Mostly I speak too soon because I have a hard time knowing when it's better to talk or just sit there being sympathetic.

It's a lot easier than you would think. Even easier than I thought it would be. Here's an example:

I do computer training at a school. Woman stops me in the hall one morning and says "Oh Madeleine I'm so sorry I didn't come to the work shop yesterday!"

Me THinking: huh??? I didn't even know you signed up. I'm glad you didn't come because you're a pain in the butt."

Woman continues: "I just have so much going on right now... I feel like there's too much to handle..."

Me at a total loss of what to say and shocked because this woman never talks to me and I barely know her. I blurt out: "Oh, I'm sorry."

Woman tears up almost loses composure: Thanks. You're so good. I knew you'd understand." and rushes off. Two days later she thanks me again.

On the bright side, you have your own Nine Inch Nails song! Huzzah!

I don't think you do. You young people always assume the worst. Things get ruined. You were there, other people were there, and there were random walk-throughs by random other people. And entropy tends to increase. *shrug* It's all soup, miss. You are not the chef, even if you add your own spices.

i may only be 19 years old but i certainly have had a full life up to this point. i realize i have (notwithstanding a freak accident/illness) plenty of years left in my life with a million different experiences (both good and band), etc. etc. etc.

i'm still shaping my beliefs about fate and life and experiences and everything else i might believe, but i do know that no matter what comes in the future we all always have the past. in my particular case, my past experiences strongly affect my daily life and my present/future experiences.

i dunno, your comment just made me feel like i don't have the right to feel the way i do just because i'm younger than you are. and i don't believe that to be true. i have just as much right as someone older to take from all my past relationships where, yes, i HAVE ruined everything each and every time...and make a generalization about myself and the way i act in present life and relationships.

yeah that totally should say "bad" not "band." that was an obvious mistake but it's bugging me.

that may be, but my spices make a lot of soups taste worse

I don't ruin things. What I do is I look super hot and somehow make other girls hate me. DAMN THIS BEAUTIFUL FACE OF MINE.
