It's funny how in life, we all have one person who is inherently genius at basically only one thing:
Pissing you the fuck off.
I hope this is true for all of us anyway, because it definitely is for me, and for a long time I took it personally.
I thought to myself: "Self, you have anger issues." or "Self, maybe you are just an intolerant asshole."
But over the years as I've gotten to know my Self better, and in tandem know this one person who is super good at making me crazy better, I've come to finally accept that it's not me.
They are the one person in my life who can send me into a blind rage in less than half a sentence.
They can make my face hot and bring back my childhood angry-stutter with one look.
They are, essentially, the most logical reason I would ever have to call one of my homies for bail money.
Do you have this person?
Do you have a Someone in your life, that either knows exactly where your buttons are, and seems to get a sick amount of joy and life-purpose from pushing them?
Do you have a person you know that is so mind-numbing stupid, but at the same time, so unbearably cocky, that you live for the moments when they are irrefutably proved wrong?
Sure, maybe you have a long history with this person, and part of your impatience with the sound of them converting oxygen to carbon monoxide stems from the years you spent as a helpless victim to their bullshit - maybe you're a little bitter.
But that doesn't change the fact that they're intolerable to you.
I think maybe what it comes down to is that once you dislike a person for whatever reason, whether justifiable or bitter and petty, everything they do annoys you.
The simple fact that they exist in your universe is maddening.
They lose the ability to ever be right or acceptable, in any situation, ever again.
I know I'm probably supposed to take the high road.
I know we're supposed to love all of God's creatures, and whatever.
But at the end of the day, I think it's ok to hate just one person.
Because we can't like everybody, and not everybody can like us.
And also some people are total fucking assholes.
