I am told character is an amazing thing. If one of you has seen it, will you please mail it to me? With my broadband connection, I will be able to download and see it for myself.

Today`s post is about character. Many say I am like the sun – liked by all. Just that I lack the warmth. So expect me to be harsh here. If you don`t like my opinion of you, you could always improve yourself.

You probably telling yourself: “Ah well, nobody cares if I live or die, so why should I change myself just because some old-Jammy is asking me to.”

Just trying missing that ICCI loan installment and the LIC premium that are due this month, and you would know if people care about you. The last time I missed the two, I had to answer 17 calls from four executives.

We all love people with good character. Our parents have always asked us to mingle with the right person at school. As for my parents, they even found a friend for me when I was in class two. How sweet of them.

Things change when you mature and learn the ways of the World. For starters, we start understanding people. Sometimes we understand them so well…that we don`t speak to them for decades.

Perhaps, for all of us an agreeable person is somebody who agrees with us.

Somebody who doesn`t understand us is always the negative guy in the picture – one who should be visiting a psychiatrist. I had once asked a non-agreeable person to go meet a psychiatrist.

“So how was the trip? Was he any good?” I asked

“Now I am very positive. Before meeting him I was not sure if I had a problem, now I am pretty positive that I have issues to be sorted out.” He said.

If you are upset that after reading this article, you have been exposed to yourself as a character-less being…don`t worry. You are not alone.

I know this family where a 14-year-old girl in the family smokes pot at the dining table. I wouldn`t really mind her doing that…but what upsets me is the fact that she does it in front of her two kids. Obnoxious.
