Anonymous asked:

Would you say religious families are more successful or more stable? I come from a non-religious family. It seems that there are less conflict when there are a set of agreed rules that everyone agrees on. What do you think?

the-pomp:

Hell no. There may be some correlation that exists but that does not imply causation.

I come from a religious family. Yes, I come from a very loving home and a loving family. But I know many friends who are ‘religious’ yet their families and households are far from stable and/or ‘successful’. What I mean to say is that there is a set of rules everyone agrees to…but when has anyone ever really followed the rules — whether they be of religious institution or an athletic game or whatever. 

There are a myriad of other factors that play into how stable and how successful one’s family is. Religion is just one part…that may not even play the largest role. I feel a large part of it is the characteristics of each individual member — personality, habitual traits, demeanor, whatever. I’ve seen happy religious and happy atheist homes. At the same time, I’ve seen some pretty messy ones of each.

Oh…and money also plays a huge role. However you feel about it, you need money to do anything. If a family doesn’t have a stable income. They’ll come across problems…and without money, it’s hard to fix those problems. Then…the hole gets dug deeper. 

Obviously…I’m 22 and have yet to create a family of my own. This is my perspective on your question based on my life experience and what I’ve seen around me.

"Step Out"- José González

It takes great skill to craft a song that inspires. The kind of song that fills the dark corners of doubt with possibility and purpose. Anything is possible and everything is attainable.

Think hard about those wild dreams and reckless adventures. Press play and chase after it, friends.

Cheers.

"April was too lonely a month to spend alone. In April, everyone around me looked happy. People would throw their coats off and enjoy each other’s company in the sunshine—talking, playing catch, holding hands. But I was always by myself."
