Good reply. And the beginning description sounds like someone I knew once lol
I believe it's inevitable that we all know people like that, but it may never come to light in the course of your friendship.
Sure it does that's why said once knew. There's usually red flags. It's whether we pay attention to them or ignore them or put up with them. 🤷🏼♀️
That depends a lot on the nature of the "flag". For example, I have a buddy I like and respect, but we had to agree not to discuss politics at all. Though it disappointed me to discover his views (which he offered to explain but I declined in favor of a simple pact)", I couldn't see throwing out everything else because of this. Now, if I had discovered he had a penchant for playing naked with children, or was involved in human trafficking, or something equally abhorrent, that would have been another story. On the same thought, there are things I may learn about someone, not having known before, that I know wouldn't bother me at all.
I have to admit I've come close the last couple of years
I hit a point in my life where everything went wrong. Had to break up with my girlfriend because I loved her so much and she didn't. Which is hard to do when you're 19 lol. This dude tried to kill me and then ruined a lot of really good stuff for me. I lost my car, had no money, lost my job and had no one to turn to.I was ready to give up, in fact I did. I walked down the street towards the train tracks. I felt absolutely nothing. No fear, no over the top emotions. Just the desire to die. And I kept thinking about how everything I worked so hard on, friends, money, love, my career, it was all just blown up in my face at once. And all of a sudden this bird flew into me. And landed on a tree branch behind me. I stared at it and it stared back so oddly. When I turned around it looked like every bird in our town was there. On the telephone wires and flying. I kept walking and another swooped into me. And now the bits that were flying landed onto the street blocking my path, staring right at me. Almost none of them behind me. It was at that moment I remembered that people say crows are the symbol of death and all of a sudden I felt all these really upset and I started crying. So I turned around and went home.But I went on to come back way better. Got new friends left parts of my old life behind me, got a car again, got into my dream career field. All because at that moment I decided not to give up.There's nothing God will put in your way that you can't overcome. He just won't do it.
Thank you for sharing you experience. My "birds" are my 2 daughters and grandson. They already lost one parent.
I'm sorry to hear. I'm glad you can still be there for them
I try 🤷🏼♀️
Omg lol I knew someone just like that... And same... Life is short rather have less "real" friends than more "fair weather" friends
You too? Yeah I've dealt with several "friends" like that, along with the last guy I liked. I dumped all of them! Felt good too
Lol I bet it did 😊😅
well, sometimes people do get busy working... or have plans to do something for someone else that day... happened to me this winter... someone wanted me to jump up and haul a dryer and washing machine for them 40 miles away... i was working 6 days a week at the time, had to decline
i'd have to borrow a truck by the way... i only have a muscle car in my own custody
@LEADFOOTboi I agree there's busy. But there's also people that use busy as an excuse. Someone says they too busy to help you but then spends hours on social media or Skyping out playing video games, wasn't really busy, just really didn't want to help you. But then those the very ones that expect everyone to jump for them when they need something
@LEADFOOTboi @Brainsbeforebeauty Exactly! I have known... I won't call them friends anymore, but, people, that would jump to do something for others or themselves... yet not me.I'll give you an example-I was helping a former friend last year on a project at his house: for free! I was just enjoying us spending time together. Yet when I needed help working on my house, or needed a favor- such as a ride somewhere to pick up something? He expected others to help me! He never once went out of his way to help me 😡That is NOT how a friendship works. I got sick of being used and deleted him from my life.
I don't blame you. I swear we knew same person lmao or at the least they was distant relations 😁😂
they could be cousins... and in that case... RED FLAG
@Brainsbeforebeauty, cry all you want... you know i'm right
@LEADFOOTboi Oh l agree lol
Do you need some TP to dry your tears now?
@LEADFOOTboi I'm not discussing TP with you, you might try to raid my house next lol 😂😂
@Brainsbeforebeauty, that ain't true... if you said "yes, sure, i could use some TP", i wouldn't raid your place... cuz you ain't got none... but if you say "nah, i've got plenty" i just might if i get desperate enough...
@LEADFOOTboi I have none, really, fresh out, not a square to spare 😁😂
what a shame... i wonder if @Cynicaldreamer has TP?
