The world is filled with assholes. They are everywhere. They hit your parked car without leaving a note, cut you off while waiting in line at Whole Foods and literally knock you out of the way on their mad dash to the subway, so you face the closed doors instead of them.
A**holes aren’t limited to random strangers and non-innocent bystanders. I’m also talking about the assholes who cleverly disguise their insults as jokes. They do something just nice enough so you brush off their negative comment. Maybe he didn’t really mean it. Maybe he isn’t that bad of a person, or he had a bad day, or he – No. He’s just an asshole, plain and simple.
Then, there is that other level of a**hole that belongs in Dante’s ninth circle of hell. These are the ones who have no consideration for anything having to do with the feelings of others. They will do anything to manipulate their way out of a bad situation and into your heart, only to shatter it once it’s in their grasp.
There is a silver lining to having these people in your life: You learn from them. You learn from them and your life improves and you get better.
These are the lessons you learn from the a**holes in your life.
