NOVEMBER 4, 2021: “The Bullshit On Your Driveway” …

Wait! NO! Not if I told you …


It’s not always easy to see through all of the healing piles of total BULLSHIT piled in front of you, especially when it was dumped there by family, friends, and loved ones. This I know too well! But lemme ask you THIS:

Was there ever a time that you could define? Tell me was there ever a time that you could refine what was boiling deep inside you? What was building up inside you? So what’ll you do when none of it’s true? Ya gonna go and break the mirror you thought was you while it’s coming down around you? It’s all falling down around you! If I took away your one excuse? Helped you down and cut the noose? Would you leave it all behind you? Could you leave this all behind you? If you tore away the tourniquet and put yourself in front of it? Could you leave this all behind you? Would you leave this all behind you? Tell me was there ever a way, ever a day, you could have simply walked away or talked your way out of what was changing deep inside you? Rearranging what’s inside you? While you’re lookin’ around for someone to blame, I hear that you been running around dropping my name while the ship you’re on is sinking. What the fuck have you been thinking?

Now, I’m not saying you have to leave everyone choking on your fumes as you head for the other side of the mountain. Not only is that just not a viable option sometimes, it’s not even always optimal. Sometimes, however, just ripping off the tourniquet of excuses that keep you stuck in places you know you’re not supposed to be is the only way to “GOOD goodbye” some mother effers and start over with a shit-free ride. But, hey, that’s a different story for different day …

… which I suppose is THE

perfect segue into THIS:

“Blood may be thicker than water”, but if it’s either too thick or too thin it can literally be a death sentence, and life’s too fucking short to die of preventable and treatable sepsis. That same principal applies to “drinking straw parasites” and energy vampires, who, too, are “unfortunately” contagious.

At the end of the road, whether it’s letting people go, driving away and never looking back, or driving away to a safer distance, the first step to leaving anything behind is turning the key, revving the engine, focusing on what you’re after, and DRIVING!

By the way, don’t forget that no matter which direction you decide to drive, you have to forgive people for the SHIT SHOWS they bring into your life. EVERY STINKIN’ ONE OF THEM! If not for them, FOR YOU!Bitterness and grudges can and will make you sick, and who wants to drive to the mountains with that kind of “bad blood” sickness, either?
