Get over yourself so you can get to know yourself.
I'm sick of empty promises. I'm tired of excuses. But more than anything, I'm sick of people I care about getting in the way of themselves.
Through empty promises and excuses, nothing is getting done. Instead of shooting for the moon or even just attempting to do something, people insist on feeling sorry for themselves. Quite frankly I've had enough.
I can't keep caring about you if you don't care about yourself. It's exhausting. It also scares me. If you don't concern yourself with yourself, why am I putting forth all this effort? It's like I'm looking out for you...but I'm doing it for the both of us. There's something not right with that.
I'm sick of people drawing on the past. Well, this happened to me before and that's why I'm the way I am. I'm human and from time to time I find myself drawing some sort of "conclusions." I find myself thinking things like "maybe I'm so honest because I've been lied to so many times."
Haha. Yeah right.
Can we grow up and get over ourselves? Stop focusing on what happened to you to make your life suck and start thinking about what you can do to make your life rock. It's not that hard. If you think something is going wrong in your life, instead of trying to pinpoint what made it happen, try changing it. It can only benefit you, and everyone around you.
Cause we're sick of caring too much. If you don't care about yourself, why should we? Because we love you. We don't want to see you get hurt. But you're the one hurting yourself. You're the one who refuses to move on. You're the one stuck in the past and not changing for the better. You're the one refusing to admit that you've done wrong. You're the one who won't make things better. We're done putting forth all this effort to help you when you don't want to do anything about it.
You're stuck in the past. And if you stay there, you may open up your eyes one day and realize everyone is gone.
