Are you lonely?
Do you have days when you want to scream, cry, or just hide under a rock? Days when you feel like a square peg in a round world? Do you wonder why everyone else seems so blissfully happy while your life is miserable?
Well, I’ve got news for you: You’re not depressed, you’re oppressed.
If you’re repulsed by the sight of two men kissing each other on national television (NFL draft pick Michael Sam and his “boyfriend”), you’re not a homophobe, you’re normal. Anyone who doesn’t feel repulsed by this act is mentally and morally defective, living in a state of denial, and definitely not living in accordance with nature and God.
If you’re horrified at the thought of grade school girls sharing bathrooms and shower facilities with boys (the law for schools in California), unisex bathrooms and shower facilities in Texas (the law now in Houston), and unisex bathrooms in all government buildings (courtesy of aka Obama), you’re not a bigot, you’re a healthy American. You have genuine concern for the well-being of children. You never expected to wake up one day and find that our federal government and many of our state legislatures are stocked with sexual deviants and perverts.
If you’re fed up with mindless television drivel, agenda-driven movies, unfunny comedians, and satanic Baphomet bimbos masquerading as pop stars, there’s nothing wrong with you. You have good taste. You appreciate art, beauty, humor, and the best in human nature. It’s not your fault that the world of entertainment is now populated by talentless hacks, many of whom have literally sold their souls to the devil.
If you’re heartbroken over relationships that didn’t work out or never happened to begin with, cheer up. The fact that you possess above average intelligence and sensitivity, lowers the number of potential mates and romantic partners that you would be compatible with by a wide margin. (Most Americans are just plain clueless. Would you really be happy in a relationship with someone like that?) Don’t give up though. Love may give up on you, but never let it be said that you gave up on love.
If you’re angry over the lies told to you about Sandy Hook, Boston, Benghazi, Obamacare, the IRS scandal, and dozens of other issues, and that the first two events may have involved crisis actors and elements of our own government, you’re not a conspiracy kook. Healthy skepticism is a good thing, and you’re actually far smarter than the vast majority of Americans. I defy anyone to read the meticulously researched posts on this site concerning Sandy Hook, Boston, and others and come away still believing in the fairy tales we’ve been told by the media.
If you’re confused and feeling that there’s something dreadfully wrong with our country, but you can’t quite put your finger on it, you’re not paranoid. There is something dreadfully wrong. It’s called Leftism and it’s personified in the Democratic Party. Don’t blame yourself. You didn’t know that our once great country would today be under the authority of a Communist, fraudulently-elected president, who just might be a flat-out satanist.
If you’re saddened by the state of your health, take heart. You were never taught at school or at home that our once healthy food supply would now be contaminated with chemicals, manufactured in factories, and unfit to eat. A healthier life for you begins today if you choose to go organic. (See our “Health, Finance & Security Tips” page!)
If you’re distraught over your financial condition and living paycheck-to-paycheck, it’s not your fault. No one ever told you that your hard-earned money would be taken against your will by the government and used to reward illegal aliens, to line the pockets of corrupt politicians and unions, and to bribe the votes of those who prefer to stay home and watch bad television to working.
If you’re especially upset over the current war on Christianity, realize this: the fact that the Left has to resort to so many hostile, dishonest, and evil acts in order to weaken God’s religion is a clear demonstration of just how powerful Christianity is. Don’t leave it to the Pope, the priests, or other clergy to right the ship. If Christianity survives it will only be due to people like you.
If you’re weary over fighting the good fight and ready to throw in the towel, don’t do it. One of Sun-tzu’s first rules of warfare is to make the enemy give up before the fight even starts. Your giving up is exactly what the enemy wants, and everything described above is purposely designed to accomplish exactly that. Don’t give up, get active.
If you’re still feeling down, then take some practical steps right now to alter your mood. Stand or sit up straight and look up. (Did you know that’s it’s impossible to feel depressed while gazing upward, especially at the sky?) Get off all sugar and practice good nutrition. (Study the health discoveries of Dr. Weston Price.) Listen to classical music and read positive life-affirming books and articles. Be grateful for all the love in your life, even if it’s just you loving yourself. (Or the love God bestows upon you through His bountiful food.) It’s impossible to be thankful and grateful without being happy.
If today were the last day of your life, what would be your biggest regret?
Susie Steiner reports for the UK’s Guardian, Feb. 1, 2012, that a palliative nurse who has counseled the dying in their last days has revealed the top five most common regrets we have at the end of our lives.
Bronnie Ware is an Australian nurse who spent several years working in palliative care, caring for patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives. She recorded their dying epiphanies in a blog called Inspiration and Chai, which gathered so much attention that she put her observations into a book called The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.
Ware writes of the phenomenal clarity of vision that people gain at the end of their lives, and how we might learn from their wisdom. “When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently,” she says, “common themes surfaced again and again.”
Here are the top five regrets of the dying, as witnessed by Ware:
“This was the most common regret of all. When people realize that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honored even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realize, until they no longer have it.”
“This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship. Women also spoke of this regret, but as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.”
“Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result.”
“Often they would not truly realize the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying.”
“This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realize until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content, when deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.”
