          You don't have to. Just have a safe place to hide it. I live with respectful people now so I can leave it in the open and no one touches it. You're probably only anal about your privacy because someone disrespected your need. When you find good trustworthy people that problem reduces a lot.

    If you’re skinny, always think of squats as a core exercise in order to avoid snap city. Let your core strength limit what you lift, don’t start lifting more with only your legs.

    Younger self, pls listen to me.
    Don't stop to do IST stuff. It's was a big part of ur life and it always will be. Take care of ur diet. And make yourself no. 1. Other people doesn't deserve to be your no. 1. No one.
    Stop thinking too much and just do it. I know, I know, it's stressful. It's no fun. But it's worth it. As long as you're in the flow everything flows. Don't let the flow go, younger self. Make mistakes and don't worry if you fall down. That's learning, younger self. Rough times make you stronger.
    You are struggling with yourself but that's okay. Try to figure out what benefits you. Learn about yourself. Being a masking autistic hooman isn't easy. Be brave. Don't clinc to much to the past. It's gone. You can reinvet yourself every day, younger self. It's never too late. And people doesn't have to like you. It's okay. You're a strong lone wolf. You can make it. I'm always there for you. I love you like nobody else loves you,
    your older self.

    Your body is the one thing you carry with you for life, so don't fuck it up. Nothing you think is important right now is more important than being in shape. Nothing.

    Stop eating processed sugars, stop drinking energy drinks, stop drinking soda, quit caffeine completely, stop eating out or getting food delivered, stop eating onions and sneed oils.

    Literally just don't eat shit and do 20mins of exercise a few times a week. It's THAT fucking easy. NO EXCUSES YOU FAT FUCK.

      Do the opposite. Don't go live in the shitty city for 10 years. You will hate it a year in after the novelty wears off and you grow up. Live at home as long as you possibly can and just save up your money. Also, just marry your girlfriend. She's fine. I know she's annoying but all women are annoying to live with, it doesn't get better. At least she doesn't mind that you don't even have your own place.

    I'm 36yo, going through an ADHD diagnosis. Super intelligent so did my MSc etc. along the way but always felt like I live in a different reality.

    So I would give three advice to my younger self:
    1. you might not be what they call normal, figure it out and you will probably handle things better
    2. money is the most important thing in practice; even if it doesn't mean much to me personally, it's the thing that enables things and especially...
    3. women. Don't wait for a good one, fuck drunken sluts and abuse them. When you have money, women will come, even perhaps that somewhat nice one. All other ways are just a cope or a fluke nowadays.

    Start lifting weights at 14. Play football in hs. Get experience with girls before 17 (if you’re a kissless virgin at 18, life is harder). Decide on a career path early (try to join family business if possible). Don’t get addicted to porn. Enjoy your youth & recognize that it is ephemeral.

    For me it’s making sure to establish social skills early if you can. I have turned 30 and I’m a complete and utter loser you couldn’t even imagine. Pretty much all of my issues can be directly tied to becoming a socially isolated autist when I got into high school.

    This place likes to talk about Ted kaczynski and I see a lot of younger people sayin they like to be alone, everyone is stupid, you think you’re better than everyone else, etc, you will realize that you ruined your life.

    There are plenty of people who don’t have much but if they have friends/family/relationship they will be happy. Very few to no people even if you have money (all anyone here cares about) or other “accomplishments” will still be miserable if you have no social engagements.

    Don't help anybody, don't offer any advice to anyone ever. If you see someone struggling, ignore them. The suffering of others is not your business. All advice is dogshit and the very concept of advice should never have been created. You should in no way pass any knowledge or wisdom onto others; be sure to hoard everything your experiences have taught you.

    stop trying to make your food taste better, eat for fuel. Eat high protein foods for satiation, stick to whole foods. Trying to make food tasty is where things go wrong.

    Don't stop working out and eating trash, I feel so much better since I got back into working out, feels stupid to have stopped, my lowest lows are never that bad, my confidence is way up. Just do a 5 min minimalist routine, 1 set of pushups, chinups, squats every other day if you have to. Running helps a lot with mood, happiness and confidence.

      this is a good one
      Seeing food purely as fuel and not something that's supposed to be pleasurable is a good thing. Seriously if you're eating junk food regularly you are not going to make it. No one is getting fat off of nice meals; it's always the worst of the worst goyslop shit. Literally just don't be poor.

    Generally follow your gut instincts and don't overindulge your need to research both sides and play devils advocate. Your instincts lead to correct or better outcomes in nearly all cases and time is not on your side. You can waste years looking into stuff and eventually come to your initial conclusions.
    Marry your girlfriend and have kids ASAP. It's an advantage that she loves you more than you love her. Love is mostly a psyop anyway and you'll find your dedication to each other and how well you match up in values is much more important than romance.
    Don't feel embarrassed or feel like it's below you to network and make use of nepotism. You will have a much harder time in your career if you don't let people help you, even if they're not doing it based on merit.
    Eat better. You already know that carbs are bad. Don't listen to your normie nutritionist friend and parents or delve into too much research. Just practice low carb ASAP. It's the only thing that will make you lose weight. The only way you can save your parents from diabetes is by setting an example. They will not listen to reason or evidence.
    Literally any workout routine will benefit you. No perfect plan exists and you're just using looking into one as an excuse to be lazy.
    In general, do things as soon as your gut tells you to. Don't be lazy or find an excuse to not follow your instincts.
