Falling in love.
I thought it would never happen...but it did. And now...I think...I KNOW...Love can happen to anybody when you least expect it. ;3
We are all waiting on what you think about this in 10 more years. :P
Okay. ;3 I know half the people here will disagree with me either way. x3
I'll back you up !
I met my Husband by accident , we've been together for 28 years . Married for 21 .
Thats beautiful :-)
Congrats on a strong marriage.
My parents were together for 30 and new eachother their entire lives so like 75years :-)
That's lovely !
Love does happen, I really hope yours lasts but dont lose yourself :)
Your opinion would have better if you hadn't changed it. Opening yourself to love is basically ruining your life.
me no tink so! :)
That my father wasn't being a d!ck to me my whole life. Turns out it was me.
What pizza I want when I order it. I'll call and order pepperoni, but soon after the call realize I wanted sausage...
My changing opinion had resulted in heartbreak after heartbreak..
That's nature's cruel way of reminding me that I done f**ked up and ordered the wrong pizza
Just order half pep and half sausage and you should be fine
But ya see I thought I wanted all pepperoni....
If only I knew
Well pizza's pretty cheap these days so just get one of each. 2's always been better than one.
I realize now more than ever than I am responsible for the choices I make. I no longer blame the game because I am the one playing it.
Right! I'm getting wiser too. Clearing cobwebs.
Religion, I used to completely belive in god, but now I am just not sure...
Congratulations on thinking outside of the box. If you haven't already, I suggest you look up a gentleman named Carl Sagan. Peace
For me it was Richard Dawkins.
You dont need religion to believe in god.. religions are crazy. God is within you, basically the good in you.
You can read Einstein, I think he is one of those people who believed in science and God.
@lonewolf666...>Just simply very wrong , I can easily prove that what you say is incorect if required.
I'd like to see the proof, please. I've always read that he believe in a pantheistic form of "God" as opposed to the Judeo-Christian "God". I've seen abridged pieces of one of his final letters recently, but with what I've perceived as the recent and ever increasing militarism of the Atheist community, I'm skeptical, but open.
Albert Einstein considered God to be essentially the sum total of the physical laws which describe the universe. There is no evidence of patriarchs controlling human destiny from some hidden celestial vantage point, but it would be madness to deny the existence of physical laws. I am not an athiest, I am open minded, I have nothing against religious people. I pray and I try to be a good human being, when I do something wrong I dont need to reach out to a particular deity, my conscience is enough to make me feel repentance. I just learn from my mistakes. I just dont think everything is a sin. Being a woman is a sin, eating an apple is a sin, divorce is a sin, homosexuality is a sin, drinking is a sin, eating too much is a sin, feeling envy is a sin, having sex is a sin! We are humans and we make mistakes.
Since everything is a sin, may as well go big or go home, right?
That's my philosophy.. its impossible to be perfect and be accountable for everything, I would rather live a little.
Can you please specify exactly what you want to prove as incorrect ? 1. 'God is within you, the good in you' - incorrect? 2. Einstein and the fact that he believed that faith in God and science can coexist-this is incorrect?
@onewif666...>>>I just now saw your response .Einstein wrote a note to a child who had asked him if he believed in god ,I can find that again its rather well known in fact,He stated clearly he did not believe in god .
I'm also very open minded but to many fundamentalist here [USA] are very ignorant & self righteous ,And there numorous false claims I choose to not let them make those claims .Any form of the word god he used had nothing to do with a creator & he surely was not a creationist !
You don't have to join a fan club to love the music
Have you considered that people can just have good in them, without it being the result of an invisible man?
Glad someone agrees! I consider myself a person of faith rather than a religious person. Ignore the people who find it necessary to bash you for your opinion. To each their own!
I can help u if u want guidance. I am a muslim and i tell u for me religion is the best peace making machine ever, especially 'the' religion, ISLAM ! Islam means peace in arabic. If anyone is interested or wanna chat on religion i am more than happy.
Ps: do not believe social media muslims should not be steryotipicaly judged based on some few minor people who do not represent islam in any way and are a disgrace to all human race
St. Augustine of Hippo and Aleister Crowley might be worth checking out if you're looking for some "religious" inspiration.
Agree 100% I want some sort of proof in order to believe.
Me too, and I have been through a lot a have a stalker dad
Agree in part. Over my life I have concluded there is probably a God. But organized religion is the most evil force mankind ever created. Even Bin Laden wanted to take us all down in the name of God.
I totally agree. I've recently gone back to school and have to take a ton if science courses. It really makes you question the whole creation process and life on earth.
Suicide. Once inspired fear in me, now it's a god-send of an eject button.
only cowards commit suicide...
