Re: I'm barely holding on.
Middle aged IT worker.

I see the bad in everything.
I see the lies and boogeymen people create to elevate themselves to hero status.
Its the marvelization of society.
If you can make demographic X evil that equates yourself to hero status.
Everyone is practicing it now.
Everything is so fucked up now.

Im not seeing the point to being miserable anymore.
At work I'm chasing an ever smaller piece of pie.

You pretty much have to become a pathological liar to advance in corporate America.

A fair days wage for a days work was probably always a lie too.
Wife's head is buried in TV fantasy soap operas.
Somehow its my responsibility to provide a lavish lifestyle even though she's more educated.

That's the hoot about American education right now.
Women have all these opportunities to become over-educated and no social pressure to do anything with them.

Got a doctorate, then start pumping out kids. just finished med school, you deserve a man to take care of you.

Its fucked because I don't know one relationship that has survived the woman being the primary bread winner.

If your a man and your wife makes more than you. You're looked down upon. period. even if its behind your back.

Im so tired. i don't know ho much longer im hanging in there.
Not any time soon, not going to let the dog down.

But i'm not going to grow old in this country. I see the hate in these kids eyes.
It's going to be much worse here in 10+ years.

The globalists have been playing the long game for decades.

America will be like that torched restaurant in Goodfellas.

They were signing away our futures with their right hand while waiving a flag in the left. always remember nobility largely only exists in fiction. Its the lie that propels society forward.

Re: I'm barely holding on.
War on a drastic scale involving everyone will at least bring the majority of the populace down to a level playing field. I suspect it will happen much sooner than everyone thinks. Perhaps with "everyone" just barely holding on we will all start to realize we need each other and start providing compassion. If not then we all eventually die and the world simply moves on without humans. I personally am of the opinion that world war is very very close to popping off. Once this happens the entire economy will most likely stall or outright cease to function. People will be more concerned with survival than being forced to slave for a paycheck. I am starting to think that the President is angling, or being forced into declaring this war.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 59404040


I agree with you, but I believe people are far too self absorbed to even realize what's really going on. I'm at the point that I don't care and welcome war. Something has to happen to affect change.

The USA is over. Our so called government has turned into a self serving dictatorship and clearly doesn't care about the tax paying individuals who support them financially.

I've had enough. I too am a middle aged IT worker and see what's happening very clearly. I don't want to be a part of what's going on. I don't want to contribute my life time and personal resources any longer. It's simply not worth it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 72358089


WWIII could start as early as next week Wednesday. If there was ever a time to make peace with the Lord it's now!

Blow the trumpet at the time of the New Moon, At the full moon, on our solemn feast day." [Psalm 81:3] The 1st Day of the 1st Month of the Jewish New Year is a Solemn Feast Day. The devil has been working hard to make sure we don't know what Day this is, so that we won't be able to watch for the Lord's coming on the correct Day of First-fruits! The 1st Day of the New Year starts at Sunset on the evening of a Full Moon. This Year the New Moon Day started on the 11th of April 2017. This New Year's Day started at Sunset of the previous day. The Jewish Calendar most Christians have been relying on, except for the Creator's Calendar, started the Jewish New Year about two weeks earlier than they should have. No wonder the Rapture didn't occur on First-fruits when we all expected it to! The correct Date of First-fruits, according to the Creator's Calendar falls on Wednesday the 26th of April 2017. May the Lord find all of us ready when He comes. Amen. [link to www.thecreatorscalendar.com]
 Quoting: April2017Rapture 74709295


The 7 Day countdown to Judgement Day begins from 20th of April 2017. This will be the Day the Lord is going to seal up in His love all those who will be partaking in the Rapture on the 26th of April 2017, the correct Day of First-fruits. All the Lord is looking for when He comes is His love in our hearts. Our number one job in life is to store up His love in our hearts. We do this by doing good to our household, to the brethren and to the people we come in contact with each day. When we refrain from doing harm to others, love from the Lord flows into our hearts to express loving-kindness towards them. This is how we prepare ourselves for the Lord's coming.

