We all have that one friend that will do anything to get into the best class or the most money. Whether it is the latest sports drink or the most expensive pair of jeans, this type of person is the ultimate self-centered asshat. This is the same case with you. You’d think that you would be more aware of how you look, but it seems as though you barely notice.
So you think you want to look the way you think you want to look, but you aren’t really comfortable with it. You are actually afraid of what your body looks like.
The fact is that the media and advertising industry is a lot like the drug industry, in that it is full of people who do things because they are either threatened or desperate. They have no idea how to turn off their own impulses, so they take whatever action they can. As a result of this, they create an environment that causes people to act out, which is just the way it is.
If you are a fan of the action sports, which I am, then you are like a junkie who has lost the ability to control his urges. You can’t stop when you’re addicted to the thrill, but you can control when to go. You can start with a bang, but you can also end with a bang, and you don’t have to worry about being caught, or even worse, punished for your actions.
That is why action sports has become so popular. What other activity could you take your passion and turn it into a way of life? I imagine it must be a lot like being a junkie or an addict. You can take the passion you have for something and turn it into a hobby, but you must first be willing to take the risk and the chance that youll lose control and act out.
There is always the risk that you’ll go too far and youll end up hurting someone or something, but to be a part of action sports you need to be willing to act without thinking about consequences. You have to be willing to take the chance that youll hurt someone or something and take a hit to the head.
I’m not saying that it isn’t possible to be a junkie or an addict, but unfortunately it is very difficult to be a junkie or an addict and not have someone suffer for you. After all, you’ve done everything you can possibly think of to escape your destructive lifestyle.
Its a very tough thing to do, but many of us do it all the time. We get to live our lives without the consequences of what we did.
I was talking to a friend this morning about how it can be hard to know what you can and cannot do in your own life. For example, can you have a job and a social life, or can you not? If your life is one long job and one long social life, you are bound to end up with a lot of things that you can not do. But the idea that you could not have a job and not have a social life is a very, very small one.
My friend and I are both working in sales. We both had jobs, but I had a social life that went on for quite a bit. I was never able to have a job, and I did not have a social life. I guess that is a very small distinction, in my view.
