Credit alex and tyler for a lot of whats in here
You should be indifferent to the rejection, judgement and negative reactions of other people.
If you aren't then you are allowing external influences to govern your selfworth and so you are living in reaction.
But you should also be brutally honest with yourself looking past pride and emotional bullshit and seeing if you accting in alingment with your values.

You are your own tribe
Only your opinion of yourself matters. You are internally validated and so you dont get embarrased. You set your own high standards and live up to them not the standards others have set for you and so you do not compare yourself to anything other than the standards you have set for yourself not the standards and achievements of others.

You are your own tribe
So you identify with yourself and not with others because you define your self. You move to the beat of your own drum dictating your own rhythm and moving to it rather than giving your power away to the rhtyhm of others. By  identifying yourself with yourself you are free to enjoy the comapany of a wide variety of others, you are able reinvent yourself easily.

You are your own tribe
So expect the world to give you fuck all. You are your own leader and as a man there is nothing that could be given to you that you cannot get for yourself. You revel in the process of getting what you want and then you bask in the glory and satisfaction of getting it.

You are your own tribe
You take full responsibility for everything and anything that happens to you. You take full responsibility for your life.

You are your own tribe
You are proud of yourself and so you remove your social mask and express yourself freely, celebrating who you are through what you do.

You are your own tribe
You live in the now and focus on it but you are still able to appreciate your past and take valuable lessons from it. You have a path to lead you to the future, your glorious destination, your excited about it but you enjoy walking the path as much or even more than you will your destination. You do not ever allow past success to dictate your self worth because you enjoy the challenge of proving it time and time again, while at the same time you are not upset if you fail.

Arousal begets arousal.

Owen Cook: "Everyone told me I couldn't master the game, they said I couldn't build RSD, they said I couldn't do all sorts of shit. Those were their limitations, not mine. I don't have limitations because I choose to focus on what's possible, not on what supposedly can't be done...Ultimately to be the best you have to be hungrier, more focused, willing to die for the shit. I'm willing to go to that length because I'm disgusted by the experience I had in my first two decades of life and can't stand other people not having a rope to pull themselves up. I've been given more blessings than I ever asked for or deserved and have no reservations to go to any length to cultivate and offer the gifts I feel forming within myself on a daily basis in return for that."

Augustine of Hippo: “Resentment is like taking poison and hoping the other person dies.”

Michael Jordan: "I know what is within me even if you can't see it yet...I have something more important that courage. I have patience. I will become what I know I am."

I wear my heart on my dick.

Everything is internal.

 Makes sense. It's called individuality.

 Did not read. But when I saw the "You are your own tribe" begining at every paragraph, I already know it's going to be the shit.
