School started up again. Almost all of my friends graduated so now it's like, damn, I realy have to submit to the mortifying ordeal of being known again already? I only got the rewards of being loved for like, a year

Reminds me of a (I think) Stirner quote. Can't remember the exact wording, but it's basically to the effect of "if you worry that without morality everyone would be an asshole, that says a lot more about you than it does about morality"

My brain is already like this naturally, and “grinning and bearing it” just doesn’t work. I just end up exploding in flurry of negative emotion every time.

God this so much. There really is this just suffocating pressure to act optimistic no matter what and it only ever makes things worse. A lot of people seem to be under the impression that if you, like, punish someone for admitting they feel shitty that will somehow help them rather than just teach them they can't trust anyone with knowing how they actually feel.
