My dad used to tell me, ‘if you think the truth hurts, try getting caught in a lie.’ He came from a family of compulsive liars, so he had intimate knowledge about the dangers of untruths.
I love that!
Thanks for sharing
@Akash FutureGroups thats a kinda trash mindset ngl face reality and get stronger, avoiding it and lying to yourself makes you weaker and more fragile. A coward, really.
@Ghost of Uchiha Thank you
My absolutely wonderful Mother who has always been my best friend. Told me when I was young. Don’t worry about what people think of you because they are way too busy worrying about what others think of them. Wise lady my Mother.
You're so lucky to have her. And she, you.
My brain is thinking like him.. but my mouth cant say the words the same...I absolutely love this man... He's a Genius.
Glad I'm not the only one
That’s why it is important to be articulate
@Seraph 【MAD】 how can i become more articulate? I can think of very unique ways to come with ideas and solutions but have a hard time speaking it out or expressing it socially
@kevin ali Try to express your inner self writing down your thoughts or saying it like if you were telling it to someone.
The same thing applies whether you start to write articles on a newsletter, blog etc...
Another important factor is being a good listener. Listen to people who express complex thoughts and ideas and pay attention to how they convey their words. Both vocabulary and grammar are important here. After you listened to them, try to replicate those words or ways of speaking in real life based on the scenarios that manifest to you or write it first in case you have many ideas and you are not sure where to start from. Lastly, review from time to time those notes or, however you call it, that you create, to be sure not to forget proper words and grammatical structures.
Hopefully this will help you a little.
As a consequence of describing the reality with more accuracy, you will feel much more satisfied and will find yourself living in a more peaceful way.
That's based on my own experience at least.
One of the greatest moments of my life is when all of a sudden one day I realized it doesn’t matter what people think. You are who you are and no matter who you are you can never be liked by everyone, ever. It’s impossible and that’s ok.
But if you are real with your emotions and everyone sees you as something that’s maybe not a good thing then it’s ok to admit and change. It’s a balance, everything in life seems to be. Don’t care about the odd random person that doesn’t like you when 10 other people do
And for those who feel like they have to lie to impress others. Well life is about learning and building ourselves into something better. If you lie and cheat people and yourself then you never will know what you need to work on because your interactions can’t give you real raw feedback.
Be real and learn and build
In our world full of lies, corruption and control, it is so refreshing hearing from one of the greatest humans currently alive on what really is important. Love you Jordan
@Larisa good joke
@mikko not a joke❤️
@Larisa can u explain what makes him a sexist person?
Careful response, belief in Truth, a willingness not to cave, demanding the Truth from your own lips and to break the cycle of lies. These are all things we have forgotten. Thank you Jordan for your advice!
AND THE FIRST LIE THAT NEEDS SOME TRUTH IS THE MONEY SCAM....
@McBuggs THAT'S WHAT HE SAID....
Thanks for the summary, wrote it down and now can immerse myself in his words.
Every now and again this man says something so profound, it bewilders me that I had not understood it before. A true teacher and intellectual of our times
Because whenever someone says something genuinely good, theres always a 'thats offensive' or 'thats narcassism!' or 'but what about me!' that immediately follows it. Every good statement is viewed as an attack upon people that have resigned themselves to a lifetime of misery. 'Fatphobia' is the latest one. You can't just help people that are fat and miserable, because you might upset the people that are fat and love it. People, as a result, just stop trying to help. Who wants the headache?
I feel the same way about self help books. They say stuff you already knew but needed to hear in order to act on it.
@JoeIsOut2lunch Jordan has a way of articulating things in a way that make what he is aging impossible to dispute. He’s saying things you already know subconsciously, but never had articulated to you in a way that uou can no longer easily ignore it.
His gift is his ability to articulate common sense as intellectual insight in a way that you can understand and still respect t a higher level.
Hes Canadian and I am American, but I still consider him a national treasure.
@andre n dude seriously? As an adult you think it’s logical to compare him to hitler? Based off what? Please articulate that thought process.
I’m truly curious how that makes sense to you. I never noticed him inciting hatred of other people but I’m sure you must know something I missed that’s why you made that perfectly reasonable and verifiable statement right?
