    Pity

    Pity brings me nothing more than greater amounts of what I already have, self-hatred. I want to die, and beg I do soon. Nothing is here for me. Pity is a cuss to me. I hate it almost as much as I hate myself. People trying to cheer me up, tch, it makes me feel weaker than I am. I...

    Pity Rant

    If I was to go to someone and say I don't have a job perhaps they'd point me in the direction of a good one. So if I go to people and say I'm unhappy in some way, why do people just give me pity. Pity is not a solution! It is in fact even more of a problem!

    I'm sad. because my favorite person is leaving.

    and for some seemingly instinctual reason, I feel surprisingly peaceful about it. I'm quite happy for that man. it's refreshing to watch a him bumble away. I'm oddly inspired and even more 'in love' it's strange due to this plodding conspiracy from my reptilian mind... he's...

    I Know People Just Mean Well.

    I know pity from others doesn't fix things, but on the other hand, I feel good that they care enough to pity me.  When things go horribly wrong, all people can really say is "I'm sorry."  At least they care to try.
