Positive Sayings -- Grrrr

Ok - I know that they are for the best.

But when you are really down, and blue, and some chipper little girl bops in and tells you all these positive sayings ... when you know they have never had a true love yet, never lost anything yet, never lived yet.

I just want to slap the happy right off her face ..ok I said it.

Yeah - I am pretty evil.

oh mizz b. you are only human. you have a right to how you feel.

No NGH - you are right, and everyone has an opinion.<br />

It's not that younger people are not put into similar situations, I believe it is older adults have more experience in dealing with these situations.

I always get a chuckle when I read a very, very young EP'er (18-19ish) offering relationship advice to someone in their 30-40's.<br />
<br />
Age is just a number, true, but realistically their are some experiences that must be lived through to be properly understood and here is no getting around it.<br />
<br />
It reminds me of a 13 year old Amish farm girl leading a group therapy session for aging Vietnam Vets with PTSD. True, ago is just a number but it seem unlikely this person is going to offering advice that is particularly useful in that situation.<br />

I'm a horrible person! I shouldn't say such things :-(

Thanks - had 2 get that off my chest
