Goddy is my word. [Giddy came from the word Goddy. Old English gidig ‘insane’, literally ‘possessed by a god]’. I'm just bringing it back.
My sister is now Goddy.
We talk a lot. She my favorite sister. I have one non mentally handicapped brother and two mentally handicapped brothers (severe retardation). My brother is very intelligent and could have done a lot for himself. He's gotten by doing different stuff but his mind flies all over the place. He's an ex pat, always talking of conspiracy theories. He's actually able to make friends better than me for which I'm kind of envious although I'm getting better not hat front. People like him- and then my family starts to dislike him when ti comes to him going on and on about the crazy stuff on his mind and not taking hints. But he's so open and extroverted and 'caring' or something that I think people love him at first. He's soooo sentimental like he cries when Price dies and gushes over the wisdom of Bob Dylan. If anything he's kind of mystical. Loves pot.
I used to be Christian. Until the foundations caved and no going back but my sister is now Christian and she's annoying me. We're both struggling with issues- me primarily my social life and her- she got a divorce and is struggling with career but she's found not only god but biblical dogmatism. That's fine whatever helps, I like to live and let believe but she's really goddy and it's hard to talk to people sometimes. One annoyance is when people try to suggest god as a solution. I tell a problem, and I'm always appreciative when anyone would listen to my problems. They're not obligated to, but I want to scream, believe all you want, but let's us use reason to find solutions. If I 'accepted "Him" ' or whatever, my problems would be fixed. Fine if you say they're all in my head. At least that makes sense.
I actually see a place for religious and belief and atheists have not yet created any form of communities that churches provide. A lot of the girls I really like are non dogmatic Christians. I like a traditional type. Actually I like different aspects of progressivism. It's a strange combination. I just see a lot of progressive modernists throw out the baby with the bathwater perhaps. They throw out motherhood, throw out femininity, throw out long dresses and good manners. Each there own but I am not attracted to these (anti) virtues and a lot of time they are found in Christians. I could never date a hardcore dogmatic one or have a family with one, but a lot of the nominal ones are great, though I always like finding these traits in secular girls. Harder to do so in America than Europe. But my sister is goddy. The enthusiasm is annoying to me, but I've been there, and she's trying to tell me- if I just x or y or z- but I patiently try to tell her yes I have x y and z-ed but it goes unheard. She wants to care but she's caught up in a system and her mind is fooled and caught. A caught mind, a caught brain. Is there anything more tragic. I tell her it's the imagination. "God" knows you better than anyone else because "God" is a product of your subconscious/imagination/ which knows you better than anyone else.
So it just annoys me that people try to find solutions to Life's problems by recourse to "God". A one stop shop shut down reason. Well didn't "God" give us reason? And why do we have to "go to him" to get him to provide us peace or help? I asked her this question and she had some answer or other, but I was like, he should do it anyway if we're his children in need. I can't remember what she said but she's Goddy. She's not reflecting on what I say. My dad was always Goddy. I've seen my sister become this way and becoming it more strongly.
Ahh well. I just wanna use reason, look out for number one and get ahead in life.
