    I never make mistakes, but I'm sure I'll happily admit it if I ever do.

    I'd like to think that I would be man enough to admit to making a mistake.

    You need to give it a rest. Life is short. Just remember the good times.

    I can't rest when someone I care about gets screwed. I'm the guy a good friend can call at 3am to get on a plane. F that guy! He's got no morals and no balls!

    How's that for arrest? (no pun intended)

    I thought I made a mistake once, but I was wrong.

    Seriously though, I admit when I make mistakes all the time, sometimes I explain the
    logic behind my mistake, and sometimes I say I just plain f*cked up, sue me or shoot me.

    Darth: my PROBLEM is I had a large contingent of 'good' friends that, over the last 40 years, always call ME first for help:
    to bail them out of jail (DUI's), bring them gas, a pump-jack to change a tire on the freeway
    at 3am when it's snowing, fix a toilet, give them a ride somewhere 200 miles away, you name it, but if I need help,
    funny how most of these guys are nowhere to be found... when I went thru my divorce, ONE was around to just listen.

    Consequently, my 'large contingent of good friends list' has been cut down to about five, from about fifty....

    At 76, I have made lots of mistakes. It is best to admit them to yourself
    and try to learn from them so as to not make the same mistake again.

    It's more like me choosing to 'cut bait' with a lot of 'friends' that are just 'users' that
    take advantage of my good nature - mine and a lot of others.
    So yes, 'age' - learning to 'drop' people that drag a person down.

    Didn't mean anything insulting. It means we got old. The older we got, the less true friends we will have. Those fake ass will show true colors as time goes on

    Mine was just stupidity from early on, not just recently.

    Maybe I just chose to look the other way when I was ignored so much, I kept
    thinking people would 'come around' and figure out what a good resource
    they had (me) that they were squandering, it just took me 40 years to figure
    out these folks were never going to change.

    Most are still around, but I just stopped keeping in contact with them 10 years ago,
    it took me that long to realize (most) people never change. And none of them have
    tried to contact me in the meantime. I must be a rotten guy, LOL

    ANYWAY, Life is good, I have a few good friends - those that have always
    been around, kept in touch, I can't complain, but it seems like half of them
    are now in damned Arizona... LOL

    IMO the most important resource in existence is not oil, gold, cash, it's friendships,
    you can get thru anything with those, people just don't realize that.
