Animals, Bones, and Drugs: Humans of New York 5 hrs "I used heroin for ten years. It wasn't a very good life, as you'd expect. I had my son taken from me. I lost my job at the Fiat factory. I spent all my time trying to find money, find dealers, and stay away from police. I hated myself. I couldn't face anyone. Then one day my friend's dog had puppies. I'd never had a dog before, but I always liked animals- so I told him to give me the smallest and ugliest one he had. The one nobody else wanted. And that's how I got Joe. Joe was the angel of my life. We understood each other. There was no need for words. He followed me around all the time. He slept next to me on the street. The moment I opened my eyes in the morning he would lick my face. He gave me self-esteem. I was a complete loser but at least I could take care of Joe. I could bring him to the park. I could bring him to the vet. I could raise enough money to get his medication. He's the reason I was finally able to quit heroin. Because if something happened to me, what would happen to him? So I got clean. It was hard but I got clean. Joe lived for another thirteen years. He got a tumor in 2012 and held on a few more months. I barely survived it. I was able to stay off drugs, but I promised myself that I'd never get another dog. It's just too painful. But two years ago I found Leica beneath a mobile home. She was all skin and bones. She'd been abandoned. I didn't have a choice. For the first few months I called her Joe. But I had to stop. Because Joe'ss gone. And the name doesn't really matter, anyway. It just matters that I love her." (Rome, Italy) i thought this belonged here a very wholesome story

Brains, Energy, and Food: "You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass." - Bruce Lee Every thought we have activates a cluster of neurons, they send an action potential down the axons to cross synapse that releases neurotransmitters. If we keep reactivating this network, it becomes stronger because surrounding glial cell feed the cluster and it becomes thicker and stronger. We are literally talking ourselves out of success. If something goes wrong in your life and you make the mistake of making it personal telling yourself a shit story about "how it is", you’re dirtying up your mind with dangerous shit. All of our fears are self-created. They form in the brain's default mode network and are greatly amplified when the brain's alarm and avoidance network is on. This drives our decisions because emotion supersedes thought. We fear rejection, embarrassment, loss, and abandonment, powerful emotions that override positive thought. For most people they are focused on what could go wrong and feel embarrassed; this is EXACTLY what creates these emotions that are holding us back. There's a 90-second rule which states that, if one can redirect their focus off the bullshit story, the network will stop firing neurotransmitters down the action potential; that kills the emotion. Negative Emotion is just like too much alcohol, we need to sober up! Most people cannot do this; 15 months ago I couldn't either when it counted the most because there is an underlying cause of stress, cellular stress, which puts the brain in the SAME CHAOS, alarm and avoidance. I call this red stress, and it's in the food supply in the form of AGE's, ALE's, aldehydes, estrogen mimics, microplastics, mitotoxins etc. Your body is at war, and it needs cofactors to fight each battle, and most people lack there too. This war must be financed, it diverts energy to fight battle after battle. You will experience this as being tired, lose focus, become moody and stressed. Wouldn't this energy be better-spent financing focus, passion, and success? Take out red stress💫 I'm building a free course on doing just that, it's opening us soon.

Beautiful, Dancing, and Love: Verizon 1:57 PM * 67% So what did you mean by your inexperience? Inexperienced in many ways. I haven't dated many people, and I'm not very confident when it comes to sex Tue, Sep 5, 1:42 AM If I may it's kind of like dancing, in that when you meet the right person that won't matter at all You could have sex 1000 times with the wrong guy and still feel under confident. But one time with the right man who sees you and treats you with respect and you'll feel like a queen Tue, Sep 5, 7:20 AM That's an empowering thoughts Are you suggesting that you're the "right man"? Tue, Sep 5, 9:25 AM I have no idea, maybe yes maybe no Chemistry is important, and sex is not the end goal for me. It's like wine Great sex is amazing and can be really intoxicating but it doesn't fill you up without a real connection to someone else. Im not trying t To find anything other than a real connection. Laughter, adventure experiences, amazing conversations So I'm very curious about this beautiful girl on tinder who says she's looking for a hook up. That's very uncommon. Is that all you're looking for or are you looking for something more? Tue, Sep 5, 10:38 AM I'm looking for something more, ideally. But I have needs just like anybody else, so if "something more" is a while coming, I'd go for something less with someone who seems trustworthy. It does feel a little weird to put that out there, like I'm pimping myself out. Tue, Sep 5, 12:29 PM All I know about pimping is that it ain't easy I totally understand though. It just caught me by surprise :) I'd love to meet for a drink or tea some time, would you be up for that? Tue, Sep 5, 4:38 PM Sure. When/where? I'm usually available after 6 pm A Year Later, I Married This Girl
