Quoting Quiverfull: Recipe For Misery?

Quoting Quiverfull: Recipe For Misery? August 18, 2013

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubes – How to be Perfectly Miserable

(Editor’s note: This is a continued theme from yesterday’s Quoting Quiverfull)

Further thoughts on my post below:

HOW TO BE PERFECTLY MISERABLE
(This recipe is guaranteed infallible).

Think about yourself,
Talk about yourself,
Use “I” as often as possible,
Mirror yourself continually in the opinion of others,
Listen greedily to what people say about you,
Expect to be appreciated,
Be suspicious,
Be jealous and envious,
Be sensitive to slights,
Never forgive a criticism,
Trust nobody but yourself,
Insist on consideration and respect,
Demand agreement with your own views on everything,
Sulk If people are not grateful to you for favors shown,
Never forget a service you may have rendered,
Be on the outlook for a good time for yourself,
Shirk your duties if you can,
Do as little as possible for others,
Love yourself supremely,
Be selfish!
