    it's over. the nature of my relationship with a

    good man I must say no to if I am to have the courage to say what is and what will not grow in my world. the judgment card is in effect but denial will nollie that back swing on the pendulum. focus, function, dominance, transcendence. just how much force will it take? well, I...

    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.
