    Having realised that people are just out

    and killed in his home the other day. He was 89 years young. He was shot and killed by a 14 years old boy. I feel sad for the both of them. My friend because he lost his life and the boy because he screwed up the rest of his life. All over 8 dollars. The last eight...

    When I was in my very late teens,

    someone told me that I “don’t suffer fools gladly”. This assessment of my character has haunted me ever since. It haunts me because, whilst I can see the truth of the observation, it has an inherent arrogance contained within it. Do I really see myself as somehow above...

    It feels better to think of ****** people

    as sick instead of evil people who are intentionally trying to hurt others. I kind of feel bad for them that they need the reaction they are trying to get out of others, and it reminds me of the saying "hurt people, hurt people"

    Discussions with religious people always end up

    with them insulting me. It's so funny cuz they keep talking about principles blah blah and connect it to religion then suddenly the true them appears. Morals and principles are morals and principles it got nothing to do with religion they even exsisted before religion.

    why some people think it's nice to be rude and bully people. you have no right to say stuff about people when you have no idea what is going on in their life so what challenges they have to face. I can't stand it.

    When I was younger I treated women poorly

    and they were standing in line to be with me. As I got older I realized the errors in my ways and started to treat them nicely and they now lie, cheat and hurt me. Is this a fact of life that we want what we can't have?
