Nope. It was always there, and it is apparent to us all why you chose to make up your own version. You remind me of my brother. Every miserable turn in his life is rationalized into a grievance. It is always someone else?s fault. His wife leaves him, it?s her fault. He loses a job, it?s the employer?s fault. He loses his house it?s the bank?s fault. And we aren?t talking about normal and temporary reactions to grief. His rationalizations are permanent, constant, and accompanied by fibbing and twisting of every circumstance. Always the same one sided story. He doesn?t even realize that no one believes him anymore. He lives by it and he suffers by it. Being as close to him as I am, I realized that he suffers from a mental illness, at least that would be the PC description. The more common description is that he is a born loser. Either description means the same thing. Sadly, this is his nature and there isn?t anything he nor anyone else can do about it.
