Anyway, I think you're swell.

Edit: Why do awesome people always doubt themselves?
thank you. i appreciate that you took time to think on it. i think you're swell too

Once you take that first leap, you'll feel a strong sense of relief and exhilaration and it will be that much easier to take the dive the next time around. Things may not always go your way, but you'll never know until you try. Better to have a life full of a million glorious failures then a lifetime of should'ves, could'ves and would'ves.
totally! that's my philosophy at my core too, so it feels good to live life that way. i don't let it hold me back too much, i'm a pretty confident person most of the time. and even when i feel unsure of myself, i trust life to have good and bad for me wherever i go, and that i'll always do my best in any situation and learn from it.

i totally relate to just wanting a mirror or to see yourself as others see you. it's fascinating just the idea that everyone has their own perception of you.

my perception is that you're becoming.more you than you've allowed yourself to be in the past. rather that was from trying to please your parents or having some notion of how you were supposed to be but now you get that that's all made up bullshit and doesn't have to apply to you.

i think you're beautiful, charming and ultra chill.

i think just really defining what you want out of.life and realizing your particular special gifts will quiet some of your restlessness.

as far as big stuff to work on i haven't seen it yet. i don't know how you are in arguments. i don't know if you take things too personally or are bad at accepting fault or apologizing or any of that stuff.

so i guess just trying to dig deep about that stuff will help.
yes! you get it. it is fascinating to think about, and i get so curious about it.

really insightful response too. i think that's a pretty good analysis of what's going on with me. thanks lady.

so again, no critique here, i can only look up.
hey thanks sunyata. you've got strengths in areas that i admire as well. guess that's why we're all here together.

hm, yeah. i don't know if i'm always sharing from my soul. i can operate in a superficial "play" mode for sure. one on one, my blog maybe, and if there's an issue that really strikes a nerve with me...those are probably when i get the realest on here.
