Oh, me too. This is why I suggest just have faith in some things and stop worrying about it. Think about it...what is the practical difference between an "assumption" which is "potentially open to criticism" but which, in actual fact, never gets crtiqued and an article of faith? Both are cause of behavior which doesn't change. The former seems a little hypocritical to a obese person who keeps saying "I can go on a diet anytime I want to, I'm just waiting until after Thanksgiving".

Give it up already! Be happy with who you are. Give it your best think and then just accept some things, on faith. Then, as you say, "go out and live a little".

Exactly my point, Jake...Exactly. A little faith gives us the time to smell the freshness of spring. [deep breath] Isn't it inspiring?
