"wait til you're older"
The trick is to learn humility and self-confidence. Humility is recognizing your weaknesses while self-confidence is recognizing your strengths. The opposite of these is pride and self-doubt, which unsurprisingly means denying your weaknesses and your strengths. If you know yourself, the judgments of others will fall on deaf ears and have no power to bring you down.
@Empshok, very nicely said
@Empshok, I've got two strong cases of humility and self-doubt
@Soulless at birth, that's probably not true. For you to be aware of your weaknesses, you also need to be aware of your strengths. Otherwise your perception is altered. Everybody, EVERYBODY, has strengths. Worthwhile strengths.
@Empshok, I disagree, you can be aware of your weaknesses without knowing your potential strengths; basically any anime for example
@Soulless at birth, uh...you're comparing life to anime? Please just consider that and consider re-evaluating your perspective to omit anime from any aspect of your perception of reality.
@Empshok, uh... I'm using a medium of storytelling to compare the relevancy of human emotion to show the possibility that the absence of an absolute are possible, contrary to what you had tried to pass off earlier. Unless you think that culture and societal development is not impacted/expressed through art forms.
@Soulless at birth, sure...I suppose you could also relate life to looney tunes based on that logic.
@Empshok, you could, and as the universe screams with coincidence, I am watching Looney Toons Back in Action with the wife on Netflix this very moment
@Empshok, The other trick is to remember that some people are assholes who will always tell you you’re wrong, based on their judgement of you, without addressing your point at all. And that’s because they can’t admit the possibility that their opinion isn’t the only way of seeing things.
It sucks because you are judged as a whole generation based on what's the new trend rather than who you really are. Some people mature faster than others and some are just idiots.
@pepperlapoof, From what I’ve dealt with, people who judge some one as a group instead of an individual, are usually shït people to be around anyways, so nothing lost distancing from them.
@pepperlapoof, just wanted to let you know in the 1950 there was a faud about how many friends can be put in a phone booth. Do what you want with the information.
