    Be very honest whenever you answer that question. Are you? How are you a positive influence?

    Oh, the non-judger?


    Friend says: He's ugly.


    You: Let us not look at his physical appearance alone but look at his entire character. He might be a good person, let us not judge him so harshly!~!

    lolo

    Pretty much, yeah. I started my workout program back in December '09 and now almost all the guys at work started working out, too, trying to beat me to a 6-pack. It's kinda cool being such a positive influence...and the newly developing eye candy at work is always welcome. icon_biggrin.gif

    So explain why you are hanging around a bunch of judgmental people in the first place, then. It has been said that your friends are a reflection of you, after all.

    Well that's good enough for me to make a sweeping generalization without exception that one is completely defined by with whom they associate. I mean after all, it HAS been said!

    I try to be. My husband on the other hand very much is. Even though he is as sarcastic everytime his lips move; his thought process with seeing the bigger picture is like Gandhi (been tested).

    I do try to see all sides which can be very internally conflicting (being a gemini/ cancer). At work I am a chef/cook in a nursing home where the residents can be "difficult", but I try to keep the mantra "They are here for a reason" going to make me understand them better.

    For me, knowing more about a person helps me cope with issues. I learned this from my student teaching with difficult students. It is from teaching (still haven't found a teaching job yet) that I really see the importance of role modeling and how being positive effects the people around you.

    I have also had bouts of depression in my life and for me to fight them I try and talk myself into a positive attitude. I really do believe that a good person isn't just good but tries to be good and positive; and thats the most important part is the desire to be a better person that makes us human.

    What a wild conclusion to jump to. It means my friends can come to me with their problems, mistakes, and issues and know I'll listen and not judge them. They feel safe telling me things.

    I try to be. I've had acquaintances tell me I'm easy to talk to, friends know I am there for them if they need a hand.

    Nope, not a good influence. Steer clear, boys.

    That Barb's just a bitter, scabies encrusted hag. There, how is that for bringing the level of blank-staring joy down a notch?

    And I don't want to, either. If your piss poor attitude here is any reflection of what you're like in real life, it's amazing you've lived long enough to pass puberty.

    But then again, you're probably a shy guy in real life who has no friends, so you take your anger out anonymously online.

    Yay for e-thugs! icon_biggrin.gif

    I just don't understand how you could tolerate being around a bunch of judgmental people if you don't share at least some of those traits. Or can it be safely assumed that your assigned role in this lovely arrangement is to play the martyr to compassion and propriety to superficially make yourself look more evolved?

    Wait, don't answer that.
