Bitterness is real and it is in the eye of the beholder. It is not wrong to be bitter. It is not unfashionable to be bitter. Bitter is an essence, a fragrance to be worn when needed. One does not need to be bitter all the time. Bitterness is like that favorite sweatshirt; you pull it out when you are frazzled, tattered and torn. When you need that extra pick me up.
