In the past in high school, I barely had any experience talking to girls. But now, with Nofap, since I've gained the confidence, I often interact with girls in college. I've often had this idea that talking to a lot of girls will bring happiness into my life. But the truth is that girls won't fill in that void. Sure, I've had days where I've had awesome interactions with cute girls and feel so satisfied those days. But then there are also days in which I have less interactions with girls, and then I start feeling sad. I see cute girls around everywhere, and sometimes it makes me feel sad. Because I just feel talking to every single one of them, with the idea that it will give me happiness and satisfaction. But I realized that that's not true. That mindset is kind of the same as how short term pleasure works. You'll feel great when you have some experience with girl(s). But then after it's over, you always want more and more, to feel satisfied. And girls won't fill in the void to give you eternal satisfaction. By this post, I'm not saying to forget about girls. Girls are cool people, and it can be nice interacting with them. But my point is to not make girls a priority towards your happiness. Long term happiness will come from working on your own self. Have a real passion for something. Pursue a goal and work towards achieving it. Make Nofap the backbone of your life and work on building yourself.
