I just answered a question on the “Quora” site, and thought I’d share it(my answer) with you. The particular question isn’t vital to the sense of the answer I gave, which was….
“Do NOT spend your precious life worrying about the opinions/reactions of others, or being desperate for their approval.
If you live with love, compassion, kindness, sympathy and empathy towards others.. then, if they disapprove or react badly… that is THEIR problem, NOT yours.
Be the REAL ‘you’… not the person who you feel others wish you to be!!
In my opinion, the answer to the question in the title, is, “NO”….. whether folks think bad things of you OR good things… because their reactions are all about where THEY are ‘coming from’, and are irrelevant to your own position! 🖐😊

This will take just 6 mins of your time.
I’d love to hear your reactions…..
Hi everyone. This is just a brief addition to my “Free Food For Thought” site, to explain the lack of recent additions to either this site or to my “HomeSpun” music site….
Healthwise, I’m unfortunately going through a rough patch at the moment. But… I’m hoping that I’ll be making regular additions to both sites again, very soon.
Maybe my temporary slow progress will give you a chance to ‘catch-up’ on either or both of my sites. 😊
In the meantime, the sites are, “Still Open All Hours”, and here’s a small HomeSpun offering (done using just a bass guitar and effects pedal) to prove it!
😄. I created this version when it was the theme music to “Open All Hours” with Ronnie Barker, prior to the current(still as good, in my view) “Still Open All Hours” with David Jason…. still as droll, as nostalgically relaxing, and.. as funny as the original series’. 😆👍.
N.B…. If you don’t normally use ‘Dropbox‘, just take out a (totally free) subscription via either the desktop site or the App… which will give you free access to the the ‘Document‘ and/or ‘MP4′ music files that I keep in my Dropbox libraries. I pay the dues… not you!.. Ok?😄👍
I hope you enjoy this version(please let me know if the link doesn’t work for you)….
Just a brief thought for today…..
Texting, like the spoken word, cannot be retracted, ‘unspoken’ or ‘untexted’.
Careful what you text, and/or speak…
If it isn’t kind.. forget it!!
More easily said than done??!…. So.. who said it was going to be easy ALL the way?, eh??🙃😊
Want to live a ‘magic’ life, where not everything is easy??….
They got us again!!… gullible, predictable public.. consumers of any rubbish that’s fed to us.
How can we be so stupid??!…. you would think that we would be wary of stupid terms such as ‘Clean Brexit‘, ‘Hard Brexit‘ and ‘Bremain‘, which are so obviously, ludicrously comic-book stupid, for a start!
I wrote this to David Icke a while ago when I found that I totally agreed with him on this…..
We were right Dave!… The referendum was purely a distraction, and there was always Article 50 waiting in the wings!!
What a diabolically expensive distraction!… A total waste of time, votes, and money!!! And who pays??…. the usual… Joe Public!
Now.. watch this:- https://youtu.be/tvYfpUiW_Bo [click/tap link]
The details of “Article 50” are irrelevant gobbledegook. It was put in place for the simple reason that: “If the ‘powers that actually be’ don’t like the outcome of a referendum…. if the result is not an expedient for forwarding their pre-ordained plans, “Article 50” can be used as a lever to reverse whatever result is obtained from the public!! And we fall for these ploys every time. It’s time we woke up to what is REALLY going on!!
Referendums(no.. it’s not referenda!) are just another instance, along with elections, of distractions which are provided to give us the ILLUSION that we have a choice… WE DON’T!
We could have real choices if we would only wake up to the current situation! Until then.. it seems that we prefer the ‘ignorance is bliss‘ state.
Come on!… No, REALLY!!….
If we only engage with a single word from ‘Auld Lang Syne’…. let it be “kindness”.
