Roosh, you should try meditation or Yoga (I’m serious here). I’m planning on doing Kundalini Yoga this summer. I think it will really help to make me grow as a person and find my path.

Wow, you seem like a decent guy in this video. All the more reason it’s such a shame you’ve devoted so much of your life’s energy to hurting others and to teaching other men to hurt people. Maybe now you could devote yourself to undoing some of that damage? It’s never too late 🙂

This must be some subtle satire.

Roosh, this “Complex” idea is bull. As someone who has read most of your books I can tell you that you’re seeing the world through new eyes and need to adapt to the new perspective. It is a part of growing up, just like shedding the poisonous viewpoints that may have led you to positive results. There is so much to enjoy in the world, shrouding it with a “Complex” is counterproductive.

Good luck Man. The road ahead is never known.

The smartphone will be obsolete soon, girls will be sluttier than we can even imagine today, and your travel guides and lay manuals will be hopelessly outdated and of interest only to 3 or four cultural historians. The (in)famous Roosh will be soon forgotten. Of all the wonderful creations that have sprung from your fertile mind, what among them will be remembered? For all sperm shot from your loins have any met their purpose? You have achieved remarkable success in your field it is true, but will you be remembered alongside Casanova and Don Juan? Will aspiring bloggers study your techniques through the ages? Have you no desire to create some art, some work, or some offspring that will remember you to those yet unborn? Or are you content to live, fuck, die and return to the bleak anonymity from whence you came, unworthy of any remembrance?

you’re not rich, you’re not actually famous, your books are unknown to the mainstream.

package the last few years of your life traveling the world and writing bang guides into a single narrative memoir that would appeal to a large audience.

in any case i still don’t really understand what your plan is to not die completely destitute. it seems hard to believe that these blogs could sustain you for even 10 more years. how much more can there be to say? that doesn’t make you anxious?

The philosopher/historian Johan Huizinga said that all men must face the Terror of History (ie the fact that terrible things happen in this world and that all of us must one day perish). Generally speaking, men face the Terror of History in one of three ways: 1. religion (immerse oneself in a timeless religious tradition that promises eternal salvation) 2. hedonism (self explanatory) 3. aesthetics (immerse oneself in beauty, usually some sort of artistic creation).
Roosh, I think your complex was a subconscious attempt to cope with the Terror of History via the hedonism strategy. The problem with this mechanism is that it does not last. Eventually, the joy of hedonic acts dissipates, leaving anomie its wake. Your solution? Find relief from the Terror of History in one of the other two stategies.

Turn your energies to where all wise men are turning – ending feminism.

The only reason you could “get flags” is because worldwide feminists have taught women to exchange sex for power. When feminists have sufficient power, they will teach the women to withdraw sex and men will have neither power of access to female sexuality.

Unless men get smart and start working actively to end feminism your sons and grandsons will be slaves.

The most evil social movement in the history of mankind, is feminism.

Roosh,

Think of your eyes as having finally rolled forward to see the world, instead of being locked in a grim backward glare at your own psychology.

You see new things because your world is new; you are no longer reducible to your own ultimately trivial psychology, or moods.

You are nothing but a writer. You are completely a writer and you have a precious ability to hate. As some have suggested above, find a thousand ways to *murder* “feminism,” which is truly a great evil.

Begin soon a series of books that show the depair and disrepair of both men and women under the terrible ideology of “feminism.”

These books can move seamlessly between narrative, observation and opinion. When I join the forum I can help you further.–

You dont care about being rich, wearing nice clothes, being overly swole, etc. And you only care about getting laid a little now.

What this signifies to me is that living for yourself is no longer enough. The feeling you have means there is no way left in which you desire to improve yourself.

So think about improving the lives of others; get a messiah complex. Be hellbent on stopping feminism. You may have hated it before because it threw entitled fatties in the way of your quest to get laid, but the ills of feminism run much deeper than just that. You dont need some master plan to do this: you would be surprised how much simple agitation can change the world.

Some sort of consciousness-oriented practice would do it.

