It is often said that misery loves company; well perhaps it wants companionship, a helping hand so it realizes that it is not alone. A good thing right; wanting to share in someone’s pain and trouble?
But what about a person who is miserable and wants to make your life miserable as well? He/she is not happy, and so, you must not be happy. What do you do? Ignore them? Try not to be around them as much as possible? Let them have a piece of your mind in hopes that they will leave you alone? Pray?
