Truth or what ever passes for it these days

Things I've learned in my life...


Some people are who they are. They won't ever change, they won't ever care and they won't ever be who we think they should be, would be if they could be or anything but what and how and who they are.

As a corrollorary to that...learn to love them as they are, or leave them as they are. Anything else is a waste of energy on your part; and an insult to the other person.

It's taken me a good long while, but I think I've finally figured out that there's a point where all that's left to do is to make an exit.

We are, none of us, as interesting as we think we are. Nor, are we as non interesting as others think we are. Nor for that matter, are we ever as non interesting to everyone as we are to ourselves. (yeah..okay, still working on that one).

No one will ever do it for us. Whatever it is. We have to find our own mountains, climb them ourselves and write our own memoirs.

Life is too serious to take lightly and too short to take seriously.
