I have two chips on my shoulder. One has to do with my looks and the other has to do with the circumstances I was born into.
Life would be so much better without these problems.
I have a whole boulder.
Don't we all?
What R2 said. Some are probably just better at hiding it.
Chelsea, you have great big chip on your shoulder and it's very unattractive.
I'm angry about many injustices, large and small, that I've suffered through my life, but I would not say I have a chip on my shoulder. I try to work through my issues internally and not burden every person I meet.
"Chip on your shoulder" implies general surliness, defensiveness, confrontation, entitlement and misplaced rage. That's not me at all. I'm generally kind to people and judge them individually. My problems manifest in more self-directed ways, like depression, low self-esteem and self-medicating.
I have a battery on my shoulder, and I dare you to knock it off.
I got a fucking moon on my shoulder!
Yes. I am really tired of people not treating me like the gift I am!
Miss Abdul to You
Yes, about the fact it never, ever occurred to my parents the whole time I was growing up that I would want to go to college, and that they took zero interest in helping me secure financial aid or loans (of course they never saved to help me pay, god forbid). I had to do it all by myself, didn't know what I was doing and fucked it all up.
