    How About A Little Gratitude

    I wonder sometimes if most people are even capable of taking another person's feelings into consideration?  It does not seem like an impossibility to say THANK YOU...once in a while.  It is only two syllables.  You can say it in less than two seconds....and I have...

    It's sad, they don't care about others

    What's the Big Deal?

    I'm not really sure why it's so difficult for people to show even the slightest bit of courtesy. I mean, the way I look at it, it's like urinating on your floor, barfing on your couch, taking a dump in your sheets, and leaving it all there. These are not signs of mental wellness...

    Why Do People Give Broken Junk To Charities?

    I like to shop in op shops, charity stalls, jumble sales etc.  I think that recycling stuff we no longer need or use is a good idea.  One person's trash is another persons's treasure etc.  But many times I have purchased something in good faith only to find it is broken beyond...

    Nobody care about your achievements except

    yourself. Friends are not reliable even if close friends. If you become rich ,a lot of people would be your friend. In contrast, people do not care about you. Money above all relationship.

    We Are Strive And Seek Comfort
