I wish that once, just once, when you tell someone that they’re doing something stupid, and later, after everything that you told them was going to happen actually came to fruition, and the person to whom you told it would happen realized that it had in fact happened just as you said it would; I wish that just once that person would listen to you again when you tell them that they’re doing something else stupid.
But no. Unfortunately, stupid people enjoy living in their delusions and foolishness, until one day they wake up and say, “Oh! Why have I been so stupid?! Why did I let my stubborn foolishness get in the way? What am I to do now?”
By then it’s too late, and the fool must suffer with the consequences – unless, that is, they are not allowed to suffer the consequences because others seek to protect them from learning life’s lessons.
And the cycle continues…
