I have now managed to alienate just about everyone who knows me more than casually. Wish I knew how to not do that in some way that doesn't involve bottling up my reactions to situations and events.
Oh, waaah -- people in hell want ice water, too. We get what we get
and by the time we do, it's too late to change anything.
(And who's to blame? Society? Hah! My parents? Hardly; they had three very difficult children and did their best. My ex? As if! Nope, it'd be the woman who looks warily out of the mirror at me every morning, dreading another day.)
