THE TROLL’S SINGULARLY POTENT WEAPON
In our video series concerning the Troll we covered how the troll basically has only ONE CRUDE INSTRUMENT for which he may hit you on the head over if you are not aware enough [or psychologically, egotistically, spiritually balanced and empowered enough] to avoid.
That weapon is the pathetic AD HOMINEM, the subject of a specific video we produced that you ought to watch. Yes, there are a few others, some basic tactics that we will cover over time that are applicable to others beyond the Troll, but that Troll’s meat and potatoes are the ad hominem.
Why do so many of us just walk into this same trap by the same Loony Tunes character over and over again as if we, too, are just as obtuse as a certain duck?
It is simple; many of us are actually quite INSECURE in ourselves and, perhaps more importantly, in our knowledge and the effort expended to secure knowledge!
TROLL PROBLEMS REQUIRE SOVEREIGN SOLUTIONS
What’s the solution, you say?
TAKE ACTION. Take self-directed and informed action.
What does the Troll help enable you to do?
He, WITH YOUR CONSENT, divides you and others, humiliates you falsely or often times with half-truths and pure sophistry, and just generally helps enable you to develop, sustain, and INFECT with others and the social environments a CAN’T DO, NEGATIVE, DIVISIVE, AND LOSE/LOSE AND AT BEST FALSE ZERO-SUM WIN/LOSE ATTITUDE!
If there is anything in the world more worth conquering and SO EASILY conquerable is the Troll!
However, you simply MUST TAKE ACTION! Small, humble steps, folks, is what it takes! There are a great number of actions to take, but I tell you, the general action of READING for self-knowledge and discovery is a stupendous start!
Look for great book lists! Start getting into self-help materials and empowering BLOGs, podcasts, and websites!
STOP the mere NAME CALLING or avoiding those that are called the names! Get into the actual hard but satisfying work of self-understanding and process of discovery and revelation [Truth].
Is that hard to do? Is side stepping the Troll and his name-calling, his cheese rat trap if you will, truly so difficult? Well, recall the childhood adage and take it to heart at long last:
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.
As much as the inverse has a sort of currency to it these days, being certainly, at minimum, an aggressive fad such as the ‘SAFE SPACES’, going along with trends is a bad idea. [Besides, as you can see with certain entertaining representations of the phenomenon particularly regarding ‘SAFE SPACES,’ such seems…CHILDISH]
I don’t care how many temporary “friends” or psychological pets on the head or virtue signaling or short-term Pyrrhic ‘victories’ that going along yields.
The whims of others should not be a barometer of what you should be doing to live a good life and be a good influence for others. The self-pity and false and avoidable victim mentality sponsored and spread by others is truly a false elixir to what ails you!!!
Additionally, such harms others; for one thing, such today imperils once cherished notion of FREE SPEECH! Those that feel bullied, by Trolls or whatever, go about being CRY BULLIES, using their victim-hood, perceived or otherwise, to cause a whole lot of individuals real problems with their own liberties.
Instead of being a CRY BULLY, a T.I.T [Troll in Training], or simply playing the role of victim, seek OPTIMISTIC and REALISTIC self-empowering and creative actions. Seek to do some of these things again and again until, after a matter of time and enduring, consistent effort, such proven quality actions become entrenched, programmed HABITS. Positive habits do require effort but once having become routine the hard lifting is, with the exception of relapse, done.
It is the recommendation of a certain book that I have read.
I have read a great number of books and articles and have listened to many awesome podcasts and other such things. However, if only due to its brevity and incredible incisiveness that appears universally accessible and applicable, I wish to advocate this one book.
I think this one book features KEY life-enriching truths, ones that have yielded almost by themselves as a seed various fruit to my life [and the fruit themselves many, many more additional seeds and additional fruit]. I really think this book may do the same for you.
And even if you do not wish to read it, then merely check out its FOUR SIMPLE SELF-APPLIABLE rules or “agreements” that can be exhumed on an online encyclopedia.
The name of this book: The Four Agreements.
So are you ready to TAKE BACK your power, decisions, your self-respect and LIFE?
Are you ready to TRULY defeat the Troll and go about developing the self-respect, the attitude, and also the competencies and courage necessary to live a life worth living, to live a life in which empowerment and solutions are more the focus and results as opposed to disempowerment, cynicism, victim mentality, and problems-galore?
If you’re ready, then get going. The ball is in your court, and you have many practices, drills, games, and seasons in which to reach for and attain glory…or even a level of mediocrity for which you can be content with—-it doesn’t have to be reaching for the stars; it just has to be ‘good enough’ for you!
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Do you have any objections, thoughts, concerns, or contributions? I REALLY WANT TO KNOW. Help me to make this a conversation!
Together we can map out better solutions and truly navigate clearer paths towards quality services, low prices, and better lives.
