If smallness bothers me, I humiliate others.
If inadequacy nags, I tell others they are not perfect.
Emptiness in my life drives me to get involved in other lives, stick to them like a leech they can’t get rid of. I transfer all my stress. I feed on their discomfort.
I have my battles but I blame you for that.
I convince myself life would be peaceful without these shadows looming large.
I need to cut them down to size. I need to see myself somewhere.
The tools employed indicate where I am on the evolutionary ladder.
