That's Pride... (exerpt)

(Another worthwhile Charlesdog post, from a couple days back...)
I was thinking about how we all think that our abilities will last forever. When you are young, you think that you can only get better at everything. You think that you can party all night and still get in a productive day the next morning. You think that friendship is easy as long as you have fun. You think that you can go around and “just chill” with people of the opposite sex forever and not make any kind of commitment.

Then, you wake up one day with a big hangover because you thought that you could party like you did in the old days. You feel like crap, but you still have to go to that job of yours, where you are overworked and under appreciated, to pay your mortgage on the picket fence house in the Burbs, along with little Jimmy’s piano lessons and little Sarah’s ballet, jazz, and tap. You lose touch with a lot of your friends, because your work and your home life consume you, and you are so tired that you don’t know how to be a good friend to anyone.
