Ok, EE. ... I get that the LL forum family is not yet ready (and perhaps never will be) to bring this particular skeleton out of the closet.

This is very sad.

Mine would be to just take care of things as soon as possible. Get the difficult/scary things out of the way, unless its beneficial to wait for a little while. Im still having trouble with this. My mum bought me eat that frog back in 2003, as a reminder (I wanted the book), but I still put things off.

Actions and body language cues are a better way of verifying ones honesty regardless of what someone says.

Whatever happen to the "Duck Test". "If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck".

If you stick to that principal your less likely to be fouled by someone being dishonest because the obvious answer of there honesty is right in front of you.

Friendships or other relationships can end, so maybe what you trust people with can differ. I was just thinking about something that happened in the past - one reason that Im more wary at times - but I trust people with whom I disagree vehemently with at times. Not a certain guy in GU, but Faith, for example. Shes no longer here, but we are still in touch. Weve never met in person, but I trust her.

To never try to Forget the wrong done to you untill justice is done and to Never forgive yourself for trying to be too honest with somebody just because they seem to have good intentions for you and being trustworthy of others ill will for you...
They just don't seem to realise it is all going to come back & inevitably bite them in their ass one day for sure!!!
REmember trust is earned!!!

One of my best life lessons ever was: How to deal with unreasonable people? First you must start with your self. Your expectation for an unreasonable person to be reasonable.

I of course did not like hearing that at first. But once you get rid of that expectation and accept that that is their nature...they don't really get under your skin anymore.

This is not one of my lessons, but something I want to share here with you and yes, of course, I would be more than glad to listen to it too and take it in me even more.

One of the things that brings us close to each other is this wonderful word called "respect". I respect you for contributing to my thoughts. I respect you for trying to give me some answers from your point of view. If it weren't for you, I might have been left alone. Alone with my thoughts... and a hanging thread. I'm not rushing to say m y thing. I learn to pause, to wait, to ponder, to respect. To respect you as a human being, as a fellow traveller in our shared life. I learn to respect this place that has opened its arms to welcome me and gives me the freedom to say whatever thought I carry with me. I show respect to this place by trying to be the best I am. Everybody is right and nobody is right. The only thing that is truly right is love. And kindness. And respect.

(Written with all my love for this place and its people)

Don't be an idiot.

Everytime I am about to do anything I ask myself "would an idiot do this?" If he would then I do not do that thing.

This is something I always tell to my students who I love with all my heart and to whom I owe everything...

When life gives you pain or difficulty, try with all your heart to rise above. Seeing the pain and the difficulty from high above, you realize what is truly important in life and when you get back on the ground you are able to stand stronger on your feet.

If you can't do this, if you think it is difficult, don't worry, it's ok. Just change your angle of view. And watch how much relieved you will feel.

I'm no pyschic. My niece is pyschic she talks to & sees the dead. Her birthday is January 19 Capricorn. She's young a teenager. I have forgotten how old she is 16 17 18. Astrology is a science. Will is the strongest than natal chart. Nothing is impossible. With God all things are possible. Nothing can stop your destiny. 'How about if God was like one of us. God is great. God is good' song.

I trust but it's tested & earned. Everything is tested. I don't believe until it's tested. One of my favourite quotes is from Linda Goodman star signs believe & you have won
