Cake: Selfishness

cheesecake

Everyone wants their cake and eat it too. Human nature pushes us to desire as much as possible. That is the natural selfishness we generally have. I have been selfish. When you are young you tend to want things you do not need and chase things just for the sake of chasing.

Problem with that life is that at some point you will be older. Then you look around and realize that you do not have anything. Alright better yet, you do have things but what you really want you do not have. You just have a bunch of useless things that probably mattered back then but now mean nothing.

So now you have to get these things you need. Problem is you are starting at an age where you probably less driven about getting them. Probably saying you should have got it a long time ago right? Sometimes life is like that. You only realize when you have nothing how much time you wasted.

Guess it is time to get to work right?

Funny that when we are young, we are not that mentally mature. Though that might not be our fault, teenagers do not learn life skills in school. They only learn that when they leave and consider whether they should go to a university.

 Even then it is still a tight learning curve. So I guess it is better this way after all If I tell you, it will not matter. You will read this, like it and then go back in life doing the same thing. It is better for you to experience it for yourself and learn from it literally. So you want your cake, go and go ahead. But watch that frosting, it might be too sweet for that tooth.

I know I want cheese cake but I am not eating it, what about you?

Cake: Selfishness

Friends and Your Depression

people-2569234

When I used to get depressed locking out the people close to me was the norm. I felt that by doing that I was guarding myself from harm. But all I was doing was making it harder to heal. Without friends and family you have to deal with all that on your own.

Some people feel more comfortable dealing with depression on their own. It is equivalent to not wanting to drag people down into the abyss that is your mind. Yes, I feel like that sometimes. I feel like it is better for me not to drag people into my problems.

Though I may feel like that, truly sincere people can really help you weather the storm that is your mind. You only have to allow them. Struggles are easier and more rewarding with friends. If you know it is reaching a certain level that is suffocating, talk to somebody.

If you have a God call out to him. If you have no friends find a family member you trust. If that is not possible seek professional help. Do not be ashamed of it. We all have to seek out help from time to time. That is just a part of life. So you do not have to wade those waters alone.

I went through much struggle but I have persons I could confide in. They make the struggle easier. They help me wade the storm ahead. It is like when you are the captain, they are the mates they assist in all the tasks that keep the ship afloat.

Trust me it will feel better when you have friends that care for you besides you. Because that means you can rely on them, it will not only relieve you of all that strain on your shoulders but it will give you perspective.

So walk with friends never walk alone if you can manage.

Friends and Your Depression

Anti-Social

social network

It is funny for me right now. I go to a new workplace and everyone says I do not interact enough with anyone. Great my anti-social trait is coming back to hunt me. But I expected this to creep up and hunt me at some point. Problem is it is happening now.

Plus there is another problem, I have little knowledge on how to be social much less talk to people in a manner that does not creep them out. I write a lot on myself here and it could be assumed I am a normal male trying to find himself in this screwed up world. But just because I can write out my feelings does not mean I talk it out as easily.

That is where I fail. Writing something and saying it is different. I could never gauge people’s feelings well so I make a lot of stupid statements. With people I have known for years this is never a problem. Though that might be due to my knowledge on their quirks and nuisances, so conversation is easy with them. Conversation is a skill after all.

A skill I suck at. Usually it is said you should focus on a skill until it becomes second nature. Guess I have a lot of work to do in the area of communication. But I think my desire to talk to people randomly is low as well so I can reason that as a factor. Honestly I dislike pointless discussions so that might be it.

Then again…wait I am overthinking this.

No matter how much I think of it, I have a problem. Over thinking too much can lead to you forgetting to do the task in itself. Maybe I should just do it. Even if it is weird at first, experience helps. So what is a man to do, well I guess talk to people more.

Do you go through this, being called out for not talking to your co-workers?

Why Vote?

voting

It is funny when I watch the political climate. I will not give my opinion on policies and political views since I do not vote and never will in this country or any other for that matter. Mostly because I consider all politicians con-artists, thieves as best.  No politician is on my admiration list. I just think all of them are cretins.

Maybe I will find one I like someday, but the problem with such a thing is that politics nowadays is tailored around voting for a party. Even if one good person is in there, I can be sure most of the party members are cretins in some way or another. Because it is just human nature to be a cretin, especially when you know there is not much for the people to choose from.

So what will I do? Should I even bother to look out for people to change? For politics to stop being a joke? Should I bother? Personally I do not want to bother. It hurts to vote, when your vote does not count.

If you vote for one person you like, you have to support the party which might want to do things you do not like. I guess this is where tolerance comes in. But why tolerate hate, incompetence and evil? No, I cannot do that. If I see fire, I will not go near it. I rather be the odd one out and not complain about the government I have in my country. Because I will never be pleased with them anyway so it is better for me to not get involved.

It is better for me to not vote at all. Even when I vote for the right person, they will get sucked into the machinery that changes them into the thieves that were already there before. So why vote?
