‘the road to hell is paved with good intentions’ oh how true this is. No matter what you try to do, however much you try to help someone or rectify a bad situation, you end up being the one who metaphorically gets shot in the back. I don’t know what it is about human nature that makes us all so incapable of accepting help, or understanding that some people are often put in the most horrible and impossible situations, and why we are so uncapable of trying to just keep our mouths shut, so that we don’t make people feel even smaller than they already do. The phrase ‘shoot the messenger’ comes to mind. No matter what is, whether its family issues, education, economic hardship, there’s always something and someone ready to pull us in the gutter. My only question, is who’s willing to pull us out.
