Am I the good guy or the bad guy

Reliable friend or fearless foe

Should I say what you want to hear

Or should I speak what you need to hear


Dispassionate to the core

I have nothing to gain or lose

Damned if I do, Damned if I don't

Is a friend in need truly a friend indeed


Sigmund Freud's twin sister I'm not

I share to care and not to despair

I sit at my desk and dodge bullets

For a crime I did not commit


Regardless I will wait attentively

Body armor protecting me

For I will not be drained of compassion

For a friend in need of understanding

"Damned if I do, Damned if I don't"

That statement alone seems to describe most friendships and relationships, though they continue and nurture themselves with each problem...(love your picture on your bio page)Peace, Ed & Rufuz

Never try to please everyone at your expence, or one gets walked over.
Gotta be a gentle Tiger. Ones health must come first..

It is often hard to know what is for the best. The old saying "can't please everyone so you have to please yourself" doesn't apply if to please yourself you seek the blessing or approval of others. I think your art in words speaks for itself though Anne and that is what is important.

You deserve to be here; I am sorry you are having problems here. I pray they end soon for you! But you NEED to be here; don't let those who bring you down get to you; I haven't, and I won't! I will be here as long as God will let me be!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

Thnx Anne, and this is so true too. Before I came to AD, I was actually alone, even tho my "family" was here. I am alone in my quest to achieve my final goal, to be the woman physically, I have always been in my soul. Your words that end this compassionate piece are the words I live by for my friends, a person in need of a shoulder, or an ear to bend; "For I will not be drained of compassion
For a friend in need of understanding." These are very powerful words Anne, and maybe someday the rest of the world will cath on. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & (((HUGS))), Barbie
