It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.
You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything.
But in real life, you can’t avoid doing things. We have to earn a living, do our taxes, have difficult conversations sometimes. Human life requires confronting uncertainty and risk, so pressure mounts. Procrastination gives a person a temporary hit of relief from this pressure of “having to do” things, which is a self-rewarding behavior. So it continues and becomes the normal way to respond to these pressures.
Particularly prone to serious procrastination problems are children who grew up with unusually high expectations placed on them. Their older siblings may have been high achievers, leaving big shoes to fill, or their parents may have had neurotic and inhuman expectations of their own, or else they exhibited exceptional talents early on, and thereafter “average” performances were met with concern and suspicion from parents and teachers.

Migraine coming on tonight so I won’t be around much ‘til I can sleep, but wanted to thank everyone who showed me support today after my embarrassing post earlier.
I know it helps to write things down to make them “real”, something you can focus and work on, and sometimes posting issues I deal with helps me to be able to look at the issue more logically, take a step back, as it were.
But time and again I forget people actually message me. People actually care. People I’ve never met, people I don’t know your first name, people I’ve spoken to only twice take time out of their day to say they care. Sorry I’m so crappy like that at times
Thank you, so very much.
When this migraine is better, you can bet your cute bootys I’m gonna be writing more Arcee/Strongarm for all of us. :3
I felt bad that everybody was looking at the old sketch, so I cleaned it up a little. ;~;
okay i just wanted to say that i absolutely love this gif because it looks like one of those gifs where people are just all over the place and its like everyones having issues all at once like you have OP back over there like overheating or something by himself, Bee is trying to do something coherent but gets cut off by crosshairs, who’s doing pretty good until that explosion happens and hes just like “oh shit shit" and spins out and the camera all zooms out like its filmed on home video im laughing so hard its like the gif where everyone forgot how to play hockey all at once
NOW I WISH DRIFT HAD APPEARED AND DRAMATICALLY SMACKED HIS FACE IN THE CAMERA
WHO’S GOING TO DRAW THIS NOW
So my mom is convinced people over the age of 17-18 no longer roleplay. If you’re 17+, would you reblog this so I can prove her wrong?
I’m 27 this year…so….
30 yo, and I’m not even the oldest in my weekly Shadowrun group. I think our eldest might be pushing 50.
I only do that when people can’t get their FUCKING SHIT TOGETHER AND AT LEAST DO THE SPEED LIMIT. Cause if I’m ahead of you or next to you at a red light, that’s better than BEHIND you. Because then i have the freedom when it’s green to get back to going where im going at the best speed possible instead of dawdling the fuck around like some binty asshat.
