Opinions expressed on CANDo Life Skills are often VERY opinionated and I would ask that you please accept my apologies if I have offended you with anything I say. I understand that there are always exceptions to the rule and “special” circumstances – people unable to do things for medical or psychological reasons. What I am also well aware of however, is that some people have forgotten that they are the ones in control of their life or simply find it convenient to “use” the suffering of the exceptions to the rule as an excuse not do to things themselves (and those people will know who they are). Any straight talking is designed to spur activity and any comments and opinions are given generally and not intended for those that have exceptional circumstances. Please be aware of this if you have taken offence.
