@Starry! You have provided two huge flashes of insight:
Yah 9s aren't afraid of other people...they don't avoid conflict/bad because of others...they avoid it because they are afraid of what they might do and destroy if they unleash the beast haha.
I never connected this to 9.
I think what I do today is I'm trying to ration the magic. So yes, I'm trying to prove my father wrong...that good things don't end. I feel safe keeping the good things in the future for as long as possible (I know that's hard to understand but yah).
I have never heard anyone else talk about this. I get this in part from my Dad who also tries to make 'magic last' and just today I was thinking that whereas I have 7 in my enneagram, I think it is his core...

I keep re-writing this as I am having difficulty articulating myself tonight. I grew up in a volatile (volcano) atmosphere and do not want people to fear/experience that kind of reaction from me.
I know that it is an inborn weakness and have learnt to breathe and integrate feelings calmly in the aim to express anger appropriately. Truthfully, I still struggle with not wanting to be angry (because of previous experiences) and realizing that there IS righteous anger.
Your comment shows me I still have more progress to make.

Cloudpatrol...I know I've told you these things privately... and I know that not everyone is fond of compliments when made in a more public space... But I hope you don't mind if I take this opportunity to make this confession...
While it is extremely rare... every once and a while I will start to suspect that someone I know is actually an advanced, spiritual being sent to earth to share their wisdom and love... and *surprise* you are one of those people!
^^I laugh a little writing that but it is hardly an exaggeration. I just think you are quite extraordinary. Whenever I read something you have written I experience your wisdom and love and feel grateful for it.

@Starry I have a hard time truly accepting compliments.
But occasionally someone says something - like you have here - that I put into a small room of my heart. To be treasured and taken out again to savor when I need or want.
I am grateful and hope I can show you the feeling is mutual in a way that honors how you made me feel today.

There is a tendency to only see the negative in ourselves, myself included, and it unfortunately mars what good we DO bring to the world. Continue to shine brightly Clouds, I'll be there smiling as you continue to spread your compassion towards others.

Run laps a lot
Pee on the garden
Leap over fences
Cock is a word for rooster
Hen is a type of chicken?
Kit kats are good
Nice chickens don't belong in the

Be a little foolish and put yourself in my hands for a little while.
And so you see, while you are in my hands you will be a little bad, certainly not a lot bad, but a little bad.
We can rationalise this by saying being a little bad is like an inoculation, it gives you some idea what it is like, while at the same time being able to recover from any untoward effects.
And of course you are not responsible for being a little bad, for you are just doing what I told you to do. I mean, Cloudpatrol, you can blame me, and happiness is having someone to blame.

The vagabond who is rapping at your door, is standing in the clothes you once wore.
