We all have our crosses to bear, they are always different, what bothers me may not bother you, vice versa… as we all know there is always someone worse off than you, always someone better off too.

I get amazed at what people get bothered by, what they let wind them up and so on, also at what they take for granted and yet it’s also odd how so many struggle to think for themselves too!

It matters…

If you listened to everyone on any subject, topic, you will always hear opposing views, conflicting advice and sometimes it’s bloody misleading/dangerous/costly/stupid!

It never pays to blindly follow what others say.

It does pay to listen but for christ sake people should make their own minds up.

They take for granted that they CAN think for themselves if they choose to, they take for granted what they do know, then blindly follow those who ain’t got a clue!

Sad to see, more so when there is so much misinformation out there.
I have been reminded of it a few times recently, online and offline.

Do you see this sort of crazy stuff happening?

It’s good to listen, silly to not think for yourself…

    I always find it better just to listen to someone else's woes, never offer advice, what works for one does not necessarily work for another.

    Sometimes it can be good to 'bend someone's ear' because it gets it out of your system and the listener is there simply to listen, someone on the outside looking in. I merely try to talk to friends and family who are stressed out, hopefully prompting the odd smile here and there.

    Every one of us needs a 'whipping post' and I have been simply that for many a friend in need.
