Some people have a pinchent for drama, for creating their own problems, for causing more trouble than they’re worth. Sometimes those people are family members, sometimes they are just friends or acquaintences.
In all seriousness, how do people live that way? You would think that it gets really old, really tiring. I know it does for everyone watching. Everyone who is watching the sh*tshow from afar. Everyone who is mouthing “WTF?” in their heads. Everyone throwing their arms up in silence as the comedy of errors repeats itself over and over and over again….
At what point do you draw the line for banging your head against a brick wall?
At what point do you stop talking yourself blue in the face because listening, understanding, and following through were just never learned or reinforced?
At what point do you wash your hands of the situation, the people, and just move on?
At what point do you stop cutting off your arm or any other appendage to help?
At what point do you stop bending over backwards to even make suggestions?
All rhetorical questions, but questions that have to be asked any time someone you love (or maybe just even yourself if you are reading this) goes through any of the above exercises. You hate to see people flounder, but at what point do you just draw the line and say, “I don’t care any more?”
Comedy of errors…you can’t help but just laugh at how ridiculous some people can be.
Guess I’ll just grab a beer, make some popcorn, and watch it all over again.
