Being a nice guy and being a “nice guy”: Know the difference.

There is LITERALLY no difference.

Women don’t owe you shit. We are not sex objects. Too bad if you’re sad about it. You don’t deserve anybody. You are not entitled to another human being.

That’s just how it works.

HOLY SHIT WHAT

IT’S PERFECTLY NATURAL TO BE SAD WHEN SOMEONE YOU’RE INTERESTED IN DOESN’T WANT TO BE WITH YOU

Jesus fucking Christ that’s not entitlement, that’s totally normal disappointment. 

There’s a difference between the first and second pictures and if you can’t see it then holy fuck, I’m sorry about your failing vision. 

The difference is that the first version is being passive-aggressive and the second version is being aggressive, but BOTH of them are coming from the exact same point of view that they’re “supposed to” get the girl they want. Why is this even hard to see?

So at the risk of being crucified, I’m going to have to disagree. Neither is aggressive because there is no third party involved. It’s just a guy, by himself, expressing emotions. If there was another character or characters there, then that would be passive-aggressive or just aggressive. And if he’s alone, I personally don’t see anything wrong with either, although maybe he should reexamine a lot of things if his reaction is the latter. Haven’t you ever wanted something, and then not gotten it? Wanting something inherently induces the feeling of “I’m supposed to get it”. Name me a time that’s not true. Again, if these views were expressed outwardly to another person, this is a different story. It’s ok to feel angry or upset if some things don’t go your way. That is human. What you do with those feelings is the part all of you should be arguing about.

You may be thinking to yourself, “He’s talking to me! He is being (passive or not) aggressive to me.” Wrong.

The titles are This Is Ok, This Is Not Ok. Not I Am Ok/Not.

'This' implies a certain removed and objective look at a person, from an uninvolved perspective. And if you think the girl he wanted is there….well then we should be more concerned about why expresses at her in the third person.

Is there a nice way of letting people know they’re putting their agenda into something that’s not there?

Alright, gotta go. I see some women in need of my blatant, patriarchal oppressiveness over there.

Why Writers Are the Worst Procrastinators

writingbox:

Fantastic article on the psychology behind procrastinating, and why writers are particularly susceptible to it.

“Work finally begins,” says Alain de Botton, “when the fear of doing nothing exceeds the fear of doing it badly.” For people with an extremely fixed mind-set, that tipping point quite often never happens. They fear nothing so much as finding out that they never had what it takes.
