    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."

    I have witnessed so much in my life.

    Some doubt whether I'm telling the truth; that my naturally corrupt nature prohibits me from telling the truth. It's quite the opposite in fact. I only lie for the entertainment of others' ignorance or simply because I want to do harm to you; which is very rare. My true goal is...

    Fallen In The Bitter Spiral!

    I never used to be like this, I used to be a happy-go-lucky person quite bouncy and giggly. Things started going downhill for me around the time I turned 17. A friend of mine needed me to stay with her for a weekend as her mum was going into rehab, her mum came back a few days...

    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 am a very bitter person simply

    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.

    It happens sometimes.

    Like now. When you can't seem to catch a break. Everything in your life goes sideways. Nothing goes right and no ones around to be the shoulder you cry on.

    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 don't want to hear about how happy someone is.

    I'm tired of hearing about others getting married, going on trips, buying a house, etc. I don't want to hear people talk about how happy they are with their lives when I'm miserable. I know it's wrong to feel that way, which makes me even more miserable.
