What if, everyone walked around with personal, character resumes & handed them out to strangers.
Think about it - that way we would be opening our social circles, meeting new people & NOT feel so inconvenienced all the damn time .
Yes, I feel INCONVENIENCED.
I am annoyed because every so often you get acquainted with random people (either through mutual friends or causal encounters) usually hoping that these “new friends” will serve some sort of beneficial purpose in our lives.
Then of course there’s finding out that you can not even hold a conversation with this individual , much less share common interests. So what’s the point ?
I say we just hand out resumes and call each candidate according to initial interest level, seriously.
You may talk about subjects today that you normally avoid, but the Full Moon in your 8th House of Deep Sharing seems to remove some of your fears. Although you are usually more comfortable doing something than discussing it, you’re eager to learn from what others think about your point of view now. Don’t fall into the trap of trying to convince anyone that you’re right. Instead, express your feelings and listen to the feedback you receive.
Hi, can I order a Positive Affirmation w. a side of reassurance.
Today, I had to admit to someone that every once in a while I feel the need to reassure myself about particular things that over time can be questionable.
He used the phrase, "Positive Affirmations".
I guess I can’t argue w/ that. I mean, in every sense that is exactly what I was doing. However, I would never want to be compared to the female who feels she needs to be reassured every day that she ‘looks good’ or feels that she 'is getting fat'.
My need for reassurance is more comparable to those every three month courtesy calls from your cable company.
"We were just calling to see if all your services are working fine. Do you have any comments and/or complaints?"
I appreciate it - doesn’t mean i agree with what your trying to tell me, it just means i’m open to hear your ever so clever opinion about me.
In relationships, especially, there’s always a list of things that we find irratating or un acceptable in our partners - & sometimes we even try and tell ourselves that over time these things will eventually disappear and they will become the perfect person we imagined.
You can’t change a person. Even if you think you have changed a person - you really didn’t. Sure, you may have INFLUENCED a change in a person, but they are the ones who ultimately decide what they want to alter in their life. Just because i do not always feel my opinion is needed in the live’s of others around me, doesn’t make me a bad friend or a bad person. It just means i know when to hold my tongue.
And there’s a few people I would SUGGEST do the same.
