LOL, let's face it, there must be something wrong with me :)...

Sitting here, just not getting why people can't see what I see, again, LOL.

I'm not upset, I'm just confused! It happens so much, people comment on something, other people think it's cool or funny, and I just see human desperation, human suffering, and whatnot...

It's got to be me, LOL... Because I'm the odd one out time and again...

Some guy is selling his life on ebay. Some see a stunt (I see that too, by the way), some see a man being brave and leaping into the unknown, some see a man raking in cash with a clever little idea, and some see a man disgarding all his earthly possessions like a monk heading to the top of a mountain to chant and lose all wanting...

I see a guy trying to run away from the pain in his past, and in doing so, not facing that pain, dealing with it, and finding the good it in (yeah, I'm one of those nutters who believe there is good in every experience, including painful experience - as long as you rise to the challenge and embrace it)...

I see a man whole will repeat his past again and again until he DOES face it...

Hmmm, seriously, I do consider myself an optimisit, I do, LOL... I just wonder if running away will make him happier, or whether his memories (which he can't sell, even though he seems to think they will go with his worldly possession - hey man, it's not like they will become the buyers memories, and they won't just evaporate either) will continue to haunt in another woman's face...

I totally agree with you here Sif- in fact its the first thing i said to DH- "running away wont take the memories away" . One day im sure he will want to look back and think on his past and everything that was a memento of that will be gone - and i think then a lot of further issues will arise.

I don't think it's that people can't see what you're saying...but moreso that that's not what he's actually doing.

I'm sure the guy is totally aware that divulging himself of all his possessions will not change the past he must carry with him. There is some mention in the 'friends' section about them being used to this kooky behaviour - so I'm guessing he's just a guy who wants to do something a bit outrageous...

There doesn't seem to be any real signs of trauma etc to me and I think that's why people don't see it as all that serious.

(oh and you aren't alone anyway...I'm totally used to being the odd one out, or having my comments totally overlooked LOL)

Oh I wanted to say too that I think it makes a difference that he's not *from* Perth yk. Like why *would* you stay there if you only moved there with that person?

I know that I wouldn't have stayed in Canada if DH and I split up whilst we were there...

I suppose i just don't particularly care what some random guy does with his "life" :) I think it's amusing, but haven't really given in any more thought. I don't see it as affecting anyone other than himself - and I believe in the phrase "If it harms none, do what you will".. Is it for me? No way! But it doesn't bother me at all that some one else wants to do this.

Hugs Sif.
I see your point for sure.

There is something wrong with me too- I seem to have a lot of trouble connecting with the humans :P .
