Before judging someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, they're a mile away and you have their shoes!
Victory over the self, that's the true martial way. Boy do I have a loooooonng way to go...
Keep your trap shut woman. Why do I leap to agree with people who are having a go? It wasn't really a major slating it was just felt horrible. It's not like I have no life of my own why do I have to agree just to feel included or liked? it makes me so angry at myself How do I change part of my basic make-up. I have to change it because it is a truely repellant character trait. two faced-ness is not attractive in ANY form. I just don't understand where this underlying desperateness comes from...
It's doing things like this that just increases my general feeling of crapness about me. and adds to my TOTAL lack of surprise about my first class ability to keep people at arms length; it's for their own good.
Take your time before giving an opinion. Dammit. I'm a grown woman, I should know better by now...
