Hey Man, I dig your Avatar, but you might want to think about changing it to this?Being asked for money over and over again by my mom. That annoys me to all hell because I don't have a lot of money and I usually have to get loud and authoritative to get my point across to her. WTH should an 18 year-old have to talk some sense into a 50 year-old?! This world is a steaming pile of dog shit and it makes me want to relieve some stress into a punching bag...:angry:
That is an excellent idea, sirdude! That respect my authoritah image is now my profile picture!
You are welcome!That is an excellent idea, sirdude! That respect my authoritah image is now my profile picture!
You know what else really grinds my gears?! Control freaks! The place where I live is called America, the land of the free. WTH are those types of people trying to tell me what to do and when to do it?! I've got rights to freedom and I'll exercise them! And if they don't like it,well, kiss my ass if you don't like it!
I pretty much agree with what GiGi said.Since no one wanted to answer the last set of questions, I'll try this.
What did it take to make you turn cold on someone close to you?
Thank you for sharing GiGi, you made a couple of very good points. I can relate to your point about not being a stepping stone, usually after I meet someone who wasn't ready to be one for me. 20 years ago I was not the nicest of guys, and as I was trying to change or become a more positive member of society, I would have to leave one set of "friends" behind that were not the type of people I wanted to be and find someone who was closer to the type I did want to be like. What makes this a memorable point in time for me was how the" bad people" I was leaving behind thought of me as a "Do Good'er", but the people I wanted to be like thought of me as still the same ole "bad person."It's true, people will show you who they truly are in life.
When someone shows their true nature is a negative nature, don't excuse their behavior or you will be repeatedly shown to the point where you are in great pain and stress.
That person may be on a journey to becoming a better individual but that does not mean you need to be their stepping stone. Their decisions belong to them and they need to reap the rewards to grow, just as your decision to remain in a crappy relationship (friendship, marriage, work environment) is yours to reap.
Being cold isn't always a bad thing. It can also be positive change.
This reminds me of what my brother is always telling me, "give me five bucks"...OH wait, wrong thing, it's "kill them with kindness." Yeah, that's the one. :wink: It gets frustrating at times, but it's a lot cheaper then bail. :laughing: And it's a little more fun to watch someone boil over when they can't get a rise out of you.ESSAY- I'm committed to smiling for my serial killer.
