    Hmm.. I suppose I feel important during simple things.. like if I can't make something, and someone reschedules it so I can go as well. Or when people go out of their way to invite me somewhere. ^_^;; I guess it doesn't take much to please me.

    I'm not sure why it is but I just don't feel... uh... I dunno... there's a quote I'm trying to think of actually that sums up how I feel in relation to a project I helped and its success... gahhhh something about an architect who stands in his finished cathedral and looks around with an appreciative eye on his handiwork, seeing its awesomeness but yet not feeling that the awesomeness of the cathedral bears any relationship to his personal awesomeness levels. Haha, gotta find the quote, they said it way better!

    I guess I just don't identify personally with stuff... much at all
    Hmmm I think I get a sense of what you mean.

    Perhaps it's a difference between Js and Ps? We like to hogs things more then you... This is MINE! Back off!

    Entertaining people, getting them to laugh, making them feel empowered, providing inspiration. Solving problems, fixing things, building things that work, creating and sharing anything original (music, writings, art), providing emotional or physical strength, being loved, being trusted, having my intelligence and my opinion valued and sought after.

    A lot of things make me feel important. Even writing this has made me feel important.

    If one feels unimportant, they probably do not feel fulfilled. To me, they are the same thing. And I'm talking about importance that actually matters to you, not just some random person.

    If I'm of benefit to someone else, I guess that makes me feel important. That being said, I'm not too important.

    I'm not even sure I care about feeling important. Important? How important can you be, the world will keep spinning. You can be fufilled, you can be awesome and kick ass, but thats not the same as important. You can important to another person, but the other person would be feeling the importance, not you. So I guess nothing gives me a personal sense of importance

    Maybe if I cured cancer, maybe then I might feel important, but anything short of astronomical in impact is relatively unimportant and thats sort of how I've always seen it.

    Receiving a genuine compliment from someone who believes I have talent, brains, a graceful physical self-expression, a kind, compassionate personality, or a lot of worth as an individual. Hearing from someone about what a positive difference I've made to them. Living up to my own high expectations (not often the case, but it feels good when it happens). Giving someone a gift of something I've made for them and getting a delighted response. Having the courage to stick to my convictions even if nobody else around me agrees with me and it makes me unpopular. Finally being able to conquer one of my fears. Surprising myself by displaying an ability I never knew I had before. Choosing to not behave childishly or self-centeredly when I'm tempted to, and noticing that my choice has improved my relationships.
