Rant/VentingThe Most Simple Red Pill Truth I've Finally Understood (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by noufris

Summary A simple yet obvious truth in order to fully understand the red pill and what life is all about.

Body I used to be addicted to TRP. I've beta backslided. I've re-read books, and red pill material, and gone backwards and forwards.

I've noticed whether you are "Red Pill" or not, there is one fundamental truth that is more important then anything else.

I apologize if this is obvious to all novices, and so on. But I just want to make it clear to the others who read this sub like me. I'm a 29 year old guy FYI.

The best version of yourself = A better life

Now this sounds cliche, but I mean this. If you decide to become the best version of you, I swear to god life becomes easier, smoother, more fun, and more manageable.

We get so distracted by so much, including the internet, and this sub to realize its all about becoming the best version of YOU. Its not about shaming women, or eachother for the way that they are. But merely being the best version and man you can be.

Now ok, I'll try break it down even simpler:

If you're fitter, smarter, wiser, calmer, healthier, a snappier dresser, have a better car, more independent, wealthier, etc etc I guarantee you'll live a better life.

I honestly understand that this sub can be addictive. But I've only signed up to reddit recently, but watched from afar for over 2 years.

Its no coincidence my girlfriend is responding to me much better being calmer, and cooler then being too aggressive and being an average frustrated chump.

Its no coincidence when I really train harder in the gym, I stand taller, I look and feel better. Same goes with diet. The cleaner I eat (majority of the time) the better I feel.

Same goes for work. I was lucky to have mentors like my uncles who have become huge successes with wise investments, that without thinking it I'm going down the same route. Whereas my father in his late 50s still works his ass for to only make ends meat, has aged worse, put on a tonne of weight, and is evidently far from happy at all.

One of my biggest faults is comparing myself to everyone. When I was a virgin, I used to always used to think who else was and wasnt. When I was unemployed, I always compared. Etc etc etc. Second I stopped doing that, I realized I'm never going to look like Brad Pitt. Or whoever is an adonis of a man. But if i become the best version of me. I'll be happy. Because I'd rather be the best me, then the best imitator of someone else.

We are never told that. Self help is seen as a joke subject. In fact my "beta" brother thinks self help and self improvement is a joke. He cries whilst putting on a tonne of weight, dating a 3/10 chick fatter then him, and quitting his high paying job for half his salary to be a teacher. Because its a "safe job."

Regardless, its just about being the best version of yourself. Think about it, is the best version of yourself constantly shaming feminists, fat people, etc etc? No. The best version is so focused on their own goals and life that they accept thats the way women and people are. Gone are the days I help people who can't help themselves.

It's like a revelation for me, to realize that reading less TRP, spending less time wasting your life, and ultimately getting angry, sad and frustrated over the most mundane things is more toxic then cigarrettes and alcohol.

I just want to go back to the "best version." The best version doesn't mean a walkover. A best version of a man is assertive. I may be calmer with my gf but I take no shit. We fuck all the time, we do pretty much whatever I want in terms of going out, and shes caring and good to me. However when she winds me up, I just laugh as I know that doing opposite will only be the worst thing to do. And I don't wish to be the worst, I wish to be the best.

I still have so long to go. Financial freedom, my ideal weight/body, and various other bucket lists and travelling goals I have are all things I cannot wait to achieve. The best doesnt happen overnight. But educate yourself not just in the red pill, and fitness etc but how to become the best version of yourself.

Study or work harder, focus on your health, read more, fucking smile! Youre alive! Life is good. Stop hating on things that really don't matter.

I swear to you, becoming the best version of yourself will earn you more love, respect, pussy, money then you'll ever get doing anything else.

Great post. It seems like half of the content here consists of bitching about women and Muslims. Thanks for posting something useful that someone can use to better themselves.

[–]noufris[S] 66 points67 points  (5 children)

Thank you.

This community has grown massively. Its very easy to go watch the new ghostbusters for example, and tear it to shreds.

But why not try to enjoy it? I went with my gf, she paid. She sucked my dick after. Film was crap, I laughed a few times, but who cares seriously.

Isn't there more to life then to constantly go on about these issues, and why not address your own problems, and tackle them.

