It's sort of an odd question, so let me try to explain a little. For over a year now I've been "working on myself" you might say, basically
delving into my own mind and finding the forces at work that compel me to do the things I hate about myself, my laziness, my drinking, my occasional
outbursts of rage at hurt pride, etc. But this past week I've had some major breakthroughs, what I might consider some of the most significant
events in my entire life. Basically realizing a "way out", a path to change, something that will change my direction from my previous more or less
aimless searching. Last night I went to bed with a sense of accomplishment after making a particularly painful yet enlightening discovery within
But enough about me. This morning I logged onto Facebook, and no less than three people on my list have made postings about amazing insights or
events in their life.
One person seems to have "discovered" that he's God and has been rapidly posting things in the vein of "I love all of you", "If I see you today,
magical things will happen", calling people his "children", etc.
Another is a late-50s schizophrenic I know who has had a pretty stable life for a while on meds, suddenly break out with a realization that he cares
not at all about this life or anyone in it, and about how the "dam is about to burst", and stuff like that, in a rapid-fire series of posts.
Another is someone my age (late 20s) who posted a huge rant essentially on the subject of how this past week has been amazingly significant for him,
and detailing what's been going on in his life and basically opening up in a way that I've never seen him do as long as I've known him.
I'm trying to figure out if this is all coincidence. Have recent times been unusually personally significant for you too? I'm not asking you for
details if you prefer not to give any; I really just want to know how many other people have considered the past week or so to be of unusual
