    This is bullshit…You don’t need to improve yourself. You’re ok the way you are. Get over it….stop reading this crap and just live a happy life.

    The only reason ppl r unhappy is because they have too much advice….They’re so confused, they don’t know what to do. Just pick a career, do it with sincerity and be happy Period!

    Angie, I missed commenting about your post on your cemetery. I’m fascinated, but let it slip by while I’ve been under the weather. Are you going to provide a link to your e-mail? Couldn’t find it–probably right under my nose, but, what can I say–I’m on pain killers!
