    Narcissists are always on the hunt for something they are never going to find. They pretend to be someone else to ensnare the victim with deception, lies, pretending to feel one way, when they feel the complete opposite. A Narcissist should not be trusted and are often toxic with an excessive need for admiration, disregard for others feelings, an inability to handle any criticism and a sense of entitlement. I used to think that love could cure anything but it only fed my narc's enormous ego. It is important to be wise when dealing with a narcissist and I’m glad that cyberhackinggenius helped cloned my husband’s phone. I got access to all his dealings both on phone and social media without touching his phone. All I did was share his phone number with Cyberhackinggenius and I was able to read both his new and deleted messages from my phone through a remote link to a programmed App containing cloned cell information. My husband was a cheating Narcissist and I’m glad to find out all his secrets and infidelity with the help of cyberhackinggenius. I’m finally going through divorce with lots of evidence against him. I read all his deleted and recent chats on Whatsapp,Facebook and Instagram. Hacker Gavin also helped me in checking if my phone number is being hacked and he secured all my numbers from unauthorized access with a very powerful encryption software. I also explained to him how I got scammed online and he helped me in recovering all my lost funds to scammers online. Hacker Gavin also helped me with my Bitcoin investment and I now make 60% profit as ROI every 24 hours for my invested BTC. You can contact this great hacker “Gavin” through his email cyberhackinggenius@gmail. com and WhatsApp: +19256795146 . You can also call and text his Cellular number on +16265152216 and thank me later for this great information.....

    I have realised that if you are actually doing things for you and because you really want to grow on a personal level { I always desperately try to give life a meaning. I have come to realise that for me life has a meaning if we follow its natural flow, evolution. Evolution on a personal level seems to give life a meaning. I owe this to myself.} thats when you are the happiest and the healthiest mentally. Doing things just to impress others and taking up hobbies for example for other reasons and not because you genuinely want to do them FOR YOU is not healthy.

    This video (and others) was so uncanny... literally read my mind. I have been relating to my disciplines (especially Buddhist practice) as PRACTICES - meaning to do and not to do are all part of it. Right when you said “there’s a beautiful French word” I was like “no, he’s not gonna say it...” You did. I usually can’t spell it either after much practice. (Épanouissment?) I left college prematurely, middle of the term, to try another path. My friend from Quebec drew a farewell letter with a flower and this word next to it, and explained that it means “to bloom” or “fulfill one’s beauty”. Thank you for your videos. They’ve been keeping me sane these last two (arduous) weeks. Also, please ask your mother if she will adopt me. I’m from and live in Portland (kind of). Long message. Thanks for reading if you made it this far ✨ back to work now.

    Hmm. You’ve been saying for quite a while that you don’t have things figured out. But maybe you’re saying that to avoid your actual natural peace and “beingness”. I personally feel, that your searching for something that you already have, but put the excuse of not having it, to keep the search, to keep doing and doing. You can be at peace right now.. as long as you are connected to your interiorc whereas there lies your purposes. True peace can be acquired right now. But it is also acquired through connecting with your own human heart that possesses it’s unique talents, and visions to accomplish. Be at peace now, while you make true the desires and visions your heart moves you to do. And once all these desires are accomplished, you’ll be back at square one, happily laughing amongst your friends, or alone in your room, because you have realized you always had what you were looking for.

    Being furloughed during this period, I initially thought "i got money coming in ill invest in a lot of stuff and ill be seeing profit in no time" but i didnt have the discipline to focus on growing the audience, and i didnt have the discipline to control my financial situation as the bars reopened. then I lost my job. then i sank back into depression, im still there now. But, Titchener, Drew and D'Avella have been points of reference to get myself back up. I had all these videos on watch later for weeks, depression even stopped me from watching videos... but this is helping.

    Eudaimonia was likely the origin of epannouissement. It's an Aristotelean concept that says what is good for human beings is doing what we do well, i.e., living a human life well, flourishing, happiness, which is not a feeling, but a lifestyle. I encourage you to read the Nicomachean Ethics. It was my darling in college and is still so dear to me. Amartya Sen amd Martha Nussbaum have lovely contemporary expressions of these concepts that detail more fully what functions of humanity need to be expressed to live well.

    You know one thing I've noticed about your videos and content, It's all flash and it's really not that deep. You just use obscure words and adjectives to make your copy/message seem it's deep, use dramatic visuals, but if you really break down your content it's really not that deep and meaningful. Your video cinematography and production is amazing and top notch, but the content is meh. 'Content precedes design. Design in the absence of content its not design, it's merely decoration." -- Jeffrey Zeldman

    If you're interested in knowing the struggle present on the integration of a personality in a "sick society", I would highly recommend reading the psychological novel "Notes from the Underground" by the Russian writer Fyodor Dostoyevsky. It is very dark in a sense but it might give you some insight on the subject.

Not sure if it's the pressure to feel like you need to "loosen up" but we need influencers who are naturally authentic or else everything on the internet gets washed over with the same brush.
