Because it wasn’t making me happy. And it wasn’t chaning a damn thing either. Most people simply don’t care. And even those that do tend to care are too busy living their capitalist needy stressed treadmill life. Just like me. Always hungry for the next little thrill. Again, just like me. Am no different. Except that I tend to vent my frustration about what I see happening in the world on a nlog. When it comes to the state of the world I have a very low frustration threshold.
So I have stopped listening to political programmes 8 to 12 hours a day, sometimes even more, and I hafe switched to listening to music.
Also, after following global politics since I was a child -with the help of my obsessive dad- it’s clear that certain things come back.
Some of the stuff that bothers me so much:
Our economic system works according to the Matthew principle, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Satan is a siamese twin known as the USA and Israhell. I got kinda tired of seeing Palestinian childern murdered by Israeli snipers who killed them intentionally. I am tired of seeing how Saudi-Arabia can kill, and gets all arms it wants from the west. Am mainly tired of seeing overworked, angry people voting for corporate funded politicians who keep the policies in place that keep them overworked and angry…
While I am taking a break from politics I realize that these things make me far happier:
- spending time with friends
- being surrounded by nice things such as teddybears, good tea, fine food
- surprising people
- talking and listening to lots and lots of sweet people
- working, I love my work
- wining and dining instead of whining and sighing
- having sex
- writing about sex
- cheering people up around me
- positively influencing people
And you know what?
For the first time in 12 years, 12 fucking years, am finally happy again.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed to my happiness the past couple of months. Hope I have been able to do the same for you.
