You and your friends go hiking up a mountain. You’re walking uphill and you start to get thirsty. So you take a sip from your water bottle. Then you offer some to your friends.
One of your friends say “No thanks, I’m sick. I’m not trying to get anyone else sick too.” In response, you nod your head and continue on.
You know that your friend is aware of his sickness because he told you he was sick. And then he made his decision to not take a drink. He’s both aware of his sickness and his ability to make a choice.
The Sickness Is All Around US.
Let’s move onto more obscure examples of the sickness:
If you’re Mexican and you don’t know Spanish, your typical “go-to” response for not knowing Spanish is typically, “I didn’t learn because my parents never taught me”. But that’s not the truth. You’re blaming ‘the sickness’. Your sickness is that they never taught you. The truth is that ultimately you decided not the learn.
Here’s an example on a relationship level:
“I got caught in the moment and one thing led to another and we had sex,” The moment is the ‘sickness’. Although you blame the sickness, the truth is that you deliberately cheated.
Here’s an example on a societal level:
“I didn’t get that job that I wasn’t qualified for, it’s all the patriarchy’s fault” The patriarchy is the ‘sickness’. Although the truth is you may just be less qualified than the man/woman who does get the job.
What’s the Cure?
Stop pretending that you’re sick you fucking psycho! It’s obvious that you’re not. And if you really want to claim that you are: Great! You’ve just admitted that you’re mentally sick in the head. And you’re not wrong!
You’re infected with the need to constantly make excuses. You like to believe that you have no control of what’s happening to you in your life. But guess what? That’s the world’s greatest lie!
There are people who blame the sickness. And then there are people who are allergic to their bullshit.
Because the sickness is bullshit.
Have you ever noticed that bullshitters tend to be the easily offended? It’s because you’ve uncovered their ruse and deep down they are in denial. They bullshit themselves into believing that they have no power, that they have no choice.
You’ve always had a choice. And you chose to blame the sickness. But newsflash! The sickness doesn’t exist! You only think it exists because you have a shortage mindset and rely on victimhood.
Grab your nuts and take some responsibility for your life.
You can have a run-in with dirty destiny, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But you’re always responsible for your response. So you can either take control and act like a stud, or fail and bullshit just like a dud.
Which is it?
Are you going to blame the sickness and be a fucking loser?
Or are you going to take control of your situation and rise above?
It’s your call
