I am not a %
Below is one of my favorite cartoons. Yes, I realize that the artist is trying to make fun of those who believe in bettering themselves.
Huh? Rather than demonize those we envy, why not try to become enviable?
Honestly, I am tired of being told that anyone who succeeds is “bad” and the great masses (the 99%) are somehow better for being lessor. Dragging others down to your level only makes us all worse off.
I am not a victim. I am not a %. I will not hide behind every stupid, crippling excuse to remain in a place I don’t want to be.
It’s ridiculous and pathetic that it’s now in vogue to be in need.
