Would u quit your job. If you have hit the lottery » Post #13

Fri May 12, 2017 22:49 in General Talk

Don't worry pinkokdhan123 - just having a little laugh at your expense (we know you have a good sense of humor).

I think we all hope we won't change ourselves or our lives if we come into money, but who can tell? Having more money than they will ever need can do strange things to people. Some become more charitable, others become terrified they will lose/waste the fortune and become miserable misers, unwilling to part with even a cent unnecessarily & not taking the newly-available opportunities to enjoy life & expand their experiences.

I don't know what I would do if I won the lottery. I would want to move out of my public housing flat, but a million dollars won't buy a house in Sydney (not even an old one). I love where I am located now, and would rather stay in my run-down government housing near the city than move a long distance away. Though I think that, if Australia had a decent Internet network, ultimately I would love to buy a house near the beach somewhere up or down the coast & just spend my later years relaxing fishing, bushwalking & taking regular interstate & overseas holidays.

Some money I would give away, but I am estranged from much of my family as they cannot accept my mental illness & have never been willing to accept my apologies for things I said when I suffered severe psychotic episodes over a decade ago. I would help my Mum & Dad who have stood by me, but not my siblings who deserted me when I most needed their help.

My guess is that services for those suffering from mental health issues & the legal problems that often come as a result would be beneficiaries of a decent proportion of what I won.

is it hard to forgive and forget....? » Post #13

I'm a very forgiving person. It means I do not always win, and sometimes I get taken advantage of, but being able to forgive & forget means that I can put things behind me and move on with my life without bitterness eating away my insides.

We cannot change the past, so why continue living in it? Sometimes we need to move on (as hard as it may seem to do).

Forgive & forget does not mean literally wiping what happened from your mind. It is about acknowledging that you can't change what happened, and getting on with life without the memories of what occurred holding you back.

I class being unable to forgive or forget as a form of bitterness, and we all know what they say about bitterness. That it is like taking poison & hoping the other person will die, or that it is a cancer that eats the host from the inside.

If you cannot forgive or forgot, then you are also denying the other person the opportunity to make things right again.

Of course, some people are just bad for you & should be cut out of your life, but I've found that, in the main, most people who do the wrong thing feel embarrassed & ashamed that they have let the other person down & want to right the wrong. That requires forgiveness from the wronged person.

sympathy or empathy » Post #2

Mon May 08, 2017 16:26 in General Talk

Very much in agreement with you. When you are not well, you do not want sympathy & people telling you how sorry they are for you. You want people understanding what you are going through, and being able to "feel" whatever it is that you are feeling. Empathy is one of things that makes us human.

Sadly, empathy seems to be losing its "coolness" around much of the planet these days. If you show empathy & understanding towards others, you are more likely to be called (disparagingly) a "do-gooder" or a "soft-touch" rather than be called a decent, kind person.

This topic reminds me of the Deep Purple song Space Truckin':

Quote:We had a lot of luck on Venus
We always had a ball on Mars
We're meeting all the groovy people
We've rocked the Milky Way so far
We danced around with Borealis
We're space trucking round the the stars

Come on, come on, come on, let's go Space Truckin'
Come on, come on, come on, Space Truckin'

Anyway Tas, can I hitch a ride to Uranus? I heard that is where Klingons like to hang around ;)

Kiss (1980, 2001)
Skyhooks (1983)
Canned Heat (1983)
Deep Purple (1984x2) *George Harrison (ex-Beatles) jammed with them & I was 10 rows from the front
Motorhead (1984)
Iron Maiden (1985)
Midnight Oil (1986)
Jimmy Barnes (1987)
Billy Joel (1987)

Plus a ton of good Aussie pub bands - very few Friday or Saturday nights were spent at home during the 1980s.

Bands I wish I had seen but was too busy following 2-bit heavy metal bands around Sydney at the time:

Pink Floyd
Dire Straits

Actually, very inexpensive.

I think it works out to be less than $7 for the entire meal (including dessert). I'm on the single pension, and after paying my rent, gas, electricity & Internet for the fortnight I usually have around $500 left to buy food & whatever else.

And eating healthy fresh food is generally a lot cheaper than takeaway/home delivery or pre-prepared meals.

Doing it at home - only takes half-an-hour or so while I listen to the evening news in the background.

To be honest, I think your meal sounds a lot more complicated to make than mine. I just need the stove griller for the meat, and 2 saucepans plus a microwave container for the vegies. The apple sauce & dessert custard I don't make myself - they're from the supermarket shelf.

Yes. I've heard that it is good to put a tablet or two in the washing machine if you want the collars of work shirts to stay nice and stiff.
