I still have bitterness towards unpleasant schoolmates I run into every so often. A while back I recognized a classmate who I disliked and she was at the crosswalk. I just blew by her instead of yielding to her. Last month I ran into another classmate I never liked in the grocery line. I cut in front of her. She was too preoccupied with her two young toddler children to notice. She's is now a mom. But I still see her as that snobby girl who I can't stand in most of my classes from many many years ago. I'm pathetic.
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.
