Lots of people just aren't worth the time, is the conclusion I have come to. People that want to judge every little thing you do, I don't waste my
time on. So, fewer close friends, but the ones I have, I value, and they are long time, good friends.
The comments regarding your music are out of line. Discussing issues with the music, I could MAYBE see, if it was done nicely, but assuming that
liking a certain style determines your salvation is flat out stupid. As a Christian, I get completely irritated at people that act like that. I've
had some tell me MY music choices weren't right, too. I listen to all sorts of stuff, Christian music, rock (mostly 80's but plenty from other eras
as well), some hard rock, some techno, a few odds and ends from heavier stuff, some really mellow stuff, some oldies from several time periods; well,
you get the idea. Some people get it in their heads that if the lyrics aren't Christian, it's "evil". Stuff and nonsense to that! Songs are
about all sorts of things, and express all sorts of moods and emotions, and that's part of life.
Genetic makeup, well, heck, aren't most of us from a varied stock of ancestors? Mine are mostly European, though there is some Amerind blood in
there as well. Variety in that makes us all unique, and one bloodline isn't any better than another. We are all related, far enough back, anyway.
You sound like a successful business woman, and a good mom, and good for you being in shape! Anyone complaining about that sounds jealous, unless you
are really underweight. Happens, but I suspect jealousy is the cause for the comments you get. I wish I was smaller; I can tell you that! Working
on it, but it's easier your way, staying in shape.
Home schooling, I do myself, and that's a wonderful thing. You care enough to devote the tie and energy to your kids. And, they are YOUR kids, and
it's your decision. People should respect that.
Tattoos? I don't have any, but I can't think of anything I'd want to have for the rest of my life. My tastes change over the years too much.
Those that have them; it's their skin. I have seen some really nice ones, too. Some on church members.
Don't sweat people that can only feel good about themselves by tearing others down.
