I Try to Avoid Pity Parties

For those who dont't see the point in them.. 150 People

    There's A Little Black Spot On The Sun Todaaaay...

    Yo... Reading melodrama

    and teen angst gets a bit tiresome. You understand? We all have down days. Just keep your head up. Self pity and wallowing in emotions just makes it worse...

    A Whine Tasting Party

    It's not that I do not have sympathy for the problems of others, when it is the same old story, over and over and no progress is made in the self-help department, my eyes glaze over and I stop listening.
