“Hope is tomorrow’s veneer over today’s disappointment.” – Evan Esar

People can be disappointing. It’s as simple as that. If there is one lesson I should learn, it is that. I put too much faith in people that are undeserving.

I don’t put enough trust in my instincts. I give people second chances who possibly never deserved a first chance. I forgive and forget much easier than I should.

Heartbreak sucks, but letting someone do it more than once is even worse. Once is enough.

Some people aren’t worth your tears; some people aren’t worth your time. Remembering who is truly important and who deserves you is not always as easy as it sounds.

Feeling sorry for yourself is a tiring act. Listening to depressing music only leaves you feeling worse. Especially when you know that things can (and will) be so much better in time.

Bill summed it up best this morning, when he gave me my new mantra for the week – “Well, if that’s the best you could do, then your best sucks!”

Amen to that.
