4 Things To Help You Live A Meaningful Life
Everything is your Fault/ Self Awareness In order to gain self awareness you must first take into account how people act, understand why they act and behave that way and what it says about them. Most of us are living in fear, feeling insecure and we over compensate for that. We project onto others and place the blame outside of us to distract from ourselves. Once you can understand human behavior, you will be aware how you will be perceived. Having self awareness means being aware of how you are perceived. Avoid placing the blame of anything on external things. Think of everything as being your fault and see how you can help with the solutions, it will help avoid spreading blame. But to put it simply, the best thing you can do to live a better life is take accountability for everything. Blame yourself for everything wrong in your life. If you can do that, you can begin to have control. At least feel like you have control. It is important to remember that we only have a limited amount of resources in our brain. It is easy to blame a handful of elements and things for our position in life, but the energy, time, and resources it takes to place blame elsewhere is truly a waste. Ask yourself how is this my fault? You will always find an answer that begs self improvement. You will always find how you can do things better make better choices, don't blame someone else for failing you, blame yourself for trusting them.
Do Something You Hate Every Single Day
If there is something I truly hate doing, it's running. I hate jogging or running however you want to call it. I hate it with a passion. Yet I run about 3 miles every 2 days or so. But believe me when I tell you it is my least favorite thing to do in the world. All day all I can think about is how much I don't want to run later. I get anxiety when I'm walking towards my running spot. I genuinely get the sense of fear in my chest like a little kid that is scared is the closest thing I can compare it to. Once I'm running I have to forget everything and focus on my breathing. Once we want to quit, get to deep waters as I call it, that is when the real challenge begins. I compare running to going to war with yourself. It's a long battle of going back and forth with yourself . You want to quit when you get to those deep waters and you need to have the mental fortitude to stay present and focus on your breathing. That is one of the things running helped me master, staying in the present. You can have a million things you want to think about when you are running but you have to stay present and focus on not dying. Once the mental battle is over and the run is over, you have the greatest feeling of accomplishment and as corny as it sounds I've always thought the feeling after running is the hardest drug to come by. It cost hard work that can't be bought. And the greatest release of dopamine ever comes after your runs. The scary part about running so much is that your body gets used to it and is actually ready to run more and more each day so your mile run will soon be a 3 mile run and that will soon be a 5 mile run, assuming you are taking the proper steps to recover between runs of course.
The Batman Struck By The Spear Of Influence
I should preface this review by saying I am not the biggest fan of comic book hero movies. I've kept up with the major franchises, The Avengers and X-Men and Suicide Squad and even the new Spider Man. So when I heard there was a new Batman movie in production, I was naturally excited. As a lifelong Batman fan I will admit when I saw the first images and clips of this movie I wasn't too excited about it. I wasn't a fan of the red color scheme or casting Robert Pattinson as my favorite DC super hero. But as soon as the title screen rolled in, I was reminded why I love movies so much. This movie is the perfect super hero movie for the post pandemic world we live in today.
How weed helped me fix my character flaws
Having smoked marijuana or wax daily for the better part of 12 years now (I’m 29), I thought I’d experienced everything I had to with weed and wax by now. It kickstarted my appetite in the morning, paired well with coffee and got my creative juices flowing in the morning or late at night. Smoking before doing weight lifting allowed me to focus better. Going to the movies high made the film that much more immersive. Safe to say doing anything high, was the norm for me. I couldn’t imagine what doing anything not high was like. There came a point where I didn’t necessarily got bored of it, but just knew what to expect. As I was getting accustomed to doing everything high, I’d start to notice some of my friends were beginning to quit and take a break. I figured they probably got bored of it. But when I’d ask why they’re quitting, I would get a very common answer “anxiety”. A lot of people were getting anxiety when they were high.
Dating in 2022 AKA Post Pandemic
Dating in 2022 With things opening back up, the dating world is also coming back to full health. Having been on dating sites like Tinder and Bumble both before during and after the pandemic, I have experienced how the dating landscape changed. Certain personalities thrived in the dating world during the pandemic and certain other personalities thrive now post pandemic. Introverts are most likely to of loved what dating in the pandemic was, if they got out of their shell and actually tried dating. Now you see more extroverted personalities and also now more than ever you see tinder interests include "traveler, adventurous, into nature" and many more things that weren't normally seen during the pandemic.
3 Most Common Reasons Relationship Don't Work Out
Have you ever known someone or had a friend that was in a relationship that you knew just wasn’t going to work out? You could tell by the way your friend would tell you about their problems. But just how is it that we know when a relationship is meant to work out or not? What is it in us that could tell something so obvious but the two people involved are oblivious to it? Is it perspective perhaps? Most would say it is. But let me ask you this: Have you ever been in a relationship where everyone around you knew it wasn’t going to work but you were oblivious to it? It happens. There are some key red flags to look out for when in a relationship with someone. It’s difficult to know what to look out for because all relationships are unique but all relationships that don’t work out have some things in common.
