Why do you think most people now a days are withdrawn, depressed, lonely, and afraid, and what can I do to change that?

Turn off TV, radio, and all other technology... Get out of doors, exercise .. walk and say hello to people you've never met

When I do that they all shrink away scared think i mean them harm in some way . I guess I look intimidating cus I'm big and got a beard . If i walk down the street most people walking the other way will cross the road and pass me on the other side .

Right me too let it be so i guess . Sometimes its kind of funny though . But it's still weird I'm one of the most easy going people around well unless it calls for something else. Most regular people would say its hard. But every street wise s. o. b knows dont mess with this.

Life style changed, people values changed, some people are still stuck in the past cause they don't like the present time. Others hate the fact that they have missed what we call (the good old days) and see no love or boundaries to set their world on course. They are not happy in what they have and worst they don't know how to change that! Life is on a run and we are trying so hard to keep up. I am asking myself the same question everyday and still don't know how can i fix that :(

Report as
lol gerardd we live in a very civilized desert :p yes we do have tree's and all and in summer it's soooo hot it reaches 55 degree sometimes. i speak english cause i've learn it since i was little at school, it's a must to learn english here.
Report as
That is about all i think. It is amazing to me that I can talk to you like this where in the real world we would never have the opertunity to do so or even would take the time to if we did have the opertunity. And seem to think along the same lines about life in general. Just an interesting observation to confirm that people all people deal with the same crap and come up with the same way of seeing it all . How maybe you and I see it like it is and the guy next door sees it somewhat different probably like the idiot who lives next door to you . Ya know what I'm saying ? The variances there is among us on planet earth are not so widely different.
Report as
I lived in the desert here would get 120 f in the summer not many trees . Not meant for humans to live like that. Road runners and lizards yea but to stinking hot . I had a stucco house that I could feel the heat radiate off the walls at midnight. I had to haul my water. And the thief's out there are plentiful , no work i use to work for a real estate co cleaning and painting apartments when people moved out. A big military base is there so i would get stuff the marines would leave behind when they moved. Ammo boxes were cool to get they make good tool boxes and all sizes for all kinds of my junk
Report as
sounds intersting. i met a marines once here and i was dazzled by the way he walks. It's like watching a movie :p

Technology. Lack of parental support. Society's expectations.

What can you do? I'm not really sure gerardd. There's a program called big brother/big sister, maybe you could look into doing something like that.

Their phones and technology is taking them further and further away from having a real conversation with others and they forget how to act in public. My advice? there's really not much we CAN do about it....

I see that too is what has made people so distant and un trusting not to mention the news over and over the same negative input they give

It's cause they have no motivation like our founding fathers did. They are also fed the lie of (dime a dozen-ness) by evolution... They feel the don't have anything to give. If I were to suggest anything for helping. I'd say become an evangelist. The word of God gives Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-control. It speaks of God giving gifts to all and no one is better or worse. If you're feeling low, just think of your ideal person of being the most accomplished and think "That is who I am in God's eyes!" Or if you think you are better then someone, think of the worst most disgusting, deplorable wretch that you can think of, say "my sins are no worse then his. I'm sorry for belittling your children O Lord..." That is my suggestion. Take it if you will.

That is so very true and i agree without The Lord in our live there isn't much to hope for
Report as
It is called the fruit of the spirit because it comes from the Holy Spirit and nowhere else. Best way to understand the Holy Spirit is read alot of psalms, proverbs and the letters.
Report as
That and what iv found is just shut up and listen
Report as
Yup. But I've taken that and it twin to heart ("Pray without ceasing.") always let God in. Let him be your guide and your pal. I see the God-head as Father, Groom, Best Friend. The Holy Spirit is the Friend of friends the spirit among spirits and the gift of gifts. Just as God is God of gods and King of kings. The one that stands above.

This world is a disgrace, sometimes I'm embarrassed to say I'm human.
Report as
I know what you mean .
Report as
I know. I have a horrible pain in my heart when I hear about the times of suffering that the Japanese go through. I read Sadoko afew years ago and I was in tears when I heard about the pain our bombs brought to her... She wasn't even in conception when they fell yet the effect made he ill when she got older. They didn't live anywhere near the bomb exploded... She said she was lucky I said I'm truly unlucky... To be on this side of the gun feels awful...
Report as
Yea and they try to convince us its necessary thing and were the (good) guys. Politicians and their agendas what a world. May the Schwartz be with you
Report as
I like the feeling of being a good guy but it has its price I celebrate and mourn for the same thing. I've found that feeling the opposite emotions at the same time is the only way to find balance in my peace.
Report as
Man, I would never condone a war or bombing anyone pe country or religion. I'm a peace, love & mungbeans type chick. It sicken me to my core that anyone can destroy a persons existance for their own benefit.

However what of the bible? God and his people killed lots of people... Some of those people were just in the wrong land at the right time or the right land at the wrong time... The bible speaks more of the wrath of God then anything else...
