Ok so i really dont care if this is read or not and i really dont care if you all agree with me or not... This is a rant a huge rant, i just need to get this off my chest because frankly i am sick of this pitiful world we live in. I am tired of the people showing how unforgiving and uncaring they are. How all i ever see is selfish people doing selfish things. I see that if there was a catastrophe of some sort then we would destroy each other because no one cares. I see everyone just wallowing in self pity and despair even before there is a reason to.. i see everyone medicating their children so they just dont have to deal with them. I see fighting and pain everywhere. Even mother earth is sick of it.. i know you all can feel it.. the earth is crying. This world is tired of US!!!!! I try so hard every day to start my day off in a positive way, I open my eyes and say yes this is going to be a good day. I try to instill positive feelings in the people i see and talk to. But i just feel this negativity surround me in such a way that its starting to make me ill. I am almost counting the days down now... instead of feeling sad of something bad happening i almost welcome it...let make a fresh start, lets start over...lets break society down so that we can try again. Can we possibly do better next time.. can we focus on feeding the hungry and clothing the poor, can we educate to bring about a new and better world????? I dont know anymore....im just tired...and i will again go to sleep and wake with that thought in my head that it will be a great day..because if i dont who will........

ouch, ouch, oooch and ouch.
Having began feeling the way you describe, I also began to wonder, just how is it that I have the where with all to even compare. All the crap we see around us as you describe. How is it that I can even find in myself an ideal with which to posit something different. If all we are comes from here, and only here and it is all so messed up, where do our ideals of something better come from. And how we are now really is just an outgrowth of how we have ALWAYS been. Like we really never had a chance. Know what I mean?

So I kinda think that all of this is just the suffering part like Buddha suggested and that there is something more besides just this. I guess I'm kinda with you on your rant.

If that's all you see, it's because that's all you focus on. There are still a lot of VERY good people in this old World, it's just that they don't seem to make it into the news very often.

See ya,
Milt

Including yourself. I know where you are coming from, now swim up from the deep dark sea and witness the sunrise. When you are on ATS all the time, the doom and the gloom seems to over cloud your positive energy (thinking). Get out, enjoy your life bro and when nature wants to destroy us all she will in her own time but until then log out. Peace and patience and lots of love.

I try very hard to see the good in people..and i guess i can agree with a few of you that my pain is my own doing where i have lost focus..i will try harder to see what is most important...and i do thank a few of you in seeing that im not saying this to just bitch...im saying this to release this hardship so i can heal.

Welcome aboard the reality train.

Yup, it all sucks and there is no hope. You can accept that or just let it affect you.

Perhaps consider becoming a Buddhist.

Then why did you post, you could have left this as a text on your computer.
Or like 90 percent of the things I write, just close the browser and allow the contents to be spread to the corners of the interwebs.
Whatever works for you though.

I know right???
I decided a long time ago it was just better to stick around and be a pain in the @@@ to my enemies!

I'll catch my wife saying "I wish that person would just check out", then I remind her that it is truly best to make your enemies live especially if they are miserable.

Dont give up friend. I know it "seems" like we only see bad but, you have to remember all the good people out there who are probably like yourself. I feel like giving up is the same as losing your soul, so please dont let your soul be stolen. I think you should challenge yourself to go out and make conversation with different people, I think you will notice that the world is not as horrible as you think. Please don't give up on life your just falling for a trap.

Good thread when the bad wolf seems to have the upper hand:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

One thing I will say. It is the bad stuff that makes the news. People are doing good things all over the planet.

Please don't give up hope and fall into despair - that is really starving the good wolf.

I struggle with this, too.

In my basic psychology class (way back when) the teacher proposed that if I take care of me, and you take care of you, and he takes care of himself... There would be no problems in the world.

You are looking at how 7 billion people abuse the world, instead of just enjoying your own little world (taking care of you). Sure, there are some people with the means to make a huge impact on humanity, but for most of us, we don't have that ability. But, what we CAN do is lead by example.

If you make yourself happy and contented with your own life, others will say, "I want to be like that!"

Don't look for the good in others, and don't put anyone up on a pedestal, because you will always be disappointed.

Create your own world. Love what you do. Enjoy the hell out of your own life. Pretty sure that even if you don't see it, you will be planting seeds of inspiration to others.

Hang in there Natame, sometimes you'll adapt to the sh*tstorm better than other times. I think most of us feel that way sometimes, I know I do, I really feel your rant. You are right, that things really do seem rather hopeless, but that's only one way of looking at things. Try to ease off that weight of the world, only so much one person can do. Try not to worry so much, even though everything is so very worrying. See yourself as a character in a story, where no matter how bad the story gets, you've still got your humanity. Focus on nice little things you can do for yourself and others, even a smile can make a difference, can make someone's world a little bit brighter.

I vary between being strong and taking it all on, and thinking it would be reasonable to just go jump off a bridge or something. Most of the time I'm definitely glad I've stuck around. It's amazing the difference a day can make, and we all gotta do our best to ride out our ups and downs. I wish you better days, which I know you'll have!
