    GOLD! I've Read UNSCRIPTED!

    I finished this. Good book. I can relate to the separating friendships thing. One can only speculate on how those certain old relationships could have dragged you down.

    Composure in confrontational situations

    This is also good advice. Another mindset change challenge. A book which I haven't read but I imagine would be good for this mindset change is "the art of not giving a f*ck". Sounds like just the ticket. On the other hand, those who don't care often perform poorly. So perhaps it isn't...

    Composure in confrontational situations

    Thank you all for your comments. Many people seem to be recommending a martial arts of sorts. So I will need to look into that. I would like to reiterate that I have never been in a physical confrontation in this job. And if it ever happens, I have failed so spectacularly that I probably would...

    Composure in confrontational situations

    For my slowlane job, I'm not a cop, but I deal with similar stresses. Let's just say that most days I have to break very bad news to people. I am a messenger. Some people take it well, others get very angry, at me. Sometimes I can handle it calmly. Other times I become very intimidated, start to...

    And that is something for which I am so very grateful.

    OFF-TOPIC Losing friendships

    I get where you're coming from with the family. All of my cousins are doing much better than I in the career department. Everyone questions what I'm doing next, what they're really asking is when I'm going to get on their level. Thank you for the comment. Very insightful and positive. People...

    OFF-TOPIC Losing friendships

    OFF-TOPIC Losing friendships

    I have few friends. Remnants from childhood and school. I seem to be losing them. One gets a girlfriend and stops communicating. The other moves away and stops communicating. The other is willing to play video games, but not much else (I generally stopped playing them, but didn't think I would...

    WEB/DIGITAL Wordpress/Website Owners - Are attacks common?

    V8Bill, thanks for offering to help me. I installed Wordfence and it seems like a great plugin. I'll play around with it more and see if I can move the login page. While my username is not admin, I didn't take this into account. Thanks for pointing that out. Good to know that these types of...

    WEB/DIGITAL Wordpress/Website Owners - Are attacks common?

    Thank you all for your replies and advice. Bill, I did try Sucuri Security check, and they say nothing is wrong with the site. But they're the ones that keep telling me about changes at 2AM made to my site/core files. So I'm not sure what the changes are or what to believe. I'm going to try...

    WEB/DIGITAL Wordpress/Website Owners - Are attacks common?

    I've built a wordpress site. It's only been up for 2 weeks and probably has no visitors. This is fine because I just wanted to try it and learn, make some mistakes, etc. So the site has been up for 2 weeks, and I've had hundreds of brute force attacks and modifications to the 4 core integrity...

    The worst that can happen.

    During high school and college I created little value, which is why I am where I am today (slowlane). The only thing I have to show for that period is good times with friends. I do value those memories. I did have fun. However, now, my friends have all moved or moved on. So I have little excuse...

    Be in the business of "home runs"...

    MJ, thanks for the thread to answer my question. You and Yoda's explanations definitely help/supplement my interpretation.
