    My anger is my armor... and my sword. It kills people (metaphorically speaking, of course).

    These days when I'm feeling the greatest emotional pain, I can turn ice cold towards people as well and walk away. It throws them off. I've now gained a reputation as the Heartbreaker/"Blue Fire" (whatever that means)...

    Urban Dictionary: BlueFire
    I dont think it means what you think it means.
    I am the Cat who walks by themself; and all places are alike to me...

    For the cat is cryptic,
    and close to strange things which men cannot see.
    They are the soul of antique Aegyptus,
    and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroë and Ophir.
    They are the kin of the jungle’s lords,
    and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa.
    The Sphinx is their cousin, and they speak her language;
    but they are more ancient than the Sphinx,
    and remember that which she hath forgotten...

    Lol thanks, that cheered me up

    Nah someone called me that one day - he was like, "You're like blue fire, in one moment you make people feel warm and happy but then you turn around and snatch it back from them like ice." I was called other names as well...

    Ive been called names too. I learned to incorporate them into the motley.

    Heh, I like that sounds way better than psychologically tearing myself apart over the words... thanks.

    Probably something between "I've seen it all", "I know more stuff than most" and "I am good at suggesting others what to do".

    Metal music was my very first armor. As an adolescent, I felt powerful whenever I listened to it. I perceived myself to be somehow stronger with loud guitars, heavy drums, and harsh vocals blasting into my eardrums with a hood up. On the plus side, it drowned out the noises of my peers. I still like this genre a lot but I don't think it works as armor anymore.

    At that age, I also used dark clothes as armor. Black hoodies and dark skinny jeans. Band shirts from Hot Topic. I also dabbled into purple and black lipstick and nail polish. Now it feels like I was trying way too hard.

    For a long while and up until now, I definitely use aloofness. I try to reject everyone before they can reject me. Obviously it has some downsides, but it still works decently as armor. I wonder how much of my "edgy" personality traits have been developed over time to be used as armor, and if I would be this way if I've lived under different circumstances.

    I've also gotten into Krav Maga as an armor as well. Started taking it last year because I thought I was way too weak, vulnerable, and defenseless and needed to learn some form of self-defense. It's helped quite a bit. I really wish I had gotten into it earlier.
