**move if necessary

I love having conversations with people - especially people I don't know very well.

I'm sitting at a coffee shop and end up talking to a young woman around my age about the story on RT about Russians beginning a slight panic over 12/21/12. It took 3.5 minutes from the beginning of the conversation for my heart to break...

She has a son and daughter and her husband recently lost his battle with brain cancer. Apparently she's been into doomsday prophecies and the like for a while and her husband was as well. She tells me that some mixup with insurance and healthcare has left her hundreds of thousands in debt, and she's a school teacher - now single mother. She tells me how she's exhausted, and can't even think about trying to settle the debt.

She said she's had many suicidal thoughts since his death, and that the only reason she's still here is because of the children. All that to say, that she hopes the world ends, and even prays for it to end, so that she will be released from this prison.. Not a prison from buying cars and homes that she couldn't afford - but a prison built by an unfortunate illness and its unpredictable nature. She's left with no husband, and debt 8 times their wedding costs. She told me "the world ending means no more me, no more bills, no more pain, no more loneliness, no more broken heart..."

The only response I had was "what about your children then?" and she said "they'll be with me..."




This isn't a doomsday thread as much as it is a prayer, a transmission of positive energy, and a beam of hope for people in her situation, and others like it. Nobody should have to feel like being here is a burden and death - almost complete non existence would be easier than experiencing this life.

This isn't living.

For sure I can agree on this thing:

this isn't living

Honestly, I agree with her. I am ready for a collapse and the big reset. Things need to change, but only something huge will suffice. Our current socialist nanny state is a big fail. We need to start over.

End of the world and collapse and reset are different things though. As I said, wishing for the END is wishing for non existence.

As mush as I would extend sympathies to this poor woman and her children, she has no right hoping for it to end for everybody.

All of us go through some very painful and challenging times through our lives, but if you can't handle it - don't wish your kids dead.

Its a sad reality that this is the norm around the globe, and I fear for this woman's children's safety.

The woman lost her husband and is in debt; those 2 things are difficult and I have compassion for her and her situation. It takes time to grieve etc.

There are things she can do to help herself and her children; I think they should all go to counseling and get some help.

I just wish that she would look at the positives in her life and what she does have.

Sometimes the posatives in life that are left do not make it feel worth while for all the pain people go though on a daily basis. I feel very sorry for the person in the OP and I can sympahise with her because I myself are finding times very hard and almost impossible to deal with.
