I recently caught up with an old friend that I had not seen for some time and boy, oh boy, were the results depressing. I met this man fifteen years ago. He was this really put together dude. He had a great job with a side business to generate extra income, nice house in a nice town, wife and kids, the whole kit and caboodle. Fast forward to today and it is like he is living the completely opposite life. He has a job, but not sure how much income it really generates. He lives in an apartment in a somewhat shitty part of a dump city. He is divorced and on-an-off seeing a somewhat psychotic lady and is having some problems with his kids.
Life really breaks people down. I feel bad because he really is a good guy and he seems super lonely now. What the hell happened?
I want to slap him in the face and tell him to get it together. I think part of his problem is that he is living for other people in his life and he needs to be selfish and live for himself. His ex-wife is remarried and is a bit of a cunt and his kids are adults. Fuck them, they can figure it out, this guy desperately needs to focus on his own needs instead of these women who will never be satisfied, well, because, women are incapable of feeling satisfaction.
I really want to see this guy turn it around. Everybody loves an good underdog story.
