  9. This kind of rhetoric is so incredibly toxic, I'm blown away when I see things like this especially coming from a "self-actualized" person. This guy is considering suicide, yet there is a complete lack of empathy, there is mockery which is even worse. I like Leo and I obtained great value from his videos, but honestly he has a toxic side. Some of his posts and also his attitude in some videos had a negative influence on me.

  14. Meta Relationships I see no other way to have healthy relationships than by going meta. By going meta I mean recognizing that a relationship is an organism by itself composed of two holons and that some rules need to exists to keep the relationship alive and healthy. Here are some basic rules that I thought about: Both partners needs to be psychologically healthy. Both partners needs to be able to sustain themselves independently. Both partners needs to have compatible personality types. Both partners needs to have similar values and a few similar interests. Both partners needs massive education on relationships, sexuality, masculine/feminine dynamics. If an issue arise, being educated about relationships dynamics can solve it. Individual preferences need to be seriously taken into consideration even if it goes against typical masculine/feminine dynamics. No manipulations, no pressure, no gaslighting, no screaming at each other, no fights, no egoic debates, or similar things. If any of this happens, the relationship needs to be broken. Space for mistakes and imperfections. I thought about this multiple times, and really this is unrealistic to expect a 100% perfect relationship where both partners will be happy all the time. That's life after all. In almost all cases, a bit of drama will happen, however, this drama has to be as small as possible. If something is not working, both partners needs to be aware and flexible enough to change. When an issue arise, both partners needs to be able to communicate openly and honestly. Both partners needs to be genuinely interested in the other person and try to see things from the other person perspective as much as possible. Both partners need to accept that the other person has relationships and sexual needs, and therefore have a responsibility to fulfill these needs. It doesn't mean that someone has to be the slave of the other person's needs, it needs to be healthily balanced in a way that fulfills both individuals. Both partners needs to let go when being too much meta. This is exhausting sometimes and this is a trap that prevents to be in the flow.
