The purpose of this blog is to promote my book:

"What Type of Character Are You Hanging Hanging Out With?"

The contents of the blog is an overview of the book.

Have you experienced thinking that you knew someone so well and then one day to your utter surprise - boom, transformation? 

You found yourself asking the person - "who are you?"

When the person that you're in a relationship with turns out to be a wolf in sheep's clothing, it can change your life forever. 

I know because it changed mine.

Let's get started!

Words such as: sheep, wolf, and wolves are used as metaphors.

Sheep - represents a person that is genuine, naive, trusting and revealing.

Wolf - represents a person with a watchful nature; someone knowledgeable of the nature of sheep; a master of intrigue and disguise; a predator that waits for the perfect opportunity to prey on its victims and someone that violates your most sacred trust.

Part one!

From birth, through out the teen years, we are endowed with the riches of parent’s do's and don'ts of life. By the time we are ready to venture out and explore  the world we have imagined and created our own venturesome philosophy.

I'm going to do it my way!

Now, let me ask you a question:

Would you agree that someone sharing their life experience could shed light on a path that you have yet to venture down and provide you with a perspective you hadn't considered?

Ever heard the saying "Two heads are better than one?"

Granted you can still live your life doing it your way but do you lose anything by having a willingness to stand still and hear someone else's point of view?

You neither have to concur with what you hear or adapt it as your own; but, you might walk away with knowledge you hadn't considered.
Light bulb!

Do I have your attention? I hope so. Prepare to awaken!  Let’s begin with a discussion question.

While out there doing it your way, have you experienced thinking you knew someone so well, but to your amazement they turned out to be a nightmare from hell?

How did their transformation cause you to feel? How did it affect you?

Think about it then join me for part two!




  1. Betty, as a follower of your blog I get automatically notice of all your fresh updates. Then I took cognizance thereof in time to come and be the first commentator. It's your blog across borders, right? My whole appreciation.
    Most of what you say is applicable to anyone, however stated so naturally from a female's viewpoint, yours in fact.
    I've learned for myself how stinky poop is early enough, when my nose could as it were tell poop from poop by the degree of stinkiness.
    My nose has also experienced otherwise, on my own I learned to tell flower from flower, girl from girl, girl from flower and all combinations.
    The wolf disguised in lamb is sure to step in and I have been too slow to spot each no matter how poorly disguised. And I've certainly been myself that wolf, hungry enough, on many an occasion.
    I'm convinced the stuff you write will be of use in practice to many a reader. And I wish you the best rewards for your efforts.

  2. Thank you for following my blog, Joao!

    I appreciate your openness regarding your own experiences; honesty is a virtuous accomplishment!

    Thank you for your best wishes for me!

    Tossing It Out

    1. Most likely.

      All types of lessons do come our way and the teacher can sometimes be a wolf.
