Adrift At Sea




So lately I have been spending a lot of time thinking about the lack of a really driving force in my life.  It seems that while every one else seems to have a driving force a goal that they are striving towards I am adrift at sea riderless with no idea what direction I'm going, nor what direction I want to go in. I can even look at my brother who did head start for the last two years of high school, and graduated both high school and technical collage with a degree and went straight into the welding field and is already building a career doing something he loves.  Yet I me I seem to have not found an ambition that drives me at all.

It just seems that nothing seems to come along, and no matter how hard I think I have tried nothing has worked to help me find that one driving force that career that will drive me.  It just seems that every one else knows and I don't.  It seems the only constant thing the only thing in my life that has not changed, the only thing besides faith that has helped get me threw the darkest points in my life is my desire to find that right man and raise a family with him. If I could have my way in a perfect would I would be a stay at home father, But I know in this day and age that is not practical


know I should be going to school, I should be studying working towards a career something to spend my life my working years poring my energy into, my coworkers and friends always tell me that always ask me what my interest are.  But that's that problem I don't know I don't really have any driving interest, I don't really have any that impassioned me, or at least that when I'm at the points in my life where I don't care about living, I don't have any that I care about that I have any drive to do anything about, they are just things.  Parts of the life that I at the time don't care about living.


I do some times wonder if I will ever any more find lasting happiness, let alone have a long term relationship. (I know I'm only 22) the longest one I have been in was my very first one which lasted about half a year, unfortunately he got scared away in part shortly after I suddenly slipped into one of my depressions and had one of my suicidal fixation breakdowns (unstoppable racing thoughts of how to kill my self and just wanting to do so with ever fiber of being) fallowed by being deeply depressed and disinterested in life in general. the other two where much shorter lived, with the second ending due to total lack of sex drive on my part (again its ether all or nothing with that aspect) last most recent is far more complicated and I will not go into here. I seriously wonder if I will be able to maintain a long term relationship, as most people with all rights expect relative stability in emotions and sex drive.  They don't expect to have there partner suddenly plunge into having suicidal thoughts and wanting to kill them selves, nor do they expect to them to go from wanting to do it literally all the time to having no desire to do it at all. I guess all I can hope is that what I am doing now to try help make much better works, although I still wounder what kind of effect it will have on potential relationships.

I have gotten off track, thank you for your patients with the detour and now back for the closing. So I have often found my self wondering how one finds their driving force, how they find the passion for that career path that they choose. How they find that out of every thing, is it chance, is it something they spent countless years searching for, is it a combination of both?  Have I just not had my light bulb moment yet? Have I wasted years of my life not knowing it, have I not looked hard enough?  Or are all the questions really just all one and the same?

Insight Into Myself From Article Together Alone: The Epidemic Of Gay Loneliness

So I recently read this article on The Huffington Post Hightline called Together Alone: The Epidemic Of Gay Loneliness this article is one that I would highly recommend reading.  It is an article that touched me in a significant way.  The article fouces on why even thought the gay community has come a long way in gaining equal rights, it still suffers from high rates of suicide, depression, anxiety and substance abuse.  The article points out that "are between 2 to 10 times more likely then straight people to take their own life. Where twice as likely to have a major depressive episode" And this pattern holds up in countries that where even early adopter to things like gay marriage.  While there virtually no study on the subject in the US in Canada it has been found that more gay men a year die from suicide them they do for HIV/AIDs if those finding are to hold true in the US suicide could be the next major epidemic with in the gay community taking countless number of lives…

This I Believe: God Is Still There Even When You Want To Die

I would like to share my This I Believe essay that I wrote for my English class.  The essay is based on the format of the essays on the this i believe  web site, which is dedicated to this types of essays.  They are modeled after a 1950's radio show hosted by Edward R Murrow by the same name, where every one from World leaders, CEO's and Celebrities to Teachers, and Secretaries would send in essays and the ones that where selected would read them on air.  The essays are between 450 to 600 worlds long and would take about 3 minutes to read aloud at a natural speaking pace. The essays are about a guiding value in your every day life.

When We Rise Review.

I know that I am late to the game on When We Rise on ABC, but I have just finished watching it on demand.  I would say if you have not watched it, it is a must watch.  The series is very well put together, and it gets you wrapped up in it from the very start, and you will want to binge watch the whole series in one sitting, This the cinematography in this series is first rate, and the use of music helps to increase the emotional impact of this series, I have to admit that I teared up multiple times through out the series, as you get so deeply engrossed in what is going on that emotionally you wined up placing yourself into what is going on.  While I wish that they had put in a few more things in the gay rights movement it really dose a very thorough job of showing the fight for equality.  More after the jump.
