What Others think...

The Pastor's Ass
The pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won.
The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the raceagain, and it won again.
The local paper read:
PASTOR'S ASS OUT FRONT.
The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in another race.
The next day, the local paper headlineread:
BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR'S ASS.
This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get rid of the donkey.
The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent.
The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline thenext day:
NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN.
The bishop fainted.
He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey,
so she sold it to a farmer for $10.
The next day the paper read:
NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10.
This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild.
The next day the headlines read:
NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE.
The bishop was buried the next day.
I had to post that story, I care to much what my loved ones think at times, I have friends who are even worse than I am. But reading that just made me realize...you have to please yourself and your god. Only person who can judge me is my savior. No one else. So why should I care. I am not saying go out and be a brat, and do rude things. But when It is something you are okay with do not get so focused on trying to please others.
Basically
The moral of the story is being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery .even shorten your life.
So be yourself and enjoy life.
Stop worrying about everyone else's ass and you'll be a lot happier and live longer!
Have a nice day
Hugs

Thank you for the comment Claire. I just wanted to clarify you do not mean the one Georgia is doing do you? I am doing with with a friend as well at Two Friends, Two Pictures. But the one that Gerogia is doing is with Jamie at UmbrellaBlog. I just did not want to take credit that was not mine. I hope you will still read anyways. =)
