DID WE PUT ANY THOUGHT INTO WHAT WE DID/DOING?

As I  look back. I can only shake my head and wonder…Why? Where did we go wrong? From the H-bomb to today.

Need and greed are what took us. From simpler time to where we are today. We have to blame too! Hollywood!  We took our cues and how we are to be.

Little do we know! All of us! Learn as we go along in life and earth. From the TV to what other people think, say, do! We are also! “Followers!” “If! Other can do it?” “so can I!”

I am from the  “Babyboomer” generation. I think we really lost it when? The so-called “Arab oil embargo” kicked in. We showed the rest of the world. Just how depended we are.

Video games! Is another! Cabbage patch dolls! Parents panicking over being able to buy one for their kids. In general! Electric devices. Designer clothes, footwear, jewelry.And so it goes.

We let ourselves get to where we are now! It does not have to be this way!

But! It’s way too late for any change!

Who? Remembers Sears?

I mean! the original sears?

When I was a kid. I remember going to Sears in Cleveland, Ohio USA. Both Eastside & Westside locations in the inner city. YES! In the inner city! Before they moved to the suburbs.

It was a time when? Most of the products/items were (as I understand it to be!) overruns of National manufacturers and Sears bought them and put their name (on some of them) on it.

Sears was back then. What Walmart is today. A one stop, one shop store. Some exceptions. No drug/pharmacy department, no gas station/auto repair shop (as I recall).

Then somewhere between the 70’s & the 80’s! Sears went by way of: “if you can’t beat ’em!”  “join ’em!”.  In other words! Sears “sold out!”.

And now we are seeing an agonizing demise of an American institution. Changes in consumer tastes, convenience, styles, so on.

Not to mention! “GREED!”

K-mart is no better!

NOW! I AM NOT SO SURE!

If I want to get married again!

It’s been three years! Since the split! As some of you may know. The ex and I have divorced. During that time. The conversion was hard. Simply because that is what she wanted me to go through, thinking that I would suffer and cannot make it on my own without her. Little does she know!

But during those three years. I have come to enjoy myself a lot! Being able to do things, buy things and so on. That when I was with them! The ex made extremely sure I did not get or do what I wanted. A few months ago! Not only is she a narcissist! But! An abusive narcissist! In “Drag”! The one thing that kinda stops me in my tracks is just that!

We all! Have our own way of thinking, believing what a relationship is. And that is where we divide. Men think they know! Women think they know!

For me! It does take two to make it work!

It’s just that! From what I went through! It may be years! Before I do decide to find someone.

“I’M IN NO HURRY!”

WHAT DOES IT TAKE? TO GET OUT OF AN ABUSIVE NARSSISTIC RELATIONSHIP?

 

I spent over 40 years in one! The ex! Nearly had me thinking, believing. I could not survive/live without her. Somehow I knew I could. The one too many things! About abusive narcissists are! They sat one thing but mean the other. They abusively “LIE” to a point it’s like an addiction with then. They lie so perfection to a fault that! Other fellow narcissists do not that the people they meet, talk to are “carbon copies” of them as well. They will believe in what they tell them and think nothing of it!

I had a so-called friend (if? He can be called that!) is a narcissist as well. I told both of them. If they ever got together and hit it off! In time! They would go at each other’s throats! And try killing one another! That is how much both of them have in one another. Both of them laughed at it. Normal!

No matter how much narcissism they have. You cannot tell them they are. Because they think they do not have any of it. They may know the word. But! They do not know the ingredients of it.

As unfortunate things do happen. All those years! She antagonized, harassed, pressured me. To do something. At the same time! She knew that I would not lay a hand on her. Then! Came the time! I could not take it at all!!!!!!

She ran her mouth off one too many times. She got What she came looking and wanted! I had the absolute. No choice! I slapped her! It could have been much worse! Considering the abuse I encountered and taken from her. Even I know that.

That was the one! She found me a place to live. Oddly enough!

To this day! I still wonder why? Did she even bother to reconnect with me and get married? No love at all. She pretended to be in love with me. There was nothing! That can/could be called love at all.

All I could think is this. When she and I got back together. I had a job, money, car, investments.

Her! A box that she called her “hope chest. AKA? “Pisspot poor!” And she did not like it one bit!

It’s very hard for a woman who is in one. To get out of it. For me? She made it seem like it was. The conversion was hard! But! I made it!

That one question will always remain! Why? Do they do it?

REMEMBER WHEN GOING TO THE STORE WAS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE?

 

With all these retailers! Closing up shop!

I can remember when my mom wanted me to go to the store which was down the street from us where my parent and I lived. so was the drug store, hardware store, so on.

If we wanted a big ticket item? We had my sisters drive my mom and me to the catalog showroom stores. Or take a bus and go downtown and those big department stores.

Now with some stores that were time tested. Are not slowly. going away. But! Not with the board of directors! Getting their share of “Take the money and run!” job!

For those of you who may not know? What is a “Catalog showroom” store? Depending on the store! You would come in, either the store had items on display. Or You would walk up to a table, go through the catalog they had. Write down your order, present the order to the clerk. She would go in the back, fill your order, bring it to the front, pay for your order, and leave.

We had “our”” discount stores”. And “every day” discount stores. Not much difference in the two. But! HEY! saving money! Is saving money!

The 5 cent & $10..00 stores! There’s a list of them! Some in different parts of the USA! Some National.

Some of them were as well! Within walking distance. But those were small 5 & the 10’s!

It just seems like! Everything! Keeps changing! But not for the better!

IF PRESIDENT TRUMP ASKED YOU TO BE IN HIS ADMINISTRATION? WOULD YOU ACCEPT/DECLINE?

 

I For one! Would not!

Because he disgraces the office and the presidency. By not knowing which end is up?  Is rewarding his heavy contributors, with positions in his administration. All! Have if nothing else? No experience in Government at all!

For someone who has “0” Government, experience. And more than likely. Associate’s, real estate and running, a Government as one of the same.

Ever since Trump got elected. It seems the media has been on his ass in more ways than one! Rightfully, so!

At Present! Four bankruptcies, seven attempts at promoting the “Trump” name. All seven failed.

There is a law what age a person can run for President. There should be too! A law where one cannot run as well. Who do we have to blame for this?  Pres. Trump. When you do one thing! And one thing only for such a very long time! Then go into something else? Well as you can see!

Should there be a prerequisite, for running, for President as well?