Sometimes some people go through extreme emotional pain. Life breaks them, friends, lovers betray them and hurt them. Not everyone can take so much pain. I am saying this from personal experience. Pain is personal, only the person who goes through it can understand. It's best not to judge them especially now that they are dead. People probably never understood them, showed them compassion. They were probably so alone that they couldn't take it anymore. So, show them a little compassion now that they are dead. Let them rest in peace. It's best to die than to live on like a zombie.
I think that's a very good answer. I tried to commit suicide in 2012. I am lucky to be alive. The way you explained it sounds very familiar.
I hope that you are doing well now.. going through something lije that is horrifying. I have never tried and will never try to commit suicide because its not that easy, it can go very wrong and I am not that hopeless yet and I dont have tge courage to kill myself. I find it very irritating when people say suicide is selfish and cowardly. Really?! You never cared about the person when he ws alive, dont know wht drove him to it but you find it easy to pass judgements??
Lonewolff666, I agree with you. I'm also happy to hear you have never attempted suicide. When I attempted suicide I ended up on life support. I had swallowed 147 sleeping pills. I was found many hours later...unable to communicate and unable to stand up. I'm glad I was found. I did some temporary damage that was correctable through medical treatment. I had temporary amnesia. Slowly I got my life back. The depression is still overwhelming. I'm starting a new medication soon.
i didnt want excrutating pain when i die, just b\c i screwed up and went to the cops,of course they come up w\ the most convient charge for them to come up w\- s3xu@ll prede+or of a minor, & say i said that, when i didnt, so then every1 n my whole family wanted to k¡ll me.
& i love being alone
nope some people dont want to die when they kill themselves,they might just want to feel
You should see a counsellor or a therapist. Wanting to 'feel' death is not normal.
It isn't so much that they are cowards. I think selfish is a better description. To be so absorbed in one's own problems that you fail to see the consequences of your actions is the height of selfishness.
I have a friend that committed suicide. He had two small girls that will grow up without their father... Parents that outlived their son, and friends that were left feeling as if it was somehow their fault. It took me years to forgive him. I still get mad when I think about it. How can someone be so self absorbed that they fail to see the connections they have to the rest of the world and how much it hurts those who are left when they are shattered?
If you're alone you can be selfish to no one. Cause there's only you.
You are never alone. That is one if the undeniable truths in this world. By birth or fate, you are attached to a family or something resembling one. By the simple actions required to live on a daily basis, you are connected with the people you come in contact with. Even if you are too short-sighted to see it, you are connected.
I have dealt with depression. I have locked locked myself in the house, stayed on the couch for days, and contemplated how little I was. How overwhelming this life is. I didn't realize the connections until I saw an entire town torn to pieces by someone who felt the same way and followed through with it. It was in that pain that I vowed to get over myself and focus in others instead. I found that there are people out there who smile on a daily basis and face much greater mountains than me. Perspective. It saves you.
Well I don't value strangers that much, sadly.
Most don't care about me, rightfully so. So I don't waste time pretending to care about them.
What do you care about?
Myself. My future.
Have you ever heard the expression "no man is an island"?
If you build your life around yourself alone, the walls will come crashing down quickly when you have a problem.
Trust me, it's not my choice. As soon as I see someone I'd like to get to know then I'll try.
If you want to forget about your own problems and experience something worth living for, try thinking externally instead of internally. I am by no means an expert, just someone who has been there and found a way out:)
Sometimes the people who deserve our care the least are the ones who need it the most.
Lol are you saying I don't deserve it?
Lol... That sounded bad. It was more of a reply to your "people don't care about me so I don't care about them" comment. ;)
Ah. Thanks for the advice. （＾_＾）
There is too much beauty in this world (and much of it is found in people) to waste our time wallowing in the sorrow that is no doubt there as well. Life is a series of choices, and those choices define our path. We will all experience sorrow and pain, but it is what we decide to do with those experiences that matters. We get one chance. One life. There is so much to be done. Don't waste it.
-someone who cares
Skirts and dresses. When i was around 8 or so i was a bit of a tomboy and hated them XD now i absolutely love them! :)
Infidelity. Years ago, a woman picked me up on the rebound after a horrible breakup, she was seeing me behind her boyfriends's back. At the time I decided her ethics were her business.
She left him for me, we eventually had a child together and married. Now years later, she has me living in exile on the couch, is emotionally abusive and ignores me with respect to intimacy.
The memory of our beginnings haunts me - I lay here on the couch, knowing that this is what the last guy felt like. I don't think she's actually cheating on me, but I know damned well she WOULD.
My new opinion: Infidelity is a game that has no winner.
You need to start making some changes before changes start making themselves.
Hopefully she isn't cheating, but she's already shown you she has the potential to do so...also work on rebuilding the intimacy...
