Do people "make you cry" or do you do that all by yourself?
It seems unfair, in a way, to blame the actions of others. Whether they be beautiful (by writing a piece of poetry, let's say, that rips your guts out), or ugly (by tactlessly bringing up sex-with-others and not sex-with-you, let's say, that also does some gut-related damage).
Is it too (name your philosophy here, I was pre-med) to assert that you own your own reactions? That, your response and your feelings are within your control? Or, if your feelings aren't, your reactions are?
Fuck it all.
Why are pirates so cool?
