I am so full of woe is me
I forgot about the woe in you
My addiction is to no one but myself
My addiction is forever.

I am selfish and I am sorry.


Author's Note: This is how I sometimes feel, not really today, but at other times. Hopefully others can relate.

OMG I can relate. I sometimes feel SOOO self absorbed. But really, how can it be any other way? It is only in our own skin that we experience, well, anything. Even when we think we are sympathizing, even when we think we are walking a mile in someone else's shoes - it's all in our own skin, and therefore, the addiction to ourselves is really "All that Is." I don't spend so much time beating myself up about it, because "All that Is" is a pretty cool experience to explore. *giggling*

Most of us are selfish to one degree or another. Those that seem not to be are frequently just hiding their feelings or desires. Alturism died i think a long time ago if it ever was born. But it is good to recognize when we are being overly selfish and we are all addicted to something.

"I am so full of woe is me I forgot about the woe in you" hmm. this whole thing sounds like it could be a verse or chorus of a song. Addictions are a funny thing. I luckily was able to stop myself from indulging in alcoholic behavior (I cannot drink socially whatsoever) before i escalated to destroying my life over it. but. anyway. this feels like someone banging their head against a wall to a desperate beat, and that's what i like about it
