Among Other Things…LOL

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last. Winston Churchill

Ok my friends. Update. The guy that I was supposed to meet with blew me off! What a freakin’ flake. He didn’t even bother to text or call. What a JERK! Anyway….That’s all the energy I am going to expend on a deadbeat. On to better things my friends. I have decided to start a video blog! LOL, I know, I must be crazy right. I haven’t done the first video yet, (I need a shower first shhhh). But, I will try to integrate it with my WP blog. I don’t know if I can or not. We shall see. The intro is here at jazblog. I will let you know when I do the first video. Anyway, I wanted to thank everyone that sent the wonderful wishes to me for the new venture, that’s not going to happen LOL! With that I leave you with the Buggles just for fun…LOL

How You Treat Others

Standard
How You Treat Others

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. Winston Churchill 

How you treat others and speak to them is a direct reflection of yourself. If you look down on others and treat them with disdain what is this saying about you as a person? On the other side of the coin, if you treat each and every person with courtesy and respect what does that say? Recently I have had the experience of running into both ends of the spectrum. I have had one person that was so rude and short with me that I will never speak with that person ever again. This person treated me as if I was no better than a little bug under their shoe. On the other hand I have met some very sweet people that have been warm and inviting and in the end formed some new friendships. In the middle of the spectrum I have a friend who is incredibly self-involved and only seems to be focusing on their own current negative situation. They are so busy having a pity party that they are completely oblivious to the people around them and the difficulties of their friend’s situations. If you are hurting, this person is hurting 10 x’s worse. You know this person. Rather than focusing their energy on fixing the situation they blow their horn vociferously to anyone who will listen about their terrible situation and how no one is helping them. Part of the problem with this, beyond the obvious, is when a person does this their friends will draw away from them like pulling back from a hot stove. Truly, it is ok to tell people your situation, but always try to have a positive outlook and a plan on how you can fix it. No one is going to fix it for you. If you sit and cry to people all day, everyday, about your situation you are 1. wasting energy that could serve a better purpose and 2. Pushing people away from you as surely as if you were a hot, flaming coal of self-pity. No matter how bad your situation is it serves you better as a person to always keep in mind that your situation could be worse and you are not the only one hurting in this world. We all need to vent and let our friends and family know what’s going on with us, but it’s ultimately important to take the high road and if one avenue doesn’t work, explore other avenues. Eventually you will find the road that works, and never give up. No matter what, keep in mind that the things you spew out of your mouth can end up coming back to bite you and push people away. With that I leave you with the Beatles, have a peaceful day :)
