Life is a funny thing sometimes - I mean, for real
Everytime you think you have a situation, environment or scenario handled in life - the inevitable curveball comes blazing across the plate.
Do you really know anyone
No matter how many precautions you take, how much you vet out the bottom line is to truly know someone is rare. The people you think will never surprise you sometimes do and the people you expect some stuff like that from sometimes don't.
In the end, you just need to embrace the journey and realize just staying between the curbs on that road is where it is at.
The getting bounced back and forth on occasion really isn't all that bad unless you take it too personal. Which is certainly a plight may of us struggle with.
Either way, to truly embrace life - embrace people you will have to leave yourself exposed. Unfortunately that means you will take your occasional lump or two with that exposure.
However, it's better than living a life surround by an emotional fortress.........right???
