Anyone else find this?

back in the day life was so simple men had a sense of purpose

- grow up
- acquire education (or not)
- get a job
- raise a family
- acquire a home (White picket fence)

or

- go to war

but these days....


BRB over saturated job market for many uni degrees
brb no clear sense of purpose
brb feminism
brb 80/20 rule
brb why am i even here?
brb why raise a family when sloots gon sloot and divorce
brb talk to guys and they seem to be just drifting through life with no real direction/purpose

just feel like young men (like me) are running around like chickens with their heads cut off. No purpose.

what's the 80/20 rule???

I don't think life was ever that easy for most people. I feel like there are a lot of whiny bitches who just can't deal today...

...modes and scales are still useless.

The expectations of every generation is gradually increasing while the pay off for hard work seems to become less and less due to saturation of more and more people having higher education

If you choose to bust your ass all day everyday then you have a chance of getting some recognition and a pat on the back but will most likely end up with little friends simply because you don't have time to socialize

If you feel as though the ends are not justified by the means then you are branded as a loser

You are either going to be a (possibly) successful guy with 0 social life due to the work required to make something of yourself or failure at life. Couple that with the opposite sex being completely in control as to whether or not you get laid, you end up with some pretty miserable younger guys

Just my opinion

I've been watching Bob Ross ( ) and he says don't wait and plan out every little thing before you paint. Just put the paint on the canvas and follow your heart. So true :')

80/20 rule?


just for lol's

The 80-20 rule actually comes from the Pareto Principle, it was developed because Pareto saw how 80 percent of the land in Italy at the time was ruled by 20 percent of the population. Later on the rule developed to the point it could be applied to anything from economics to dating.

kinda broscience like 80% of women attracted to 20% of males.

disregard this idea, and focus on the rest of what i wrote pls

I totally agree. I can't seem to give a shit about society's values, and can't find my own purpose either.

I guess we just have a lot more time to think about stuff instead of following simple rules and doing whathever they tell us is the right thing, so our minds are less alienated and a lot more confused.

Men have always had problems, but only recently has it become socially acceptable to talk about them.

Would you be happier with less choice? Would you prefer major decisions being made for you?

the fact that you missed the point i was making.

or the fact that you think it's okay that we, young men, have nothing to strive for and should blindly shut our mouths, follow the herd, and think "well, this is what my father did, so im happy"

well i mean feminism typically strives to dismantle the gender roles that keep men locked into such a restrictive gender role

the whole 'things were easier back then' argument is bullshit because you're looking back on it from an outside perspective

Do you know why because so many young people feel left out because there are 7 billion phaggots in this planet who are designed to keep you down. I hate Human beings what parasites we all are, no one wants to see you succeed in life the world tell you ain't **** and listen to your stupid schools telling you your mediocre when in reality your the ****ing best. You listen to you stupid parents to tell you be a good bitch and follow society like every single worthless insect in this planet i.e Get born- go to school- get job/UNI- relationship-married-kids-retire then die. The problem is with us we don't thoroughly think through what we want to do in life and instead go through the motions like every parasite in this planet. We suck seriously the human race aint ***

This is a common theme among twentysomething males these days. A few things to ponder:

Unhappiness is simply perception of the difference between our expectations and reality. The more unrealistic our expectations, the greater our unhappiness. It is completely within our control and is barely affected by others or our circumstances. Once we fully accept "what is" and truly live in the moment we can find joy in nearly any circumstance. Zen

Idle hands are the devil's playground. Do something, anything, but get off the couch, put down the game boy and go out into the light. Backpack Europe, trek the Appalachian trail, surf the west coast, bike across the country, set out on an epic adventure and discover yourself along the way. These things are only really possible before you settle down somewhere so go now. It will be challenging, freezing, tiring, hunger inducing, physically taxing, but you will learn to trust yourself, depend on yourself, and your confidence will grow.

Confidence attracts.

Our perception is everything.
"Your sound is in your hands as much as anything. It's the way you pick, and the way you hold the guitar, more than it is the amp or the guitar you use." -- Stevie Ray Vaughan

"Anybody can play. The note is only 20 percent. The attitude of the motherfucker who plays it is 80 percent." -- Miles Davis

there are higher suicide rates among men than women in pretty much every part of the world. this idea of the 'boys just need to man up and move out' is a part of that.

lol at 'grow up'. as if that means anything.
lol at acquire education when you then go on to mention oversaturated job market with endless uni degrees
lol at get a job like seriously, when in society have been people been like "oh man I'm turning six next month i'm so excited to start working in the coal mines i'm finally gonna have a job". every generation has had stress abotu work and it just so happens that the baby boom overspending excess generation created a lifestyle that caters more toward the existential frustrated 'lazy' millenial generation
lol at raise a family. i've met a lot more people who hope to have a good marriage and family, than those who are "i'm gonna live in loneliness and despair the rest of my life i can't wait"
lol at acquiring a home, because the notion that people prefer more economically viable, for personal and for real estate and for overpopulation and for the benefit of having a solid family around all the time so you don't have to pay for day care or your kids get to spend time with their grandparents
lol at go to war.

lol at me actually getting irritated over this but whatever such is life
will someone carry me across ten thousand miles under the silence

I kinda get what OP's saying. Not the 80/20 rule or whatever, but sometimes modern life just seems boring. The stakes aren't that high. You aren't fighting for your life or hunting meat for the tribe or anything. It's kinda just bleh.

I know actually living like a caveman or something would suck after about 5 minutes but it's something I think about sometimes. We evolved as animals and we don't live anything like animals anymore.
