    I Smile Though My Heart Is Aching

    yeah just like the lyrics from a song. I think smiling is one of visible positive reactions. It's like telling others that you're alright and have nothing to worry about because i can handle everything. You force yourself to smile though you're bleeding inside. Because i felt...

    Smell The Coffee

    Things are changing.  Crumbling, I think, all around.  It isn’t just the economy or politics, the colds and flu, it’s me too.  Plates I’ve left spinning precariously, with merely a quick flick of the stick to keep them balanced, are teetering, ready to plunge to the...

    Sincerity

    I'm creating a positivity zone in my life and I can't have even false positivity be a part of it. I work in a field where I meet the sick, the needy, and those in social environments so toxic that it can really drain a soul. I don't want that in my friendships. I have a choice...

    Fakeness!

    If you feel positive by all means express that, if you don't but are using positivity help you get through a hardship I understand that too. Yet I have noticed that many I think in correlation to the expectations in society to "keep it fake" are falsely stating and...

    Just Be Real With Me

    I think I've written some stuff under other headings on EP that belong in this group. I am weary of people who are single serving friends, who can only communicate in sound bytes and platitudes. "It's all going to work out in the end!" Ya know what? Maybe NOT. I think...

    and burn them in a huge bonfire!  Most of them are just garbage fit for kindling lol. Seriously, though, I'm sick of the cookie cutter way they look at things. As if the writer thinks they know you personally when they don't.   I'm sick of the way people mindlessly parrot all...

    Just Say What You Mean

    If you say something raw, honest, truthful don't ruin it by apologizing afterward. If you are going to shred someone don't say "Bless their heart," afterward. If you have something to say, just say it, don't get all mealy-mouthed about it. Political correctness has gone...

    Positivity Is Not On This Planet...

    What I don't get is when people say "Everyone's a winner!" The truth is: No one wins. We are born with nothing, we die with nothing. Every one of us. Bottom line. The only winner is "The Creator"/ God.

    When I do that I feel even worse about myself and the world around me. I want to be those individuals that are always happy. Always smiling about nothing lol. It may sound silly. But I want to be that happy. Even when pessimism and negativity comes my way. One day I'll get there...

    False positivity is like making people eat mud telling them it's chocolate. "Put away that frown, remember you're enjoying yourself." I hate that. Why can't people just show it when they feel like crap? You'll have to admit: sometimes the world is a real crappy place to...

    At Least Let Me Finish My Sentence.

    Another phone call to chat about the weather. Answering these calls is similar to hearing a telemarketer. Is this a joke? What value can I find in a friendship this shallow? There's not much here to pursue. I'm not heard or understood and there's no attempt to try relating...

    With someone in particular on my mind, I ask these questions aloud: What the **** is your problem? Why can't you just say what you feel? Why must it be a prepackaged response? A soundbyte is not acceptable, I expect you to reply to my direct question. I expect you to compile a...

    Sooo Tired

    I always put on a happy face when I see old friends or when I'm around the general public, and I'm sick of it. I've decided to just feel what I feel when I feel it, and if others don't like it, well they can go away. I'm tired of wearing a mask all the time.