Transcendental Meditation, yoga, tai chi, maybe some form of qigong.(all concurrent with weights & strength training.)

Something to explore and unlock the mysteries of inner space–the mind.

Roosh, I believe I’m your 7 year younger self and I still have a complex. But my recommendation would be to throw yourself into the fire. I believe you are too comfortable, your having a harder time learning new skills by pursuing the same things. Try something off your beaten path. Maybe start a small business (not in teaching game however). Maybe pick up a part time job in a field that you have never thought about. I think what might be holding you back is your blog and loyal followers; we still have a game complex and want to hear your triumphs in traveling and game.

1. The rhetoric thing for public debates
2. Some brain melting math or related
3. Lessons for the hopeless, hard-luck cases like the Zoolander “center for kids who don’t read good” for pick-up
4. Comedy. You’re good enough but if you turned it into a sideline you could make American Pie look like Masterpiece theater.

Maybe one of those would be rewarding.

The biggest question is: what do *you* want to do? Me, personally? I want to work hard and make lots of money, not because I need it to live a better life, but because money is power, and that power can be used to make the world a better place, through suppression of poisonous ideologies such as feminism. I want to have the freedom to lay on a beach reading some worthy book, with some gorgeous local girl beside me, knowing that my efforts have led to some meaningful progress, or at least that I tried.

Most men throughout history have found satisfaction in their campaigns, which most often ultimately involved nothing more than achieving a comfortable standard of living, and being able to provide the same for their heirs. The great among them have risen to prominence and founded cities or controlled empires. That’s not likely for you and I, but it has been said that the pen is mightier than the sword, and yours seems to be working quite well.

Every man is religious. Some worship their jobs, some their women or children, some their preferred pleasures, some God, some their ideals or ideologies. It seems like racking up notches for the sake of racking up notches is no longer the main goal in your life. Did you have hobbies and interests before you discovered Game? After Diocletian resigned as Roman Emperor, having done his bit for the common good and to satisfy his power complex, he retired to grow cabbages.

Roosh,

Instead of searching for another complex, embrace the void. All novelties wear off. Don’t subject yourself to constantly finding new ones.

I think there is a dormant part of you that would be brought to life by having kids– particularly a flesh and blood son of your own, who you can mold into a great man.

Maybe at a certain point your complex will be that you don’t have a family, and you can use Game to find the best possible mother for your progeny. We all know how much more mainstream that is, so you don’t have to worry about losing readers… you would probably have 10x more, albeit many more “blue pill” thinkers.

You’ve traveled and observed international cultures more than anyone your age. Use your international experience and knowledge to solve some of the worlds’ problems. For example, apply your understanding of the female and male mindsets (and how they play out in different cultural contexts) to reduce tensions between the west and the middle east.

Or

Raise children without complexes.

I think either of those would prove to be a huge challenge.

Complex? You don’t want a psychological sickness. You want an obsession in which you can apply a strategy to achieve goals.

Well that’s what it seems like you’re asking for, I don’t live in your head.

There’s the first choice: Micro or Macro?

Micro level is balancing yourself which falls into either one or all of these:
1. Body (vitality, size, endurance, ect ect)
2. Brain (intelligence, wisdom, capability, Knoweledge)
3. Hobbies (Art, Skills, Martial Arts, writing, motorcycle maintenance)
4. Productivity (all that provides value to others or training to yourself)
5. Relationships (family, friends, relationships)

Macro: your life and legacy as a whole
This one is super vague, what would you accomplish if you knew you could not fail? The macro goal is normally the obsession and as long as you maintain your micro goals you could kick some serious ass at your macro goals.

From your forum and websites it would appear that your life focus could be:

1. Destroying feminism
2. International Relations / Travel/ Cultural Observer
3. Re-introducing masculine virtue and lifestyle
4. A hobby (such as writing or music)
5. Anything you damn well please.

You’re going to die one day, that’s a fact, what are you going to do with the handful of days you have left?

