Nitrofurantoin In Us

Found this article at an interesting website called  violentacres.com Learning to Love Yourself is a Pointless Waste of Time http://www.chimpsanctuarynw.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/burrito-looking-in-mirror-day-one_web_mg_6812.jpg

People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. Nitrofurantoin in us
But the self is not something one finds, nitrofurantoin in us it is something one creates. ~Thomas Szasz, nitrofurantoin in us “Personal Conduct, nitrofurantoin in us” The Second Sin, nitrofurantoin in us 1973
Remember when the hippy dippy girl with the dreads was the only one dashing off to Indonesia to ‘find herself?’

Now everyone under 30 is off searching for themselves in some misguided attempt to discover inner peace and the results are nothing to write home about. Nitrofurantoin in us

Usually, nitrofurantoin in us when people ‘find themselves, nitrofurantoin in us’ the only thing they really discover is more things to hate.

The reason for this is simple: If you’re spending all your time focusing inward, nitrofurantoin in us it’s pretty impossible to make a positive impact anywhere else. Nitrofurantoin in us

Self fulfillment never comes after looking in the mirror and finally realizing you’re a raging narcissist.

“Love yourself!” the Self Esteem Police often howls to the masses, nitrofurantoin in us “You’ll never learn to love another until you love yourself!

Take care of yourself before you take care of others! You! You! You! It’s all about you!”

Even people who have had this theory beat into their head since birth are having trouble applying it positively to their life. Nitrofurantoin in us

The only thing continuous introspection has taught them is they’re not particularly lovable in the first place. Nitrofurantoin in us

And spending every waking moment of their life in a sad attempt to create the image of prosperity with ultimately meaningless status symbols ultimately makes them feel empty and alone.

So what should they do?

Lose weight?

Quit smoking?

Buy a bigger house or a nicer car?

Secure a spot on a reality TV show and pursue fame and fortune? What will finally make people happy?

Where oh where can they possibly find a little self respect?

Much like most things in life, nitrofurantoin in us the answer to this question is embarrassingly simple: If you want to self respect, nitrofurantoin in us live a life worth respecting. Nitrofurantoin in us

If you want people to care about you, nitrofurantoin in us you need to care about them. Nitrofurantoin in us

Self love will come only after you learn to love another. Nitrofurantoin in us

The Self Esteem Police have always had it totally backwards. Nitrofurantoin in us

A person should spend the majority of their time looking outwards, nitrofurantoin in us as opposed to obsessing over every little nuance of their innermost psyche.

So many people have told me they want their lives to ‘mean’ something. Nitrofurantoin in us

What always strikes me about these breathlessly whispered proclamations is how little they are actively doing to make an impact. Nitrofurantoin in us

It’s almost as if they believe the elusive ‘meaning’ they are searching for will randomly pop into their lives as they cross the street to buy a cup of coffee from Starbucks.

I’m tired of listening to people insist they want to do great things while simultaneously highlighting paragraphs out of poorly thought out self help books. Nitrofurantoin in us

I’d like to know what people are doing. Nitrofurantoin in us

This world is shit and there is no shortage of places to make an impact.

So, nitrofurantoin in us what are you doing?

Every single person on this planet should being volunteering for something. Nitrofurantoin in us

I don’t care if you’re an over privileged millionaire or legitimately in need yourself, nitrofurantoin in us good things come to those who give back. Nitrofurantoin in us

And this isn’t some hocus pocus karma theory, nitrofurantoin in us either. Nitrofurantoin in us

I know I’d personally rather help the single Mom who spends her weekends dolling out soup to the homeless rather than the one who spends all her time whining on her blog about all the bills she can’t pay. Nitrofurantoin in us People help those who are worth their good will. Nitrofurantoin in us

People worth good will are those who offer it before they need it themselves.

Of course, nitrofurantoin in us not every cause is for everyone which is where I think so many people go wrong when looking for volunteer work. Nitrofurantoin in us

When I was young, nitrofurantoin in us I started volunteering for an organization aimed at helping certain victimized individuals and only ended up feeling disgust and disdain for the people I was supposed to be helping. Nitrofurantoin in us

After becoming increasingly disenchanted with my work, nitrofurantoin in us I threw up my hands and insisted that volunteering wasn’t right for me.

Looking back, nitrofurantoin in us I can see now that volunteering my time wasn’t the negative. Nitrofurantoin in us

I had simply chosen an issue I couldn’t heartily get behind. Nitrofurantoin in us

Rather than give up and live 3 years of my life devoid of soul and the inner peace one gains when they sincerely feel like they’re making a difference, nitrofurantoin in us I should have merely sought out a new cause. Nitrofurantoin in us

Now I’m involved in multiple causes that I emotionally invested in and I can say with complete certainty that the small successes I make with my various groups are the happiest moments of my life. Nitrofurantoin in us

The whole world is not about me. Nitrofurantoin in us

It’s about what I can do while I’m here to make even the slightest impact.

If you don’t respect adults, nitrofurantoin in us help children. Nitrofurantoin in us If you’re not particularly fond of children, nitrofurantoin in us help animals. Nitrofurantoin in us

If Americans drive you nuts, nitrofurantoin in us help people in other countries. Nitrofurantoin in us The environment is going to shit. Nitrofurantoin in us

There are diseases that need curing. Nitrofurantoin in us

Sick, nitrofurantoin in us infirm, nitrofurantoin in us elderly people need someone to visit them. Nitrofurantoin in us

Trash needs picked up on the highway. Nitrofurantoin in us

Your neighbor could use some help fixing her fucking fence. Nitrofurantoin in us

There is plenty to do in this world. Nitrofurantoin in us

Rather than spend your time wondering how you can feel fulfilled, nitrofurantoin in us why not try doing something somewhat fulfilling?

Look outward and your innards will work themselves out.
