Our main problem is the aimlessness of our life. We have nothing to structure our time, nothing to live for, nothing to die for. We are at loose end, trying one thing after another.
Having said that I must add I have one thing going for me in spite of this aimlessness, and that is a feeling of surprise. I've always being gifted with astonishment of being born in this world, at this time, with an observer attitude without having to worry about what is happening.
The lack of meaning in my life is replaced with this honest observation and laughter. I clearly see that in our life nothing has any value, unless we imagine it does. And that is so hilarious.
People don't have a life of their own, they live for their children. I'm tired of all this bullshit I have to listen to about children. That's all you hear about, everywhere... Raising children is getting entirely too much attention.
Regardless if you're married or divorced, single dads or working moms, who think you're such fucking hero for raising your kids, aren't going to like this post, but somebody's have to tell you for your own good: your children are overrated and overvalued, and you've turned your life in a wrong way. Eventually you'll be disappointed...
You live for and instead of your kids, and it's not healthy. And don't give me all that shit, "Well, I love my children." Fuck you! Everybody loves their children; the love doesn't make you special.
What I'm talking about is this constant, mindless concerns, this neurotic fixation that suggests that somehow everything has to revolve around the lives of children. It's completely insane way of living.
Today's kids are way too soft. For one thing, there's too much emphasis on safety and safety equipment: childproof medicine bottles, fireproof pajamas, child restraints, car seats. And helmets! Bicycle, baseball, skateboard, scooter helmets. Kids have to wear helmets now for everything but jerking off. Grown-ups have taken all the fun out of being a kid. What's happened is, these baby boomers, these soft, fruity baby boomers, have raised an entire generation of soft, fruity kids who aren't even allowed hazardous toys, for Chrissakes! - George CarlinStop dragging your kids all over town in search of empty, meaningless activities to kill time: scouts, swimming, soccer, karate, piano, tennis, bale, salsa, and who knows what else. It's absurd, just for a moment stop it. You want to know how to help your kids? Leave them the fuck alone!
