Today I’m going to offer you my main advice:
- Just try to have fun, try to fit in a little and try to make a lot of friends.
- Don’t fill your head with opinions, causes and convictions.
- Accept that your mom was wrong, you’re unremarkable. That’s a good thing, it means you don’t have to fix the world’s problems, you can just forget about them.
That’s it. That’s what I have to offer after more than thirty years.
Some of you will call me a hypocrite. Well friends and less friendly LSWMs, who’s going to tell you to stop smoking? The guy dying from lung cancer. Who’s going to tell you to wear a condom? Someone dying of AIDS. Who’s going to give you these three pieces of advice? Yours sincerely.
And I’m not saying I’m unique in this. Most of us now have a habit of filling our heads with information that doesn’t benefit us, because information is more available than ever before. Whatever it is that interests you is something you can now constantly get more information about, every second of the day, without it taking you any real effort.
Ladies, do you think you benefit from figuring out what your old boyfriend is upto? Do you benefit from the ability to gaze into his soul? Probably not. You’re best off learning to adjust to whatever guy you ended up settling for. Sorry. Look away. Stop torturing yourself.
Here’s an example of someone damaged by exposure to too much information:
This is just sad. But it’s not sad enough that you should care, it’s just another random person out there somewhere. You can find millions of people with heads full of opinions, this is just one I find particularly sad.
This woman was once crowned miss New Jersey. When you reward a woman with a prize that tells her “you’re the prettiest one”, you damage her brain. They never recover from the narcissism you install in their heads. So now she hates the Western world. Because the Western world did the worst possible thing to her that you can do to a person: It gave her what she wanted.
If you’re a leftist, you have a huge advantage over me. You believe all human lives have equal value, so you have a perfectly valid excuse not to look at what happens in Gaza and move on with your life. After all, the lives there should matter as much to you as those of kids in Yemen, North Korea, South Sudan, or any other hell on Earth. And you’re not raging about what goes on there either.
But this woman is stuck with the conviction in her head that she needs to defend a bunch of guys who make videos of themselves with the children they kidnapped and dragged off into a warzone and she thinks she needs to spend the whole day tweeting about it. If you tweet more than four times a day, go see a psychiatrist.
I’m sure there’s someone out there who would benefit more from hearing “stand up for yourself and your convictions” or “don’t just mindlessly adjust to the mob” or “have some confidence in your own abilities” or “stop being such a hedonist and seek out the meaning of life”, but that sort of person isn’t going to stumble upon my blog anyway.
In fact, if you think you’re important enough or have anything substantial to contribute to humanity that deserves a “following”, please just go see a therapist. Don’t seek “followers”, seek friends.
So just go out there and seek out the sort of place where people like you hang out and stay there. Yes, that’s probably some big city, where you have to sell your kidney to afford rent.
“But when the dollar collapses and we suffer hyperinflation and the oil prices spike and food prices spike then the cities will become death traps and the minorities will riot and and and-“
Yeah, then you die. Sucks, but it happens. You would have died anyway, but now you skip out on twenty years surviving in a wooden shack in the woods until the arthritis in your hands stops you from plowing the field after everyone you cared about died.
Literally, unironically, 100% seriously, just forget about it all and try to adjust to the normies. Good luck. I mean it.
