In reply to: who are you to judge so harshly 's message, "This holier-than-thou expostulation was probably written by a taker" on Wednesday, October 10, 07:15:51am

I am in my mid-50's and at a point in life where I am less into getting backpats, more into simplifying my life and eliminating situations and emotions that are negative and destructive. The OP came across as someone resentful-which in my humble opinion is a negative emotion. I only wanted to provide my ideas on how the OP can change their outlook so as to be happier overall.
Recently watched an episode of the Suze Orman show-a mid-30's couple was on, the wife wants a major career change. Wants to pursue a passion-asked Suze if it was a good idea to quit her fairly nice paying job that also provides generous medical benefits. She kept going on about wanting to be happy with her job, etc. Suze basically told her that with their current list of income/expenses and the loss of benefits that would result-NO she cannot pursue her dream job-right now on a full time level. Suze told her and all viewers currently unhappy with their situations to adopt an attitude adjustment-be thankful you have a job, making decent money and stay true to current financial obligations. Moral of the story-many scenarios can be be percieved differently if the person chooses to look at it positively rather than negatively.
BTW-I am hardly a taker. My family would tell you I am quite the opposite.
