The truth

People are only Human

At times of frustration and disappointment with people, a friend of mine utters, "Human beings, what a strange concept!". The world would be definitely be a much better place. Being in touch with reality means accepting that other people are only human. They are not perfect. Our failure to remember this can cause us a great deal of frustration and dejection. We expect people especially our friends and relatives to be without flaws. Our expectations of other people are what we allow to hurt us in the end. People have many shortcomings that surface unexpectedly from time to time.
Are you wrong in saying that many human beings can be quite ignorant? Apparently not! Ignorance is never out of style. It was in fashion yesterday, it is the rage today, and it will set the pace tomorrow. You will inevitably find that many people will hurt you in the event you let them. Certain critics will try to burst your bubble and knock you off your cloud. They will try to interfere with your plans and projects even when they have no direct interest in them. While you are trying to light the fire in your life, someone will try to put it out for you.
There are many more frustrating human traits. Friends and relatives will let you down, even though you just directed several special favors their way. You will find that many people don't play by the same rules as you. Some will drive you crazy because they change theirs minds from one minute to the next. You and I agree that there are even certain people on this earth who probably shouldn't be here.
But keep in mind that the roles are often reversed. You are also human and you will occasionally, or even regularly, let other people down. You will screw up and you will do dumb things and you will upset others. You won't meet someone else's high standards regardless of how hard you work at it. 
You can accept that rocks are hard and water is wet. Then make allowances for the fact that people are only human. If they weren't, life would be different. Reality dictates that you or I can't change human nature. People are what they are and not what we think they should be. Sure, many people are more dishonest, rude, unreasonable, inconsiderate, and ignorant than you either me. That's just the way it is.

P/s Spend a lot less time judging people to determine what they are doing wrong. You have more important things to do with your life! Leave the judging of people!

There are no guarantees in life.
You don't really know where a road will lead you until you take it. There isn't any guarantees. This is one of the most important things that you need to realize about life and the choices you will make. Nobody said that choosing to do the right thing all the time will always lead you to happiness. Loving someone with all your heart does not guarantee that it would be returned from the other person. Gaining fame and fortune does not guarantee happiness. There are too many possible outcomes, which you really can't control. The only thing you have power over is the decisions that you will make, and how you will act and react to different situations.
