I'm new to posting my thoughts and feelings on an electronic 'bulletin' board for the world to see but I feel the joy and pain of other Virgos like myself. I'm definitely learning that as Virgos we're all coping with similar issues. Also I have found some valuable information on coping with the stress of being a Virgo who others find hard to understand. I've been divorced now for three years after +20 years of marriage. The thing that stands out in my mind is that my ex-wife would always criticize me with the expression "You think too much!" But that wasn't the cause of its failure. I was married, devoted to my family as most Virgos are the only thing was she acted as if she wasn't married!
Now I'm learning to except who I am and not try to change because it can't be done. That's the whole point of existence - learning to live with who you are and enjoy being yourself regardless. I do have to employ some coping skills so as not sound like a "know-it-all" I try to begin my comments with - "In my opinion..." or "It has been said that..." Sometimes it even works to diffuse a situation.
