For those of you who think you need drugs and alcohol to make your lives tragic; For those of you looking to legitimize your bad behavior; For those of you whining and not making a contribution to justify said whining; and for those of you generally being reckless and irresponsible... - FUCK YOU. MOTHERFUCK YOU.
You just remember something while you're being stupid, knowing full well how I feel about stupid people. When these "problems" and "escape mechanisms" and various other bullshit of the same ilk comes back to fuck you royally, I'm going to be the first to look you in the goddamned face and say "Well, what the fuck did you expect, you dumbass? This all happened because you asked for it, BEGGED for it, and MADE it happen"
We are responsible for ourselves and our actions. It doesn't matter what this one did or that one said. No one breaks your heart, you run the risk of being hurt when you choose to get involved. You are not responsible for what others say or do, you are ONLY responsible for how you react to it. Shit happens, we all have shit in our lives, yours is not bigger than the next one. Stop getting addicted to drama and to people. Get stuff of your own to do that doesn't involve the people you know. Get outside and get sonme exercise. Win the lottery and become independently wealthy or get a fucking job. Spend your free time (or which there is considerable for at least three or four of you) actively looking for work and less goofing off.
Not one of you is homeless. Not one of you is left without choices and options to make it better. Not one of you is starving. Not one of you is alone in the world. Not one of you is being beaten up on a regular basis. Not one of you is dying from a fatal disease and is wracked with pain just trying to breathe. Not one of you is giving back as much as you get.
You're all a bunch of whiney candyasses and you need to suck it up and get with the fucking program. I have no patience for your bullshit A N Y M O R E. You have no more excuses, the ones you've been using up until now are threadbare. The only real problems some of you have are the ones you have made for yourselves. The only thing I hate more than the blatantly stupid is when seemingly intelligent people act stupidly.
Know this - I am about to be 32 years old and have done enough living for 5 people. I have made every bad choice in the book and have a past that would make Robert Downey Jr. himself say "Dude, THAT'S just wrong..." But I've chosen to make my life better by doing the work for myself in order to make that happen. I do not complain about trivial bullshit like it matters in the least. I make a contribution wherever I can. If I DO bitch about something, believe I've more than earned the right to do so. So don't come at me with your nonsense and drama unless you're ready to be called out on it. I'm fed up with it.
To end this on a lighter, positive note, congrats, love, and respect to my friend Cheryl for having some balls, for being fearless, and for ignoring the pain long enough to get the job done. I'm proud of you, sweetie - you did all of that on your own for yourself and no one else, and I'm as pleased as I can be. ::grins::
