This could easily be a list of some peoples favorite things to do, so I’ll try to justify every point made.
1. Shopping at expensive stores:
Come on! This one is obvious. There’s a reason there are overpriced stores in the world and they are targeted at pretentious buyers who believe that everything that costs more is higher quality. Some things are, but they’re not in stores that sell candy for 1000% profit.
2. Unhealthy foods at “healthy” places:
The word Healthy doesn’t mean what you think it means if you’re one of these people. You’re only kidding yourself. I’ve seen a lot of people order fried foods and soda while they’re out trying to make themselves not look bad, but it only looks bad if you try to hide it.
3. Misusing “Fancy” Words:
There’s a lot of controversy around this issue because so many people do it and then try to justify themselves or use a very generalized definition. We all know grammar is evil, but you can’t just go around saying things you don’t understand. There’s an easier way. Get a dictionary or access to Google,
4. Dressing Up :
Clothes are stupid. I wear what’s clean. People who care about their appearance can never be happy. It’s impossible because you can’t please everyone. I don’t mean you shouldn’t take care of yourself. I’m saying name brands are ridiculously overpriced and they don’t make anyone look better.
5. Helping Out for Publicity:
Yes it’s charitable, but can you really say that someone who does things to feel good about themselves is a good person? Everyone wants to feel good about themselves, but that doesn’t justify bragging about good works. Everyone has good somewhere deep inside, but if you’re going to help someone, do it for the other person, and not for yourself. Easier said than done. This leads onto the next point.
6. Complimenting Yourself:
This isn’t an interview. You don’t need to convince other people that you’re likable. That time could be better used getting to know someone. Saying you’re a good person is like McDonalds telling you how good they taste. You can see right through them.
Unless you’re really that boring, and I mean boring to an extreme, you have no reason to conform. Your relationships will flourish if you just be who you were meant to be. That person will feel a lot better afterwards. Social pressure is something you can and should avoid if you can’t fight the anxiety. Hang around one person at a time if that’s the case.
8. Telling People Excessive Details :
People who aren’t your friends aren’t willing to listen to a stranger for nothing. You’re lucky if your friends want to hear you talk about every detail of your life. Some people don’t have friends. Friends appreciate it when you get straight to the point. Strangers will only accept you if you get straight to the point. So, skip what you can.
This is something that white people are known for. There’s intolerance everywhere and in everyone, but some people don’t know what’s logical to tolerate and what isn’t. If you can’t tolerate something that a person cannot change, then what’s your issue? There’s the benefit of the doubt for a reason. Have some humility and open-mindedness.
People lie to make themselves feel better and to avoid confrontation. People think their lies can benefit someone. People get stuck in a cycle and start to believe their own lies without realizing. If you try to be an honest person, you’ll have far less complexity in your life. It might take a while to recover if you’ve been compulsively lying for long.
