“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.” C. Joybell C.
Growing up we were that the good guys always win, and with that came an expectation that life would be fair. In fact, perhaps it made it easier to opt out of paying attention because clearly, this was just how it was. Good guys and bad guys were easily identifiable. Monsters were in scary places and mainly fairy tales that most of us left far behind us as we headed into adulthood full of idealism and dreams.

Another great website with some super practical tips for dealing with the alienation:

Re: Your Sears Automotive Service Station – the Haunting.
A lot of time has passed and I suppose we are proof that restraining orders can be successful if cared for and updated regularly and the two people involved are kept on separate continents.
I am on Facebook now and lots of people post pretty pictures with sayings on them about families and love and forgiveness.
I block them right away. Continue reading
We have a responsibility to ourselves, our families and our communities to see what is happening around us and to do something about it. None of us can afford to wait until we are personally impacted by the many tragedies going on in the world today. If we are not going to act as a world wide community then we are doomed ourselves to stand alone in our own tragedy when it arrives at our door . . . and we have no-one else to blame but ourselves.
