One of the stages of grief is depression. Discovering that you've been lied to your entire life is certainly cause for grief. So part of the process of unplugging from the Matrix, leaving the plantation, taking the red pill, (pick your own metaphor), is, quite often, dealing with feelings of depression, sadness, whatever you want to call it. And it's not like it's a "One and done" kind of thing. At least, for me it hasn't been. It seems like I'm back and forth between depression, anger, and acceptance quite a bit. Denial was life until the red pill, and I there has been no bargaining. Once I woke up to reality, I knew that there was no way to get the lie back, so bargaining is pointless.
Dealing with the depression part of the cycle is hard. It's easier when you've got a community of men who are also awake to reality to talk to, but it's still difficult.
One of the members on a forum I frequent posted this, and I thought it bears repeating. I may SAY that I shamelessly stole it, but the truth is I'm not stealing it, since I won't even attempt to take credit for it. All credit goes to the poster whose handle is womanhater. This guy has been through some shit, that's for sure. He's one of the men who make me realize just how relatively unscathed I was through my marriage/divorce.
Anyway, enough of my ramblings. Womanhater's post, in all its glory.
Over the past few weeks, I've noticed a few threads that have a
depressed feel and theme to them. These are usually posted up by men
who've realized the inescapable truth about the nature of the world and
especially the station of men in it.
While it is certain that there is an initial shock when you come to
understand that EVERYTHING you've been taught from birth is abject
bullshit, this does not need to cripple you or depress you. You were
born into an insane asylum which all the inmates insisted was in fact a
five star beach resort. You tried for decades to believe it, but you
finally just had to exclaim that the emperor has no fucking clothes -
even if only to yourself in the solitude of your own mind.
But, this should not sadden or depress you brothers. Rather than being
forced to live the life of a slave - giving endlessly, sacrificing your
hopes and dreams on the altar of what some fucking duplicitous gash
wants or to 'society' or 'the greater good' or 'your country' or
whatever the fuck everyone else demands of you, you are instead
liberated in a way that no generation of men has been since likely the
times of the Vikings.
Embrace this knowledge. It has been hard fought and came at a terrible
price by your brothers who gather here to share it with you. Those of us
who've been through the family court ass raping, or have been the
victims of false allegations, or who've had our children stolen away
from us never to return give you these pearls of great price so that you
might live as we ought to have.
There is no cause for sadness in learning that Santa is not real! For
you've been given the Rosetta Stone in deciphering life on this planet.
Instead, see that the scales ripped from your eyes allow you to see
things as they truly are, and rather than hoping for fulfillment in the
ways that all the miserable people around you advocate, instead strike
out and pursue YOUR happiness. Follow YOUR dreams and hopes and
aspirations! Let 100% of your labor benefit YOU.
Leave the parasites to themselves. You've no obligation to anyone who
would lay claim on your life or your efforts or your wealth. You've no
obligation to die on a foreign battlefield for a state that is your
enemy. You've no obligation to fulfill the nesting instincts of a twat
or to satiate some miserable fucking cunt's advanced case of baby
rabies. You've no obligation or duty to prevent some carousel hopping
womyn's studies major HR cunt from becoming a lonely barren spinster
listening to her ovaries turn to dust.
Your only obligation is to the men who've enlightened you! Those men
who've borne their pain and their suffering so that YOU may be saved
have a claim on you - and because we are your brothers, all we demand in
payment is that YOU live for YOURSELF! We demand that you live the
lives we would have lived had this body of wisdom been available to us
before we'd been ensnared in this evil system and toxic order.
Be joyous my brothers! You truly have been delivered from evil, and there is NO cause for anything but exceeding joy.
