08/11/2017 On being relied upon

What makes you reliable? I have no idea. Then, is it good to be relied upon? I have a definite answer: No. When people around you regard you as reliable, they begin to exert a corrosive influence on you. Namely, they commence asking you to do anything you can, thus sapping you of time and energy. This all ends up by compelling you to feel your life is under the control of them. To be reliable is to be miserable.
