Haha... Oh bagholder I completely identify with what you write! I was OBSESSED with politics and news... anything to get a rile out of myself and others. I lived to draw others in... let them know how my mind was ticking. I thought everyone was in the same angry reactive state I was. It was all about ME. The more reaction I was able to get out of people the more (or so I thought) I was winning at life. I had to be right.
This was my insanity... It's easy to continue doing this though. Turn on the TV and you see it. I had to ask myself... how I truely felt down in my gut? I was the only one to untimately truely answer this question.
NO single human power could relieve my suffering. It wasn't until I became honest and admitted that what I was doing was destroying myself and everyone around me. I had to identify with those who truly made changes in their lives and did not go back to the same behaviors. I choose not to go there... it was a bad place to live... there is another way and it will rocket you into that 4th dimension of existence if you so choose.
