Good going troutski. You can always count on someone who must throw their political views out there no matter what the conversation is about.
Oh my. You seem to be easily upset ?? I wonder how old you are and if you've had to suffer and endure this all your life ?? It must take plenty of effort to address every distinctive character trait in those around you and also find understanding in the original points being made ?? That seems like a huge amount of energy to allow to be sucked out of you on a daily basis throughout a lifetime of interaction w/ diverse and beautifully wonderful brothers & sisters, who's differences make life interesting !!
You geaux boy !! Your seemingly exhaustive but enduring strength inspires me to seek another path. Thank you !!
My grandmother told me once, "if you can't say something nice about someone else, ... , don't say anything at all" !!
I myself find these words of advice to relieve me of stress, save my energy, stay on topic and generally leave others thinking I am concerned, compassionate and interested in them. (i.e. happy to be around)
Thanks again for painting a personal picture that really shows the proof that grandma was the rock of profound & good advice.
