This dark age of irrational thinking is in terminal decline.

Except in America.

Re: Anger Management
Bottom Line: God owes me. And if He doesn't exist, someone sure owes me!

Someone? Like who? The Universe?

What do you think you are owed? Wealth? You have life and self awareness, not bad for a collection of molecules. Everything else is up to you.

I think you are consumed by resentment because some other humans have more wealth than you.

If you want more fulfillment in your life, figure out what will make you satisfied and whether you are willing to do what it takes to get there and whether your goal is achievable.

I'm pissed that the digital photography tools I use everyday were not invented decades earlier so I could have spent more of my life doing what I love most.

Everyone has something in their lives they are pissed about, but you look to me like you have a lot more to be thankful for compared to several billion of your fellow humans.

Don't waste your life waiting for god or the Universe to reward you with happiness. The only reward you get is life.

Re: Anger Management
Thanks. I hope you DO return to strong health.

Thanks!

I need to quit being so selfish and thinking only of my own problems.

Maybe think of your "problems" as guides that outline what is needed and feasible to make them less problematic.

In my experience life is not just your job or just your barriers. Life about the journey to fulfillment and rewards rather than the destination. If the journey isn't challenging then the destination will seem empty.

For me, the images I'm most pleased with are the ones that were the most challenging.
