    I love it.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    Gosh, each American is an innocent abroad, discovering the corruption of the Old World, as if for the first time.

    We have only the best of intentions and only the best of intentions for you.

    We want you to become Americans too.

    What greater gift could we offer you but to cast you in our own image.

    But you reject us because you are pathological haters.

    (1) I've advocated no particular religious viewpoint.

    (2) Have you ever considered that other people might think you are creepy, and boring?

    (1) I'm not arguing anything. Learn to read. I offered some of my views, that's it. Take it or leave it, buddy!

    (2) Yes, I expected disagreement. Did you ever consider the possibility that I don't care? ZING! That's what's going on. I shared my thoughts in the hopes some would benefit from them. If you do not, then so be it. If you don't like my thoughts, so be it. I can't tell you how much sleep I am going to lose over it: Milliseconds, I assure you. :zzz:

    (3) I do respect your right to disagree. Where did I ever say I disrespected your right to disagree with me? I have not, nor will I, because my beliefs work for me, and I am not affected or concerned with your opinion. But that doesn't mean I "disrespect your right to disagree with me."

    (4) Your assumptions are not good, you might wish to stop guessing. Your assumptions also make you appear rude.

    Quote Originally Posted by tcda View Post

    Wow, Ok. That's not how you came off to me. Ooops. Whose mistake is that? Yours for bad delivery, or mine for bad hearing? It's all a matter of opinion.
    I think your philospohy is wrong and potentially harmful. But if it works for you, great!

    You and I think very differently. How about that? I had no idea there were people on this Earth who thought differently than me. JeeWhiz, I am writing this down in a book so I don't forget it.

    Your challenge is without merit as we are having a difference of opinion.

    Quote Originally Posted by tcda View Post

    What matters is what those terms mean to you. And if you have no regard for those concepts, that's great, whatever works for you.

    Quote Originally Posted by tcda View Post

I think of religious people for example. It's basically a form of death of your character even if the body lives on.
    Interesting. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    Quote Originally Posted by tcda View Post

    I respect your right to have your opinion. If my post was vague to you, so be it. Thank you for reading it. If it was not of utility to you then that's OK. I am honestly very busy right now, and not interested in attempting to splice the inner workings of your mind to prove or disprove anything I wrote to you in quote/response format for the rest of the weekend.

    If you would like to share your own outlook on life, please start a thread on it. I'd be interested to read it seeing as our outlooks are so different. It's much easier to throw stones at other people's work than to create something of your own. Let's see what you've got, or not, either option is fine by me.

    Done with you, see ya' around, fella!'

    Oh, so that's what a positive outlook is called. Boosterism. Well if you'll excuse me, I have some Boostering to do, snake oil or no (after all, who cares what's in it, so long as it works?).

    What did I say to deserve that? Have you even read Halla's post? Look for the section about shoes, it might help you.

    That post I made was admittedly a bit of a gut reaction, I wasn't thinking straight. I didn't even think it posted, because I quit while it was loading. Anyway, I think it might just be a temporary quick fix. The problem with self help, is that there are so many ways it can go wrong. One idea might work for someone, but it might damage someone else. It would be safer to help people on an individual level. I guess I'm just being skeptical.

    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!

    Ms. Qre:us distills my wall of text into a few well thought out lines. Why is she good at this? I don't know but I love it, and am a bit jealous.

    Hey! Thank you, Nunki. It wasn't caffeine, it was just a placebo, and we didn't inject your arm we just tapped it with the edge of a plastic paperclip. Your brain did all the work. Thank you for your feedback!

    I figure if Halla really believed in a philosophy that every man should be purely self-interested and pitted against the world, he'd probably be keeping these optimistic and inspiring thoughts to himself and not attempting to encourage other people with them. "You vs. the world" is simply about seizing the day, accomplishing what you want to accomplish, and so on, not about "winner-take-all," "fuck-you-got-mine" competition.
    You've got it, you caught my drift, thank you for reading my post and for taking the time to clarify that passage. Take care, Bro. -Halla

    No one interprets things exactly the same way. I offered an age old adage as a means to point out the benefit to consider the perspective of others before executing actions. Who says your perspective is mutually agreed upon by the rest of the world? That's your opinion. It baffles me how such simple, benevolent, and age old advice can be miscontrued. But it's your brain, and I don't need to understand it. Cheers to you, seriously. Think whatever works for you. There are alot of other things in this world more dangerous to optimism.

    (1) My post isn't self help.
    (2) In your sentence above, replace "self help" with "science" and see if you are able to dtermine how your opinion misses the mark. Seriously.

    If you are asking me, I think you are being skeptical, but that's OK, I don't hold that against you. I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt, it would be nice if you returned the favor. Cheers, dude! -Halla
