Pop Psychiatry

Some dude I know said I displayed low self-esteem when I got all player-hatey on people in my social sphere. I said, "No. I'm not jealous of these fools. I just really like myself and I find it infuriating if not confusing that some people just don't hold me at the high level of esteem that I hold myself."

My mother once said to me with forlorning in her voice, "Why can't you believe that person likes you?" My answer, "Because that person hasn't made me the center of that person's world. Where are the alters? Where are the golden statues made in my image?"
