|"Well, that's simple - pop on in to the Ego Cafe and become the resident poet, or grouch, or senile old fart, or whatever. Treat other people like dirt, what the hell do you care? You're the only one that matters. You are so special that you must go on forever, quirks and all, because the universe needs someone with just your specific qualities, likes & dislikes. "|
A person I know has been lost to this attitude. They were once an understanding and deep soul whom loved to talk about the very nature of life and death . Now... every thing trivial and they care more about money and out doing everyone.
I thought that people must choose to be whom they are by choosing what they are not as you get older, but this case is a real WTF.
lyliaun - the reason I can write that is because I have been that....
I personally feel that this a something that cycles, and it can rely upon many other things.....
Sometimes someone can get too wrapped up in what they are doing and forget the things that ARE important....
I see myself doing this more and more lately and it can take a sharp shock to get one back to what matters.....
The best one can do is to attempt to strike some kind of balance.....
