People will do and say anything if they think it will give them the slightest advantage. People will shit on anyone if they think it’ll make them more popular. People will lie about anything if they think it will allow them to avoid taking responsibility. They’ll play word games and rules-lawyer and will never admit to just doing the thing.
And I was so naive and stupid I got taken advantage of pretty much constantly by people like this.
Took me ages to understand that morality.
