Whining. Whining. Whining.
06/22/2010
IconGood Morning Dr. Laura, Well, ya did it again! You saved me from being a royal B****. Yesterday, while I was on my way to pick up my grandson again from school, something I do daily (best job I've ever had), you had a caller complaining that after only 4 1/2 yrs of marriage she didn't believe her and her spouse had the same "values" any longer. You broke it all down to her and finally told her she was just "whining". (You crack me up). She really couldn't pin-point what was so horribly wrong with this man other than the fact she couldn't mold him into something she wanted. When you told her she was whining like most American woman do (me included)....well, I just about drove off the road!!! I yelled "OMG!!!" But you are right. Right, right, right!!!!!! Little did you even know but I was having a bad day yesterday (tears involved, 'self-pity' tears mind you) but I HEARD you Dr. Laura, I heard you. But more important: I listened. If I didn't know better I would swear that caller was me yesterday, with the mood I was in. Although, I have never had anything I needed to call about. (Thank the Lord and my hubby too for that). And thanks to you, my husband will never have to know how horrible I was feeling, because frankly it was all a bunch of whining! And 'self pity' is so UN-attractive. Thanks.....I have to admit though that I only listen to you when in my car but wow, those few minutes have changed my mood on many occasions. Sometimes I yell back at you too. :-) Thanks, have a great day. D. P.S.: the guy before that caller who was working 70+ hrs and thought he needed to see a therapist, well....I do hope he slows down. You have to be good to yourself before you can be good to anyone else.
