Re: totally random thread

If the sig other is still hooked in with the ex either emotionally or because of her own neurosis I don't think there is a solution for you until she no longer is.  Sorry you're having to suffer through this.




Please ask me about my plumber.

Moral of the story........
Say your piece/peace and feel good about it. That should be THE END.
Don't say and do things and expect others to respond in the manner in which you hope they will.

Re: totally random thread

...a random thought I had, while attending a small town basketball game


Why is it that, when someone goes to the free throw line to shoot, the entire building gets so quiet that you can hear the crickets under the bleachers? Is this limited to ball games with small town settings? I don't think it is a function of how may people are in the stands, because I have seen it with both a packed house, smaller crowds and it didn't matter if it was an important game (state level) or ordinary game.

Is it just small town etiquette, or are there other sociological/psychological factors at play here?

Why do they act this way? Why aren't they behaving more like the fans we see at college and professional games?

Anyone else notice this?

Re: totally random thread

When I attend one of these games and see someone else's brat from the opposing of team trying to make a free throw to tie up the game or something, I wanna just scream out "DONT CHOKE!!"... smile 

but all heads in the building would probably mean mug me, and I would be escorted from the premises...

Re: totally random thread

Yes it does get silent for the home team, but the home team -- in college and pro sports --  isn't usually so nice and polite to the visiting team at the free throw line. In a public school system, that doesn't seem to be the case in my limited experience.

Schmuck's wisdumb of the day -  When something feels really right it's probably wrong and when something feels really wrong it's probably wrong.

So, you're always wrong?

Re: totally random thread

Me? 99% of the time I'm wrong. Maybe 99.6%. Let's put it this way, I bought 2 pounds of freshly made beef jerky from a butcher. I know how delicious it is and mental health is often just as important if not more important than physical health. Beef jerky has the same effect on my brain as crack does for a crack addict. Mentally I am in heaven right now. It feels great and that's a good thing - right? Nope. I'm wrong. It's a bad thing because I am getting my pleasure by an unhealthy source and basically overdosing on jerky at the moment being that I just ate about a pound in 15 minute.. Smell what I'm cooking? Feeling what I'm saying?

On another note, speaking of wrong.......
Coke Zero has a "new improved taste". WRONG! Not improved at all. JUNK!

Re: totally random thread

Schmucks 5 shitty thoughts of wisdumb for the day....

1) Nothing lasts forever. Although, if something is bad that's a good thing.
2) Binge eating fulfills a need - and then so does sitting on a toilet and taking a dump.
3) Texting is both a blessing and a curse. Usually not both at the same time but sometimes both at the same time.
4) The more one talks the less they hear. Unless they are listening to them-self talk.
5) You are always once choice away from a totally different life.

Bonus

Every second you are one second closer to death.

I have said this too many times.... If you know you shouldn't do something - don't do it. Yet, I still do it.

My quibble is with No 2 ( how apt!). It doesn't so much fulfill, as eliminate, a need.

Re: totally random thread

Two choices.
Continue to be myself and realize people are who they are and accept it - or don't.
I'm thinking I may just give up. Which would mean - "or don't".
If I make it another 15 days I will have 10 years of sobriety. Yet, I walked around work today telling people - I want (not NEED) a drink or 5. Then I came to the realization I must have a problem that either needs to be fixed or nipped in the bud.
Being sober may be "what's best" for me (or it may not be) but what's really best for me is to have peace of mind - and it sucks that I probably will have to go through a too long period of time being very upset to achieve it. Maybe.
Letting go of / losing people you care about sucks. As a wise woman once told me, it's the ultimate loss.

End of vent/rant.

Have a nice evening, morning, day!

Re: totally random thread

Thanks Trad!
Had a tough day yesterday all around. I feel I do, and do, and do for people and people don't give me anything in return. I don't feel as if I am owed anything - but occasional gratitude and a once in a blue moon "gesture" to show I'm appreciated goes a long way for me.
If people I choose to be in my life don't give me what I feel I need - then I have to look in the mirror and not at them.

Re: totally random thread

Seems to me you are either choosing the wrong people to be in your life -- i.e., graspers, takers, narcissists, emotional black holes-- or you have needs that only you yourself can ultimately fill, i.e., self love, self respect, self knowledge, self actualization, etc and which no external source can provide. Figure out which are which first. (No easy task). And make the necessary changes (no easy task).

Either way I wish you well. Your pain and journey seem earnest and noble.
Oh, and don't drink!
