So yeah, "They don't really make a handbook for how to do these types of things". That is what I have heard recently from a couple people, and I have to admit that this is true.
They do not do this.
I don't remember getting some kind of "handbook" explaining how to handle all of life's ups and downs and difficult situations.
I just remember learning from and listening to the people that raised me and cared enough to teach me how to be a decent upstanding citizen of Earth.
(Now refer to the above photo, thanks.)
I mean, it's no "handbook", but it ended up working out pretty well for me.
Maybe that's just me.
"They don't really make a handbook for how to do these types of things"
But what the fuck is that even supposed to mean? Is that an excuse?! Because if it is, that is such a pathetic excuse.
At this point in my life, I have had enough of my own experiences (good and bad) to know how to handle many different things, that's what paying attention gets you.
And it doesn't matter what the issue is, it doesn't matter the situation because I feel like you can distill many of these things down to certain categories.
-nice and not nice
-good and bad
-right and wrong
You don't need a handbook to tell you how to be a nice person.
You shouldn't need to whip out a dog eared notebook to tell you how to be a good person.
If you do, then please, get as far away from me as possible because that is scary, sad and you are broken.
Don't poison the well!!
Right and wrong? Welllll, I think there can be some grey areas there depending on the situation.
"Yes officer, I did shoot that guy, but he was turning into a werewolf, so, you know..."
I'll let that one slide, for now.
I mean, give me a break with this whole "How does life even work" stuff.
I'll save you the trouble of pondering further and say that life works better when you can be a responsible grown up when it counts.
Again, maybe that's just me, but that's how I feel about the whole thing.
Onward and upward,
