I've seen far too many instances of people flaunting their "cynicism" because they think it's "cool" to be critical of everything they see and it makes them some sort of a prodigy, genius, or deep thinker. Like disillusionment is a form of fashion to wear, a way to "beat the system."
Of course, this package is never complete without the ubiquitous "aw well, the system's fucked, there are people like us who care and would change it if we had the power, too bad there's nothing we can do about it" line, at which point I know they're just playing around with their "knowledge of hidden corruption" to make themselves feel superior. If they really cared, they'd at the very least try to model their futures around bringing some kind of change.
Now of course you see the hypocrisy inherent in me saying these things.
If you want my objective input, somewhat "snarky" would describe you far better than "cynical." Nothing bad.
I actually wasn't asking for your input (but since you have decided to generously give your unsolicited opinion), I am naturally sarcastic. Sarcasm, cynicism, and snark all fall within the same category. As far as, "flaunting" my cynicism for the reasons you have mentioned I do not agree.
"Sanguine people are sociable and charismatic. They tend to enjoy social gatherings, making new friends and tend to be boisterous. They are usually quite creative and often daydream. However, some alone time is crucial for those of this temperament. Sanguine can also mean sensitive, compassionate and thoughtful. Sanguine personalities generally struggle with following tasks all the way through, are chronically late, and tend to be forgetful and sometimes a little sarcastic."
I had a dream where I kissed my friend and colleague (who is married, whose wife lives with their child in another state while he is finishing up school) simply because I could. I was the one to initiate it and didn't even really think anything of it in the moment, and then as soon as it was over, I felt so ashamed and horrible.
I woke up and felt soooooo relieved it was a dream and not real.
Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.
I avoid parts of the city with lots of tattoos and foul language; I confess that I think individuals with 4 or more tattoos are probably troubled in some way --- probably a degenerate with daddy issues, but I'm willing to change my mind. Also, please no comments; I confess that I don't care for any comments.
