You know how people always talk about the journey being more important than the destination? People are stupid. Some journeys really suck and I don't care if I am learning some amazingly deep life lessons, I just want to get there. Really, who would rather be crammed in the backseat of a car listening to their parents bicker when they could be at the ocean? Was the patience I gained during the ride really better than the time I could have spent sitting on the beach?
Some people just like to romanticize everything crappy in life. "Remember when we lived in that tiny apartment and didn't have any money? Those were the good old days." Yeah, right. Those days sucked! Oh sure there were some good times, but if the past is the only time in your life that was good, you probably should get to therapy. Of course, once you're there, the doctor will tell you that it's not the destination, but rather the journey that is important.
