Our society has become really good at using softeners, and at making others feel like they have to use them too, really guilt tripping the rest of us to use them so that we don’t make other people feel bad.
-we’re teaching and spreading victimism—that another person can make us feel something
-that we should live in a world where nothing and no one makes us feel uncomfortable or threatened. That’s just not realistic and that philosophy makes us weak and unprepared for life. This is one of the reasons for the failure to launch and why many adults are not behaving as adults.
-false idea that we should not feel pain, or conditioning to avoid pain at all costs.
Softeners are tranquilizers; they are anesthetics that keep us from improving our lives. Pain can equal progress. In fact pain is the greatest motivator toward progress. But if we are consistently numbing ourselves we won’t change things we NEED to Change
Are you fat? Obese? This is not body shaming! It’s body love. This whole life is about maximizing our potential and living in extraordinary life. Our body is our vehicle for life and when we don’t take care of it we are limiting our own lives.
The main reason that any of us gets fat is because we don’t control what’s going in our mouths.
