Ok one of the worst things to be made fun of is the way you laugh. Seriously, you're going to make fun of the way I portray happiness? Thanks, asshole. This happens to me occasionally and not much can dig into me like making fun of my laugh. Usually it's a group of guys who will hear me laugh and then mock me for laughing. That is some fucking ridiculous shit.
How about another option of ‘training up’. Instead of setting a direction for them and looking at performance, focus on virtues. Reward them for speaking from their heart, keeping their word, practicing kindness, listening to their inner knowing of right and wrong, being charitable, having the courage to face new things… and being able to withstand a change of circumstances. --Ida Lawrence, Contributor Waking Times
