Humble yourself. Submit to the Most High. There is nothing wrong with going to a Government home to regroup. That's what it was originally designed for. Go back to school and get a trade. Giving up is the coward way out.

Many of us get where you are coming from. Your story is the standard and not the deviation. The US has been falling apart morally, socially an economically. i'm 60 and it's only within the last 5 years i've known any security at all.

ask yourself:
have you lived through war?
plague?
famine?
totalitarian government?

Are you:
relatively healthy?
have family?

THose last 2 are the most important. I really hope things turn around for you. We need all the positivity we can get in the world. You can either contribute or be a drain on it.

Re: STICK ME WITH THE FORK I'M DONE.too old to tired to fight anymore
OP, I understand the tiredness of getting older -- especially in the cold winter months here in the Midwest! I have been doing the Five Tibetan Rites (the Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth) every day for a couple of weeks. I keep careful track and put a star on each day of the calendar I do the Rites (they are five simple exercises). This has given me new purpose and joy in life. You have to fight the tendency to just give up as you get older. I know . . . I am in my 60s! I just didn't want to get old before my time, and keeping my body fit and flexible seemed to be the best solution to a host of problems. I am lonely and have no partner. I think you're lucky to have companionship! Good luck to you and remember to always be grateful even if you don't feel that way. And join a 12 step support group -- if you have a tendency to take care of other people and not yourself, find an An-Anon meeting and start going to face to face group meetings. You'll meet friends and transform your life.

Re: STICK ME WITH THE FORK I'M DONE.too old to tired to fight anymore
I don't get it, I have worked my ass off all my life. I have been thankful. I have appreciated everything in my life that came my way, and I always thought there was a God. I don't know anymore. I actually appreciated the hard times because I knew it would make me grow. I'm tired of growing. I'm tired of fighting. I'm trying to relax, but I can't be at peace. I just want to coast for a while, knowing my bills will be paid and we will have food, and the grandkids can come over and we can go out to dinner and enjoy each other's company. But I can't even afford that. Because after this month, were going to have to get in the government housing or something.

I really don't know anymore.

I don't believe in religion, but I know that there's some kind of a higher source and I think that it just likes to let us think that it cares about us. I think it's just a way for us to keep plugging on and putting out energy to be devoured by it. It gives us enough just to think that it's good, just enough to think that it's there to help and support us. It gives us just enough, and then it takes it all away!

I've gone one step forward 2 steps backwards most of my life. No matter what career or profession I was in I was always just getting by, never could afford to buy a house. Never.

I've had a couple different partners in my life and always ended up supporting them somehow one way or another, and even though that changed about 12 years ago now I'm back to square one. Yep. Supporting him. Oh woe is me, what the hell. Where is my retirement? Where is my partner to help me when I needed? Nowhere. Where is God to help me when I needed? Nowhere.


.I've talked to God till Im blue in the face. I have expressed gratitude. I have expressed anxiety and consternation. I have expressed intentions to carry through on some of my most heartfelt ideas and plans only to have them crash and burn in front of my face.


Nobody has to respond to this stupid thread. In fact, I really don't care. Once I post this am going away anyway. I might come back in a day or 2 to see if anybody cared to even read it. But right now I need to go find a quiet spot, but myself. I'm so tempted to just leave this world. I really am. The only thing keeping here is the love of my family. But what is love when you're living like a pauper, you have nowhere to go, I am old to try and survive anymore?


I used to think positive, felt truly appreciative and happy.

No I don't have a chemical imbalance. No I am not depressed, at least not medically in the sense that somebody would want to put me on meds. I don't want them. I'm depressed because there is no God. I'm depressed because no matter how much effort I put into my endeavors, I am going backwards.


I just needed a place to vent. It doesn't matter whether its this forum or God, I'm going to get the same kind of response. It's all the same.

God promises what we need, not what we want.

