Setting up camp in a Dark Place

Posted on Sat, Feb 6, 2010 at 12:19 PM

I don't particularly believe in 'negative energy' or a dark aura or whatever, but I know that when you’re constantly down, you drag the world down with you.

I have tried relentlessly to cheer you up- not in an annoying sunshine pusher sort of way- but as a friend who has been in dark places, understands the difficulty, and who will always provide you with sound advice.

Why you chose to ignore this advice puzzles me. I know, sometimes, we all like to be in a dark place. Admit it, sometimes we all like to be foul for a few hours, or a whole day. But when this goes on for weeks...

I want you to help yourself, because I'm selfish.

I like being your friend, but your constant negativity and self directed insults are breaking me.

An ex-smoker who befriends a chain-smoker is not a healthy relationship.

You don't realize this; I have never told you any details of my life- you've never asked once! I have extreme issues of my own and have tried so hard not to let my negativity beam through because I know how much it effects people around me. I know how it affects me.

Please Please Please take some time out and examine your heart. Metaphorically.

---At this point, I feel justified in my selfishness- I matter too.