@Tommey Too-Me he says things people disagree with so they call him a monster. Ive tried searching for the things people claim hes said thats bad about women and I cant find anything so i dont know.
You won't care what others think when you have confidence. You'll have confidence when you learn to consistently hold the view that no matter what the outcome is of anything, that you'll be ok. That's how to have complete confidence, and thus not caring what others think of you.
A lot of people mistake arrogance for confidence. This is a persona that makes him money
Yup. I told the truth and stuck to my integrity in a scenario and I was ‘mobbed’ by the incompetent and lying masses. I was so bewildered by the experience at the time as I had never known people to attack in such a way. All it took was a couple of narcissistic bullies and most of the others followed although not all. Taught me things I don’t know about people and myself. I would do the same again. I would rather do the right thing and stand by my integrity even though it was really hard and painful.
The first flames of the wicked forge will always hurt the worst. But you will come forth as pure gold in the end, brother.
I had the same happen to me too.
The same thing happened to me !!! First time I truly felt "persecuted" .... a whole classful, except for a few ....when I was in beauty school. All because me and one other person stood up to the narcissistic, psychopath teacher who literally made grown women cry almost weekly in front of the whole class by humiliating them, among other neurotic things she did. Her mob turned against me out of fear. I then understood, to some extent, how people could turn on their own families and align themselves with the likes of Adolf Hitler. I have never fully viewed people the same again. This was over 10 years ago. It ain't lookin good folks.
@WingedInfinity mob mentality at its best. Human behavior is really weird in groups.
Just discovered this man. He broke my heart at the last minute. Protect him.
It's actually insane to me how so many people will go to such lengths to attack others. People that really don't deserve to be attacked, and the people slandering and threatening are actually blatantly unaware they are the ones actually being toxic.
This was actually inspiring and made me realize that being authentic is important
Then why does he lie so much?
@ Nathan yeah that sums it up pretty good. Just because a person chooses not to believe something doesn’t mean it isn’t real.
@Nathan from your statement it would be fair to say, that you, sadly, could easily be sucked into a cult.
Yes look into the patterns for cult behaviour, yes and we both, probably, understand that we have been brought up in certain cult-ures too.
You knew already that. Dr. Peterson is just there to remind you and show you by example.
" you are fast becoming what you will soon be"
My husband, as a teenager, worked for this man who like quotes. This one he often shared with him. What a powerful little seed of a truth to plant.
The closing words..."It's not bravery man, it's faith in the redeeming power of truth, and that's different." Nice 🙌🏼
I am so glad this man has touched so many people in this world while the world itself had seemingly lost its compass.
This man is so brilliant. He's not beholden to anybody simply by thinking carefully and sticking to his faith in the clarity of truth. Wow.
very impactful and empowering. I have utmost respect for Jordan and his message of being honest and not caring what others think.
7:10 "If you didn't do something wrong, don't apologize." Thank you Dr. Jordan Peterson!
i am quite sociopathic and i have always wondered : why do people apologize on Twitter ?. you are there to prove others wrong and stand undefeated and undeterred, don't ever apologize.
There’s nothing wrong for apologizing you hurt somebody’s feelings, despite not being sorry for your opinion….
How can we define something "wrong"? Thats subjective, so this advice is questionable
@Herman Helmich he said if you didnt do anything wrong
Brave, beyond smart, morally complete, compassionate, brilliant. A gifted legend. If only we had politicians and world leaders that where remotely like this man the world would be a much better place.
Am feel good when someone like Jordan is there to tell truth to society. We need it
After a terrible year of cancer treatment, I realized that what you're saying and thinking and doing the best you can is VERY important. One of the things that now I do that is realizing that I need to be truthful. I appreciate what Peterson is saying agrees with that.
Cool. What helps u handle ur pain? Mentally and physically
@uRealReals fentanyl and oxis.....taking care of my mother now thats advanced stage 4, so horrible knowing they are in pain and you can do next to nothing
The worst thing is when you're an honest person but somehow the dishonesty of others wins.
Even then you're able to go to bed knowing whatever they said or did is on them.
You did the best you could do to be genuine.
Keep things as factual and conscise as possible.
