What the HELLLL!!!???

Excuse my language. But seriously. I just got some news about someone I love that broke my heart. I feel like hell is just right here, on this earth with us. WHY do we let things into our lives that will hurt us, and those we love??? Why do we do it? It's not like those things actually bring us any happiness, even hardly momentarilly! They add to our misery. Why do we put things ahead of our spouses, children, family and true friends? We know they will hurt us in the end, and we still do it. I am terrified for my children. I am so discouraged that there isn't any chance that they will be able to make it through this life and be happy, confident, good, honest, caring, compassionate human beings. Satan is right here with us, and I am freaking pissed at him! There is an epidemic of selfishness right now, and I am not saying at all in any way that I do not suffer from selfishness, but what is with people??? All we have to do is treat others with kindness and respect and try to put their needs before our own. If we all did this, then WE WOULD ALL BE HAPPY!!! Imagine that!?
Why do we think money, worldly possessions and power will make us happy. The only thing that will bring us true joy is our relationships with the people we love. If we know this, then why do we place such importance on the other things?
Venting, sorry if you are reading this and I ruined your day/night.
I am ANGRY, sad, heartbroken, scared, and feeling so helpless right now. How do we stop this???
Wow, this not pretending everything is perfect is really nice. I can just act psycho for a little bit, let it out and feel better :)

I totally agree with you! The world freaks me out. I am so sorry that so much heartache is so close to you right now. You will get through it and my only hope is the knowledge that if I am doing the best that I can (which I can control) then my kids will be ok too...now I just need to make myself do the things I know I need to do instead of want to do.

Amen sister! It' s a crazy selfish world that we live in and definitely scary. I guess we just do our best then leave the rest to the Lord. Everything that we can't control is in his hands, but it is really hard to surrender that sometimes. I know that you know all of this, I think I'm writing it more for me than for you. Sorry to hear about your friend. See you later :)

I'm sorry!! The world is a scary, scary place. It is ridiculous how much power satan has isn't it?? I hope whatever is going on will get better. The best thing you can do is be an example to your kids no matter what. even when there is crap going on, you let them know what is right and guide them with your strength

I recommend shutting the door to Satan. Don't let him in. Bad things happen and they will continue to happen, but we don't need to internalize them. Good people get cancer, righteous people pass on, wonderful people get divorced, but it's our decisions that determine who we are. Not what happens to us. So we teach our children to make good choices. We teach them what is right. We're so blessed to have the Holy Ghost to guide us. And! We've already chosen which side we are on. We just have to "REMEMBER!" And Sheri, I love you.

Hey Sheri! Sorry your having a tough time right now. I too am going through some "new transitions" right now. If you ever need someone to talk to don't hesitate to call 480-244-8750. Your kids are so adorable and you look great! Talk to you soon!

Yes, I have had similar feelings this week with being frustrated with other peoples actions. The only think I can think of is let the change begin with me. We can't control other people only ourselves. On the other hand there is a lot of good out there too and that is what you have to hold on too.
