A hard, unfair position.
The person you need to answer to is that face in the mirror.
Every day. How did you treat your husband and your children
this day? (every day) How did you treat those you can in contact
That's how I look at life.
That I try to make an honest effort to be happy, to smile, and to
bring a smile to those around me. Because I know I'm going to leave
this world someday, and I want people to have pleasant memories
when they think of me.
I don't say unkind things to my wife, daughter. They mean way too much
to me. Yes, I've spoiled them both. My wife is bad spoiled.
But I don't go around saying things to hurt other people either. They might
someday remember me. If I find the need to talk about someone...let me
find kind things to say. Even if I need to address a problem, I'll do all I can
to do it nice.
I don't like being unhappy.
So...I don't let people make me feel unhappy. If that means we can't be friends,
that's what that means.
My grandparents were an old couple that lived next door once when I was young.
They were super nice people. Better that my real grandparents. I had one good
grandpa, bue he died when I was a little boy. The other three were just not good
at the grandparent thing. So life found me a couple that were. And they became my
I grew up knowing some not so nice people. Some in my own family. So I've made
that a point in my adult life, my daughters life--if you are not a nice person, you will
not be in my circle.
I'll always love my family. But you can love somebody, and not like them very much.
In the end, live in such a way as to love and honor your family, your friends. And when
the day comes that you leave this world, let there be a hole of such magnitude that it
can never be filled.
Don't worry about how they treat you...it's how you treat them that matters.
Thank you. Yes, I believe and have been told that I am a kind person. I don't like to say mean or bad things to people either. The only people that I know that don't like me are people that know my sister or my mom, and that is b/c they talk bad about me to them. Even though my parents were and aren't very nice people, I treat them with respect and am always kind to them. I am never mean to them.
I treat my husband and son very well. My husband and I never say hurtful words to each other. If we are in a disagreement, we would rather take some time to ourselves to cool down rather than say something to each other that we would regret. We RARELY disagree, though. He is my best friend.
I agree, I don't like being unhappy. I don't like the way that they make me feel when stuff like this happens, and my husband said this evening that he thinks they do stuff like this specifically to make me feel bad. We've done our best to limit the amount of contact that our son has with my mom. He used to spend A LOT of time with her when he was really young, but as he has gotten older her behavior has become worse. Now he is 12 and he rarely spends time with her alone. When she picked him up from school on the day we moved, that was the first time in a very long time that he was alone with her. She is not a nice person, and I don't want him to be around people like that. He is old enough to realize what type of person she is, also, and he came to that by his own conclusion. When he grows up (if she is still alive, which I doubt) it will be his choice whether or not he wants to be in her life.
