NOTES TO MYSELF

PSYCHOLOGICAL AGE

CLASS

[faint praise & encroachment] - The intentional infliction of emotional distress ... '''Actions that would humiliate, torment, threaten, intimidate, pressure, demean, frighten, outrage or injure a reasonable person are actions that can be said to injure an individual's dignitary interests and, if sufficiently severe, can give rise to causes of action in tort,' Ehrenreich writes." (New York Times Magazine, October 13, 2002) These people are trying to provoke you into shocking yourself, often by sabotage ... telling you one thing to conceal something else - They don't separate observations from abstractions - They want people to be dead little porkers - You're not supposed to talk about their observations, and you're simply expected to absorb their abstractions - They're not too smart, and you don't understand this when you're ten or fifteen - You have to apply the reverse of sabotage, that is, "Become your own secret friend."

"Hi! On the verbal abuse page, you added quite a lot of what appears to be either unsourced assertions or original research.

"According to the Canada Safety Council: A workplace bully subjects the target to unjustified criticism and trivial faultfinding.

—Yeah, sure.

—It's a lot better than sucking off Jesus ... That's it ... You're not going in the woods anymore ... It's as good an explanation as any ... It's easy to steal cars ... Watch out for people trying to take your attention ... It may just hang there like a low cloud ... There's no ceiling ... All they do is chew things up ... There's nothing fresh ...

REFLECTIONS

 
 
 
 
 

28-NOV-1999.

God's Gifts, Angling & Spilt Milk

I was exposed to little girls doing strip shows from the time I was five years old, a tough act to curb as an adult. In general, children are not self-critical, and the swift, kind way to stop a person from being "on the dog" is to hurt their feelings. For instance, one time a little girl danced across my path in a friend's kitchen singing, "I like to fuck!" for my ears alone.

—Yeah, sure.

—No way! I'm straight and you're ugly.

 

You really have to hurt their feelings. Another time a pretty little Black girl in the Mission District approached my taxi and asked, "Do you want to date?"

—Really determined.

—I don't know if you're ready for that.

 

Young people and hookers freely interchange "date," "party," and "copulate."

I guess people in general equate parties with a sexual rendezvous, on one level or another, so when someone you didn't invite asks, "What time is the party?" you really have to hurt their feelings.

—Just beginning.

—Don't come!

 

On the other hand, if another person hurts your feelings by brutally mistreating God's gifts, for instance, when a man takes off your shirt and says, "You've got small tits," simply say,

—Really determined.

—Love is something small.

GROWTH

People feel life is a tight corner
that's difficult to turn around in.

They're trained.

Advertising makes it worse.

The funny thing is,
if you like yourself
when you're doing anything,
then you can grow.
