Young Blokes and Sheilas — Be Grateful


Over at Red Pill GIrl’s, commenter Alan Kardec states,

I’ve been reading Dennis Preager’s book “Happiness is a Serious Problem.” There a number of aspects of it that apply to Vixen, The Red Pill and to the current state of male female relations. Here’s one, chosen mostly because I just read it:

“… there is a ‘secret to happiness’– and it is gratitude. All happy people are grateful, and ungrateful people cannot be happy. We tend to think that it is being unhappy that leads people to complain, but it is truer to say that it is complaining that leads people to becoming unhappy. Become grateful and you will become a much happier person.

Because gratitude is the key to happiness, anything that undermines gratitude must undermine happiness. And nothing undermines gratitude as much as expectations. There is an inverse relationship between expectations and gratitude: The more expectations you have, the less gratitude you will have. If you get what you expect, you will not be grateful for getting it.

… Most of us are grateful for anything we have only after we are threatened with losing it–because then we no longer expect to have it.

Gratitude, the most important component of happiness, is largely dependent upon receiving what we do not expect to receive. That is why, for example, when we give children so much that they come to expect more and more, we actually deprive them of the ability to be happy– because they have less and less gratitude.”

That last paragraph is mostly unnecessary but it focuses the issue. Possibly if you have not learned gratitude (through any number of life lessons) you are also still a child.

After you’ve been around for awhile you should be grateful just to see daylight each morning … but that attitude seems to be dwindling.\

Being grateful for all that you have can be a very attractive quality for the opposite sex.  Firstly, a true attitude as such makes you happier, and people normally want to be around happier people.  Furthermore, it no doubt helps you see things better for what they are, which can be useful.

All of this is probably more important for the gal than the guy.  Men are on the lookout for women who are demanding, who are not satisfied.  Once they find them, they keep on moving.  For no man want to yoked to such a women; they may work to please, and never get respect or appreciation.  Perhaps in the olden days, men might have been more naive about such women; but these days all men have seen them in action and know what to look for.  Once again, women (and men) should be genuinely grateful for all that they have.

    I am not grateful.

    I earned all that I have.
    By Toil and Sweat and out Thinking those around me.
    by taking educated risks, by failing. By getting right back up again.

    I appreciate help but do not expect it nor ask for it.

    Being empathetic to others is human.
    Showing the way to others is civility.

    But grateful implies charity or dependency.
    To put yourself in the hands of others.

    Also why I am a Toaist. We have no god nor saviour. Only an idea of Tao or Path to self improvement.

    How many religions await a saviour to save the chosen who will be Grateful. So the masses can relinquish responsibility until someone will save them and then they will be Grateful.

    Instead think of Grace. To be honest. To lead by example. To fight when needed. To protect the weak.
    Grace is doing.
    Grateful is recieving.

    And we have way way too much receiving going on in the world today.

    @ horseman: “I earned all that I have”.

    And what had you to do with your ability to earn anything?? You had no control over whether you were born, where you were born, with what genetic makeup you were born. You could have been born a crippled, blind girl in China when they still threw such to the crocodiles. Every one of us has received a great deal, and we had absolutely no control over what we received. You could have received bad. Sounds like you received good. For that, I’d be grateful. Other than this, which is huge, I get your point, which is rather minor in the grand scheme of things.

    I’m thinking you have not really thought through the issue of gratitude. You could have been something so much different, and it seems that you aren’t. And you had no control over that. And after you’ve had your stroke, you won’t be so able to earn anymore everything you have, or want to get. You are not grateful you haven’t had a stroke yet??? Or cancer? Or a ruptured brain aneurysm or ruptured aeortic aneurysm? Or any other number of maladies that would suddenly make you dependent on others for your very survival? You are not even grateful for your self-sufficiency??. The tone of your comment suggest to me that you actually are grateful for that. Grateful is receiving??? Who did you receive the self-sufficiency that you are grateful for from???

    Like I said, I don’t think you have really given the subject of a greatful heart very much thought. I think you have one and don’t even recognize it.

    “Of course, we can count on Berkeley PD to stand by. ”

    Fuzzie, I may be wrong obviously, but the police officers themselves have to do what they’re instructed to do. A corrupt Police chief (which so many of them are 😥 ) and corrupt city officials (city manager, mayor, councilmen etc.) has WAY more to do with what I think we’re seeing than just the officers themselves. Again, I could be wrong… but their orders to not arrest the violent idiots and allow conservatives to be harmed are coming from higher up I’m almost positive.

    Whether they should be **obeying** those orders or not (or looking for another job) is an issue of morality and kind of different.

