Singer, we all have demons that follow us around, they lurk in places we can’t normally see them… occasionally when there’re feeling their oats, they challenge you. It might manifest itself in the form of a personal relationship, such as opposition to a close family member’s belief system, or even the abusive behavior of a spouse. Everywhere you look there’s so much madness in the world right now, it would seem the demons are having their way with us. I think a lot of people tend to stick their head in the sand when it becomes too difficult to face what they feel is a hopeless situation. But, I think a hopeless situation remains that way until you pull your head out of the sand and begin to push back.
And, oh yeah, I’m going to Hell too, maybe I’ll see you there.
Good evening JimDe.
lol I'll never again be in hell. Hell is a state of mind that I choose not to entertain. When that state comes upon me, I eat chocolate, take a hot bath and play in the garden. I put on happy music and read romance novels. In other words, I work to move out of that state, to bring my Self up. Fill up with happy and you will feel that way.
I'm really enjoying this conversation.

I believe there is an equal amount of madness as sanity. It just depends on where you put your attention.

This might be because they are not yet ready to move out of the situation. They may not have been abused enough to realize then embrace their own self-worth, or maybe they are destined to become healers. They can't become a healer until after they've experienced being healed and they can't be healed unless they have been hurt, sick or dis-eased.
I've experienced anger even rage from people I had attempted to help when they hadn't asked for help. They defended their abuser or addiction or situation. It came to me that they had worked hard to get into the painful difficult situation they were in. If I helped them out they'd have to work to create another similar or more difficult situation to replace the one they'd just gotten out of.
I now respect another's right to suffer. I am available. All they have to do is ask. Often the best way to help is to do nothing.

I AGREE. Personal responsibility will set you fee. You are only a victim if you believe you are.
It's all so interesting. Thank you.
