    Constantly. Sneering helps, obviously, but then, too much sneering gives you wrinkles. Dilemma?

    Yeah, but stewing in it gives you heartburn and repels people.

    I know I have from time to time, but it's when I focus on what everyone else has instead of what I have. I just remind myself of what I have, be thankful for it and it usually fetters out.

    That, and I add a pinch of confectioner's sugar.

    Feeling Better is just one letter away from feeling bitter.

    Bitter of what?. Got to be more specific. Only then we can find the cause and find the way to feel better.

    I saw this T-shirt once that made me do a double take; it read: "I'm not just getting older, I'm getting bitter"

    What counts as "bitter"?

    (I'm not being facetious.)

    Is it being judgemental? Pessimistic? Is it clinging onto resentment?

    When my last boyfriend and I were having problems, and I wanted to continue working on making it better, and he did not, I guess I felt "bitter" toward him for a while.

    Does that count?

    You don't question the bitterness, you embrace it. It's the only thing that separates us from the beasts of the field. When the mountains themselves pick up their skirts and skip down to the sea, then shall I let go. For now, there is gin to be drunk and people to be resented

    Litally:

    You just described yourself with your bitterness towards Canada and all other non-US countries. You even called Canadians NAZIS in your post under the "Ontario Miniter.." thread.

    We choose what to think about or dwell upon and so I ask myself:

    What am I grateful for?

    I am grateful that there are lots of "tops" to goad.

    I am also not feeling particularly bitter about anything today.

    I've found bitterness has taken up too much time and energy in my life. I should really be bitter about that..........

    My religion is the Absurd, so I try to just laugh at things that might otherwise make me bitter, and that has worked well so far. I like to be as sunshiney as possible all of the time, even in the face of cold hard depressing facts. Big deal. Everything goes by quickly--both love and sorrow. Bitterness makes us frown and look bitches, and I find that unattractive in a man, so I definitely don't find it attractive in myself.

    Sometimes, when someone I love says something about gay people (I'm closet) I sart to feel like shit, then I go home and see the buddha atop my desk smiling, I smile back and I feel better, chatting with my online gay friends also brings good karma. But Buddha's smile do it most of the time. I just can't avoid laughing as if I and that statue share some private joke I'm unaware of.
