[QUOTE=Halla74;1052111]Hmmm, this is th creepy way that religious people talk, i.e. treating disagreement as pathology and offering "sympathy".You make gross generalizations about people who you know very little about.
Happiness and optimism are hardly platitudes.
You have your solutions for life, and I have mine.
Needless hostility is a sign that the aggressor has feelings of inferiority.
If I make a thread arguing for people to accept my solutions, then I expect disagreement...if you want to publicly argue for your "philosophy" you should respect my right to publicly disagree too! Or is democracy damaging to "self-help"? :p
But FYI I wasn't making "generalizations" about anyone, I just think your philosophy is wrong and potentially harmful. I challenge you to show me where I showed any personal hostility to you or made any assumptions.
"Negative energy"..."peace with yourself"...can you explain what those terms actually mean?Why confront your own issues when it's so much easier to lash out of others as a means of redirecting your negative energy, right?
Hopefully you are at peace with yourself soon.
I mean to my mind being "at peace with yourself" would imply a person who has given up on finding truth for example...in reality the unvierse is made up of contradictory tendencies in permanent war, so to impose some "peace" on myself, to my mind, would be completely artificial, and people who try to find it, are only repressing. I think of religious people for example. It's basically a form of death of your character even if the body lives on.
But whatever that's just my opinion, and I can only go on my own understanding of the terms you use because you are completely vague about them.
