I thought this was a great interview. Here is a former pick-up artist who ultimately found love and quit his ways. He realized that sleeping with random women does not lead to happiness. It’s a surface level feeling that ultimately doesn’t go beyond pleasure.
Neil Strauss looks really humbled here and I love the one line where he touched on the idea that you’re supposed to feel more than just happiness in life and that you have to build up the emotional muscle of acceptance. he hits it on the head here. Life will require you to FEEL and understand a wide range of emotions. The key to emotional strength is to snap yourself out of disempowering states, but it’s silly to try to avoid experiencing pain/sadness/guilt. You will feel them from time to time and it’s OK. It’s just temporary and you can CHOOSE to snap out of it.
