Re: Re: grandkids/societal whiners

This has turned into a society of crybabies and whiners. It makes me
sick. You are responsible for your own happiness or lack of same.
Everyone tries to blame their problems on someone else. What tripe! You
should see the looks I get when I make the statement that my parents did
a pretty good job all things considered. My shortcomings are of my own
making. I know people (some on this list) who had the most dysfunctional
upbringing imaginable and they are absolutely the finest people I know.
They had the guts and the brains to adapt and overcome and I am so proud
of them for that. Courage! Not excuses. I admire that. Ohhhh bad soapbox
for me to get on y'all - sorry!!