Re: I'm barely holding on.
You need to jump.

Seriously.

Find something you are passionate about that may mean a little risk and DO IT.

You are going to die one day and it sounds like you are going to have a lot of regrets.

Imagine dying -- what would you have done differently?
Then do it.

ALSO

There are kids as we speak dying on cancer wards. Elderly who need someone to read to them.

If you think your life is bad -- find someone who is REALLY suffering and make a difference. Not your dim wit relatives. Find people who NEED you and would APPRECIATE you.

It will change your attitude. And you need a different attitude.

Good luck.

Excellent post OP. Please stay here and let's chat.

For one thing, the globalists are the problem. They will push their agenda even if it means WW3. I will not submit and neither should you. I was in a similar situation a few years back -- married, kids, 9-5 job, providing a lavish life.

Wife and I decided to sell our expensive home in NJ and move to Florida. BEST decision ever. First, we made out bandits on the house sale we managed to sell in 2011 when both of us lost our jobs. We could buy 4 homes in Florida for what we sold our house for in NJ. Second, property taxes are 1/4th what they were in NJ.

Now, we work less and spend more time with the kids and we love life. Until the day comes when the globalists take over, we're going to live the good life. Salt Life.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 59404040


Fat chance of that. Families will be divided.

I get in arguments with my nephew, who is some kind of psychotic weasel. I have always been very generous with him and his sisters since they were small.

A few yeast ago, he was an adult man living in his mother's house, after she had moved out. Living for free, and mostly unemployed.

He ran the house into the ground. Every inch of it was caked with filth and filled with more flies than you can imagine. Almost all of the windows were broken and the doors were falling off their hinges. Water from the pipes was leaking into the dank, and musty basement, which was full of wet clothes on the floor and all sorts of garbage. The bathroom was filthy and completely trashed, with a broken sink and a rotten hole, more than a foot wide right in front of the toilet. The house should have been condemned.

At my own expense, nearly five thousand dollars, and thousands of hours of labor, I managed to clean the house, fix the bathroom, the leaky pipes, the windows including installing new storm windows, the yard, demolish and rebuild the front porch, and a host of other things, too numerous to mention.

Before I left, I let him have a lot of my stuff, including an expensive stereo system, and a large flat-screen TV, among other things like tools, leather jackets, a table saw, etc.

While I was working on the house, he offered no help, and I was constantly having to clean up after him and his parties. He spent most of his time drunk and stoned. He never even thanked me, and started crying about me paying rent. In a rotten little house that couldn't even legally be rented, where I slept in a large closet sized room in the back while he slept in the master bedroom, I paid him $200.00 per month, but I would have preferred to use the money for materials. I had to quit working when I ran out of money for materials, and I spent the next for months sorting through my stuff, and selling what I couldn't take with me.

Everyone knew for all those months that I was planning to leave, and packing and repacking my car to see how much I could bring with me. I had to leave some things that I couldn't bring with, so I packed them in boxes, ready for shipping, and I told my nephew that I would either send for them when I got a place, or return and pick them up.

When I returned half a year later, my nephew acted distressed and weird, and started accusing me of stealing his stuff. He had to paw through every box I removed, but none of his stuff was in it.

Then he started accusing me of stealing a book of his that he couldn't find. A stupid, little, worthless book! I told him I didn't take it, but he kept insisting I did. I told him that someone had put books that were on shelves in the living room into the basement, and it was probably there. No, he kept insisting I stole it, and he was telling his mother and everyone I stole his book. For months, he kept bitching at me about stealing his book, and when I asked him if he looked in the basement, he claimed he had, and it wasn't there.

A few months ago, I looked around in the basement and found his book. Vindicated with proof, and does anyone even imagine that the very next thing I said to him was that I found his book in the basement where I said it probably was? His reaction was surprising. He just shrugged and said "oh". There was no apology for slandering me.