Feelings and opinions are another matter.
But yes the best way to be less concerned with what other people think is in keeping your conscious as clean as humanly possible.
Don't ever join em'
Even though many times you can't beat em'....
This is genuine advice. The error of speech is not in being wrong. The error rests in making no effort to learn if you are wrong. When you do not pause to consider what you meant, to defend it, amend it or otherwise, you hand over the power. You allow others to decide for you.
Whenever I listen to Jordan I hear the voice of a caring grandfather. He is the definition of bravery, and I truly hope for more people like him!
I love him because he remains calm and collected. Even when he gets emotional it isn't in a seeking attention or approval kind of way. It's very genuine and very sweet. The fact that the media has tried to demonize him is beyond me
We need the most of this bravery and character, wisdom, intelligence, heart, and care we ever could possibly have for our lives.
I hear Kermit the Frog. Like if Kermit was a serious clinical psychologist.
This man’s words and wisdom I listen to everyday and I shake my head on how I’m living my life thank you my friend I hope you and your family are well in a cruel cruel confused world we live in
Well said. Most people live their daily lives in relative obscurity. They keep their heads down and fly below the radar. If you stand up and state an opinion about anything, half the people will disagree. If you live your life trying to make everyone like you, its impossible, so you just try to make sure nobody hates you. If you say what that half wants to hear, then the other half hates you. In essence, you get to choose which half hates you. So...be you true self.
This is one of the channels that gave me the courage to start my Clip-Share channel 2 months ago about self development. Now I have 145 subs and almost 75 hours of watch time. I know it’s not comparable with others but I’m still proud I started because I’ve been learning so many lessons that I couldn’t have learned without getting started in the 1st place.
Preciso ouvir esse discurso toda manhã. Isso é muito útil
I’ve felt this way for about 15 years. Ended a relationship with a woman I truly loved. And never gave a shit what anyone thought about me ever again. I was the better half. Her life is a lie. My life is pretty good. Good things come to those who don’t care about what other people think.
THAT'S USUALLY BECAUSE THEY TAKE WHAT THEY WANT WITHOUT OTHER PEOPLE THINKING.....
Trying to do the same thing now.
Peer pressure and the desire to fit in can make you feel sick and make you not want to be your weird self. You are unique. Find someone unique like you.
This is amazing. I've been trying to learn how to just be myself, and my own being. I need the strength to be rude or angry sometimes because without that I'm just a walking matt. I will try to be a firmer person from now on.
A LOT of people on social media need to hear this message.
@Everything i say is right huh 😅
@Everything i say is right i agree with you)
Yeah you right ...
and in congress & the senate. :)
hearing is one thing
understanding is another and that's where we lose them
Saw this video just when I needed it! Made me feel reassured... Believe in truth, and don't back down because of whatever other people may say
We are blessed to have this man, in our presence, in this lifetime! 👊
Such a good man he's the teacher I always wished I had and I'm so grateful for his wisdom, god bless
I speak my truth these days. Even before I read others’ comments, I type my own own truths. Sometimes I am taken aback by bullies and people who just cannot stand for someone to think differently than themselves who really do come out with a mean streak against me. But who would I be if I am all “wishy washy” with my thoughts, ideas and opinions. Sometimes I get to see things from their perspective but I still have my own, real truths.❤
Great clip. Thank you for producing it. It’s inspired me to stay the course and to not care so much if people don’t agree. It’s OK, the truth sets free. Especially when it’s Faith fuelled and destiny focussed. Cheers from Australia.
I used to always lie just to try to impress people and have them think I was cool or I had something in common with them. At the end of the day, even if they believed me, it still didn’t make me more accomplished or more fulfilled. I’m grateful JP taught me to tell the truth or at least don’t lie. I’d rather be boring than be a liar. I own my mistakes. I own my shortcomings. I learned I’m not a loser I’m just not fake anymore and that’s liberating
Good stuff man. I knew a couple of kids like that and I'd like to imagine they're saying the same thing as you today. Great growth I love to hear it
Brilliant and it will be of benefit in unknown ways.
Drew, is that you?
