Re: Suicidal Tendencies

And, of course, I'm "adding you to my foes list", as the system now describes the action of putting somebody on ignore. I know as many narcissists as I care to.

Re: Suicidal Tendencies

But, on the other hand, given certain circumstances mentioned elsewhere and your attitudes about them, I suddenly find that I don't give a rat's ass about your problems, any more.

Re: The person below me

TPBM is finally pulling out of the funk that they've been feeling lately No, no funk. Nothing of significance has happened, lately, so I've had no reason to feel better or worse, though the yearly event does remind me of how trapped I am by my current circumstances. I am, however, not depressed by ...

Re: The person below me

TPBM knows how to love deeply, give unconditionally and forgive while being thankful for the lesson. No. I doubt that there ever really was such a thing as love, and have long since learned the foolishness of giving to those who've shown no appreciation, even if I am supposed to pretend to believe ...
