    A Turtle Without A Shell...

    This is me. "A turtle without a shell."  Isn't that funny too imagine!  lol  It's so important to laugh. My sister tries to teach me the significant importance of laughing ever day.  It's gonna sink in, I tell myself.   Recently, I realized the meaning of bitter for myself...

    It Damages People, But Keeps Them Warm.

    The last time I turned bitter was during the last relationship pretty much ruining any chances to get her back. It was really real, we had the exact same interests, and were close friends at the same time. I still can't believe my old self effectively haunted my new selves and...

    Bitterness Is Good..

    I am bitter.  It has taken me a long time to admit that one.  It means that he got one up on me.  right?  WRONG.  It means that I was done wrong.  It means that I remember the wrong done to me.  I have forgiven it, but won't forget it.  I...

    I think of myself as a relatively nice person,

    I am not the most generous but I try to help when I see someone in need. I dont mind helping a complete stranger,thats the kind of person I am. My problem is that however nice I feel I am in my heart sometimes there is annoying nagging feeling in my heart. I feel a bitterness...

    Wishing Everything Was Different

    For as long as I can remember I have been miserable with the present. I live in the past and feel helpless with the wrong choices I have made. It has made me a very bitter human being and I resent myself for feeling this way. Where others find happiness and new possibilities I...

    My senior year of high school made me realize

    how much I hate everyone and everything. I battled depression on my own everyday just to go to school and be told how I don't matter and how I'll never amount to anything. I always used to think that my "friends" never felt that way but then I realized that they do. Everything...

    Really bitter. The past 15 months have made me

    this way. I get mad more often. I yell more often. And I don't care how mean I sound anymore. So for those who try to "help" don't be suprised if you get the worst side of me. I just get more and more bitter everyday. And I will be bitter for the rest of my life :(

    I can feel the bitterness resentment

    and hostility like poison in my veins consuming and flourishing as the rest of me decays. If only there was a way to suck the poison from my being. Sigh.

    At 42 I Am Truly Jaded And Bitter

    At two years old my father gave me to his mother to raise.  Not because he couldn't afford to.  Because he was a selfish bastard who didn't want the responsibility.  My mom who was completely financially dependent on him, didn't have a say.  Ironically they went on to have...

    I'm the most bitter ******* ***** most of the

    time. I have serious issues with relationships but when other people are in them I just want them to fail. So that way someone will be as lonely as me. I'm ****** up, emotionally.

    In Ways I Cannot Pretend to Understand.

    It's a problem, especially since every new interaction in my life pays a toll because of it. When asked where my sense of romance is I usually refer to one of my favorite quotes from Henry Rollins on the subject: "It's been beaten out of me."
