 "When I was a rebellious child. I aggravated my teachers. They said I was SMART....but wouldn't do the work etc... (true story, lol). My parents would go to the teacher confrerences and come home and talk to me about how I don't apply myself @@. I would tell them year after year that "the teacher doesn't like me, picks on me, is mean to me". One year my mom said to me....."ALL the teachers pick on you? If there is a problem, who is the consistent figure in the problem? Who is the common denominator?" (I hated that btw). Point being....if EVERYONE tells you (or the vast majority) you are doing something wrong. There comes a point to consider....maybe it is me?!? "

That is all. If you have problems in life...and EVERYONE is complaining about you. There comes a time to self examine.

BTW, I got all As in college. 4.0 My teachers loved me! LOL. I turned it around after I owned my own laziness :p

We hired a new mechanic from another state that had good references. He did a poor job for us and the boss let him go - the guy argued that he had done a good job at his old job - my boss said, well, you are here now and not doing a good job. Maybe that applies to this "new person" too.

3 . "When my kids were kids...and they can attest to this! They would say "so and so (some kid) was mean to me today! Said they weren't my friend" or "my sister hit me for NO reason!" and I ALWAYS responded in the 25 years I had kids of any age in my house "what happened BEFORE that? What did you do before they did that?""

Cause and affect....it is real. No one wakes up and decides "I am going to mess up someone's day".....well, no one without some disorder, but I digress. So, again, what did you DO to cause your own reality?? I reflect on that for myself regularly!! Did today go poorly? What did I do to cause that outcome? Could I have done better? Could I have avoided a conflict? Then, I learn from it, and try again.
