Short Thought 50 (hard life)

Sometimes a person will make excuses for somebody else’s lousy behavior by saying they’ve “had a hard life.” To this I say, “Oh, have you had an easy one? Do you know anyone who has?”

“Hard life” is a very broad term, and moreover there are people who’ve had horrible, unforgivable things happen to them and yet they’ve retained their humanity and decency. On the other hand, there are people who, as adults, leave a trail of destruction behind them, but there’s no explanation in their past, no apparent hard life that could account for their behavior.