@kowpow 225 Actually my names Tom
@Mitch Tucker Thanks bro
The worst lie I ever told was to myself saying I was the biggest failure ever and I needed to lie just to impress others
Wow...I could just listen to him for hours. What an amazing speaker with an amazing message!
I love this guy.
I wish I have 25% of his ability to verbally express myself. His wisdom is extraordinary, but the way he articulate every single sentence is unmatched.
So glad there are still people out there that think like me. Being truthful, what a concept !!
Faith in the redeeming power of Truth. So beautifully articulated. I’ve always said Truth floats but this is way better. Either way it’s what’s getting me through the tumultuous years we seem to be going through
We need more of this man, please protect him. All of us need to be educated and must not remain ignorant when it comes to things like this.
I’m truly glad to have someone like Jordan in these crazy modern days. It’s delightful to listen to him, hits really hard every time. It feels like a punch in the face to wake up, but in the most good way.
Whats the name of his book he was referring to? Thanks
@HARDWIRED to SELF DESTRUCTION That would be The 12 rules for life
@1 Thank You bro
Your right he is pleasant to listen to but speaks harsh realities. You can still feel his utmost empathy and passion. He's unique.
God, I needed this. Thank you. I was always that person. And I could never love myself. No matter how hard I wanted to, or tried. I didn't understand that I was never me. Too busy trying to conform because the real me stood out. How could I love someone that wasn't me? I've lost so many now with truth, but I've never loved myself more.
I love to listen to this man. I always learn something that makes me a better person. The world needs more like him.
Lol, not to lie?
@D R more than that
@epic said this haha please tell me what secret knowledge this guy has said.
Love this guy. The world is a crazy, messed-up circus at the moment and would inevitably end in the demise of free will and freedom were it not for a small handful of champions speaking common sense and reason, regardless of personal cost. Mr Peterson is one of these champions, and long may he live.
Brilliant human being that we need more of in the world. Many people relate to what he just said, but few could verbalize it.
If you enjoy topics about mastery and masculinity, I invite you to explore the videos on the Mastery Order Channel.
Challenge yourself with some ideas about manhood, explore your masculine potential to the maximum and become the kind of man you would look up to.
We can only better ourselves together, as men among men, so I invite you to use what I share and, of course, share your own thoughts so that others can benefit from them as well.
All the best to you!
this man has so much common sense in his words, love his approach and style of explaining the complex
Omg! I really needed to hear these words this week! Thank you prof Jordan Peterson your words relieved me from so much anxiety. The truth shall set me free at last!
Notthe truth,its acceptens that people will not love you.. that will set you free.. accept people dont need to love you and youwill be free to be what you want to be
@Fortitude120 Rather you need to realise the flip side of that which is that you are the love that came into the world to love it well 💖
@Sand NuggeR Cringe at saying cringe
I am grateful to be alive at a time I can listen to such a historically great philosopher.
Wow first time I’ve heard of this man. What a blessing! Especially right now In my life. So very grateful! 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
This is by far the most inspiring thing I have heard in my life. Its almost ridiculous how revealing this is. Good Lord...
Ive never watched these... this is exactly what I've been feeling for the entire last month.. I keep seeing these videos of him talking, and I've experienced everything he is saying. I will never stop being myself. It is the most freeing thing one can experience.
Takes great resilience to believe in your truth and put them in words.
Hours and hours of this man's interviews, and speeches and I still have observed not one word I disagree with. He has changed my life for the better. One of history's great statesmen. Listen and learn.
He's Canadian, not a statesman.
@Aaron B Statesman: a skilled experienced political leader or figure.
Sounds like hero worship
@John Galt Amen
Wow. Just wow. This right here. This is what humanity needs. We need truth regardless of the outcome. Trust and put faith that truth will prevail. 🌎 ✊
God bless you Professor Jordan Peterson, I really really needed to hear this at the junction of that i've found myself. I'm confident that I'd make the right decisions from here on out.
I think this is an extension on his talks about the pitfalls of being too agreeable. This is a lesson I am still coming to grips with. Thanks to Jordan and thanks to this channel for preparing this video.
He is a true truth seeker and he understands,he should be the world's leading researcher,and he exposes the lies in people.We should be proud we have this man in our life time.
