One of the brilliant things about the internet is that it’s the one place you can be genuine with what you think of people. There is no need to limit what you say to avoid hurting someone’s feelings because they are pixel people. They might not even be who they say they are.

It’s hard to have a hidden motive on the internet for anything. These people aren’t going to meet you, they aren’t your boss, they aren’t anyone important. So there’s nothing like getting a kick out of actually being honest with someone for once, and telling them who they are.

Most people hate criticism and hate the thought of self improvement. It’s the American way. Instead of working harder, Americans want to blame someone else for their short comings. It’s feminism. It’s the patriarchy. It’s religion. We’re a culture of professional victims. Everyone is entitled to marrying a 10 and living happily ever after. Everyone is entitled to making the most money.

 

The fact is, and this is evolution, from day 1, even if you work harder, you might not get it. You’re not entitled to it. Some of that is luck. A lot of it is in your genes. If you’re of average IQ, and most people are, good luck. Have fun. There are people wayy above you. If you’re of average attractiveness, good luck. Most people are of average IQ and attractiveness. Luckily, they have each other. But they don’t want each other. They want more. More. More money, more houses, more cars, hot chicks. Well, sorry. Not everyone gets that.

Be happy with what you have. Some of the most miserable people I know are some of the wealthiest people I know in terms of money and success.
