If you can't accept an opinion you rival has... how can you overcome it? You have to put yourself in the shoes of their life, with the programming they've had. Remember, the "messages" I refer to are the ones that are everywhere.
Every waking breath of life contains millions and billions of pieces of information that your body uses to understand the world. Each of us, growing in captivity, assumes the sights in front of us are the most relevent. Please, understand, this is a mistake.
Before you bore me with your sob story... as arrogant pricks have said to me, time and time again... also note that everyone has a sob story. Because every person's life and troubles centralize around them... you won't be able to reach an understanding with them until you've considered life in their shoes.
This is the piece of the puzzle. Trust is maintaining an open mind to a person until they tell you they aren't a good fit. People can't discourage you if your purpose truly is a noble one.
It doesn't who or what you say you are; in the grand scheme of life--it's impossible for spacetime to record the life of every creature. This is why you need to live a life that makes you proud. This means you need a goal that can't possibly be a bad idea.
If you have second thoughts, immediately, drop the idea. Don't sit and agonize over life's little tests! Always consider the extremes--how awful both sides may become--and find a blossoming pathway; coiling and jumping and zigzagging your way to whatever life you choose to lead.
Other people may offer their opinions... but if they are not helpful; then feel free to disregard as you see fit. If you know that you are attempting happiness in your life... then you understand that goodness is rolled along with it.
After age 18, you are responsible for yourself. It doesn't matter if you parents clipped your wings; now discover the world as a crippled bird or get your broken wing fixed. What do you want me say? I take Billy Joel's attitude on life.
No... I don't have time to work through each basket case hiding under the sink! Of course I care about you... but I need depressed people... the ones that hate fighting! They get what I'm doing!
The depressed want happiness very badly... that's why they're trying to have fun. Maybe you don't get everything that's fun? Maybe kindness is WWWAAAYYY more fun than cruelty! Maybe, if you think cruelty is good, there's something wrong with you?
What if I told you that jealousy is a curse and envy is a new adventure? When you hold admiration for someone (instead of stinky-pants jealousy) it prompts you to use that figure as a mentor and you study them, closely. This is why hate is an abominable burden upon society, as a whole, and must stopped.
You're supposed to practice your emotions equally. That's chemical balance of the brain. That's the big secret. Your emotions are your computer programs for your conscious... don't you see? The more programs working up to speed; the more you will understand. That's happiness. That's the secret to optimal performance.
It feels amazing... it feels like childhood (to bring out the old cliche)... but it's better than childhood. I'm an adult, now! NOW I CAN DO ANYTHING, IT SEEMS!
If I spotted you--there was a reason. I know you're closer to this than other people. For many of you... you're probably just about there. You need to trust. Enlightenment is understanding. It isn't hard to achieve. Neither is world peace.
