The Thrill of Cynicism, the Agony of Rage

It's so easy - being cynical. That old "been there, done that" attitude. Feels really cool. But it's very condescending, and it's really tough to be around a cynical person. I know. Because I'm cynical as hell. And trying not to be, so I can live with myself.

Then there's rage. So destructive, so stressful. It can eat you up inside; it can kill you. I look back at some of the things I've written when I've been at the peak of rage, and it makes me cringe. And I tell myself, don't get so angry again, look at what it did to you. Been there, done that. No need to do it again.

Damn. I'm being cynical again.
