DISCUSSION

I realized last night/this morning that I can never have a girlfriend or anyone I care about live with me.

When I came home from work last night I was so full of anger and frustration at my job and life in general that while trying to put away dishes I grabbed the plastic strainer and smashed it against the counter. Pieces of plastic went flying everywhere. It was a moment of pure rage. Like the monster living inside broke free for a second.

I can only imagine what would have happened if I had a girlfriend/wife/kid/pet in the apartment with me. Would I have thrown them against the wall instead? Would I have punched them in the face for no reason? It is hard enough to keep the motivation to live every day. If I hit someone I love I think I would have no choice but to walk out of the apartment and jump off the nearest freeway overpass because I know I could not live with my self after that.

I dont know how I lost control and that scares me. But what scares me even more, smashing that strainer felt good, really good. I saw the caveman that lives inside me and I hate it. I hate even more that it is still inside me, waiting for the chance to come out and smash something.
