I did read your post.
It's still you and your life, so it's still your responsibility. Your fault? Don't know. Own it, or it owns you.
You called me a liar.
You are incorrect.
If I were lying you could just dismiss me and go on with your day.
You've been beat?
Think you are special?
Join the club.
I've been through plenty.
Knew kids that had it worse but not many.
I still don't really see any reason to give you any sympathy or have any empathy.
You are the one who needed to vent your spleen about your personal specialized case.
I do understand that venting sometimes helps.
So let's be special.
No amount of empathy, sympathy or understanding ever helped me because I hated myself so much.
That's what my childhood taught me, to hate myself like nothing else in the world.
You say times change?
Times don't change.
That's still the key function of society. To sow self hate. Society excels at making people hate themselves. Always have.
Unfortunately, now they also teach entitlement along with self pity.
Now that's pure evil.
It's how they drag down the ones who got life figured out and grew up.
Bunch of zombies dragging down what's left of the living.
Gimme, gimme, gimme.....
Empathy is for widows,orphans, the terminally ill and lost freaking causes.
It just enables self pity
and self pity is home grown poison.
When someone looks at you and says, "There,there. It'll be alright. You poor thing..."
They've already given you up for lost. Written you off.
The last thing anybody should ask for is for someone to "understand" them.
The day they understand you is the day they own you.
And people want it so bad.
I figured out way too late how to get myself straight
I had to forgive them all... and had to mean it.
That was worse than every beating I ever got. Giving up my pride.
Then I had to forgive my self. Much, much harder to do.
Once I did it, I realized what an idiot I had been.
I did all of the worst stuff to myself. Once I figured it out, I realized it was my decision all along to be miserable.
Dragging all that hate and misery around is a choice we make.
Some people just learn to give it up sooner than others.
So I pissed you off.
It was intentional. It was special. Just for you.
So you can hate me with a clean conscience.
Back to where we were before I struck your nerve....
I'm fed up with all of the needy, greedy, no effort instant gratification,free college education demands from kids who can't even finish a basic high
school curriculum. Send em back to the eighth grade and make em sit in those tiny little desks with the 14 year olds.
The young people who have special circumstances and have no responsibility for their own lives are, of course not included in this rant.
They have my deepest sympathies.
