Hang in there, Dawn & Michelle.
One of the highlights of the forum (for me, at least), was some of the personal experiences that people shared, and you two had some of the best. I like the idea of dead aliens in Hangar 51 as much as the next guy, but it puts a human touch on it when you can talk about other stufff, too.

I think that perhaps the better question than how have each of us changed might be, just how much has the world changed? Has it gotten better or worse?

I say worse.

The clock has slowed a bit, but the countdown to armageddon is still on and we in this world are still right on schedule.

I'd say that calls for another drink.

It's not all that bad considering Bush is coming under fire this term in his Presidency.

GM realizes now that it has to care what consumers think if it wants to survive.

The WTO has ruled that dumping of US trade debt is illegal so China is now obligated.

eHarmony has found me a soulmate who accepts me for who I am.

My brother and sis-in-law have become better parents.

Despite Bush, the Internationalists, and Chi-Commie-Kazis the US economy is coming back. The Lou Dobbs effect is taking hold.

Rumsfeld has announced troop withdrawls next year.

We're out of the basement and at least on the ground floor heading in the right direction.

This year may not have been so great but the cognitives are reasserting themselves with a vengence.

You know, it's almost the end of the year, so I thought it might be nice to look back on the type of year each of us had. This post originally appeared in my Eternal Life topic, but, at Rockessence's suggestion, we begin a new topic to try and explore what each of us has learned.

Has your life gotten better this year or worse?

Do you feel you are making progress towards your goals or have you fallen behind?

As for me, my own life has gotten wholly different than it did last year, when I first came here. Worse for me, and filled with more adversity than I care to say, some of it of my own making. 

Last year, I believed in the best in people. Now I happen to believe in the worst.

Perhaps a classification system is in order.

Last year, I felt the current state of the world was just a setback, now I am not certain that we shall ever come out of it.

Shoot.., Bush couldn't be having a harder time now than at any other point in his Presidency.

I have seen hatred flourish without any motive given, dreams collapse without reason given at all. And throughout it all, this over-riding undercurrent of violence that seems to effect everything and everyone these days, in one fashion or another.

Care to elaborate on the haterd part. Hatred isn't equated with evil always.

One thing I have learned for certain, is why, (whether God actually exists or not), people experience such an innate need to believe in God as they do. Belief and faith, at least, tend to give one hope. You don't feel so alone. Experience lack of belief, and you realize that you simply end up with yourself, and no one really wants to feel alone. So, for all the people who have more faith than I do, I suppose I understand you better now.

You want a faith based experience find your soulmate on eHarmony. Follow me here... First the internet as we know it has to be invented. Second all 29 dimensions of relationships need to be discovered and gauged for both men and women. Third you take broad based compatibility and make a computer program of it to measure an individual and put it on the internet. Fourth you open a business based on all this and let people sign up at random. Fifth, you discover the internet has no boudaries and limits but your matches do hence relocation becomes an issue. Sixth you go thru hundreds of matches to finally find that perfect match with clicking chemistry and relocation a non-issue. If this isn't faith based I can't think of any other better examples.

Not to say you can't get matches in your own state or area you live in. I mean not every place has the lazy woman problem NY has.

I don't know what lies at the end of our lives, and yet, when it all comes to an end, one thing I know for certain: if I were offered a choice, I don't think I would want another one. There's something not quite right here, I don't know what it is, but it seems to be getting worse in this world all the time.

NO FATE BUT WHAT YOU MAKE!

We don't care about each other anymore. Worse to the point, some of us no longer even see the value of trying.

It's a matter of focusing your efforts.

No sadness here, that's just the way I happen to feel. And yet, it doesn't have to be the way you feel, in fact, I hope it isn't.

Those are my own observations and I think it important to point out they need not be yours. Maybe some of you have learned lessons that I have yet to learn. If so, my friends (and that does happen to be what I consider us all to be), let's look at ourselves and ask the questions:

What did you learn this year?

That trying and trying again at eHarmony does pay off in finding a great soul-mate once you get past the relocation issues and the fakes.

