I've been thinking about this ever since I created my SM accounts. I've always felt that there is something wrong with the idea that you have to put yourself out there so that other people can "rate" you. One might say: "Highcaterpillar, you are just insecure". Fair enough. But even if we use Social Media(particularly instagram) wisely, we nethertheless start pulling that lever, start seeking validation, our dopamine receptors get fucked in a way. We become less patient, more prone to be emotional, more reactive.
TRP is amoral. We must look at the results we get when we do something. But in this case what cost do we pay! I can DHV all I want, but is it not a delusion? Really? Do I need to resort to affectation? Yes, women SEE my high value online, I understand that it is a game in a way. But if one is so high value why would he want to show off in the first place? Doesn't the desire to be seen as high value mean that one is not actually that way?
Should we, as men, abstain from Social Needia, even though it may bring results, so we do not fall into the trap of becoming feminized? It'd be great to have a discussion on the topic from a point of view of self-improvement. Thank you all!
