    I am guilty of it as well, but why?

    What is so wrong in our own lives that we can't believe someone else is well-off, happy or successful? Why must we spend all our time trying to find and (most times) manufacture fault in each other?

    Sarcasm I enjoy. If I'm not being sarcastic then I'm probably dead.

    I get angry with myself when I let cynicism dictate my feelings or actions though.

    I swear on my life I had these same thoughts today. Weird. Maybe it was because Chriza was running around the board today like a happy go lucky fairy and it made me wonder what we are all like irl. That our online persona's are definitely not 180's of our real life persona's.

    Some people need to feel superior toward other people because deep down they're scare, weak phonies.

    I'm nothing but positive vibes, sunshine and rainbows. When I fart, Skittles come out.

    I do nothing but help and bring joy to my fellow man and posters.

    :c