Apostle Paul wasn’t married (because his wife would be in danger),

Paul probably was beheaded.

Apostle Peter was married, some believe he was crucified, but he asked

To be placed head down because he said he didn’t deserve to be

crucified like Jesus.

Many Christians had their property taken.

Job was a rich man, everything taken from him-

his property, his children, the respect of his “friends”,

and his health.

He got EVERYTHING BACK + more in his life.

Jesus gave up everything of this life- wealth, family,

offspring- But he said He would GAIN

MORE IN THE NEXT LIFE!

I have financial stress... perhaps not as severe as you...

I pray that your financial situation will improve.

I pray that your faith will continue and improve.

You would say "priceless!" and laugh in most times, but "worthless" and seriously not funny over-rides these days.

The last people who lived, knew or had anything organic and real or lives that at least started out worth living, will be gone soon. Artificiality and compulsory rationalization have replaced the homo veritas with erectus cibum artificialis. If you can't think how its "ok" there are 40 pills of different kinds of "ok" you can eat......because nobody can ferment a bucket of wine or boil it off like normal people and why talk to anybody unless you're gonna do sex with em?....the wine taps were shut off anyway, because wine is bad with some peoples ok pills.

But - "GO PLACIDLY amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. [U[And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."

I was running on fumes of hopeless and as of yesterday.....that may have started turning around? 20 years I have waited and worked for what I could get and I'm 55 and it might be time again for me to get something more worthwhile?

But ya can't win if ya don't play and life's chances are sure a lot better odds than the lottery (which doesn't hurt?)

Ah, we agree there, I think all organized religions are just about control.
You don’t need a church or specific religion.
 Quoting: MKPitBull

The false Christians use it as a control device.
The book promotes all flesh conceived on this earth will be alive at the start of the perfected version of this earth and they will all live forever. The flock grows by 100 children per couple before they are made immortal and enter the 'grandparent stage of eternal life.

How much doom and gloom and control is involved in that summation? I see it as a good reason to tell liars and murderers to go fuck themselves.

This is the first time I have ever replied to a thread. What you described is exactly what my life has been like. I too would like some peace as I coast out the rest of my days. I don't see that happening with all the turmoil that the Dems have created. They are slowly taking our rights away. It will be a sad state for this country in the coming years. It has me thinking of moving to out of here and live somewhere else. So...I feel your pain. I just hope we both can find that peace.

Well this is a tough road for many , I know. I myself have been ill half of my life and I am 62 now. Being disabled all those years mean I have nothing. Cannot work, I live in constant pain and take nerve pain meds and a strong pain medicine called Methadone. Been on this for twenty years. No money, constant pain, not much good to anyone but God makes it worth while. I wish that you could find a close friend in this time to talk to one on one in person. I know it can be a lonely time. Get out and help someone or visit an old person. They are truly the lonely people. No one wants to see them but they need us. They have so much to offer. This will energize you.

Purpose of this life is to meet God and decide if you want to spend eternity with Him .

God NEVER promised that here on Earth you will have easy life.. in fact if you are Christian you are much more screwed in this life... but thats ok. Jesus promised big reward if we believe in him. Even if someone kills you here then only your body will die. Spirit is eternal.

Jesus is the answer. Believe in Him, believe that His work on the cross washed up all your sins and soon you will be in Heaven.

Hi.

You don't think your time/life matters anymore? Okay.

Begin a serious exercise program for 20 - 30 minutes each day. Have a glass of water with you constantly. If exercising makes you want to grump, do it anyway. Remember, you're not happy anyway so you may as well be not happy and exercise to whatever capacity you can.

Prepare only healthy meals. Be serious about that. Challenge yourself to eat nutritiously on a penny hoarder budget. Take your vitamins.

Dress yourself nicely, wear something you don't ordinarily wear.

Now go somewhere you've never been. There's lots of inexpensive things you can do in your own area. Find one of them an check it out. Go alone or with someone.

