“I Dislike To Appear As An Apologist For An Act Of My Own I KNOW Was RIGHT.” — ABRAHAM LINCOLN

ABRAHAM LINCOLNOUR 16TH PRESIDENT Of The UNITED STATES Of AMERICA, Serving From MARCH 1861 To APRIL 1865

… … … … … … … … … … … … … … … …

This Quote, To Me, Is A Standout.

There Have Been Many MANY Moments In My Life…

…Where I KNOW For A FACT I Did The Right Thing.

There Was No Question…

…Nor Doubt…

…At Least To ME…

…That What Honestly HAD To HAPPEN…

…DID HAPPEN.

Some Of Them Were Grandly WONDROUS.

Some Of Them Were Horridly PAINFUL.

But The CORRECT CHOICE Was Made…

…Based On What I Had To Go On.

Hindsight Can Be 20/20…

…And IS The Bulk Of The Time.

Hindsight Can ALSO Be Skewed…

…Blurred…

…Half-Noticed…

…Half-Remembered…

…etc…

…etc…

…Or Altogether INCORRECT.

I’ve Gone From Being A Man Who Was…

…TOTALLY…

…UTTERLY…

…UNAPOLOGETIC…

…To Being A Man Who…

…A Lot Of The Time…

…Has His Apology Ready And Waiting…

…Knowing Good And Hell Well SOMEONE Will Find SOME-FAULT In Whatever It Is I’ve Just Done.

Good Or Bad…

…Right Or Wrong…

…That’s How It Currently Stands.

And I…

…In ALL Sincerity…

…Honestly…

…Truly…

…HATE HATE HATE…

…To Apologize.

I Don’t Get Warm Feelings When I Rectify A Situation With An Apology.

I Get Feelings Of Having Just Admitted Defeat.

And It REALLY REALLY Pisses Me Off.

I’m A Perpetual Loser…

…But I’ve NEVER Grown Used To It.

And I…

…Honestly…

…Truly…

…Hopefully…

…Never Ever Will.

Never Never Ever Never Never.

At Least When I’m Pissed…

…I’m Also VERY SURE…

…I’m VERY MUCH…

…ALIVE!!!

Pick Your Own Battles (whenever possible), People.

Or Your Battles WILL Pick YOU.

Just Sayin’…

  1. You can’t be too much of a loser if you can quote Lincoln and maintain a blog.

    And yeah, I totally understand about apologizing when you were right. I am the sameway. Currently there is a false rumor going on about me that no one has outright asked me about, but I absolutely REFUSE to try to deny, explain or apologize for something I did not do. Because people will believe what they want to believe.

    I also have great respect for people who stand their ground when they know they are right. That takes courage.

    • The Blog Is About The Only Thing I Do Well.
      I’m One Of Those Who’s Pretty Right-On When It Comes To Things Of That Nature…
      …And Am Wretched At The Simple, Everyday Type Things Everyone Around Me Seems To Do Without Missing A Beat.
      The Blog TOTALLY Fits My Personality.
      It’s Creative AND VERY Random.
      When Told To “Come Up With SOMETHING And Make It Work” I (for the most part) Succeed.
      When Told “Watch Me Do This, And Then You Do It 1000 Times Before Your Shift Ends” I Fail So So SO HORRIDLY.
      I Suppose I Use The Term “Perpetual-Loser” Because That’s How It Always Feels.
      My Blog Has Become My Mental/Emotional SAVIOR These Past Few Months.

      I VERY MUCH Appreciate Your Comment, Ma’am.
      And THANK YOU For Being So Honest With Me In Regard To Our Current Subject.

      And YES…
      …People Will ALWAYS Believe Whatever They Want.
      And I TOO Have The Utmost Respect For Those Who Don’t Back Down UNLESS They KNOW It’s The RIGHT THING To Do.
      And I Respect Those Who DO Back Down In Those Instances. That Takes Just As Much Courage. Admitting AND Accepting You’re Wrong Is IMPOSSIBLE For So SO Many People.

      Take Care, Please.
      And Thanks Again For The Comment. 🙂
