The life of a man is often going to be a lonely road. Often times it will be filled with struggle. The world may not make any sense. Social media says we should search for happiness. Fuck searching for happiness. This world does not care about you or your happiness. And you should not care about trying to obtain it. Instead, let it come through the fruits of your labor.
I took the Redpill over the course of 5 years since I moved to Alaska, but it never became an integral part of my life until the last two years. One thing I have learned in life is the struggle and pain that we suffer initially as young men (and honestly through the remainder of this life) is what forges us into steel. It is what makes you into the man that all redpillers desperately crave. Some may say, "Well you were born with good genes" or "you must have been a natural with a lot a masculine upbringing". Nope. Raised as bluepill as you can be. Good genes? Korean American adopted in a predominantly white farm town in the midwest. 5'5", barely 125 pounds ( I was the true definition of "skinny-fat" and pudge faced) when I was at my skinniest in my 20s, with zero identity (now 34 and 135 pounds of ultra lean, rock hard muscle formed thorough deadlifts, squats, bench, etc., and mountains/climbing). Never had a girlfriend until my thirties, struggled to keep friends because of my bluepill rage that was slowly building over the decades. Now, women come and I don't even need to try, and masculine male friends want to hang with you because they know you will bring positive things to their lives too. Yes, even you short guys who didn't win the "Chad" lottery can do it.
But I never regret a single day. All the times spent alone, I now know were times that shaped me into the man that I now am. Don't chase pussy, don't chase external validation, don't expect happiness from the world. Only you validate yourself. Work hard, self-improve as a man, embrace the hardships and struggles of life. Fuck social media and what the liberal elites tell you you should become. They don't care about you. They want you to be a victim. Don't be a victim. Only you care about yourself, and only you can TAKE care of yourself.
But what about women? This is what I have to say (and what I learned so well from the best posts on TRP): don't ever chase pussy. It is a waste of time and a waste of effort. You may score some lays and get lucky on occasion, but it distracts from the most important part of a man's life, self-improvement and hard work, and for many men still stuck under the spell of the bluepill, is just another form of validation seeking that will eventually crush you into oblivion if you let it get out of control. Cut that shit out. Ironically, everything you truly seek and strive for in life only comes when you take the path of resistance, including women. Women love TRULY confident, successful, and strong men, and they can sniff out the fakers and PUA's from a mile away. It is built into their genes for purposes of survival. Don't chase pussy, but instead embrace the struggle and always, ALWAYS stay thirsty. And they will love your confidence, rock solid frame, and they will follow you like the leader that you are. When they truly experience your rock solid masculine frame and they see your real, honest, confident smile and they see you oozing with strength, character, and virtue, they will follow. They will chase you because they have never experienced a man like you before.
Things all men should strive for, and things that truly helped me along the way:
This may sound weird, but cut out the bullshit processed food that you eat every day. It is lazy. It is mouth pleasure that shows you lack self-control. Plus it makes your body look like shit. Eat real food, and toss out the lucky charms. You aren't 12 any more living with mom. Cook for yourself. Grow your own food. Shoot an animal (legally) or go fishing. Take care of your body, because you only have one, and it is not indestructible.
Climb some mountains (literally OR figuratively). We are lucky in Alaska that we have the greatest wilderness in the world. It will spit you out and ruin you faster than you could imagine. Embrace that, go and climb mountains. Embrace the pain, struggle, and the true visceral fear, then overcome them. Make goals, and work towards the mountains you want to summit. Look down and feel pride, then start planning and goal setting for the next bigger mountain to dominate, the one that will crush you and destroy you unless you plan and self-improve (plus, if you really do it literally, it will give you that athletic body women can't stop thinking about).
As an addendum to number 2, lift/workout. It doesn't need to be classic lifting like you may think, however. Rock climbing, rock gyms, bouldering, rugby, or other physically and mentally demanding sports can also build the body women crave and it will build a mind of steel that can push through any obstacle with a sickening singular focus.
Embrace discomfort. When you are climbing that mountain (literally or just any obstacle in life) and your mind tells you to stop and that you can't keep going, fuck that shit. Tell those thoughts to fuck off and just keep climbing. Your body and mind will hate you in the moment, but that mental and physical fortitude will eventually reach a point where you actually enjoy the pain. We call it type 2 fun. Go out there and have some fun like real men do.
Meditation and/or Stoicism. Pretty self explanatory. If you don't know or want to read more, the internet is a wealth of information. Understand that the greatest quality in a real man, a real leader, is in unflappable mental fortitude in the midst of chaos, pain, and uncertainty that pushes the weak ones to failure. You are not a failure, and you are not weak. Meditation and stoicism are another tool in your belt as you seek self-improvement and mental strength and character.
Find interests and hobbies and master them. Put yourself out of your comfort zone. Think you can't do it? Well that is your mind telling you that you can't. One thing you will learn on your RedPill journey, and maybe one of the most important, is that once you drop bluepill behavior and beliefs that you are not good enough, suddenly your ability to learn and master things you never thought you could do becomes easy. Master one thing, then move in to another. Get comfortable? Well, start from scratch again and put yourself out of your comfort zone.
Always stay thirsty, and keep your mind focused on the goals that lie ahead.
