The Power of Negative Thinking!

January 20, 2009

It can break up a friendship.

I’ve read that we most hate those traits in others that we see in ourselves.  Well, I know someone–someone I used to consider a friend–who is making me crazy with his crap attitude.

He fancies himself a Serious Intellectual and a Sensible Person, as well as a Tough Guy, in some respects, but he’s really a seriously privileged,  but bitter, joyless misogynist and (gulp!) libertarian.  While I am neither a misogynist nor a libertarian, and I’m certainly not a Serious Intellectual (or even a serious intellectual), but I am usually bitter and more recently, pretty joyless, too.

I need to work on this.  I don’t want to be like That Guy.

So thanks, That Guy, for the warning.


Therapy on Thursday.  Would it be bitter and joyless to de-friend him on FB?  I’m fuckin’ sick of his dour, smug, absolutist comments.