Be as nice and considerate to your significant other as you can. Smile at him. Hug him.

Put fresh sheets on your bed. Subsequently, make your bedroom as attractive as you can. Go to bed.

Repeat every day for 5 days.

Now add in straightening up.... whatever, your drawers, your cupboards, wash your car, just do something you can turn around and see at least once each day.

Buy a seed packet or two and start some seeds..


This is what I forced myself to do after a tragic loss in my life. One foot in front of the other to try to build some joy in living. You don't have to wait until you're completely shattered to do it.

'Stick a fork in me' was something my dearest friend and I would say, usually we'd get ourselves howling with laughter. Her sudden death and the loss of my decades of her as my closest friend was what I had to get over, and I had to relearn resourcefulness and resilience as a tribute to her.

God Bless You.

Does "About to!" count?

Flashbuzz - but it should not be like that...I have 4 years to build better security and we both should have been done by 40 - it just went pear shaped, from on up to down for the putrefy.
Yes? Its common enough for a man to be 60 to grasp perch....but that is not normal for a fit society, niether is 70 year olds having to work and young people now need to know thats just cprporate raping everybody and getting away with heinous because of population. They need to remember standards of quality of human life and get back to it, not let dc get away with culling all off and telling survivors "here! You get unlimited bug butter card and free waste treatment water! How great!" Because they will try to? There was only a "good deal" after the depression because people were still smart and "reality" enough to expect it.
If the exstacy just says "aw its alright, i mean, bad stuff happened right?" Then thats exactly what they will get, jak shit.
After they've murdered as many of US as possible, the survivors need to be vigilant and YES? EXPECT A CUT? and a return to human quality life standards after all they have been-put-and-steered-through. GOOD prosperous times follow big bad ones, not "see? Now you HAVE to be ghey and live on coupons?"
Because dear millenials, when you should be getting jobs, houses and wages like great, great grandpa, they will totally weasel and screw you over if you let them and we might not be around to say "yes, they need to think you're not to be messed with anymore now" and you know how you have those broke parts where "authority loves you" and "what girls say is important?" and perk up, because thats how they have got you so far.
Hi.

You don't think your time/life matters anymore? Okay.

Begin a serious exercise program for 20 - 30 minutes each day. Have a glass of water with you constantly. If exercising makes you want to grump, do it anyway. Remember, you're not happy anyway so you may as well be not happy and exercise to whatever capacity you can.

Prepare only healthy meals. Be serious about that. Challenge yourself to eat nutritiously on a penny hoarder budget. Take your vitamins.

Dress yourself nicely, wear something you don't ordinarily wear.

Now go somewhere you've never been. There's lots of inexpensive things you can do in your own area. Find one of them an check it out. Go alone or with someone.

Be as nice and considerate to your significant other as you can. Smile at him. Hug him.

Put fresh sheets on your bed. Subsequently, make your bedroom as attractive as you can. Go to bed.

Repeat every day for 5 days.

Now add in straightening up.... whatever, your drawers, your cupboards, wash your car, just do something you can turn around and see at least once each day.

Buy a seed packet or two and start some seeds..


This is what I forced myself to do after a tragic loss in my life. One foot in front of the other to try to build some joy in living. You don't have to wait until you're completely shattered to do it.

'Stick a fork in me' was something my dearest friend and I would say, usually we'd get ourselves howling with laughter. Her sudden death and the loss of my decades of her as my closest friend was what I had to get over, and I had to relearn resourcefulness and resilience as a tribute to her.

God Bless You.

Re: STICK ME WITH THE FORK I'M DONE.too old to tired to fight anymore
I don't get it, I have worked my ass off all my life. I have been thankful. I have appreciated everything in my life that came my way, and I always thought there was a God. I don't know anymore. I actually appreciated the hard times because I knew it would make me grow. I'm tired of growing. I'm tired of fighting. I'm trying to relax, but I can't be at peace. I just want to coast for a while, knowing my bills will be paid and we will have food, and the grandkids can come over and we can go out to dinner and enjoy each other's company. But I can't even afford that. Because after this month, were going to have to get in the government housing or something.

