The people around you take you for granted and don't know what they have until it's gone.
Sometimes the people still don't respect others when they are dead and that is the very sad part about life
True, if they've done something really bad.
That is so true but not always the case. Some people are just jerks and don't care about the dead at all.
People don't know how to appreciate someone until they realize how wonderful they are. They don't get it until it's too late:'(
why do celebrate people who have achieved success, rather than encourage others to succeed
Because we are liars and revisionists when it comes to protecting our emotional investments.
Because being respected is the opposite of being taken for granted. And that's what you are while you're alive.
That's only the case if they die on your TV screen. If you get what I mean.
Tell me about it - when Michael Jackson was alive he was always being made fun of and thought of as a big rich joke. Then he croaked and all these phony fools are kissing the ground that he walked on and crying and worshiping him and saying he was so great. Bunch of hypocritical jackas_ses.
I guess the ones who live get the respect in the end, right?
