There is a significant undermining of accountability these days as I see it with this whole kind of "participation medal" culture. It's like the source of obesity can't be a lack of discipline, it has to be a disease, it has to be the fault of the junk food industry, school cafeteria food, and apparently everyone who isn't obese just has a super-fast metabolism or something... can't make this about discipline and accountability --- oh my -- how offensive and controversial it is to make this about discipline and accountability. If a guy cheats he apparently just has too many temptations and it's the fault of the girls who hit on him -- can't make it about his lack of discipline and accountability. If people commit violent acts, it must be video games or something. There's this whole kind of culture that is undermining the emphasis on values and discipline and accountability. It's blaming the temptations. It's always about blaming something or someone else. There might be some merit to studying these temptations but ultimately it's about resisting temptations as I see it, and it doesn't help to put the fault on the temptations.
This is wise, did you learn this from a goat?
It's possible. I can only gain the ability to talk to animals when I'm really high. But I usually forget most of the conversation after. Yet it's possible that they taught me these things during that exchange.
I kinda love you. I don’t understand what’s happening
I have that effect on some women. Well, not all of them. They're usually kind of drunk. But you know, some.
I feelThe same way for tequila so 🤷♀️
That's a good analogy, I think. It's like you have lots of fun with me in the beginning and then the next day you regret it.
This is an interesting concept, I have used anorexia to help me rise up before🤔
I suspect some could do it out of shame too but remain in that childlike state for whatever reason.

Victimhood is Ew. I don’t see it being glorified 🤷♀️
Maybe that wasn't the right word to use , but it is encourage.
Well say a shitty event happens, some people continue on as if the event is still occurring going on and on about how bad life is, while others go 🤔 that sucked but it’s over now, what next.
Laziness for one. It's the easier way. Learning from bad experiences, getting up, oving on, not developing bitterness and prejudices because of them - all that takes emotional and intellectual effort.Another thing is being self-critical. This is one of the most crucial traits a human being can have, if you ask me, and in my experience the vast majority of people don't possess it even remotely enough. Without being properly self-critical, you will always blame everyone but yourself and always be the victim. You'll never improve yourself. This can be trained, but that gets us back to laziness.And then there's people who really just want the attention that comes with being the victim.
*not being self-critical
Does that mean that so far you thought I was a simpleton? 😭
That’s not always true. I’ve seen cases where people deliberately avoid help because they know it’ll take that role away from them that they enjoy for whatever reason.
Sorry I may have misinterpreted that wrongly. I thought you meant help in terms of therapy. But if you meant more attention and pandering to in general then yeah I agree (but it only lasts so long as people tire of it eventually once it’s seen for what it is).
I’ve moved on from that phase in my life 😇
