>>16739824 I am generally negative towards people too.
Personally, I've just learned to grit my teeth and carve out a smile. Just agree with people until they shut up about it unless it actually involves me. I don't have many friends. My SO is just as annoyed with the human race as I am, so it is comforting to have someone to spill it all out to. But my SO occasionally gets on my nerves too.
I don't keep many deep relationships. I keep things light and "acquaintancey" because once you get to actually know people, the bullshit comes out and you see how irrational and selfish everyone is.
I've never been one to crave friendships or going out, so it personally works for me. I keep distanced acquaintanceships with people I am forced to be around.
I honestly feel like most people are this way though.
>>16739875 I made friends easily when I was younger. I think I just started realizing the discomfort is caused me. When more and more people approached me wanting to be friends, I started doing subtle impulsive behaviors to keep them pleased, but not wanting to be friends.
Like, not always responding, but being polite whenever I see them in person. Cancelling, but blaming it on important things (family, work, etc). Also, vacantly listening and giving neutral responses. Reserved body language. It makes people alright enough with you to not socially outcast you, but not close enough to be friends.
I've found my balance. Faking smiles is for new people that I don't want to know. The behaviors I listed above are for my acquaintances.
You know in Dungeons and Dragons on the alignment. If 4chan was a person it would be True Neutral. You gotta realize kid this place that you are just starting to see the internet and perhaps the world. This place has some dark shit in it too from time to time. You are 18 now and like me you are going to see some nasty stuff but you got to be smart. I've been in the streets and used the same rules I learned here.
I feel like I'm coming off like some neo noir detective? Yeah Cyberpunk is my world by the way. You know that dog you hear barking nonstop and you walk by it and it may growl from time to time. Yeah treat mean people here like that. Be on by. Believe me I made mistakes a lot. And I mean a lot in life was not perfect. Humiliated myself in every way possible but went with the right decision every step of the way.
In fact people here may compare me to the 27 year old playing Counter Strike yelling at his mom to get his hot-pockets.
>>16739989 I didn't mean you offended-offended me, I didn't mean you hurt my feelings. I guess I mean you posted something that was intended for me to get upset about. Just a ruthless comment/shitpost. I'm just saying that I agree that I've seen you post horrible shit before and I've been one of your "victims." Yet, here we are and I can only recognize you because of your name, but since I am anon, you would have never known unless I said it.
I dunno, I just didn't respond to your comment. Forgot what it was about, it was a few weeks or a month ago or somethin.
>>16739784 >How do you be nice to people when you hate them? I recognize that they, being people, believe, and do things that dont make sense to me, upset me, or harm me, but also recognize that I am the same from their perspective. It also helps to recognize the transient nature of negative passions and quickly snuff them out.
>>16740165 Eh, perhaps, but what comes to us naturally isn't always beneficial to us. If you're content with who you are, then don't change. If you want to fake being a decent person (in my own terms), then I cant help you there.
>>16740205 Laziness. Pure laziness. Think about the consequences of your actions: >Dad... am I pretty? Boys don't seem to like me >Bitch that's because you don't try and you're biologically ugly. ..... When keeping it real goes real wrong.
