So when you are about to do something and don’t want to think about it, just imagine the worst. It is not uncommon for us to believe that the only way to do something is to think it is a sure thing and be too stubborn to change it. It is a good way to feel confident about your future, and it can be a great motivator.
I’ve experienced this myself. I’ve been a member of the senate for years, and I’ve seen a lot of people make such a big deal about not doing something in an attempt to avoid having to think about it. A lot of people want to avoid thinking about the negatives, so they get so defensive that they can’t listen to opposing opinions.
A great motivator is to stand up for what you think is right and do it. I’ve never taken it very seriously. I think it is one of the biggest motivators when it comes to the fight against social media, so I think it’s a great motivator.
Why don’t you get over it? I don’t think you need to worry about that. Ive never had a real hard time against the social media world. Ive never had a real hard time with what I think is true and what I think is false.
I was recently in a debate with a really loud person who was taking the opposite position to me. When I tried to explain that I have a bias against social media, which I call “mark prater senate finance,” the loud person would not listen to me, and kept making up facts and saying that I was being a hypocrite for being against social media.
Not to mention the fact that when I try to explain that I have a bias against social media, I get a lot of “you don’t have to be a hypocrite, there are plenty of people who are using social media to be hypocrites”.
I’m not sure I’ve ever heard anyone use the term “social media” as a label for themselves, but that’s the only thing I had to do. In the video at the top of the post, I asked a question called “Are you a hypocrite/mark prater?” In response I was told by the person in the video that I had to admit to being a hypocrite for the first time ever, and then I got laughed off the forum.
I never said I was a hypocrite for anything. I just said that I was not a hypocrite. I was referring to the other people I know well, which would be most of what I do. I just used the wrong term to describe them.
That seems like a major admission, and I have to imagine that many of us have been guilty of that ourselves. I know a lot of people think that I am a hypocrite because I can’t be bothered to say that I’m not. But that is NOT true. What I am usually guilty of is using the word “hypocrite” in a derogatory way. As a result of that I became a pariah.
I can understand why some people think that I am someone who is ignorant. I can be sure that nobody who has read this has heard about this for years.
