    I can't wait until @Lady_X and I are both 122 years old and still partying...



    this is because I have good reason to believe... that when everyone on the planet is completely bored with me... my sister X will still think I'm quite interesting in all ways and in the things I just have to say. My evidence for this...? Well, it lies in the fact that I...in my scatteredness and poor memory...wouldn't even be able to guess how many times I've repeatedly posted this same quote somewhere on the forum...so thrilled to share it just like it was the first time (over and over again...)





    And Lady_X will then be right there to rep me a wubbie just like it was the first time that happened as well.






    I was recently talking a bit about my culture of origin on the site...and the painful truth of it is...is I'm no stranger to the Latin concept of Amor Fati. It was just too close for me to see. Too close to home...too embedded in the fabric of my culture...taken for granted and thus not taught. Never explained...and so I had to learn this *thing* from...a German philosopher and poet...with an area of expertise in classical philology. I had to enter in through the back door of my own house.

    Even still, when I look back on how I was raised. My God, my own father would never have allowed this kind of thinking to take hold in me had he known... When I stop and consider all of who I am there is no part of me that can comprehend how it is that I came to believe I was...not just entitled to an "all-positive Fati"... (conscious feelings of entitlement came later for me.) No, I absolutely knew my life was going to be 100% awesome the entire time...until it finally occurred to me that it wasn't.

    I had to learn as if learning how to walk and talk all over again... how to...not just see but embrace all of life... <-like a 7 (and an Italian for god's sake...and I still need little reminders to myself here and there.)
    You are ahead of me in wisdom, and your soul is far more alive than mine...

    I just fear screwing up on this job and hurting somebody. I am scattered, misplace things, and forget details I should remember.
    I see these as my primary flaws.

    If you are Sx second then you are a sp/sx 6w7 and are social last.

    i am too but surprisingly not at all as a mom...i mean i'm scattered and forget stuff but i'm super cautious and careful about their safety n stuff. i think you'll find you can be hyper focused/aware when it matters.

    I put Ice Cream in the fridge a few days ago, tried to start my car with a wooden spoon yesterday, lost my wallet in pants I was still wearing today, and tonight I almost threw a letter in the trash instead of putting it in the mailbox tonight (I caught it, though)

    Thank you for encouraging me, but I have always had anxiety about helping people because I am accident prone, but I desire to help people because I feel it is the only thing worth doing and helping people gives meaning to my life.

    You are right, though...
    The more important a task is to me, the less likely I'll mess up...though it is always possible...

    Life is good...

    It is truly amazing we can live in such a time that we can learn as freely as we can. To understand is bliss...

    Swamp Song

    My warning meant nothing.
    You're dancing in quicksand.
    Why don't you watch where you're wandering?
    Why don't you watch where you're stumbling?
    You're wading knee deep and going in.

    And you may never come back again.


    This bog is thick
    And easy to get lost in
    When you're a stupid, beligerant fucker.

    I hope it sucks you down.

    Wander in and wandering.
    No one even invited you in.
    But you're still stumbling, stumble in.
    Suffocate.

    Why don't you get away,
    While you can?

    No one told you to come.




    Undertow

    Two times in.

    I've been struck dumb by a voice that
    speaks, from deep beneath peerless water that's,
    twice as clear as heaven,
    twice as loud as reason.
    Deep and rich like silt on a riverbed,
    just as neverending.
    Current's mouth below me;
    opens up around me.
    suggests and beckons all while swallowing.
    Surrounds and drowns, and wipes me away.

    But I'm so comfortable... So comfortable.

    Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up,
    you're saturating me.
    How could I let this bring me,
    back to my knees?

    Third time in.

    I've been baptized by your voice that,
    screams, from deep beneath the cold black water that's,
    half as high as heaven,
    half as clear as reason.
    cold and black like silt on the riverbed.
    Just as neverending.
    Current's mouth below me;
    opens up around me.
    Suggests and beckons all while swallowing.
    Surrounds and drowns, and wipes me away.

    But I'm so comfortable... So comfortable.

    Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up,
    you're saturating me.
    How could I let this happen?

    Why don't you kill me?
    I am weak and numb and insignificant,
    How could I let this bring me back to my knees?

    Eu...phor...ia. [x4]

    I'm back down, I'm in the undertow.
    I'm helpless and I'm awake, I'm in the undertow.
    I'll die beneath the undertow.
    There doesn't seem to be a way out of the undertow.

    Eu..phor..ia.
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    Each thought's completely warped
    I'm like a walkin', talkin', ouija board.

    My memory has not served me well lately. Dave Grohl, a constant in my life, not yet having been mentioned in this thread is astounding to me...and evidence of my clear and present insanity. Massive, unspeakable quantities of ginkgo biloba - here I come.

    (excuse me for one brief moment Dr.)
    Well I often find that bringing Dave Grohl into a discussion enhances things.


    I consider myself an individual that runs towards interesting people and away from relationships. I mean, I'm wired to run towards relationships and away from pain which creates a strange push-pull I imagine. But as an sx dom I take relationships so seriously...and while I am quite certain it doesn't show in my outward behavior beyond just being there...I still am entirely invested with my soul...my heart will be...entirely devoted. Knowing what kind of pain I'm potentially setting myself up for I'll most definitely do the "gone in sixty-seconds" if I feel the person will bring me heartache and harm with their actions and treatment of me (I have since gotten over the heartache of my last relationship...and yet I still get mad at myself for not having seen in him...or known via what should be a mandated public service announcement... the dangers of turning your heart over to fuckin-crazy Ni>Fe>Ti.) So, because of the extreme seriousness of it all...I've never personally used relationships as a form of escapism... But day dreaming of some amazingly awesome and hot dude has caused me to avoid many of Life's more unpleasant realities and for this I'm quite grateful haha (<-that's a joke MQ.)

    7 sx will use actual *romance* as well as literature, day dreams, fantasy as escapism

    7 sp will feed their hearty appetites with food, sex, luxuries as escapism

    7 so it's these guys I worry most about when it comes to actual running in and out of relationships. They seem to have a more difficult time feeding the beast...quieting the 7 beast...and so they just keep on running. Dave Grohl's running has worked for him...but I could still see long before I even knew what enneagram was that he was running...and that his running looked "identical just better rewarded" than my ENFP 7w6 so/sx bestie.
    Interesting I like these distinctions. I think I know a couple of sp and so first e7s IRL; but I don’t think I know any sx first.


    All my life I've been searching for something
    Something never comes never leads to nothing
    Nothing satisfies but I'm getting close
    Closer to the prize at the end of the rope

    And I'm done, done and I'm on to the next one...




    Love this song, actually I love most of his songs so that really isn't saying all that much; but it's a lot of fun to head bang to though.
    The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed; And on the pedestal, these words appear: My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;

    Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
