I mean, the world is going to hell in a hand basket, people have no jobs or money, prices go up, criminals get away with all kinds of stuff, and the govt situation gets worse by the day. Really, why bother? I just don't care anymore, why bother? Although I do well, why bother, why keep up with the rat race, where incrementally you take one step back for every step forward over your life? Hell, at this rate rich, poor, middle class, we'll all be poor, working a life time for really nothing and in vain. Sad state of affairs, I never thought life would end up like this, nor the world in general...

Yes, all the time.

Nobody listens.

Everybody's just too wrapped up in being right.

Me, Three.

It's like talking to brick wall.

I just pay attention to my studies and that's it. Why, waste my breathe.

Quit participating.

Form your own communities free of this whole reality society sold you?

Sounds crazy doesn't it? Yet if enough people did it, it could work, there's a lot of smart, hard working, loyal people out there that I am sure feel exactly as you do, but its all about coming together to achieve any of this, the more you let a government divide you the more and more everyone feels alienated. We feel hopeless, when nobody should, everyone thinks they are powerless, not the case. Definitely not the case when people work together for common good.

...and what, live in ignorance? You can't close Pandoras box once opened. Live in bliss all you want, I don't see too many more quality years in the near future... which is very sad. How did we even get to this point? No one seems to care, and no one wants to listen, they, like you, would rather live in bliss...

Those don't work, you still are under an umbrella of sorts, and accountable to it. That is a micro bandaid to a macro wound.

At this point.....I just try and take care of my family...just hope things get better, my business picks up so I can still live in my home. At the same time I am prepared for the worse being a Vol. Firefighter and worked at 9/11 and saw the worst.

It does. Every freaking day I get up, get dressed, drive to work, all the while thinking, why in the hell am I doing this? Seriously, WHY?!?!? Its not like being a good saver, playing by the rules, obeying all the laws, being financially, and humanly responsible really got me anywhere better off than the losers in life, except for that self pat on the back, but of what value is that? I almost feel like I'm on a tread mill not going anywhere, though I try. I see no future, and if we have a future at what cost to those who were responsible and played by the rules?

would i be on this sight if I was living in bliss? Im just capable of not letting the worlds # interfere with my own. I have a happy life because I choose to. Get rid of the whiny emo mindset and go have fun.

I hear you. I do the best i can for my family, but you are right, everyone has the me first attitude. I was not raised this way, I have always tried to help others if I could. Yet, as of late, I get the feeling that those types of people mistake my kindness for weakness - of which I am not. Everyone, is about ME. I swear to god, I look around and do not recognize this world anymore, its like I died and went to hell, or got teleported to some strange parallel universe...

I know how you feel! I have so many friends in my age bracket with no job( try getting one when your over 55).
What makes keep going is my only child, soon to be 18 ,she does great in school,member of Mach Trial, in the High school band (which is rated in the top 10 in the US) and Capt. of the Police cadet program. For me I take pleasure of putting my life on the line to help people(that's what Vol. Firefighters do) and people really do appreciate it in our towns! THAT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD.

why should i?go along the long boring road till i,m too old to do anything for myself?no thanx

don,t see why people want to live a long life to do what?become that old u struggle to do daily tasks.........i,ve saw old people on the street and thot fck that i,d rather not be here......i,d rather go out well before that.

I'm not advocating for anyone to "check out", I just don't know what the solution is... Will things change for the best, or will these be considered the "golden years"? Very scary times. Like you, I was told to get a job early on in life, save, raise a family, be responsible, go to school, etc. and yet, why do I not feel any happier about these decisions? I am very concerned about the future, and did I strive and work hard, all in vain?

why bother? yes its something that goes on in a lot of people minds. Just don't bother with that level of life. If you want something to die, just let it go don't bother about it. there is the high road and there is the low road. The low road needs advertising,propaganda and all kinds of ways to convince you that it is the way. It is not the way, it is a way keep that clear.
Now I can ask myself why did I bother to write this and the answer is simple. I didn't bother, the words just flow. take is easy bro or sis.

lol oh never thot about checking out,never would.......just meant why live your life to the rules so u live as long as possible......just not going to live my life to extend it when to me i don,t see the point.


i,ve said before you live your life to the rules then how much of a life do u really have?

you get up and go to work for what about average say 10 hrs a day,come home and spend a couple of hours doing what you want to do then bed and get up and do it all over again.

you do that for 65 years and then spend the rest of your life if your fit enough and even if you last that long struggling about.oh yeah lives that great i want to live forever.
