Unless you have formed a relationship with a pet, you will never understand what a pet lover goes through when they are faced with the loss of a pet whether by death or not being allowed to keep a pet in an unwelcome environment such as a nursing home or rental unit.
When I was younger, I didn’t form close bonds to animals, but as I have gotten older I’ve learned the value of a pet because pets can be so intuitive and be more demonstrative than people, often providing a sense of well being for whatever reason.
I’m probably going to upset the apple cart with this, but I’m not much of an “Oprah disciple.” Then again, I’m just not much for TV talk show hosts. Maybe it’s all gotten a little too sensational for me. Whatever the case, I tend to shy away from those TV folks trying to give me advice and tell me how to live my life. I figure I have better resources right here if and when I need them.
Question: I let some guy talk me into taking some of my money out of the bank and putting it in his investment program. I have not really kept up with how it’s done. I’m not really sure what I have or if this guy is on the up and up. Suggestions?
Answer: Two words: take responsibility.
Your problems began when you “let somebody talk you into…” anything. Never give in because somebody wears you down with their sales pitch.
And you don’t keep up with it?
And you don’t know how it’s doing?
And you aren’t even sure if the person handling your money is honest?
