How old are you? I am 22, I am told I am not shy, but I am guarded, whoa am I guarded. Learning to let go and to go with flow.
A big lesson I am learning is to have a good sense of humor.
And to fake it till you make it!
Of course those are contrived pieces of advice until experienced fully and truly in life.
I admire you very much for being with your friend Dee. She is fortunate to have a friend like you.
Thank you swan that means a lot.
I feel the same way about you.
It has taken a while to get to this point. This place is so good for that.
It has opened my eyes as to just how precious and important open and honest communication actually is.
I am really shy and reserved usually.
I’ve just realized that this time is all we have and I don’t want to waste another second of it being caught up in my own fears.
Ah meaningful relationships to turn into worthwhile ones is what we aim for isn’t it?
You’re just sharing about yourself, that’s how this works. Back and forth:)
I must say I am conscious now more about my connections with people in my life.
Really enjoying your new avatar, it expresses so much hope and unity.
You’re quite easy to talk to David. That’s rare to find.
Yeah I spent my life unconsciously building this giant impenetrable wall around myself. I recently began finding out this selfishness was preventing me from any worthwhile relationship with anybody. It is taking a while but I am clearing the area.
Sorry for sounding self centered (i’m not) or using the word I too much, theres just no other way to put it .
Enough about me for a while. Its kind of vain . That’s not me. I look forward to hearing from you. You sound really cool. :O)
I went thru a similar phase of running from myself. If that is what you mean, I understand. Or you can elaborate:)
I like that you use your name, it is real and personal. I am optimistic about making connections on here as well!
I like that. How you put it all together like that. international community journal/virtual family. That is cool.
I have been on here a while but I didn’t get it. really. Just recently I found how to distance myself from myself , if that makes any sense, then I saw the bigger picture. I thought that if i used my real name people would maybe see my honesty and get to know me truly :O)
Thanks david, you bring a warm vibe too. Brave for putting your name up as well! It really is neat here. Ever since I became a member about a month ago, it has helped me wake up in a lot of ways! I am hoping to open up a bit more, but we will see what I am cool with sharing:) I know what you mean. Help is like an open international community journal/virtual family:)
wow cool I never got shouted at or at someone else. I am laughing as I read this . I didn’t realize it. Strawberries, peaches it wasn’t intentional. Hi right back at ya. And thank you for all your insight. :O)
