When you're in a situation that makes you uncomfortable, or just any crappy situation in general, isn't it natural to avoid that situation entirely? I'm gonna go out on a limb here, and say it is. And isn't it, then, natural to refrain from revisiting said situation over and over again?

The answer is also yes, in case there was any doubt. We're two for two.

So, please explain to me why putting yourself into that situation over and over again isn't utterly stupid? Generally, getting burned once is enough to stop an intelligent person from sticking their hand in a fire. But if there's a legitimate reason for this, I would be glad to hear you out.

I'm just as guilty of it as the next guy or gal, but eventually, someone needed to say it. Crap doesn't happen spontaneously. Well, it does sometimes, but it happens a heck of a lot less when you're not throwing the door open and inviting it in.

Basically, crap is an opportunist.

It's a bit ranty, but it's the truth. Don't whine about how you're so sick of people letting you down when you're the one letting those same people back into your life every week. Stop repeatedly friending and unfriending your frienemies on Facebook, or even worse, changing your relationship status multiple times a day depending on your current mood with your boo. Eventually, people are going to stop sympathizing with you and start criticizing you, especially people like me who don't score high in the patience area.

Make your choice, use that backbone God gave you, and stand your ground.
