or whippin post for anybody...even ole Dad.
What that means is...a doormat gets stepped on...people wipe their dirty feet on it then walk away..it often gets left out in the cold.
You ain't no doormat!
Yer a caring human being that deserves respect....That said,
....don't count on it. We humans are famous for shitting on each other....and we gotta million good excuses to do it to each other....and they all stink to high heaven.
If ya feel it ain't right...it ain't. Can you change other people?...nope! Hellofa deal huh? You can't even change how you feel about it.
You can only control what you think and do about it. You can only play the hand yer dealt. Like Luke Skywalker not gettin sucked into the darkside no matter how much hate and anger were his for the taking...and rightfully so.
Doormats take shit...are you gonna have to take shit? Yep....Wait a minute...that don't make sence....no it don't. Not until you step back and see the bigger picture. Volunteering to wash someones feet with no thought for what you'll get paid puts you in control of the dirt. It doesn't stick to ya.....ya flush it....
So now ya graduated from doormat to washroom attendant....I know I had a point when I started this.....studying sheetrock repair might not be a bad career move.
Walk in the sunshine