I am currently sleeping on my sister's couch and planning to go homeless, since I can't find a job. While I had a very wretched, minimum wage job, which didn't pay me enough to find a place of my own, and which was most of last year, I paid my sister $240.00 per month, a third of the rent, to sleep on the couch, and all along, I did most of the housework.

So now I can't pay rent, as I sort out my stuff and try to figure out what I need and what I can carry when I go. I'm still buying my own food and doing most of the house work, and trying not to impose on my sister. I never asked for compensation for the $5000.00 in materials I spent on her house, or any compensation for the thousands of hours of very exhausting and dirty labor on her house.

Yet, after I lost my job, my nephew showed up and started telling me to get a job and contribute. He was talking like the big, swinging dick and lord of the manner, and saying that everyone takes advantage of his mother and I was being a freeloader. Did I need to remind him that he didn't own the whole house he was living in for free? He was the only person present who was still taking advantage of his mother, as he had for many years, while destroying her house.

He was impervious to logic and reason. Nothing I said to him even registered. He just rocked back in his chair, grinning at me, rubbing his fingers together, and saying I had to pay cash.

He really seemed to be acting like his mother's pimp.

Last weekend, we had another argument when I found out he had been telling lies about the book. He had been telling everyone he found the book in a box that I was trying to sneak out of the house with, and he cleverly contrived to ask me about it, and I then reluctantly confessed that I found it. My sister apparently even believed the fabrication. She is not that stupid.

We got in another argument and he recounted his completely delusional version of events. He claimed I had just up and disappeared without telling anyone, and that I had assured him that I would take care of the house and everything. It was completely strange and delusional. I now believe he is a completely deranged psychopath. Something is very very wrong with his brain. Too much drugs? Too much booze? I don't know. Maybe he is simply evil. I have observed that he likes to gaslight people - just about everyone. It is no wonder that his roommate left all of a sudden without notice, at a time when he kept telling me I could kick out his roommate. I had to keep telling him I didn't want to kick out his roommate, and that I liked him. He was a cool guy. His roommate never told me he was leaving, but he left behind many clues and messages that he thought my nephew was evil - really and genuinely evil.

I want to get as far away from that incestuous band of lunatics as I can.

If things are as bad in other families - it is getting very bad.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 41921629


I can tell by the work you did on your sister's house that you obviously have skills that you can market.

You need to distance yourself from your nephew because he's a troubled soul (narcissist) and bad for your mental health. You need to have an income so take a superintendent job or something along those lines if you have to. You write intelligently and you sound like a morally upright person so there's no reason you shouldn't be able to earn an honest living and live your life on your own terms.

You may want to ask yourself why you're in the boat you're in and what part of your own past has put you there. Don't let yourself down any longer. It's time to move on with your life and find people that won't take advantage of you or treat you like dirt.

Good luck and i hope your family can work through these issues and you can still love each other after you can distance yourself from all that drama I just read about.

Re: I'm barely holding on.
War on a drastic scale involving everyone will at least bring the majority of the populace down to a level playing field. I suspect it will happen much sooner than everyone thinks. Perhaps with "everyone" just barely holding on we will all start to realize we need each other and start providing compassion. If not then we all eventually die and the world simply moves on without humans. I personally am of the opinion that world war is very very close to popping off. Once this happens the entire economy will most likely stall or outright cease to function. People will be more concerned with survival than being forced to slave for a paycheck. I am starting to think that the President is angling, or being forced into declaring this war.

I agree with you, but I believe people are far too self absorbed to even realize what's really going on. I'm at the point that I don't care and welcome war. Something has to happen to affect change.

The USA is over. Our so called government has turned into a self serving dictatorship and clearly doesn't care about the tax paying individuals who support them financially.

I've had enough. I too am a middle aged IT worker and see what's happening very clearly. I don't want to be a part of what's going on. I don't want to contribute my life time and personal resources any longer. It's simply not worth it.

