I posted the question "How did I become so bitter?" on Facebook. This is the comment stream:
Too much lemon. Go easy on the lemon next time.
not sure I could tell you how, but I could think of a few good reasons why
you're not bitter. the speed of your mind and the want in your heart can't be matched by the trudge of reality.
Could say the same
Funny, you don't look bitter.
Dig the i out and put an e. It will be - ok -
social media addiction
how do you think it happened?
Because what you are doing is nearly impossible. But don't give up.
Old age, happening to me too
it´s because they lied to you......all of them.....
do not become bitter Jacob, we need you and your thoughts/posts...go out and sit in the sun and so...
I keep asking myself this too
I was born this bitter!
hahahaha. wondering the same myself. but its no mystery really!
Just happens with age. As soon as you start freakin out about hearing people who were born in the 80s are are now over 18 you become bitter.
It's just a logical reaction, at a certain point.
I tried bitter, but that stuff'll kill you. So I'm angry. Keeps all of the other feelings alive. In theory, at least. Maybe.
Because you didn't eat enough butter
I think my bitterness actually peaked in my early 20s, for some reason.
People keep telling me yoga and meditation keep the bitterness at bay, but the bitterness goes so well with the paranoia that I'm on the fence.
Maybe because deep down you are too sweet. Try doing something bad on purpose? Balance things out...
Or walk around making sensory observations until you forget the bitterness for at least a moment.
Are you bitter, or cynical. One is a waste of energy -- the other, the result of intelligence. At least that's the way it seems to me.
Perhaps because you still give a shit.
You seem too busy. But then I may be not busy enough
Half Japanese-Put some sugar on it
Bitterness is the fate of the idealist. Sunlight, lots of fluids and a GG award can help.
Sit in the sun and close your eyes. Try to think about who you are, rather than achievements
It's usually because your ratio of leaf to water is wrong, or the water is too hot, or you left yourself brewing too long. Try using a thermometer and a timer, just to practice for a bit, and take yourself out of the water before you usually do.
One of the tastes we try when the others grow tiresome
i ask myself the same question somedays, guess it must be the business
brush your teeth?
I'm wondering what took you so long.
