in the interzone now
Nobody's in love with themselves, believe me. I think it's part of the human condition.
Want me to list of some of my fealties?
Dude, I'm a drama queen who won't let anyone close enough to help me. I love myself to the point of complete and drastic arrogance, and can in the same breath decide I'm the least worthy human being on this planet. I abuse my body in every way imaginable, and then turn around and blame it on a handful of genetic and physical conditions I really do have. Oh, and I'm not a poet but I really want people to react positively to my poetry. Prolly the worst of all those.
Oh, and those are just a tiny bit of the things that I'm willing to admit out loud.
Everybody does things that will make them cringe to think about, and I'm almost entirely sure we've all been hypocrites. Often.
It's part of that wild ride called life.
And there is most definitely an AGE of centered self destructive habits. In the decade between about 15 and 25, it's when you're really starting to figure yourself out, so yeh you're going to stare at these things you didn't want to know at yourself, and that triggers harsh reactions. Really doesn't help if you get messed up in certain social groups or just with certain people who aren't as open to let you find yourself out.
And I think I'm going to shut up now, before I prove my mother right. I am not going to grow up to be a psychologist.
Hope your mood turns around and you start finding things to smile over. Like in Serenity's mirror challenge! Y'know there's something to like about yourself, so hurry up and grow to love it.
I will now quit talking in blanket statements and go to bed. Four hours after I previously stated I would do just that. Oops.
impress me, or be discarded
