Relief

561 Have you ever watched Dr. Pimple Popper? It's satisfying, isn't it? If you haven't, go watch it. It's weird at first. Let's be honest; not everybody enjoys watching massive pimples, cysts, blackheads and whatnot getting popped. It's often messy, raw. Not something to delight yourself with while eating. Yet,…

Serve

560 I believe that the only reason why I'm here is to serve others. That's it. That's all. That's what I build my life on. Okay, let me dive in a bit. Self-serving, constant pleasure, and doing things you like is fun. It truly is; I truly love to do…

Unleash

559 I find it particularly easy to put oneself under the spell of notdoingnothingism. You know, the moments in life when you truly don't want, or can't, do anything. The days you spent on watching Netflix, staying in bed all day, disregarding everything around you. The months you spent being…

Blanket

558 I used to use generalizations so, so often. Okay, maybe that was a generalization within itself, but I still think it's mostly true. I did it so often. "All these people are dumb". "All your ideas are worthless". "Whatever I do is good". Oh, how easy it easy to…

Common Language

557 It's incredibly interesting how we use the phrase "seek common language" in various scenarios. It's a call to unite, call to collaborate. But, is it truly achievable? Can we find truly common language? At first, it seems like it's impossible. We speak so many different languages, each built and…

Sightseeing Tour

556 I wrote about reflection many, many times. It's a topic I just can't get enough of, I suppose. A great metaphor I recently crafted and that helped me visualize the concept even further is the one of going on a sightseeing tour. Reflecting on your life, your past, your…

All I Know

555 All I know is that I don't know anything. That's my default position in life. It's been that way for some time. So far, I've seen only benefits of that approach. In my social circle quite often I'm the guy that "solves problems". I mean, it's not like I…

Identity

554 I think that there are at least two pretty important aspects of understanding identity. Two ways of interpreting it; of building it. First, there's the projected identity. This is what other people think about us, who we are in their view. But it's also how we think about ourselves,…

Inequality

553 I've been thinking for ages about this one question: is inequality inevitable? Are we bound to the inequalities of this world? Will there always be inequality? Can we simply eradicate it, like a disease? The answer I've come to is no. Almost everyone you compare, there'll be inequalities among…

Defaults

552 I have so many defaults. We all have so many defaults. Gosh. Most of our actions are automatic, 95%, I'd say. There's no need to process through every single decision our brain has to make in a day; so we set up shortcuts, pre-made decision routes. In a sense,…
