OK, I'll help - on one condition...


« on: January 02, 2018, 11:21:37 AM »

Gonna be honest here, struggling to make this BB related but I know in this place I will get cold blooded answers, and that is what I am looking for.....

I'm a tough skinned-MF.  As an older GetBigger I have made my mistakes and chosen my paths, and am well beyond personal insults hurting.  But I have an absolutely honest question for you guys

OK, I'm sure the majority of GetBiggers work harder physically than I do, but my job (can't say what sorry) requires that I face down the absolute worst of human nature on a daily basis.  My question is two-fold:

1.  Is there a limit to how much evil one person can take/look at/deal with?

2.  If yes to the above, then is it cowardly as an adult to activate internet filters that remove certain stories from your on-line 'life'?

Clearly, I am thinking I need some form of protection from the unfiltered 'truth' that is the InterWebz.  Genuine answers appreciated because it can't go on like this.  Tongue

Wouldn't parental control prevent you from doing your job? Huh

You're misinterpreting the question.

He likely means that in his his professional life, he hears about horrific things. Thus, he wants to guard himself against other horrific things on the internet (avoid reading them). Hence, the filters.

My neighbor is (was) a cop who had to deal w/ crimes against children. He left the force for PTSD reasons.
(Couldn't deal with seeing certain shit day in and day out).

"is it cowardly as an adult to activate internet filters that remove certain stories from your on-line 'life'?"

No it isnt, de-stressing at home is a good thing, no need to see evil 24x7.

Im imagining were in the same arena of work. So I know of that which you speak.

If I could, Id tell you the location from which Im writing this and with whom Im spending the day.

I know evil. I have personal, face-to-face interaction with evil on a daily basis.

Brother, you do whats required to rest your soul and provide you peace and tranquility.

Be good to yourself.

Thank you, yes - exactly - I think I need to screen out parts of the world to 'protect' myself....

There is a lot of evil that goes on in the world.  There is also a lot of good.  If you watch the TV news and browse the seamy underside of the internet, you'll undoubtedly see more of the evil side at play.  Since cutting the cable several years ago, I haven't watched the news and don't miss it in the least.  There is nothing wrong with focusing on the good and positive in the world for the sake of your own mental and emotional well-being.

I know you say that you "can't say" what you do for a living but c'mon brother. At least point us in the general direction such as the industry you work in.

So you work in Law Enforcement and want to filter away stuff that the flotsam say on the internet? (as well as news from around the world)

Simple, don't use use Google or search.

Just add certain bookmarks that you go to regularly, like Getbig, that one favorite sportspage you like, a website about knitting etc

Only go to those websites and not any others.

Let's keep it vague - how about 'protecting those that can't protect themselves'?

Sorry if it's vague, but you can apply that to puppies, grandparents and stoopid people if you like!   Grin

You need to get into the mindset that helping one out of a million DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

It's an uphill battle...1 step forward 2 steps back. But that one step forward impacts somebody.

I personally believe that one person that recycles, votes, adopts, etc....does make a difference. Even if 100 others don't. It's a mindset you have to put yourself into. Is it hard to do? Yup. But it can be done.

Anything that would make your life better I would do it.
I had a problem with Online gambling when it was legal
so I bought something that blocked all the gambling sites
and had a friend set up the code.
     You may be a hardened individual because of the situations
you've been through but that may not be your natural disposition.
Seeing evil & negativity daily/weekly will take a huge toll
on you mentally. Some jobs are suited better for sociopaths
that aren't violent (except when it calls for it) but have enough pride to do their job well.
Being around scum, negative, evil people all the time would make me
personally just not want to live because of my disposition.
If this affects you this much to write on a board maybe there is a department
in your field of work where you see less of the evil.
TV Filter: Anything that makes your life better but doesn't hurt other people
is a good thing.

Great post, but can't see Taffin as a cop.  Can't really see Fortress as one.

They're probably PO's, or maybe CO's or even Private Investigators.  I could see those in either of them, way before Cop.  

But maybe I'm wrong, judging as an American while they're not American.

I'd have to say it depends on whether you have a fighting chance to operate against the evil you face, or if you're forced to be a bystander (for any number of reasons, perhaps, that only you could know).

If reality says you can only stand by, then you must remove yourself from it as best you can, for as many hours per day as you can.  You owe it to those you help, to stay in stable condition.

But if the opposite is true, then you owe it to everyone to learn as much as you can about the threat, even if it means sacrificing some mental health, to serve your time fighting for what's right.  That's why you've been made aware of it.

You're the one who must live with your choice, either way.  Pray on it and the answer will become clear.