How about getting buff and getting into bodybuilding? Since you have a tall, skinny physique you could rededicate your life to this and perhaps work-out for a few years and then enter some bodybuilding or cross-fit competitions. I would love to read your blog and see how a tall, skinny guy became superman through hard work. Of course you could continute your travels and would just need to write more about the fitness levels of the male society in the different countries you visit, the best gyms to hit there, sports culture, etc.

So you want something that is really hard to do, that has a cool, playboy sort of cache, that will allow you to continue the vagabond lifestyle you currently enjoy…

Become an airline pilot. You will slog and toil and quite likely won’t make it, but even if you don’t, flying is cool. It’s scientific, it requires focus, it’s fun as hell… stewardesses…

With your web history I don’t know that an airline would continue to employ you when they found out what your previous employment consisted of, but if they drop you there’s a potentially enjoyable lawsuit just waiting to be prosecuted.

Ah, Roosh, you already know the answer to this question. You are a Confronter, a Challenger; first to your own obstacles, and now perhaps to external, societally-imposed ones. But a Confronter of what?
I see a man who is intelligent, talented, fearless, and an effective communicator capable of inspiring thousands of young men to responsible action.
Having slain your own personal dragon, you will now focus your gaze on wider horizons. You are not interested in selling out or conforming; that much is clear. And thank God for that. You have no desire, rightfully, to compromise your beliefs to appease the average dunce.
I’ve been reading Diogenes Laertius’s “Lives of the Eminent Philosophers”, and could see you somehow in the mold of the experienced sage who uses his wisdom to enrich others’ lives. Read Diogenes for inspiration and guidance.
I see you as a founder of a new philosophic school, a writer, a teacher, and a guide to others. I expect to see you founding your own business or company that somehow showcases and propagates your pre-existing “goodwill” equity that exists in the public.
Looking for new demons to slay? There are no shortage of candidates out there. But pick your dragon wisely, and do not be consumed by petty battles with unworthy opponents.

Roosh,
You are a writer. a travelor. you can afford to do both.
Be a modern day Hemmingway. Go to wild places. find and document interesting stories (like a one man Vice of you tube). get drunk. fuck lots of girls. get a side kick. (ill go if you pay). and blog and or video the whole fucking thing for us to enjoy. here and on youtube.
Hemmingway was an interesting, great writer but his actual life was what was really fascinating.
Be him and you will fight feminism without even lifting a finger. and get a tan.

Before we start referring to Roosh as a “Casanova”, let’s examine the facts. This was a guy that had to leave the country to start getting pussy. Take that for what it’s worth. But those are Rooshs’ words, not mine. Also, quit using the term “flag” to describe women you’ve slept with from various countries. You sound like a douche. Thirdly, the reason you need a new insecurity is because you got into game to fill a void you thought was the root cause of your unhappiness, when in fact it goes much deeper than that. As it does for me and many of the posters above me on this page. If worse comes to worse you can always take Most Interesting Man in the World (#47) with you all over the globe looking for your next spiritual quick-fix until you hit rock bottom again. I’m sure he’d love to glom off you as much as possible. As long as you pay for him, that is. You’re a spiritually bankrupt individual, Roosh. Coming to terms with that may be the first step in not needing to find anymore insecurities to overcome, and not just continuing to go through the motions day after day.

So in order to give you a complex… should we start hating on you? Maybe you should read the hater comments on your blog and start taking them seriously and letting them get under your skin. Unfortunately for you, game requires you to develop self confidence, which is going to make it a lot harder to develop a complex. Good luck!

Social interest is probably the healthiest sources of motivation, obviously while avoiding to neglect one’s happiness. You should check out therawness’s post on theaters of operation.

Since you’re aware that you can choose what you fear and turn into an insecurity, you’ve realized half of it. The other half is knowing that the “insecurity” you choose doesn’t have to be a socially conventional one. Also, you should avoid one in which you’re comparing yourself to others, and instead choose one where the only parameter is if you’re better than you were before.

So with that said, the sensible thing to do is to focus first on configuring your career to better the lives of others, if at this point you’re having a difficult time deciding what you enjoy. Figure out what your biggest assets to society are, and leverage those to move forward. And then on the way you’ll find out which things you like doing, and you’ll have your answer.
