Thanks. :smile:

i'm a bastard. so, to make amends...

you should read Jasper's book on Nietzsche.

it's Nietzsche ..An Introduction to his philosophical activity... or something to that effect.

Why, they pick on the humble! [Re: Galvie_Flu]

Hey!

Don't let it get you down - when I was 19 it was pretty much the same deal for me too. The vast majority of people are assholes and that will never change, so don't focus your attention on how to change it 'cause you can't.

Rather - ask yourself how you can deal with it, how you can turn the situations that arise to your own advantage. If you have differences that they notice and persecute you for, look at how to exploit those differences to your advantage.

In my life, people have given me tons of shit and I stressed over it for many years. eventually I learned that they gave me shit for two reasons... firstly because most people are extremely intolerant of differences, and secondly because they really enjoyed the reactin they got from me when they took cheap snipes.

So... your first step is to disarm them: Do not react negatively to situations where people treat you poorly. If someone thinks it's fun or cool for them to take a cheap shot at your expense, make damned sure that they look stupid when nothing funny or interresting arises as a result of their insulence. Fuck'em! Don't give'em the satisfaction! Ever!

Next - believe in yourself. 10 years ago I was getting humiliated and kicked about by (seemingly) everyone 'cause I had a different approach to life. Now, when I go back to my home town, so many people tell me how much they admired me for having the confidence to be different & rebellious... and so many of the dick-heads who gave me shit now approach me with caution 'cause, frankly, they know that nowadays it won't be an effort for me to kick their asses. The tables are turned.

If you're keeping to yourself and being quiet, and some asshole makes a big scene, instead of just reacting emotionally, ask yourself "what makes this person so insecure that he/she needs to put negative attention onto me just to feel better?". Answer that question in the moment and you're instantly armed with an battery of "sensitive topics" to raise that'll have that person retreating rapidly.

Most importantly though, know that sometimes your entire life can feel like a bad trip, day after day after day, and it feels like it's never going to end, never going to change.
Study a few famous people's autobiographies and you'll see that strong people are forged in such fires. But it's up to you to decide WHAT YOU CAN CHANGE and what YOU WILL DO to imrpove your life RIGHT NOW.

I love the shroomz too, but you'v gotta believe me - you've got to be the captain of your ship and make the changes yourself.

Good luck!

Vaporbrains-
Hmm...from what I've read of Jasper... he's too much like Kierkegaard to really understand Nietzsche. I haven't read all two billion pages (or however many pages that guy wrote- ALOT)... and I don't plan to either. If you can't get it under 500 words AND you keep repeating the same shit over and over... it's just not pretty after awhile.

Whatever... it's just my two cents...

this book isn't that long. although he does integrate his philosophy of Existenz into his study of Nietzsche. i suggest it because it is a straightforward introduction to both Nietzsche's life and some of his thought.
