What she said. Reread it. In fact one more... Hit the button on the post that shows it as a single post. Then print it out.
Then reread it a few more times... then grab your balls and squeeze really hard... Does it hurt? Good then you are a man. Stand up like one using your
spine. Get some more backbone. Reread her post again. Don't be a coward.
If you can write dark and very expressively as you had originally, then you can write light stuff too. Don't go looking for sympathy anymore.
Be a man read the news everywhere and trust yourself and God. Have no fear.
If you're a woman...
Edit to add : Yes this is all real. You only get one chance. God provides protection AND discernment. Scoffers can eat # and die.

At first your post sounded appropriately supportive. Then you went left and it was unhelpful and unproductive. I'd say even mean since I generally
consider it unkind to go around invalidating people's feelings and shaming them for showing them. However, I'd expect treatment like that if I was
actually in a survival situation and there was no time for all this feelings stuff (think Dawn of the Dead).
I don't feel bad for expressing myself. It's healthy. I wrote what I felt. I am quite capable of writing light stuff (actually I show a happy face a
lot in person lately just to not spread my sadness or freak people out), but I will not do it because someone tells me to buck up and stop being
honest. I will do it when I feel like it. Millions of people are about to possibly die; I'm gonna grieve, whether now or later or both, and nothing
can truly change that. I can use palliative measures to calm myself down, but the truth is as it is. Anyway, fully feeling the dark feelings can be a
valuable step on the path to sunniness. And sharing them with other humans can be healing for *all* involved. Keeping all this inside isn't healthy
for anyone. There will be plenty of time for that when things get worse.
And here's the main thing: I wasn't looking for sympathy, so to speak. I don't even come on this forum anymore, but I have no one to talk to out
here who understands the gravity of the situation. So what I was possibly looking for was support (there *is* a difference between that and sympathy),
but mainly to relate to others who are going through the same thing - by that I primarily mean others who have premonition- and intuition-type
experiences to the point where these events, in our minds, are clearly going to pass. I'm not talking about just info from the news/internet/ATS
making us think it might pass, not really.
Plus, if you're making me out to be some kind of leech, that's wrong too. With my original name, I actively gave support and information on here for
So, I appreciate the initial attempt at empathy and being supportive. You seem to have some good intentions, I guess. Messages of strength can be
helpful, depending on how you present them. You assumed I'm not strong because I turned to others, yet I am handling this in my daily life pretty
much on my own. I'm handing it the best I can and in ways a stranger on the internet can't see.
And maybe I also wrote my dark post as a warning. I'm not sure you considered that. I didn't want to get on a bullhorn like Alex Jones (I'll leave
that to him because he does it well
), but I was putting it out there.
By the way, careful assuming you know people's gender online.
In any case, I have never felt so connected to my fellow humans as I am feeling right now (that I can remember), but I'm not going to bother coming
on here if people are just gonna be like this. Usually I would deal with the usual ATS negativity here and there, but there are more pressing things
out here and true light to be found in the all-too-real darkness.
