Not pathetic at all I would say
Well, I also have this 'pathetic' opinion about myself, so, I might be not really objective.
I agree. I think isolating urself won't rlly help anything. U have that fear either way and running away is not a good option to deal with it. You can find peace in other things u may like to do I.e you can try meditation or yoga, breathing exercises
I know it's hard to face up to something but if u just try from now
It can get easier.
I feel the same way.
I appreciate the ruthless honesty expressed here. Sages have been saying this for ages which is why many remain detached from the world and its meaningless activities and pointless pursuits.
:) wish I was a sage.
The mind is spacious enough to hold both sage and fool. I'm more ignorant than wise, but aspiring to be less stupid.
Hope you find strategies to promote that end. For me, its breath work (eg Wim Hof Method), exercise, meditation (yoga nidra or guided body scans are best to relax), progressive muscle relaxation, hobbies. May your choices bring your mind peace.
...and I really, really hope not to lose everything in stupid purchases. It is a kind of shock, not to be in debt anymore. From other side I wonder, if am I turning in a kind of Ebenezer Scrooge. Time will tell.
What a progress!
That's awesome, Paul & inspiring. On the same trajectory. No debt, saving, trying to maintain the discipline.
I've been very lucky to keep my job in these times. And, since now I have less options to spend money, well, it accumulates faster.
Agreed. I think that may be a reason I, too, was able to pay off debts and save.
Or you won't. Something else could happen.
Future is really unpredictable, still, some things are more probable than others.
lol. that's an explosive combination, Paul.
I'm old, like 56 old, AND mentally ill. So, here's some wisdom from the future. You just don't know that - no matter what the past record looks like. Hang in there. Even if Sunday does suck, Monday is coming. ♥
Thanks, Chameleon. Yes, miracles happen and I've had most wonderful moments coming out of nowhere.
'All is vanity,' declares the preacher in Ecclesiastes. He could just as well have written, 'All is pointless.' 'All is illusion,' say the Buddhists. 'All is Maya,' say the Hindus. Vanity, illusion, pointless...
I want clarity, not diversion, illusion, meaningless distraction, pointless entertainment.
Ecclesiastes, only part of the Bible I find to be meaningful.
Gives a kind of clarity and ability to plan forward and see the past too. Some measure of control, maybe, or, at least awareness of money flow.
At some point I was actually waiting for bills to come, it was almost fun :)
That's a wonderful discipline. We can keep track of where the money goes. What we can measure, we can manage.
