Well, the longer I live, the longer I think this is the worst idea.
The concept gives my actions, and to a larger extent, the actions of others, a deeper meaning.
Well as far as I can tell, the deeper meaning ... isn't good.
Anything I am involved in, anything I try to help in, ends in tears.
Mine, yours, theirs. The outcome is the same.
Am I then to conclude that the common denominator begins and ends ... with me?
So if this common pearl of wisdom is to stand, then I am to blame, for my depression, for my wife's anxiety, for my best friends lethargy, my brother's divorce, for my team's demise, to my pasts disintegration, and to my friendships end?
So as you can imagine, I'm not a fan of it.
I sure hope I'm wrong.
