Last night, I started thinking about the new year. 2006 is on its way.
I started thinking about what I was thinking more than ten years ago. I thought that if we made it to the new millenium, we wouldn't make it too far past. I was giving the world until 2001 before Armageddon came. I spent more than 13 years of my life believing that the world was going to be destroyed by God in a few years.
I recall when I was about seven years old, my mother told me that this world won't last another five years. I believed her. Here I am 20 years later.
The thing that really upset was after I left, I still believed that the world was probably going to be destroyed before the Generation of 1914 died off. Then I found out that they had changed it 6 years previous. I believed in a lie that had been done away with six years earlier! I was so pissed off.
It's sad to think that I believed something so stupid and depressing for years. However, there's always a positive to the negative; I now have my whole future ahead of me to spend any way I want! I can live it without looking for approval from "Jehovah".
I never thought I would make it to 2006. But here it comes, and I welcome it with open arms!
