I Hate Everyone

I was typing away on my computer, when my mother commented that I hated everyone.

The idea never actually occurred to me before. However, I realized I don't like a single person on this planet. I like my cat, I like my dog, and that's about it. I try to be a good person, do the right thing...

But everyone is just so selfish, self-absorbed, annoying to the extreme. I can't stand to be around people most of the time and listen to their tiny mundane concerns when really -- the whole world is pretty messed up and there are seriously more important problems than x, y, or z. Then it occurred to me. Is there a reason why I'm so nice to people who frankly don't deserve it? Why do I put up with people hugging me and shaking my hand, when really I wish them on the other side of the planet where they can't bother me or anyone else.

I claim to be "zen" without any hatred, but maybe I'm just deluding myself.

I look at history and I see so many places where we could have taken a different path ... and maybe this would better.

So, I guess I'm asking for a bit of advice. Am I misanthropic? Wikipedia is being so vague ...

Or do I need to go searching for some other explanation as to why I feel this way.

" I can't stand to be around people most of the time and listen to their tiny mundane concerns "...

So is there any reason why the rest of us should listen to your concerns? You're self-absorbed to the point of being catatonic in the presence of others. Maybe you should do a little more listening and a lot less navel-gazing.

...you're so vague.

You probably think this world is about you

You're so vague (you're so vague!)

You probably think this world is about you, 'bout you, 'bout you, 'bout you!

Doesn't seem fundie to me, just introverted, cynical, and depressed.

Well, the heading is concise, at least.

You even hate your mother, even though you apparently live with her?
What have you done to make your co-habitation more pleasant for the both of you?

And, you're not self-absorbed or selfish, or annoying?

Last time I checked, "zen" is a calm, detached state, not one of anger or hatred...

Anthropos is humans, and misos is hatred, so it means "hatred of humans". How can you find that vague?

Sounds like to me you need to move out of mom's basement so she can have her laundry room back.

Thanks, correcting it now!

Doubting Thomas

Talks about how he hates people and how much people annoy him with their concerns, then complains that they're the ones who are selfish and self-absorbed.

This isn't fundie. The OP is actually doing something about his problem. Making a little progress, too.

K'Zad Bhat

No, he is not doing anything about it, nor making any progress. He's recognizing it, then wallowing in it. And even finding ways to try to weasel out of it, too.

" He's recognizing it"

Most fundies don't even get that far,
then he tries to zen his way out of it instead of
praying to god to strike his persecutors with lightning, thus my comment.
