Stop. Thinking.

March 1, 2019

I recently took a break from MRP, and since I've been back I have noticed a LOT of overthinking.

Everywhere I turn, in every post - people making things more complicated than they need to be.

This guy, for example - is fucking talking about Quantum Mechanics.


No matter how much you wonder "Will my wife fuck me tonight??!!!??" it doesn't mean that she has Schroedinger's Pussy.

For fuck's sake.

Look -

I am not trying to gang up on the dude above.

In fact, I only notice posts like this because they remind me of any one of the fifty-bajillion posts I have made on here over-thinking everything from frame, to sex, to validation, to alphas, to betas, to hypergamy, to the manosphere, to....

Well, you get it.

Here's the thing:

Most of us on here are pretty similar.

We're smart.

e're motivated.

We're good at a lot of shit.

Many of us are very successful at work, or in the gym, or at leading people, or at fixing things.

When we experience something traumatic - our marriages falling apart, our sex life drying up, the realization that all isn't exactly as we thought - we tend to fall back on our strengths. To try to fix things using the skills that got us here.

And what is our strength? What's gotten us this far, what's behind the success we've enjoyed?


Always thinking!

Rationality, logic, trying to be objective, taking data, tracking numbers, setting goals, advancing towards milestones.

When you find MRP, there's a huge sense of relief....because it gives you something to do. It gives you something to master. There are even fucking levels for christ's sake.

"WHOA - I'm learning so much new shit! I'm seeing things differently! There are all these books to read, blogs to subscribe to, videos to watch! I'm getting feedback, I have new goals, I'M GOING TO TURN THIS FUCKING SHIP AROUND! I CAN DO ANYTHING!"

This is GREAT, don't get me wrong. Nothing wrong with goals, or books, or dread levels.

But here's the reality:

It isn't that complicated.

You know what MRP looks like, in practice? What all this boils down to?

At the gym, day in and day out.

Failing tests, day in and day out.

Initiating and getting rejected, day in and day out.

Trying to lead and having people laugh, day in and day out.
Trying as hard as you can to think for yourself, day in and day out.

Day in.

Day out.

And guess what?

Little to no thought required.

Now...after a while, you start to get stir-crazy.

You read some Rollo, you think about how "western society" is becoming "feminized."

You think, "I think I'm understanding frame in a new way."

You think, "I have a theory about how shit tests work."

You think, "The best way to understand how to talk to your wife is through quantum fucking mechanics."



None of this is work. None of this matters. None of this MEANS ANYTHING.

This is your brain, getting bored.

This is your brain, rationalizing failure.

This is your brain, procrastinating.

People have been fucking other people for as long as there are people. You don't need a theory, you don't need something to think about.

You need to look at who fucks who - that's everything you need to know, out in plain daylight.

The levels, the terminology, the posts, the books -

They only help if you get out there and fucking do the hard-ass, boring-as-fuck, no-thinking-required


Everything else is masturbation.

And look - masturbation is fun! Go ahead and jerk it a little if you've got the time.

But for fuck's sake -

No wife ever fucked her husband because he wrote a sick ass Reddit post.

So -

And, as always, this post is written as much to myself as to anyone else -






P.S. And yes, I wrote this post INSTEAD of writing some dumb-ass post about something else because I am a procrastinating fuck. Now I'm going to go lift weights before band practice. The end.

I recently watched Joe Rogan's podcast with Elon Musk.

It was amazing to watch. I could see the humanity in Elon's face. I could see his passion, his fear, his depression, his excitment.

It made me fall in love with the man (no homo)

He reminded me of myself. An engineer at heart who is running several businesses and has the drama associated with them. A man who wants to leave the world better than he found it, and who sincerely believes that most people are good.

Listening to him talk about himself, and how is brain never shuts off - it nearly brought me to tears. Maybe my E2 was high, maybe he resonated with me in a way no one else has. Maybe it made me believe that I am not alone in these feelings.

Some of us, cant stop thinking. We cant turn our brains off. We have hyperactive brains which are always thinking about XYZ, planning, weighing the options, risks, etc.

