Having a disorder versus just being a jerk/loser

    Do you ever think that maybe your problem isn't a disorder and is more that you're just kind of a jerk?

    I've actually been thinking this about myself lately… I do have weirdness about small things that other people can do well, but part of me just wants to say that maybe if I had taken some sort of action earlier and found a way to better assert myself instead of just letting it all go by and get worse, or if I just had generally better control over myself, then maybe I wouldn't be like this.

    That would fall under regret, I believe.

    To be a jerk you do not need to have anything at all, except the desire to put others down merely for the sake of it.

    I know I'm a jerk.. But I don't always know if it is because of my disorder(s) or just because I am.. But I agree that feeling more falls under regret..

    I also have trouble telling the difference.

    Most times I've had to stand up for myself, I think I wind up looking like a jerk.

    To do it on purpose, I don't do that.
