I am a very private person. That is why this blog was a hard first step for me. Displaying my life story puts me in a position to share my life and to encourage other to do so. I have such a tough wall up and rarely let people past. Its like I take them through this obstacle course prior to entering.....like a test to see if they are worthy to "know" me. Why? I dont know.

I do know that I trust no one. You have to earn your trust. I look at trust as a point scale. You start out with zero and as you go, you earn more points. If you screw up, I deduct points. Once you get back to zero, I no longer feel any need for either of us to maintain any form of communication. Am I bitter, yes, in many instances. But I dont want to keep "dead ends" lying around.

I had over 1300 friends on facebook about 2 months ago. I now have about 400. Why? Half the people where cousins of people I know or relatives of people I knew, or people I went to high school with but dont even talk to anymore, friend's spouses, etc....just a ton of random people that I really dont even aquaint myself with. So I deleted them. Deleted the "dead ends",

If you chance to meet a frown
Do not let it stay.
Quickly turn it upside down
And smile that frown away.

No one likes a frowning face
Change it for a smile.
Make the world a better place
By smiling all the while.
