and yet, the audacity to be negative...



The past met up with me this week.  His history has not been good.  For as long as I  have known this person there has been an absence of work history with him.  The times he did have a job, the employment lasted until the first or second pay check.

Then the lies started about where the money went, but we knew where the money had gone.  Then there is the complaining about his plight.  On the cusp of the highly publicized court case, he felt intensely that he was in the same boat. Opportunities came and went because of the decisions he made. And yet. And yet, he blames others for his mistakes, because it is easier that way.  There were words spoken, intentions misconstrued, and thankfulness.  Yes thankfulness.  Now, I remember why I walked away all those years ago...
