If you aren’t self-sufficient, you can’t call yourself a man.
Although we’re social creatures, we must face the world by ourselves. It’s important to cooperate with others to achieve your goals, but your vision must first be found within.
From the day you emerge, kicking and screaming, out of the primordial waters, you must recognize there’s only one person who’ll ever know the ins and outs of your inner universe…
That person is YOU.
No One Belongs To You, And You Don’t
Belong To Anyone Else
Why’s there so much possessiveness in the world?
This is MY girlfriend *cue mate-guarding behavior*.
She’s a free person who can do as she pleases. Don’t be mad she chose someone else to dick her down properly because you ain’t fuckin her right.
Charge it to the game.
This is why I get such a kick out of the “lonely old man” myth. Everyone lives a life of “born alone die alone” regardless if they have a wife/gf/fwb or not.
Intimacy Is Fleeting
Enjoy it while the moment lasts. You shouldn’t need anyone to make you feel fulfilled as a person.
Do you really love your S.O. or do you love the package that she represents?
Does her image fulfill a perceived deficit of yours?
You shouldn’t expect any of that nonsense to be the missing piece to your puzzle. Everything you need is already within. Do whatever makes YOU happy, not what people tell you to do.
Live For Your Own Fulfillment
The only way you’ll ever attain your full potential is by realizing how alone you actually are. While this may sound depressing, it’s simply a matter of perspective.
Find strength in your solitude.
Social interactions are moments of interconnectedness. Keep in mind they don’t last forever.
You have a gift deep inside of you. There’s an entire universe waiting to be expressed. You simply ARE. That feeling of oneness is eternal. You wouldn’t have your strengths without your weaknesses.
Know that at the end of your life, you’ll be the only person headed towards that shining light.
