I Dont Want Pity, I Want It to Be Ok Again

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 150 People

    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.

    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!
