Stupid Question, but has your life completely changed and got worse mentally ?

For me life started to change years ago but with Covid it now feels worse and I wish I could go back , now I feel I have no hope and I can't believe I writing this .

The only people answering in the negative to this premise, would be the politicians, Pharma, hollywood execs etc. The rest of us, in one way or another have had our hearts ripped out and life turned to shit.

Not necessarily, but this isn't yet the place (or quite the right time) to say how things are in the process of  changing for the best.

It has not changed me or my family at all. The worst part (so far...) is we cannot take our annual holiday abroad to a place we love to be, but that's about it and I see it as a very small price to pay.

I made a conscience decision at the start of all this sars crap that I would not allow it to 'get at' me or my family. Of course some days you wonder what the hell is going on? But for me that is about it. There is a saying......Don't let the b@57ards grind you down!

I've learnt more about myself, life, other people & this world in the past couple of years than at any other time in my life. So that's gotta be a positive right. One thing I know is that there's something else other than here & I can't seem to take this place seriously anymore. This is clown world right? :-D. I'm still trying to make the best of the time I have here though.

Your writing it because it’s how you feel. Nothing wrong with sharing your feelings.


Can I share the one thing that helps me no end (this may sound stupid but what the hell) It’s singing to myself. If I’m not feeling on top I put on a few songs that have some great memories, take me back to a time or place in my life, reminds me of a person I loved but no longer around. You know the kinnda thing…….a tune that reminds you of a holiday with the boys (or girls) when you were younger when life was a great laugh. A song that reminds you of your first love that never quite worked out. A song that takes you back to a particular moment in time. And I just sing out loud. I do not care who's listening I just give it my all…….and my voice is crap. If anyone is around it puts a smile on their face (probably because I am so so bad at singing) or a positive response. Singing picks me right up. It’s my medicine if you like, my way of coping with the many, many problems we all have in life. I suppose it’s just finding you natural medicine and going with it.

 

The funny thing is when we do go on holiday my wife and kids always tell me to get up and do karaoke but I never do because it would terify me! Weird eh 😂

 

Will just add this…..one of my fav songs…….how powerful singing can be 👍

I wouldn't say it's gotten worse, but more disappointing than anything. I still hacve friends who believe "Left good, Right bad" and that Nicola Sturgeon is a Saint, while the Tories are all assholes. Fo me, I don't see humanity ever waking up. The next planned catastrophe or plandemic that rolls around the public will be right there online believing they know everything that's going on, while dismissing conspiracy theories, and deciding if they agree with someone based on the politial views of said person.

 

Not existing is the true heaven.

The only people I trust are my children so I spend time watching what I'm saying to people. I can cope well on my own and apart from close family I prefer it. Luckily I can make things and it always gets me out of feeling negative. I mastered sewing a zip recently and sewing PVC fabric so I've got so many soap bags I don't know what to do with them.! Anyone need a zip bag? I enjoy doing very simple things like feeding wildlife. Everything outside of my cocoon is very bizarre and evil and I can't stand how people police each other whilst acting oh so virtuous. Does anyone really feel anything anymore? I suppose there's always the possibility I am the insane one but I analyse and check myself for empathy, common sense, being able to do something kind without putting it on social media, intuition, lie detecting, avoiding group think, trying to keep dignity for me and others, applying logic and keeping my feet on the ground so I assume I'm ok?! This is very me, me, me sorry but you did ask and thank you for such a good question. Conclusion: my life is better in some ways but worse in others.

Worse and better, mixed bag.

There’s always hope even when there seems like there’s none, but I know what your saying and even the best positive reinforcement can’t really remedy what has happened. 
 

Delve into your spirit, do what makes you feel better.

This is what I’ve found to work. 
Even though I have no friends left, as they’re all backstabbing conniving covid mong normies, im quite ok with it. Why would I want to expose myself to that bullshit? 
Anyway, the whole thing made me work harder, get fitter, be more productive and consequently earn more dollar. This drive and motivation is starting to wane however, seeing it as futile- what good is money if your lonely with your spirit constantly nagging you to be set free- run, anywhere just run, escape, get away.

 

You can only suppress your spirit as a survival mechanism for so long, after that your body gets ill and your spirit starts to shrink. I fear soon I won’t even remember what my ‘fuck you’ attitude even felt like, as grey hair and diminished life force kicks in. 
 

One more year here, I keep telling myself. Earn more money to travel comfortably. Run from this shit. One more year. 
I’ve been telling myself this for twenty years now
