Congratulations Soap for standing up to the Soap Opera of "blame". The encouragement you give to your children will prove to be a vital ingredient to their success. How they view the world as a "boogie man" or one of endless "opportunity" is a reflection of you-congrats. How some parents instill such a defeatist attitude in their children constantly puzzles me. I simply was not brought up to concentrate on the negative, rather to engulf the positives in this world full of opportunity. We are absolutely the most blessed people and nation on earth and all some can do is constantly find fault. Fortunately most of that mistrust and disenchantment is the direct result of misinformation and perception as opposed to fact. Have a good one and say hello to your dad.
In my opinion, I would rather hang out with friends that have a positive outlook on life, not always talking about their problems or others problems. Not Blamers or conspiracists, or "victims" Just wondering what others think and whether it determines who you associate with.
Do you believe negativity is Toxic or beneficial? I know a thought provoking question for "bull session", but anyway! :???:
