List #89: Jaded

My 30th birthday is a little over a month away. And one thing I've come to realize this August? I am a jaded woman. Am I the person who is walking around with the biggest chip on her shoulder? No. Because in the end, I usually try to focus on on the positive and push through. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger, right?

Seriously, does anyone else think about:
  • Why politicians lack trust and honesty.
  • Why people can't think beyond their own egos.
  • When, not if, the man is going to walk out.
  • If everyone is walking around with a damaging secret.
  • Feeling as if the world is never going to get better.
  • Expecting people to flake out on you.
  • And well, more?
Is jaded just something that happens to women when we push 30? Is it a single thing? Or am I crazy for even thinking I'm jaded. Just climbing out of a black hole that I fell into this year? Oh, these are the things I wonder.

  1. I don't think it has anything to do with gender. I'm a heterosexual male and I think about

    *Untrustworthy and dishonest politicos
    *Egos. Also, ids.
    *When people (anyone) is going to leave

    I don't worry so much about flakes...because I'm not around people to flake out on me in the first place. One of the few practical upshots to becoming a virtual hermit.

    And for what it's worth...I was walking around the mall today and popped into Spencer's and found some of the stuff there to be a little shocking. I think that means I'm getting old. Eep.
