In Topic: Do movies make you feel bad about your life sometimes?

Yesterday, 02:17 AM

comparing yourself to a movie character can be a shitfest, because even in a movie character's worst moments, they sound more coherent than a normal person at their best, because they're written with a consistent narrative in mind (if the movie is any good). it's even worse than facebook, because a movie isn't just a highlight of the peaks in a person's life, but a display of all the ranges of character that humans can perform. in other words, they're perfect, even at their worst. they will always have a leg up over you, unless you have the fortune of living a life where you not only 1) have many interesting, challenging things happen to you; but also 2) become a better person because of it.

if you want to be better, start living your life if you had to write a script for the world to see. take a lesson from benjamin franklin and dedicate an hour every day to writing a journal, where you: 1) plan; 2) analyze old plans and results; 3) practice virtues; and 4) discuss values and goals. it keeps you grounded and allows you to develop yourself as a character like no other method.

most people just don't have the presence of mind until they've at least journaled for quite some time. otherwise, you just enter each day only half-conscious, somewhat aware of what had happened yesterday, the week before, throughout your life, etc. Unless you have an enormous capacity to recall and juggle memories, then it just doesn't work. I know every history fact ever, and I still struggle with this, so writing a journal has helped me in ways that I never could have imagined.

If you want to live your life in a way so you could compare it to a story, then start writing about your life. A journal is basically a separate brain, because your old one is too overloaded with all sorts of irrational shit and dysfunctions for you to be consistently on top of your game. you probably think about awesome, movie-inspiring shit all the time, but if you aren't writing it down, then you're going to forget it and never see it again.

Men don't ever become less attracted to the ~16-25 year old range. It's just how it goes, biologically/chemically.

You can value an older woman for a variety of reasons, and obviously become attached emotionally to a lifelong mate, but obviously men with choices('cause money) will often still go for the young and hot.


Do you really think so? I'm 19, so 16+ is still legal for me in the state of Florida, but I know that I couldn't stand 95% of the chicks younger than 18. The high school mentality, lacking in maturity and independence, runs too deep. I'd lose all attraction after most chicks opened their mouthes.

I'm always going to find it predatory if an older guy is going after a young woman who isn't precocious. It looks bad on the standards of the older guy, who comes across as desperate. If you can't bed a woman that you'd appreciate in almost every aspect, then getting bedded at all is not worth your time.
