Just trying to get the most out of life by figuring it out
But not with people...?

Life is fantastic. It's beautiful and gorgeous and amazing and fragile yet deep and strong and moving and just...invaluable.

And people suck.

Isn't that how life kinda goes? I mean, sure you have some people who seem great. And you have some people who do good things and you feel like they deserve some credit. But all in all, people suck.

When I was little, I would say that I hated my life when I was upset. I grew up a little bit and started saying that I hated life when I was upset. Then I grew up and thought I just had really bad luck with people but that life itself is not so bad.  Then I thought it was just me and that I sucked. I'm sure it'll change as I continue to evolve but now, I feel like the thing that frustrates me most is people. In general, just people.

People just kinda suck. People place so much value on some people over others and it's noticeable. People do so much to hurt others. I went through a phase where I thought I was suckier than everyone. Then when I thought I was better that everyone. Now, I finally respect myself and am fine with the way I conduct my own life. Yet, I find myself constantly being frustrated trying to deal with all other people dealing with their own issues. That's all life is. It revolves around people trying to deal with other people dealing with their own issues. That is what gets me down. I just want to shake them and say there are NO issues. You not having a boyfriend is not an issue. You thinking you aren't getting enough attention is NOT an issue.

How do you live a life in which you love life but are always being brought down by people? even after you surround yourself with people of like mind or people who appear to not have issues?

It's never going to happen on this side of eternity.  That's why to many heaven is so appealing.  For us this world is the only hell we'll know. 

We live in a fallen world with fallen people.  The best thing you can do is try to stay away from the toxic people in your life as much as possible.  Sometimes you can learn to manage them in small doses. 

Basically what it boils down to is life would be great if it wasn't for the people living here.
