Well this is a little of me on both sides of this chart. I think there will be for everyone. My husband and I got to making more money after we got our Assoc. Degrees, etc., etc.; but (I was the first to make it to and through college) both of my sisters suddenly felt like we should be supporting them. My older sister moved into our house to watch our daughters because I was an Independent Driver (my Suburban, not an 18-wheeler) and I sometimes went on overnight runs. Then my husband got offered a higher paying job here in SC, so we LET my sister live in our home in NC without paying rent. She was only responsible for her cable, phone, and utilities. After 1 and 1/2 years, we could no longer afford both places so we told her to clean the house for move-in condition and we would buy here a trailor. When we got up there the house was a mess. We looked for a phonebook to call Stanley Steamer and could not find one. I called my mother's house (which was 6 houses down) and my sister was told that we needed the book, after an hour and she still hadn't showed up; dh was pissed and said, "let's go". We had already paid $1000 towards her $2000 trailor, but, refused to give her anymore. She and my hypocrite BITCH (the woman you birthed me) felt as though we had wronged her in some way. My sister had nearly a month before we came up, which was plenty of time to "clean up" the house. We were supposed to get there and only need the carpet cleaners.

Wrong!

So you see, I definitely can hold a grudge, criticize, and exude great amounts of anger when pushed too far.

 I don't think everyone will have all of their attributes on one side.  I had at least one on the unsuccessful side-I say I keep a journal and really don't.  I have one, but never take the time to write in it.  I have written in it, but never regularly.  Otherwise, I'm good.

I have traits on both sides, and think we probably all do.

I'll admit that I have traits on both sides.  I'd like them all to be from the "Successful" side, so this gives me some goals.

I think it gives us all things to work on.
