What I am most upset about is the situation with my brother.

FWIW Giving in to bullies only emboldens them (think Lord Chamberlain).
Never be envious of other's happiness, demeans you and makes you bitter. Rejoice with them, it'll make you feel better. If you can't rejoice then let them go on their way and now strive to get to where they are.
This too shall pass.

First of all, I'm not muffs, and I think that I have made it pretty clear that they can't. I am happy for them, but I think it is stupid to say that envying the happy will lead to bad things and or make you bitter. One can't NOT be jealous or at least not envious of the position others are in. ONE also can be jealous and rejoice with them, they are not mutually exclusive. I am not parting from them for, what I hope at least, a temporary situation of me being unhappy.

Thanks for the idealistic advice, but things aren't nearly as clear cut as "Not giving in= victory" it's more like "Not giving in= my shit being broken"

Ato,
I got a bit confused there, sorry.
I wasn't aware that your parents cannot help.
I stand by what I said, envy, in my opinion, leads to bitterness.
The reason I said to let them go on their way is because you stated...

So I have resolved to try to limit my contact with the two as to not mess with the mojo they have going with each other and to make sure I won't suddenly lash out and make an ass out of myself.


I was agreeing with you.

As far as brothers are concerened I am 1 of 4. I've had my share of fights, run-ins, disagreements and all-out fucking wars with them and I can tell you from my own personal experience that in your position you can make a stand or you can continually be blackmailed until you finally move out. Neither is pleasant, you just have to figure out which do you prefer. Good luck.

RE: Ranting corner
I know they mean well, really I do, but this is the kind of pithy drivel I receive weekly from my loved ones. AAAAAAUUUUUGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Want to make a difference? Give $ to cancer research, spend time in Children's hospitals, comfort the grief stricken but for fuck's sake keep this shit out of my in box. Thank you.

"Chemo Day

Some will say you will pray because it is a nice thing to say or it is politically correct. Then there are those of you who will get down on your knees and really do it. I'm sending this to some who will.

This prayer means so much so please say the prayer for everyone and pass it on.

Cancer is a strange cell.
You can go along for years in remission And then one day it pops its head up again. If you ever have it you will never be free of it. Pray for the day there will be a permanent cure.

A SMALL REQUEST...


93% won't forward, but I'm Sure You Will.

A small request.....Just one line

Dear God,
I pray that You will guide someone to find a cure for cancer in 2013 ....in Jesus' name.
Amen

All you are asked to do is keep this circulating, Even if it's only to one more person. In memory of anyone you know who has been struck down by cancer or is still living with it.
A Candle Loses Nothing by Lighting Another Candle.

Please Keep This Candle Going"

Dude - your writing is too big and fucks up my screen. I didn't read it. Sorry. Dodgy

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

Kim, if you are referring to my previous post I just made the font smaller but it looks alright to me on my screen. Consider

Christians complaining about people being whingy about their rights and then freaking out when you question their religious rights. Fucking assholes *cough* sorry.

He brakes something of yours? Brake something of his worth more.
He steals your food, you steal his and some.

Some people just need to know who's the alpha male in the pack. So get off your ass Ato and go piss in his room.

RE: Ranting corner
I was good at work yesterday. One of my co-workers deserved to have my foot rammed right up their stupid ass but I didn't.

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.
