I was once an approval addict.

This is a repost of a previous article.

I recently watched a video by a chap on how to cure an approval addiction. His advice came down to this little snippet:

“Learn to feel okay with not feeling okay.”

As a fully recovered approval addict I’m not too impressed with this advice. It might sound acceptable to some of you, but in essence the very act of seeking approval is because you don’t feel okay. The speaker is trying to tell us that this can never be cured and you must just learn to live with it. He is effectively saying that change is not possible. I disagree with this message. Here is his video:

On holiday for a week.

With the move finally complete the good wife and I are taking a short break as a nice reward for a job well done. We are off to a sunny locale which has an abundance of good food, excellent wine, and hopefully some random eye candy.

I am also taking a break from the internet. No computer, no phone, no nothing. With that in mind I have set up an article for each day next week which will be a repost of something that I have already published. I have chosen articles from early last year when I was really ramping up the output level here on the blog but the audience was still rather small. As such, many of you may well have missed some of these pieces and I think they hold up well.

Any new commenters will have to wait to have their comments approved when I return next Saturday. And to all my regular commenters, try not to get up to too many shenanigans.

Hawt chicks & links – No Nazis here, man.

Okay, so this week has been a little … Nazi orientated. So that means a clean sweep of the broom here on the Friday links. No mentions at all of certain flags, certain uniforms, certain regalia, certain incoherent attitudes. Just good clean hawt chicks and links fun. It’s what you want, and if it’s not what you want then that just means that you don’t know what you want, but don’t worry; I know what you want.

You want it, baby.

On to the links and stuff. Viewer discretion is advised. Having a sub-optimal intelligence and a tendency to be easily distracted will harm your …

I’m sorry, what?

It’s time to correctly label Nazis.

I’ve been copping flack both here and other areas of the internet for daring to criticize some of the people who were at the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally. Apparently any criticism at all is punching right and that makes me as bad as the cuckservatives.

For the punch the right analogy to hold true then the people that I am punching must by definition be on the right of the political spectrum. Piling shit on ANTIFA could not in any way be construed as punching right. With that in mind I have a little history lesson for some of you.
