I've been hurt. I've been hurt today by someone dear and close to me.
To be thought of as conceited. To be thought of as someone who has ulterior motives. To be thought of as someone who would push a loved one down just to stay on top of the food chain. To be disrespected. To be talked down to. I've been hurt.
I've been hurt that I am not thought of as the man I think I am today. I've been hurt that my integrity had to come into question. I've been hurt that it always has to be this way. Always.
Things are often the way they are because of nature's scheme, society's prejudices or just plain old chance. There are choices made for everyone that they haven't made themselves. Life is full of it. Some are good. Some are bad. But if we all start finding places to bury blame, then everyone's a goner, now isn't it?
Whether it's good advice, honest suggestion or real fact, it always has to suffer brutal force. Action reaction.
It's always the case - one moment you're on top of the world, and the next, you come crashing down. Life, is a sine wave.
Persistence is key.
I shall endure.
