How do you cope with it all in the end?
Action is better than inaction. Simple as that.
You need to learn how to water down red pills. In short, do something you think is worthwhile to take your mind off it twmporarily. One anon said to use Anime. It worked for me.
You accept what you can't change and work on what you can change. You can't fix the world but you can fix yourself and make subtle suggestions to those near you. If you get overwhelmed walk away and do something wholesome or enjoyable. Music is a good way to affect your mood, choose something uplifting.
Firstly my coping for most things has gotten exceedingly short over the years. Something can emotionally hit me, but then I'm able to get through with it fairly easy. Almost a numb response except for the short emotional burst. When I think about it, it's all about attitude. First, when dealing with grief, I look to the hints at light. That there isn't much too bad, or things will pan out in the end. That's the reactionary response, second is the composition of my reality. I go by Schopenhauer's Will to Life, Nietzsche's Will to Power, and Hitler's Law of Nature; basically all summing up the role of struggle in human life. I don't see struggle as a disadvantage, but as essential to a character. Complacency is a worst mistress than struggle; she'll kill you when you're not looking. Going back to Nietzsche again, do I look to the basic concept of the "Ubermensch"/overman, the higher elevation of man through wrenching improvement. And, that's quite great. I've told myself that a man needs only two only two things: his ideals and his family. As long as I have those, my spirit will not falter. Going deeper, I am quite content after looking to the cyclical nature of time. The trends show an arise of discontent and national feelings. Even a major collapse or dent in society, which I take assurance in.
Hobbies are great too. I take part in several of them.
Well, what I do might not exactly be "mentally healthy" I've been delving deeper and deeper into defensive weaponry, both homemade and manufactured. I've taken self-defense classes, bought survival and military combat manuals, learned how to prepare bug-out bags and practical civilian combat kits, basic traps both lethal and non-lethal, basic first aid, urban survival tricks like being "a gray man" as well as taking time to thoroughly clean and inspect the firearms I privately own. I dont intend to use any of these skills but it keeps me sane knowing that if shit does hit the fan id be able to fair better than most.
To some extent all red pills can be thought of as black pills, because most red pills does not tell you anything you could act upon (ie, something to fix), and the red pill also makes it look like the amount of bad things in the world is increasing.
Personally, knowing the top most conspiracies makes all the red/black pilling contribute to a coherent picture of what is going on, see the narratives, and know how to verbally combat and defend against them. That way, knowing red pills is for the purpose of being ready for intelligent discussions, instead of watching the world burn.
Though, on the whole, it is best to not think of conspiracies in terms of pills in general. Diversify your information consumption, don't keep on being a dopamine addict.
Just dont let it get to you.
The world may be doomed but we are the cooks, all we need to do is cut the rotten edges and save what little we can.
We may not be able to change the world in the short run, but we can surely change it in a meaningful way in the long run with what little we can do.
Don;t lose hope anon, raise your head and fight!
I offer this piece of wisdom from Marcus Aurelius
Rome really was the greatest civilization.
Until the later years, when the degeneracy set in
I evade the blackpill by rooting for the end of the world.
Marcus Aurelius was one of the best rulers of Rome. Maybe even better than Cäsar.
One of my favorite quotes.>>136
His only mistake was giving it all to his son.
>>137>His only mistake was giving it all to his son.
It's actually one of the reasons why I think the concept of dynastic rule is bullshit.
That quote is wrong. Marcus Aurelius was not an atheist, and the actual quote was:
"Now departure from the world of men is nothing to fear, if gods exist: because they would not involve you in any harm. If they do not exist, or if they have no care for humankind, then what is life to me in a world devoid of gods, or devoid of providence? But they do exist, and they do care for humankind: and they have put it absolutely in man's power to avoid falling into the true kinds of harm." http://undeniably-atheist.blogspot.com/2011/10/fabricated-marcus-aurelius-quote.html
wake up early, stretch, exercise, read books, practice maths.
This, and checking your pair of 15's. If one is not regularly exercising, eating a suitable and effective diet, engaging their mind, and testing their resolve, their cognitive processes cannot be said to be fully functional. The question of "dealing" can be addressed after the fact. TL:DR Sort yourself out OP
Never give up hope
Or just be autistic
Or do both like me, it works.
yeah definitely actually fuck it I'm declaring this a /fitlit/ thread now.
OP listen up look up your BMR and shoot for 100-200 calories under that and EVERYDAY no "cheatdays" avoid sugar and get as much protein and fiber into your diet as you can. Stretch everyday, mon wed fri work out your arms and torso, teus thur work your legs and core, cardio on the weekends jogging is great.
the brainage series of games is useful but however you do it try to do a little bit of math every single day, and read a full chapter of any book everyday. drawing and writing is also good for you even if you're initially shit at it.
if you want to resist blackpills you must take the ironpill you must become Übermensch
A bullet to the head cures all
What did he mean by this?
don't go ghost, anon don't be an hero!
it wasn't the degeneracy it's because they let women have jobs and get involved in politics, being women and therefor operating on emotion and not logic they then pushed for rome to accept degeneracy and non-romans
remember that 3d porn is controlled by the jew, stick to jap porn and ponies
I dunno. I'm feeling pretty good even with all that's happened recently.
Pony, I guess? I can't get enough pony. Even between here, /mlp/, and /pone/ things aren't always fast enough for me sometimes. I just want to talk about ponies and shit, and think nice thoughts. And when I don't? It's /pol/shit. Niggers and alt-left and kikes and shit. Riots and escalating violence. Lugenpresse, fake news, and propaganda. I guess pony is the only thing that keeps me going, really. I can think happy thoughts of cute little creatures, and true love, and friendship. Which is good, because I swear to god I'll kill people if they keep carrying this bullshit to the extreme and SHTF. Lucky, I live pretty far away from all that, and I've got ponies, lots of happy green, and cute pictures.
Helps keep me in check. Happy feelings make for a happier, more content you. True fact. I guess I self-medicate with ponies. I drink a bit, too. Not too much though. Been there done that. It isn't fun. I also like to think. Just use the ol' noggin. Makes it fun to debate and enjoyable to type out long posts like this one. It gives me a chance to put pen to paper, so to speak, and it helps to refine concepts and ideas. That's my sad, simple little coping mechanism.
It's cool that you've got good health and a job and good grades and shit, but you gotta give yourself a long-term goal to achieve, or at least something to look forward to everyday. That's the key to happiness. It's no secret.
you cope with it by making things that make you feel good, and people around you.
ponies are cute, so be happy watching good stuff.
have fun with your fams or friends, go hang out with them or just walking around with them.
help in your neigbourhood commune, or just do comune service.
there's choices and stuff to help making your surroundings better. you won't change the world, but at least you'll give the first steps to a better future and a better life