We have more ideas than time. We have more passion than execution power.

The problem is when you think to much about a specific thing to the point of obsession. Many of us do that with women...

The message should not be to stop thinking.

The message should be to think about things you can influence, control and most importantly execute.

It is the only way I have been able to find peace in what is the shit show of my life.

If you have not watched his interview, I would highly suggest it.

Well, yeah, you’ve got to think.

Just not about vaginas. They can take care of themselves.

Less vaginas, more mars exploration

[–]tspitsatgp4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Yeah, not sure you get it. There’s thinking things through and then there’s never having a moments peace because your fucking brain will not stop.

When I was in rehab in 2016 they put me on Seroquel as part of my detox.

Took it for two days before I refused to take it again.

Them forcing that on me was one of the pivotal reasons I was able to get clean while there.

It shut off my brain.

Made me someone else.

My brain was quite and I was never more scared.

Never again.

[–]BostonBrakeJobRoTY2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Instant classic! Dude's phone blowing up before he could even exhale was hilarious

[–]red-sfpplustells 1000 lb club pussies to fuck off0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

He pulled a Bill Clinton.

Never even made it to his lungs. Lol.

He was drunk AF thou.

[–]tspitsatgp0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

For me the inability to switch off was something I used to my advantage for many years. That is until I discovered my life is in fact a shit show at which point it became a total pain in the ass and is ultimately what prompted me to move to the next stage of my life.

[–]BobbyPeruMRP APPROVED6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Yeah... fucking autism is alive and well on here

The problem is guys want a formula, but there is no formula because people, places, and things change daily. The solution is found by self-honesty, work, and making changes. The stay plan needs to be the same as the go plan.

Good post

[–]SorcererKingMRP SAGE - MRP MODERATOR4 points5 points  (9 children) | Copy Link

Seems like we've been here before...

[–]RuleZeroDADMRP APPROVED3 points4 points  (7 children) | Copy Link

We try to push this about every six months...

[–]SorcererKingMRP SAGE - MRP MODERATOR4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Subreddits would make a great study on organizational memory. How many of us have been more than 4 years? There are precious few left.

[–]RuleZeroDADMRP APPROVED2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Frankly, I wish we weren't necessary at all.

I don't like it when the membership reaches a new "milestone." It just emphasizes the degree of unpreparedness the XY human experiences in the most basic of things: Finding someone to fuck.

I want to be Ben Affleck some day.

[–]SorcererKingMRP SAGE - MRP MODERATOR3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

We've had a few Affleck moments. The names escape me, but we've mentored a lot of dudes through here who became Warlords and moved on. What keeps me coming back.

[–]silversum1Grinding / Dreadful0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy Link

The irony in your first line “things are cyclical” made me chuckle. I think for this sub reddit it’s pronounced because of people joining and leaving over time.

[–]RuleZeroDADMRP APPROVED4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

I didn't want to sound cynical and say "weak men are predictable."

Also, you can't penalize guys who are putting in the work who come to conclusions and roadblocks at different times. Some need a kick in the ass, others a message to slow down and think. The second type are rare.

[–]BostonBrakeJobRoTY1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

others a message to slow down and think.

I got a much needed PM just last week urging the same. It seems pretty common to me. Then again, I could just be spotting yellow cars.

[–]RuleZeroDADMRP APPROVED0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Most of the Ferraris are still red.

[–]resolutions316!!CAUTION!! Runaway bus potentially ahead[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

no such thing as new ideas

[–]RPeedEverything is GAY / Dreadful '192 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I knew it.

[–]NorthernWarriorRP4 points5 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

We're smart.

e're motivated.

We're good at a lot of shit.

Anyone else find this contextually ironic?

[–]RuleZeroDADMRP APPROVED4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy Link


People tend to highlight their strengths, and downplay weaknesses.

In the 11 month period my wife refused to sleep with me, I made $300K.

I was a personal failure in the only context that mattered to me. All outside views would have seen my well-curated facade.

