    Antinatalism?

    Let’s get DEEP. Not really though. A quick and easy post lol. I’ve only recently discovered Antinatalism and I’m baffled. Not wanting to have kids for any reason including environmental I get.. but to say giving birth is immoral… are there really people who find life so terrible??? I mean I CPTSD! I’ve been held at gun point by my own father! I lived a life of pure panic attacks! AND I’ve attempted suicide countless times!

    To me suicide wasn’t about life on the whole being bad but about being able to find a way to free myself from the abuse and the nightmares of my own mind. But I’m still here. And I’m glad I am! Because yes overall my life sucks but each good thing I have I greatly appreciate and enjoy. If I had to relive my child abuse or undo my very existence… I’d relive my child abuse. Because SOMEDAY my life would improve and I think that’s way better than not living at all regardless of the suffering. Pleasure is wonderful. Joy is wonderful. It is not less consequential than misery. Have you ever had someone say something nice when you thought they’d say something bad? That’s a wonderful experience!

    In my darkest times I had a fantasy to escape to in my mind. If I didn’t exist I wouldn’t have that ability. And I’ve grown quite attached to my nonexistent coping world. In life I can buy cute clothes and doll myself up. If I didn’t exist I couldn’t do that. And I absolutely love reading! The creativity others have in their minds is just so amazing! If I wasn’t alive I couldn’t appreciate their works! And sex…. Can’t have that if you don’t exist.

    I also I guess I find the birthing is immoral argument so strange because I believe the opposite. I believe the only way to fix this world is to create well and stable human beings to send into it. Though personally I plan to adopt as I’m currently scheduling loose skin surgery after losing 180lbs. It’s expensive surgery and I’ll be in debt forever so yea no babies from the body I’m paying to fix.

    I can only imagine people who find life so inherently awful are avoiding positive experiences. Or perhaps they really just don’t realize what they have? That every seemingly mundane task is a positive event worth living for. Either way it’s mind boggling for me. I can’t help but wonder if some people say they believe in it cause it’s a fad? Like when a celebrity endorses a diet.

    Calm is a superpower…#calm #Thoughts #selfawareness #MentalHealth #Philosophy

    Bruce Lee was a Hong Kong American actor, filmmaker, martial artist, and the inventor of Jeet Kune Do, a style of martial arts. He was also an impressive philosopher who had a brilliant outlook on life.

    These are my favorite bits of advice from him.

    1. Be yourself no matter what.
    “Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”

    2. Don’t be afraid to own your mistakes.
    “Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.”

    3. Don’t waste your time on nothing.
    “If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of.”

    4. Always go with the flow.
    “Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.”

    5. Don’t anger on a whim.
    “A quick temper will make a fool of you soon enough.”

    6. Humble yourself.
    “Showing off is the fool’s idea of glory.”

    7. Whatever you do, give it your all.
    “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

    8. Life is about more than yourself.
    “Real living is living for others.”

    9. Strengthen your endurance.
    “Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one”

    10. Develop love wherever you go.
    “Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.”

    11. Keep it positive.
    “As you think, so shall you become.”

    Nothing on TETRIS #Philosophy #Poetry tiger

    We begin to think. They need to tell us something stutters the tiger 🐅. I must be left by my lonesome. For what! I'm in the right after all. No one can question it. My authority. I am a saint. I deserve retribution. Emo was listening what can I do my liege? I want to end your impatient suffering. Ah ha It so happens that I am in need of a better life. Emo insists he can do anything and the tiger 🐅 paws at the dirt. Let me introduce you to other avenues sir.
    I like the old avenues just fine I just want people to treat me better.
    Maybe you could use some baby tigers
    I'm afraid I would eat them.
    Oh dear. We can't have that than you will have to recognize the consequences. Love is the awnser.

    Nothing on TETRIS #Poetry #Philosophy Lion

    The earth is mine. And it's inhabitants are breathing still. I can hear the air whisper my name. Whatever could be done about that the lion grumbled. And than laugh's. Always wanting. Whatever it wants. The lion tilts his head what do you want as the collective comes nearer. Come out and face your demons Lion. Cons exclamation. What is this rumor says you've lost your mind? They say you've been acting emotional? Emo says. Yes and we need to talk to the old lion asked xcell. I'm trying to dream not sleep these weenies were talking about there dreams. Something about a new place to live. So I'm following them to see if it exists? You know there is no such thing as a place in unmanifested space. But they said they could make themselves kings. Come back to us we need to be subjecated first. And who would I be? Perhaps general of the unmanifested infantry and you can kill the king when he comes back 🖤

    Nothing on TETRIS termite #Poetry #Philosophy

    You think this is the time for bitching? Con sparks. Ah ha ha a termite exclamation. We are just paying attention to your I'll sense of humor. The only thing I'll is my sense of direction. Imagine how I see others but really grippy at times. How am I supposed to compare to that. Bitching is that supposed to be contemporary. I can barely connect a consensus. When did democracy adheal to such fairness. Our foundation exists because of stereotypes. The military can see to that. Infact you should be able to ask who anyone is. What's this right to privacy bit. SINCE WHEN IN OUR HISTORY HAS THERE EVER BEEN A COMMONALITY WITH EVERYONE! We are not civil we are corrupted. Our government is only enacted by the issue of where it exists. In the mind it's only become weaponized. And the future depends our aquired interest. I believe that.

    You will heed our warning. Won't you! Said the little rosey red. You are not allowed to be that way and that's that. The sky was pink with little sunlight. You could see the stars and the moon was full. You really think it will cost me that dearly? Do you? Con spoke for the collective. And what do you think are we just spoke to go through the motions. Is that it? The rosey red smiling says yes! With a cheerfull sherade of swimming. Emo wants to know if it will mean anything if they do? The rosey red replies only if you intend to conform. Xcell takes a deep breath. What I'm thinking is that we were supposed to improvise instead of what we do normally but we can express ourselves openly too. The rosey red gets angry and screems you think it will be easy don't you! Con gets up saying it will be plenty hard thinking about what we want to do. But that doesn't mean we're not civilized. The rosey red replies I will make it my business. Hu! You say your civilized bit you have no agenda. It's too late we will have fun with out you

    Nothing is wrong! 😈 Oooahhh how is important we already know why! Don't we! Con is screaming at the top of his lungs. And then the ground starts to move. And out pops an earth worm with a cone shaped head. He asks Con he says maybe there is more to why?? Xcell looks through the glass. Do you think we care?? The earth worm gets up. Do you really want to be the same?? Emo hastes back we are very much the same and very fine ...yes? But what if you could be better? We don't desire power yet that is what you speak of. I know you better than you think. Says the earth worm and I am only persuaded in my thought to think that you want to continue being yes continue being... Emo asks the earth worm is that so wrong? Well says the earth worm there is only one way. You see someone has to allow you to be that way. And I just came here to say you are not allowed to be that way. Because I won't let you. You see my point there are all sorts of things you're not allowed to do and being regards one of them.

    Everything appears to be in order. Just getting ready for the confusion to kick in. I think some people want to be confused though. I guess they are misunderstood too. But to harvest such a thing as ideal as madness is imperfect trueley. You must posess the ability to use a perspective denver and I'm saying this to you because I don't know how it's supposed to be. But I can fantasize and even anticipate how you would react. The minnow looks around I have been waiting for you to come. Let's see. I guess we need to guess at some point of being here. Yes after all we give it some meaning. After all. Let's slam it in. If nothing is wrong than we will make something wrong. Things that are wrong that is more bonified and we can always create problem