[–][deleted] 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Why not both? Lol. I think it's perfectly fine to bitch online about blatantly retarded shit like a woman-washed ghostbusters film. Just don't let it personally bother you or interfere with your IRL goals and relationships and you're good.

[–]SoulRedemption 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I agree with this. You should be able to kick the shit out of things you don't like and express your opinion of things that may not matter too much. But need to take care that the opinions of these things actually "do not matter" too much or at all. Otherwise, it becomes a negative though, a seed, which will grow within, causing resentment and roots growing deep and to other similar seeds, ultimately creating a forest of negativity which you may only notice once fully grown.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This. People who make fun of women and bitch about Islam online may be perfectly happy and content with themselves. But even people with fit bodies and great jobs have to entertain themselves during a boring work day.

[–][deleted] 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Posts about women in a men's sexual strategy sub? You don't say

[–]juliusstreicher 7 points8 points  (9 children)

bitching about women and Muslims.

I'm not sure why it seems that way to you...are you talking about the trp sub???

[–]SoulRedemption 0 points1 point  (8 children)

I haven't seen this sub bitch about Muslims at all, at least not in the posts I've read. Maybe there's a different agenda for saying this?..

[–]Ubernaut84 10 points11 points  (5 children)

I have seen quite a bit of very right-wing talk on several pieces on TRP in the comment fields. This is plausible. Men on the right are very fearful that a bunch of poor immigrants will rape "their" women. Beta mate-guarding on a national level.

[–]RedPillHanSolo 1 point2 points  (3 children)

This is not mate-guarding. It's a process of getting our balls back (c) as straight white males, which is much more than "mate-guarding" because of how BP-media wants to shame us from being entitled to what is truthfully ours. No other race except white is that meek, they too "mate-guard" as you put it.

[–]Ubernaut84 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Not buying it. This is entitlement mentality. You're promoting an us-versus-them mindset when the reality is it's only you versus every-other-dude. Further bullshit is the belief that white men are meeker than others. That is just not so.

[–]RedPillHanSolo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The context is king. If we're talking about normal things like interracial couples, I personally doubt most people labeled "racist" on TRP give a fuck. It's exactly "you versus every-other-dude", I agree.

It's somewhat different, when you look at Germany. When there are foreigners with a mindset of complete entitlement coming to your country and claiming ownership of women of your creed and you just stand there still spouting "refugees are welcome" this is beta behavior. I can't imagine any arab/muslim/black person acting like a white cuck like your average "progressive leftist" white male does, when the situation is reversed.

[–]Ubernaut84 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think this is worth worrying about, tbh. I am confident that I stand head-and-shoulders above some destitute third-world immigrant in terms of SMV, as should you. I am not interested in trying to change the social climate in America just so more white guys can get laid. That's their problem if they can't hack it. It is not a RP man's responsibility to fix society so more men (RP or BP) can get laid. It's your responsibility to yourself (ourselves) to take the conditions we're given and thrive in them. Law of the Jungle. The moment you try doing something to change things for other men in America, you become a SJW yourself... just on the other side of the battlefield.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Great perspective about the mate-guarding!

[–]juliusstreicher 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's my suspicion as well.

[–]sdrahmath 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Muslims? I didn't get it please elaborate.

[–]Senior Endorsed Contributormax_peenor 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Race/nationality baiting. Ignore.

[–]nu94 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol who complains about Muslims here?

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Best part is, once you get there, you'll never be happy otherwise. Now that's a negative if you're an emotional pussy without the ability to turn sadness and ineptitude into motivation, but if you aren't, it will serve as a fan to the flames of "drive" so to speak, and you'll be motivated to make a change and prevent yourself from ever reaching rock bottom again.

[–]fullyopen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or, one can see bettering themselves as a lifetime process, which again to the emotional pussy will seem like an impossible and never ending task, but for a man of action and vision, can successfully embrace towards a life of fulfillment on every end.

[–]IveRedditAllNight 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This is some real shit. I came to the exact same realization a few weeks ago. It's refreshing to read that someone else sees it like me.

If you're your best self no one can fuck with you. Because if you're not mentally ill your potential to be the best self is limitless. There's no reason why not. You make your own reality and it's your world.

Great post, champ!

[–]cockatricejr 15 points16 points  (3 children)

This is completely true. Foster good habits, good hobbies, dress well, take care of yourself and you immediately become attractive, energetic, assertive. Simply because you will fall in love with yourself too.

