Take Heart

It's not easy being a heartless bitch.

I mean, I must *be* a heartless bitch, given what you whisper when you think I'm not looking.

Forgive me, but I fear you have mistaken the presence of reason for the absence of emotion. Apparently if I do not scream and shout and behave like a gibbering idiot, I have no feelings.

I have plenty of feelings, but I see no positive benefit to be gained in venting them all the time. I am perfectly capable of self-containment. I reflect on my emotions, rather than allowing them to reflect on me.

But, like I said, it's not easy being a heartless bitch. You see, the thing about us heartless bitches is that our relative lack of overt emotions gives us increased energy to pay attention to a lot of things you don't think we notice.

Perhaps it's lucky for you that I pretend not to notice anyway.

Perhaps it's lucky for you that being a heartless bitch requires me to pretend that it doesn't hurt when you call me one behind my back.

Or perhaps it's just lucky for me.

This has been an entry for [livejournal.com profile] therealljidol, Second Chance division. I'll probably post a voting link sometime later.
