Tragic Flaw

  I read a Shakespeare poem in high school that talked about tragic flaws. Everyone has a flaw, a tragic weakness, that if exploited would result in that persons downfall.
  Me I am too nice. I would give, and give, without asking for anything in return. That is my tragic flaw. What's so tragic about it you may ask? Well I hate to make people mad. When I hurt someones feelings I am hurt too. I don't know what it is but I can tune into the feelings of others and feel what they are feeling. So I give and give, and people take advantage of that. It's got me in a jam a time or two. Bad relationships, unwanted house-guests,
hurting for money, jobless, and that's just to name a few.
  How do we change these bad habits? Well that's why we call them tragic. Its built into our subconscious. I guess if you could beat the word no in your head a few times you may learn, but I wouldn't bank on it. Its hard to change a habit.
  Nice guys really do finish last, just to let you know.

Marriages

  So many broken families anymore. Every time you turn around there is another divorce, or separation. Why can't we all just get along?
  In the olden days, when you got married you were in it for life. Now it seems that we spend our lives trying to find a marriage that will last.
  At my work it is common for a guy to talk about his child support payments. Really this is crazy. Do we need to spend ten years together before we get married or something? I just saw last night that a friend of mine is having marital problems now. It kinda hit me by surprise, cause last I heard him and his wife were doing fine. 
  My wife and I fight a lot more then we use to, but I think a lot of that is cause we both suffer from depression. Her more then me I think. Among other things LOL.

Free stuff.

  What ever happened to all the free stuff. Did it disappear or am I just not looking in the right place. I use to be able to find all kinds of free software on the net. Now its just  bunch of demos. That's just what I want to do; play a game long enough to get hooked only to have it stop and tell me I need to buy it. Yuck. I don't about anyone else but that's really annoying.
  There is one site that offers a free program every day. Free Downloads Center I check in there just about every day to see what twenty dollar program the are offering for free.
  Free music? Ha! The only free music you can download is by band that few people have heard of, unless you want to risk downloading torrent files and acquiring your music through a peer to peer program like Bit Torrent.
There is always You Tube, but they are video's, you would need to download them, and convert them into a mp3 file.
  I guess where there is a will, there is a way. If you dig deep enough on the net you may find what you are looking for, but good luck. You may want to grab a snickers, cause your not going anywhere for awhile.
