Journal Entry # 98
June 17th, 2010
Why would I say this? Who am I to tell people to stop their whining and complaining and to get on with their lives? I’m not really anybody. I am just someone who notices that this is a huge problem. Watch all these reality shows that deal with obesity and addiction and every time you will see that people are fat because they are dealing with pain or they do drugs to numb the pain. Not physical pain but emotional pain. My daddy didn’t love me, No one cares, my life sucks. Please get over it and move on with your life. Ok feel sorry for yourself a little but start going through the process of healing. Wait a minute there is a process of healing? Yes.
Let the healing begin, and begin and begin.
I really am sick and tired of hearing about this truth and reconciliation committee in Canada. I realize that the victims involved have legitimate and important concerns but why does this have to be so public. I understand you want an apology but why do you want the world to hear it?These events happened years ago and were tragic but stop playing the victim and get on with your lives. We all have problems but we don’t need them all aired in public. Also the real problem is not being addressed and that is that these abuses took place at the hands of religious leaders who were teaching in schools funded by the public. Religious doctrine is the real problem and the victims suffered for it. I could at least bear listening to the issues if I knew the real problem was being addressed; again RELIGION/ lies, same thing.
First of seven Truth and Reconciliation national gatherings important new chapter in history
I am not trying to be insensitive but this is not my or the present days government issue why are they not dealing with the abusers legally and that should be it. People need to stop wallowing in self pity.
When I was watching the new show about being fat my wife likes called BIG MEDICINE I could not help noticing a common theme among the patients; they eat because they are feeling sorry for themselves. Stop it. I also realize that most people do not have the skills to deal with their issues. We need to teach these skills in school.
Stop playing the victim. I also noticed that in a family where one person is obese usually the rest of the family is obese. What the fuck is wrong with you people. Stop eating and if your kids are obese do something about it by changing your life first. The worst thing I hear is when they are praying to god to help them. If god was there he/she would have made sure you did not get so fucking FAT in the first place. Please everyone come back to reality.
This person comes from a very religious family. Will that help him? The real question is at what point do you notice that you are obese? How did it get this bad? Why didn’t someone put a stop to this? What will be the cost to remedy this situation? Is it worth it? I would venture to guess that at least a million dollars has been spent here. Can you imagine how many lives could be saved in a third world country with this cash?
North America high obesity rate / Third world starving to death. You tell me why this is so far out of balance.
The one thing that can change the world is education but it has to be the right education; critical thinking and proper life skills such as dealing with problems and stress. There is a process the mind goes through to deal with stress that is very effective. I talked about it in post #50, look for the 5 stages of grief. http://thefreeman.net/journal/?p=554
It is important to deal with life’s daily issues. At times those issues can be very traumatic but at some point you have to get over it and stop feeling sorry for yourself. If you do not you will get involved in self-deprecating behaviour that will always end badly. No matter what you are going through you can make it through it if you deal with it properly but the most important thing you can do is to STOP FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF at some point. Just remember nobody really gives a shit so give a shit about you. Please stay within reality and things will get better.
Seek the truth always
