In the case of the lethal lifestyle, the problem was that the person’s life was being lived according to their expectations. They expected to live a good life, and they expected to be happy, so they didn’t think about the fact that they weren’t living up to those expectations or that they were spending some of their time and energy worrying about other people’s happiness.
I like the concept of the lethal lifestyle, so I was excited to read about Matt, and the theory that he was a “worrying person” who was living a non-linear life based on his expectations. But I found the actual article very unclear. It didn’t say what his expectations were, what he was doing, or what his life was like. The only hint of any of that came when he was told by his mother not to worry about him.
There’s no way to really know for sure what Matt expected to do with his life. We’ve seen a lot of people who are perfectly content, happy, and happy-go-lucky in their lives. Matt’s a lot like that, so he was expecting the death of his wife and kids to have a negative impact on his life.
Its possible that Matt is simply a nice guy who has a lot of friends and family, and is genuinely happy. Or maybe he is really, really bad at being a guy. My guess is that he expects to die in a very spectacular way, and as a result he is being very careful about his choice of friends and family. In any case, I hope that the article clears up the question of what he expects to do with his life.
I think Matt has a lot of expectations about how life should be lived, and he’s living the life he expects of himself. But I’m not sure that we can put any of those expectations into a box. If someone’s life is like Matt’s, they may not be able to live like that forever. And if they do, we need to figure out how to change that.
I think if the article says that we should all just be like Matts, then it’s a good idea. But what is it we should all be like Matts? A lot of people spend what amount to their entire lives doing the things that Matts does. Maybe they are not the coolest people in the room, but they’re not the worst. They are not the ones who make the biggest messes. And that is the part that is hard to explain.
This is where having a healthy dose of empathy comes in. When we are unable to empathize with people who do things that we would consider problematic, then we are never able to do that same thing ourselves. The one thing that these people do that Matts can never do is deal with the shit that comes from the outside world (or at least it could be that way).
The fact is that we are often unable to empathize with people because those people rarely do anything to harm us. They are not the ones who make the biggest messes. And that is the part we need to empathize with. Because our inability to do so is actually a sign of weakness. If we were capable of empathizing with people as we see fit, then it would not be so difficult to do the same to those who do harm to us.
When you look at someone, what you see is a form of representation. We are able to see ourselves in our own reflection in others. So when someone makes a bad decision or behaves in a way that is not appropriate, we can recognize and empathize with ourselves. To empathize with a person is to really see who they are underneath the facade we tend to project around ourselves.
One of the biggest things that makes us feel different from the rest of the human race is our ability to empathize. We tend to project our self-image of the average person we are onto others, and if you are a villain you have to learn to embrace who you really are. So instead of feeling as though you are a horrible person, you can accept the person you really are and learn to accept yourself.
