Here’s the problem I have with anybody trying to or thinking they do- love me.
I’m a sociopath. Everybody loves a sociopath. Whether they know they love a sociopath or not.
It’s the nature of the disorder.
I’m gonna charm your pants off and make you swoon and captivate you with my humor and taste and wit and cleverness. I’m the bait nobody can resist whether they like it or not.
Even if I don’t try to be. Even if I never meant to be. Or didn’t want to be. Will is no matter for me.
It always happens.
That’s why it upsets me when people say “You could have anybody you wanted.” As if it were a compliment.
It’s not a compliment.
It makes me want to lock myself in one solitary room for the rest of my life, and I think we all know that that is the last thing I could take.
People just think I’m being modest. Just pretending like I’m not worth their compliments.
But I’m really not. Nobody should want to love me.
I feel like I’m some fucking magic trick that knows it’s the best, most illusive magic trick there is, one with a deadly ending, that can’t escape it’s fate, but still nobody can resist.
That tries to warn its victims. Tries to save them before it’s too late.
But it never works.
And nobody ever listens.
Because everybody loves a magic trick.
I can’t tell you what today will bring. So, take every chance you’re given just in case you don’t have tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow to depend on. Forget that your fears and how you can’t and why you won’t. Tomorrow may never come. So, do it now. Do it today. And don’t, by any means, be afraid.
“It’s that time of year again. Time to take stock of the previous twelve months so that you can avoid making the same mistakes in the coming twelve months. Which, of course, you won’t. You’ll make them over and over again.
That, my friend, is what they call history. And if you are old enough to be reading this column, you are old enough to have history. They say that those who don’t study history are doomed to repeat it. What they don’t tell you is that those who do study history are also doomed to repeat it — the difference is that they know they’re repeating it.
What I look forward to every new year is a fresh crop of new mistakes. Sure, I’ll repeat the old ones, but the great thing about life is the capacity for surprise. That is what you call history in the making.
With the new year right around the corner, lets crane our necks backward for one last look at the year just past to see what mistakes others have committed. Maybe we can learn from them.
But mistakes aren’t the only things from which we can learn. We learn, too, from accomplishment…and last year was distinguished by both great accomplishments and great mistakes.
Given that, we have a lot to learn in the coming year.”
