    So...What Is It?

    What really pushes your buttons? I get pissed off most often when people attack me by throwing my own weaknesses in my face. As if I didn't already have problems with those weaknesses. Then you have to bring them up in an argument just because YOU feel attacked even though...

    More Than a Few Unfortunatly

    The X is the biggest one because he knows exactly where they are. He can take me from hero to zero in a matter of minutes. I've never met anyone with that much control over me and sadly it works every time. The amount of sad and hate and negativity he leaves me with is just more...

    GRRRR!!

    What really pushes my buttons lately? The way some people insist on rating other people's attractiveness on a scale of 1-10. Or on a scale of anything for that matter. As if a persons worth can be reduced to a mere number based on looks. If I hear one more person...

    Oooh What Does This Button Do?

    Gee well, I've never really had them pressed so I don't know what they are. I've gotten upset but never so much that I've gotten angry or pissed off. I pray I never find out which is the button that must not be pressed.
