I used to be cup half full, swinging lately to cut half empty with every battle I have to fight.
Not sure about personality trait , I'm like a domestic cat I guess . Docile when fed and stroked but with claws and teeth if I'm pushed lol .
sounds like me to,
Like everyone else I was always a glass half full person.I`m 58 and have been in pain all my life.But always enjoyed a good laugh and a joke over a moan anyday.
I threw my glass away this year when on top of all the things I had going on I was told I have fibro and sjogrens.
I have a couple of friends who have the audacity to sit and bemoan the most stupid of things,when they have their health,relative wealth,children and grandchildren.All things I don`t have.
Then I have a go,a lot can be said with humour to take the sting out of the tail,but now and then a bloody good verbal slap is called for LOL.
I suppose I do still have my glass as I am sitting here thinking how nice paint smells(my neighbour is decorating for me)and my Yorkie is making me laugh as she want`s attention and is threatening to sit on the keyboard.
The simplist of things make me happy.
Love and hugs Butterfly54xxxxxxx
hi i agree with you lally you have to make the best of things lifes to short to be moaning and groaning. yes i get down and have a rant at hubby(poor man)hes so laid back and good and suprotive and i sometimes have a good cry which i usualy feel better after. I'm better since accepting i have FM/CFS and all it brings withit and that i cant do what i used to but its very frustrating at times. mind with fibro fog we can have a good laugh at some of the things i do. soft hugs xx
Ive always been a "go-getter" the sort of person everyone comes to with their problems (and I would usually sort them ) I raised my daughter alone and have looked after over 40-50 foster children as a single carer, I have always loved a good night out with friends and enjoyed life (although its not always been easy) BUT now I am finding it increasingly difficult to "put on a brave face" to be there for others, I make excuses not to go out, I dont like to moan but find myself slipping into a good old moan (I feel nobody listens when I do have a moan anyway ) after years as seeing my glass half full, I'm afraid my glass is rapidly becoming EMPTY! xx
