There's an old saying that you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. I'm find that i have many a dehydrated horse around me lately and none of them are drinking. Even if you push the sons of a bitches in when their mouth is open into said water, they're the type of horses that won't swallow (that's what she said). So what are you supposed to do?

I imagine that most of you reading this are adults and you know that you can advise, warn, scream, yell, reason, plead and beg with your friends/family/significant/insignificant other to do or not do something but ultimately, they're the ones who are going to be making the decision and either they'll reap the benefits if things go well or face the consequences.

It's really hard not want to do the Grace from Will and Grace "I told you so" dance when they face the consequences you warned them about. Instead, you're supposed to be supportive and take the higher road*

*Note: The higher road is known as the more mature and noble and humble road but isnt calling it 'higher' pretentious itself?

Anyways, readers, horses, I digress.

There are times when you let people just do whatever b/c they're going to do whatever they want anyways, but at what point do you chime in and say something?

It's hard because for me personally, what credentials do I have-- I'm the polar opposite of perfect and my life certainly isn't the way I imagined so who am I do dish out advice? I know for the most part how to pick and choose my battles but I have several wars ahead and not sure how to handle them. UGH. Why don't we ever listen to those around us? Myself included, in particular to M.F. who is definitely pushing it lately with me but that's a separate blog/rant all together.

Well, this is quite the awkward way to leave off but I'll let you know how things shake out. For now, I'll leave you with song titles that represent the different scenarios I face and you can glean from them whatever you want:

1.) I'm Not Okay - MCR
2.) Wrong Way - Sublime
3.) Face Down - Red Jumpsuit
4.) The Last Song -All American Rejects
5.) Don't Look Back in Anger - Oasis
