Tough love
    #2174360 - 12/13/03 10:16 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Do you ever hear someone whining about very petty, infetessimal problems, and have the urge to shake them as hard as you can and scream in their face "GET OVER IT?'

Or how about when someone is rationalizing..."It's not that I'm not smart enough...it's not that I'm fat..." Ever just wanna set them straight.

I think a lot of people (myself included) could use some tough love. You know that scene in fight club where they take that clerk and hold a gun to his head and tell him he better start living the life he wants? I wish someone would do that to me once a month.

"Just because someone has it worse than me doesn't mean I can't complain."

It means you shouldn't. Be thankful for what you had.

I know what you mean.

I consider most things petty. People bitching about people gets me the most. I find myself tuning out more often than not lately.

Even most music gets to me nowadays. I wish everyone would quit whining about shit.

I hate the "oh woe is me" mentality!

This drama we call "life" is not life at all. It's anti-life in my opinion.

Unless it threatens your survival in some way, it is meaningless. And even then.........

I may not always tell the truth, but atleast I'm honest

I see what everyone is saying. It is so hard to form an opinion when you see both sides so clearly!

By your line of logic, only the person who has it worse than everyone on the planet could ever complain because he's the only guy who doesn't have it better than someone else.

Your heart is in the right place about this. I'm just saying that everyone should be able to complain.

I don't like your tone, mister.  :mad:

I'd suggest starting out with G# and then sliding down to E. :lol:

I think complaining can be justifiable as long as it causes you to admit to yourself that you are at fault for everything you are complaining about. If you can complain about something, and accept that you are responsible for improving whatever situation you are complaining about, and actually start DOING something about it, sure, go ahead and complain. But of course, the people who you are complaining around always have the right to ignore you or tell you to get over it!

Anyways, it's too bad that most of the time somebody complains, the reason they do it is just a ploy to suck the sympathetic energy out of people. "Poor me, I'm having such a hard time, comfort me, give me sympathy!"

If somebody complains and needs some advice, I have a simple rule. I give it to them once, and only once, and if they expect me to repeat it, I tell them to go fuck themselves, except in a much more polite way :smile:

Tough love is harder to dish out then it is to take. I didn't understand that and would think you were Crazy untill up to resently if you had said that to me I would have thought you were a nut.

How?

I just had a buddie that ran in to some ruff times about the first part of 2003. He left his wife for another girl because they were having problems. He got this other girl knocked up so to speak. She being only 17 and him being 20 but having a ruff past, could not find jobs.And then ran in to a problem that they were asked to leave their old place by her ant. A bitch who is addicted to drugs and the worst mother. Being that they had no place to live, he talked to my landlord to live in the little house that is in the back . Mom helped them pay their gas and energy while I helped with every thing ealse and they got food stamps. Well a few months later she got a job at a fast food place. They didn't spend that money on anything for the kid, to pay bills, to help us out. So a few after that I had to say enuff was enuff. He got a hold of his dad and got a job trucking and she went to Rapid. I am not sure if that says anything other then me blabbering on. But thats what it means it me. When you have to stop helping some people you love because it is effecting you and they are not helping them selfs. And never forgiving your self for doing so. If it turns it is a hurtful thing to do. But you do what you can right?

Sorry for the spelling but I could not find the spellcheck.

It means you shouldn't. But Humans' are never happy. And that is just something they do. I have noticed the crazy thing that people with not all that much. Sometimes not even a good roof over their head or food for every night of the week complain less then some one who has a nice house, car, food for every min of the day. I guess it's because less means more.

Sorry about the spelling

I think it is alright as long as you can say"I have to do this to get it fixed" kind of like,,,"I have the cops at my door because I didn't pay child support maybe i should have done so." instead of"That fucking bitch called on me"
