Only 4 things in life needed for happiness. Loyalty, respect, orgasms, and chocolate. You have the basics, and you can work through all the other bs life throws at you.
The most secure prison we place ourselves in, and the hardest to break out of, is giving a damn what other people think. Especially strangers. The most toxic people in life often come disguised as friends or family. You will never find happiness and peace of mind until you break free of what people think of you.
Happiness is a choice, and it takes no more effort to achieve than the people who choose to be miserable. So, before you diagnose yourself with low self esteem or depression, first make sure you are not in fact just surrounded by a$$holes.
I ran cross country in HS and got a track scholarship for college. I earned a bachelors in criminal justice. Goal was to go into law enforcement, but circumstances changed and now I am a civilian police dispatcher.
L o c a: What the hell is wrong with people anymore? Why do so many now think only "Their" freedom of speech matters? Who in the hell is anyone to tell someone else to shut up about their beliefs and opinions? I don't give a darn who's side you are on. The biggest joke in this country now are so called "Liberals". Liberals used to be the champion of free speech fighting against those silencing gays, minorities, and those that didn't have a voice. Now that very same so called "Woke" group are silencing anyone that disagrees with them. They use violence, they cost people their jobs, they force people to move out of their homes once they get labeled as anything but how they think. Just who the hell is anyone to tell anyone else to shut up and remain silent?
You keep dividing this country, you keep pushing the other half of America, you are going to create a monster that is going to shatter this country. Stop being stupid and relying on the news and political parties telling you how to think. Would I have voted for Biden and the groups behind him? No. Am I a Trumpster? No. I may only be 26, but I came to realize that these two parties are just different cheeks hanging on the same ass. Their goal was to split us right down the middle, and succeed they did. We are at each other's throat, evenly divided while no one looks at them so they can live their lives and become rich and powerful.
This country better damn well start healing and unite, because if you keep backing the other half into a corner, they will lash back. Respect each other, and realize we are all equal and have every right to believe how we wish, and voice those beliefs without fear.
Troublinn: Democrats are godless, communist, heathens and Republicans are self-righteous, bully, hypocrites........what a great country we live in, where you can disown and disavow your neighbor, , and tell them they are worthless and a waste of space, just because they don't hold the same beliefs. An eye for an eye just leaves everyone BLIND!
The divisiveness is what will kill this country!
