I have been told recently that because I am a silly person I can not be taken seriously and lead a discussion on a book. I feel that regardless of how silly I am I can read and hold an intellectual conversation. Should I...

Life is too short to try to be more than one person for the sake of an idiot. Always be you!

What a self righteous, pig headed, fool!
Shame on him!!! Glad you quit that group!
No one should put up with that kind of negativity. Those people love to drag others down with them.

Don't even think about changing. You can easily be silly and intellectual. I do it, other users do it.

I know from your WTF Friday polls that you are a very fun silly person, however that does not mean that you are not serious when the occasion calls for you to be. Don't let the haters get you down :P

You never let anyone even suggest that you change you.

You're giving this guy power, letting him control your emotions, and contemplating changing who you are. Ask yourself if he is that important.

I feel sorry for that man's poor wife how he must treat her in private makes me cringe. Let him stay home with little kids and see how he likes it. No sense of humor. How sad.

Whoever told you this is so full of it that I don't even know what to say! I'm a super silly person AND I can lead any intellectual conversation you want to have as long as it isn't about super scientific stuff, science was not my forte in school

And don't even think about changing for anybody, you're amazing, end of story.

Always stay you, no matter what. If someone can't accept you for the gem you are, then it's their loss, and you don't need to surround yourself with people like that! You're wonderful just the way you are.

Stay you, stay silly, and yes, you could lead a discussion on a book. Sometimes people who see themselves as intellectuals, or aspire to become one, forget it's a little silliness now and then that makes life fun.

I tend to think silly before I think serious.

Unfortunately, not everyone can be as serious as I.

Since you are a nice person, make a change. Here is what you do, at the next meeting, shank the biggest one with a sharpened toothbrush. Then spit on them and tell them you'll never change.

I never knew he felt this way until tonight. He wouldn't have a problem with my husband leading but I guess he's smarter then me. He said that I was at risk for ruining people's souls. Who says that to someone

Did they not see your SOHOA presentation? Because I did, you can be professional and serious when the need arises. They are complete idiots.

My home group leader. I volunteered to lead a book study and he said that I am like the class clown who only talks about what's current in pop culture (which is bs I don't know what's happening in pop culture I'm addicted to Netflix)

Jesus loves a cheerful giver. I think He likes other people that are cheerful too. People like that are part of the reason I don't go to church all that much anymore. I think you're just fine and dandy. I was told because I was fat I wasn't listening

To the Holy Spirit. That I lacked self-control. Frankly when you have a house full of children you need a sense of humor to survive. It sure beats child abuse. I'm sending you my love I'm sending him a kick in the derrière.

Thank you sweetheart you give that baby of great big birthday kiss from me too. I would not disown my son when he came out of the closet. Some people give me dirty looks about that. I am no longer a cookie-cutter Christian. I think for myself now.

At least 75% of the time I'm not being serious. Wouldn't change that anyways for anything. I am who I am and that's that.
