How to Be an Adult

How to Be an Adult

Your Place in the World (Ep. 3)

September 12, 2023

In this episode, Luke and Pascal speak about how to relate to other human beings as an adult, and more generally, your place in the world. We start by speaking about the importance of approaching other people with a metaphorical cup that’s full or running over. We also discuss the importance of truth, boundary-setting as an expression of morality, human nature as fundamentally pro-social, relationships as a positive-sum pursuit and social media being anything but that.

00:00 – Intro

01:01 – As an adult, treat yourself as an equal to others- you have a seat at the adult table

04:35 – What is your place in the world- approach others with a cup that’s already full

14:22 – Value your word, and honest even when it’s hard

21:34 – Setting and enforcing your own boundaries

25:18 – You are not responsible for the decisions of other adults

27:10 – Prefer pro-social norms to anti-social norms

29:20 – Only pursue relationships where you’ve doubled the love in two people’s lives by being in it

30:24 – Only make apples-to-apples comparisons, if you have to compare yourself to others at all
