is the "ill show them." mentality a cringy way to motivate yourself?
>>

>cringy way to motivate yourself

What does that even mean you fucking millennial
>>

Not at all

Schadenfreude is a legitimate strategy and you're a pussy
>>
yeah but it's only cringey if you tell people about it
>>
>>35705555
If the motivation sticks long enough, it will become habit, then the act will become it's own motivation.

Just make sure your "I'll show them" is potent enough to last a few months, and you're good. Otherwise. You'll feel like a shitty failure, and you never have shown them.
>>
>>35705555
Using any trope that's common to animu does seem a little cringie
>>
>>35705555
Yeah it is.

It makes it about others, not yourself. It becomes more about resenting others and justification through others than yourself. Of course we need a mix of both, but the "I'll show them" is fucking beta.

It's fine to use it as a fuel, but it's a means to an end, not the end itself. It's a stepping stone I guess to that realization.
>>
>>35705555
I don't think so, success is the best revenge, after all. I started that way and it turned into making myself better for me, but still, there is the aspect that you are better than others because you choose to be. I'd say it's a good starting motivation, then the focus becomes improvement for improvements sake.
>>
>>35705602
"I'll show them" is not Schademfreude

t. pro
>>
isnt life itself all about being better than other people?

fucking hotter girls?

making more money?

living better than other people?

dont see the problem desu, you should want to be better than other people.

On that subject, a story for you /fit/izens.
>be me, 19, fatass kissless virgin
>carried weight proportionately, but still fatass
>with group of friends, meet 7/10 who I thought was 10/10 (nogf goggles)
>call her later and ask her out
>take her to lunch, pay for her
>ask her if she'd like to go out again
>she says yes
>take her out several more times, always pay, figure these are dates
Break in the story to say, I know she wasn't obligated to find me attractive just because "muh nice guy." I was fat, I wasn't attractive. It's my own fault I allowed myself to be used, I am aware of that. The friendzoning went on for two years total.
>tell her I love her
>she asks me to wait till school is out b/c she's too busy for a bf right now
>apparently not too busy to go on dates though
>find out she's been fucking guys on the side like a grade A slut
>she gets knocked up by abusive ex bf
>wtaf.jpg
>draw a line in the sand, cut it off with her
>6 months beta bitch depression
>dawnofanewday.org
>lift, diet, cardio
>get fit, drop 120lbs in a year
>don't recognize when girls flirt because I've never seen it

What? Of course not. Anything that motivates you is good enough.
>>
>>35705917
where is the rest faggot? I hope this ends well because something similar just happened to me.
>>
>>35705555

What. Would it matter? I mean unless ur literally shoutinng "ill show them!!" how would anyone. But u actually know?

>"Anon?? Wow, you look great!"
>"wow, hi, yeah, lost some weight"
>and apparently you found it
>"well hey, do you want to get some lunch?"
>evil grin
>"yeah that'd be cool, where do you want to go?"
>suggests an expensive restaurant
>"sounds good, anonette"
>we go, I order grilled chicken salad and water
>she orders fatass expensive meal with soda
>kids meals for her bastard kids
>whole damn meal is spent complaining about how hard it is to be a single mom, finances, etc.
>qt waitress asks about dessert
>"what do you think anon?"
>"go for it" grinning cause I know she thinks I'm paying
>orders dessert
>waitress comes back
>"one check for you and your girlfriend?"
>anonette smiles at me
>smile back
>"actually, we're just friends catching up, separate checks please, and actually, I have the cash"
>drop 20 for a 15 dollar bill
>cheeky wink at waitress, "great service by the way"
>say goodbye to anonette, leaving her with her jaw dropped and wondering how she's going to pay for her fifty odd dollar meal
>see the waitress on my way out, get her number
>call two days later and end up fucking

It's not the spotlight glory of "WITNESS ME, WORLD!" but it made me happy.
>>
>>35705717
Your life must be pretty sad if it only revolves about trying to be better than others.
What about just having fun and enjoying yourself?

I agree with you. But you're on /fit/ mate. Like 90% of the people here were emotionally and socially stunted somewhere around 15-20.

It's gonna be okay breh
Last year I found out my gf of five years had been having an months long affair with her best friends boyfriend
Her friend called me at work crying because she had a bad feeling and looked at her boyfriends email and found out
I threw her out and she left town a few months later
Now I've been dating her former best friend and she's waaay better in every way
Pretty hard getting over everything especially after that long of a relationship but we're still young and have lots of time

We're all gonna make it

Man i got the feels while watching Pumping Iron, you could see how crushed he was after he got rekt by that other munching cheeky twat.
I read his wiki page afterwards, poor guy never made it
>>
>>35705555
Instead of focusing on the people who doubt you, why not make it about yourself? Seems like getting fit would be more enjoyable.

This was the reason I started lifting in high school and for the years afterwards. Being fatasfatass, needless to say it never motivated me enough to stick with it.

I'm at it again and my motivation is to have more energy, more mobility, and to better protect my body from injury. My gf and I are also talking about having kids in the next few years and I want to be able to keep up with my future children.

And have them brag to their friends that I can beat up their dads.

That's too bad bruh, you are going to make it. Don't worry.

I feel you brother. Good on you to put that energy where it matters. Maybe you'll look back on this and see your decision to turn that rage to improvement instead of self-destruction as the best choice you ever made.

The line between fantasy and reality is your fucking couch. You think this can't happen, so guess how I know you're never gonna make it.

No, its what society is about. Life could be your relationship with others, interactions, rather than trying to compete all the time.

What the fuck is "Rusty Fenders?"
>>
>>35708252

Wait a SEC!

In that comic, NOBODY was picking on the chubby averagey looking guy.

They were in happy relationships, and he was single.

NOT GETTING LAID is NOT the same as you getting BULLIED and LAUGHED at!
>>
>>35706249
Sorry that you have those shitty feelings but were able to get something out of it.
>>
>>35705555
After watching Pumping Iron, the big takeaway from the Mike Katz segment was that no matter how much you lift, it won't change your beta personality; only you can change that.

>Katz(Jew Beta): "Oh boy, I can't wait to wear my blue crusher shirt before the big contest!"
>Evil Alpha Ginger: "I'm not worried about Katz. I stole his blue crusher shirt just to mess with him"
>>
It is if you go around like some naruto faggot telling people you'll show them. Just eat lift get good sleep and let the results speak for themselves .
>>
>>35710223
In pumping iron he explains how he was made fun of as a kid for many reasons, one of which was his ratty old bicycle with "rusty fenders"