Everytime I listen to this type of information after retaking my life, it fills me with energy.
Know what will help you more? Quit loosing it in the first place.!!
I have come across Peterson on and off again for around a year. I do not understand the hate this brilliant man receives. Some of the things he says about the human experience moves me greatly because I never sort out my feelings or thoughts in a well thought out analytical kind of way. When I listen to Peterson I realize that I am hiding, and I’m not confronting myself. I have given up on the adventure of my life and have gone through the motions. I still don’t feel able to change myself but I recognize that I’m losing my life and my soul. I hope I can change my inevitable outcome in my life to a better future. Thank you for all you do Dr. Peterson and staying true to your pursuit of provoking self reflection and thought. I am always moved when I hear you break down the human element.
i think everyone who tells the truth is hated because a lots of people gets offended by that
@pityu213 yes because facts which is truth in a way dont care about your feelings. They state things and forces you to deal with them.
@Austin I have only one thing to say - your not alone. I see your words as if they were my own. There are many other people who are like this in the world. You are definitely not alone.
What worked for me besides other things is to see how much most people are alike me. Afraid to say something, not sure about other people's personalities, wanting to be liked etc.
Now I just see things i normally see in myself in others, people I think are smart doing stupid stuff, people I consider extroverted being shy to say something, or unsure. Etc
We've been told since childhood some very profound lessons, so often and repetetively that we they have lost value to us. This guy just basically reminded us why we shouldn't lie in a manner that gives value to that moral once again and we need to do that with every other ethic we're taught; increase the emphasis as we grow more mature, tell us more why it's good for us.
One of his more powerful pieces. Such an inspiring figure. I wish I was more like him.
This was helpful for what I’m trying to do with my sports podcast. It’s a lot less serious because there are sports mobs but you just tell them what’s in your heart and let their reaction fall where it may
This interview is now my most favorite of all. Take your stand, carefully, but stand none the less. And don't apologize. Got it!
Could you tell where I can find this full version?
@Tanat Srisomruk I'm not sure, there are so many on Clip-Share.
Man I never really thought about how hard it would be to have mobs coming after you, calling you scum and the worst person to walk the face of the earth. I hope Jordan remembers all the people he’s helped during those 2 week periods. This man is amazing
Yeah think of how many minorities go through this everyday. Judged by their appearance. Looked down on and denied opportunities. All for something they can't alter or change.
I'm glad he survived 2 weeks of it.
@Derek Cook Going against your entire comment buddy.
@Ky0shin how so?
The key is to avoid a life on social platforms. Logging in to watch 2 week old comments that were forgotten about by others that same evening is kind of satisfying. Knowing you ignored them so hard, you didn't even show up to read what they had to write.
Simply wow , I been struggling w this a while now and I find truth in his message because I lived it. Thank you
8mins of life changing, intellectual conversation
My mom used to tell me, ‘if you think the truth hurts, try getting caught in a lie.’ He came from a family of compulsive liars, so he had intimate knowledge about the dangers of untruths.
Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for sharing.
The first time and every time I’ve listen to this man talk, its always been so easy to take it in and understand what he’s saying. It’s almost like it’s common sense and it shocking to me how others can’t understand what he explains. It’s gotten to the point where I literally think people are just so arrogant and egotistic to let go of what they currently believe, to just sit and listen and to be proved wrong, verbally, with common sense. It actually scares me how many people don’t understand what this man talks about. Like he doesn’t blow up at you, he’s literally trying to teach you what he knows with examples, evidence, like the man has studied psychology for 20 years and people who are, what half his age? Try to challenge him? LOL
Thankyou , I know he is correct . This has been my whole life and having him explain and validate my experiences is a gift.
It took me a long time to stop worrying about what others think about me. In the end it became a matter of survival as I am not easy to get along with by my nature. You can imagine the frustration of desperately wanting to be liked but being disagreeable. So at some point in my early 30s I decided it was more important to be true to myself and the world can adjust or get out of the way. I still am not very likable but I don't have to deal with much BS either.
What you think about yourself matters, if you see yourself as not likable, then, you're going to be not likable. At least that is how I see it.
