I found myself in my mid twenties becoming very cynical, and went on being this way for quite some time. I will say this, let some of it go. I know
it's hard not to see everything the way you already do, but trust me you have to let some of it just slide and concentrate more on what directly
influences you in your life. I found my friends and family distancing themselves because of my "attitude", but it wasn't an attitude to me it was my
perception of the world around me.
It took some time for me to be able to see that being cynical about everything was not only hurting my relationships, but it was causing me to be
almost slightly depressed I guess you could say. The bad thing is that cynicism is like a bad habit that is hard to break. It's easier to control if
you start concentrating on your life and not so much on the things around you that are less important.
Start with your family and friends and work on mending those relationships. Trust me that is the best place to start, and work on it from there. Go
out and have fun with your friends even if you have to fake it at first, It will come back to you, it's kind of like riding a bike in a sense.
