at this point, it’s all just math.  in trying to make myself happy, how many people do i hurt at once?  how many do i piss off?  what’s the ratio of what i do to how hurt they are by what i do?  if we plot my attempts to make everyone else comfortable on the x axis, and my own personal happiness on the y axis, do the two lines intersect?  are they asymptotic?  or do they just keep going on and on forever, exactly parallel, never even coming close to touching?

oh, and i’m so glad you read something i wrote and decided that i’m a prostitute.  that’s much more fun than the truth, isn’t it?
