    Ex Catholic

    I'm an ex-sangiuated catholic. I feel my guilt comes from my childhood and my mum's and dad's religious views. I'm spiritual and prefer eastern spirituality. Guilt the gift that always gives lol

    I Love The People I Work For

    but what my _own kind_ has done to me has ripped me into shards _a while ago_. And I bet those idiots are so stupid they have no idea why I'd be angry at them... If I knew that the only people who actually had anything in common with me were such psychopaths I'd simply have...

    I wouldn't use the word "guilty"

    but I feel lazy when I'm unproductive. I cannot lay around or do nothing when there are things to be done or taken care of. It bugs me. I am loosening up a little as time goes by. Life is too short to worry about a sink full of dishes, a load of laundry or something minor that...
