    Nah but frankie is prime example. Not everyone is an entrepreneur.

    The world needs the system. And it’s not everyones role to leave it. But if youre in it, you gotta make sure youre USING it not just being used. Are you in the best position you can be? Best company? Strong work/life balance? Enough time,money,resources to pursue whatever in life does make you happy? Are you still striving for more? Are you happy in your day to day life? You spend 70% of your life at work, mightaswell enjoy it right?

    IF you can say to all then you winning

  28. cOLD Says:

    Mental conflict that occurs when beliefs or assumptions are contradicted by new information. The concept was introduced by the psychologist Leon Festinger (1919 – 89) in the late 1950s. He and later researchers showed that, when confronted with challenging new information, most people seek to preserve their current understanding of the world by rejecting, explaining away, or avoiding the new information or by convincing themselves that no conflict really exists.

    ^ I think we got off to a wrong start sarjo. Somewhere you have it in you head that I condone mask fuckery. Maybe you came during mask gate when nahggars where jokingly accusing a few of mask rocking. This must’ve stuck with you cause to no end you’re constantly accusing the kid of masking up

    Now having said all that pls refrain from such remarks in the future. As I will likely take it as disrespect and be forced to defend my name. Thanks.

    When niggaz rock their “alter egos” niggaz still refer to them as there original name..nobody calls him absence of heat or me highsaigh or hood trill..they still say feces or cold or dusty..mask fuckery is some new nahgger shit the elder statesmen of nah don’t subscribe to mask fuckery..all alter egos aside.

    Alter egos are created to shake babymommas or a boss or maybe like me im (auto)signed in on 3 different comps and also my phone so on any given day i can be anyone not on purpose but just cause.

    masks are created to indulge in fuckery and fuckboi activities of the like.
