“We are taught that in life, we should try to look on the bright side, to be optimistic. Not in this case. In this case, look on the dark side. Assume rejection first. Assume you’re the rule, not the exception. It’s intoxicatingly liberating.”
This is my life motto right here. Looking on the dark side of things in every area and facet of your life is truly freeing. You’re never disappointed, sad, angry, or upset.

The problem with the “truth” is that like all corrupt and twisted things in this world, it has a cancer. The world is sick, full of diseased minds, human nature, a mixture of bad with the good. Nothing is pure and healthy. The “truth” has a cancer that originates within itself. The purity of the Truth has been twisted, seasoned with lies, with agendas, with selfishness, and even good intentions.
I use to think that logic and reason were the pathways to Truth. Then I realized how quickly intellectual thinking turned men into rational creatures with no morality and an “end justifies the means” mentality. No compassion, no love. But feelings and emotions hold the same danger. Hearts are great in showing us our guilt, our conscience, and a kind of moral compass to lead us through life. But everyone’s heart is different. Feelings cannot be the foundation for Truth. Even good intentions can ignore the Truth, harboring lies as a means to a “good” end. Conviction and passion, although powerful, can be dangerous.
“For as long as I can remember, I just wanted to do what was right. I guess I’m not quite sure what that is anymore.”
– Steve Rogers (Captain America: Winter Soldier)
Alex Puccio is by far my favorite climber. Crushing it at Rock Master.
My favorite. Go Pooch!
