36. it's ok
Edited on Thu Apr-24-08 07:42 AM by unpossibles
I've been there too, and then you'll realize that it's not that assholes have it better, it's that they tend to be too clueless to realize that everyone knows they're assholes, and that often people just pretend to go along with what they want to avoid ruffling their feathers and creating drama.

It's hard though, and a fine line to walk, as if you are accommodating - something which I am often as well - it can be taken advantage of by the unscrupulous.

You are not a loser. Stand proud that you are a fine human being, and always remember that were more of the world like you, we'd have a lot less bullshit. Were the world all assholes, we'd likely be dead and extinct.

And even though you don't ask for it, here:
