I was just going to comment back on the actual related blog post (by the way, are you reading the comments? They really are the best part of this blog) and leave it at that, but in the middle of my reply, I got mad. Double-You-Tee-Eff, McGraw? How is telling the world that the model for dealing with crap in your life is to never feel sorry for yourself and maybe just hang out with Robin McGraw on the Speakers Panel of Perfection going to help ANYONE?? I'm so tiffed I'm not even going to go back and fix the sentence structure of that statement. Stupid Phil, ruining the integrity of my blog...
I don't think Jennifer Rothschild ever said she never complained about her situation. Maybe she did, but I doubt it. I think Phil is just really bad at television segues and talking to people who are going through hard times. Wait, what's he famous for again?
The thing that makes me mad is that that's a harmful statement to make. According to "The Doc" (I use the term affectionately, of course) if you're having a hard time dealing with something, you're already screwing it up. Nice. That's like telling a baby, learning to walk, that walkers don't ever fall down. First, it's 100% unhelpful, and secondly, it's completely untrue.
Ugh... I'm done thinking about it. I'm so over you, Baldy McMustache, and I wasn't even under you.
