Morning, Ladies and Gents…
So, I borrowed this from Patty’s FB.
I often talk about life not having a handbook or likening it to skydiving without a parachute (To paraphrase love from Hitch). Hopefully, somewhere along the way you find someone you can trust that’ll help you when you fall, because, face it, you will fall A LOT. Not wishing it on anyone in particular, just fact. Even then, at the end of the day you’re responsible for you and what you’ve done.
Now, we know crips that haven’t made it out of the parental unit house, because they’re obviously scare, but then, turn around and blame it on this and that…mainly, their cripness.
Yeah, we get it, living on your own is scary shit…especially if you’re a crip. There’ve been PLENTY of times when I was on my own I wondered how the hell I was going to do this or that. With Joey almost 18 years, and we still have shit come up where we wonder how…AND, this isn’t little trivial shit. Yes, and, we’re guilty of the blame game too, but at the end of the day, it’s always on us.
Now, I’m not saying go out there, because you’re an adult, because that’s what adults do, no. I don’t want anybody to fail at life even if you’ve had a silver spoon in your mouth most of your life. Some people just can’t. BUT, don’t “don’t do,” because of something that might take work, and blame it on someone else or a cripness.
I also know people that’ve made it out of the parental unit house, but their parental units pay their stuff. Again, it’s great to have someone in life to help you along like we hope we’re doing here, but don’t turn around blame said person if a bill doesn’t get paid. Try to learn the ins and outs of setting up home. If you can’t get it, OK, you tried. Yeah, budgeting and being an adult sucks, but, it’s your life. Like my dad used to tell me when he was getting me up in the mornings for school and I didn’t want to wake up to help, “Participate in getting yourself up.”
Be good to each other.