"By name here alone, i already like u. "the pen is mightier than the sword."- a quote for others who've never heard it. :)
At the end of our journey it won’t matter. Stay true to the truth, and stay true to your nature. It doesn’t matter what other people think, they aren’t you.
And there you have it.It doesn't matter what others think.
Much better. Gives u peace of mind
I love the confidence with which this man talks..
Such a faithful man! 👍
Faith in the redeeming power of truth.
That has to be single most powerful sentence I have ever heard. This is going to stick in my mind forever now when I am face d with hardships and tough situations.
I think the scariest part of everything he said is that some people are forced to live this way, they can’t speak the truth for fear of real life repercussions. It hasn’t reached a breaking point yet in most western or “1st world civilizations”. But it seems we go further down this rabbit hole almost daily.
Truly my favorite human. This man has so much to contribute to humanity.
I've lost so many friends for telling the truth. Everyone is so comfortable with lying to make them or others seem virtuous or respectful. Now the friends that abandoned me for truths want back in my life...but too bad...you already showed me how you behave and respond to reality.
It wise to give second chances too. People can change for good too.
Just a thought. Have a nice day.
What an INCREDIBLY valuable speech! God bless Jordan Peterson.
I truly hope one day this man will be looked back on as one of the greatest of his time...
When I said to myself; "I will no longer suffer for love", my life changed completely, so I stopped behaving like a victim who blames to everybody. On the other hand, I'm not an atheist anymore thanks to Jordan, and if I had him face to face, I'd tell him; "Thank you for existing Mr. Peterson, there should be more people like you on this Earth". I apologize if I get emotional when I talk about him.
Bookmarking. I am also a die hard truth teller. And he's right, it doesn't always bode well in the short term, and I struggle with that. Meanwhile I'm looking at the people who lie to get through tough situations, and it appears that they have the lighter load to carry. However, there is the bigger picture to consider. As of today, I'm adopting Peterson's two week rule.
i tell you tearfully that what he did for me is so transformative. i was lost when i came upon the Gospel then Mr.Jordan Peterson. i went to rehab at 56 y o and am now 4 years free of a 20 year opiate to heroin to fentanyl addiction. i was a garbage head after my kids grew up i was already 8 years on pain killers to keep me working then lonliness set in i was getting my meds stolen from me constantly and running out from gross abuse of it . 2010 i had contracted MRSA in my spine i was 2 months in hospital this wrecked me i spent the next 10 years homeless on and off shooting garbage estranged from my daughters. I was saved in a mission. A seed of grace,faith and forgiveness began to grow Hallelujah ! Since that day with great advice and guidance from the Holy spirit ive maintaind sobriety and gotten certified as a recovery coach in hopes i too could a 10th of the man Mr .Peterson is
You sound like an extremely inspirational person. Your story actually made me feel something very deep. The word Hallelujah jumped out at me. I felt that. I am proud of you. ❤
He always says what I need to hear ❤️ bless Mr Peterson & his family!
Are you nervous? Because in the surface you look calm and ready
Arms are heavy.
I opened my mouth, but the words won't come out.
@Moms Spaghetti giggity
The best way to not care about what others think of you is deleting social media or atleast taking a break for a year. It’s so peaceful once the loneliness starts to fade
Best thing I ever did. I will never go back.
Somebody who never lies never has to remember what they said. I always say what I believe to be true. It can make you really unpopular with certain people, usually fake people so thats fine by me 😂. It makes me feel free being truthful about absolutly everything. I embrace my darker side and my negative aspects a never hide them from everyone, who's perfect at the end of the day? Definatly not me 😂😂. Also being truthful gets you out of so many things that you would rather not do. The amount of times I've heard people moaning about being somewhere or doing something because they felt obliged for whatever reason. Just say no for fuck sake 😂.
As a kid I learned this, most of my middle school teachers hated me because I didn't bend over for them and listen to what they had to say. Most of them acted like children and gossiped around the drama of children and so I treated them as such of course I was still a kid so the manner I acted could've been smarter, I simply slept in class and failed them but just because I did that in class didn't mean I didn't bother to learn for myself. I self taught a lot of what I know, getting to highschool my life got better and had more mature teachers I was willing to listen to and enjoy. Highschool was definitely amazing for me.
