I get frustrated at society. A lot. It's gotten to the point where people use words and ideas in ways totally out of context, intended meaning, or meant intent. So many phrases have such negative connotations that when somebody *does* have a profound thought, they're left with no words to properly express them.

The concept of Love has been seriously twisted around. People have gotten it into them that people are only worth loving if they think they deserve it. Pretty much, the idea is "as long as you're good, I'll love you". It may seem harsh saying it, but it's gone on that way in practice for a very long time. We can see it manifested in the way people are conducting relationships, parenting, families, and so on. But this is just so... backwards. When you're doing good (you know when you are) in your life, you don't really need other people. You've got the cash, the social associations, the tech, and the leisure time. You can self-subsist pretty damn good.

However, when you mess up badly (you know when you have)... when you've done something stupid and irresponsible, and you know that you've hurt a lot of people in the process, and you probably can't put things back together... that's when you need caring people the most. The point of loving someone is still loving them even when they don't deserve it. The point of forgiveness is forgiving them *especially* when they don't deserve it. The point of trust is relying on them even when you know they'll mess it up half the time.

It's wierd typing all of this because it should be pretty simple stuff. And when you look at it on paper, it is. The problem is when we let these ideas sink into us without even really realizing it - then we're acting from some weird unspoken, undefined, and unresolved rationale.

This is the part where I end this post awkwardly.
