2 recent examples.
Couple on homes from hell buying a holiday home in Cyprus. Builder changes plans so they complain. Builder offers to refund. Instead they decide they want to go ahead but carry on slagging off builder on internet etc.
Person selling stuff outside their house. Someone steals an item when they are not here. Obviously not a nice thing to happen but if you leave your property outside your house etc.

Yeah i often read threads on here saying what tossers their ex's or partners are and it makes me wonder why they got with them in the first place.
Surely not every one of them had a personality transplant 6 months into the relationship.

According to the King James Bible, Job proclaimed 'For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.'

In general terms I take this to mean that if we think negatively, we will manifest negativity in our lives.

The fact is that many people are the architects of their own misfortunes. We can't cure all of our ills simply by practising positive thinking, but looking on the bright side does go some way help sweeten the sometimes bitter pills that we are required to swallow.

izzy, I read in the paper today that, according to 'researchers in the US' (whatever that means), optimists are less likely to have a stroke than pessimists.

It may be that we bring more upon ourselves than we suspected.

I'm greatly encouraged to hear that, ami, especially as I've largely given up reading the papers because the news so often gets in the way of my own irritating PMA.

I feel I'm far more likely to have a stroke when reading about the antics of gutless self-serving politicians, greedy bankers, grasping energy companies, facile slebs, etc angry

Sometimes it is exceedingly hard to look on the bright side....sad

yep, if some people werent in such a rush to get up the duff and really got to know their partner before hand, they would realise they were a waste of space long before they dragged another poor child into the mess sad
