I prefer not to be in love. It's too painful.
I seem prone to hurting those who love me. It's a psychological problem.
My long-term relationship or marriage has ended in complete disaster.
2. Do you enjoy life?
Yes, most of the time.
I have been blue for a very long time.
I feel hostility about life. I alienate my friends and family.
I often believe in nothing.
3. What kind of person are you developing into?
A regretful, stressed-out creature.
The verdict is still out. Life's a challenge. I am dealing with it.
Someone who is disturbed, uncertain, afraid.
A criminal. A drug-dealer. A thief.
4. Do you feel that love (of family, friends, or mate) has helped you?
It has hindered.
No one loves unselfishly. There's always a motive. So with that disclaimer...yeah, maybe.
Sure it has helped!
Love has too many shackles.
5. Are you able to love with passion? ...And with intimacy?
Yes, I am. Or at least have the potential.
Sexual passion, yes. Intimacy is too long a word.
I feel conflicted. Even if the person is good. Even if we're married. I feel...constrained.
No, I am not.
6. Have I learned anything from life, anything to help me?
Yes...to be Number One. To get my own way. To out-flank my competitors.
Nothing of true value, no.
I have learned about some of my weaknesses...some of my strengths. That can be useful.
I have learned only failure.
7. Do you still have dreams?
Only at night.
No...I have given up my dreams.
Dreams belong to the idealistic...the immature.
I still have dreams.
8. Are you proud of your accomplishments?
Sure, at least some of the time.
I am disgusted by them.
I feel like a total loser.
How can I be proud of them, when they've gone unrecognized?
