Common Denominator

It was said as a joke, but the thought process – on my end – shows how even in jest I’m prolific. That’s right folks; your boy can be genius even in his irreverence. An ex of mine asked why everyone he ever cares about turns out to be hyper-dramatic and an emotionally explosive asshole. I paused, took a deep breath and heard myself say, “Well, the better question is what or WHO is the common denominator?” The obvious implication being that HE is the link between all these hyper-dramatic, emotionally explosive people. So the moral of the story today is simple, if the SAME stuff happens to you OR you attract the SAME type of person all the time, maybe it’s time to consider the common denominator – YOU. Heed the advice and examine YOU. You’re the link between you and the repeating disasters.

On Blast
Be real with yourself – everyone can’t be wrong and even a broken clock is right twice a day. What repeating situation begs the question, IS IT YOU?

Keep passin’ the open windows…

Hmmmmm definitely agree with this post and I agree that I am the common denominator in terms of what I attract to me. I am a very strong minded person so I tend to clash with others who are equally as strong willed. So in a relationship I end up with people who I find are super emotional and it annoys me. Eh, I don't know. Lifes lessons I guess. Good post Cocoa!
