    Oh, How Things Can Change

    I would definitely not call myself a cynic today. I've had too many beautiful things happen to me in my life to become jaded and hard.  It's turned out that some off those hurtful, embarrassing, horrifying experiences yielded gifts and opportunities and discoveries.  I've...

    I Tried So Many Times

    I really did. I gave someone a chance again. I trusted again. I gave again. And I got slapped again. The only person I can trust is myself.

    I have always been a bit cynical.

    ..I have always had issues with people not liking me because of my weight or whatever, so that's what started it, I think. Then as I have gotten older & more **** has happened in life...I have become even more cynical...I honestly didn't think that could happen. I will never...

    Yea

    Yea, it seems like I get more more cynical by the day.  One time I went to my best friend "I have really turned into a cynical pessimist" his response was "you always have been."  True I've always been on the cynical side. But I have gotten worse...

    When Did I Become So Cynical?

    I used to be an optimistic person.   I used to believe in the possibility of love, and "living happily ever after" with the "right" person.  Yesterday, I went to a wedding.  It was horrible.  I couldn't stop crying - right...

    Full Of Poop

    I used to be so trusting but I have been lied to so many times that I have to question even things that I believe could be true. Many times I don't trust myself and think that most people are full of poop these days.

    Brakes

    I've been reading these posts about becoming more cynical, not being able to trust, etc., and I'm also having my brake pads and rotors replaced on my car today. Unrelated? Perhaps not. 3 years ago, if you had asked anyone who knew me to describe me, I'm positive that, "happy...

    I Wish I Wasn't

    It would be awesome to sit here and tell you that life is not making me resentful, bitter even cynical. Yes sir indeed, it would be cool if that were true!

    Is It Really Such a Bad Thing?

    I'm not sarcastic. The truth is just that ironic. Okay, so maybe I'm sarcastic. So what? I'm still an affectionate person and I still get along well with everyone. I don't have issues with authority figures or anything. My sense of humor just happens to be dry. It's the only...
