A Guide to Living With Roommates

As a 19 year-old college student, I've found myself, on many occasions, wondering why my peers have such a hard time being on their own. I owe a lot of credit to my parents for raising me to think for myself and rely on myself as often as I can. Given, while I'm under their roof, I have no choice but to accept the love and attention my mom insists on giving me. 

So far, in my few years as a young adult, I've lived at home with my parents and sister, I've lived in a dorm with my best…

The Benefit of Courtesy

A story of courtesy woe.

Jim hurried along the crowded street, mindful of his upcoming appointment.  His determined demeanour belied the nervousness he felt about  his morning meeting.   He'd planned the morning perfectly, making time for a relaxing coffee before heading up to his meeting.  Of course, the train had made him a little late, that was…

On Overcoming Adversity

Our lives are filled with strife.

We struggle.

We endure.

We fail.

We move one step forward to go 10 steps backward.

We yearn. For ease. For comfort. For “enough”. For success. For more.

Oftentimes, we look out into the world for answers. We look for clues to make life easier. We read self-help books. We blame “them”. We elect politicians who we believe have greater interest in our success rather than their own.

We… Continue

May I ask for some advice or help?

I quite enjoy the articles I get from AOM, they have really helped out a lot. I'm really struggling lately, I feel like I'm really loosing myself. A couple years back a girl I was madly in love with was murdered. I'll skip the long story but it really messed me up. Ever since then I really haven't been myself anymore. I found comfort in my career (marine conservation) but for a few months I've been unemployed and all the spare time is really getting to my head. I thought I was doing okay…

Opinions on civic organizations?

My first choice is Freemasonry. However I may not be able to find a sponsor as many friends are lapsed. Also I'm very open amongst my friends on Facebook about my struggles with depression and aspergers. For while I was posting cries for help. Somebody on my friends list belongs to my local Lodge. So I may have screwed myself out of that.

If I was real popular guy, I'd start "The International Order of The Bow Tie" where distinguished gentlemen organize social outings of refinement,… Continue

End of a friendship, the search for new ones

Feeling sad over the loss of a close male friend. I fear that I won't find friends which I share a deep bond with. The best I can do is hang out in bars and collect more drinking buddies. That's what I don't want. Zero loyalty. Gone when the drink is gone. How do I meet friends with good souls and character? I'm not religious so church groups are out. Can I even develop close friendships in my 40s? Where should I look?
