There Were Two Roads...

          The Low Road. We have all found ourselves traveling on it at least once in our lives. You know the one I'm talking about... the one filled with nagging, nitpicking and faultfinding. The road laden with sadness, jealousy, and resentment. Packed to the hilt with spite and negativity. Where backstabbing your supposed friends is a regular occurrence, and maliciously soiling the reputation of your enemies is something you strive for. It's a place where trashing those we hardly even know is widely accepted. It is a miserable, wretched, pot-hole riddled road.
        When was the last time you found yourself walking down that low road? Or are you traveling down that road right now? You're out there judging and condemning all kinds of people, mostly for things you know very little about. You're insulting your teachers and college professors to other classmates, tearing down coworkers behind their backs, even slandering and belittling your own family members just to make yourself look better. You're overflowing with pride and arrogance, criticizing practically everyone in sight just to prove a point.
          And I don't think you really want to be there, do you? You honestly don't like what you're doing, but you're doing it nonetheless. It seems easier to let it perpetuate than to stop it. Stopping it takes will power and restraint, and that is just too much work for you. But you are absolutely, positively 100% MISERABLE.  And since misery just adores company, the cycle continues. The mess just keeps rolling down hill and the problem snowballs.
          Hey, it's easy to find fault in others. Very easy. It's easy to continually point out flaws and criticize the weaknesses of others in a demeaning way. But it's wrong and will never get you anywhere but alone. Let's face it, trashing and tearing down others is no way to make progress in your life. It's certainly no way to keep or make friends. And it definitely isn't the way to make yourself happy. It doesn't bring one iota of value to anyone.
