    I dont know if its just today or any random day but sometimes I feel like no matter what I do or say it doesnt make a difference. I guess it might be impatience for somethings or frustrations with others. Making relationships work with friends or family, going to gym and trying to keep that routine, or even just going to work is tiring. completely random forum topic but I just wanted to get this off my chest. add if you want, agree, disagree, whatever...

    It's not a matter of whether I agree or disagree. icon_wink.gif


    It's a matter of whether or not I can say something that makes a difference. So I'll try.
    Being patient with yourself is not an easy thing to do at times, so be patient about not feeling patient. That also extends to feeling frustrated. I got involved with organizations that helped people out, to work out my frustrations, lol.
    It may feeling tiring, but so does working out. I think we need our emotional muscles as much as our fleshy ones.


    warmly,

    -Doug

    I want to make note to what many had a hundred years ago. We have our challenges, but I know my ancestors had it far more challenging. I say...be thankful and don't let it get you down. Most of the world eats on less than a buck a day! WE HAVE IT MADE

    I always consider the fact that I could have it much worse. Im happy I have what I have and who I can share my time with. Its just one of those days where I ask myself why Im doing what Im doing or why I choose to have the people in my life that I do. I think I spend more time helping others with their problems when I should be fixing mine but I leave myself on the backburner. I was venting icon_smile.gif

    Were you planning on writing that before you saw my post and this was mere coincidence? what you wrote makes alot of sense. sometimes we tend to think of life in shorter terms and we want what we want now as opposed to later.
    4. I'm in despair. No one can tell. It's easy to pretend that everything is normal.
    its actually not that easy and I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve.
    trust me, im not suicidal, just need to get my priorities straight. sometimes exploring out of our comfort zone might help realize what we take for granted and what might make us (me) happy.
    thanks for sharing alan.

    "Permanently" is a long time. You just never know what tomorrow may bring. In the mean time, make the best of life. You can if you choose to.

    Actually, I had written much of that post either earlier today, or in the last day or so. Your post had the same flavor, so I decided to just create the thread so that if somebody ever chooses to do a search in the RJ archive...it's there.

    I'm glad that there was something in my Paid in Full Lesson that could help you.

    There is no purpose to life, it is just something to get through (and have some fun in the mean time ofc icon_wink.gif ) in order to reach complete freedom in death. I have goals of course that I want to reach, but they are a mere pastime. The results that I get from this are an added bonus, but not the reason I set them. So to reply to the OP, try to set some goals where you know that the process towards these goals is something you are going to enjoy a lot. If you feel your work out is getting tiring, then try to mix it up and find new ways to get the fun back in your work out. Don't think of any purpose related to them, just try to enjoy yourself. It's all about YOU and what YOU enjoy. There are of course some restrictions and rules set by society where you may want to adjust yourself to (i.e working).

    Life can be a tiresome experience, if you value it to highly. Don't take it so seriously.

    That sucks man. I hope you can move out of the country or ideally get accepted in your own country for who you are. Remember you're not alone in that situation and it makes me realise in what a fortunate position I am.
