    Like I give a ****

    Okay. Who cares if anybody likes them. And I mean anybody. Once you see the poll, you'll know what I mean.

    Re: Like I give a ****

    I know, one side said like and the other said approve. Sorry. No coffee as yet.

    There are three people that I wouldn't want to hurt, offend, anger, whatever, and this is coming from someone who used to be a people pleaser. My sole remaining sister, my daughter and my best friend. Anybody else runs a distant 78th or so, I wanna say.

    Oh, and. People on the internet don't make the chart.

    But the reason I voted "me and only me" is because everything else is subjective. People do strange things. I once had my best friend stop speaking to me for fifteen years. Never even said why. When we reunited on FB, she said it was because she knew me getting married would change everything.

    People come and go. It's the nature of life. I guess the end result is that I've become somewhat jaded, in my realization of no permanence. That's probably a good thing. I mean, it beats NOT getting it, and being heartbroken every time a friend, family member or loved one disappears over the horizon. Right?

    Me and my family because my friends are family, and my definition of the word family is a lot more restricted than just blood relations.

    Right. Like on here, I would say my best friend. But yeah. She's my sister. My heart will BREAK when she passes. My only hope is to be first to go.

    Re: Like I give a ****

    I think everyone enjoys being liked and excepted by others regardless of who they are.

    I am who I am and if that disappoints anyone else I am sorry I am not what you expected but Im not gonna change for you. I feel when persons expect others to change who they are to better suit themselves they are being selfish.

    I like/love the people I care about because of who they are and not who they could be.

    Re: Like I give a ****

    Me and my family. My close friends are considered family to me, so those are included. If anyone else doesnt like me or doesnt approve of me, it doesnt really matter because those are people who I can chose to have in my daily life or not. My self and my family are the most important people in my life and I would always do my best to make sure Im doing the right things for them and for myself, so naturally I care what they think.
