People that molded you and taught you your foundation as you grow up, might actually be complete idiots, which you wouldn't realize until you get older.
My uncle blurted that to me one night when he was drunk and playing a ninja turtle video game with us. I think I was like 6 or 7. I completely disregard what he said as I was just focusing on enjoying the video game. But for some reason I really remembered that moment.
What goes up, will inevitably come back down. Whoever you have to step on when you go up, you will be at their mercy when you go down.
The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.
Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.
