    The best advice I ever got was: if things are bad just don't make them worse. I sincerely wish I had not learned this late in life because it has made ALL the difference.

    Or alternative worse-case scenario: you continue to waste time and energy on the wrong idea, when you could be spending it on the right one. Every situation is somewhat unique, every solution slightly different to the last. Always adapt.

    Jon Bois is a fucking legend. Check out his videos on Youtube. The one about Randall Cunningham seizing the means of production against the scab Cowboys was one of the most beautiful sports videos you'll ever see.

    Everyone seems to think this means you sit on your butt and watch something play out. I think he means to keep working at something even if you think it’s fruitless and you’re demotivated and you’re gonna give up

    Just no. That is the absolute worst advise on multiple levels. Good advise is always be prepared for anything and everything to go side ways. Also know you literally can not actually do that. You have to pay attention, think on your feet, and as swat and spec ops always say stay fluid. The later is actually a reference to a state of mind (and body) taught in martial arts. It is saying don’t just go with flow but force yourself to become that flow. Move as little or as much as absolutely necessary and if things go sideways move with it and change your footing accordingly.

    Why would you being right be the worst case scenario? Something bad could add on top what you thought.

    Although, to be honest, quitting so that you can go do something else more worthwhile is good too.

    In what scenario is this top notch advice? I understand the “don’t give up” mentality part but not so much the “keep trying in the face of almost certain failure until you break” part

    Me and my sister did 23 and me and we don’t share both parents. We had suspicions over the years it actually kind of became a family joke that I was the Milkman’s son, parents have been divorced awhile but we’re in our 30s so we thought we try it. For the history factor if anything. I have no intention of telling my dad are going to look up my biological dad. He has been a good father to me but it has hurt my relationship with my mother.

    I totally agree. I have experienced sometimes we regret giving up. After we give up then realisation hits us that we shouldn't have.

    Never ever marry nor divorce an attorney with a mental illness. That is the only advice I'm qualified to give. Ps. Don't get seriously injured or sick in the USA.

    Basically, most problems you THINK you have now will probably be irrelevant a month from now. You probably can't even name something you were worried about a month ago.
