‘A ROLLING STONE GATHERS NO MOSS’
My Dad LOVES throwing this pearl of wisdom my way because of my incessant travelling and relocating. Thing is though, this could be one of two meanings…I know he is tryna say that if I keep moving around and starting fresh then I will struggle to acquire ‘stuff’, and I think by ‘stuff’ he means a mortgage and a husband. Where as I like the saying, because I see ‘moss’ as ‘baggage’. I like to roll through life and not get stuck in one position, with one group of friends and limited adventure and experiences. So sorry pops. Cue Limp Bizkit ‘keep rollin rollin rollin ….’
‘NEVER MAKE SOMEBODY A PRIORITY WHO ONLY EVER MAKES YOU AN OPTION’
We walk around feeling so fucking hard done to and unappreciated and quite frankly, it’s our own fault. But then if you just go around doing stuff for people who only do things for you then you are a bit of a wanker. So I reckon it’s all about balance. So what if you are always getting a round in, and others never reach for their wallet…that shit is trivial. I just think that if friends/boyfriends/girlfriends/ never call when they say they will, or leave you hanging when you could be out in the world hanging with non-cunty folk then you should really just kick them to the curb. Emotional users better recognize.
‘BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD’
I am South African. And like the Germans, South Africans carry a stigma. There is nothing we can do about that. You can’t get into constant arguments about how you aren’t racist and be angry about things that happened in your history…you can only be the best person you can be. Think about how you would like to be perceived and help people to understand you by just basically not being a dickhead. If one person leaves your company with a little bit of faith in humanity, then you are doing good things.
‘AN EYE FOR AN EYE ENDS UP MAKING THE WHOLE WORLD BLIND’
He cheats on you so you give his best friend a wristie? Wow, that showed him alright! Showed him you’re a whore that is. She posts a passive aggressive tweet/blog post/FB update so you counter it with an even bitchier one? Yeah so everyone just thinks you are BOTH lame. There is no better revenge than the revenge of a zero reaction. Just fighting fire with fire puts you on the same level, and that level is low…in case you were wondering
Be yourself xx
