A while ago I had the idea that I should stop being so personal on here. I should stop displaying my neurosis for all the world to see. Well, f*ck it! It's my blog. I'll cry if I want to.
Lately, I've been watching someone I love go through some struggles and heartache as he, and I, realize our parents are older, they're human and they can't be our Supermen and Wonder Women forever. Another friend is still dealing with her partner, and our friend, taking her own life last year. A different friend is waiting to hear if she has uterine cancer or not. I could go on and on. So many people are dealing with some life altering situation. Many are private and don't share their fears, struggles and sadness with the world, but that doesn't mean they aren't going through something. We never know what anyone is facing.
In all of this, I'm constantly reminded how each day is a gift and we're not guaranteed any of them. I know it sounds cliche, but it is true. I'm also aware of how much time I waste on stupid, petty things. That's the part that makes me angry.
It's really hard not to look at people and shake them when they complain about not liking their theatre seat or how offended they are because someone looked at them funny. REALLY?! I want to look at them and scream, "Grow the fuck up! It's not all about you."
