This is an extremely ironic post especially looking at my last one, when I talked about how much I’ve grown in the past week.. but we all have flaws, and this is one that we all have.
My pit person drives me crazy.
What is a pit person you ask? It’s a concept, that mentioned in How I Met Your Mother, but goes well with Silence of the Lambs
The concept goes like this: Everybody has a person that drives them so crazy that they would throw them in a pit. What it comes down to is that you become so obsessed with someone that you end up losing your mind. I think I’ve realized that everyone has a pit person, whether or not they want to admit it, because no one wants to admit they’re a bad person, or that they have an unadulterated hatred towards someone.
- Is it the person who told you that you’re never going to succeed?
- Is it the person who just always wishes badly for you and you just don’t understand why? (for me, yup, this is the one)
- Is it the person who just makes you question yourself and feel rotten all the time?
I don’t think you know who your pit person is until you have the chance to push them in.
I think we go through phases – when we come at peace with the fact that this person isn’t as bad as you think they are.. and then of course others when you think there is nothing possibly good about this person and you don’t understand how and why everyone else loves them so much
But ultimately, the only person in that pit, is yourself, which means there’s only one person who can get you out.
I hope that maybe one day I can throw a ladder down and climb myself out of this pit I’ve created, but until then, I guess just take it one day at a time.
