I have realized that use of internet, addiction...frequent use and in especially being part of online communities - are very bad. Since I've been using it (that's a long time...since 13) really. I've not got a lot done, amazingly I've managed to do quite a bit - but imagine what, how much I could've done otherwise. Other things are, it changes how you interact socially, it replaces normal socialization with online 'virtual' fix.
This can't be good, the effects are complex down the line and it's impossible to know them all. I realize I'm posing on an online community - about this, the irony. It just shifts the way you think - that is not in a good way I believe.
Has anyone had similar thoughts as this? It makes me also think too much about not what's right in front of me.... so I don't enjoy life. I'm always ruminating.
I think it's a good idea to really get off the internet.
It's not a good thing, really. It makes us all alone, and changes how life's really supposed to be.
Misery and happiness are only states of mind.
That is if the world around us was portrayed accurately, I would not trade the truth pill for being an idiot minion toting the line on this charade the ruling class has erected in modern societies of this day.....
Time to Hide!
depends on how you use it. if it is your life then it is a killer. Look at people in public on their phones or tablets facejewing, on internet, texting etc while they ignore what goes on around them. When i am with mates or a woman my phone rarely comes out of my pocket. if it is important they can call me. I enjoy the company of real people doing things, not facejewing what I am doing now, real hobbies like biking not bike forums, real women in bed not porn then wanking.
Now I am home on a sunday evening so on internet for first time. I had my balls emptied for real, had a nice walk, went for a nice lunch with a lady, and went for a walk in a nursery. She facejewed that she is out for lunch with her man and a pic of the restaurant. i told her do not post a pic of me on your facejew. I dont want to be on there. And she reslises she has my full attention for the time, not split with some internet community.
Having only an online life and claiming that means you are too clever for society because you took some bs pill doesn't make you anything but a lonely friendless loser without a life or proper income who has to wank to empty his balls.that is the biggest bs of all, thinking people want to follow that example. Coloured pills, mgtow, alphas etc it is all the smoke and mirrors of wankers without a life.So get out there and do what pleaseshe you. You will meet like minded people, men and women instead of sociopaths with no life outside Internet. Internet is just a place to spend free time when u have nothing else to do.
The internet has far more positives than negatives IMO and you can learn more from it than watching TV for example.
It's not good to let it override your life though. The worst examples are the people who don't have a job and spend all day on inane sites like Facebook. That can't be healthy.
Forums are a different kettle of fish because they can feature topics that don't always appear in general conversation with friends. The main subjects I tend to talk about are women, sport and the Philippines. Obviously the first two are widely spoken about, but the Philippines? I don't know anyone locally who I could have a conversation with about the Phils.
Social interaction is important and it's good to have a "balanced diet", although I feel my quota is fulfilled between Monday & Friday nowadays, so at weekends I tend to lock myself away from the outside world and just chill and do my own thing which I'm quite happy to do.
I work on my retirement project for sizeable chunks of time at weekends. In between I listen to music, walk the dog, play the playstation, frequent a few forums and watch the odd TV programme. I used to go out every weekend socializing but ever since my best friend died last year I've lost the desire somewhat.