Also, my life improved a lot when I decided to stop being a pussy and spend some money on myself. If you're young and have a shitty job, you at least have time. Use that time to go to the gym and get lean and strong. If you're like me and you lack motivation but has a stable career, use money in your favor. Hire a personal trainer and let him help you achieve your goals.

[–]noufris[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Saving money is a waste of time.

Save a little, but don't save a lot. I have assets that earn me a salary thats basic now. But in 10-20 years time will serve me much more god willing. Its about patience.

Now don't go overdrawn, dont live beyond your means but spend money.

I dont get the people who work till their 65 and have a lot of money saved but they are too old to do shit with. They have a ferarri and if theyre single noone will fuck them, and they cant fuck properly.

I say go on that expensive holiday, buy that car, eat out at that restaurant, go clubbing. Save 10%, invest in assets eg properties etc and LIVE.

[–]elevul 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To be fair, though, if you can actually save enough money to retire at 40, well, why not? There are multiple subreddits on reddit dedicated to it and plenty of people who have reached happiness from the fact that they now don't have to care about external conditions anymore. Whatever happens, they are covered. And nothing boosts confidence more than the fact that you're totally and utterly safe regardless of external conditions.

[–]elevul 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Also, steroids. If you have the money, a test-e cruise will greatly improve your gym gains and GREATLY improve your mental stability, motivation and drive.

[–]Endorsed Contributorex_addict_bro 7 points8 points  (0 children)

But if i become the best version of me. I'll be happy. Because I'd rather be the best me, then the best imitator of someone else.

Beautifully worded. You got it.

[–]BetterBadIdeas 7 points8 points  (2 children)

It makes sense. Men are meant to do shit. Even if you like sitting around gaming and watching Netflix (as we all do from time to time) and going out and achieving something with that time is a lot of hard work, which you don't enjoy, you're life is greater than the sum of its parts and you will find you're happier trading some fun for some hard work.

[–]noufris[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Men get on with shit.

A woman will say "I'm fat" and do nothing about it. Whereas a man that wants to be his best works his ass off for weeks to get fit.

My gf thinks shes fat. I no longer try to motivate her. Instead I work my ass off in gym to become fitter and better.

Whats gna get through to her more? Her feeling/looking slightly podgy in the bikini on the beach on our vacation next to me looking ripped? Or moaning at her every day.

Regardless of women, its people in general. I assure you, just improving yourself will encourage jealousy from the haters, admiration from the love ones, and inspiration for the lost and confused ones

Man that shit is beautiful dog !!!!!!!

[–]EatmyShorts59 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Legit.

I'm still in the early stages, but I pray I'm on the right path.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yep, at the end of the day only YOU are there for YOU so you should make YOU amazing as fuck.

[–]SoulRedemption 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is a great post. This sort of tapped onto an area in my brain, where this information already existed, but was never highlighted and brought forward. Mistakes that are made is, it might be an epiphany of sort, but if not taken a step towards what is being said in this post, more likely one will slide back into the original mentality. This probably goes for everything in terms of achieving goals. Thanks for the post.

[–]net_ripper 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you decide to become the best version of you, I swear to god life becomes easier, smoother, more fun, and more manageable.

I haven't read the entire post and I plan on doing so but I somewhat disagree with what you say here. I wouldn't go as to say "Life becomes easier, smoother". That probably may never happen. Think back to what NMMNG preached. Nice guys want an easy, problem free life which is why they do "the right thing" over and over hoping life gets easier. This post is following along that path by saying the above quote.

I'm not saying that the possibility of this is 0%. What I'm saying is, don't take this advice as "if I try to be better, everything will be good, live will be easy, and smooth sailing" because that could very well not happen, no matter how much you improve yourself. Instead, become a better version of yourself because you want to. Become a better version of yourself to have more control of your body, mind, emotions, who your are, self, everything about you. Become a better version of yourself so that the reactions of others would mean nothing to you, unexpected events will never phase you, outcome of situations wont affect you or your mood. Understand that you cant control life and its chaotic chain of events. What you can control though, is yourself.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I realized that the only thing that I value from the past is what I have now. So the most worthwhile option is investing time.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

nice dude, now go out and get that plow that asshole!

and make sure to cup the balls!! We love that

[–]taracus 1 point2 points  (7 children)

Im not disagreeing with your post, but there is nothing in it that cant be found by clicking the "Introduction" link in the sidebar (which everyone are told to read before posting).

