    I am disillusioned yet again.

    After the last time I thought that I saw my reality with the utmost clarity... But I was wrong. I simply traded one illusion for another. I believed the promisses and lies that this world has fed me. How wrong I was. I believed that the past three years of my life meant...

    "Errare humanum est. Perseverare diabolicum"

    (Lucius Cornelius Seneca) To err is human, but to persist in "error" is diabolical... Everything is lost: joys, emotions, laughters, crying, secrets, closeness, desires, fantasies, intimacies, vents, efforts, small things... a path built in years, burned with contempt and...

    I Need to Grow Up

    I am very disillusioned.  You'd think that I've had learned by now not to be.  I'm old enough to not be naieve or gullible, but...  The saddest thing is:  I'm always telling those younger than myself not to be.  Isn't that a "Kicker"?

    Fallen Out of Love

    What am I disillusioned about? Well the church for one, specifically the evangelical church - they come off all santified and pious, but unless you are a certain of christian, you don't fit.  I've been to so many evangelical churches and always felt like I was being pulled...

    It's the story of my life....

    It's the story of my life.  There is no reality?  The world is a giant TV screen with nobody seeing what goes on behind the scenes.

    I Wanted to Believe

    Want is not enough. All the good has always been destroyed. When it's once or twice... But when it's all the time? I'm starting to wonder if it's reasonable to want to believe. I've been proved wrong. No, honesty, kindness, hope, and action, I mean, do it, doesn't bring good. I...

    And What a Wonderful Thing It ...

    And what a wonderful thing it is - the illusion is dissolved, the myth is broken. There once was a philosopher of religion who prattled on and on about broken myths, all about how we could still have faith in the ethic if not the fables that the various world religions preach...

    Depresive Realism

    I don't consider myself depressed, but it's interesting that sad people have a more realistic version of reality then optimistic people...(as according to latest New Scientist) psychologists call it 'depressive realism' I keep myself out of depression somehow, but I am...

    A State of Confusion

    Everyone and everything I've known in my life that presented themselves as grounded in principle have invariably turned out to be full of ****. Like most of you, I'm no stranger to betrayal.  I've been betrayed over and over again, by family, friends, and the woman I...

    Human Relationships

    Every now and then I feel disillusioned about the people around me (or just people in general). With most of my close, long-term friends now living in other cities, as I meet new people these days, I see more and more the superficiality and instrumentality of human relationships...

    I Am So Disillusioned ...

    I am so disillusioned by the human race in general!  I am constantly amazed and hurt and disgusted by the way people will pretend to be your friend and then totally trash you behind your back.  Small town gossips, may they rot in hell!

    Don't Know What I Believe Anymore

    For years now I have been intellectually active, and in all this time I have invested a great deal of energy in the world of ideas. All along I have held certain things to be basic and essential. I always believed in democracy, I was always politically left-wing and I always...

    I Don't Quite Understand It

    At one pint during childhood, everything is new; every single fresh piece of information about your surroundings- about the world- is fascinating. I wonder where that rampant sense of curiosity and genuine interest disappears to over time. It seems like we are brought up in...

    Seek The Truth...

    It has become obvious by now that this world is not a place where I belong.  In nature I'm ok, plants, animals and me get along just fine.  But when it comes to interactions with my own species, I just can't bring myself to relate.  I hate the drama and the deception, which...

    I wouldn't say that.  Sometimes things don't go my way when I'm sure that they should've but I'm more reality based than anything.

    Uh, Hunh

    Disillusioned, disenchanted disappointed, brought down to earth, to have my ideals destroyed. Yes! The only direction I can go from here is up.  But, I can work with that…

    Is Annillusion dis-illusioned?

    Hmmm...I'd probably say "yes" to that...but to greater or lesser degrees...depending on the day, where my head is, etc., etc.  Tied in to current family circumstances.