[–]RPeedEverything is GAY / Dreadful '191 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I lost $300k in about 11 months while reconnecting sexually with my wife.

No joke.

I also did not feel fully actualised.

I’ll redo my wardrobe soon, but I put it off till next quarter. Need to rebuild my savings first (we remodeled the basement in December)

[–]dll1422 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I like that I can make this much conversation about how I compare the chaos and unpredictability about quantum mechanics to how women think and react.

This is what I like about this place. It's a bunch of great guys talking and exchanging notes. I also like how nobody holds shit back on here. Love the brutal honesty. We all need to hear this kind of stuff.

Yes, I overthink shit alot. Something I have to work on.

[–]weakandsensitive5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

The prose in this post is good.

[–]Redpillbrigade173 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Schrodinger’s pussy . Hahahaha

[–]BostonBrakeJobRoTY1 point2 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

I've seen countless sticks of dynamite get handed out over the last couple years... seeing "stop thinking" engraved on one of em is a first.

I expect askMRP to be busier than usual over the next few days.

[–]SteelSharpensSteelMRP MODERATOR1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

"MRP says I should stop thinking but I just can't stop! What do I do?!?!"

Y'all need a vacation, there has been too much sperg and people freaking out recently. Get a grip, people!

[–]BostonBrakeJobRoTY5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

"Swallowed the pill yesterday. I quit thinking and stormed out of the house at 2:30 in the morning after wife wouldn't wake up to blow me. Came home 3 days later...still no bj?? What am I doing wrong?!"

[–]SorcererKingMRP SAGE - MRP MODERATOR2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

You're just getting used to the flow, Journeyman Moderator.

[–]SteelSharpensSteelMRP MODERATOR0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

It's a good thing I was already jaded, else I would have been in for a shock.

[–]centaursg1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Thinking is good, whats bad is over-analyzing. Once you have a decent idea of the world around you, you should stop over-analyzing even if you come across a different perspective. Let the practical experience guide you to your next goal. This is the most difficult part. How to network better ? you`ll get 100s of books etc how to persuade people,you`ll get 100s of books and articles.. But you dont have infinite time to keep reading these materials day in and day out. You have to get out and experience the shit. Stop anxiously waiting for another post by Rollo or someone on MRP or TRP.. Get out there and get shit done.

--Note to myself.

[–]framelessglasses1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I have watched your progress from the beginning. Every one of us shit on you now and then. You just wouldn't die. Good on you.

Did I over think that?

[–]Westernhagen1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

While I'm thinking about it, I think we need another thoughtful 27-paragraph think piece from /u/Red-Curious.

[–]symbologythere1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

MRP in a nutshell: your wife won’t fuck you because you’re a fat pussy. Stop being a fat pussy.

[–]PHOENIX_THE_JEAN1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

This is the funniest thing I've read in a while. LMAO

[–]aherrns0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

Ok... I must confess that I killed Chad's cat.

[–]BlindingTwilight 1 points [recovered]  (1 child) | Copy Link

Was that after Chad destroyed your wife’s pussy?

[–]aherrns0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

LOL! Did you a favor and you pay me like this...

[–]Webcat860 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy Link

Gym every day? Martin Berkhan goes 3-4 times a week and you’re not gonna convince me he’s beta

[–]resolutions316!!CAUTION!! Runaway bus potentially ahead[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy Link

I....have no idea what this is referring to. Not sure the gym is even mentioned in this post.

[–]Webcat860 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

It literally is. You said gym, day in and day out. I’m just not convinced that’s a good idea unless on a specific routine that would allow you to avoid overtraining, or the days between intense workouts are cardio or something light

That said, I was being fairly facetious. You made a good post and your fundamentals are spot on. I’m at the start and this is exactly the type of routine I’m trying to create.

[–]weakandsensitive1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Wait... So are saying you're not going to go out of your way to be a crab in a bucket?

[–]resolutions316!!CAUTION!! Runaway bus potentially ahead[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Sounds like you’re overthinking.

Let me ask you this:

Is OVERtraining really your problem right now?

[–]pandachief0050 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

BET!!! This is spot one!

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