I agree. They just want someone to lead in about how frustrated they are with not being able to do something, then they throw in a "brag barb".

I have had some on here write me about all of their boyfriends, or how they could unload the guy they have now with 5 prospects waiting in the wings. It all just sounds so phony. Even if it were true, does it matter...do they have Anthony Sullivan, The Shamwow Guy Vince, Billy Mays, Tony Robbins, and Ron Popeil in line???

"Closure."

The person who coined that word apparently believes that 1) life is supposed to be neat and tidy, 2) that the best way to heal emotional wounds is to drag them out into the light of day and talk about them endlessly with the person who caused them, and 3) the ensuing discussion will make things right, particularly if you have a poignant little piano track playing in the background, la a Lifetime Movie Of The Week.

So what about yours? What's your fave?
Signal with bells ringing in the background: Pharoah cpg is back

Another of your threads immediately spawned to allegedly assist the "socially inept"?

You get a kick out of mocking folks who seek some form of advice, don't you? In the real world, noone's free of stupid or wrong actions.

If your tough on your children you now have "control issues", and are "abusive" to them (god forbid you put your hands on your child that is now considered a crime), if you do ANYTHING more than once you're "addicted", and not understanding (legitimately) your spouse means your insensitive even though there may be absolutely no logic to the thought in the first place.

I hate how the new thing is how everyone's bad behavior can be traced back to their being a victim of some kind of hardship. Urgh.

You're probably right

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to run, the sharp end of the Pharoah's spear will meet my doomed bum any moment

Well, in many cases it is. But there is the option to break the cycle. So, yes, it is frustrating.

Oh no way, that isn't entitlement. They need some self esteem as 'fuel' to run on.....otherwise nothing is worth it or worth trying....
