Carolyn’s Tipz ~ Unapologetic (Listen while you read)
In our lives as humans there are times when enough is enough! Do we continue to suck the apple when the juice is no longer? Do we eat the meat when it has soured and gone rancid? Do we allow others to exhibit unacceptable behaviour without question?
These, and many other parallel parables, arise throughout our lifetime. There must be an end to all things; and this we say to you:
To remain in a condition that asks more of you than you are willing to give, must do harm. To allow others to consistently abuse your good nature, will surely do harm. It is likened to placing your arm in a pit of snakes; they will bite.
Yes, dear friends; would you place your arm in a pit of snakes? We hope your answer is no; indeed we do. However, were you to be allowing others to abuse, in any form; this can indeed be likened to placing your arm in a pit of snakes.
Think this over carefully, dear ones, and see if indeed you are doing this. If you are, in a figurative sense, placing your arm within a pit of snakes, we would suggest withdrawing your arm as quickly as possible. The snakes may not appreciate the withdrawal. However, dear heart:
Is your arm important to you? Or do you care more for the opinions and idiosyncrasies of snakes?

Good advice. 🙂
Indeed, Maverick; Thank You… 🙂
A great advice. Its better lo learn quickly rather than stay where there is no worth of it,
Well said, Moushmi.
Welcome; it is lovely to see you here! 🙂
Very well said Carolyn! 🙂 “To remain in a condition that asks more of you than you are willing to give, must do harm.” Word! 👍
Indeed, Lavanya; this applies to so many things in our lives, when we really contemplate it!
Lovely to see you… 🙂
Great advice, thnak you so much Carolyn for good sharing
And Thank You, Anita; for being you!
Lovely to know you… 🙂
you are very welcome dear
You’re speaking to me clearly. I play in the pit. For me it’s easier to just let the executor feel they have the power they think they need. I can take the posion for now. Your words however are true.
As long as you are in control of the poison, Kim, the effect would be minimised. Not nice, but, I know sometimes we have to ‘play the game’.
Hope it’s a short game! ❤
Uch, a snake pit.
Well, I have no time for you, as I am off to the alleys to find art.
Hey, I found some cool snake art, but that’s not a pit. I’ll show it when I have time. That will be my time, not snake time.
Love to you, Carolyn. xoxo
Good for you – Snake pits are for snakes!
Have a great time in the alleys. Here’s hoping you find lots of goodies to show us! ❤
I won’t be posting the snake art until Kids’ Month is over!
As an authorized curmudgeon, I can attest: snake handling is a necessary skill. But, in truth, they’re simple to handle, as, they can’t dance, having no shoes…. *grin*
I always thought J.R. “Billy Bob” Dobbs had the right attitude to cultivate, when he said “F*** ’em if they can’t take a joke.”
There will always be snakes, but, their ‘snakiness’ is the result of deliberate confusion, so, I figure it’s ‘just desserts’, & don’t worry my pretty head over them….
Good advice, for those who need it….
gigoid, the dubious
A snake handler, such as you, Ned, with shoes, and the ability to dance, has no need to worry ’bout confusion deliberately, or unintentionally created. Your dance steps would, in themselves, cause such snakes to ‘fog over’ to the extent they wouldn’t even know you’d waltzed in and around them. (Unless, and of course, your intention was of an overt waltz routine, purposefully and skillfully choreographed to bewilder said snake/s into oblivion!) A necessary accoutrement to good living… though, rarely needed! The skill, in itself, suffices. 😎
I bite back, Carolyn, as long as he doesn’t slip through my paws…MOL 😀 …but I think this goes deeper than that, right 😉 Pawkisses for a wonderful weekend my furriend 🙂 ❤
And to you, dear Binky, have a wonderful weekend. 😉
Take good care of Granny. Bite hard on those rascally snakes if one happens to come along. We know that Granny can ‘take care of herself’; but, having you there too, doubles the protection! 🙂
Hugs and Kisses ❤
Oh Carolyn! This line said it all for me: “To remain in a condition that asks more of you than you are willing to give, must do harm.” ~ Thank you again and again for reminding me of this. When this happens next time, I will back away and practice self-care xx
That is so good to hear, Christy. All the very best to you… 🙂
Powerful indeed. We must not and cannot allow anyone to direct our lives in any way. Very well written
Hear, hear, sweet Purva. I love how you embrace truth in all your understandings!
It is such a pleasure to know you. ❤
