UGH!!!!

Why do people say one thing and do another??? I dont get it! Either your going to do something or your not. Your either here or your not. It makes perfect sense to me. And it should to anybody with any sense!!! I can understand if circumstances prevented someone from doing something they said they would do... but to not do something simply because you dont want to???? THATS CRAZY!!! If you dont want to why dont you just say no in the first place???

People can be soooo empty headed!!! And people wonder why its so hard to trust others. Its because of broken words and promises! Its completely stupid! I will never understand fully why anyone would give their word on something and not follow through! I mean come on!!!!!

Ok Im done venting... this just really irritates me!!!!!!!!

A New Spin...

Life can take so many unexpected turns! Have you ever thought you figured something out then it turns around and becomes the exact oppisite of what you thought??? What about ever given up on a friend who seemed to be too distant to ever turn back around. Someone you fought with over and over again about the same issue and then right as you think your done for and you start to just give up they suddenly take a turn towards the right direction?? Its amazing to me how these things happen. Ya know sometimes when we think if we just push someone hard enough they may learn eventually... but the old saying is very true some people just have to learn the hard way. Like the little boy who refuses to do his school work - and gets held back a year because he failed. You would think after the first time he would learn... so you push and push him to do whats right yet he still doesnt want to listen.... so for the second year in a row hes held back. Well the same begins in the next year- do you push him? Or do you leave him to his own fate? Its times like these when we need to step back and look at our responses.... if we push the child like we have done in the past - pointing out what will happen if he doesnt listen again - he will only rebel and do his own thing trying to prove you wrong... But if we step back and let him to his own fate he may actually learn from his mistakes....
Then again we see the other side of it - if we dont say something then he may never learn and he may end up in another year of younger kids and the same homework hes had for the past two....
Where do we draw the line? When do we quit reaching out? When are our words of wisdom and love completely useless and we are doing nothing more then casting our pearls before swine???

I guess I will never know... but this I have learned - I wont push so much... but I will never give up! I will just take it from a different approach.
