Every now and then I spell out here how to get ahead. Nobody ever responds. I assume because they’re doing things on my never do list. Looks like you did it twice.
Don’t play video games.
Don’t drink.
Don’t do drugs.
Never divorce.
Eat healthy.
Work out.
Invest. Even if it’s $100 a year.
Follow that and you’ll be ahead enough that you can survive any curve ball.

OP: They say "curiosity killed the cat." I say lack of curiosity kills humans. Find a subject your passionate about & study it forwards & backwards. Master it in all it's parts & leave no stone unturned. Once done, move on to another subject. Keep busy! The devil finds work for idle hands.

Perhaps the 1st subject worth tackling is searching for proof of God. If you study every religion on Earth & dig into the esoteric side of things, you'll get the proof you're looking for. I certainly did.

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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75958201


Those 5 Tibetans exercises are great, I was doing them regularly in 2011 and it helped me so much, it totally fixes your posture in every way.

I know I need to do them again!

I want to thank each and everyone of you for your input whether it was deemed valuable or not, if it came from your heart it goes to show where your heart is. I'll figure out how to deal with mine one way or another. Maybe a good night sleep will help. Tomorrow is another day.

I just wanted to acknowledge what you all have put forth today so you didn't do it in vain. By all means, you didn't do it in vain. Your thoughts were read by a lot of people.

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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14385938

Dynamite advice packed into this reply!

My saying is "Life is for the living" and after some losses of people close to me I've added "I'll be there soon enough!" right? We're all going the same place. No need to wallow in things while we're here, it's all temporary.

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.

Reads like you’re feeling are stuck in what you think you don’t have. How about looking at the things you do instead? Life now with the way society is hard. Count your blessings. You woke up. You opened your eyes, you can see. You have internet access. If you have a roof over your head, a bed, and running water you are rich. Ask yourself what would make you happy? Is it money? Vacations? Someone to provide those things? Remember those are just things. You need to fill your soul. Many are experiencing dark night of the soul now.

Reads like it doesn’t it? Those are the things I’ve noticed in life that stop people from reaching full potential. That’s all. Nothing wrong with a toke once in awhile or a beer. An hour a week on video games won’t hurt. For me, I rescue animals. Gives me great joy going to bed in my little zoo. Huge pain in the ass too but well worth it. Long walks cheer me up. Water skiing. Jamming to good tunes on the highway. There’s several ways to find dopamine.

Re: STICK ME WITH THE FORK I'M DONE.too old to tired to fight anymore
I get it.

There's so much swirling around on how this decision came to mind. It's a tasty salad of... age, life experiences, personal style, attitude, gifted gifts, family, bloodline and the pure energy of "now".

No one is truly going to get it. Not me at least.

I've been lurking in shadows for a long time... I've graduated from Fandango days.

You're sounding an alarm I hear ringing in my ears... It sucks, it smells, everything now is funky, evil lurks, seduction has succeeded, there's a gut feeling and something alien that I just can't put my finger on. Maybe it's a pole shift but how many fails does it take?

Time is short and know it. A storm is coming and it's not the 'Q' psyops storm.

It's a lighting rod salesman type of storm followed by the dark circus.

The days run together like water flowing in a stream.
I watch the stream wanting to see that odd shaped leaf float by that spooks my mind, shakes the tree and awakes the lion.

The thief in the night... I wait to catch.
