Confessions of an Evil Prick Pt. 1

2 Feb 2021 7 minute read 0 comments tipplenurkey

I don't like feelings. I have them, I just don't like them. Emotions, to me, are far more often liabilities than assets. Feelings are too dependent, too erratic, too unpredictable to serve a practical purpose in nearly any life situation. The fact is...
