    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.

    I Am Bitter Because

    ...I have something against the world. Everyone seems to treat me badly, nothing ever seems to go right, these bad experiences have been going on for a while now. This is what makes someone bitter, they lose hope, lose happiness and hold it all inside. They are angry and ...

    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...

    I haven't been on in a long time,

    but last time I was I wrote about how a friend of mine committed suicide. It's been months, and everything just keeps crashing down around me. I feel so bitter and furious and depressed at times, and lately it's almost enough to cripple me. When my friend was alive, I'd been so...

    I'm jaded, bitter, but not a quitter.

    I've been used, abused, cast aside There's more than pain behind these eyes Stubborn, resilient, defiant to the end It's what makes you want to be my friend Until you get a peek inside Where all my screaming skeletons lie I'll have you running for your life Make no mistake, my...

    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 get depressed,

    I get bitter. Because of getting dumped and stabbed in the back by someone that tricked me into loving him, I am now getting over my sadness and getting bitter. The bad thing is that my mother is the one who feels the effects of my behavior. I have become totally snappy. I...

    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."

    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...

    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...

    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 :(
