Who really cares what we all go gonin' on? How can a person feel real empathy for someone they've never met. I feel pretty lonely right Now. Not feelin like anyone gives two shts about more than getting scores. Maybe I'm wrong....Don't care one way or the other. Those who want to interject with some sort of fuckd up religious comment, can save it...please.
I think that as in any community, there is real empathy. I feel my own pain for the loss of my little mate Gizmo, and when I see this, I admit I am feeling my pain, but I find it easier to relate to your pain through shared experience.Does that make sense? Any way my genuine best wishes.
Hi, sorry to say that it seems like just as I get interested in a forum.Eeveryone leaves it. I must be a forum killer.
Anyway, what you've got here is someone with so much empathy, that I have to take medicine for it (Zoloft). I worry about soldiers fighting in these wars. I worry about homeless and hungry people. I feel sorry for athletic teams that lose because it seems the media likes to focus in on their poor faces than the champs.
When world tragedy's happen, I take it personally. Especially 9-11, it's my birthday.
And now I'm worried that when they BOMBED the moon (w/o even asking anyone), it did have pretty devastating effects on the earth. Now since the recent earthquakes, the earth has shifted on it's axis. The North Pole is something like 2.54 centimeters to the left of where it should be.
So I try to think of the good things. the beauty of the moon and the sky, the laughter of kids, the smell of my husband, the fact that as of now, my 3 sons seem pretty well adjusted, even with me as their MOM.LOL The taste of ice cream. The color of a flower. See, now I'm worried about you and trying to give you good things to think about. Go take a shower and sing as loud as you can. People really do care.
There is more empathy and kindness here than appears sometimes, there is a crazy thread around somewhere that I go to just to read the nice stuff. Faybe has the best suggestion in my opinion - writing about the character rather than the loss is feel good stuff.
Well, nobody cares ,really. Only your friends would. Have you make friends here , in this Virtual World? I have. Not many. Five or six. The rest wouldn't care if I die tomorrow. But this happens in and out of the web. It's called life !
You'll see many people having similar situations like yours on internet. Everybody seeks some space by opening up their heart. Internet is one place to do that cause you get at least one thread with anonymous/known readers for it. Nobody wants to be lonely, but they become whether they like it or not. In reality nobody really cares what we feel or think be it online or offline, everybody pretends to be a friend. Harsh truth, sooner we learn about this the better. On HP you've got some good people to make you feel better by responding to you and that's very important IMO.
I'm talking about 'RealWorld ' friends. Skyfire said all where not true. In and out the web.
My friends here on hubs, are good 'virtual friends' But I don't know how would they be in 'real' life. They don't know me that well either. That doesn't mean I don't hope and think they're really incredible people.
I think that is what I was saying. As I see the interactions on here the characters are coming quite clear for some people, you included. I find myself liking some people, you included, and also some of the slightly cranky religious people and also some of the people who argue with them. There are also a group of pretentious t**ts who I try to avoid, **shrugs**, all like a normal social circle or a local bar.
I'll pay more attention to you. I'm sure I would like you as well ! I don't have much time lately. I used to be in the forums a lot. One of the reasons is, I like to study characters. Sometimes a post comments that I know are going to move some of them, to see their reactions LOL! But everything I say is what I truly think. I'm always sincere
Yes, you've very good friends around and I'll say you're lucky if we compare this with others(including me). My worst experience is with off-line people, and on-line to some extent besides that I came across lot of good people on-line and that matters to me otherwise you can guess i might have created such threads which rarely help for people like me who goes too deep into any topic.
It's just hard. Alot of milestones are coming up and it seems I'm alone. I couldn't give two shits about everyone (guy)....but it seems like if your avatar is a naked woman, you get more support....regardless of your intelligence or whatever. Whatever....you are right, I am bitter...more than more than normal. You can't say what you want here cuz people generally attack you for not feeling they way they want or taking the consensus on stuff.....subsequently, I keep quiet.
I agree. I think the majority of people on this site are generally good people, but there seems to be a bit of a detachment here. People fall into two categories (when it comes to the forums) One: Wayyyyyyy too serious Two: Money, money, money...Then again, I guess that's the bottom line no matter where you go. Sorries, Stimp. (Hugs of support)
I know. I agree. I just think it's such a fckd up facade of "oh we all give two shts about you" when people really dont't. I'm not gonna tell you only what you want to hear BUT what you need to hear...the truth. Whatever....maybe those here are too young to get it....I don't know. Really doesn't matter.
hey, I just got here so I didnt know you were having a bad night. For what its worth, I do care. Sometimes I DO have to go make dinner, but I still care. I hope you take Faybe's very good advice, and write. Or maybe do like Crazed does, write him a letter? Its hard at first, but it can help to get the bitterness and anger about it out, and you can move on with healing. I hope your feeling a little better today, Stimp.
I know it sucks to be lonely, and to go through a great loss. I too think that for the most part, people arent all that concerned with just exactly who (and what their circumstances are) is on the other side of the screen far away. And I say "F*ck em". Main thing is to take care of yourself in any way you can. Youre all youve got, ya know?
Stimp, I was surprised that it was you who had a problem. I read your Sally story, the other day.
Have you written a Stimp story? I had a really bad day, day before yesterday, spent half of it crying. I wrote a dud of a hub for the challenge and realized I was not up for challenges. Then I wrote some that mattered.
If you have written a hub about your companion, I would love to read it, and if you haven't maybe it will help.
I was thinking about this the other day. We have all these great methods of communication but we still feel lonely. I think communicating is not the answer, it is connection and I am not sure you can do that over the web. When feeling down I go out and do something nice for someone, even just a smile, and I always feel better. That is not a flippant answer either. I think the key to happiness is connecting with other souls.
Thanks all for your messages and insight. Today is the one year anniversary of the REAL Stimp's death. Tough day....we grew up together basically and I miss him tremendously. True, he was "just" a dog but he was my companion and like a child. Some day I will write about him. Thanks again, all...I appreciate it.
Stimp, Yor story about "Ben" was one of the first Hubs I read and as it turns out one of my favorites. I am sorry that you are feeling down today. I do not know you and you do not know me but if you just need someone to rant at please fell free.
Thanks, Ohma....I appreciate and thank you sooo much...
Drej...I'll get back to you later....yes, I'm feeling much better. It was nearly 50 degrees today and I was able to take my little doggie for a walk...IN SHORTS!! That's right, I had shorts on. Not sure which was brighter the sun reflecting off the snow or reflecting off my legs
