I feel bad for disabled people and even worse for the parent. I rather have 20 normal kids (which would be a nightmare) than 1 disable kid.
This chart, John Cassidy writes, “goes a long way toward goes a long way toward explaining why Washington politics are so dysfunctional.”
That’s a 19 percent increase in the last 46 years.
People say there’s 6 billion people out there, don’t get so hung up on a breakup. Well that expression is an over exaggeration. The real number of people available to you is much much much smaller. If you’re not bisexual the number cuts in half. You don’t live in every country so the number cuts down even more so. You don’t live in every state. You don’t live in every city. And so the number is basically your county, cut in half for the gender and cut for certain ages. You don’t want to date a 12 year old or a 90 year old. Cut it to the age range. Then cut it again for those that are not single and those that are homosexual. And account for those people that aren’t attracted to you and you aren’t attracted to. And account for competition. Then add one or two people to the places you want to visit or go frequently. Add 20 people more for money, 5 people more for attractiveness, 4 people more for personality and 5 people for intelligence. Also subtract for the lack of money, attractiveness, intelligence and personality. That is the real number of your potential partners. But its easier to simplify to 6 billion and a whole lot more optimistic.
Yesterday I made my sister cry because I told her she needs to do something with her life. And then I had to apologize and all and told her we can go to the beach tomorrow morning because she’s been wanting to go for a while. So this morning she decides she wants to sleep instead of going. Its always like that where I try to engage with her and encourage her but she always doesn’t want to. And yesterday I was beating myself up because I thought I needed to step up my game as a sister to be more interactive and encouraging. But when someone enjoys doing nothing with her life, she shouldn’t be crying because I’m only telling her the truth. Just saying. If the kid doesn’t want to do anything than all the encouragement in the world doesn’t mean shit. That’s why I’m a firm believer that change is from within and nothing another person says or do will change another persons life if that individual does not want to change.
So I encourage people to try anyways because when you think back on life, you can say at least I did all that I could instead of carrying a burden of “I should have did this and that.” Then you start to believe that its partly your fault for this and that.
But then again she’s kinda weak willed and doesn’t tap into her inner strength. So I can’t carry on with my life as is because she’s the person who needs that consistent encouragement to believe that she has not been given up upon. I think most of all she needs to build her self-esteem and self worth. All of us needs to but some more than others.
