Without wit.

So I'm being fairly contradictory to my earlier post today regarding my lack of inspiration.

Sometimes I honestly wonder about the goodness in people,
I want to trust people. I want to believe that they are good. I want to believe that they will treat people how they want to be treated. I want to believe a lot of things..

But I don't.

The truth is that I have experienced far too many people that will lie, manipulate, use and abuse. Now this may be my own lack of judgement but I have found that I'm a complete pushover and end up getting hurt, a lot. I'm too busy trying hard to be there for others and do right by them that I in turn, end up getting walked over.

Is the only way to get ahead to stop caring?

I dont want to be cold, I really don't. But sometimes I feel like that's my only option. Survival of the fittest and all that jazz.

I wonder, can you really be happy if you always put others first?

  1. I wrote a post similar to this the other day B... I know exactly how you feel! It's all a lot of questions with no answers but in answer to your last question I think if you put others first in entirely then no, you can't be happy. I think, as with everything else in life, you need to find a balance where you dont become selfish but you don't let yourself be a push over either. I'm the same as you... sometimes your naive to it all.
