I try to enjoy life by not allowing certain situations to bring me down; such as the N. Korea, Iraq, and other political issues. I’ve lost many family members over the last few years and I’ve been trudgin’ along just fine – until, I run into someone who says, “You joke around too much! You need to be more serious!”. I’m a big guy! When I was younger I would have ripped the guys spinal cord out of his back, like in the first ‘Preditor’ movie; or slapped the taste of of his mouth, because I feel that he’s disrespecting my aura. Now that I’m older I know better. I’d love to just lash out with my verbal ‘Gatling Gun’ – but, I don’t. I’m attempting to change, into what I believe is a better person. Has anyone else ever felt like this? What do you think?
