    I have recently been trying to be note inclusive

    and stop assuming things like gender, orientation, and things like that. Whenever I can online, I try to use gender neutral pronouns or ask what pronouns people prefer. I really wish I could do that in real life but most people where I live are very conservative aren't very...

    If you're gonna reply to someone who's hurting

    in their post maybe you shouldn't laugh at them call them a girl then tell them their worries are trivial and they should concentrate on other things. Obviously if you're venting you just need to get it out. I've seen guys vent about stupid crap that hurts their feelings. I...

    Are You Serious?!

    When I was working at an Animal Hospital, there was a young woman who really didn't like me...at all. She would start rumors, talk trash, etc. But since I was part-time it didn't really get to me until one day. There were a bunch of girls upfront and we were all chit-chatting and...

    Shut Up!

    Most of the time, people that assume really need to keep their big mouths shut. I cannot stand people that make assumptions on things they hardly know about or about people they don't know at all. Get the facts first before you speak out of your ***.

    So I am in a wheelchair

    especially when I do.

    it is human nature to respond to situations. or people based on past experiences. But at times these actions are like assumptions. It is good to learn from the past, but look at the situation fully before acting or speaking. I try and sometimes fail to remember that not every...

    The True Meaning of The Word "Assume"

    Assuming is just THINKING you know. Knowing is KNOWING you know. That aside, you have heard the best definition of the word "assume", right? I was always told tht people who assume, only "make an *SS (out of) U (and) ME! The only issue I have with this...

    This is what I have learned about assumptions.

    Anyone with any integrity whatsoever realizes that to be successful in life, you have to carefully think about every step you take in life. "Who am I, what do I want out of life?" Everyone wants to be on that straight and narrow road, right? Going straight toward whatever...
