Thoughts on Helping Others
Recently, I read Cody's farewell speech to the PUA Community, and there were parts that got me thinking about his reasons for leaving. He did bring up some valid points about his decision of departing. He was young and already a natural in the game, and all he got were pointless questions about guys with oneitis issues.
Cody's reasons for not helping others was valid in his own views, and I respect that. He's experienced in the game, and he doesn't need to constantly re-affirm that to everyone he meets. However, I can't say the same for myself. I am not a natural, yet, and thus I need the constant re-affirming of what I believe is right and wrong.
I have discovered that the more that I address issues that I know and answer to, and I hammer them over and over again, I actually become strengthened in my beliefs. If I learn something new, I feel the need to find a post that relates to it and put a post on. If no such thread exists, I make one. If I have a question that I noticed has never been encountered or addressed before, that's when I ask.
So my skinny of this is the following: Help others to help yourself. That's what we're all here for.
