All of your life, you've been lied to.You've been told what life is supposed to be about. Grow up, do well in school, make friends, get a girlfriend or boyfriend, get a good job, get married, get a nice house andhave kids. Watch tv, go to church, vote, find some hobbies to entertain you. Donate money to charity. Go on vacation. Get old, retire, spend time with the grandkids. Lookback on your life with nostalgia, look forward to the afterlife of your choosing.This is what you're supposed to do, this is what normal people do. This is what everyoneelse is doing. Oh sure, there are a few aberrations here and there, sometimes somepeople slip off this track, but you can get back on at any time.Of course, when you actually look at the world around you, you may see somethingentirely different.
See that young married couple living next door, with the wife gardening in the front yardwhile the kids play out back? She's snowed under with Xanax all the time, without whichshe'd be in a continuous state of anxiety. And her 6 year old son, he's following in mom'sfootsteps already, taking his daily dose of Ritalin to keep him tranquil enough to sit still allday at school.She stopped sleeping with her husband several years ago, but that's ok, cause hesneaks off a couple times a week and has sex with street prostitutes in the back seat ofhis car, or a nearby motel. He feels a bit bad for them, and tips them extra.multiple times a year, but that's ok, she can handle it, cause even at its worst this job is
still better than what she went through as a child. Besides, there's no other way she couldsupport her crack cocaine habit.
And the cop who tries to arrest her, last night he arrested the neighborhood marijuanadealer, then went home and got nice and legally drunk on jack daniels.And the cop's daughter, the pretty high school cheerleader, sneaks off and vomits afterevery meal so she won't get fat.But these are all small scale problems. Don't forget that, several times a century, oftenenough to happen at least once during the average human lifetime, all the most powerful
nations of the world divide up into sides and begin slaughtering anyone they can find onthe opposing side by the millions. This is agreed by all to be unfortunate but necessary.And the city you live in, if you're in a western country and living in a city, has already beentargetted by some country's nuclear weaponry. A few pushes of the right buttons, and you'll be vaporized, or survive and live in some radioactive wasteland. But that's ok,because it probably won't happen in the immediate future, so you might as well go outand buy the week's groceries.Beneath the thin veneer of civilization lies a howling madness, and the average normalhuman being has the ability to commit genocide during the day, then come home andtuck the kids in at night, or to ignore the pain of a billion people in misery while mowingthe lawn or doing christmas shopping.The Big Lie is that all of the problems of human life are separate. If youcompartmentalize them all, you can convince yourself that once you lose that 40 pounds,or get more money, or get your husband to stop beating you, or finally kick that addiction,you'll be a normal happy person like everyone else. And once you get the right politicianelected, or win the war, or convert the infidels to your religion, the world will be a happyplaceThe problems of life are all symptoms of the same cause. The locks on your doorswhich you need to keep out burglars, the schoolyard bully, the serial killer, the drugaddict, the drug dealer, the billionaire who thinks he's being exploited by the poor, themillions of soldiers fighting for peace, the enslavement or slaughter of entire races ofpeople, and your own unhappiness, all are interconnected. They are all part of oneproblem.I wish I could define the problem for you, or offer a solution. Human beings seem tohave a basic design flaw.

Once you realize that you are only responsible for you, and that everyone else is responsible for themselves, you will feel better. Quit worrying about what everyone else is doing and go about making your life the best it can be. You'll be a lot happier.

This is just a short amount of a much longer writing. It was written pre 2004. It was NOT written by the poster, or the poster who claims it. Let's get it right. The whole piece was presented on a site (lifesucks DOT info) which no longer exists. It is a misguided theory on God; life sucks and God doesn't love you. Neither of these thoughts are true. For some, life sucks because of their own inhibitions.