Selfless love - there's no such thing. If there is, I haven't found it yet.
Rarely is anyone 100% with themselves. That's part of being human.
Love? That too selfless? Weren't we all naive to believe that. I blame movies and those few exceptional people who set these high standards.
Illegal immigration. When I was younger I didn't care and thought "come one, come all!". Now that I am older, I see the adverse affects and am against it.
Religion. I used to think it was a pretty bad thing. Now I think it's a horrendously bad thing.
I turned from a religious Muslim to an agnostic.
That musicians have a brain.
That men dont gossip.
they just lie, lie, lie
Women lie, men lie, women lie, men lie..,
Lol.. yes everybody lies.
True, but women tell the biggest lies
That love doesnt exists...i used to believe that it exists but people just use each other until they find someone else..its a game of use and throw.
Yes. Human beings treat each other like garbage. The sooner you realize this the happier you would be in life.
True love is the love God gives to his servants. He is more caring and loving than any care or love ull ever recieve. What we should all do is love Him back and surender to Him 💗
So kill yourself for god is what your implying? No thanks. I'm happy being a infidel and blasphimer. Helenic in case you were wondering.
Surrender urself as in whatever good i recieve i am willing to accept and whatever bad i will accept also because i know that He knows what is best for me and doesnt do anything without a reason
Ah. That's sounds more appealing but ill pass.
U see once u accept that this life is only a pathway to the next, and that there are two ways to go from there, either heaven or hell, then u too will give urself to God, saying my only goal is to please Him for my place in heaven. Never take away my life nor anyone else's, that is the job of Him
Your idea of God sounds like a slave owner.
We are only here to worship Him. We are slaves but not how u would imagine it. He is so giving its incredible. He gave us eyes with them we see the beauty of this universe, a nose to smell with feet to walk on etc. If u were to count how many blessings we have from Him it would be impossible. Oxygen, sand, hunny bees, water,,,,, He loves us more than ou rmothers would ever love us, He's loving compationate protective caring. If ure looking for true love its the love that God gives us. We as muslims believe that if we do good now we will be granted paradise later and who doesnt want that ?! So technically not slavery like weve learnt in school because we get granted the best gift - PARADISE
The joy of nothingness
Aging. The waters look a lot more turbulent when you're in that boat.
Me too. It's funny this one goes both ways.
the fact that it does go both ways indicates a spectrum of thought on the topic in society. What's deeper is why we recognize it at all.
Like how it's legal to kill someone inside the uterus, but once they come out it's illegal. smh
we kill inocent civilians all the time in our wars?a fetus is not a human being but some people believe all kinds of nonsense!
It's not okay to kill any innocent person, and that includes babies, if people can't handle the outcome of sex THEY SHOULDN'T BE HAVING SEX!!!
I think you have seen too many wars...
A fetus is a human being thats still growing. The only difference between a dead fetus and a casualty of war is that the fetus never had the chance to experience life outside of the womb.
a fetus is not a baby ,are U a biologist?your sound as ridiculous as a creationist!
There doing us a favor by getting that abortion.
Unlike your parents, right?
My parents failed to prevent the population and so did yours. Only thing I can do now is live and you too. I'm glad you agree with me.
What your doing here is presenting a paper tiger .Applying logic simply destroys your argument .So if I never existed why would I fear being aborted.A fetus has no more awareness of itself than an earth worm .You think with your emotions & block your ability to think with solid detached thinking .
Well said and paper tiger I remember that from critical thinking class.
So because a fetus is unaware its mother plans to kill them prior to their birth, its okay to kill them? What about newborns? They don't have the capacity or the awareness to understand or feel fear and death either.
@vamp ....>your very silly "a fetus is unaware its mother plans to kill them",its a fetus ,At some point it resembles a dinosour more than a baby!,I'm not emotionally attached with this as you have become.With all of the people in the world ,abused ,starving,living in oppresion,we seem to hate the poor for being "lazy"& countless other things that shouild be addressed & U choose to be a fetus rights activist .
I just think that people should be more responsible for their actions in the bedroom. Instead of opting to kill unwanted babies, stop having reckless sex. At a minimum, men and women who don't plan to have kids should be using 2 forms of birth control. With all the available non baby killing methods, abortion should be the very last one. And only in verified rape cases or life and death situations.
Unlike you, I've experienced pregnancy and love my children and I can tell you that you are dead wrong that in the uterus they don't experience feelings, when the sound of my husbands or my voice will wake the baby and cause her to wiggle around, or the sound of certain songs, while other things they wouldn't respond to at all, clearly you've missed that joy.
Just like its legal to kill someone on your own home in some states..
My kind of girl! Wanna get married? lol!
lol already did : )
