- so I've just emptied my wallet…
Lots of spelling mistakes in there(beer induced maybe) hopefully the world will look better to you in the morning, I have days when I just think what the **** am I doing in my life,job I hate,area I live in going to the dogs and although the above is true and it gets to me,the rest of the time I just let it pass over me.Posted 4 years ago
Agreed…. In fact that is what I told the guy… “sometimes I think that I’ve got problems, but I’m actually ok.”
He then asked what job I do and was surprised to hear that I’m a chippy /joiner. “ah,a normal job”, he said.
Don’t know what my problem is. Some “Hassphase” as you might say in German. Looking at all the **** in town. The rich Arabs, the **** snobs…. With their Gucci glasses, LV handbags…

Ooof, getting deep and I’m getting out now, but before I run off:
Be happy with yourself; strive, but be happy with what you have, not what you don’t have.
Accept. Some people are arses, some are not; try not to get upset with the inequalities that exist (I struggle with that).
Don’t empty your wallet into beggars hands. Do charity work for homeless, try to do something physical to make a difference if it bothers you that much (not being disrespectful of what you did, kind intentions)
Personally, I try to be grateful for every day I wake up and I can see. Not always easy, but works for me.Posted 4 years agoseaversMember

Just chill, have a good sleep tonight and all will feel better tomorrow. Sounds like you an ‘off’ day.
You have described how I feel sometimes. I put it down to that some days life or the system as you say just gets to you. There is a lot of sh*t in the world but it is also amazing. Maybe do something that reminds you of that. Middle of nowhere on a bike sorts me out.
Either way you helped someone. Probably to get drunk or high but it will give them a few hours when they don’t have to think about how awful things are.

spoke to him for a bit… he is 63 years old. was a chemist. lost his job and couldn’t get himself back on track. doesn’t drink. tried living in a shelter, didn’t like all the alcoholics and druggies.
fixies broliies and collects bottles (8c per bottle) for a bit of extra cash.
just thought “what a shit sytem”… don’t know what he’ll do with the cash. don’t care, tbh.
he wasn’t a begger.. don’t give money to beggers, just burgers.
it’s pissing it down now.. proper thunder, lightening and cats and dogs… the lot.Posted 4 years ago
Don’t know why but for whatever reason I felt like shit.
Today started well I quit a job u didn’t want to do. I fixed a friends bike.I went in to town to buy a hat, but had for beers instead. And whilst sitting there I watched the dredges of society/world walk by and felt this feeling of hatred rise up in me.
Met the GF for a meal which I didn’t enjoy. It starts to train, like really piss it down.
On the ride home I see a guy with his sleeping bag in an underpass. I stopped, the GF continued. I emptied my wallet into the guy’s hands….. About. 36€,I think.
Don’t know why. Don’t feel any better for it.
Don’t even know why I’m bothering to tell you.Posted 4 years agoslackaliceMember
That you emptied your wallet and took the time to talk and listen with the recipient shows that today, you made a difference. Despite your feelings of the futility of the system we experience for ourselves.
A real difference.
More real than probably any of us here on STW have done today.
Thank you for reminding me.
Go well.Posted 4 years ago
