Bondage of self . The hardest person to live with is yourself. A classmate of mine who's a renowned psychologist in LA once said, ' 10 % of the people in this world are ********' he went on to say 'you're lucky to live in North Dakota, you can drive for miles before you run into one. Out here in LA they're on every corner'

As for troublesome or mean people on this forum, I just block them from appearing on my screen ever again. It's called Ignore, and they are just gone. I never read them again, unless somebody quotes them.

My only complaint is you can't do that in real life.

How many members do you have blocked. I have 14.

You have more blocks than you have posts...............I haven't started blocking yet. Not sure when I will, but I assume I will some day.

That's correct. The two aren't related.

I'm a skeptic as usual: If WE worry excessively about self absorbed people, which I believe includes everyone, then WE are worrying about how WE feel. WE would be worrying about OUR feelings. We would be self absorbed concerning OUR feelings.

Thanks for that link. I've seen that clip before, but it always brings tears to my eyes. As a Christian, the Bible teaches to love each other and care for each other. Kindness turns away wrath. The bottom line is that we all have crosses to bear. You never know what another person has on his/her plate, their struggles, pains, fears. Folks get caught up in the moment of fear, desperation, anxiety and loss. They forget the other people around them. When you see that, just take a breath, relax and smile. Kindness is a wonderful thing.

Without reading all of the responses, some people realize they are on the downside of life and even in a place as beautiful as TV, they let age determine their outlook toward life. Villagers, age is just a number; you can make yourself feel old or you can make yourself feel young, it's your choice. I choose to feel young.

I don't look at my glass as half full or half empty. I am just happy I have a glass and that there is something in it.

After all we have been through to this point in time, I agree it's a choice.

I agree. Like you, I feel we control our moods and our attitude to life.
I often hear people say "he makes me so mad" or "she causes me so much grief" or "I can't help it, he just makes me lose my temper".
Sometimes we temporarily forget that we choose our behavior and reactions.
Sometimes I need to have a little talk to myself to get back on the right track.

The hardest person there is to live with is yourself.
