Just Stop Already

Stop complaining about your life when you are doing nothing to change it!! You can't pay your bills? Get a job, babysit, petsit, sell stuff - just make it happen!! Don't like where you live? Move! Don't like how your SO treats you? Leave them!

Don't come on here asking for advice on how to pay your bills because there's more money going out than coming in and expect no one to tell you to get a job. When I wanted more income, I turned to babysitting and found children to watch around my schedule. I've also been selling things we don't need to try to get my student loans paid off. I saw a need and I made it happen.

I thought this was common sense? Guess common sense is not so common anymore....

If there's a will, there's a way! Make it happen already!

People here are full of excuses. They ask a stupid question, get obvious answers and follow it up with BS excuses as to why that wouldn't work.

It's natural for women to make excuses and blame everyone else for their own misfortunes rather than resolve them.

It's a sticky subject.

On one hand people have a victim complex, on the other hand it's really not as simple as that. There's a lot more going on psychologically, socially, and culturally that effect out ability to do something.

Many times people feel frustrated or trapped and don't know what to do.  Getting ideas here or just venting makes them feel better.

Most would rather have the excuses

 I don't judge those whose lives I do not live. Moving isn't feasible for all, and leaving someone, while it seems like a no brainer in many instances, we don't know their situation or hardships. As for money, some have two or three jobs and sadly still don't make ends meet. I am thanksful not be one of those people, but I won't claim to know how THEY can get out of their situation.

It's so frustrating! I mean if you've actually tried to fix it, then complain away, but if you've done nothing to fix it then stop. That's as bad as doing drugs/speeding/driving drunk and getting caught and getting pissed at the cops....don't do it if you don't want to get caught. It really is a simple concept.
