Dopamine Slave to Dopamine Dealer

Updated: Jul 19, 2023

Your addiction to cheap dopamine is killing your purpose.

Constantly scrolling is destroying your mind.

Constantly eating junk is destroying your body.

Constantly watching porn is destroying your soul.

Constantly procrastinating is destroying your future.

Constantly seeking validation is destroying your confidence.

Think about it

Every time you indulge in your cheap dopamine-inducing activities, you get a shot of pure happiness straight to the brain. You feel like you’re on top of the world. So, you keep repeating. And before you know it, weeks turn into months, and you're still stuck in the same damn place. You're like a hamster on a wheel, running and running, but never actually getting anywhere.

Don't be fooled by what pleases your senses. Just because something

  • tastes good

  • feels good

  • looks good

  • entertains you

  • invites you in — doesn’t mean it’s good for you.

The thing that seems the most tempting is the most destructive.

Take Control

Underneath your dopamine addiction, there’s an unfulfilled need that you've been neglecting for far too long. That longing is your sense of purpose — your reason for being. You believe that once you have a clear sense of direction, everything else will fall into place. But you know deep down it doesn’t work this way. You can create your purpose only if you are intentional and you can only be intentional if you eliminate cheap dopamine from your life. It’s time to cut the cord.

Do This

Chasing Dopamine → Seeking Purpose Mindless Scrolling → Mindful Creating Watching porn → Meditating Seeking Validation → Cultivating Self-love

And before you ask me how to get started, remember this: your quest for your purpose lies in finding these answers. Embrace the challenge, and good luck on your journey.
