Re: Are you really any better?

Over the past 7 years or so, one of my main goals was to completely stop judging others. I still have to bite my tongue and have not mastered it (yet) but I really do hope to eventually. In the meantime, all I have to say is that I believe we are all equal and we all have our own crosses to bear and personal demons to deal with. What some may consider frivolous or insignificant, others may have a really hard time dealing with and visa versa. I'm grateful I have my issues to cope with and not the hell that others may have to go through.

Re: Are you really any better?

I dont think I'm better than anyone else, we all just have different ways of dealing with things. And this stems from how we are influenced by friends and family. Some people can stop smoking at the drop of a hat. I've experimented with worse and never ever became addicted, but for the life of me i dont have the balls to quit smoking. A good childhood friend of mine committed suicide a month ago. We went through the same troubles as children and teenagers... Besides 2 beautiful children she couldnt find a reason to go on... Her inner strength was gone. There was nothing to fight for... When I had my daughter I had everything to fight for.... It's a mindset and its very difficult to change once a person has a certain mindset. But its not impossible. So no I dont think I'm better than anyone, but perhaps just a bit emotionally stronger

Re: Are you really any better?

I am intrigued as to why you are asking the question DB.

I thought your post was aimed at the respondents, rather than at DB.

Agree. Its an odd one. Feels like the response from DB was written before the question was posed......so i guess we just need to wait for the next installment

Re: Are you really any better?

Given what a lot of people are posting on places like Facebook the question actually makes a lot of sense.

Yes, we know that but are just wondering why you posed the question.

Because, to quote a PM I received last night, Dougal's Breakfast is "a cockroach masquerading as a human being" and a "c**t".

I posed the question because a famous celebrity just died and lots of people are commenting on it. If you don't want to answer the question, you don't have to. If you do, then please feel free.

Quite frankly, I don't give a **** either way.

Sometimes a question is just a banana.

I was wondering what the connection was between your post and the question.

I think after this weekend's tragedies, the importance of being mentally healthy can no longer be denied.

Re: Are you really any better?

Ahh, I see now ... it is just a round-about, convoluted way for you to get back publicly at the sender of the PM, DB (and I think I know who it was)
