Do you people relax?

Do you people ever just relax, half of you complain about not earning enough and the other half about creating value to society. Reading this forum has almost become a replica of the American Psycho book. The obsession with fitting in and trying to be picture perfect is crazy. It is evident why most of the top ranked posts are about dating cause you don't know how to turn off. (Why do you think girls are obsessed with comedians) It is a very American/British thing many of you can't just go to a restaurant or grab a drink and just sit and talk for several hours without thinking how will this benefit my life, or trying to get ready for the next thing you have planned in an hour.

Just relax stress kills.

What do you mean, "you people?"

"If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them." - Bruce Lee

Just relax stress kills.

So does poverty.

And so does not fitting in, in many parts of the world.Β  I'm sure the Indian Muslims facing down an angry Hindu mob got a lot of traction with the "stress kills" argument.

Not really saying to not work hard at work, most of the posts on here are about how to date etc. Many cant just switch off when they are not working

Bro, what? Asking questions on dating has nothing to do with being constantly "on" all the time. I agree with your initial premise - it's unhealthy to not be able to flip the switch off and take a breather when you're not in the office but asking questions about dating doesn't relate, despite how retarded these questions are. I think you need to take into account these are often from IB SAs and AN1s who are in the office 15+hrs/day

Confidence, if you look at it most good comedians arent by societies standards aren't good looking, many also went through some life experiences listen to Patrice O'Neal etc.

If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything.
