My view of myself may not be accurate

I am truly fascinated by the difference between how I view myself and how others see me. At one time I would have thought they were very similar, but increasingly I realize they are not. Two great examples of this: The first is the image above. My son drew this on my...

Please say no

If you are going to say yes and not do it, please say no. If you are going to say yes and do it half way, please say no. If you are going to say yes and procrastinate, please say no. If you are going to say yes and shuffle it off to someone else, please say no. If you...
