Isolation Jar

A lot of people have punished me with one of the most severe and effective punishments possible.  Isolation.  They dropped out of my life because I disagreed with them or I was too low status.

I was thinking of the swear jar where people drop money in it when they swear and donate it somewhere.  I was thinking it in context of trying to curtail my taking God’s name in vain.  I’m still serious about that because that is prohibited by Jews as well as Christians.  I was thinking what would work for me is an isolation jar.  I would put coins in it whenever in indiscretion left my lips but instead of donating the money I’d count the money out and for each ten coins someone would cancel a time where they were going to hang out with me.