Has your life gotten better or worse?

better

Do you feel you are making progress towards your goals or have you fallen behind?

Progess but far slower than I'd like.

This is meant to be an interactive topic and once again, I encourage everyone to participate.

And, of course, Happy Holidays to everyone.

Cheers,

Dawn

Hope the next year is better for you Dawn.

Maybe a little more prayer is in order, Dawn, then you might have a decent year. As I said, I have no complaints myself.

This year, everything has gotten so much darker. What I used to be so certain of, I'm no longer certain of at all. I don't know how many people here know this feeling, where you suddenly feel so safe and secure, like everything has all been planned out for you, and then have all that security suddenly just gone. I felt it first back when my father died a few years ago, I felt it a second time this year when I first broke up with Curt. You know, even though I am doing better now than when I first told everyone about all this, I don't actually feel as safe and secure as I once did. Maybe I never will again, eiher. I guess, once you lose something like that, there's no getting it back.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Michelle, maybe I'm not remembering things correctly, but I did believe you said your problems were the result of an infidelity. If that's the case, an argument could be made that there is only one person to blame for that, young lady.

I'd like to say that I have been reading this forum since the fall and even though I don't agree with everyone, the mix of points of view that I see going on here is really interesting (and makes for good reading).

It's sort of like a mini-human drama going on. One thing I have realized is that no two people are destined to follow down the same road. Also that upbringing is not the only key to success. The more limited someone's experiences are, the less apt they are to understand others.

Overall, things have gotten better for me, and I'm making slow progress toward my goals. I had a few very short relationships that didn't work out, but I just think of those as learning experiences. I found a long distance pen pal with whom I have a more open and caring relationship than any in person that I can remember, and she's become very special to me. I started a business (an online store), which is a great feeling even if I am barely breaking even. At work I moved to a different department, away from an egomaniacal, childish... let's just say he's a manager on a powertrip. The people I work with now are a pleasure to be around.

And I started posting a little on the forum. I must say that people like Michelle and Dawn are what keep me coming back - their light overcomes the dark clouds that also post here. Despite the problems in their own lives, they still have that effect, and it's something to be proud of.

So I'm doing fine personally, which probably intensifies my concern for the state of the world. It isn't doing well, and I think we're at a crossroads. Even if we do make all the right decisions from here out (unlikely), we seem to be on the brink of a major climate change. I don't see the human race becoming extinct, we're too resilient for that, but 20 years from now the world will be a very different place.

In ten years from now, the world might well be a different place, we're all due for a major earth change in 2012.

The biggest problems the world faces today are the three "r's," racism, religious zealotry, and the **** of the environment.

What do all these things have in common? They are all the work of man, not nature. Nature has a way of slapping the human race back down, though, once it gets too carried away with itself.

This will be the year that I realized that no problem that I or anyone else can have cannot be solved without understanding. that one person truly can make a difference, that we need not accept things the way that they are. We really can save the world with love.

Two years ago, I came here to rigbt a wrong I saw inflicted upon a member of this forum. It is interesting how the names can change, time can pass, and yet the attitude of some remains the same. As long as people are incapable of fair, rational action, the need for justice will always prevail.

And justice is made not by the wants and desires of human beings, but by their deeds.

A late Happy Holidays to everyone.

I've learned that if you are blonde, 22 and decent looking, you tend to get a lot of attention in school. Odd thing? You don't tend to want most of it and it becomes more of a nuisance than anything else.

A pity that the forum has de-evolved into so many petty disagreements. I thought we were having some very enlightened discussions there for a time.

And Aphrodite I have to agree with you on that last statement. However Faith, (almost named my daughter that.) Made the point of everything that matters in the world. This will be the year that I realized that no problem that I or anyone else can have cannot be solved without understanding. That one person truly can make a difference, that we need not accept things the way that they are. We really can save the world with love.

And I would like to add to this part; The reason the world is a rough place is because it's easier then opening your heart enough to forgive and understand.

Thanks for the encouragement, Trent. And thanks a lot for the compliment, Ren, it's nice people like you that make me keep coming here, too.

I'd like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. Hopefully, it will be better than the last year was!
