A friend once told me, "Things are never as good or as bad as they seem."

Good luck.

straight from my facebook note

Alot is going on in the little space i like to call my mind. I'm not sure what I'm going to do, or how i will react to it when the time comes to act.

first off, my g-ma is in the hospital. nothing life threatening at this point, but it is possible that she has a blood clot in her leg. she has been in alot of pain for awhile now, and she has been driving me and my family nuts because of it. Not entierly sure what to think or do. I dont want anything bad to happen to her, but at the same time i am doing what i can not to bite her head off because of her negativity. One of those wonderful fine lines every family has...

second, my best friend is just getting old. he is my cat mikey. he'll be 16 in september. i have lived with him for those 16 years now. I love that little fuzz ball like my child. He's just getting old. Cant hear to well too boot. It depresses me to a point that basically no one understands. I cant talk about it with most of my friends as only one, Alicia being the cat person she is, actually gives a crap about it. They either dont like cats, or tollerate them. This in turn just pisses me off more as I am a cat person and dont want anything to happen to any cat, esspecially my mikey.

third, i just plain hate my job. that simple. if i could quit, i would. but i cant until school starts. three blasted weeks of this stupid job left. dont get me wrong, it has its positive moments, but i cant stand the negative. I hated my job at school last semester, but at least the positives out weighed the negatives. Its just driving me nuts that i have to wait till school starts to quit......

fourth, i dunno what my life after this semester is going to be like. very good chance of the military, but what in the military i am not sure. possibly military psychologist. not the biggest of my worries, but its there none the less.

and fifth, relationships. i'm just gonna leave it at that for now. its getting better, but that doesnt mean it isnt confusing now

What can we say? Life goes on and it's not always the way we planned. But at least it looks like some of your problems are matters of planning ... what to do next.

Jobs. Often problematical. If we didn't need them, we could sit in the sun all day. :) And yours is only a problem for 3 more weeks! :D

Seriously, my daughter just had to arrange that her cat be put to sleep. At 18 years old, it was failing physically on almost every level. There comes a time for the pain to end and the memories to replace it.

What you do about the people -- I can't begin to suggest!

I'll keep you in my thoughts, OL.

You've got the right idea, take things on slow and steady, and make your decisions carefully. I know you're not the type to be rash, and that's a good thing.:thumbup:

You're in my prayers ol. Things will work themselves out, good or bad, and sometimes we don't understand why.

Make the best decisions you can on the issues you have control over.

It will all work out in the end.

Two things OL, One live in the moment and try not to think a lot about what might or might not happen in the future or what happened in the past. This very moment , you are fine. Obviously you have to do some planning for your future , but that is different than worrying about it. Second , turn these things over to God and let him guide you through them. He will make your burdens light my friend. I'll be praying for you !

You're lucky that you didn't post this in W&C or in The Cove, 'cause if you would have, I'd have told you that it's time to "man-up" and deal with the crap that life tosses at you, but since it isn't in either one of those two forums, I'll be nice, and just tell you to take it easy and let your life do what it needs to do.

I've had ALOT of bad things happen to me in MY life, and I'm still here, fighting, and so will you be. Hang in there, my young friend, as it WILL get better.

I know how you feel. Been the worst last three years of my life. But it's always
best to think of the little good things that you have in life. Remeber, no matter
what you think there's always some poor sap way worst off. Believe
me. Just say "screw it and drive on"

First off, my prayers are with you bro! If you are a man of faith then look to God and read His word. There is a verse in Philippians that has helped me tremendously over the past couple years of my life. Philp. 4:6-7; "Be anxious for nothing, but in all things by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace that surpasses all understanding, will guard your heart and mind through Christ Jesus." Hang in there and know that tomorrow will be better.:):):)

hey OL

i can only build on brad's words. something someone told me when i was going through a bad time. Only try to control the things you can control and let go of the illusion of control for things that are out of your control.

hang in there, i hope things get brighter soon.

I know It's easier said then done, but hang in there lil guy. Things will get better.
Try to focus on the things you can change and let God take care of the things
you can't. Like I said, It's easier said then done, but you have a good head on
you,( better then most young men at your age) you'll come out of it fine.
Remember, what doesn't kill you, will make you a stronger person.

I know where you are coming from OL.....having grandparents in the hospital is a tough, trying, and stressful time. Best of luck, I am sure that with time, things will work them selves out. Some things are left to higher powers to decide......I find that comforts me sometimes.......hang in there! :thumbup:

Thanks for the kind words and prayers guys. I kno i will get through it, its just right now its a pain in the shebs.

Esav, Mikey is still going strong. Loud, obnoxious, playful. I love that. But the fact that he is either really hard of hearing or totally deaf just plain hurts. I just get easily hurt when it comes to him.

I guess out of all the things that i mentioned in my last post, the silver lining is the relationship part. Out of all the annoying crap going on right now, that is the silver lining.

I'm not much of a prayer type dude, but when I was a kid and life got rough, my dad had some philosophical ways of telling me how to deal with my struggles. Here are a few of my favorites.

"There are things that happen in life that you cannot change. You can either change how you view them, or accept your emotions for what they are and deal with them."

"Welcome to the human race"

"People rarely pay you to do what you enjoy, nor to do a job that is fun. Those activities cost you money. Ever seen a happy poop scooper at the zoo?"

Tough it out as best you can man, and alter your perception on what you cannot deal with emotionally. Those are really the only options. Optimism can get you anywhere, negativity only leads down one road. In the end, the only person or situation that can beat you is yourself. Keep on keepin on.

...my dad had some philosophical ways of telling me how to deal with my struggles...

"You know, I'll never forget my old dad. When these things would happen to him...the things he'd say to me."

"What did he say?"

"'What the hell are you doing in the bathroom day and night? Why don't you get out of there and give someone else a chance?'"

As you go thru life ol, remember what my granddaddy told me when I was six: "Son," he said, "Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig."

For some reason, I've never forgotten that day, and that saying always seems to fit the situation in some way...

...and laughter is good for your soul!... :thumbup:

Besides, you can't spell Manslaughter without laughter! :D
