So far I have responses in this thread from three sane centered people, all basically agreeing with the premise.

I didn't show my cards when I posted this, but basically I agree.

There is some mystery to life. At times - doors tend to open for you, things fall into line, you are somehow supported with what you're trying to do. At other times, everything is against you, nothing goes well, and everyone sneers at your efforts.

I'm on the "things going shitty and everyone on my case/up my ass" side of this proposition much of the time, it seems.

In my own case, "manifesting" consists of continuing to live in a region that is pure shit in terms of human capital.

"Hillbilly Elegy" by JD Vance was basically written about the people of my region. (if you don't know what I am talking about, get some cultural perspective and look it the fuck up. Its' an important book.)

(In fact he comes from 8 mi or so from me at present.) Bitter, argumentative, disrespectful, proud of ignorance... that's the people here. I have run-ins all of the time here.

Anyway, I'm manifesting failure and dissatisfaction by continuing to live here.

But for personal reasons I really can't move now. Goddamned failing old people I am responsible for continue to live and be feeble and be needy and need my presence.

The point is, I'm making a choice that predetermines other things.
