In this short life, a man only has three responsibilities.
3) Continue the species
That is it. In fact, with that last one, I can actually reduce it to two responsibilities.
1) Continue the species
2) Survive till old age
If we look at survival as the goal, shelter and food become the means by which we accomplish that. We get those means through other means - money, job, car, TV, internet, etc.
All that other shit are just means by which we accomplish those goals.
Only reason we need a car is to get to work, the supermarket, etc in order to earn money to pay the rent or mortgage on time and buy the chicken to stuff in the oven.
The TV and internet is stuff we do for recreation. But recreation is itself a means to an end. By having fun with others, we bond with them. With males we bond with, we find the type of support necessary for our own survival - financial aid when times get rough, roommates to split the rent with, fellow hunters when stalking our prey, etc.
Making male friends is good for survival, but still only a means towards survival.
And the women we bond with, they allow us to accomplish our second goal - continue the species. But recreation is a means by which we get our women.
This post probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense to you. It barely makes sense to me.
I guess all I'm saying is don't lose sight of the bigger picture. Fancy clothes, mansions, fast cars, 500+ TV Channels, the ideal job. They're nice. But they're not essential.
Focus on taking care of the big two things in your life:
The rest of it is just how you get those two things done. There are ways that give you pleasure and ways that make it painful for you to want to do either of the big two.
Don't sweat it if you didn't go to college or if you aren't married to your high school crush. You may have lost the battle, but the war is far from over.
