Most people say they have to see something to believe it. But what if they refuse to see? What if they ignore all the signs that are shouting “Look! Look this way! The truth is to your right!” and they consistently, purposefully, look left? What if you are caught in the middle of your moral high ground and being a supportive friend? Sometimes, our friends and loved ones make god awful decisions. I know that personally, I bare my share. You can tell them over and over and over, and over again, that it’s wrong. That it makes you uncomfortable to be involved. That you want them to be happy, but they need to stop riding the wave and make a ground decision- regardless of what they may or may not lose. Only to have them, in the end, do what ever it is that they want to do, and get mad at you for telling them the truth? How do you get out of it? How do you separate yourself from the impending doom, the shit storm that is about to hit? When knowing that, while you are not the one making these life choices, you will surely, positively, 100% without a doubt be affected? When your own livelihood is at stake? It’s almost like being a child amidst the whirlwind of their parents divorce. It’s inequitable. It leaves you anxious and apprehensive, knowing that quite possibly tomorrow, today, any second – every thing that you have worked so hard to achieve could come tumbling down. It could all be over in the blink of an eye. This is the calm before the storm. And no matter what you do, or what you say, in the end you will be left looking at the destruction and carnage the tornado has left in its wake. Your friends. Your career. Your life.
