Stephen Fry on Self-Pity

I saw this and wanted to post it because I am guilty of this sin more than any other. I pity myself, for steps taken and not, for circumstances beyond and within my control.

I still avoid people though, I still feel sorry for myself when things go bad, I still react negatively to certain things which don't warrant it.

I posted this because I know I'm not alone, everyone punishes themselves, we are our own worst enemies.

Someone made a cool cartoon of it too:
