Big shocker, I know.

Even though this is major common knowledge I can say that few actually believe themselves when they hear or say this. For the longest time it tried to move over various areas of my life and fix them. Alot of what I was doing was patching stuff for some big day when that area of my life would get better. Some areas did get better and the wound closed up quite nicely. But I got spoiled and assumed that it would happen for everything everywhere.
Thats not true though. I realize now.

Somethings will never fix or get better. For most I have to settle on a slightly undesirable alternative and for other aspects it will come later if not at all, and thats life.

We are who we are because of how this messed up world works.

Given; if you can move out of the way from an on-coming car....do it! but stuff thats out of our reach and beyond us can be dealt with as far as we go.
Dont wait for some higher power or the winds to make it better. You're the only one it effects if something does or doesn't get done. You're the only one that changes if something happens or doesn't happen. No one else is altered like you. So why should anyone or anything else intervene. Coincidences do happen where someone fixes something that was also troubling you, but those odds aren't worth relying on.

I am who I am because of what I've allowed to happen, not because of the rules I've hidden behind.

"I am who I am because of what I've allowed to happen, not because of the rules I've hidden behind." <- I liked that.

So, you're saying that if something hurt me, in a sense it was because I allowed it to happen (which I agree with)? But that's life, isn't it? I wouldn't want to live in regret. Cliche, but I think "Better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all" fits nicely.

the environment breeds the environment.
our society breeds us,
we hate it but it keeps us alive.

reminds me of this song "rise up with fists"

"What are you changing?
Who do you think you're changing?
You can't change things, we're all stuck in our ways
It's like trying to clean the ocean
What do you think you can drain it?
Well it was poison and dry long before you came

But you can wake up younger under the knife
And you can wake up sounder if you get analyzed
And I better wake up
There but for the grace of God, go I" - jenny lewis and the watson twins
