This group is for anyone interested in the sport of wrestling, whether you wrestled in school or are just a fan and want to learn.

Thank you for all of the advice and shared experience. I realize now that I still have a completely stable mom that is supportive of my situation. I have some thinking to do about the relationship with my father. He contacted me a couple…"
"Willie, in your entire post, nowhere did you mention where your mother is in all of this. Is she a mature, responsible adult? Are there other adults in your life who seem to be wise and stable, whose advice would be valuable? …"
"Here's what I have to say:
1. I have a great deal of experience with a father who is an alcoholic.

"It doesn't sound like it's imminent -- that is, I don't hear from your post that he's trying to connect. So it's not crucial to decide immediately. If not... maybe when you feel more balanced about it."
Im a a young man, at 17 years old theres still so much more to learn. My parents have been divorced for most of my life so I am used to that aspect of my life.

"I see some readers would like a shorter version. Okay, to summarize, basically if you could create your own paradise, what would it be like? And, do you genuinely think you know yourself well enough to know what that paradise really would…"
"Your argument collapses if I never die though right? And since, I have never before been dead, why should I assume that I will? Just because other people have? I am my own individual, all that is, exist because I have perceived it to…"
"Thank you sir. I do strive to be original. Frankly, many of the posts I have read seem rather mundane and petty, some of them. I think it is important to question one's sense of reality, as it can lead to greater insight into what this all…"
