Respect Is Two Way Street

Respect Begets Respect

      When people point you in different direction, don't attack them for trying to redirect your thinking.  There's no need to leave comments on other posts about how you felt you were treated badly. That further distances you from your goal and is similar to going around mommy by getting daddy's permission and pitting one parent against the other.


      No one who has been here long term is out to disparage anyone.


      Deleting your content shows a lack of respect for those who took the time to respond and attempt to help you. Your prior interaction (history) is the only way you and we can see your progress and know what's been said so we know better how to help you.

      Occasionally, mistakes in assessment or responses may be made or misinterpreted. You control your feelings not us. As Diane Joy says, "Take what you need and leave the rest."


   "Grow a backbone. A wishbone won't cut it."

(paraphrased from Tommy.)


   No one can make you fail but you.
