Who Is In the Mood For Me To Depress Them?

Just some random thoughts that have been fluttering around my brain these days...

People who are young and naive; they have it set. Everything is black and white, the world is a happy place, the sky is clear, the future awaits them with open arms.

Then something happens at some point in your life, and that big bubble deflates. For some of us it happens really young, for those more fortunate it is a very slow process that doesn't occure to them untill they have almost matured. The very few that it doesn't happen to are either eternally naive or have other problems which I won't touch on here.

The days of being free, thinking that you are going to be somebody - gone, poof.

Then one has to deal with the prospect of being just another nobody; or just another somebody if you want to see the glass as half full.

For me, the worst part of growing up was realizing how insignificant I was.

The worse part about growing up is always making stupid decisions.

But then again, you learn from them and become a better person.

I guess me telling you to stop that talk did you a lot of good Becca. When I'm telling you to cheer up you know that something is wrong. Me? Me?

You get more freedom when you are older. Sure there are days when I wish I could go back to playing in my sandbox and playing on my swing set but that would get boring fast. You just have to grow up.

No you don't. The perfect age in the US is 21, provided you go to college of course. I wish I could go through some Groundhog Dayesque time warp and relive that year over and over again. Greatest year EVER!

I wish I can be 10 again too *sigh* so much fun and no responsibilities. Age 18 was cool, go to college and free from parents, that was exciting for a while, But the best age has got to be 21. Get into clubs, dance the night away with some hot guy, and drink *cough* all you want and not get in trouble like if you actually *cough* do that before you're *cough* 21 and *cough* try to hide the liquor from your parents and roomie *cough*........ And then after that year it all sucks. Like right now, I'm lost ever since I got out of college. :rolleyes:

Steam you knew that I had to get it out somewhere :o Besides to tell me to stop it half the time that I try to talk to you about something :sad: [all I wanted to talk about was bums, that was all I asked ....

I always thought that I would do something special though - not be a celebrity or anything, I would never want that - but just do something that was different.

But there just isn't anything different to do - just ordinary stuff that everyone does.

So I just have to float through life like everyone else.

Such a piss off.

Rebecca, even the "significant" ones die, so in the end we are all the same ;) Just try to enjoy life as it is/comes :)

Or not... :p

It sounds pretty cliched, but the one way in which to really make your life significant is to touch others. When you're young you think of making your life unique as being about you, but in fact the way to make your life unique is to make others care about you.

What's wrong, Becca? Has something happened to you? What has put you in such a dour mood? I don't see why you couldn't do and be something special in your life, you have plenty of time. For my part, life didn't begin until I was in my twenties. And I don't believe in insignificance anymore, but I used to. If you ever need to talk, just pm me. :)

I went to nyc for the first time not a lot time ago - in fact it was the first time I can say I really travelled - and I realize that I would like to work there, or at least in another city that I'm currently living... Montreal is a great city, but it's much different being in another city; it's like starting a new life, and it's so special. I guess after a while it wouldn't be so special but still... And I know I'll never work 5 days 9 to 5, I want to do something special in my life, maybe being an artist, but it can be something else.

I just don't want to wake up at 40 years old and realizing that I did nothing interesting in my life :( ;)

I totally understand how you feel Rebecca :wavey:

BTW you should really go to the Bronx zoo at nyc that's one of things I preferred the most. Of course there's also Central Park, Times Square, SHOPPING!!! All shopping all the time ;) The Metropolitain Museum of art, and many other things ... I'll go again the first 2 days of the qualification of the US Open, when are you going?

All new york all the time, I just love that city :bounce: :drool: :bounce:

I'm just going ot start deleting the original psots in protest.

We truly were special. And we still are.

3 years after and my life is not special at all!

This thread is indeed depressing!

Chloe le Bopper
12-11-2005, 11:08 PM
Ah, buck up. Personally, I'm MUCH cooler than I was three years ago. And I've done more stuff since then, even if "more stuff" only really involves going to Montreal and NYC 23940802832 times.

Maybe we can bump this thread in 2008 and see where's our life then.

Yeah, we're much cooler now. But my life isn't any more special than it was.

It was, but it's true. You only mean anything to but a small handful of people. When they're gone, so are you. And even with them around that doesn't change the fact that in the grand scheme of things, none of us really matter at all. So take pleasure in the little things, my friend. They're all we've got.

But seriously now... occure?! Occure?! What an atrocity.

back in the day, I was young; I'm not a kid anymore. Some days I sit and wish I was a kid again.....

Chloe le Bopper
12-12-2005, 02:41 AM
And sometimes I wish that I truly understood what it is to wish to be a kid again. But I don't. I can't. So I just enjoy my crackers.

i have never felt insignificant. i feel that i am very loved by my fiance, my friends, my family, and most of all by myself. and bec i am at the center of so much loving, i do not at all feel insignificant. i wish you and everyone felt this way.

Chloe le Bopper
12-13-2005, 01:46 AM
You may not feel insignificant, but really... you are. The bit about having people who love you and yada yada... that's great. That's what you need to hold on to. As I said, it's all you've got. Without them you're nothing. With them you're collectively nothing, but at least have each other to get by.

People tend to overestimate their own importance. It's actually considered healthy to do so.

if i do not consider myself to be insignificant, what exactly qualifies you to determine that i actually am? :confused:

perception is reality. my perception is that my life is deeply meaningful and i am grateful for this. i have always felt this way and i trust that i always will.

Just a little simple logic, darling!

perception is reality. my perception is that my life is deeply meaningful and i am grateful for this. i have always felt this way and i trust that i always will.

And it's GREAT that you feel that way. Don't ever let anybody tell you otherwise. I never said there was anything wrong with feeling that way - au contraire, I said that it was healthy. That, and I never said that you're life wasn't meaningful, I said you were insignificant, all things considered.. not the same thing at all. Regardless....

Most days I think that I'm pretty bloody good too, don't you worry. I wrote this baby three years ago.

They have special surgeries these days that can help you find one, if you'd like.