I really don't know anymore.

I don't believe in religion, but I know that there's some kind of a higher source and I think that it just likes to let us think that it cares about us. I think it's just a way for us to keep plugging on and putting out energy to be devoured by it. It gives us enough just to think that it's good, just enough to think that it's there to help and support us. It gives us just enough, and then it takes it all away!

I've gone one step forward 2 steps backwards most of my life. No matter what career or profession I was in I was always just getting by, never could afford to buy a house. Never.

I've had a couple different partners in my life and always ended up supporting them somehow one way or another, and even though that changed about 12 years ago now I'm back to square one. Yep. Supporting him. Oh woe is me, what the hell. Where is my retirement? Where is my partner to help me when I needed? Nowhere. Where is God to help me when I needed? Nowhere.


.I've talked to God till Im blue in the face. I have expressed gratitude. I have expressed anxiety and consternation. I have expressed intentions to carry through on some of my most heartfelt ideas and plans only to have them crash and burn in front of my face.


Nobody has to respond to this stupid thread. In fact, I really don't care. Once I post this am going away anyway. I might come back in a day or 2 to see if anybody cared to even read it. But right now I need to go find a quiet spot, but myself. I'm so tempted to just leave this world. I really am. The only thing keeping here is the love of my family. But what is love when you're living like a pauper, you have nowhere to go, I am old to try and survive anymore?


I used to think positive, felt truly appreciative and happy.

No I don't have a chemical imbalance. No I am not depressed, at least not medically in the sense that somebody would want to put me on meds. I don't want them. I'm depressed because there is no God. I'm depressed because no matter how much effort I put into my endeavors, I am going backwards.


I just needed a place to vent. It doesn't matter whether its this forum or God, I'm going to get the same kind of response. It's all the same.
 Quoting: CrimsonBleu



So you blame God when things don't go your way.

Believing isn't actual belief unless you walk it.

You obviously haven't.

Stop blaming God for your own failures and the failures of the world.

Get creative, get an RV or a tiny home and spend some time learning about God before you blame Him for all your "woes."

Yeah coming to the realization that isn't that God probably isn't real (religion definitely isn't) was easily the hardest few years of my life. It sucks there's no way to sugarcoat it. Sorry OP...

If anyone wishes to find his life, First, You must do the will of God the father. that requires you to surrender your will in this life.


Than, He will send the spirit of truth teach you all things. after that You are ready to receive the baptism in water and spirit.

Believe me Brethren, just like man must taste of death, also comes judgement. Jesus Christ, Is real and Alive- In my tribulations, Satan slammed me silly (SSS) taking everything from me including health. Now years later Christ revealed Himself thru suffering. IN that, I have victory for endurance patience, and compassion for others.

You need to embrace menopause and reality.

It will help you clear out all of the dead weight, including some of the people who are holding you down.

Silencing yourself and living in the dark just means you've left yourself exposed to the type of people who wander the dark looking for victims who won't scream.

So many deluded Bible thumpers this is hilarious. Ppl like them will never solve problems in this corrupt world. Your views are too complacent. Ever heard of “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”? Prayers are just that: nothing. If you had suffered like the OP and I did, you will not be worshipping a made up God.

Ah, we agree there, I think all organized religions are just about control.

Many of us get where you are coming from. Your story is the standard and not the deviation. The US has been falling apart morally, socially an economically. i'm 60 and it's only within the last 5 years i've known any security at all.

ask yourself:
have you lived through war?
plague?
famine?
totalitarian government?

Are you:
relatively healthy?
have family?

THose last 2 are the most important. I really hope things turn around for you. We need all the positivity we can get in the world. You can either contribute or be a drain on it.
