  1. SELF-WORTH VAMPIRES

    …are very important to understand. Perhaps you have encountered them, sucking you down. They have a variety of feeding methods:

    1. Feigned confusion at the method by which you’ve done something that works stellar, except “Hmm…I would’ve done it differently.”

    This one works because it’s subjective and therefore hard to argue with. It’s an implicit assertion of superiority.

    2. Identifying and preying upon vulnerabilities

    They’re super good at spotting the openings in your worth ribs and poking you right there. This one is a str8 up dick move.

    3. Comparing themselves to you in terms of their strengths, but never their weaknesses. By uniformly casting aside the importance of arenas in which they’re weak, they effectively erase their weaknesses while reinforcing the total validity of their world view.

    Basically, it boils down to a steady stream of small criticisms designed to tear at your self-worth. Finding and pointing out your small imperfections makes them feel bigger and better.

    There are two weapons against self-worth vampires:

    1. Remember that you do not leave your self-worth lying out where any old comment can kick it. Your self-worth is tucked away in a vault in that Harry Potter bank run by magic and goblins. Your self-worth is stored with Jay and Bey’s jewelry. It’s encrypted like Hillary’s phone. SHIT IS SECURE.

    2. KILL ‘EM WITH KINDNESS

    This one is hard to do, especially if you’re dealing with these bloodsuckers daily. But think of it this way: self-worth vampires WANT to make you feel bad.

    When they see you down, bruised, snippy, defensive, passive aggressive, whatever—that affirms their success. That’s how they know they won. That’s when they feel full.

    Do not feed the vampires! KILL ‘EM WITH KINDNESS. Watch them become befuddled, then wither away like your good shit is so much garlic.

  7. GREAT NEWS!!

    The middle finger seeds I planted in your front plot in February have shot up beautifully! Step out, see dirt do my bidding. Step out, see me sending you back. Step out, savor that nature. Press your pasty face against what’s wild. Take a whiff and slouch away.
