The Opened Wound: PAST GHOSTS
- We can draw lessons from the past, but we cannot live in it.
I always tell people I hate talking about the past, but here I am still repeating the mistakes I’d thought were fixed. A friend from a group of people I was with last year decided to show up on a chat window last night after I queried about a run that he was going on about during the day. Then, seeing as none of his friends noticed the changes going on in the world, I said to him that I left his precious little group of conspiracy theorists, since I’ve seen the truth of what they were; a modern update on Jehovah’s Witnesses in the way they talk about supposed rebelling against government and changing the city’s ways of thinking, of which I grew skeptical, over the past few months, with them doing and preaching the same things over and over, leaving me to quietly fade from view. I regretted talking to R______ last night because of:
- Knowing what he will be doing with the rest of his life until he drops dead and rots in the ground
- His lack of observation skills when it comes to the world around him
- His laziness, which gets more apparent every time
I am quite thankful about my decision to leave this group of bar-hogging morons after seeing through the illusions they cast upon the public and the false promises they give out. Once I pitied the fact that they were getting threatened by members of the public for their behaviour, but now I don’t because these guys are getting their just desserts.
