hey that's not fair. whydo you want to hurt my feelings? peple forget that am a human being andthat i have feelngs.
OMG - I can't believe I was talking about my feelings there. What was I drinking?
Whahaha, that was such a North American thing to say!!!! Why is it so bad to talk about our feelings? I read an article about this phenomenon in a leftist newspaper, a Hungarian guy wrote it who moved to the USA and he noticed the cultural differences hard.... you know in some East European countries people in some historical times were so downtrodden they kinda embraced being miserable and depressed and honed it to an art
You know turned being pessimistic, negative and emotional into a virtue..... (probably that's why i laugh uncontrollably sometimes for hours when i get drunk, because i repress the natural happiness that's in every human being :P ) In North America on the other hand they took positive thinking to the other extreme, you always have to be positive and show you're strong. If you show any weakness or negative emotion people write you off and drop you..... if you want to whine and get rid of your sadness you go to a psychologist and can get rid of your negativity for money
The journalist told a story in the same article, an American couple got his and his wife's Hungarian mentality and went to them from time to time for the same purpose, to be able to talk about their problems without being judged .......... Well, different places different cultures
