I joined so I could ask a question. Why do you consider meditation a spiritual thing? When I ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 7, 2018:
Pretty much the same. I count to four repeatedly or just watch my thoughts pass like clouds,trying not to latch on to any of them. I think it's a physical phenomenon but one that really works.
Humor
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 7, 2018:
Yes but I fear reality is putting them out of business. They just can't top the absurdity of this administration.
I just started this site still trying to figure out how it works. Here’s an interesting question I...
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 7, 2018:
Promote science. It's the only positive choice.
Judgemental bastards!

OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 6, 2018:
My go-to is drinks or coffee somewhere by the beach then a walk down the beach. The sugar sand here is tough to walk in,so it gives you a good idea of how fit the guy is.
Is the Dunning Kruger effect real?
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 6, 2018:
I've definitely encountered it.
Well, friends, I had a very scary experience the other day, and I wanted to share just in case ...

That's horrible.
I'm fine
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 6, 2018:
I relate to this on a deep spiritual level. :)
Does anyone have a history of falling prey to manipulation? My natural instinct to peer pressure or ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 6, 2018:
My best advice is to slow down. I have to check in with myself all the time. Anyone who's trying to rush you into decisions IS most likely manipulating you on some level.

That was a fun show. I remember it. Had a girl crush on the female lead,lol.
If you had an unlimited supply of money how would you spend it?
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 6, 2018:
I'd buy every homeless person a house,set them up with utilities,insurance etc. Buy healthcare coverage for literally everyone. Start a line of quality school/daycare facilities open 24 hours with a sliding scale fee and fund the shit out of climate research and things like world wildlife fund&greenpeace. Then I'd buy an island,move my family and friends there and forget about the rest of the planet.

Thanks for this. My kids loved it too!
How do I stop my negative comments about myself? All my life I've been told, I'm ugly, I'm fat, I'm ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 5, 2018:
Treat yourself as you would a dear friend. Whenever you catch yourself saying things that you wouldn't say to a friend. Stop. Remember that you deserve respect too and remind yourself that the negative self talk is a symptom of your problems. It's not the truth and it's not productive. A friend used to wear a rubber band around her wrist and she would snap it against her wrist to derail negative thoughts.
So true
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 5, 2018:
Mwahahhahaaha haha!
More bathroom humor... kids don't try this at home.

Anyone here a Doctor Who fan? Bonus question, anyone a /Classic/ Doctor Who fan?
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 5, 2018:
Me,me! Grew up watching classic Dr. Who. It was on PBS late at night and my Mom would let me stay up to watch it With her. I vacillate between John Pertwee and Tom Baker as my favorites.

OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 5, 2018:
I hear you loud and clear! I'd be more than happy to call you friend. Seeing things clearly while everyone else is still caught up in illusions is a very lonely feeling. I'm willing to bet there are folks around you who feel the same but are too frightened or unsure of themselves to say so.
Being there - that thing you do Life is tough. Relationships are tough. And sometimes it feels ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 5, 2018:
Listening is key, I think. Really listening and not "waiting for your turn to talk".
Me and my buddy got to meet John Barrowman from Doctor Who! I got A HUG!

Disabled single parenting. Can be overwhelming a lot of the time. When to find time to work on me? ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 5, 2018:
Man the distance thing is such a pain. I'd be more than happy to help with kid stuff if you were closer. Perhaps reach out to your friends,family and even neighbors? I bet there's someone who'd love to help and you may not even be aware.Parenting is tough,much less parenting with a disability. Support networks are healthy for you and your kids.
Psychology
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 5, 2018:
There are people out there who will judge and blame those with mental illness for their problems but I think most of us are harder on ourselves than anyone else would dream of being. I talk to myself a good bit,particularly when I am deep in some task or other. A friend and co-worker heard me one day and absolutely laid into me,lol. He pointed out that I would never say the things I say about myself when talking about someone else.

Would You keep dating someone who felt it was necessary to keep you a secret from their kids?

Can you help me find it???

Alright... let's go there. Polyamory vs. Monogamy or however you want to phrase it... Do you...
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 4, 2018:
I think it's a personal choice. I think if you felt sick when he was with his other partner, polyamory is probably not for you. There ARE good and honorable people out there (monogamous and poly) just keep looking and working on you and you'll be ok.. Don't settle for something that makes you feel bad.

Lefty or Righty
OpposingOpposum comments on Mar 3, 2018:
You missed one. I had a kindergarten teacher who was CONVINCED I was a lefty. She spent the entire year convincing me to use my left hand. I catch a ball,use a knife and everything else with my right hand. Good intentions and all... The fun thing about it is that I discovered in college that I draw geometric shapes better with my right hand and organic shapes better with my left. I have horrendous handwriting to this day though.
