It’s a fact of life that people will take advantage of you, look you straight in the eye and lie to you, and won’t think twice about hurting you if there’s something in it for them they want badly enough at that moment.
Never has there been a truth more tragic to know as true. You’re not only supposed to accept it, but also expect it.
The paradox is, the earlier in life you understand this, the better off you are…but the older you are that life finds you still hoping otherwise, and the greater the number of people that life finds still hoping otherwise, the better this world would be.
