Adults make decisions and take the consequences. Everyone does stupid things and sometimes they’re really stupid. Hedonists don’t whine about bad luck. They know they fouled up. Even if they followed advice it’s still their decision and they accept ownership. If the advice was malicious it was poor judgement that meant the advice was followed. Yours! Hedonists don’t play the blame game. Hedonists are adults because they know whining is repulsive.
