I posted a rant on Facebook last night that I’m reposting here as an ode to my friends. I’m very misunderstood, misperceived and misjudged by most. As such, I kind of teed off last night. I’m reposting the rant here because I feel it is worthy.
I just need to go on a bit of rant here. Forgive me. Please disregard if you wish, but I have to get this out of my system.
Yes, random stranger, to you I’m sure I seem like just some bitter, angry, cynical shell of a human, and that would be true. I am all those things. I’m jaded as fuck, cloaked in existential nihilism and philosophical pessimism. You would be correct in making those accusations.
Alas, aren’t we all at the end of the day? One has to turn a bit of a blind eye to the world to not be. This world is a scary place.
Alas, you see what you choose to see. Instead of hurling insults, etc. at me – talk to me. I’m shy but at the same time an open book. I’m quiet and reserved but I’ll still talk your ear off. I’ll tell you anything you want to know. I’ll shoot straight with you and I sure won’t sugarcoat, but talk to me. If you would stop trying to pick a fight with me for a minute and endure my short-lived sour shell, you’re sure to get to my sweet center.
To the few of you who have befriended me and stuck by me, thank you. I appreciate it wholeheartedly. I don’t have many friends in this life. It takes a special person to be able to power through my sour outer shell. I’m like a warheads candy I guess; most people can’t endure the first seconds of intense sourness. You all did.
And it is much appreciated.
So yes, this is to you, my friends. Thank you for sticking with me. Cheers!
