I’ve begun reading Red Pill literature some time ago, and am currently going through The Rational Male Vol. 3: Positive Masculinity. Though the book is mainly aimed at Red Pill fathers, there is very good wisdom in it that applies to all, such as the 5 emotions that you shouldn’t show a woman.
The emotions are: anger, rage, fear, despair, and despondency or depression. These were derived from a quote that Rollo used in Chapter 2. It states:
‘Women cannot bear to see a Man experiencing negative emotions such as extreme anger, rage, fear, despair, despondency or depression for extended periods of time.’
Of course, there is good reasoning for this. The reasoning is so simple that it essentially encompasses all of the emotions listed. We all know this by now, but it bears repeating: you are the rock, the captain of your ship. A strong leader very rarely will show these emotions. If these emotions are shown, it’s very, very brief, and very rarely seen again.
If the captain of the ship crumbles at the sight of one mishap, gets extremely angry, and demonstrates rage for a long period of time, his shipmates will begin to question his level-headedness and ability to focus on the task at hand (leading them).
If the captain cowers in fear, his shipmates will lose courage in their ability to weather the storm.
If the captain shows despair, despondency, or falls into depression, his shipmates will be left with no hope, and may end up abandoning ship.
If you ever end up feeling these emotions, ensure that they are VERY short-lived and that nobody actually sees you feel this way. It will hurt your image in their minds. They will begin to question the faith they put into you, and then you’ll be fighting an uphill battle to win their faith back.
- Be a rock in the storm. You must be the one that others can confidently lean on for support during times of struggle, knowing that you won’t budge and will provide support.
- Lead with conviction and confidence. You must have faith in what you’re doing and the choices you’re making, and follow through whole-heartedly.
- It’s better to feel these emotions in private than in public. We must maintain a rock-hard frame. People seeing us feel these negative emotions will put dents in the armor we so carefully constructed. This applies to not only women, but also the men in our social circles.
Thank you to Rollo Tomassi, whose books on The Red Pill have been absolutely invaluable and educational to not just me, but to all of those who look to unplug.
