I love self-pity.
It’s so necessary, because nobody knows how bad things can get for us sometimes like we do.
The only problem I can see with self-pity is that we don’t do it enough!
“But what about all those self-pitying types who go on and on about what a bum deal they’ve gotten?,” you might ask. “Don’t they have enough self-pity for all of us?”
I’m glad you asked.
Those so-called self-pitying types are only playing at self-pity. They talk a good game, but on the inside they’re their own harshest critics.
They continually abandon themselves, refusing to engage in genuine self-compassion while they chase after someone else’s sympathy.
It’s kind of complicated, I guess.

One more thought…
True self-pity is not about “playing the victim.” It’s about the cold, hard fact that sometimes you ARE the victim.
The truth can set you free.
Just my opinion. What do you think?
