What you do think of people who complain that they are in quite dire straits or are struggling


socioeconomically yet they continue to perform actions that keep them in such dire socioeconomic straits? For example,people who make a small salary yet purchase houses that are beyond their abililty to pay and their house is foreclosed.Those who overspend themselves into debt /bankruptcy.Others who insanely and prolifically reproduce although they cannot provide for the children they already have.Something is amiss with such people.As the Southerners say, bless their hearts. New Yorkers say something else,they are DAMFs.

    Rxcellent answer as usual. There are many people who complain aimlessly about their situation. It nonplusses me how they complain yet continue to do the same inane thing that put them in that situation.What happened to the concept of responsibility?

    Yes, there are extentuating circumstances; however, for many people, they refuse to simply assess the situation and to take personal accountability and responsibility for their actions.They are quick to blame outside circumstances,never themselves.

    Lisa, well said. This is true no matter how well off you may think another is. People make mistakes - big mistakes. I know I have, my child has, we all have. Sometimes we're just plain lucky that our mistakes didn't coincide with disaster.

    I don't know about that; I know some people who I don't think will ever change and will go from one disaster to the next and never take responsibility for their actions. Realising their mistake won't happen because they blame everyone else.
