I don't think I should include you in this, but I'll feel less guilty if I do. Please replace 'we' with 'I' if you aren't comfortable.
We make plans, and blame others when they don't materialize.
We start making up reasons for failure even before we start.
We tend to let go of things 'just this one time'.
We upset loved ones, and then expect them to make things alright.
We try to hold on to past achievements and refuse to accept that things will NOT work out.
We spend more energy towards NOT doing things that makes our lives better.
We are nothing but wolves disguised in sheepskin.
We realise that all the above are true, but think "it doesn't apply to me".
Not even when the best thing that has happened to us walks away.
