                            I fear betrayal more than anything. It has torn me apart so many times, and I hate it. I have trouble with romantic relationships because of my paranoia of being betrayed. People tell me I'm really really nice, but I don't think I am. It's just me trying to make sure no one would want to betray me...
                            Jordan always makes me think about these things, and I'm more thoughtful and critical than before.

                                                I’m about to say some stuff

                                                I’ve had this problem while I was living with my stepbrother who is 40 years old. I was 17 when his mom moved out of the house and so I was living with him alone. I know what your thinking why did your mother move out and leave you with him? Because she said we were both grown and we can be roommates until I moved out. So I was left with a psychotic druggy step brother who fought with me everyday. Telling me things like “why do you cut me out of my own family?” When I spend the night with his sister(my cousin) or if I seem happy around the family but don’t seem happy when I am alone with him. I would stay in my room 24/7 watching Jordan Peterson and some preachers unless I wanted to go walking or go to the store. I would try to be nice and polite using the cues I learned from Jordan but the conversations only turned into arguments if a phrase I said hit any of his nerves. When we had these fights his mother took his side about everything. As if there was a side to take?!? I didn’t honestly care(yes I did because I was 17-19 and I felt like these I shouldn’t have to argue with a grown man everyday because I hurt his feelings), I was tired of hearing “if you wouldn’t instigate it he wouldn’t have a reason to be that way”
                                                There’s a lot of backstory to this but it’s too much to put on as a YouTube comment. To sum it up, after years of his and his mother’s manipulation and mental torment, and at 19, I moved 3000 miles away from both of them and I am working hard to be the best I can be.

                                                    Maybe because they can tell you're trying to leverage their paranoia?

                                                  I'm sorry, but, if a crackhead (crack being probably the biggest cause of paranoia in urban areas) confronts you you should never admit you're afraid.

                                                  Project calm and remain non-confrontational. If you're asking someone to leave (for instance), simply repeat yourself respectfully over and over until they do so (if someone can't get a rise out of you or get something to go off of there is a far smaller chance of escalation).

                                                  Admitting you're scared is something most crackheads will immediately hinge off of and attack you over because it implies that they're aberrant or scary. Your best option is to simply make yourself not seem worth their time or that the effort they're investing won't have any meaningful payout.

                                                  This is basic security training for people who have to deal with paranoid and violent junkies *all the time.*

                                                            Very interesting, about betrayal.

                                                            I think of betrayal at the base of any wrongdoing, any unworth-doing is the manifestation of it, this can take place towards an other or towards oneself.

                                                            The nine crowns of hell of Dante are, as the speaker puts it, a heavily influenced point of view but it is also the observations of a conscious, mindful human being.

                                                            For me, it represents the awakening of conscience that gives the will to the observer, understanding the pain of betrayal and ultimately, empathy and avoidance.

                                                              This is actually how I managed to talk my way out of a fight.

                                                              Six girls had me cornered in a bathroom. The ‘leader’ recognised me as the supervisor at the supermarket that wouldn’t sell her alcohol without ID a month earlier, she had screamed at the time she would destroy me if she ever saw me on the street, while she was being removed from the store.

                                                              I’m out on the town with my friends, I’m in the bathroom washing my hands at about 3am, when I hear “oi it’s that bitch!” .. I think oo that doesn’t sound good, I turn around and there they all are with fists clenched. Her mates all jumping up and down excited asking who I was and what had I done.. I told her ya know I’m sorry but I have to be bound to the rules of my job etc..

                                                              She was sooo freaking angry and pumped up, like she almost didn’t care who she was going to fight that night, but I said my piece, a mate of hers told her they should let me go, she eyeballed me, then left.

                                                                I guess that this is just for the ordinary person.

                                                                Politicians, businessmen all lie with impunity and are rewarded for it (current US President for example). Different rules apply to them.

                                                                What about the way we lie to ourselves? Some lies are beneficial for others to believe and we get co-opted into believing the lies told about us.
