  1. I have wasted most of my life trying to force things to go the way I wanted them to and they never worked out. It has been beyond frustrating and insanely irritating that I have watched the worst kind of people get everything they want, just handed to them.

    The reality is that most of the time they end up not appreciating any of it, which sickens me even more; because I would have given up just about everything, to have the opportunity to have the things and chances that they just throw away.

    It’s difficult not to dwell on the way my life has turned out and the mistakes that I have made, but I am desperately working on trying to change that.

    1. You’re describing ‘life’ Randy. And life doesn’t have to be like that. I think if the Coronavirus has taught us one thing, it’s that life’s short and we must pull together.

      Whilst I agree with your sentiment here, things tend to seem to work out like that, behind the scenes we may not always know what others deal with.

      From the outset you have a point, but for ourselves we must think about our own lives and not choose to dwell on what others have, or what they don’t have.

      Instead of wishing, or beating ourselves up, not literally of course, if a door doesn’t open, it’s usually for a reason, it would be up to us to work out the reason, for us to try to open a new door elsewhere.

      My mum used to say, we’re a long time dead. If we worked on that understanding a little more, we’d change our attitudes not only on our lives, but towards each other too. And we must.

    1. Thanks. Yes, perhaps now is a good time to change what we know and what we practice.

      The coronavirus and lock down is giving us much food for thought. I believe it’s important for us to use this time to reflect on our lives more.