    Side note… we have an extremely corrupt city manager (makes more each year than Obama’s pay was!!) and a crappy black female mayor who is her puppet. Our Police Chief is sooo corrupt and horrible, that when there was a massive vote to see if the officers trusted him or not to support their best interests (and the interests of our people in the city), he actually got a 97% vote of NO CONFIDENCE from our officers. We have a big force, too, so 97% is a huge deal that so many of our men do not trust our chief and hate the things he tries to implement here.

    This sounds really out there (and so off topic) … but I think it’s going to come down to conservatives needing to move to other areas where they are guaranteed some safety from the violent leftist idiots. Seriously… I mean, the police that can no longer endure taking those orders to allow conservatives to be beaten and attacked are eventually hopefully be looking for other jobs. I’m 99% positive Patrick would NOT stay in policing if he was required to watch that and do nothing. We’re lucky our guys fight back hard against the city/county… and we have almost the same amount of conservatives vs. democrats, with democrats being slightly more and turning us blue in elections.

    But seriously… if the city officials and people in charge of the police force decide that you as a conservative are no longer valuable enough to protect against violence, you should probably move to a more conservative area and allow the leftists to eat themselves (which they will if given enough time).

    It may come to a civil war if the division continues.

    The police in Berkeley may as well do the right thing. Complying with blatantly illegal orders is indefensible.

    As for your local police chief, it would be best if it were handled locally.I almost got to serve on the jury that brought a mayor and the whole city council to trial in federal court.

    A lot of that may already be underway. The cost of living is so out of hand in the coastal counties of California that recruitment is already hard. When the Santana Row fire hit in 2002 in San Jose, they tried calling in all the off duty firemen. There was no help there. They were all living in the San Joaquin Valley two hours away.

    There is more. While I can see neglect or dereliction of duty, what I can’t abide is betrayal. For April 15th, the police promised to be on hand to keep order and asked the participants to divest themselves of defensive weapons. Then, when antifa showed up, they got in their cars. Here is Lauren to tell the story.

    Moldylocks

    I took a huge interest in this story, and researched her a lot. I took about 30 screenshots of her Twitter account (avatar a tie-died “peace” symbol, and her Twitter name included the Buddhism symbol), which was active from early 2013 to mid 2014, before she deleted all her tweets a couple of days ago.

    Her tweets evince that Emily Rose Marshall (born Emily Rose Nauert–the “Louise Rosealma” name is a fabrication) was by age 15 everything we hate about leftists. This environmentalist pothead was also vegetarian, an admirer of Hillary years ago, pro-abortion, feminist, pro “gay pride”, and she laughed when Satanists defiled Fred Phelps’s grave. She started calling herself “pansexual” around 16, and still lists herself as that on her Facebook page.

    She was voted Most Desired Girl by a cohort of her classmates, and always had a boyfriend, immediately replacing the ones she discarded. She tweeted about her “cutie booty”. In 2014, after everybody told her not to pierce her septum, she did it anyway, reveling in others’ horror at her new bullring. She also experimented with cornrow hair and lashed out with contempt at people who pleaded with her not to style her hair into “gross” dreadlocks. We know how that one turned out….

    Her parents split when she was around 13, and her father moved out of state. She had obvious daddy issues, and shared about a dream in which her estranged father, formerly a professional gamer, “came back and went straight to the computer” (dopamine-addicted rabbit dad, apparently). She chose to stop going by her birth surname and started going by her mother’s maiden name. Fathers day 2014 she tweeted “fuuuck fathers day!”

    She tweeted early and frequently about the usual Leftist issues and Rabbit worldview: “fuck white America… In middle school I was that hippy freak that never had washed hair lolololol… Don’t let your parents, school, religion, or government tell you what to believe… isn’t everything more fun when you don’t have permission?… I’m wearing my Satan shirt so that one Christian chick at the bus stop doesn’t offer me anti-porn pamphlets again [no irony here, move along! -ed]… empty your mind and let the universe fill you… Socialism is sexy…. Sick of seeing people use the Buddha as decoration…. Black guys are hot…. How to get a thigh gap: put a guy’s head between your legs… sharing porn links with my best bud… I want to go on an adventure with people who love inconsistency as much as I do… Man is the only species that has to pay to live on the planet [Holy rabbit tears, Batman! -ed]

    Remember: 100% of this filth she tweeted about DURING her pretty stage. The “mind virus” was already there, and it was allowed to flourish from Thousand Oaks, CA’s resource richness, CA’s public school system, and the absence of male authority in her life.
