Welcome to my book of quotes, “Quote the World Forevermore.” You must be wondering, who is this guy? Well, I shall tell you. I’m just an ordinary guy with a passion for human psychology and relationships. I don’t have any fancy degrees or qualifications in Psychology. I haven’t even studied the subject, but I’ve had a deep fascination with it. Personal experiences and relationships sparked my interest in the matter. I grew up a shy, anxious kid who suffered from a few bouts of depression in my younger years. I spent many of those years reading body language and non-verbal cues as a way to survive and avoid disappointments as well as other negative emotions. This wasn’t successful as I was a very codependent individual, and being codependent attracted the other side of the coin.
These experiences led me on a journey for answers as I tried to figure out the hows and whys of my life and the world around me. Why did people react in the ways that they did? Why do we view each other the ways that we do? Why do we treat each other the ways that we do? Why are kind people so susceptible to manipulation and abuse, and why do people manipulate and abuse? There were so many questions, and I had to find the answers. I started reading books on Human Psychology. While taking in this knowledge, I was being schooled at the University of Hard Knocks. I was entangled in toxic relationships and unfulfilling jobs. The more I learned about human psychology, the less I knew of myself. During this period, I really dove into world events.
I observed how political parties and governments dealt with their populations and how the people responded. I saw the tribalism and how human beings behaved when trying to defend their tribes. I saw how gaslighting and manipulation were used to control society. Still, I didn’t see how it was used against me. It’s easy to see outside of your bubble, but within your own is cloudy and lacks visibility. Toxic relationships continued to erode my mental state until a friend changed my life by sending me a YouTube video. It was the first time in my life I learnt why I behaved the way I acted and the nature of narcissistic and toxic relationships. It was the knowledge that I needed at the right time.
From there, I went down the rabbit hole of information. I started watching more videos on the subject matter. I became deeply involved in Richard Grannon’s videos and general videos about human interactions and psychology. I read more books such as Joe Dispenza’s “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself” and Joe Navarro’s “Be Exceptional”. I listened intently to Akala speak and podcasts and debates with opposing views. I used this knowledge to fix the issues within myself and to understand why people behave the way they do. Before all of this, I just observed daily and came to many conclusions from what I observed. I would have many a deep conversation about my findings, but talking wasn’t enough. I needed to put my thoughts on paper. And that’s what they are. My thoughts through observation, watching videos and reading. There’s a lot more for me to learn and understand as knowledge does not stay the same. It evolves. It grows. It falters and comes back stronger. By the time I release this book, my thoughts on some subjects might have been refined. So, for now, enjoy my views as generated till this point.
Come read the thoughts and quotes that reside in the complicated mind of The Watcher. Come with me on a journey as I share my thoughts and feelings about the world around us and life itself. Observing this world and people has been a passion, and I hope to share that with you all.
