twill comments on Feb 18, 2018:
Depression. ADHD. Oprah's "woo" .... Shit never ends . I suppose that (I shut off the babble, I mean video, @ 2:45 btw). Think....just think of not only our species but ALL of the animals in the world.......where did this happiness shit come from? We work, we eat and on a good day we celebrate......but mostly we survive and the lucky ones prosper. I PROSPER because I choose to

twill comments on Feb 11, 2018:
Quite a bit of it....physical, emotional, financial, Power Struggles, "faith" . No single one was the worst of the worse, just a lot of straws on this camel's back. Parents, siblings, wives. Girlfriends have always been awesome tho! Mom & Dad had a weak marriage and Weak Catholic faith.....Dad drank. Ended up owning a bar and that became his life. He just gave up/ us kids became misbehaved shits....No tight family values. I was picked on by 4 of 5 siblings (5th had it even her worse than me ..... from her Step Dad....my Dad) Admittedly, I used to hit back...when I could or wasn't outnumbered. Physically or verbally. Last wife wailed on me a couple of times, I just took it. And got divorced. I'm done fighting these pitiful battles.. I really am. (I hope!)

twill comments on Feb 10, 2018:
Quite simply, the more I listen to the stories and beliefs of believers, and stories/ myths of the bible and religion, along with growing evidence of many Sun Gods/ ancient religions almost totally influencing the modern ones........the more ridiculous it all sounds . Virgin birth? 2 of each animal in an Ark? Die and go to heaven? ....etc. etc. All based on belief and very little evidence + much contradiction.... When you add it all up UP, it comes out to a MINUS Also growing evidence and knowledge of the Earth and Cosmos tells me it's time for humanity to acknowledge the evidence, and to grow up and move forward So to answer the question it wasn't a single thing that made me throw up my hands....

I have recently thought that if every American were to immediately clean out the excess "stuff" from their houses, attics and garages, and if every other America accepted and re-used it, then almost every store in America except for groceries would be out of business within 6 months. Maybe that's why we are seeing so many re-sale shops ? We're already doing that, but at a slower pace?

twill comments on Jan 27, 2018:
It's a constant war to Just Say No! to more stuff. One of my battles is dragging out stuff no longer wanted, necessary or in the way. I Try to give it away before I throw it out. As much shopping as possible is now done at re-sale shops. Years ago I told my kids...No More presents! We are going to start doing things instead! About a 50/50 success rate rate, but the good 50 part of it is fantastic! When my ex moved out, I eliminated 5 or 6 vacuum cleaners. She spent a lot of her time organizing....like monthly re-organizing the house. It is a sickness. I threw out many many plastic tubs and lids. Car seats from when the kids were babies. She liked to paint. The exterior doors were re-painted at least once a year. Most rooms every other year. So I suggested....."Buy cheap paint since you're gonna re-paint anyway" ( I am mean, I was told). Definitely a sickness. Stay on top of it Dreadly.... Hoarders weren't born that way. And yes, I have too many guitars and amps......i can only play one at a time......... And yes, my pole barn has too much junk. But still my favorite place in the whole world is my home. I'll always have "stuff"......I just refuse to build an addition

twill comments on Jan 22, 2018:
So true. Shocking to some people maybe that it was not God's Will? Anyway, had this typical conversation with my kids' Mom when we were married: She says " Oh my cousins kids! Look at them, they eat salads, vegetables and the right foods. Our kids would never do that" I said : " Yes they would, if that's what we would feed them" Of course I was then told about how insensitive and stupid I am. Compounding the errors of my ways, I then added fuel to the fire by saying " Look if we don't bring the processed "food" into the house, then we don't have the problem." Now of course I'm just another dumb man that wants to "fix the problem'. In my eyes witchymom you are quite aware of what's going on. Me ? I'm still fighting this problem and probably will be until my boys are grown up and on their own (grandma's do not help) On the bright side, my boys are fun, healthy and smart.

I just broke up with girlfriend last weekend. Because I want to be single? Probably more like seeking something better.....a better fit. If I never find her, I'm OK with that. Anyway, i didn't see a future with her and the Thrill Was Gone.....so much for the present. But this breaking up thing gets old. Either I'm dumping, or getting ignored. Honestly.......I'd like to try a celibate relationship. Get to know each other. Set some boundaries. Become friends 1st. Romance. Sweetness. ......That'd be different. Yes.....I'm looking for something new. Why did I share all that?

It SUX to be paying all of the bills and for all of the partying by yourself 2) See #1 ----there's a difference between wanting to and having to work 3) I refer to it as "Critical Thinking". 4) Told me to by women who....think that they are better than anyone else.
