Stupid, stupid, stupid...

I did something stupid tonight. And I knew it was stupid when I did it. I watched myself from outside my body doing the stupid thing. I said to myself, "Look, there she is, doing that stupid thing again." But I did it anyway. And then cried after about how stupid I was to do it.

Now I laugh because I know the girl that did it isn’t really who I am. She’s just a girl learning the ropes of life, trying to find her way back to herself, to who she really is. And when she knows better she’ll do better. Until then, I’ll watch her do stupid shit and I’ll be there to carry her home after she does it.

It's an interesting thing, watching yourself in 3rd person, eh? Whether it's something stupid, or spectacular, being a spectator in your own life is just kind of bizarre, yet fascinating.
