I've been in the IM game for 4 years now (wow, that's a pretty long time now that I think about it!) and I need to let something off my mind. Over these past few months, I have finally understood the principle of making money online (Mainly because I began thinking like there's no box, which will take you beyond. It's so amazing...) It actually blows my mind that everywhere I go, everything I do; whether I'm starring at a pond, picking up trash, seeing things, witnessing- EVERYTHING from the moment that you and I are living, there was once money invested. For instance, you can be looking at a pond and realize that at one point, the government paid construction workers to make it. (Which is a means of making money.) Anyways, am I sounding a bit crazy? (I'm just letting you guys know how my mind works now compared to a few years ago.) ...And I think it's that time where I need a reality check. I'm getting to that point where I don't even socialize with girls as much, as in I have no desired to be a player or to chase them anymore. I'm even worried that if I fall for a girl, she'll either be a gold digger or I'll have what you call, "one it-is". I do have friends who are girls, but what I'm trying to say is, am I too addicted to all this IM? Is my mind way too wired? or am I just highly motivated? I hear stories like how Mark Zuckerberg doesn't even watch TV or waste time on little things like that because he prioritize his time, and I think it's so amazing and inspiring. In fact, I don't even own a HDTV anymore. I buy food that are already pre-made or just needs to be oven baked, and I skip certain school days just because the time it takes to get there. (essentially time = money.) But even then, he seems to have a good relationship with his now wife. I hate to hear it, but I can already see people telling me to have "balance". Does this mean I'm too addicted? Do I need to back off? Would love to hear some members' insight. I'm just worried about being way too addicted to this stuff money making stuff. Sorry if it's too long, I felt that I need to explain myself a bit. And no, I'm not weird or anything lol. Or maybe I am.
