Disillusioned of England!

Posted: 8 October, 2017 in Comment, Life, United Kingdom

At the moment it is getting more and more difficult for me to live and work in the country of my birth as I am becoming more disconnected to it as it is not the country I was born into but a country which is becoming hard edged and inhumane.

I am lucky where I live as I am isolated from the worse of what is happening in this country as the town I live in is a backwater who almost lives in a bubble of it’s own. But I am surrounded by media and feeling that the country is heading towards a disaster which could of be so easily avoided. All made worse that I feel powerless to change what is going to happen as I feel out of step with my own country and people.

Even recoiling working for a multinational company and my basic ethics and honesty is becoming difficult as my faith in Western Capitalism has been servilely dented by recent events over the past decades especially the 1990s. I have watch Western Capitalism change from something which benefited everyone as it gave a change to all to what it has become a Capitalism which only benefits the few at the expense of the many. A Capitalism which now encourages inhumanity and exploitation at the expense of people’s basic human rights.

In the end I am becoming more and more disillusioned about living and working in an England I do not believe in any more if anything I am starting to hate more and more. I am starting wanting to escape to a place which I can start to grow again and not feel like I just want to give up and not bother.

England is not the green and pleasant land for me any more but a dark and foreboding place with little and no real future!

Once again I wake up not feeling as well as I should for no real reason other than I suspect that the stress from elsewhere has finally caught up with a vengeance. One of those morning when I feel like I have drunk last night when not a drop passed my lips.

At least I am writing this morning rather than feeling totally down about my life and the way I feel. There is always a hope that the day will get better for me. I need to do some writing for two weeks time along with getting some ideas from deep inside me to continue the Vampire: The Masquerade Chronicle towards a spectacular end.

Plus I really want to do some other role-playing projects as I am itching to get both started and finished.

As always my life follows it’s typical pattern of me getting keen to move on only to find that fatigue and lack of self-confidence blunting my efforts to move forward. This as always makes feel frustrated and useless which is closely followed by myself feeling I want to curl up and hide from the world.

So once again I need to pick myself up and start to focus on the future and start to once again isolate myself from the issues around me which I have no real control over or are really irrelevant to my life especially at work. Plus I need to start writing again even if I almost have to force myself to do so as it focuses me on the more positive side of my life.

I have so much writing to do especially connected to my Role-Playing as I want to push a Vampire: The Masquerade Chronicle and Over the Edge Series forward. All because I want to start to push forward finding a group of players who want to play more story based role-playing games locally. All for my own sanity and to build a social life outside of work.

I am start to sound like a broken record but I am not moving forward as fast as I would like and I like to do it carefully rather than in a spectacular way in an effort to change my life.

It is time I stopped being a victim of the people and world around me and look inside myself a gain the strength to become more proactive with my life. As always this is a difficult task because of my depression always giving me that self doubt and lack of confidence to do so.

I need to ask for help from someone!

The situation in Catalonia reflects the general malaise of all western governments in so much they do not or refuse to listen to the very people they claim to represent!

The Spanish government is acting exactly like the United Kingdom Government over Brexit that is running rough shod over the people rather than talking to the people as any civilised society should.

It is a shame to see our so called Western Democracies have become democracies only by name not by it’s actions.

The issues in Catalonia could be so easily solved by the Spanish government asking the Catalans why they want to leave Spain in the first place but as always the Spanish government puts itself above the very people it represents and pay their wages!

It is one of those times when it feels like the whole weight of the world around me on my shoulders to a point I just want to curl up and ignore the world around me. It has the effect of whatever I do even constructive I feel like I have not achieved anything or ever will.

All this is making me feel like a failure and it would be easier to stop totally as nothing is ever going to happen even if I push for something to happen. At the moment I am back to feeling constantly tired and trapped in a life I really do not want any more.

All this feelings are not helped by a world around me which is frankly going mad run by people who are so far removed from reality and not what is needed innovative and humane people to push the world forward. I need to surround myself with people who stretch me intellectually and creativity not people who drag me down to their level of apathy and indifference as at the moment.

So for last week I have been feeling listless, tired and useless with no end in sight which has meant I have done nothing but sink deeper into a depression and it’s viscus circle!

One of those days when I wake up overwhelmed by what I need to do to a point I am once again at a loss to know where to start which always results in myself doing nothing. Though it does not help work is still draining far too much out of me even with myself trying to focus on my own job and try to ignore those around me who are trying to drag me down with their negativity.

So once again I wake up frustrated with myself more than the world around me as I have far more control over myself than everyone else. I am finding difficult to dig deep within myself as the years of allowing others to dictate what I do and believe in rather than having the confidence to plough my own path through life.

All this due my depression over the years which has dented my confidence and self-esteem to a point it really feels like I cannot move forward and make every excuse not to move forward. It as always makes me feels trapped in a prison of my own making as I cannot blame those who have surrounded me as I have always had the choice not to build the prison.

In the end it highlights that I am going to have dig very deep within myself to move forward and choose something new to focus on to break the cycle of my current life which could be earning to be real Storyteller or focus more on running better and more role-playing games.

With all this going inside things have not all been bad as I have managed to do some maintenance on my computers and web sights which included resetting up my own cloud by replacing with fork of ownCloud called Nextcloud which ended up a far better piece of software as it more open source. Add to this I have found a way via the internet to load Google Play on my Fire Tablet which has opened up a load of possibilities on the tablet.

So at the moment my life is one step forward and two steps backwards.
