Another Fact Of Life That's Difficult To Comprehend
Influences. Life is full of 'em. And there must be something inherent in human nature that allows bad influences to carry far greater weight than good influences. There has to be.
Not one human in the history of humans has had to put up much of a fight against the temptations of a good influence. It's always been, "Sign up for a Pilate's class? Naw, I think I'll sit in front of the tube and drink some beer."
That's because bad influences are coercive to the Nth degree. They come at you with all the firepower, speed, and relentlessness of a Blitzkrieg...but insidiously subtle like.
Not really fair when you think about it. Good influences should be given the same ability to overwhelm us as bad influences have. Wouldn't it be cool as all get out to be able to say, "I don't know what came over me - I just couldn't stop eating low fat, nutritious food and going to the gym 5, 6 days a week, and now I've ended up fit and healthy."
