“Life is just a game”, she said, “and I must come out on top. 
 

“It’s all about control. It’s about leverage. You observe people not because you’re interested in them, but because when you observe someone long enough, they begin to reveal things about themselves. Either consciously or sub-consciously, they end up saying or doing things that you could use against them if they ever dare to hurt you. Like they always say, knowledge really IS power. That’s why I’m so active on social media; by knowing what everyone else is up to at all times, I can add ammo to my arsenal. That way, when I see someone from my online circle face to face, I know exactly what to say to earn points with them. After all, this is the world we’ve been born into, and instead of fighting it, I would much rather learn the most efficient ways to win the game. 
 

“People say that I’m too controlling or too overbearing, yet none of them have the guts or the will to actually do half the things that I do, and as efficiently as I do them. So, in every friendship or relationship, I end up being the mother, the one who has to take care of everyone. If that means that people are going to keep their distance, then so be it. When I leave a task up to someone else, they always mess it up anyways, that’s why I’d rather just do it myself. Even if it means that I’m going to die of stress, at least I’ll be dying on my own terms rather than leaving it in someone else’s hands. 
 

“It’s the same with relationships too. So long as I’m the one breaking up with the other person, then I have the power. It’s all about power in the end. I can’t let someone think for even one second that they’ve outmaneuvered me. I break things off when I see fit, and if they try to break up with me, I will try as hard as I can to hold on, even if the entire ship has already sunk to the bottom of the sea. Hell, I’d much rather drown with the other person than to let them think that they can win or belittle me. I will hold their hands and lock eyes with them while we’re drowning, and in my gaze they will see a flash of the life we could have had together, and as we draw our last breath, they will die wishing that they had never broken my heart.”
