Two Kinds of People

There are Two Kinds of People:
Those who think, “I don’t want anyone to suffer like I did.”
And
Those who think, “I suffered, so why shouldn’t they?”

And then they wonder why people don’t like being around them.

Your job in life: to be the first kind of person, and maybe, just maybe, help the second kind of person to get past that.
