Nillabasco E.H. : 9,000 a year?? More like 20 thousand a year in the states.

Alessy Panda : i agree with this idea, all points. one thing appart, i do wish the editor/writer hadnt written in "orgy sex" . it could possibly send the message of no means yes. sorry but had to mention. i think a better example would have been anything else. but still, all the points were right on and i appreciate these videos completely

Shannen Canton : I can so relate to the girl talking about how disgusting orgies are holy shit I have to stop myself

Pree Dem : SIMPLIFY YOUR FUCKING WORDING. Apart from that you are an amazing channel.

csenge varkonyi : I always say I love being single, maybe I secretly desire to be in a relationship

Magnus Error : Im glad that I was born not really having many problems. I dont as far as I can tell lie to myself with this sort of stuff. My friend is the same.

TrustZ : I love this video. But, I have one flaw with it. As I do love to hear the truth of our flaws, I also appreciate knowing how to fix them. After all, this is the "school" of life.

Lukas Oberfrank : As always, great video. Especially in this one, I think the chosen piece of music fits perfectly.

John Martin : What if the people who made this video were lying to themselves? And in pretending to help other people were merely setting out to prove themselves superior to their victims.

Sean Burton : This has been the most relevant, beautiful and brutally honest thing I've seen to date.

CobaltLobo : I respect how they show that pornography is a real problem. it's a huge thing so many people are addicted to and some people don't even feel shame anymore cause they've lied to themselves and others have lied to them for so long making them think​ it's acceptable. it's a shame that porn is a thing, I appreciate them showing that it's not something to take lightly and really effects people's lives in many ways

Stuart : I know this will sound arrogant, but I see a lot of these traits in the people I hang around with and not in myself. I couldn't really find much to relate to in this video other than the fact it was a hell of an awkward gathering lol

Lexie Liben : When you think you are going to watch an educational video but then 30 seconds in there are porn sounds and you gotta very quickly lower your sound lmao

Fernando Romera : These theatrical performances are my favourite content in the channel.


Lua Veli : 1. My mother loves to talk about her prison days in Mecca! I am so sorry that she ended up in jail back then, but frankly, it was all her fault. But there is something very charming and interesting about the way she denies it. Of course, the lies we tell ourselves are always more beautiful than the reality they replace. So my mother doesn't obey any rules she herself hadn't set. That's why on that journey she didn't care that her visa was expired. She wanted to stay longer , so she did. One day she got assaulted by two thieves. Then the police came and the thieves accused my mother of being the thief! She doesn't speak Arabic, so she couldn't defend herself. She didn't even had her passport with her so they took her to jail. Imagine to be locked up in a foreign country where you don't know anybody! Besides, she had no idea how long she was going to stay there. But she was convinced that it was all organised by God, for her to have the experience, to meet the people there, to suffer, to endure and to prove her faith to Him no matter what disasters life brings. Some days later a man from the Turkish embassy visited her in prison. She explained to him that she was innocent. And when he asked her how she was doing she said: " I am very fine. I am observing the people here." Two weeks later she got out, escorted by the police to the airport and sent back home to Turkey. Imagine how humiliating all this can be, for a woman in her sixties.. But she went through all that like the hero of a drama extra written for her by God. Unfortunately I am not a believer, but I do envy all the possibilities of consolation, that the believers have. My mother will never have to ask: " Why me ?". Instead she will firmly say: " Precisely me" , because God wanted it for me. Oh and in my case, I could only say: " Why NOT me ? Anything can happen to me anytime....And as Seneca says: A ship may also sink at the port...." Well, indeed, if it doesn't hurt anybody, sometimes, it may be alright to avoid the truth. I would never recommend my mother my approach. If a person successfully deludes herself, and you have nothing better to offer her instead, you may also let that be. Of course on this channel there is a great lesson on this subject too: " Can lying ever be kind" In some strange cases like my mother's, this may even apply to the lies we tell ourselves... 2. And here is the joke I love the most on this subject: " So there is this guy who suspects that his wife cheats on him. He hires a private detective to find out what's going on. After one week of a business trip he comes back and asks to the detective: - So what have you seen? - Sir, the first day when you were gone, your wife met this very handsome young man. And then they went to a fancy restaurant. After that they went to see a movie. After the movie, late at night, they went to your place , right to your bedroom. Then they hugged each other. - And then ?? - Then they closed the curtains. So the husband says: - God damn it! You pay a fortune to a private detective and even then, you can't be absolutely sure!! 3. The best cure for this is Alain de Botton's "Philosophical Meditation". You must watch the video they have made about it. Sorry that this comment got out of control and became too long :- ) Thank you for this very valuable lesson!

Elynnewith2N : damn it, it's been a long time frankly said, but this is brilliant

Elizabeth Isabelle : 5:07 i am that guy

Aalap D : This is the worst dinner party in all of history.

Geoff Bournes : Yeah.. I see it in people especially the defense part. It does take ove the ENTIRE space in the conversation. I just leave people to learn and SEE just like I have to. I stopped lying to MYSELF a WHILE ago. I love change too much for that. People REALLY don't want to HEAR the truth anyway even when they say they do

Bache : Your most important video yet..., imo. And I'm a big fan who finds alot of the work produced here critical.

Fasdaff : I agree with that guy at the end. There's nothing more important to me than space in my apartment. That's why I prefer 2D women; the only space they take up is on my hard drive.

Alvaroeduardo : I needed this. Thanks

honifit : Very helpful and insightful. I'm always trying to learn about myself, I do lie to myself but I usually end up at some point facing my truth.

Eli Urns : people who do all of this probably hit the dislike buttonXDDD

Akash Satpathy : Does anybody know the name of the piano score being played in the background?

Israa Galal : This video is freaking me out. How can I trust anything anybody says around me now lol

Bollog Nyessy : GREAT video but please don't use the phrase "in and of itself".

Frosty Alaska : Nerotypicals are weird glad the US government made me autistic with vaccines the measles in my stomach suck but atleast my thoughts arent clouded in useless emotion

Sırket : I wish if you can write the transcript below so we can read and contemplate on it on our own ... I love all videos of this kind ... thank you

Matt Reynolds : I try to be as honest and brutal when I take a look at myself, like today I looked in the mirror and realized I am truly handsome and great looking. It wasn't an easy thing to do but it needed to be done. And when I told my girl she was to fat and making me look bad, it was out of pure love and she will thank me one day. And when I treated myself to a steak dinner I let her watch me eat it for motivation, so next time she could enjoy a good meal after losing a few pounds. I am always doing stuff for other people. I'm a giver in every way☺

Paula Jones : I hear myself doing this. “I would have been a terrible parent anyway” or “it doesn’t matter what I want as long as you’re happy, I’m happy. “

Jayme Capurso : Such well executed examples of the topics, Im the addiction one and can 100% agree its for the reasons highlighted here.....Not that it is going to make me change my behaviour because there's not much I can do to fix what I don't want to face so it's on with the scotch arm curls I go.

Kyla Morcozo : I've been avoiding/lying...but now that I realized that I'm having this crisis...I am skeptical i'd be able to pull myself out as I've been too far deep in my safe hole for far too long
