    Thanks, my bunny buddy! Reading this, at this time in my life, was much needed.

    When we're nearing the finish line, it's all about what I call the "rocking chair memories".

    We're making them now.

    Our basket can be filled with goodies, warm memories, contentment, and happiness, of a life squeezed for all its potential.

    Or not.

    Up to us.

    Life: OWN IT!

    What an incredible post. I feel like someone just injected a vial of caffeine into my arm.

    I fucking hate self-help.

    For example, the post contained the line "you vs the world". So apparently, on the one hand, you are being told you are great, a winner, beautiful person etc., on the other, I am being told that you are part of this hostile "world" which I have the power to rise above and should actively seek to take advantage of for my own benefit!

    Basically it's just sowing the seeds of mutual backstabbing amongst normal, honest people, while they get fucked from above (and self-help philosophy is the lubrication).
    "Of course we spent our money in the good times. That's what you're supposed to do in good times! You can't save money in the good times. Then they wouldn't be good times, they'd be 'preparation for the bad times' times."

    "Every country in the world owes money. Everyone. So heere's what I dont get: who do they all owe it to, and why don't we just kill the bastard and relax?"

    Replace the word "you" with the phrase "working class", and it's practically the same as the Communist Manifesto.

    Embrace optimism and self help. The only thing you have to lose are your psychological chains.

    Thank you Halla for taking the time to encourage. We need people who encourage, who help plant self worth in others. I truly appreciate your charisma and positive outlook.

    Except that it emphasizes the individual in competition against all others rather than the solidlidarity of the collective, and is therefore the highest form of misanthropy and subsequently nefarious.

    I don't have such a shattered ego that I would need to turn to such a thing.
