well chai, i forgive your overweaning tooth sucking attitude. i have defended those who cannot defend themselves and risked personal harm, because i endured child abuse in a foster home and refuse to stand by when violence is visited upon others who cannot defend themselves. i did not do that simply in the locker room as teenager, but in the board room as an adult, being fired twice, once for refusing to fire a homosexual who worked for me that my boss wanted fired, and another time for complaining to corporate headquarters when my boss continued to call the black men working for me "frank's [email protected]
#$#@'%. both times i lost jobs paying me over $100,000/year. i doubt you have a scintilla of courage to do the same.
there are people who stand up for their principles regardless of the repercussions, and those who run away from discomfort. clearly you are one of the latter. so i don't care about reprobation coming from a moral coward like you.
well, what can I say? you're just a prince of a guy.
what is an "overweaning, tooth sucking attitude"?
oh, I looked it up, and basically it describes you, the arrogant hero who saves the day, and thinks others who aren't like them need to be saved.
I make no apologies for not liking sports. I don't care for any of what you, izzie or others like about it. Not meaning that as an insult, that's why I put Izzie's name in there, as I repect her, as far of what I've read what she says here. So, if I can say I don't care for what Izzie likes, there isn't any way you can be insulted by my saying I don't like something you have high value for.
What I don't care for, and I've noticed this in a lot of people into sports, is this aggressive nature you obviously have k.
I don't care to be around aggressive people, braggarts, or sports fanatics. No excuses, I just don't like it.
As far as your doubts as to my morals, or courage, again, I'm not into competition. You win, you're much more moral and brave than I could ever imagine to be.
You're just all around a better human being.
See, you can't enjoy hearing that though, because you didn't have to defeat me to have me say it.
you know what I've discovered I really love?
I've been going about 4 times a week for the last month, and it brings to me what I've been searching for, for years.
Noncompetitive, inward looking, quiet, raising awareness, increasing ability to observe, turning the mind toward peace. It's heavenly.
You know what one of my favorite things about practicing yoga is? After a class, if you want to talk to someone, both of you naturally find yourself talking in a gentle whisper. The focus is totally on what the other person is saying. That peace and focus starts to engrain itself into the rest of your waking hours.
It's 180 degrees away from what sports represents to me.
