    Giving Up...people Just Get Worse

    I didnt used to be quite this bad. Actually, there was a time that i was considered sweet, shy, really smart. I never had a chance to be happy. Actually, i had the chance to go to college--and did for 3 years--but got deathly ill (as in organ failure) and ended up defaulting...

    I show common courtesy

    but I'm done trying to "connect" with new people.I'm OK for a while but when I hear someone talk for long enough I eventually just think "**** yourself" and don't want to be near them.

    I Fit In, Absolutely Nowhere....

    This will be a rant, I must get it out. I grew up unconventionally, isolated, moved frequently and was mostly home schooled. My first experience in a public school in 5th grade was a nightmare, children can truly be evil, which is why I have always hated them. They are simply...

    I Think I'm Starting to Loose It.

    I want to stop hating people

    so much, but it's so damn hard... I like animals better than people, they are so innocent! Yet, they are being tortured by evil humans. I cannot deal with all this evil, it makes me feel sick! I also cry a lot. I don't want to live like this :-(

    Humans in general repulse me.

    It's not a lack of morals, faith, actions or what have you. It's the inconsistency in their convictions.

    I Have Known It For Years

    I'm a misanthrope.  Like many misanthropes, I do not dislike EVERYBODY.  But my tendency is to dislike the vast majority of the "public."  I do not care for "aquaintances."  Aquaintances bore me to tears.  Either someone is a true...

    I want to walk outside

    and see tumble weed rolling down the street, not fake, superficial scumbags in the making. I want to see people- Women, men, kids impaled, drowned, burned. Then I want to walk outside to a lonely quiet town.

    People are selfish and don't care about you.

    Relationships of any kind are pointless because ultimately people just use you. Even the mother-child relationship is selfish. Women have children because they want to. Nobody asks kids if they want to be born. If I was asked I would say no.

    for the human race, but I just don't like people. I don't like talking to them or being around them. I keep to myself and avoid most contact with people. I can go days without human interaction, but I'm happy like that. The less I'm around people the happier I am. I, however...

    Am I Misanthropic?

    I hate people, plain and simple. I am 22-years old and, while I try to maintain a normal social life and connect with other people, I can't help but feel so detached from humanity - like I'm viewing life through a dirty lens. I look at people and all I see are pathetic, stupid...

    How do I hate thee? Let us count the ways. I hate thee to the limits of my soul, stretched and strained by the chaos of life with Man. I hate thee with each dawn’s false promise of a better day but bringing more evil wrought by your hands. I hate thee fully, seeing each...

    I think most people are a waste of skin.

    I love humanity but hate people, they are so damn dumb. And something I hate about people, more than anything, is this obsessive need to control others. I don't have time to waste on stupid people with their idiotic, pithy, bullshit expectations.

    I'm Not Sure If I'm A Full-Blown Misanthrope

    I can't stand people. I dislike them very much, border-lining hate (if I'm not there already). They always disappoint and don't do what they say they are going to do. They only care about themselves (I have yet to meet someone outside of my immediate family that gives a...

    Realizations

    I've been a misanthrope since roughly 7 years old.  I was that odd kid down the street that was almost never seen outside, and who actively avoided playing with the other kids, usually out of a misunderstood (at the time) sense of disgust. I'm now 37, and only in the last 6...

    Misanthropy Is A Natural Reaction To People's Deplorable Behaviour.

    If you are an honest, decent person it's very difficult not to be a misanthrope.  For me, misanthropy was not a choice, it was a simple, natural response to the way most people are, or at least seem to be.  I've seen and experienced too much selfishness, egotism, narcissism...
