It is so hard to be around people who use the "I can't help it!" excuse all of the time. I have a few acquaintances that blame everything (including their poor attitudes) on past experience. Yes, life can be hard, but we CAN help the way we deal with it!

good circumstances sure help one develop a good attitude! lol! sometimes i have to talk myself out of being in a bad mood, as it really doesn't get me anywhere to be in a crappy mood all day. sometimes those little talks work, and sometimes not!
