I learned two great truths this week.
“You don’t have bad luck. The reason bad things happen to you is because you’re a dumbass.”
One of the (many) problems with stupid people is that they do not fully appreciate just how colossally stupid they are. This make sense as it would involve a bit of self-analysis and some basic thinking.
This epiphany was followed by the second truth I learned this week.
“Sometimes you have to give up on people, not because you don’t care… but because they don’t.”
This one is particularly sad since it presumes you once cared enough about the person to get involved and try to help. At one point, you realize that of the two of you, you are the only one expending any effort. Often, it takes a long time to come to that point.
Which leads, I suppose, to the third truth I learned this week…
“Hope can be a terrible thing.”
Lessons learned the hard way.
