Just a few thoughts for the sun-ny* people out there who pop up, gush about their problems and expect me to gush along with them:
There are people with problems worse than yours.
People (like me) may have been in the middle of something (like a personal crisis. Yes, much like yours. No, of course not as great as yours. Whose problems are greater than yours anyway?) when you unexpectedly popped up, so don’t expect them to be sweet and sunny all the time.
Other people have better more important things to do than listen to your endless whimpers and rants.
Do yourself a favor: get over yourself.
And while you’re at it, go over my post on Coping with Stress. I believe I wasn’t of much help, but those tips just might.
Don’t get me wrong. I care about your problems. But it won’t hurt to (appear to) be sensitive sometimes.
*Sun-ny is a new term that iMoM coined just today. It refers to persons who think they are the Sun. You know, the great ball of fire around which the Solar System revolves.
And that’s that. I’m not about to squander any more of my time, creative energy and emotions on this.
