A Troubling Trend
Over the past several years, I have noticed more and more people are out for themselves. They create their own drama, crawling to you asking for help (help = money), they suck everything they can from you, then kick you to the curb when your assistance is no longer needed. But as soon as they are down on their luck “once again,” here they come….crying, boo-hooing and woe is me (blah, blah, blah); never learning from their mistakes, never heeding advice, or seeking to better themselves. They always look for the easy way out, the road of less work, or a handout. They have become pros at dodging bill collectors and those they personally owe a debt. They have perfected lying and nothing, absolutely nothing that crosses their lips has an ounce of truth to it. They cannot be trusted and have created a life of chaos, stress, uncertainty, and without stability for themselves and their family.
More often than not, I find myself…reminding myself…
“Do not make someone a priority…when they make you their option.”
Stings…but wise words to live by! Am I beginning to lose faith in the human race? Will we all eventually be out to stick it to others while looking out for “number one?” Is it because times are hard for so many people and they have launched into survival mode; not realizing that screwing people over is not a “survival” move?
I Want to Believe…
…that people are genuinely good and sometimes their view becomes cloudy. I want to believe it is a phase people are going through and in general people can be trustworthy, genuine, and sincere with their words and in their actions. Hopefully people will, sooner than later, realize life is not a dry run…quite the contrary, life is in full swing where u-turns and do-overs are not permitted.
