Yes, it's a great time to be alive, isn't it. We live in a day and age where it's so easy to just ruin people's lives by tossing false rape accusations, or other sorts of slander, and barely any way to combat it. We live in a day and age where we have made so many leaps forward as a race, the human race, and yet people are still so fucking focused on other people's colors to the point of judging them, hating them over it. We live in a day and age where some guys will literally go and murder girls for not wanting to go out with them. We live in a day and age where it's common for people to actually be murdered over the fact that their gender and sex don't line up -- these are great fucking times. Just, great times all around. Except it totally fucking isn't. I can't even manage to list everything about this world and people in general that makes me want to drive an ice pick through my head some of the time. The world is fucked. It's flawed. Barely anything that is actually good happens, and when it does, something else comes about to completely ruin it. If there is a such thing as a God, he's a complete fucking heartless bastard. 'Free will' is fine, but fucking hell, if you're this omnipotent, omniscient being, why are you allowing all of this stupid shit to happen? There is so much more I want to say, but it would just devolve into steadily intensifying expressions of anger over time. I guess what I made this thread for is to ask -- is there some kind of way I can just... stop worrying about this shit? Other people aren't so occupied with it that it leaves them barely able to enjoy things, so what's their secret? How do I calm the fuck down and let it go?
