    Yes I do read your blog and what an interesting thing to to say! I usually spend my time making sure the things in my life are as solid as they can be so that if something goes wrong I'll be able to weather it out and last as long as I need too.

    Still, I hope that in your pursuit of always being on guard for something wrong to happen that you don't inadvertently cause something to happen in order to justify your fears

    This is not a good mindset to have Ms. Whatever. You are an incredibly awesome person and you do deserve the happiness you've managed to build with your man

    This is something I've noticed in a lot of ESTP women (and possibly the men too, I dunno): They've usually have gone and done so any things in their lives that, as they get older, they walk around with this great big bag of guilt for the mistakes they've made and the people they hurt and that sucks. I'm sure, much like my ESTP lady friends in real life, that you've done your time and that holding on to this guilt and shame is needless.

    You're a much stronger and better person than you were back then. You'll be fine

    I try to keep a balance between fleeing and staking my claim anymore, but I always have my eye out for when I need to cut my losses and disappear... even when things are going fine and well. I envy your stability

    it's hard to remind yourself of that on a daily basis though... especially when people who you know, who you KNOW are better people than you are, are in worse situations

    I know...

    it's not that I need forgiveness really... it's that I KNOW what I'm capable of and therefore I don't trust myself. How do you get past that?

    sometimes me running away seems like the best thing I can do for everyone else in a way

    That sounds... too familiar.

    I'll let you know as soon as I find out. I usually feel that people are better off without me, too. That's one reason why I'm so reluctant to keep in touch with people, or maintain friendships for very long.

    But anyway... is that the reason you want to run away? I thought that you just wanted a new experience, I didn't think it was about guilt or not trusting yourself... no, you shouldn't run away because you feel guilty, but you also shouldn't feel guilty if you want to run away.

    Dude, are you a 7?

    I feel like running away more often than not. I don't like being tied down at all, despite my happiness level.

    I hate commitments for this reason.

    I think it's about fear of stagnation. That you might lose the sensation of feeling "alive" if you don't go and do something that makes you feel that way.

    So, whatever...where are we going?

    I am a 7... who's involved with a 1w9. I adore him, but sometimes I would love to make him more 7ish as well... though he probably wishes that I'd be more 1ish from time to time as well

    and feeling alive... I haven't done that really for a while

    does attending a camel market in turkmenistan appeal to anyone?
