A Minute to Myself (189)
The System Speaks



I despise the psuedo-religious who feel it necessary to continue to hammer away at my head with their beliefs and how they can "save" me even after I have made it clear that I am very comfortable and "safe" in my deism.
Oh, and then there are the brain trusts of the group who think deism has something to do with devil worship!

I despise manipulators. I despise that their thinking that they better than everyone else, and that causing people harm and pain is brings them satisfaction.

Well said, Laura. I have a few female family members who get that exact satisfaction and it really pisses me off.

My first thought to your question was expectations. I couldn't specify those expectations on my own, but it's those expectations placed by these women just to cause my psyche harm. The guilt. I'm despising the guilt they try to impose on me.

Liz A, yes--manipulators always come out clean because they manage to make us question ourselves, while they never do. I hope they're not close family members.


Life is too short and too precious to waste it trying to one up master manipulators - I'm not any good at it. So, I simply do not associate with those people be they family members or co-workers, etc. While I can't completely avoid some of these people, I do refuse to engage in conversation beyond "hello, how are you?" Don't forget to smile and then move on to someone you like and who makes you feel good.
No one is better than you.
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."


I despise being used and manipulated; being treated like I'm an idiot who is completely unaware of the game being played.
I despise people who lie, cheat, and steal their way through life and always seem to come out on top when honest people continue to get burnt and have to struggle for everything.
I despise sloth, ignorance, procrastination and inaction.
More than anything I despise passive-aggressive behaviour.


We all seem to be of like minds - we should start a commune, hang out together and screw everybody else! :)


Republicans with "family values."

Geo, you're on a roll here. Here here! on your list. Except for the procrastination, I have a tendency to leave for tomorrow what could be done today.

rockync--I love your idea. I guess this is the online version of the commune. Like minds gravitate to each other.

Ricardo, I read today about a new addition to the list. Said family values politician married an intern, and then cheated on her with another intern. Family values, indeed.
