I believe that ancestry is pretty important because you get all your traits from the DNA of the people that came before you. My parents tell me that I came from a bunch of Scottish people, which I’ve been told in the media are pretty bitter people. I feel for those who are born from me, because they are 50% bitter. All they need is one bitter thought and the makes them 51% and that’s Bitter dominant.
What I also know is that I’m not Irish, despite the fact that I lather up in an Irish Spring every morning. Not being Irish is a problem for me, ever since I was young. Since I started here in November, I’ve literally been entered in like 12 contests. There were tickets to go to Hamilton, Post Malone, drawings for drones, and vacations to Southern Utah.
I’ve lost every one.
I’ve entered 1 lottery contest to win 800 million dollars. I lost that one as well. I’ve even put a nickel in the nickel slots, and didn’t win a dime. I entered a contest with my unfinished book to get it published. All I got back was a book filled with red squiggly lines and rejection stamped on it. I keep entering myself in a contest to have a better life and I keep losing at that too.
I think the universe is trying to tell me something. Keep trying, so you get rejected more. It’s fun for everyone to see the bitterness all over your face. So somehow, the universe will keep giving me messages of hope. They will send me motivational speakers to pump me up. They will keep putting contests out there for amazing prizes. They will keep enticing me will contests that seem easy. They will promise me riches and wealth untold.
Just so I will try again. And they will succeed. And I will fail. The universe or the force or whatever keeps getting me to try succeeds over and over again, because they know I will fail over and over again.
Not because I have fortitude or sticktoitiveness or a strong will. It’s because I have bitterness, the strongest force in the universe, and that bitterness will keep me trying to do something that I know I will fail at.
Bitterness will overcome luck everyday.
So, tell me in the comments. How bad is your luck and how has your bitterness overcome it everytime?
