> Since Kinsey’s studies in the late 1940s, credible estimates of heterosexual Americans’ lifetime infidelity have been all over the map— for men, 12 to 72 percent, for women, 7 to 54 percent.
> Infidelity is associated with: previous cheating; relationship boredom, dissatisfaction, and duration; expectations of imminent break-ups; and low-frequency, poor-quality partner sex. Among men, risk also increases when partners are pregnant or there are infants in the house.
> Revisiting our values entails seeking fundaments for what we seek for 2030—and, more importantly, beyond. One of our biggest losses is in caring: caring for ourselves and for people and environments. Dominant values promote inward-looking, short-term thinking for action yielding immediate, superficial, and short-lived gains.
i.e. People should give a fuck. At this point, I'm all for the propaganda of caring.
I'm up bc I couldn't fall back asleep after thinking about my old friendships with guys. This was playing in my head https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ou1CUAFfd0Q
When I say I was sadistic I meant I had an elevated sense of self-worth and considered prioritizing myself as unproblematic because I was better than other people based on the fact that I had x, did x, with x intentions, and had x skills or abilities. It sounds like the work of an idiot but it’s common to think this way.
I say these things from experience. I used to be pretty sadistic but I was deeply unhappy because I didn’t have the support of my family and my friends would keep showing me that friendship was temporary
I can’t find meaning in money. I just don’t get it. I can do everything myself so I don’t need most services. Entertainment is exactly that - mere entertainment that doesn’t actually enrich my life. Buying tangible objects is fun but I’m not thinking about them at the end of my days or as a way to improve my life as a whole. Apart from survival and feeling a false sense superiority, where’s the meaning in money?
My life has been fraught with problems so I’ve had to constantly correct my brain and made a habit of it. I don’t mind it. I think it makes me more mature in the absence of more life experience.