I''ve only known about Jordan Peterson for just over a year, can't believe I'd not heard of him before then. I've tuned into many videos where he is is lecturing, giving an interview or doing his/a podcast, and like you, can find nothing but sound reasoning and simple (and some complicated) common sense. Yes, he's a great speaker, but few people have the ability to explain things in layman's terms so that even the masses can understand his message, and in such a way that does not intimidate, bully or threaten one into submission. He's a good man...trying to do SOMETHING to save us from ourselves.
It’s is easier to live a truth than to live a lie.
After I grew up to realize my dad tell small lies because of convenience I started losing a lot of the respect I've had for him. You might call it a small lie but in the long run it snowballs into something that shapes the view people have of you. Always be truthful, especially to those who are close to you. They deserve truth and respect and don't ever use lies to "protect" them because that is no protection at all.
Would you kindly elaborate on the small lies?
It's also a lot less work. Telling the truth means you don't need to keep track of what you said. You only need to keep track of what you know.
@Sylvius the Mad but it shapes the way ppl look at u
@A Lamp I'll give you some examples. Saying someone is waiting for him as excuse to leave, lying about what he ate (he has health issues), diminishing things in order to excuse what he did wrong. He's also done a lot worse, when I was younger I rescued a cat that fell from a roof and was trying to find him a home once he was healed, my dad told me his friend would adopt the cat and took him away. I later found out there was a dead cat locked up on the barn of our farm. Was it the same cat? I don't know, even if I confronted him I know he would just lie so I never bothered. This got kinda dark, sorry.
Cant rly confirm. Im a person who always speaks the truth. Always. No matter how socialy unacceptable it is to speak it out loudly. Its a path that leads to loneliness real real quick even if your open minded and able to learn. But on the other hand.. he is right. I absolutely dont care what others think of me and i can handle the loneliness real good... i actually prefer it at this point. But its not for everybody. If youre a social person... this could be hell for you
This showed up in my home page which is funny coz I stopped caring what people think about me around last year, I'm interested to see if they explain it in the method that I used
Edit: okay so yep, post-watching, he's pretty much nailed it on the head with the mindset that I use. When looking at the bigger picture ahead of you or when faced with the inevitable - death awaiting you - it helps you to handle criticism in a very easy way and like your body, your brain is a muscle, the more you grow confident in yourself and your purpose, the more you toughen up to words; you will see those for what they are - just words. Not to say words have no meaning ofc since they're very powerful and moving but I'd only let words have access to your heart when the people you care about most that say things to you, have access to your heart.
That was not a talk, that was a sermon.
Kudos to the wonderful visual editing!
At a place with my family right now where I’m finally starting to see things as they are. I’ve been used my whole life and made to feel less-than even though I did more than any of them combined. I am FINALLY finding MY truth. That’s what’s important to me and is bringing me peace. Trying to let go of the need to feel accepted by them, that’s been hard, but I know i can do it with time
@TiffanyMS same you just echoed my life where my family wants me devoid of hope and home so their son who has a rap-sheet can work using my social security and do you know what I have done to always listen to my parents who I believe are now either black-Magicked or plagued with greed. Stay strong with infinite faith in God. :))
i love the Lord of the Jesus
Be the best person you can be.
When you are, then it doesn't matter what people think of you.
I'm getting really old and what people think is still perfectly aligned with how they treat me. Going through life being beaten and stomped on will change your perspective. How can one be happy when this sociopathic has always exerted great efforts towards destroying you?
Very well said!
One of the greatest mind s and voices of our time , God bless you Jordan 🙏🙏 . His views only sound so strong and sometimes extreme because society has moved so far away from what is real
This was simply the greatest speech i ever heard. Excellenty well articulated and undenniably TRUE.
I don't know the sum total of this man's heart or mind, but the fact that he expounds genuine wisdom, makes me believe that people don't want to hear the truth, and would rather believe the lies.
I am so grateful to Jordan B Peterson for who he is and what he stands for, I too need to tidy my room and learn to speak the truth always, these two are a good place to start anyway. Cheers, Lee.
Total respect for this great human being.
