Well its either my personal rule of "fuck it.", essentially I am who I am either I am liked or I am not but I will not pretend to be some one else and I will not act like some one else. Its definitely made life easier as not only does it free you from all the constraints of doing this or that to please others it also, I have found, gets people to respond to you much more positively because your genuine no matter what they know you and they know how you are and what you are their is no wondering or uncertainty. The other is "one and done", essentially if I have an issue with some one I will call it out, I will make certain they understand what they did that I found inappropriate or what have you and then its done. I don't hold a grudge, the purpose of anger is to get you to communicate to push you to address the things that are causing you discomfort or making you miserable, but after that is done it serves no purpose. Not holding onto grudges lets you resolve conflict much more readily and easily rather then holding on to it which just brings up the old conflict over and over again. Its just more efficient and makes life easier.1
Law of Fair Game: Always an opportunist; never a thief.
Dishonest Gain Reflexive: A thing which can be stolen, is a thing which can be stolen.
These three are borrowed and recontextualized from Luther's Small Catechism:
Law as a Mirror: Boundaries exist to remind you of what you stand to lose if you should ignore them.
Law as a Curb: Boundaries exist to restrict the harm you do to others.
Law as a Guide: They also exist so you can find your way back if you do get lost.
This next one is common sense:
Law of Fishy Intuition: If she seems off somehow, don't be overly ashamed to run away. It may be for good reason your gut told you to run.
Trusting Karma: If she returns your act of kindness by making enemies for you, especially with the law, cut her off completely. Even if she doesn't get a TRO on you, behave like one is in effect. Gaze upon her with disgust, but say nothing, and leave immediately if she enters the area. She will either repent, or a falling tree branch will be sent to punish her for being a cunt. Whatever you do, never give her more ammo.
If two women you admire don't trust each other and begin fighting, rarely ever give all props to one side. Concede the flaws in both, and show both the virtues in each other's intent. So that they may both be ashamed, and sue for peace. Let them know that you watching them fight is like a child watching his mother fight with his aunt, and not wishing to side with either.
If they insist on your credit card upfront, they're probably up to no good. If they promise anything free, but making it useful requires you to make credit card payments, run the other way.
Try to keep things simple and following my own self made rules rather than doing something that most people do.0
If you don't expect anything out of someone, you'll never be disappointed2
That I don't need anyone. I don't have any friends, to be honest, and I'm content with that. Whenever I made friends, the following would happen:
-They would inquire information about me and tell everyone about me and start gossiping
-They would pretend to be my friend but later betray me and start acting cold towards me
-I would always have to reach out to people to hang out, see how they are doing, etc. Nobody ever reached out to me at all, for anything. That's not friendship when you are the one contacting people and they never contact you.
For that reason, I ditched the whole friend thing, and I do things on my own and go out on my own.0
Christ sacrificed himself for my salvation. There's nothing more comforting than knowing you don't have to fear death1
Live and let live.
Stay out of my business and i'll stay out of yours.0
Don't care what most people think because most peoples opinions aren't worth a damn.1
Probably my own opinion is the one that matters, what I mean is that I try to ignore how other people feel about me, the most important judgement I want to hear is when I think about myself, whether I could do better or not, did I do right thing etc.0
Trust no one! Not even your own shadow because you will be abandoned at night!
Especially not the government!0
if you want something that you dont have work for it and eventually you will get it1
