    Hate crimes?

    I dunno 🤷‍♂️ I kind of think that adding punishment makes unacceptable thoughts a crime. Am I wrong?

    "he's a mental patient"

    lol. :) Everybody seems to have a role in society. Mostly, it seems to be defined in economic terms...occupation, maybe between jobs, now and then a lady will have the resources and support to be a home maker/stay at home mom...even less often, one runs into a full time dad. and so... My...

    Toxic culture

    Just read about the backlash against Candace Cameron burr because the new network she’s involved with isn’t planning any LGBTQIA’s in their films. And… Omg 😱 first of all gay characters are only in movies if they’re healthy happy and upper class generally speaking. And generally youngish . So...

    Are people overrated?

    I kind of think people in general…other people from each individual’s perspective…are overrated. Not that I don’t care. I don’t exactly feel their pain or anything but I’m definitely not heartless. And not that I’m different from other people. I have my parents. Maybe I’ll find a long term...

    [__ Praise __] (Re)entering society?!?!?!

    I think I figured it out. Jesus and my parents are making it possible for me to be a high functioning albeit labeled individual… In the more modest mainstream of society. Nothing fancy or deluxe but nice and no longer stressed and oppressed on the fringes of society. And…. Backlash. I should...

    [__ Praise __] Dads retirement

    Dads going to be done with his job by the end of the year. He seems happy about it. Honestly? He’s been part time for a couple of years now and I think… It’s time. I praise Jesus for sparing my parents and me blessing us and bringing reconciliation.

    [__ Prayer __] Doing something right?

    Taunting is increasing. But… HOA lady was nice. She complained about my neighbor lol. Parents are kind and supportive. I think they’re both more comfortable around me and expect a bit more of me. Nothing excessive punitive or burdensome just…feels good actually. Then theres people in my...

    what to do?

    I'm 38. Labeled with Schizophrenia. Long suffering, very supportive parents. They started out with very little money, now upper class. I'm the only off spring. OK... So, basically, I would ordinarily -not- be in society. I would also ordinarily -not- be alive. And...nearly 10 years after truly...

    [__ Prayer __] progress, concerns

    back to volunteering soon. I'm thankful. :-) I am...concerned. A couple of night now, I've been awakened at 3-4 AM. Talking outside my window, a hard (HARD!) knock on the front door area...not fun. I have a security system. The security system automatically notifies the monitoring people if...

    [__ Praise __] a good, simple day

    I was feeling kinda...stir-crazy in my place. mama texted pictures, stuff they'd had done to the house. I drove over and... simple fun ensued. lol. :) no -big- thing; I cleaned up some messes the little house dogs had made, we watched ridiculous TV shows, dad came home from work with...

    [__ Prayer __] more outcast stuff...

    I had a pleasant outing with mama, doing some grocery shopping. no big deal, right? about that... these two was vocal about "they're gonna put him away" and "he's got -warrants- ," and..??? outcast. I reached for some milk, some lady near me said "he lives off the government."...

    [__ Praise __] less me, more Jesus (in me)

    :-) I was a patched up weakling when I came to my senses and truly repented and got saved. btw: I'm a borderline socialist, so I really hate the term just fits who I was, then, too well. ugh. -reality, bites- nearly 10 years later... it isn't that I'm 110% on top of all...

    [__ Prayer __] "speak all matter of evil against you falsely..."

    yup. me again. As persecution goes, I have it easy. I think someone tried to kick my front door in (again). This time, I have an alarm system, so the cops were auto-called. no one's laid a hand on me or anything, and...yeah. its just... the mind-game, weird waxing and waning is what's...

    [__ Prayer __] ugh. outcast junk, blessings

    first the very Good! God has blessed my parents and me. they're good to me, I try to be good to them, and...yeah. yeah. bad: mama had me run out and get cat food and some other stuff. she feeds all these cats who come up to the yard hungry. anyway...I went to a discount place in the small...

    [__ Praise __] car trouble :-)

    oh man. car wouldn't start, in the parking lot of a big box store. I'd just done pick up. to top it off, it was close to opening, so a group of employees were on benches out front, and I really felt like they were staring...and they may well have been (note to self: life happens...). and so...

    [__ Prayer __] somebody threw something at window?!!

    ugh. file this one 1 under -needless drama- ugh :-( I have a modest, but nice, 2 bedroom apt./condo. good times. I was chilling in the back bedroom -- it faces out back towards the lake, away from the parking area -- and bam! nothing broke. dark already, so I can't see if someone threw...

    [__ Praise __] stopped for speeding :-)

    yes, this is a Praise Report (!), from -me- . oh man...its happening. -be amazed- I was on my way to my (loving, kind, long suffering) parents' house. I got pulled by a cop. low 60s in a 45! He was cool, calm, collected...and professional. I tried to be nice, but not wimpy and/or "I'm secretly...

    [__ Prayer __] i get it: -outcast-

    that's it. the term is "outcast," and that's...what I've been, what I was, and now I think what I am...but for different reasons. OK. 38, I have what I need + more than I can claim to "deserve" or anything, 1st because of Jesus and 2ndly because of my loving, long suffering parents. I...

    [__ Prayer __] spared...time to -live- ?

    I post a lot. I still tend to complain a lot. :-( Truth? I got truly saved nearly 10 years ago. Had Jesus not seen fit to spare me, I would not have even been alive, then. In my case, it was largely psychiatry...prescribed too many meds, too much (involuntary) shock, on and on... but...
