    Default What's your "armor"?

    Everyone has a metaphorical suit of armor. Our "armor" shields us from a real or perceived threat. It can be literally anything that makes us feel safe, whether external or internal (behavioral). For example, fashion, makeup, hairstyles, accessories (like carrying a cigarette, cup of coffee, or an instrument everywhere as a security object), and even forms of nonverbal communication such as facial expressions/gestures would be categorized as external. There are also behavioral tactics we employ, on an often subconscious level, that make us feel safe and secure. This, too, is armor - which you can't see until interacting. The aloof coworker everyone calls a bitch. The neighbor across the hall who can't do more than small talk.

    So, what's your armor?

    Over 40 years ago, we were passing through South Carolina - possibly on our way to Florida.
    For reasons unknown to this day, we were shot to death, execution style, on the side of a dirt road.
    We were a young couple, probably in our early to mid-20s, and may have been French Canadian.
    Our identities have never been established.
    So... Who were we?

    analysis, apathy, silence, empathy, and hair trigger shutdown of emotion...

    Then we will persevere
    I find I can get behind radical ideas and make them real
    You do what you want to do
    I cannot tell you how to feel"

    Man I need to go to bed but I saw this.

    What isn’t? There’s the shield of cellphone and earphones which are pretty effective though not always employable so my patented scowl comes into play. If that doesn’t work I throw in the narrow eyed gaze. On a deeper level I just become blunt if pressed. I don’t care to discuss this. The final wall is a full display of anger. I’ve tried everything else by this point now you’ve pissed me off. Yelling ensues. Rarely has anyone tested me beyond that. Males are getting punched at that point but again that is if you’re blatantly pushing me and I’ve only struck out at a person in anger a handful of times.

    Off to bed with me.

    Mu armour is reflective thinking.

    Literacy has taught me how to be disengaged so I am able to step back and reflect, and in that way come upon epiphanies.

    Silence, and also pretending like you dont exist . im a really engaging person and have found that when i shut off most people cant handle it. they continue to push for a response, but if your on the other side of my wall , it takes alot for me to let you back in

    Cold, genuine, unbothered indifference. In the sense that there is no hate, nor any other feeling or reaction regarding the situation or the person when mentioned. I remain with zero prejudice.

    Sarcasm and reserve.
    The strong manly ones in life are those who understand the meaning of the word patience. Patience means restraining one's inclinations. There are seven emotions: joy, anger, anxiety, adoration, grief, fear, and hate, and if a man does not give way to these he can be called patient. I am not as strong as I might be, but I have long known and practiced patience. And if my descendants wish to be as I am, they must study patience.

    Also formality does wonders to keep people at a distance in a socially acceptable way.
    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...
