Sugar, spice & everything nice

Wisdom #38 Sugar Spice Everything Nice
There's a popular saying where girls are made of sugar, spice and everything nice. That's a lie; I mean, it's a literal lie (obviously) but it's also a metaphorical lie, no one's sweet, cool and nice all the time. And here I am, venting out my feelings at midnight because I'm extremely frustrated tonight. Wanna know why? Because people are abusive, people take advantage of you and mistreat you, they do everything to blame things on you instead of sharing responsibilities or, dare I say it? Admitting they're wrong. 

It doesn't matter how much you love someone or how badly you feel like you need a person; a friend, a girlfriend, a sister (or the male equivalents) can hurt you in a way that makes you consider if keeping that person around is really worth the trouble, if you should keep on helping out... If you should keep on caring. You know, I try really hard to be nice, as much as possible, but sometimes I wish I could be a jerk, I wish I could hit back. I guess, sometimes you just have to wake up and accept that some people are shitty humans and stop trying to see the good that isn't there.

// Hay un dicho popular que dice: girls are made of sugar, spice and everything nice (traducido es algo como, las niñas están hechas de azúcar, especias y todo lo bueno). Es una mentira; o sea, una mentira literal (claro) pero también una mentira metafórica: nadie es dulce, buena onda y amable todo tiempo. Y aquí estoy, sacando mis sentimientos a medianoche porque hoy me siento terriblemente frustrado. ¿Quieren saber por qué? Porque la gente es abusiva, la gente se aprovecha de ti y te trata mal, hacen todo para culparte en vez de compartir responsabilidades o, ¿me atrevo a decirlo? Admitir que están mal.

No importa cuánto ames a alguien o cuánto sientas que necesitas a una persona; una amiga, una novia, una hermana (o sus equivalentes masculinos) pueden lastimarte en formas que te hacen considerar si mantener a esa persona en tu vida realmente vale la pena, si deberías seguir ayudando... Si te debería seguir importando. Saben, yo me esfuerzo mucho por ser amable, tanto como sea posible, pero a veces desearía poder ser un patán, desearía poder regresar el golpe. Supongo que a veces sólo tienes que despertar y aceptar que algunas personas son seres humanos feos y dejar de intentar ver lo bueno que no está ahí.
Love always,
Henry.
