I Hate This, I Hate That...

I hate haters (ahhh, the irony) and yes, I'm going to rant about that and yes, it's because of another whiner who can't stand Switzerland.

If you dislike anything in your life, you change it right? Try to make things happen. It is all about choice, but it seems for many the fact that there arse is in this country means this is the end... they are super-glued to Switzerland.

I do understand that there are some extremely valid reasons that you can't move, but those are few considering if you came here from elsewhere you can continue your journey.

For instance:

Job/Career- sure the global economy is not at it's best, but if you found something here you can find something elsewhere.

Property- what you bought was probably on the market for a nano-second and will, at the greatest delay sell in 2 minutes.

Spouse- if they really love you and want your happiness... .

Children- my daughter has been moved, I was moved as a child. Children get over it. And guess what? If the parents are happy, I think the child will be a lot happier too.

Other Family- they want you happy and with communication the way it is you don't have to live next door.

Health- if this is the only place you can live, then that is a tough one.

Okay, back to today's Domestic Goddess duties, which I hate.

Re: I Hate This, I Hate That...

It's good to hate. Find something you can really, truely despise with the very fabric of your being, channel all your abhorrence toward that one thing, and then, after a while, bottle it all up inside and forget about it forever. Repeat.

Guaranteed bliss*

Likewise beotch.

Funny, both of us are single Mums and are doing a darn good job of it despite the hardships we face. If there should be haters in CH, it really is us- there is no help. But no, we get on with because we look to ourselves for solutions

My experience of single mums is that they don't have any spare time, hence no time to hate... too busy... gotta rush...

Re: I Hate This, I Hate That...

I am sure some people feel better for a while after a rant and getting things off their chest.

I agree that this is not particularly constructive, especially on a discussion forum.

I think it would be better for people to start threads such as:

I would like some advice with ....... because I am finding it difficult

Where can I get help with ........?

How did you cope with .........?

There are many helpful and supportive people on EF and most seem to respond positively to threads like this (except some of the really trivial ones )

Winter is almost over!!!! I think the number of "I hate..." posts should start to drop off significantly once the weather improves!
