> Hey. Sounds like things are kinda suckin' in your world right now. Sorry!! I too have a VERY difficult time asking for anything....even when I'm desperate..... I have just always handled everything myself. On the rare occasion I have suggested to someone, (usually someone, who I've willingly helped out in the past and I consider to be my friend) that I could use some assistance, I have been met with what I perceive as either a luke warm response are jusrt outright refusal (usually followed by some lame excuse). Unfortunately there are people in the world who seem unbelieveably selfish and inconsiderate......but just when my cynical outlook and negative perception of things begins to win out, I get a call from someone who seems genuinely concerened for my well being (and no, not just my mom). who is willing to really go out of their way to give me a hand and does this without me even asking.
> Yeah ther are some abusive, abrasive, inconsiderate, and deceitful beings out there, but fortunately we're not all like that. Maybe you just run with a rough crowd ;) Hope things get better for you real soon. I'm sure they will. and remember..."If your nose runs, and your feet smell, you're built upside down."

you hit the nail on the head with that one, kid!:) thank you *so much* for caring enough to respond with kindness...it seriously makes me want to cry (yes i am a total mess lol).:)
you know what...you're right...there are kind people out there...i just don't surround myself with them lol. i met this one person who is nasty and of course her friend is nasty too that i hang with (what's that saying...birds of a feather flock together) and so i am just hating it. she slanders me and her friend believes her and treats me like dirt and god it's just too hard to explain it all. but i am HATING life. i hope to extricate myself from them completely soon but due to a few details i can't right now.
but there are people that have been really kind to me, too...i do still believe in kindness. i do. and that was such an excellent point to make.
thanks again. i know they will get better. may you have a great day....and that quirky joke was just what i needed! (i am having a seriously downer day)
thank you kid, my friend. you are wonderful!!:-)
