If you are here you are looking for something as you are not happy in where you are at. That is okay. If you are starting out and haven't finished reading the texts do that first. Save this and come back later when you have a relation to what I am talking about.

For those that have embarked on their journey and have seen a shift in their paradigm and perspective you know the darkness that awaits. Your ideal life and what you want to become are turning out to be something you don't want. The mirror you are looking at has a big crack in it and you are questioning the journey before you even finish the first chapter. You will find the deeper places of yourself when you start looking inward vs outward. You will question how people view and what their perspective of your journey to evolve into something better, new, and true. You will go into places of yourself that you never want to go to figure who you are and in the long run it is truly what you think of yourself and not what other thinks of yourself. There will always be that balance of you vs. them but in the end it is always you vs. you, and you will need to be prepared for it.

When you open your eyes to the selfishness of those around you will realize that they don't fucking matter in the end. You CANNOT control their reaction to your action and you have no obligation in ensuring their happiness. This is what drives the treat others how you want to be treated and they MIGHT treat you that way. You do everything for your wife and she doesn't respond; that is on you. You control your actions and that is it. There is more in the texts on Action over Words and you will always need to remember that.

The darkest place you will ever be able to go is within yourself and you will need to go there. You will find your drive and your motivation to become something you know is greater than where you are. The main goal is to be better than the previous day in where you can grow and that happens everyday. There will be stumbles in the dark as always but you will find that light regardless of how dim and move towards it. You know you want to be better and therefore you need to be comfortable in the darkness and embrace it. Many that come here run back towards comfort of the BP and fail to evolve and will just delay the inevitable. The question you have to ask are you willing to go through the darkness to go the light? That is a question only you can answer.

TLDR: It fucking sucks, keep doing it.

The true measure of a man is his performance in those dark hours, we know this over and over.

If you look past the 'get more sex' parts of rp, you would see that the alpha high value man thrives on overcoming adversity, facing his fears and his ability to act selflessly.

It's what 'separates the men from the boys'

That performance is the DNGAF. When you create your own weather and have self control you know you're unplugged you have the power to create your own future with or without her. True outcome independence. You lift. You own your shit. You kick ass at work. You have male friends. You're attractive and social. You're a great dad. Your future is bright. You know this even when she's bitching in the car about stupid shit and you wished she would shut the fuck up but instead you control your emotions and STFU.

No man is free who cannot command himself.

Take a man to the depths of his own hell and see if he rises above. That's the test.

The masculine grows through challenge.

Love this summary

Embrace the suck.

I just moved my family and started a new position in my organization. This was a high-stress period that required constant leadership and decision-making. I made mistakes left and right but in the end we got where we were going. I never blamed or made excuses. Despite the stress of the move and the loss of some important core drivers of RP lifestyle, I was able to pull it off.

I've wanted to move and wanted this new position for a long time. But I was stuck because I didn't know how to lead: I was paralyzed by the fear of making mistakes; and I was disgustingly beta-orbiting around a woman in my former office.

I broke free of all that and I'm optimistic for the first time in a long time. I bring this up because it's easy to dwell on mistakes and run through this eternal calibration of whether a particular action is bringing you closer to RP masculinity or not. But moving past that perspective is, ironically, exactly what you need to do. You don't need approval or validation from anyone, including RP community. We'll see where I go from here, but I'm very happy with the chain of events over the past few months.

Fuck.

All this time I thought it was a train coming the other way..

[–]The_LitzRed Beret0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Good to see you brother.

[–]suprathepeg0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Fucking good shit brother. Glad to see you’re still grinding.

Embrace your own inner darkness, hold it in your hand and let go of the nice. That’s the path to purpose.

Thanks for this I needed it.

[–]RoadRunner77770 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I needed this, too. Currently prepping to move on from my 22 year marriage, trying to find the right place and time to make that move. This decision has been a long time coming. But personal set backs with my finances and health (both a debilitating physical injury and medical condition -- both not life threatening but frustrating and scary) have made me put off what I want to do. Getting work done in the gym is tough because I am so limited right now what I can do and I'm frustrated. I've made positive changes to my financial situation, but getting anxious that it's not yet where it needs to be.

When you open your eyes to the selfishness of those around you will realize that they don't fucking matter in the end.

This. I'm trying to understand this. Probably my biggest problem is worrying too much about what others think. Reading WISNIFG has been helpful.

This was a good post to read to keep me focused on my goals in my darkest hours. Thank you.



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
