Some food for thought....

Cant remember where I saw this , but saved it for here ages ago. I know I'm often guilty of being judge mental at times. Its just human nature I guess...

I always figure everybody's got something going on - everybody is dealing with or coping with something in life. 

And then some people are just plain miserable.

But I try to give most the benefit of the doubt. :)

Seems like a positive way to look at things Lisa.
I myself often find I should keep a more open mind at times

We have a guy in his 80's who is at the gym just about everyday, its how he deals with life and interacts with people after his wife died. He's a good guy and seems lonely and it sucks at times because he will talk about his wife and he doesn't get nuts but he always starts to cry just a bit and its hard to deal with. But I always talk to him if he wants to.

Have a friend on FB who used to post on BB...don't recall his name there but Bando may know as I think he is friends with him as well. Anyways his wife was diagnosed with cancer a few months back and its a grim situation but he is doing far better than I ever would. Breaks your heart knowing what he is dealing with and you wish there was something you can do.

Was he the guy who was a retired teacher? He was a really nice poster, very sorry for his troubles. Sad indeed

Are you guys talking about bergmuscle?   Think his name is Dan?  Sounds like him anyway. I followed his journal a fair bit and he would post in mine whenever he was around.  That's really too bad.  I was wondering what happened to him.  He's a really nice guy!

Thats his BB name, he isn't retired and is a good guy. Gotta wonder why all the shitty stuff happens to good people.
