    How Does That Benefit Me?

    Some Times You Have To Try

    I am not an optimist...far from it.  Sometimes I am as crabby as can be and embrace the "whoa is me" attitude.  I am not proud of it.  But, I am aware that I am allowing myself to drown in my own sorrow and then I pick back up and proceed.  I don't let negativity dictate my...

    I'm tired of your negativity.

    From now on i will focus on the positive, and leave you to your negativity. Life is too short to always be frowning, and getting angry all the time. You may be older and my mother, but that doesn't mean you're wiser. No disrespect.
