to my mums advise when I was in my 20’s “don’t be with the wrong person in case the right person comes along”

That's no good mate.

I broke up with my Ex wife after 20 years marriage about 12 months ago.

First few months are tough. I found getting some structure/ routine helped.

That could be different for everyone but for me it was little things like keeping the unit where I moved into clean (especially the weeks the kids stayed over), having a close friend / relative that you can talk to that has your back etc.

Happy to discuss further if you want to message me.

The friend part was hard as after being together for over 25 years most of our friends were common.

I also saw a psychologist who helped prioritise what's important in my life and a plan to make that a focus.

Lots of great advice here mate so not much more I can add other than as time goes by, it will get easier.
Stay true to yourself and surround yourself with good friends and family.

Keep your head up and don’t be shy of asking for help.

All the advice on here is good mate .

I know it does not feel like it now - and it’s a cliche - but time heals - and it does get better in time .

As others have said - talk to your friends , get a nice meal for yourself - try not to drink - keep busy …

When I was 19 I packed up everything I owned the moved to Melbourne with my then girlfriend.

Bit over a year later she broke it off and I was heartbroken and homeless.

I had a rough old trot where I wasn't looking after myself and dropped down to 60kgs and was basically couch surfing.

One day I was at a shopping centre and I walked past one of those weird shops with random **** in it, Cardiology or something.

Anyway, there was a fridge magnet they sold there, and it said "A kick up the arse is just a step forward" and just like that a turned a corner.

I'm not saying that fridge magnet quote will get you through, but the moral is that you will eventually reach a moment of clarity, where you will understand everything will be ok and you're future will finally look bright.

Time can heal, and going out and getting your tip wet doesn't hurt either 😉

I also never bought that magnet

it's a little buddies 18th today. He's saying he wants to move to Perth to be with his fling. I might show this to him to help prepare him.

Funny how a little thing can make such a big change. I was spending way to much time playing video games drinking my life away... Got this note in the mail "every journey starts with a step" no idea who sent it but it lit a fire in me. Got rid of the unlimited net, Xbox, computer. Literally went and bought a DVD player just to de-connect from it all a bit. Momentum alone got me to a really good spot, and now I actually remember what this feeling is like, it'll be easier to get out of whatever bad spot that I could find myself in, in the future

Presumably east enough to move back from Perth if it falls down - we’re not that far away

Obviously he should have some concept of that being an eventuality though

Thanks for all the support on here guys, it will get better I'm sure of it, I can tell the 1st few weeks, months will be the toughest but I'm pretty sure it will get better. I've got a lot of mates that are supporting me through this aswell. I've got an appointment with a psychologist I know coming up soon aswell though.

Hope you’re doing ok mate. Just keep your friends and family close is my best advice. Therapy also is massive mate. Well done for taking that step. Should be proud of yourself.

Time heals all buddy. Just take it one day a time and everything will be ok.

I might open up on a few things, which some who know me in person from here might already know.

At the end of 2011, I was recovering from PTSD, which included depression and anxiety. My work place had an opportunity for me to work in Sydney, and they knew my love of footy and Sharks, and basically told me you are going to Sydney and that’s it. Anyways, whilst driving up to Sydney from sunny queenscliffe, Sharks were calling fans to thank them for being a member, and I was lucky to get a call, from one to the wright boys, where we had a good long talk which include encouragement and some coping ways, which players Used.This lovely talk I had actually helped me in many ways, and this was the catalyst to my change in thinking and my want to give back to the sharks community (some of that was seen via shark crew and shark members council).
when I volunteered in the above areas, I never asked for anything, as I was already getting something out of it, which was being at shark Park, making friends and well being more out there (I Was a bit private person and recluse before coming up to Sydney and friendships were within the organisation i was with and the fact I have a speech impediment (cluttering, similar to stuttering).
Since now I have moved on, and bounced around Oz, I look back regularly and i am amazed of the people I met along the way whether that be good bad or indifferent, and have been blessed to have met them.
The things I took out of it all, is be open, honest, and talk. these things helped me improve my mental health.
