Catchy title eh'? No? Well you're here, so mind it.
Eriksons Model of Despair Vs. Integrity
Integrity - the quality or state of being complete or undivided : completeness.
Despair - To be hopeless; to have no hope; to give up all hope or expectation.
Regret - to think of with a sense of loss
Now I've thought about this alot, (haha) well, anyone with a working brain has thought about it.
My first question, which I can remember, from grade school, early, early grade school, was what would someone say at my funeral. Now i'm fairly sure
my first question was "really, everyone poops?"
But talking of first monumental question.
We all have regrets, I regret the girl in 3rd grade, who turns out, really wanted me, huh, she had a funny way of showing that.... lol. Or the regret
of not taking that job offer, or the regret of buying a phone that, in the end, turned out to suck more then anything!
I believe, at the point of 99% that when every member on this forum reaches (hopefully, except for sirnex) age 70, will feel a deep sense of regret, a
soft realization of age, and a bitter acidic drop in their stomachs, which will tell them, that they should've done one thing, or everything
Now the difference is, the trial and error, whether we go about making the same mistakes we do everyday, or acknowledging the mistakes, and never
making them again.
The chances of YOU being alive right now, is about 1 in a 1,000,000,000 I know, the Gov't throws dollars away in that amount 100's of folds. But
life isn't money.
Maybe this is personal, and happygolucky, and watcher-in-the-shadows, and XXNEO, and Slayer69 will probably call me out, for that, but i'm prepared
with my next statement, (Oh and yes I did call you out, oh, and JD yeah couldn't forget you lmao).
But, can we really, with our likelihood of being alive, a one in a billion chance, better then the lotto, each child born, is a lotto won.
Can we really 'afford' to take anything for granted, can we really 'afford' to end in despair?
Can we really, live our lives, in fear of what the person next to us thinks of us, what one person out of 100,000,000,000 people, who have lived and
died, not including those alive, (estimated) can we really live our life on that one pathetic person?
What would your grandparents say, your ancestors say, if they saw someone so shy, and so timid living, I'd like to think they'd be pissed as all
hell!!! They'd be aggravated by the fact that person didn't stand up, or do something!
For 9/11 truthers, I may not be 'fully' sold, but I'm leaning toward the idea, but some may be afraid to stand up, and make a youtube video (that
at the least) because they feel they may get hate comments, or some will call them stupid, but for those, who have stood in an area, and thought if
one stands up, i'll stand with them, well, we all have felt that way, someone just needs to stand up, and I assure you the rest will follow.
Regret in life, isn't worthwhile, I know it, and some may say, that when they die, they won't regret the mistakes because of, blah blah blah,
hypocritical mumbojumbo, and that they will be happy.
But the dead truth is, when that time comes, would you truly be ok with your life, and no quick witty remarks, just think, of what a regret is.
The only way we can change it, is by doing it now, by going on in our daily lives, and strangling and plucking the eyes, and tongue out of the
mythical being that makes us see wrong, and fear what we say.
When you see a person, and begin to wonder if you should talk to them, then you know for sure you should, but I know, that bitch in the back of your
mind says what are the consequences, lol, what is your lifespan, who gives a fk! The Celestine Prophecies, is a good book to read, to those who
I figure, that we all, have a problem with becoming ourselves, our childish being, the one who asks someone why they have a pimple on their nose, or
why they have briefcase, both innocent questions to a child, but also to an adult, which we tend to forget.
Point being... Live life guys, I see so many people on here, with so much knowledge of things.
What would your ancestors say to you now, if they saw you in your ways now?
When you almost felt up that girl? (do it mate!)
When you almost applied for the job? (do it mate!)
When you almost started a protest? (do it mate!)
When you decided to Star and Flag this? (do it mate!)
Lol, kidding on the last one! Some humor is good! LMAO
