It's got to be better to consciously decide to be alone, and never expect anyone rather than expect people and be disappointed and hurt by it.
I'm the type of person who's nice. I go out of my way to help people and try and be nice, but I really have to think about changing all that, because I put other peoples needs before mine, and really, sometimes that just comes back to bite you in the ass. I try to be there, and be understanding, and make sure that everyone is happy, even if it puts me out and then I end up with second best, or if I do try and get what I want I end up alone.
God I spent half the evening mentally writing this post; in great detail. Now I'm just to upset and tiered, and wow, still have things for other people to get done, so don't really have time. So instead you get this vague cranky post.
