I cannot believe I have been such a bloody fool, letting people in enough to where they can hurt me. Pain is anger is a threat. Pain turns just as quickly to rage, rage to hate and distaste, and eventually dissolves spectacularly back into pain. So when I cut myself out of the equation there is nothing left for cruel people to hurt but themselves. I never said I liked arrogance but you put it on display all the same.
I'm taking it back. I'm taking them all back.
