These are lyrics I relate to. The artist is amazing to boot.
"...You can't understand unless you've walked in my shoes..."
♫There's an outcast in everybody's life, and I am her (I am her)...♫
♫There's a shadow in everybody's front door, and I am her (I am her)...♫
♫There's a dark cloud in everybody's sunlight, and I am her (I am her)...♫
♫Oh no, I am her...♫
I'm no stranger to being an outcast, that's what makes me unique, partially. I don't follow the path someone else takes, and I revoke rebuttal when I know that the rebuttal is pure nonsense.
I don't care what anyone else says or thinks. I may be a pessimist, but I didn't choose to be. Just like I didn't choose to be imprisoned inside of mortal flesh. There are times when things unexplained, uncontrollable with outcome, can't be seen with foresight or circumvented, happen. That type of nonsense though, has happened to me without my consent or my say, far many more times than fair or balanced. I do fine without your interference, thanks. Leave me be, that's all I require. Don't screw with me, don't promise me things you've no intention on delivering, don't say nice things to me, and go behind my back and rebuke them, and in general, don't be stupid, because one come a time, you're gonna come to me asking for something, or perhaps begging and pleading, and I'm going to say NO. You've burdened me with your misconduct, allowing me to take the fall too many times, and I won't have anymore.
No, this is not aimed at anyone in particular, but those who know they've screwed with me in this way, know that I've been wronged by them. Whether or not they care, that's not on me.

I wouldn't do that unless if it were from some sort of existential threat that would affect me as well.
'Flaw', 'quirk', synonyms. lol
The word 'flaw' implies there is some perfect ideal version of something that a thing fails to live up to, like I said.
The word 'quirk' implies merely a feature that might be unusual or unexpected and does not imply a judgement of quality.
At worst it implies that one should be careful because something may behave in a way they people might not expect or understand, and that is fair to apply to me sometimes I think. :3
I guess we see these differently too.
I admit to not being perfect nor ever wanting to be. I admit to having flaws, things that have some sort of detrimental effect in one form or another. I wouldn't call those quirks since they're not necessarily things I look at and say 'I like this', but calling them flaws also doesn't quite hit the mark for me either. I'm usually just not able to muster the energy required to think it through and figure out the exact adjective that this describes.
Anyway, I know I'm not perfect, I know I'm not a role model, but I'll be chopped gizzards if I'm to be called out for something that isn't true, dammit. That was the whole point of this post, to tell people enough is enough.
Burden someone else with their misconduct, or better yet, take their own damn burden.
