and I think I can run the world.

I came in this morning with both barrels loaded, firing off emails full of unsolicited advice to friends and family. Of course my expectation is that they will fall on their knees in gratitude for these pearls of wisdom while singing my praises. THIS NEVER HAPPENS. Duh.

Thankfully my grown sons have learned to handle me. I usually get a response like, "Thanks for the input, I got this handled," from them. Sometimes I get stunned silence from my other family & friends. Sometimes they politely, and not so politely, tell me to butt out!

I saw a post in the D/S forum with the line, "Not my circus, not my monkeys." I MUST LEARN THIS.

Is there a 12-Step program for people like me????

Even if you can't control the world around you, you are still the master of your own soul.

maybe come here when you want to give advice? At least is is solicited at that point. I think sometimes that is why this is so successful, everyone likes to give advice, few like to take it. Especially unsolicited .

At least you recognize you do that, most in that position do not.

Yeah, Newlease it's called a Codependent Anon meeting. I'll pick you up around 7 pm ok?

I love "Not my circus, not my monkeys". So true. Sometimes I can do it and then sometimes I just wanna show those monkeys how it's done.


Growing forward

When I think about giving advice here, I am usually beat to the punch by someone who does it much better than I could!

If people would just do everything MY way, the world would be a better place. I'm a dictator - but I'm a benevolent dictator!
