  1. The CEO took a million dollar pay-cut in order to double the starting salary of his employees from $35,000 - $70,000 per year. Many of the employees were able to start families of their own. Tbink about being in that kind of leadership and actually taking that risk for yourself and your company. He was told he and his company were probably going to go bankrupt. Think about that… @Leo Gura

  3. I really felt this last time I had sex. Tbh I’ve never enjoyed it. Even with girls I deeply cared about. It was a physical need or impulse that manifested as a lingered desire but any pleasure I did get out of it was a feeling of something I felt I lacked in myself but the dissatisfaction I experience after and even during sex has really gotten me to consider monastic life more seriously now. I still remember my first time getting head at like 14 I just had this feeling of like “is this all there is? This is really it?” That never went away even with partners that were “better”. Any other pleasure from there is rather just a feeling of status and what not. Which, to be fair, there is something healthy about that but taken to extremes can really lead people to some dark holes.
  5. What I am interested in: I would like to pay for a quality money management course. Nothing crazy. Just something that could teach basic good skills and strategies to saving, spending, and other solid foundational stuff when it comes to establishing a wise relationship with one’s personal personal finances. What I am not interested: I am NOT interested in some kind crypto cheat code when it comes to making money or some stock market investing strategy. Please refrain from such recommendations. Thank you.
  6. It really is nuts. My dads cousin who lives in Florida just died and his now widow of a wife and daughter are still not vaccinated nor convinced while they live in a state that is getting ravaged by COVID. It’s interesting because I come from Cuban descent (at least for half my family tree) so my Cuban side of the family (outside of my immediate family that is - my Cuban father doesn’t buy any of this bullshit) is just going to hang on to their right wing ideology even as it leads them to falling off a cliff. They just can’t stomach what comes from the left because of the fear of the left and all their history with communism and socialism which they escaped from. Which I imagine you might relate to in some way @Leo Gura in terms of potential family members of yours since you came from Russia. You can even see a similar dynamic going on with the Jews in that video.
  7. You made more money in that internet marketing business than you have through Actualized???? Are you still earning money from it today???
  8. Judgements aren’t bad. Bad judgments are bad. “Bad” in the sense of “unskillful judgments”. Trust your capacity to make skillful judgments grounded in good sense-making and honesty. Oprah does in fact greedily sell bullshit spirituality to people, despite the fact that she’s also conquered a rather harrowing upbringing. There is some basic intelligence in the self contraction when faced with bullshit. But yeah, sounds like some basic therapy would help when it comes to your mom and uncovering the complex underbelly of inner conflicts when it comes to the relationship with your mom that you’re not aware of.
  9. That’s how you know people have amnesia from their time in middle and school and high school 😂
  10. I think working with a good psychoanalyst would be really great for him. Kudos to you for sticking with him. Having the patience to really allow him to work through this stuff is a mark of real maturity. As far as I can tell, it’s a quality that’s rather rare these days. So I just want to encourage that. As far as recommendations though, psychoanalysis would by far be my top recommendation. You could go to a good trauma therapist like Somatic Experiencing but this seems to more psychic conflict than some ongoing contraction in the body that is manifesting as neurotic symptoms.
  11. The mind man… the mind… Condolences to those kids.
  12. You need high quality therapy. I highly recommend psychoanalysis.
  13. I’ll concede to that point. Fair enouh.
  14. This is a load of just straight up gibberish.
