Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Considering how my weekends have gone the last few months, I am wondering why I don't work the weekends and take two days off during the week.

After years of providing advice to people, within the last year I have stopped giving people advice and decided to let them do things however they think without my input. Why? Because I am usually ignored OR people only take half the advice and things don't work...then its my fault. Now, I don't give advice and that somehow makes me heartless...or something. I haven't figured it all out yet. I find it strange people don't listen to me, but when I don't say anything all they want is my advice, then ignore it. So, I started telling them, "I can't help you until you want to help yourself. When you are ready to help yourself I will do everything I can to help you out." Somehow, that is still wrong. Oh, well. Some people have to learn the hard way and others never do learn. What can you do? :confused:

I admit that is a hard lesson to learn.

I eat M&Ms one at a time, letting the chocolate melt inside under my tongue before chomping.

A wood stove with an 8" flu will not heat a room with a poured concrete floor. Especially when the stove is elevated above the floor.

Since my dad died less than a week before Christmas one year, December is always hard.

I’m sorry my friend. Know that you’re not alone in this struggle. I could gladly see the month removed from the calendar.
