  • Misanthropy is the general hatred, mistrust or disdain of the human species and/or human nature. I've displayed definite sociopathic traits but I don't think a sociopath knows that they're well... a sociopath. But I'm very aware of my hatred for humans.

    I hate how predictable they are. Like a rabid dog endlessly chasing its own tail, gasping for breath, foaming and salivating, eyes blood shot and red until its inevitable collapse. I hate how they're so caught up in such petty little problems. My peers obsess over relationships but they're stuck to a phone screen, texting, checking Facebook and taking narcissistic pictures of themselves - not to mention they have a Disney/Taylor Swift idea of what love is. They ask "How are you" only in anticipation to be asked the same thing; if anyone answers honestly they check out instantly. In some cases, they show concern, in preparation for when they will need something down the road in return - not out of actual caring, but bartering. And then to come full circle in the chase they are upset when some other human interacting by this same set of rules does something to hurt them. When this happens, dealing with it is never the solution though; intoxicating yourself and destroying yourself is the right thing because it's easy.
