Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
Be grateful for what you have and stop complaining -- it bores everybody else, does you no good, and doesn't solve any problems.
-- Zig Zigler
With all that gamut of erupting expression
whining person may be a true pain in the butt
turning each conversation into a shrink's session
they make you wonder what a heck to do with that nut.
If you have to deal with one you know what I mean
as the more you try to ignore the worse it comes
it's impossible to reason with a drama queen
sounding like high pitched violin, or drums.
They differ from depressives who don't talk much
I tend to always see them more on hysterical side
displaying a lot of emotion in whatever they touch
sounding like open book without anything to hide.
When they miss attention coming in form of praise
they try to be more noticed like one to be pitied
so they are playing victim and it usually pays
and it oftentimes gets worse if not treated.
Have you ever tried to apply praises
sincere or not -- it won't matter one bit
sometimes that helps with such crazes
when ignoring doesn't work -- try to outwit.
When they start their crap tell them they look good
ask them if they have lost any of that extra weight
or even go as far as to praise their good mood
then see if they show signs of biting the bait.
Selling them their image of someone O.K.
flattered -- they may try to live up to that crap
well, they may still have, as usual, plenty to say
but now it will be re-packed in more bearable wrap.
