Re: 6 Reasons Fear Of Abandonment Will Ruin Your Life

Powerful article, and it did remind me of Cheese's articles about quitting drinking and unlearning bad habits from growing up poor. I'm not ashamed to admit I sniffled at a couple points.

A while back ATB's articles got really dark (the worst was the one about trying to give up all his drugs for 1 day so he could get properly blitzed at a comedy show, can't find the article now) and then there was his string of trolly "popular stuff I hate" columns (which I actually liked, just to watch the comments section have a collective shitfit. Unlike the Hipster Doofus, ATB knows how to troll effectively).

I'm glad he realized he needed help and then went and got it. I've seen too many people both online and meatspace just sort of self-destruct and that helpless feeling you get as you watch it and realize there's not a damn thing you can do is the worst feeling in the world.

ATB has earned my respect...and admiration. I feel bad for ever mocking or insulting him. He is now my favorite author on the site, even if anything else he writes doesn't measure up to this...but I have a feeling he might surprise us some more.

Page two described me really well. Page one I could relate to a lot less but it's an important part of his story

They're all going to abandon you, you know.

It's always important to keep in mind that while the Cracked columnists may write some truly terrible articles from time to time, they aren't truly terrible people. My hat's off to ATB.

I read that in the voice of the woman from Carrie who said "they're all gonna laugh at you".

ATB is one of two cracked writers I've sent a PM to, the other being Jacopo, and it was to praise him for an article that the comments were shitting in their shoes over. I didn't receive a response but I didn't expect one either. Damn shame I won't be reading the article being discussed here.

Watch Buffy : The Vampire Slayer, episode Fear Itself. You'll love the ending.

This article stressed me out and made me think about things I don't want to think about, so I abandoned it. Maybe one day I'll come back to see how page three went, but not likely.

Silly ATB, there's no need to keep ruining relationships with people. Just give up and find chemical friends instead. They'll never die on you, never start avoiding you because you're sad about your mom dying, never get mad at you and abandon you...

I read that in the voice of Regan from the Exorcist, like how she told the astronaut "You're gonna die up there."
Crap, and now I've peed all over the carpet again.

I've never really thought about abandonment issues before. It does kind of explain why I spent an hour sobbing in my friend's basement whilst piss drunk because I wasn't able to say goodbye to her last weekend. Huh.
