Just a reminder to get out of this shithole while you can.
I was a much happier person before this board.
2 years dedicated to posting on this board, and now i'm ready to leave.
Being happy is nice, but what about ignoring the truth? The reality? Lots of things said here are retarded, on the other hand many things said here are the kind of things people ignore to feel happier in life, because they can't do anything about them. I find myself addicted to reading these things.
If an anonymous image based internet forum keeps you from living your life then you have a big problem.
Most people, I assume, are on here because they have nothing better to do. Not because they prefer browsing this or the internet to living and enjoying their lives.
You think nothing said here is true? I for one believe the manlet "meme", because women hate short men. And in my environment, being under 5'11" is enough to get called short. I also believe in halo effect(how looks determine your life on many levels) and just-world hypothesis(how normies tell themselves that anything good that happened to them is due to hard work, not luck).
That's normie attitude. By your logic snorting cocaine all your life is good. Do you really think being happy means you should do it? That could lead to some pretty self-destructive behavior. But compared to robot attitude, it's not even based on the truth.
>By your logic snorting cocaine all your life is good. Do you really think being happy means you should do it?
No, precisely because it's self-destructive, and self-destruction is not conducive to later happiness.
My philosophy is that if an action will make you or someone else happy in the short, medium or long term AND will not make someone else or yourself unhappy in the short, medium or long term, then it's an action you should blindly do. It's also probably an action that does not exist. Other than that, it's mostly risk-and-reward mechanisms. And I think being willfully oblivious to the truth is unlikely to hurt me in any kind of term, while it will certainly make me happier, so there you have it.
What you're saying makes sense. It really does. I have only question, HOW? How to do this? Whenever I try, I got back to my old mindset once the reality comes crashing on me like a wall of bricks. And trust me, it does. Ignoring the truth to be happy seems to be something I can't do unless I'm extremely drunk. Not even talking moderately drunk as in few shots and I'm a normie. I have to guzzle down 10 pints of beer in few hours or half a liter of 40% booze to feel like you describe. I can't seem to do it sober because the reality always comes back to bite me in the ass.
>I have only question, HOW? How to do this?
Education. I was raised in a dysfunctional family, where I was taught since the younger age to pretend everything was going alright whenever it was not crackling shitstorm night. A decade later, and I've mastered the art of escapism and getting back up from curveballs.
