Old Saying From Grandmother: "Never rely on someone else for your own happiness."
I gotta admit, even though I have Cable TV and saw his name regularly pop up (I am not into watching any cooking shows), I really did not know who Anthony Bourdain was, that is, until after his much publicised death by suicide. Seemed to me that he had the world at his feet. But died of a broken heart. Used and betrayed.
Foreigners (males) committing suicide, for similar reasons as Anthony Bourdain, occurs here quite regularly . The most common method, peculiar to the LOS, is leaping from tall buildings.
I have seen the acronym MGTOW many times in articles on the internet and never knew what the hell it meant. Not the foggiest. So I went to 'google' and looked it up. Wow! Interesting. When you think about all the crap going on in society today. Not a lot of it great.
MGTOW (”Men Going Their Own Way”) is a way of life which refuses to defer to women in defining the worth of men. Instead, it focuses on positive male aspects, inviting men to go their own way in life.
