Just Not Gettin' It

Some people can skip along through life and never worry about things they say or do. Others seem to go overboard and worry about everything they say or do. How in the world do you find the happy medium?

Do some people live their whole lives and just never *get it* ?? Get what?..Yeah I'm asking myself that.... What is it I don't get?..Well...

I don't get how someone can say something not particularly nice and think its ok because they say.."I don't mean to hurt your feelings but..."..well hell...if you don't want to hurt them...keep you comments to yourself...

I don't get how someone who has more money than you can never seem to buy their own lunch. Possibly this is why they have more money?? Because they never have to spend any of it?? They always have someone else pay??

I don't get when something fails... you continue to prop it up and push it forward... after repeated failures...isn't there a time to just throw your hands in the air and quit??

I don't get why you can't have anything and everyone that your heart desires... Its not fair that something is put in front of you that makes you completely happy....but its just far enough out of your reach that all you can do is dream of what it would be like to have it... and the dreams consume you... this is the cruelest of all things I don't get..

Am shutting up now...have some prancing and twirling to do!

Yes I know what you mean there! I've a freind that is worth millions, he never picks up the tab. Last year I picked up the B day cake for his girlfriend at the bakery, I'm still waiting to get paid back for it.

Still if you let things like this get you down, you'll be the one missing out on the better things in life.

OH.. They aren't getting me down...Well...they aren't now...Just wanted to ponder things a bit I suppose.... I'm trying really hard to not let *anything* get me down... and if I can't do that on my own...Well... thats why they invented PROZAC!

You got the good stuff!!!!!
Joking aside there Reisaree, if we had all our hearts desired there wouldn't have anything left to dream about. Those who never pick up the tab some are just assholes, and some are just so use to not worrying about money they forget sometimes others do. All the rest oh well just share the damn prozac then we all can be happy.

Now do you see why I hang out with animals more... ??

I was a counselor for 18 years - I'm with ya on the "I just dont get why..." theme.

Things people do will drive you crazy - it's just our (the sane folks) job to suck it up and always move forward with a smile

We all don't like to admit failure. So we try to resurect the dying or the dead, there was only one person that I know of that could do that. I find myself trying that very thing, to keep something going when it is dying or dead, but I have learned to let go and admit failure without remorse. Then I try something else using all the suggestions I have gotten, I try to utilize and incorporate everything that I see useful.

Your Prancing and Twirling is good therapy, for you and me! I like watching.

Some people just like to get as much mileage out of things as they can. But I believe at some point you have to be realistic and cut your losses. The people with plenty of money that don't pay for lunch are a little more savy at doing that at the right moment in time I think.

Yes, it is cruel how somethings that we think make us the happiest are just beyond our reach. But more cruel than that is when we happen to acquire one of these things it ceases to make us as happy as we thought it would.

Prozac? I am not so sure about. But beer definitely helps improve my outlook on life.

Some beer coupled with the prancing and twirling might just keep me happy. (for a little while)

Okay that was a little deep but true. If you had all your heart desired then what? what would you do? where would you go? what would you dream about? Can ones heart completely be full? There would be no more looking, or them special glances you get, no more curiosity, no more what if, no more wanting of anything kidda sums it up. So I see you there with a soft, gentle smile, gazing out to all of us with an open heart, and that my lady gives me hope, happiness, and the curiosity to move foward in life and want more. Just felt the need. Will

reisaree, so true that people justify the things they say and do without regard to the other persons feelings. For instance, what would you say about a woman whose husband calls her from the hospital where his father is dying and she is pissed because he didn't call earlier! He didn't because she said she was coming up but never did. I don't know, maybe i'm fucking nuts!

by the way, do you know the benefit a woman gets from her man being on Prozac? you probably do, I think it is pretty well documented.

OK Reis,
Here's the deal. It's my deal and may certainly be complete buffoonery, but it's still my deal. The way I see it is that most people do their thing to please them. If "their thing" clogs up your tricycle, it's because you're just on the wrong sidewalk. Hmmm. Not exactly how I wanted to say it. If I am hurt or offended or screwed by someone elses actions, it's usually because that person feels "a bit negative" about themselves and doesn't even consider that I might be in the picture. The end game is "People treat others EXACTLY the way they feel about themselves". If I tell you that your hair looks shitty it's because I feel shitty about myself. By the way Reis, you are a very beautiful and extremely caring person. Keep up the good work and remember happiness is not a destination, but only a journey.
