I don't feel like I've reprogrammed shit. I'm just another broken person who has shallow, alienated relationships, sits in front of screens, and gets their food from the supermarket.

for most people the idea that money and by extention capitalism is natural is the hardest to get rid of

Do you have any pointers on how you solved this?

I feel like a failure and a hypocrite. Both of my parents are in declining health, they have limited funds, and I feel like I need to step up and plug that fiscal gap. However, this makes me work harder and then I feel disappointed with myself because I don't know when I can 'safely' step out of the rat race. Of course the more I work the more I neglect my health, my garden, eating healthy, and how can I even openly discuss being an anarchist when I am brazenly feeding the machine.

Solving the idea that capitalism is natural? Know that life existed before capitalism, remember that another world is possible

for me, that I am deserving of consent & respect and identifying when someone is abusing me. That's fucking hard.

Hmm I'd say trying to win everyone's respect. Or the idea that everything in life has to be earned, that nothing is/should be given.

but pretty much all of it is hard
