Make a confession?

Can be as deep or as lighthearted as you like, mine is that even though I have so many great friends and family members surrounding me, I still often feel more alone than ever.

  • On a more serious note: Emotionally, I feel almost overwhelmed now. The things I honestly want most in life feel like impossible goals. Things below that feel really difficult to accomplish. Some things seem plain just out of reach because of reality of life and the situation I filled into. Likewise, time just keeps on ticking without mercy and it makes the things I want feel more impossible as each day passes.
    Internally, it hurts to see this happen, and it is quite saddening. It feels like life drifting away and I'm not doing anything to stop it. But in actuality, it's because I don't know what I can do or if I can even do anything. I guess that's kind of what I'm struggling with at the moment in my heart.

    That got a little dark, so here is something more lighthearted: When I was learning how to ride a bike some years ago, I crashed into my neighbors parked car and dented the driver side door. I walked off and pretended like it never happened. When my parents saw the scratches on my palms from falling and asked me what happened, I just told them I slipped on concrete earlier.

      Rgd yr first paragraph -- It will help to let go of "expectations", if you happen to have any of those.

      Not the same thing as saying you shouldn't have goals or aspirations... we should all have those, of course. But having concrete/specific expectations is where the trouble starts -- because...
      ...(1) expectations can ONLY create negativity (they leave disappointment if they're unfulfilled, but NOT really satisfaction when they ARE fulfilled... since in that case all you've done is "satisfy expectations"),
      and
      ...(2) having specific expectations can leave you blind to *alternative* opportunities that could be more fruitful or more personally fulfilling.

      Just something to keep in mind... from someone who's been more or less wildly successful in life -- which I attribute mostly to NOT having specific expectations of myself, and therefore being willing to take risks that lots of others wouldn't have taken.

      What are these goals you're afraid you can't hit?

      @redeyemindtricks I get what you are saying from a logical standpoint. It's just one of those "easier said than done" moments I guess 😅.

      Like I think a part of me knows that. However, if I start pursuing slightly tweaked versions, then it feels likes I'm pursuing a less-than-ideal. That kind of irks me, even though it really could be a better option.

      It also feels like I'm resigning myself to a situation where I accept the realistic impossibility of the ideal situations. It makes it harder since I can't get past the "what if." Like what if the impossible aspect is just my head being pessimistic? My mind finds it much easier to hope for the minority than accept the majority percentage here, if that makes sense.

  • I have a strange morbid curiosity. I'll catch myself at 1 am looking at pictures of various dead people who happened to go in different ways. I'll sometimes see gross injuries, see traumatic and haunting things happen to people.
    90% of the time now I'm undisturbed. You just see so much of it, it kind of becomes normal, and you see how vulnerable you really are.

      It is. I've really learned just two things:
      (1.) Us humans are just awful, awful bastards to each other sometimes. I don't see how we haven't all killed each other yet.
      (2.) Life is not permanent. You could die at any time, and you have to remember how your death will impact others.

  • Read my username. It says "castratedwhiteguy". It has real meaning. When I was in college I was kneed right in the balls by a girl because of something I said to her. She hurt me so bad that I ended up in the hospital. She was a feminist and she had a problem with my opinions. Alchol is no excuse. At the time, I would never have thought of raising my hand to any women but this bitch had no problem slamming her knee into my balls simply because I told her that I thought that men deserved preferential treatment in college and in the workplace. That's when I learned how sick, angry and evil feminism really is. That's why I'll fight feminism until we finally kill this demented monster. That's why some of my posts here come off as being hard core angry.

      Trump is pushing back against political correctness and it's about time a few more politicians had the courage to do the same. Those degenerate skanks that Trump called out deserved to guilt shamed. If Trump was the monster that the DNC is trying to make him out to be than it would be on record that he paid some women hush money to drop rape charges just like Bill Clinton and Bill Cosby did. For that reason, you should be more worried about the severe damage that crooked Hillary will certainly do to our economy if she's elected. If you care about woman's rights than you should really be worried about the fact that Crooked Hillary has accepted campaign contributions and pay for play donations from Islamic dictators who stone women and give women no rights whatsoever.

      It's like I said before, "Just vote for Trump and he'll lower our taxes, he'll kill Obamacare, he'll bring energy costs down and he'll get our economy growing again. That's all you need to know". Focus on real issues...

  • This one is bad. We had a cat pass away on Thanksgiving night a few years ago. That's the same night our "elf on the shelf" comes. So instead of telling the kids the cat died I wrote a note from the elf saying she took the cat to live with Mrs. Claus because she really wanted one and the elves would give him cookies and milk everyday.

  • Ever seen Zootopia? In the movie, there's a character, Nick Wilde, who's got a bad past, and puts up a front of "I'm Nick Wilde, and look how much I don't care!" so that people don't see how much things really do bother him.

    I've basically become him. I've got a shield up, and it just says "I'm ok! Look how ok I am!" while in reality I'm stressed beyond belief and slowly falling apart.
