Can someone be a magnet for trouble
I'm the sort of person who gets into trouble no matter what I do
Like if I'm walking down the street somehow I end up in some sort of argument be it with a passer by a cyclist or motorist
Same thing if I'm driving
At work every single problem seems to find me not sure why
If I take a loan something will go wrong
If I buy something it breaks and I have to take it back and all hell breaks lose in the shop
In another example I got stopped by the police for being on the phone
Got into an argument with the police officer
Went to court
Had my phone records that showed I wasn't on the phone
The court wouldn't accept them and took it as my word over the policeman
That just convinced I am a magnet for trouble
No one could get themselves into trouble as much as me
What the fuck could cause it
I'm think someone up there has got it in for me

Re: Can someone be a magnet for trouble
OP, bad company corrupts good moral character.

If you are surrounding yourself with people who have poor ethics, moral standards or are tend to enjoy evil things, then yeah, you'll probably notice your life going down the wrong path. sometimes people are good at pretending to be 'good', but you can always tell by the fruits they produce in life and their own misfortunes. people that seem to constantly be in a 'bad way' are that way for a reason and more than likely they brought it on with poor life choices and decisions. Misery loves company, so its often the case that they try to bring yo down with their sinking ship.

Sometimes you need to take a hard look at the people in your life and decide if what they have to offer is good. Its not easy sometimes, as even family members can be poor influences.

I just want to change things let someone else deal with all the shit that seems to head for me

This is the thing I'm worried about I can see it ending badly
The way I'm heading is only going to end up in either me or someone else in serious shit
but I can't seem to change it
I leave the house in the morning and try my best to turn the other cheek so to speak if something happens I will let it go be it driving or whatever but in the end I end up with a load of stuff problems mounting and mounting till in the end I see red and that's it all hell breaks loose
And believe me this happens if not on a daily basis at least every other day

Re: Can someone be a magnet for trouble
It could be worse,

There was a story in the news last year.

Up north in Oklahoma, there was a tornado. The guy was driving in his truck when he saw it. He pulled over and ran to the ditch on the side of the highway. The tornado passed over him but blew his truck into the ditch. The truck pinned his legs so he couldn't move. He was thankful that he survived but then the flood waters came and drowned him.

Re: Can someone be a magnet for trouble
It's called The Law of attraction!
The law of attraction is the name given to the belief that "like attracts like" and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results For example, if a person opened an envelope expecting to see a bill, then according to the law of attraction, the envelope would "confirm" those thoughts and contain a bill when opened. A person who decided to instead expect a cheque might, under the same law, find a cheque instead of a bill
Although there are some cases where positive or negative attitudes can produce corresponding results (principally the placebo and nocebo effects), there is no scientific basis to the law of attraction.

Re: Can someone be a magnet for trouble
LOL... your church story gives us a pretty good clue.

You're not allowed to knock someone on their arse for yelling at you.

Sounds to me like you have a short temper, and a difficult time with social interaction. (like explaining something to a cop without pissing him off lol)

Regardless, your life is directed by your actions and reactions. Maybe you could learn to do both better.

i know someone like the op
the person i know is the most down to earth and level headed person you could meet but its like something can just set him off like u flip a switch and u really really dont want to be the one to have set him off
the funny thing is he can calm down as quickly as he loses it
i have seen it on a couple of occasions and it can be quite scary
you have to actually see it to believe it
i think its genetical or a mental problem

Re: Can someone be a magnet for trouble
No matter what everyone else is saying, the answer is yes, some people will get in trouble no matter how they try to avoid it. You have to make a conscious effort to stay out of trouble and it is not easy.

I have had the same problems all my life just like your experiences, your not alone. But there is not an easy answer for you other than you need to think things through more than others maybe.

I did not used to believe in such things as luck. But, i cannot explain how some people just fall ass backwards in what can only be explained as good luck because they did absolutely nothing to earn what they have, but yet they got it. Like the person who plays the lottery for the first time in their life and only buys one ticket and WINS!

I have seen and heard about these "lucky" people all my life and have wondered why? I have always lived my life and tried to be fair and honest with people. (sometimes too honest)

I actually stopped going out years ago because i would mind my own business and there would always be some asshole that would gravitate towards me. I never put up with any of their shit, and fights would ensue. I have never been the type to back down. If i would have turned tail, yes it would have avoided the problem, but it would leave me feeling like a puss and that wasn't an option.rant

Many people are going to say i should have been the bigger man and walked away. But in my opinion there are too many people that do that today! That's why we live in such a cowardly two-faced society.

This of course is just one kind of trouble that would follow me. Anyway, just be very aware of your decisions, and always realize that anger will cost you more than it's worth.

I really dont think it works like that. In fact i've noticed in my 30 years here the opposite seems to be true. You think positive u end up in a negative situation. Sometimes mere minutes after u made a commitment to make positive changes in ur life. This is why Im content with expecting the worse, because positive thinking for some ppl. only leads to very negative outcome.

Re: Can someone be a magnet for trouble
It certainly seems so. I knew a trouble magnet. He would always end up in fights. Big feature of a trouble magnet is anger management issues. Something any sane person would ignore, they don't. When they run into someone else like themselves it escalates into a fight.

I'd tried to help this guy out, a bright guy. But gave up eventually. He kept fucking up big time in really stupid ways.
