Do Ordinary People Have To Be Brave Too

of course they lie and act like they understand you when in reality they have no clue what your talkin’ bout!

Which is more important to you, people or paper?Or to put it slightly differently, this isn’t about the UK. It’s about the Falkland Islanders.From an historical perspective, the ownership of the Falkland Islands (or Las Malvinas if you prefer) is somewhat disputable, although the Argentinian claim looks more tenuous than the UK one.You can also (as Sam Eiji has pointed out) take the view of the UN Committee on Decolonization that the Falklands are a colonial territory and the UK should vacate them. Personally, I think this would carry more weight ifthe Falklands had any indigenous population. While there is some evidence of Fuegan settlement, the islands were unoccupied when discovered by Europeans. Was there an indigenous population on the Falkland Islands before it was colonized by European powers?the Members of the Committee (The United Nations and Decolonization) did not include the likes of China, Russia and Iraq, who all have recent history of claiming ownership of territories where at least some of the local population disagreed.So, yes, you can make a case that the UK should get the hell out of the Falklands.But.People live on the Falkland Islands. In a 2013 referendum with over 90% turnout of eligible voters, 99.7% voted to remain an Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom.To enact the UN’s Decolonization aims, or an Argentinian claim to the land would therefore mean going against the wishes of the vast majority of the people who live there.In Paragraph 2 of Article 1 of Chapter 1 of the UN Charter, (right after Paragraph 1, which explains why the UN exists), it says that a Purpose of the UN is:To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace;The Falkland Islanders have exercised their right to self-determination. In general, the only thing that can legitimately overrule that is an even larger group of people with an equal or better claim who want something different to happen,So, until someone can find enough people (1,511 would do it, based on the 2013 referendum) with a legitimate claim to the Falkland Islands who don’t want it to remain an Overseas Territory of the UK, there’s no legitimate basis to overturn the Islanders’ view. Given that 90% of the eligible population voted in that election, I think it’s very likely that their view will prevail.

Do ordinary people have a chance at living the American Dream?

it is tough to tell what we are destined to do. Our lives can consistently make dramatic turns in most of the main weird instructions. None individuals can see what lies in our futures. all individuals are born with a objective, despite if we are born to be athletes, great lecturers, heroes or great fans. it isn't any longer as much as us to verify this. we can clearly persist with the direction that He (whoever you suspect he's) has set for us. it is going to come to you in time. I had no clue the place my life grow to be going till some months in the past! good success ^o^

Do you think that some people are born to be more than average or ordinary?

Yes I do believe that. It has a lot to do with their upbringing but if you notice many famous or rich people come from famous or rich ancestors, and, unfortunately, those who were born poor are usually poor unless they have the drive to better themselves. It is difficult to succeed in life if you are constantly brought down by your family, likewise, if a person is made to believe in themselves and strive to be the best they can be that person is usually, not always, but usually, successful. If some people were not destined to accomplish something great in their lives then how do we explain a five year old child who has never had a piano lesson but can play a concerto or the person whose memory is way above everyone else. You can usually tell whether a child will be a success just by looking at them. But then again, you also see that rare individual who no one thought would amount to anything become famous or rich.

Throughout my life I felt the same as you. I knew I was supposed to do something with my life but I had no idea what it was. Unfortunately for me, I didn't discover what it was until I was fairly old and I was only given the chance to do this for only four years before I fell and broke my ankle and had to retire. I wish I had known what it was twenty years sooner. I didn't become rich but I did well and now I miss my job. I know in my heart it was what I was meant to do. I became a teacher and touched what few hearts I could in the little time I had.

Am i a coward or a brave person to be not committing suicide?

If you aren't already on them, you probably could use some anti-anxiety and/or depression meds. And counseling. Suicide is cowardly, but thinking about it isn't; it's an escape fantasy. But it's not healthy to fixate on those sorts of fantasies.

You need to address your diet, as chronically low blood sugar and low metabolism can be a cause of depression. Try to cut out foods with sugar and starchy stuff, they'll give you the munchies later (when your blood sugar shoots up then plummets), and can lead to diabetes etc. Eat lots of veggies (not starchy ones), salads, and other wholesome food. If you're trying to lose weight, you can't do that much of a calorie deficit, it just forces your body to go into starvation mode and your metabolism plummets. Eventually your willpower will be overcome by your hunger, and you'll gain weight because your metabolism is so slow. The whole time you'll feel terrible...not a good cycle to be in.

Be reasonable about your expectations for yourself, don't feel sorry for yourself or sit around feeling sad. Set realistic goals and try to achieve them.

Get exercise! Eating right and exercising will help with your depression, as well as your weight if that's a problem. Go for brisk walks, or jog and walk in turns or whatever you can realistically stick to.

Is it REALLY out of the ordinary for someone to have a child at 14?

My husband's oldest daughter was born when he was 14. Obviously this has meant a LOT of drama in our lives. His ex is insane, kept him out of his daughter's life for years, we fought her in court, etc etc.

Anyway, I have a hard time with the whole concept sometimes. Of course I love my husband. We started dating at 15 and nearly 6 years later we're still going strong. His....indiscretions.... though have always been something I've been a little ashamed of. I don't voice it to him or anything, but I don't really admit it to people in public who ask awkward questions about my step daughter being in Kindergarten while I'm still in college. On Facebook I don't have the year of my birth listed so people can't do the math on how old I was when my step daughter was born. It's just a source of shame for me that I do little things to hide. The weird thing is, though, that I didn't even DO anything wrong!

I don't have any friends who had kids this young. I don't personally know anyone who had a kid that young. The closest thing I suppose is a girl I used to go to school with had a baby at 15, nearly 16. I was at school the other day (college obviously) and I overheard a girl telling someone else about how she had a baby at 13 and her son was 7 now and yada yada. It got me thinking that perhaps 14 wasn't THAT young or THAT uncommon. Maybe I shouldn't feel so ashamed of the whole thing?

Thoughts? I still will never condone having a baby that young, but maybe I can move on from what seems like improper shame.
