This is the first time I’ve actually spent any time reading alt.angst, and
I must say its damn scary how closely I relate to what’s written here.
Realizing things-are-naturally-fucked-up-and-there’s-nothing-you-can-do-about-
it-so-you’s-damn-well-better-get-used-to-it is really tough on one’s psyche.
From this group and from people I know in the ever so dreary real world it
seems to me that there are two ways angst will affect a person. One: the
angst will just make life seem even more a joke than it always has–the person
manages to maintain a good sense of humor about it most of the time and, aside
from having to sit alone in a dark room and cry every once in awhile, they
are quite capable of getting on with his or her life and have an alright time
of it. Two: the angst becomes overwhelming; the victim seeks nothing more
than to find a corner or hole to hide in, away from reality, and ultimately
decides the only true escape from it is death…they stop living long before
they die.
