So I posted something very Alpha 2 like (and Alpha 1-ish) on my fb and people are calling me an asshole for it.

It was something that read "if my husband can call me 3 times during a 13 hour workday then your bf doesn't have any excuses not to" or some kind of unsettling Disney bullshit lol.

Shared it, said "yeah no thanks. If I'm gonna call someone 3 times a day they better be the ones signing my paychecks, and they better be signing big paychecks!" or something like that in response and people got butthurt.

And then one of my buddies out of nowhere accused me of skipping on $500 that I supposedly owe him in the comment thread. There's a story to this, but its very contrived.

I made a promise to myself waaay back 15 years ago when social media started blowing up that the second I got accused of anything on whatever platform I got accused on, I would delete the platform.

SO, as of 11pm tomorrow I'm going to be deleting my fb and only using LinkedIn as social media.

Why not now? There are still a couple people on fb that I want to keep in touch with so I'm gonna hit them up on DM, get their contact info, then buh bye fb.

I realize I've only been using fb for trolling and acquiring lulz than anything else and it became a tragic waste of time. I DID make an fb page to see if it could lead to me selling my e-books, but in the 10 or so months that I made it, not one copy was sold. Meh.

I didn't know until now how much outcome dependence triggers people who aren't Alpha 2. Damn.

But yeah, no more fb in 26 hours. Can't wait!

Welcome to the good life

That said... Don't take the bait when people set themselves up like that

Also don't salt your own game. Just live your life and it'll attract the people you want and repel those you don't like

Do this and you'll never have to assert your opinions, people will just know

That's how most of us are living so we can focus on what's more important during any given hour or day

Agreed.

Just deleted the account after saving a couple pics that I wanted. And deleted it without a second thought. I feel pretty damn proud haha.

I'm not much for external solutions, but I wouldn't be opposed to start a movement to completely eliminate social media. Seems like its created whole environments where high school doesn't end. I'm pretty much done with it until I have a real reason to use it.

Fb is still pretty active in my area, I only use it to know what event are going on, like parties, theatre plays or if there is any band playing around (i love live music).

I almost never engage in any conversation or make a post

Yeah, what I might do is make a new fb and only use it for bowling related stuff. Like where tournaments are and whatever.

I need to work on resisting the temptation to be a troll and acquiring lulz. While I don't do that here, I was doing that in spades on fb. I might get back on it but if I do I'm only gonna add certain people who are working towards something that is at least Alpha 2-ish as well as your reasons. We'll see.

Or you could invest that time on making more money, improving your fitness, and thus leveling up the women you women you attract... just a thought

I agree. That's what I spend my time on now unless I'm taking time off. But the temptation to troll is very strong. Its worse than porn for me tbh. At least with porn I watch, fap, then I'm done. But when I started seeking out lulz, it never ended.

Granted, it wasn't as bad as it used to be years ago when I was on 4chan, the misc, PUA communities (which are mostly keyboard jockeying trolls and incels), creating troll accounts on social media to try to dox people (oh yeah I was that bad), but the temptation is still there. And nowhere was it more tempting than social media where everyone wants to scream about social issues and share memes and stuff. Yuck.

The two are related. Explore that. Conquer it. Win Life

Respect yourself

You have more to offer the world. right now you're depleting yourself and giving away your best energy.

I have a chronic and terminal illness. With your energy I'd have my Empire by now, which is why I am hard on you and everyone here. We ALL can have more, and have it all.

BUT.

You must apply yourself fully with committment to the one true mission Mission.

Porn and Trolling is not it Brother.

Beat me to the top @joelsuf !

I'm starting to see that there actually IS a connection although it seems like on the surface they appear to be two different things. But both are nothing more than just very quick stimulations that don't accomplish anything. I know that both are as much or more addictive than drugs which is scary.

I don't think you are really hard on anyone here. I mean it isn't like you are hurling insults or anything. Even if you were, the intentions are good in any case.
