    Hey everyone, The Thursday Cafe is open and today's special is Pride!!!

    Yep it's Thursday here at SF.

    So welcome everyone.

    Instead of just random stuff, we have a thread for that "Random Chatterings", I thought maybe instead we could talk daily about things that affect our lives and our decisions. Especially as it relates to suicide, I mean that is why we are all here, right? I mean we either want to end it, or know someone who has?

    So....I thought today we could explore, Pride.

    Being proud and having pride in something isnt bad. I was proud the days on which my children were born.

    I was proud the day I won first place in a drum solo contest.

    Being proud or taking pride in something good isnt the kind of pride I was wanting to explore.

    Rather I want to look at the dark side of pride.

    I think (if we are going to look at what keeps us from being happy) that we should dive into the serious nature of pride.

    You know the old, I don't give a damn what people think mentality and so on.


    So...the topic is set, the coffee is hot, and the tables are clean!

    Come on into the cafe!

    Yep...I too was like that. Now I am my own man, and damn what other people think. I never did quite get the whole cliche thing although I tried for years to fit in.

    Afternoon all.
    I feel pretty awful today, I had a dream I was kidnapped along with my 10yr old nephew and about 5 other people I recognised but didn't know personally.
    It was the strangest thing and made me feel really powerless! I woke up with huge bags under my eyes, so I know I definitely didn't get a good nights sleep! lol.
    And I should be feeling good today. After all those weeks whining about not getting into college, I finally got on to a course yesterday. It's the first step at least.

    Damn! Story of my life, I get here and everyone's gone somewhere else.

    Never mind, I'll just sit here and have those tequilas I missed out on yesterday.

    Sometimes I think I put too much stock in my pride and that's what I end up with; my pride and nothing else. It's a lonely place to be.

    That's a really sad statement. What do you mean by pride here? (That's a serious question - I'm interested to know how you see pride.)

    (btw can I buy you a tequila?)

    Do you need to put up a post, Chargette. BTW...Pride can be a sin.

    But I am here for you. :hugtackles:

    I went home pissed and I got my salary from summer work by today's mail... It was less than I expected, and upon that, I got a letter about paying tax too (in Sweden, nearly HALF or even more of what you earn goes away as tax. Americans, don't say that your "tax" is high :p). I got even more pissed... Then my brother said that the tax-thingy wasn't accurate as I'm under age. I phoned someone and checked it, and he was right. Pew. That saved my day from getting even worse.
    Now I'm happier, I'm reading a magazine I bought today for the moment. Grandpa is doing okay, and tomorrow I only have two periods on my schedule as one has been cancelled.
