The Final Game
Solving problems backwards.
Reverse engineering. We have read and heard of it a lot in movies. Why not try it on our problems.
So you ask questions to get your answers to your problems. Each answer is its own next question.
Why am I depressed?
Because I'm stuck here in the city
Why are you stuck?
Why no money?
Cause I don't have a good paying job.
Why no good job?
Cause I didn't pay attention to my career choice when I was young.
So there you go. The cause of the problems is ME. Not the world. No the circumstances. But my poor ass choices. Also once I leave this shithole I know I'll be happier.
You have to be true to yourself for it to work though. Takes balls to blame oneself and take responsibility.
