protect youself,live long enough
« on: December 15, 2009, 01:47:55 PM »
was scrolling some profiles,there was this cartoon ad for safe sex,enjoyed watching it but the ending was annoying.at the very end it displays : "protect yourself,live long enough to find the right person". i agree that safe must be promoted,but as a pozie i find that kind off messages quiet "insensetive" and very intimidating. makes me depressed that i wasnt protceting myslef at some stage.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things i can not change.

Hey Sensual   :)

        I do hope you are not dwelling on this !

       Most of us know how you feel !

       But  the advertisers  do NOT wish to make  " US "  feel bad , they are trying to stop a virus

      from  spreading !

      I also find adds that overlook  OUR  feeling very depressing , and at this time of  year

      WE  do not need to feel that it is our fault ! 

                                   I hope you are cheering up !

                                     Life will go on ...............

                                       Be well ,  Carl   
" Live and let Live "
