    I like being punctual

    and don't like staying out late.But my husband and his family don't bother about sticking to a routine.Yesterday ,my husband went out with his mom to meet his relatives and came home late as usual.I think it is safer to come home early.

    I'm Guilty of It!!!

    I am really guilty of doing this and I don't often stop to wonder why. This is just one example, my friends mother didn't want her as a child and either did her dad, so her dads mother and father took her in. They were old fashioned people and had no idea of what life was like...

    Kids Acting Badly

    Kids, now what comes to mind when you think of kids, not goats. Children running around the supermarket unattended . Their parents find it's easier to ignore them, instead of controlling them. We can't blame the children, because we all Need boundaries . Blame the parents...

    You make a mistake, apologise.

    You hurt someone who cares for you deliberaty, apologise. Why is it so hard for people to say sorry and actually mean nowadays ? Do they have that much pride and ignorance in them so as not to see the nature of their selfishness ?

    Please explain how "emotional issues" have

    become the "get out of jail free" card to excuse bad behavior in adults. I know that there are people who truly have diagnoses that make self control a challenge, but when did society get painted with this wide brush of an excuse?

    Yeh Peeps

    I remove from my circle those who misrepresent their age.. that is under-age saying they are 18-21 but in chat or message they tell me they are younger than what their profiles say. I also dump and block those who have content in their stories that could be used in a criminal...

    Many People Simply Do Not Care Anymore How They Act.

    People don't care what language they use or the tone it is said in. It seems that we (many of us) have become a society of self-obsessed, arrogant, obnoxious individuals. Rudeness is never justified whether in any area of our lives. I know that thoughts are not easily...

    Waiting For a Change

    I think we excuse bad behavior most the time because we believe it is gonna change. That it is not going to last, it's only temporary. Even if that temporary lasts for years. We always want to see the good in people especially if it's someone very close or family. We cannot...