Re: I'm barely holding on.
Middle aged IT worker. I see the bad in everything. I see the lies and boogeymen people create to elevate themselves to hero status. Its the marvelization of society. If you can make demographic X evil that equates yourself to hero status. Everyone is practicing it now. Everything is so fucked up now. Im not seeing the point to being miserable anymore. At work I'm chasing an ever smaller piece of pie. You pretty much have to become a pathological liar to advance in corporate America. A fair days wage for a days work was probably always a lie too. Wife's head is buried in TV fantasy soap operas. Somehow its my responsibility to provide a lavish lifestyle even though she's more educated. That's the hoot about American education right now. Women have all these opportunities to become over-educated and no social pressure to do anything with them. Got a doctorate, then start pumping out kids. just finished med school, you deserve a man to take care of you. Its fucked because I don't know one relationship that has survived the woman being the primary bread winner. If your a man and your wife makes more than you. You're looked down upon. period. even if its behind your back.

Im so tired. i don't know ho much longer im hanging in there. Not any time soon, not going to let the dog down. But i'm not going to grow old in this country. I see the hate in these kids eyes. It's going to be much worse here in 10+ years. The globalists have been playing the long game for decades. America will be like that torched restaurant in Goodfellas. They were signing away our futures with their right hand while waiving a flag in the left. always remember nobility largely only exists in fiction. Its the lie that propels society forward.

Re: I'm barely holding on.
We are so reliant on electricity as a society that when the collapse comes, it will be the most difficult time to survive in the history of mankind.

People today are so self absorbed that it's inevitable it's all going to come crumbling down.

Watch an interview with defectors from North Korea. They will acknowledge that everyone else is so busy thinking about work, school, getting ahead that they are unhappy.

They were more happy under threat of death in North Korea with isolated communities that did care for each other and everyone knew each other's names, jobs, hobbies.

My German grandma told me stories of WW2 when they would eat rotten meat. They had a hook to perform a self-abortion if necessary. They hid in the basement to avoid bombs. They stole food out of farmer's fields. The farmer hired them on as a gesture of goodwill. Brothers dead on the Russian front. Worked to the bone from childhood.

If anything, I can appreciate the naivety and ignorance of the world today.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 59404040


Fat chance of that. Families will be divided.

I get in arguments with my nephew, who is some kind of psychotic weasel. I have always been very generous with him and his sisters since they were small.

A few yeast ago, he was an adult man living in his mother's house, after she had moved out. Living for free, and mostly unemployed.

He ran the house into the ground. Every inch of it was caked with filth and filled with more flies than you can imagine. Almost all of the windows were broken and the doors were falling off their hinges. Water from the pipes was leaking into the dank, and musty basement, which was full of wet clothes on the floor and all sorts of garbage. The bathroom was filthy and completely trashed, with a broken sink and a rotten hole, more than a foot wide right in front of the toilet. The house should have been condemned.

At my own expense, nearly five thousand dollars, and thousands of hours of labor, I managed to clean the house, fix the bathroom, the leaky pipes, the windows including installing new storm windows, the yard, demolish and rebuild the front porch, and a host of other things, too numerous to mention.

Before I left, I let him have a lot of my stuff, including an expensive stereo system, and a large flat-screen TV, among other things like tools, leather jackets, a table saw, etc.

While I was working on the house, he offered no help, and I was constantly having to clean up after him and his parties. He spent most of his time drunk and stoned. He never even thanked me, and started crying about me paying rent. In a rotten little house that couldn't even legally be rented, where I slept in a large closet sized room in the back while he slept in the master bedroom, I paid him $200.00 per month, but I would have preferred to use the money for materials. I had to quit working when I ran out of money for materials, and I spent the next for months sorting through my stuff, and selling what I couldn't take with me.

Everyone knew for all those months that I was planning to leave, and packing and repacking my car to see how much I could bring with me. I had to leave some things that I couldn't bring with, so I packed them in boxes, ready for shipping, and I told my nephew that I would either send for them when I got a place, or return and pick them up.

When I returned half a year later, my nephew acted distressed and weird, and started accusing me of stealing his stuff. He had to paw through every box I removed, but none of his stuff was in it.

