Not everyone is a flower child singing Kum Ba Yah. IF you want that, start your own forums.
@ kitecrazy - Ha! I am certainly not a flower child and I can't stand KumBaYah! (I nearly strangled my guitar teacher when he suggested I learn that in the early days)
How you or anyone else
think and react to events external to you are something only you have control of. No-one else is driving the bus that is your brain. If people don't want to take what I suggested at face value and actually be thankful for what they have got, and spend their time being productive, that's up to them. If they would rather bitch and moan, that again is up to them, but I suggest it is an incredible waste of time. Everything is a balance, no-one needs to start their own forum, although frankly, I would be relieved if all the nay-sayers took their destructive whinging elsewhere, but that aint going to happen.
I'm all for constructive feedback, but that really isn't what we have been seeing here.
edit: just reviewed this reply after coming home from work, my you
could be construed a bit personally. My apologies. I have edited my reply to reflect that the 'you' refers to any and every individual (including myself) facing any given situation. I would like to emphasise that I don't think kitecrazy has been the one making destructive, negative, nihilist posts in this thread or anywhere else, in fact many of kitecrazy's replies in this and other threads have been quite constructive.
