Elizabeth Bennett's Page

Hi! Thanks for stopping by!

I am Elizabeth Bennett and I was born and raised in South Carolina. I grew up and lived there until my mid 30's when I moved to Los Angeles for four years. Recently, I returned to South Carolina due to the bad economy and to keep an eye on my elderly mother.

I was bullied for 27 years and that is why I am so passionate about this cause. Believe me, I know the damage this can do to a person which is why I call this Peer Abuse.

I never married or had children. Now Mr. Right could still come along, who knows. I have always focused on my career instead. Even though I like children, I do not think I could be a good mother.

I am a mother in a sense to my cat Popcat. He is an orange and white tabby cat and is a tad overweight. We are trying to cut down on his food intake as food to him is like a pacifer is to a baby. This cat is so much like a child and is quirky. For example, he tries to climb into the washing machine and dryer. Also, will take about five pieces of Pounce treats and line them up in a row. He has a lot of personality and I love him to bits.

I use to play the piano and cello as a child. However, I never felt I was any good at them. I love music though and enjoy most any that is out there. Except for country; I have never liked that style of music. Old school stuff is good.

My sense of humor is good. I enjoy sarcasm a lot. As long as it is not hurtful its good. The MTV character Daria that was popular in the late 1990's was hysterical. Some may see her as a smart aleck but I liked her. She just made me laugh. My friends say I can be funny. I usually make them laugh.

I am a bear collector and have been since 1974 when I got my first bear. It belonged to a lady who taught school with my mother and she did not want it anymore so she gave it to me. Now, I have probably over 100 stuffed bears along with bear clothes, jewelry, rugs, posters, figurines, pictures and other odds and ends. I also collect keychains and everywhere I go to visit, I generally purchase one. Oh and the requisite tee shirt too!

Traveling is great. I have been to countries such as Canada, Mexico, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Israel and hope to visit more in my lifetime. I would love to go to Italy next. I love Italian food!

I never knew my paternal grandmother and that bothers me. I have been told we are very much alike.

I am a Christian but am tolerant of others beliefs and religions. I have friends from different backgrounds. They do not slam me for my beliefs nor do I slam them for theirs. We get along great that way. I am spiritual too. Plus, I love helping people. I cannot save the world but I can try to make it a better place.

Take Care,
Elizabeth

Hi Elizabeth,

I've had my Realtor license for about 3 years now but have been active for 2. I love what I do and right now in Arizona it's an incredible time to buy.

Stay in touch.

Hi Elizabeth.. thank you so much for the warm welcome. I found your page and read your profile, but wasn't able to figure out what your business was. I apologize but I am trying to figure out this website. I've had many 'hello's... so it's definitely warm and inviting, which I like very much. I enjoyed your profile, sorry you had to experience what you did... but you sound like such a wonderful solid person, who has learned and grown. Way to go ! Keep in touch, ok?

Dr. Phil and that bully

This week has been quite interesting. However, what grabbed my attention and kept it was the recent two part episode of Dr. Phil entitled Bullies Beware. The viewers got to spend the first part with a self-professed bully. The second episode gave us a 13-year-old young man who was abused by peers in elementary school. He became an abuser by middle school. The kid was quite honest; he said he enjoyed the power that came with being an abuser as it was a rush. He even stated that “he was addicted…See More

Society lacking Social Empathy

I work daily online and talk to many people from different places in the world. Facebook is a very active place to go and interact with others. I do a lot of reading and observing as well. As the internet brings the world together, it’s not uncommon to talk to someone in the U.K or in the Ukraine all in the same day. The cultural differences are evident in these posts that I read. However, one constant remains the same and that is social exclusion and lack of social empathy. I am not targeting…See More
