    How Do I Hate Thee?

    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'm not always a misanthrope.

    Maybe it's just me but I get tired of arguing with people over the most blatantly obvious points. Other humans seem to have no idea that they are smiling and being "optimistic" about things which are causing many others misery. For example, how many of us are currently...

    you know why I don't like reading

    Im a Misanthropist

    i have been nearly forever its caused by a deep inbred cyncism. Misanthropy is a general dislike, distrust, or hatred of the human species, or a disposition to dislike and/or distrust other people. The term is also applicable to those who self-exile themselves or become loners...

    I can never find the good in any, only a select few. I also don't have many friends because of this. Currently the only people I can say that I like are my boyfriend, and one friend I have that lives in a different state. They aren't like typical people. Everyone else...I prefer...

    Proud Misanthrope

    I'm proud to be a misanthrope. I feel it's an enlightening, motivating, and positive state of mind. Therapy will try to convince you that it's "unhealthy" and that you should try to connect and form loving relationships with the outside world. That's because of conformity and the...

    I go through phases of misanthropy.

    But I don't think I've hated people this much before. I wasn't born a hateful and resentful person. I was born with a huge, caring heart and a happy and healthy mind. But the people I am stuck with make me want to never leave my house again.

    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...

    The dictionary definition

    for misanthrope includes the phrase “hates or scorns mankind.” I would prefer a definition that includes the phrase: “is profoundly disappointed in mankind.”

    I hate humans so much.

    There was only one time when I can honestly compare my love for a human to the love I have for an animal. However, it is not unconditional love. He could fck it up.
