This world is cruel. I often see young women who are not physically attractive. I don´t think they will experience any joy here.Well, that is the way it goes. Many of us are ugly, some are beautiful, or others like me ruined by the love for alcohol, addictions, diseases, etc.

Raul,
 I understand you are addressing Holden, but I wished to let you know that I have thought about this often.  Consider Arthur Schopenhauer's sister, for example.  Her life seems to have been even sadder than her brother's - even with the wealth inherited.  The thing is though, some of the most beautiful looking women can become the most hurt, abused and inevitably deranged creatures.  This world must take its toll on all, and some of us have been wounded deeply by our experiences as animal creatures in environments.   We have processed the general alienation, damaged by not only "the civilizing process," but by our general experience of what it is to "exist" or "be" --- torment.

There is a great deal of envy, jealousy, animosity, acrimony, etc., ...

(See Love and Respect)

I wonder if seeing a beautiful woman such as Valerie June would cause feelings of ill-will in women not as easy on the eyes.

 Do I myself feel acrimony toward "big and tall men" just because I am so "small-boned" ?   Am I like poor old Dizzy Duck that John Trudell sings about?  Do I have some god-dang inferiority/superiority complex?   Most likely.  I really hate witnessing ugly feelings in myself.   While drinking I may experience intense flashes of anger, and then, the next morning I experience dread and anxiety over intense confusions in my heart.

Thank you for your words. I hope you and your mother are doing allright.

I know you have thought and written in the board many times about how cruel and miserable our world is. Many unattractive young women will not feel any joy here. As time passes they will become bitter and resentful. They will wish they had never been born.

When I write about how cruel we, humans, are, I do not separate myself from this cruelty. I am part of this madness. We are driven to inflict pain and suffering on our fellow human beings.

I have also seen young women and men at the same time with severe physical disabilities. These people have and will have a tougher time than most people.

And who knows as time passes if I will have to use a wheelchair? Here sometimes bus drivers do not allow disabled people to get into the buses.

This is the gift of life that was given to us.

Walk carefully.
