While one might consider this more of a personality trait, let's just say nuts to that. See how each party here is determined to do opposing things? The moral of the story is to be bigger and stronger than your companions or foes. But if you find that you are just smaller and can't help it, out determine your supposed master until they give in and give you a "doggie" treat. I think one method that seems to do the trick is to be an asshole, or a total bitch. If those don't work, try a little passive aggression. Yeah, in short, anti-social behavior just gets re-categorized as determination and will, if you are the victor. Remember that one, kiddies: You just might find yourself leading a major superpower or corporation in the future.
Loneliness and depression:
Sometimes life is just too much for us and we feel like running away from our troubles. But sometimes, it is more of a matter that we are trying and life just has a way of making you feel like it's out to get you something fierce. It's always good to persuade someone to come along with you. If you can't do that, get a pet. They seem to depend on you for their food, so they will stick around and make you feel loved. It may be a relationship of necessity for the pet, but you paid for them. Yeah, sit that dog/cat/fish/alligator down and tell them outright, "I own you, sucker...you ain't ta goin' nowheres, bwahahahaha!"
Hey sometimes good things just happen to you. Why fight it? Let your head spin a few times. Don't worry, they have doctors that can fix that sort of thing. Besides, if you look this excited people will start to wonder what in the hell is wrong with you. After they give up trying to figure out what in the hell you're so happy for, they will give into peer pressure and start wetting their pants in total glee.
Shit yeah, it could happen! Try it out: go to a supermarket or a bank and start smiling like you just got hit with the news that your lotto ticket was a winner. Start exclaiming stuff like, "Oh, my gosh! Oh, my lord! What a wonderful day it is today! Oh, I love your shoes!!! Did some kind of magical shoe making elf do those for you? Oh, could this day get any better? What? What's that you say? They are giving out free samples of Hot Pockets? Thank you Oprah! Thank you Jesus! I am on top of the friggin' world!!!"
I'm not done with this theme. I still need to provide the Rx. More to come in the future, kids.