Then he started accusing me of stealing a book of his that he couldn't find. A stupid, little, worthless book! I told him I didn't take it, but he kept insisting I did. I told him that someone had put books that were on shelves in the living room into the basement, and it was probably there. No, he kept insisting I stole it, and he was telling his mother and everyone I stole his book. For months, he kept bitching at me about stealing his book, and when I asked him if he looked in the basement, he claimed he had, and it wasn't there.

A few months ago, I looked around in the basement and found his book. Vindicated with proof, and does anyone even imagine that the very next thing I said to him was that I found his book in the basement where I said it probably was? His reaction was surprising. He just shrugged and said "oh". There was no apology for slandering me.

I am currently sleeping on my sister's couch and planning to go homeless, since I can't find a job. While I had a very wretched, minimum wage job, which didn't pay me enough to find a place of my own, and which was most of last year, I paid my sister $240.00 per month, a third of the rent, to sleep on the couch, and all along, I did most of the housework.

So now I can't pay rent, as I sort out my stuff and try to figure out what I need and what I can carry when I go. I'm still buying my own food and doing most of the house work, and trying not to impose on my sister. I never asked for compensation for the $5000.00 in materials I spent on her house, or any compensation for the thousands of hours of very exhausting and dirty labor on her house.

Yet, after I lost my job, my nephew showed up and started telling me to get a job and contribute. He was talking like the big, swinging dick and lord of the manner, and saying that everyone takes advantage of his mother and I was being a freeloader. Did I need to remind him that he didn't own the whole house he was living in for free? He was the only person present who was still taking advantage of his mother, as he had for many years, while destroying her house.

He was impervious to logic and reason. Nothing I said to him even registered. He just rocked back in his chair, grinning at me, rubbing his fingers together, and saying I had to pay cash.

He really seemed to be acting like his mother's pimp.

Last weekend, we had another argument when I found out he had been telling lies about the book. He had been telling everyone he found the book in a box that I was trying to sneak out of the house with, and he cleverly contrived to ask me about it, and I then reluctantly confessed that I found it. My sister apparently even believed the fabrication. She is not that stupid.

We got in another argument and he recounted his completely delusional version of events. He claimed I had just up and disappeared without telling anyone, and that I had assured him that I would take care of the house and everything. It was completely strange and delusional. I now believe he is a completely deranged psychopath. Something is very very wrong with his brain. Too much drugs? Too much booze? I don't know. Maybe he is simply evil. I have observed that he likes to gaslight people - just about everyone. It is no wonder that his roommate left all of a sudden without notice, at a time when he kept telling me I could kick out his roommate. I had to keep telling him I didn't want to kick out his roommate, and that I liked him. He was a cool guy. His roommate never told me he was leaving, but he left behind many clues and messages that he thought my nephew was evil - really and genuinely evil.

I want to get as far away from that incestuous band of lunatics as I can.

If things are as bad in other families - it is getting very bad.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 41921629


WOW ^^^ what a dysfunctional horrible family but you allowed things - you martyred yourself working hard and spending your money on that house - even giving things to this person who was lazy and using substances - did you expect some miracle here? Some giant form of gratitude, a parade held in your honor? These people are users -
And for some reason you were co-dependant to that behavior.

YOU TEACH WHAT YOU ACCEPT.

I hate to sound cold, or cruel but seriously - we teach what we accept in life - and we tell ourselves stories so we really don't have to do that hard work - which could include leaving the family (the tribe) and going out in the world in a kind of self banishment. But look at what you wrote - is any of this healthy?

You have ONE life to live (to your current conscious awareness) are you going to waste it meddling in downtrodden human drama?

The biggest advice I can give to most people - is MOVE - move away from dysfunctional family - move away from weak over competitive environments where you can't get a job - go - research - make a change.

MAKE A CHANGE.
 Quoting: Starbird


your answer to all that is just "move" away, well Einstein if moving was all that simple task as you make it out too be everyone would do it now wouldn't they? chit cost
money, which point most people barley have enough.

exactly how the creators of money intended it to be
