    Wrong. I don't usually need to point out things that are right.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    potential. i try to take a hard look at what *is* then i think about why it might be less than it can be. then i focus on what's behind those things, driving them. then it's basically over from there. nothing is pure, and there's always pollution. but i do try to focus on how to break down those barriers by addressing their core fears or hangups or whatever they may be.

    (i hope this makes sense)

    edit: i think i try to find the 'comment element' in all things as well. how it's connected to everyone and everything else.

    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Whichever side is missing. If I'm surrounded by people bashing something, I'll more easily see something of worth in the object. If something is widely loved, my attraction cools or becomes more analytical and questioning - if I can figure out why people like something, and it makes sense, I may yet give it a try. The first mechanism, sniffing out a value in and use for things that are supposed to be inferior, is stronger, more automatic and compelling.

    In theory, if others are seeing one side, and I pick up the other side, maybe we can put the sides together for a more emotionally balanced and realistic image. But it also comes from a core wound - I'm defending against the notion that a thing can exist that has no place in the universe. I'll make a place if I have to - for an object and, down deep, for myself.

    I mostly see what is wrong. What is right doesn't need to be fixed.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I do, if I don’t I seek for it until I find it.
    It’s an important point in every thinking process I do.

    Your wording resonates with me. I feel like I tend to see what is good now and how obstacles can be removed so it can become better. I think that often makes me seem pessimistic, because I am focused on changing things, but to me it seems optimistic to want to act on a potential.

    most things are subjective, when it comes to positive or negative. the fact i spent thanksgiving alone most would view that as negative, but you know what, it was good overall. I hung out with the dog ate chicken and mashed potatoes finished helix watched a fucking awesome show i had never heard of (darknet) and played final fantasy 7 and talked to my mom for an hour on the phone. got a text from a friend (who celebrated a week ago with her family and boyfriend, but worked a double yesterday) but everything is about perspective. and it's easy to get stuck in the everything sucks perspective. positive or negative is more emotional words.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I'm more of an optimist. I don't doubt every single thing, I'm generally not brought down or discouraged by anything, but I can be skeptical, to be point of extreme negativity.
