    I Feel Guilty For Existing

    I have a habit. A habit of apologizing over everything. I'm not the kind of guy who can say "**** it, **** the world, **** humanity" and live life without caring what other people think of me. I believe it's impossible to not care what others think of you because at the heart of...
