Welcome To The Bitchery

tl;dr: My subconscious is a hipster and I want to make it stop being a hipster but I don't know how. Not a massive deal in my life but it would be nice.

What I mean by that is that when people show me things and are particularly enthusiastic about them, I tend to get my hackles up and start feeling negatively towards it, especially if it's already something widely popular. It's annoying because I want to enjoy these things, but I always have trouble no matter how I consciously see this happening in me because while I can keep from voicing the negative opinions, my brain still thinks them. Then I avoid watching the show/playing the game/listening to the band because I'm not enjoying myself and what's the point if I'm not enjoying myself in my leisure time? But then I'm giving in to the irrational part of my brain so I'm not sure that's the right thing to do; maybe the proper response is to try to consciously push away the negative thoughts and keep inundating myself in the stuff I'm pushing back against until I don't see it negatively anymore?


Fix my hipster brain please!
