Just Me


Someone commented to me that I sounded bitter or whiney when they read my blogs and my profile. I guess, depending on how you take things, I could sound that way. But bitter and whiney are two things I most definitely am not. I've seen a lot of things in my short life; but rather than let them make me bitter, I chose to use them a lessons to be learned from.

If I don't like the way things are going, I change them if it's within my power. For those things that aren't within my power to change, I'll react to it but not dwell on it. I prefer to see the good in any given situation.....even if it seems to be a really bad one at the time. And you know what? If you look back on your life at those bad situations, you WILL see that there was some good that came out of it. Everything happens for a reason...whether it's for you to learn or for you to teach.

I believe in treating others as I wish to be treated. If I come across rude or mean people, rather than fight with them, I prefer to avoid them. Life's too short to be mean and hateful. I think it's more fun to enjoy it and go through life smiling. I can be serious when the need arises; otherwise, I like to have fun.

I am not materialistic in that I don't let money and "stuff" rule me. It doesn't bother me that the Joneses may have better than I. I don't care to try to keep up with everyone who may have more than I. Besides, I've been around people who have everything a person could want for and seen them STILL not be happy.

Happiness must come from within. Lots of things come from within for that matter. You can't make someone else happy unless you're already happy. Can't love someone unless you love yourself. Can't expect to take when you aren't able to give. Can't give when you feel you aren't worth anything.

So that's a glimpse inside just a part of me. I'm not bitter nor am I whiney. I have a heck of a sense of humor ranging from goofy to dry to morbid to whatever. So to the one who thought I was whiney and bitter, I tip my hat to you. Maybe it is YOU who are whiney and bitter and can't take a joke!

The best revenge is to live well and enjoy life. I try to outlast my enemies so I only have friends left!

I believe you are both human and are entittled to make mistakes on each others perception of character. However, maybe you should both take a step back and analyze your down falls. Bitter and whiney are awful atributes and calling each other such is just going to make two fellow human being resent the words shared by each other and to each other. Because we are both human we are also entittled and capable of mending our mistakes with each other. Kindness, it's as good as sex

I wasn't necessarily "calling anyone anything". I'm merely saying, "Before you point fingers or call names, maybe one should look in the mirror at oneself." I am very well aware of my own downfalls and not afraid to admit them either. We all have them so rather than point out one's downfalls, why not point out the good things you see in them? Of course, I have made the mistake of overlooking really BIG downfalls and chose to only see the good side--I don't advise that. hahaha