Second paragraph:

Men, our happiness is our responsibility. Culture has always shifted, it's dynamic and fluid. It has never and will never stay still.

Maybe if more people actually followed the simple advice of "Read the sidebar before posting", people like you and others would not have to re-post information that we assume anyone who are on this subreddit already knew.

EDIT: Trivia, the introduction was posted 3 years ago with the title "Wow almost a hundred subscribers, welcome", funny how there are 160k subscribers today, well done mods and authors, that's some might fine work.

[–]recon_johnny 8 points9 points  (2 children)

To be honest, we could all say read the sidebar for every post here. And then there'd be no discussion.

Reading text is one thing, having someone else list their example is another--reading how it presents in his life, what his connection to the concept/principle, what his experience is...is all very helpful. It's like trying to teach someone something and having to come up with different ways to explain it makes you understand the subject better.

And also, it's easy to forget/gloss over pieces. These nuggets bring out different things for me to remember and act on, even if I don't completely agree with the OP.

[–]taracus 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I understand what you are saying, I guess I am bit tired of reading the same shit over and over again, my own fault for spending too much time here I guess...

[–]juliusstreicher 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm with you. I read it, and it seemed that the OP was saying "Hey, guys, if you start living for yourself, you'll be happier", which isn't even a new twist on the old memes we celebrate. He does seem to offer the old standby "hey, don't be a loaf and stay on TRP all day...do something", which isn't new either, and a bit of an insult, intimating that just by being here we're all a bunch of fat neckbeard wannabes, unlike him. I kept waiting for something, which never materialized. Overall, a disappointing thread.

[–]noufris[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

You are completely right.

However, I'm not talking just about happiness.

I'm talking about being the best YOU.

[–]recon_johnny 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hear you man. Folks here will relate what you say with a red filter, and that's to be expected.

Most people just wander through life getting things, and wonder why they aren't fulfilled or happy.

[–]taracus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because of the necessity to have good game, we must define what good game is. A large portion of Red Pill discussion revolves around evolutionary psychology. Understanding the facets of this psychology are key to developing a good sexual strategy. Because this strategy is useful not only in gaining the attention of the opposite sex, but continuing relationships, having children, and maximizing your own happiness throughout life, I'm going to argue that defining the strategy outside of just "good game" is an important facet of Red Pill Discussion.

If you read a little more of the introduction...

[–]talcobh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

this. people find it hard to separate immediate happiness from long-term happiness, I consider working hard to better myself as an investment for my future happiness-- when you become a badass that can handle whatever comes your way, be it financial or personal or emotional troubles and come out better for it, happiness will be infinite, but if you instead pursue instant happiness instead of cultivating your best self that happiness will never come

[–]homelessWOOKIE9 0 points1 point  (0 children)

TRP is a cheat code to life. So happy I found it

[–]hesalop 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]get_unoffended 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you for this post brother. I agree wholeheartedly.

[–]Luckyluke23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

catalyst bars did say - "I'd rather be a don than adonis "

I swear to you, becoming the best version of yourself will earn you more love, respect, pussy, money then you'll ever get doing anything else.

this is the best advice you can receive and give anyone! sure I got nothing now, but in the future everything is come together and I will be a boss i can tell you that.

[–]slay_it_forward 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You get self-respect by being true to your values and taking right action. Right action is taking care of your body and mind, abstaining from vices, contributing to the world, having courage to talk to women, to take personal and professional risks, treat people with respect, no comparimg and judging.

Much easier said than done.

[–]elevul 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you. And yes, the last stage of the TRP, the one everyone should achieve, is acceptance of the truth while maintaining the motivation to pursue their own goals. You have become a solid rock, and women can't help but latch unto you in their desperate search for stability.

I notice you put love and pussy in front of money means you still dont get it seems like you are still seeking validation from women it doesnt matter what type version or model you are, attraction, female nature and hypergamy gives 2 cents about it because she will cheat or get bored sooner or later the only safegaurd you have is be prepared to exit with a good frame of mind and have other options on deck all the time, women will never love you for anything its just nature bro.