@LEADFOOTboi I know who had a big industrial size roll but 🤐
@Brainsbeforebeauty, COME ONNNNNN... plzzzzzzzzzzzz... i only have 2 squares left
@LEADFOOTboi 😂😂 You better go back outside and find some leaves 😂😂
all the leaves around here are smaaaaaaaaall
@LEADFOOTboi The info might be in one of my questions 🤔 ot was it a mytake 🤔
@Brainsbeforebeauty, the kinds of leaves to use? i know the ones in groups of 3 are good
@Brainsbeforebeauty@LEADFOOTboi I leave you two alone for 12 hours and come back to a random discussion! Lol
@Cynicaldreamer 😞sorry ma'ambut he started it. Lol 😁
@Brainsbeforebeauty... pffffffff, i started it? what did i start? you're gonna blame me for everything ain't you? q w p
Sorry bout the boyfriend. And your dad's beard 😂

😂😂 lol you sure almost feel like a "Pusher" after reading that 😂😂jk lol
Well said. Because if you can't be honest with yourself, can't be honest with others.
Yeah never good to expect anything.
Well said I agree. Was raised as a Christian but things I've both experienced and seen from life and people I mostly don't think I believe.
@Brainsbeforebeauty Same here. Raised Christian, but too much hypocrisy, too many lies and two-faced people that were supposed to be revered and respected. I left, and found my own Way, my own set of things that I like, and find comfort in.
@JackSmy It irks me that people try to act like their Christians but they ignore the parts they don't want to follow. And yeah, the Lutheran school I went to taught everybody the same in the eyes of God but catered to the families with money
@Brainsbeforebeauty Seems best to find your own Way, in life, knowing the basics and the cultural aspects of Christianity, in American society. I can't hate that, really, as it is in so much of the culture, and even linguistic idioms!I just can't follow, nor believe those things anymore.
And keep putting up with it, but then keep crying about it. That I ain't got time for
Yea. Keep whining about the problem without effort to solve it
Or the person, yet keep putting up with em. After a while it's your fault as well.
That's a lot of somethings lol but I hear you.
If this is in reference to my death penalty question. I don't try to sway anyone. Just when people bright God into it without any references, I did. Everybody is entitled to their beliefs. Just sad that some people have to die needlessly as a result.Still love yah tho ♥️
No nothing to do with that. I actually dropped it. Those questions are quite sensitive among many different people who have grown up with different cultures. It is good to know where we stand though. The one thing i do realize is that anyone can say where they stand but until it actually happens that is where the true test lies. We are still good. No worries. 😉
So you still write my name in the snow? 😅😂😂
That is a long name. I would need plenty of beer for that. 😂
You could just write BBB, that'd probably take one beer tops, just might wanna stay away from the Corona 😂
Tbh my beer of choice is Guinness. 😉
Ewww blah bleh 🤢🤮 lol
I like good beer like Guinness, Stella Artois, Sam Adams. 😉
I'm not much of beer drinker, but Sam Adams ok
What do you drink? 😗
Mostly whiskey but I can do mixed drinks with vodka or gin and cranberry
Same here 🙂
Nowadays it's the only way to be
Too bad so many aren't 🤷🏼♀️
Absolute facts I'd rather just tell me the straight out truth with it hurts or not then beat around the bush and lie to me
Supposed to say even if it hurts and not beat around the bush and lie to me
Exactly, truth might hurt, but lies hurt way more, and that's the end of anything for me
I don't really know who that is. But yeah, I don't put any stock in those so called faith "healers". It's usually a scam.
Yeah @Brainsbeforebeauty I agree with you
Thanks and thanks for always looking my questions 😂🤗I hope you're staying safe ♥️
*liking not looking lol
Awww your welcome @Brainsbeforebeauty and Pray your staying safe too , thank you
I can understand that!
intent is everything to me... i can forgive almost anything immediately because i know humans make mistakes... some of us make mistakes by not thinking about every consequence of an action... with good intentions
Yes That's a big one with me, too
If I see any signs of any of that type LOL I'm out... That's probably the main one for me too
Well and also not just when people lie to me, but when people lie to themselves. Can't expect them to be honest with you if can't even be honest with themselves
Yeah that's a biggy
I agree 👍
Of course, cuz most contradictions are a result of lies
@Brainsbeforebeauty, BUT WHAT WAS THE INTENT OF THESE LIES? ha...
I'd hope so. Unless it was in self defense for me. I wouldn't look down on someone who took a bad life to save an innocent life. But we agreed to disagree on that
Very true. And also, for me not just lying to me but those who lie to themselves. How can you expect them to be honest with you if they can't even be honest with themselves?🤷🏼♀️
Yeah that's a no- go deal breaker there.
Or lack of it
And a lack of mathematical formulation
