People hate that I flip two cigarettes
Upside down in each pack
But I hate that people notice
When you gain three pounds,
But not when you buy a new hat.
I’ve been told that the way I sleep
With one leg draped over
The person lying next to me
But I think it’s annoying
When people tell me
I look pretty,
But only when I paint my face.
I’ve heard that old men
Like to touch the girls who work late at bars,
But I want to know
Why they never kiss the women they married
fourty-two years ago.
I’ve noticed that mothers teach their daughters
That it’s rude to refuse a hug
From an uncle they’ve met three times,
But forget to teach them
That they aren’t obliged to kiss
The boy who paid for dinner.
with all the work I need to be doing right now, I picked the wrong night to be reminiscing but man what good times
With the amount of energy it takes you to blame others for your problems, you could be devoting energy to actually solving them. Accepting responsibility for the suffering you experience is the first step to overcoming it. When you realize this, you cease being a victim of circumstance, because you realize you never really were. You’ve been a victim of your own shortcomings, and now that you’ve accepted them, you are capable of change.
The most memorable people in life will be the friends who loved you when you weren’t very lovable.
