WARNING: This is probably one of those rants that some of you may read and say, “Oh, God. Shut up.” Or, “Wow, I see that too.” Or, (hopefully) “Damn. I’ve gotta’ stop with the b.s.”
FYI, B.S.=Bullshit, not beauty school or butt scratchers.
Here are a few words of advice from a kid who probably doesn’t have too much of a “say” in your life, but here they are anyway.
On my way home from work today (the long, tough, death-sentence-of-a-ride-home-cause-LA-traffic-sucks), I had quite a bit of time to think. What did I think about? Well, as I’ve stated before, I’m a people watcher. I’ve noticed a lot of people blame others for their own mistakes. They play the victim, when in fact, they are the ones who caused the problem in the first place. I’ve met quite a lot of “fake” people. Which is why the people I call “friends” is a very small group. I’d rather keep it that way. Now, some may say, “You’re just anti social.” or “You’re weird.” (That’s my favorite). Truth is, I don’t waste time on people who don’t have the guts to admit when they’re wrong. If you fucked up, you fucked up. Don’t sit there and blame others for your bullshit. Grow up. Deep down inside, you know where the fault falls. Think about it. Is it your fault? Be an adult, grow some courage, say you’re wrong and stop lying to yourself and others. You are no better than the person sitting next to you. Acting like you are and blaming someone else for your pain is an act of cowardice. The greatest act. The world is full of cowards, snakes, thieves and backstabbers and it’s sad to see people put on a front and wear a mask. Get over yourself and get real. The world will appreciate it and so will you friends/family.
“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody!”-Rocky Balboa
I was born with a gift (not really). I can smell bullshit a mile away. I can see through people like a window. I can sense when you’re lying. I can see through your fake-ness and see the mask you wear. Remove that mask, cut the crap and live your life the honest way. Trust me, you’ll feel a lot better. Happier. The “woe-is-me” act is overrated. BS is overrated.
I wish you way more than luck on your path to redemption.
