This is a bitterness community. It was created to discover and define our very own bitterness. Possibly one day, for some of us, such a place will not be needed. Until then, you have our support and understanding. Our community is a friends-only community. Friends are added on approval. If you would like to be added, please place a request in our community info.
The rule(s) are as follows: 1) We give permission that any of your entries can be friends-only. In this way, member's will have the luxury of speaking bitterly in private, but will also be heard by sympathetic members. 2) This community is about bitterness. As such, we do request that your entry has something to do with feeling bitter. If you feel so inclined to also be positive or kind in your bitterness, you have our support. 3) Please keep civil. Even though we are a bitter community, that is no reason not to be polite to one another. 4) Do NOT point out holes in peoples bitterness. This means, if someone is telling a bitter story about losing a job they truly wanted, but were obviously not qualified, do not point this out. 5) Be understanding. 6) Posting is unlimited.
