"A man's as miserable as he thinks he is."
Ever notice that miserable people want you to be miserable with them?
Ever go somewhere and just hear EVERYBODY complaining about something?
Sometimes I just sit back and laugh at people complaining in unison. It's almost like they're having a complaining competition. They try to come up with better complaints than the next. Someone is complaining about their knee, then someone else will say "That's nothing, my elbow is ____." Some people even fall in the trap and get all riled up about something that doesn't even affect them. Then all of a sudden their pinkie toe starts hurting, sympathy pain I suppose.
Being miserable can be contagious if you let it. If you're not careful, you'll slowly turn into the people you hang around. If you have to remember one thing, remember this:
Misery loves company, but it doesn't have to be you...
