They Don’t Want to See You Win

I’m sitting here watching the food network on break and there are tons of prescription drug ads, many of them for depression. I watch them and I think that for many years, the people in those ads were me. I don’t feel like that anymore. I’ve had a terrible year but I feel very driven, focused and happy.

Speaking of feeling driven, I was talking to a friend about my upcoming mechanic test and he said “good luck, but you’re not going to pass, nobody does.” That sounds like a challenge if I ever heard one. I never thought I was competitive and in a most regards I’m not but I get in these “oh really, fuck you” moods, I actually think thats how my photography hobby started up again to be honest. 😏

Things seem to have died down around here and I’m grateful but I want to ask a favor of my readers, if you’re reading this because you want to see me fail, this blog isn’t for you, it’s for me and please stop reading. It’s disrespectful. I can honestly say that I’ve been bullied way more as an adult than I ever have as a kid and if you have any human decency, I’m going to ask you to kindly leave. If you want to see me succeed and you’re rooting for me, then thanks, I won’t let you down. 😉💛

It’s hard to see but the thing I like most about this photo is the graffiti that says “They don’t want to see you win”, along the edge of the crater. It’ll always be one of my favorite photos.

  1. That right there just blew my mind!
    First of all, I can’t imagine anyone that knows you who wouldn’t be rooting you on.
    2nd, if they know you, they would already be aware that by doing so it only fuels your flame.
    3rd, ending with the photo! 💥
