  3. No matter how many times something is said and no matter how many are saying it, I need to decide for myself if its TRUTH to me.

    That is a good philosophy. People called me "fatty" when I was a kid but I wasn't fat. However I believed them and got fat instead of looking at the truth.

  5. Pretty much all of them. I can't seem to learn anything in an easy way. And I am still batting myself in the head over listening to my own truth and ignoring someone else's "shoulds."

    1. Lynn, somehow I believe you have come across someone you thought you knew from their outer appearance and found out you were wrong.

  9. Many of my life's lessons were learned the hard way. I think I have become much more empathetic as I have aged, finding when I judged others I was usually wrong or over simplified things.

  13. That life is a cabaret. It's not really; it's not even close.

    1. Cube, I have never been to a cabaret, have you?

  14. So many things. Too many things. I am a slow learner, and seem to need to 'do it self'.
    A biggie? Some day this will seem insignficant. And there are 'traumas' from my yoof which definitely fall into that category. (And some which don't).

  16. No, I haven't been to a real cabaret either, but I was using it as a euphemism for a good time. I've learned that life can be full of hard times... maybe that's how we can tell the difference.

  17. Cube, I knew that:-)

  20. This made me think a long time!

    Lying is too easy to get caught in- especially by your mother!

    Plus, smoking is a foolish habit.
