I canít say that ďEverything I learned from life I learned from ehellĒÖ..thatís taking things way too far. (The site has only existed for about 8 yrs +/-) There are many life lessons one learns from books, movies, other people, school, observation, and just living life itself for decades.
I do like the term JADEing. And Iíve picked up some cool household tips.
It's always good to get other opinions and perspectives.
One thing that has been reinforced is that people often donít really want a solution. They want to be told they are right, even when they know what they did was okay they need to come here for validation and when they donít get it, they often donít take it well. They often refuse to face that they are the problem or at least contributing to it. Or they modify the advice/feedback to suit their needs.
Another thing that has been reinforced is that many people live in fear that someone will get mad at them, that someone wonít like them if they complain or mildly confront or face a problem head on. Or theyíre actually afraid of someone. So they dodge the issue, smile, and just put up with mistreatment. Or, they continue to JADE. Thatís sad.
But to counter that, Iíve seen some stories where people put on their grown up pants, learn to say ďnoĒ, walk away, and develop a spine. And thatís a good thing.
