This is a blog for the underdog, written by one.
‘Why me?” I used to ask myself (and still do now and then). “Why do I seem to attract people who turn out to be such jerks?” I just didn’t understand. But after many years of learning the hard way, things are starting to sink in.
Every person’s story is going to be a little bit different. But I figured the best way to get people thinking about how they got to where they’re at in life and in love is by sharing mine. My life is far from perfect, but it’s a whole lot better these days, having found many great teachers, and more importantly, learned from my mistakes and made some changes in my life.
A lot of what I learned has to do with when to say enough is enough – when cutting one’s losses leaves one further ahead than sticking it out for the long haul. There is no shame in giving up sometimes; sometimes there is more shame in going along with things, in hindsight. Sometimes you need to kick yourself where it counts and start living with a little integrity, and waking up to what’s going on around you.
And sometimes you have to kick those jerks where it counts. To the curb, anyway.
