How to Deal With Haters

how to deal with hatersHere’s the bottom line up front fellas:

How to Make Decisions: Hunt the Fear

The choices most people make are opiates.  They let you turn you off.  Power down.  They let life just happen around you.  You give in to them, fall asleep, and wake up years later.  You’ll be totally unfulfilled, but too lethargic to care.  Those choices are comfortable.

“Just be yourself,” we are told.

So we remain whatever we are.  We continue doing the things we have always done.  And we don’t get the job, the friend, or the girl.

How to be Honest With Yourself

Being honest about your feelings is unproductive, and to a degree, dishonest.

Yup.  Heres why:

When I say “I am sad about X” I am talking about an unpleasant feeling I had an instant ago.  But the statement “I am sad” refers to me now.  In reality, how I feel now is up to me.
