Here’s the thing: everyone has ulterior motives. Everyone. No one says or does things out of the goodness of their heart. They always have a hidden agenda. They always want something from you. Your job is to figure out what it is.
Even your family will stab you in the back if given the chance. People are awful, awful creatures whose only goal is self-advancement.
Watch Your Back
For the most part, that’s as far as it goes, but there is a sub-group that actively seeks out ways to undermine others. These people will throw you under the bus at the drop of a hat. They’ll make sure your life is miserable. They want you to fail, and then they’ll take a celly pic and post it online, so everyone else can “like” it, and comment on how much of a goddam loser you are.
Bottom line, don’t trust anybody. Even your priest will find a way to keep a boot on your throat, to keep you from ever advancing. He’ll find a way to make you pay.
