I am very amused by people who pass judgment on their country’s political situation and the working of the government. Especially when they have never voted, never held an opinion, never stood up for their believes. My guess is that they probably don’t have a belief system. They just like to blame the system.
I think I can handle ignorance. Not everyone can know everything. That I get. Be consistent. Hypocrisy wont cover it up for you.
When it comes to the people we care about we tend to overlook their inadequacies. It is not denial but acceptance of who they are.
Gifting is an art. It takes time, money and lots of effort. I still believe it is the thought that counts. When the intentions are in the right place, gifting can actually be a very satisfying experience without much deliberation.
