I'm not popmpus &
I don't have my head up my ass
As I responded in that thread: It’s pompous and you are.
Why am I repeating that? Well, let’s start off with this is just IMHO. Now that that’s out of the way…
If more people took the time to know or maybe to share with other people what was GOOD about themselves instead of focusing on what’s wrong with themselves or others, we wouldn’t have people acting out with guns. Simplistic? Sure. But no well adjusted, self-accepting person, goes around blowing the hearts out of other human beings.
You really made me angry with your post to that thread. A lot of posters (myself included) shared the very best of themselves and you come out there like a complete troll and say, “Hey, anyone who thinks anything good about themselves is pompous and if they share it then they must have their head up their ass.”
If you meant it as a joke I sure as hell didn’t see it that way. I wish MORE people would have posted out there and really thought about what makes them special, unique, or just a good person. I think it makes a major difference in how you see the world as to how you see yourself.
If you think you are shit then believe me, the universe will echo that right back at you and make it far easier for you to see the rest of humanity as nothing but shit. But if you know, if you like yourself, love yourself, know that you are a good person, then the universe will echo that back to you and you will see others for their beauty and worth as well.
These “fucked-up-beyond-psychological-help” people are the way they are because they don’t have any clue as to what makes them interesting or unique so they sure as hell can’t see it in anyone else. They hate themselves so deeply that they project their anger onto other human beings. When they kill others they are really, symbolically, killing themselves.
I’m sure there is something good within you, realm505, something that you know you can do better than 90% of those around you. Why don’t you go back to that thread, share it, and make me feel a lot better about this and about you as another human? I don’t like carrying around this anger at you and I thank you for letting me post it and get it out of my heart. I hope you won’t just flame back at me but seriously consider what I’ve written.
In case my point has slipped up with my anger: EVERYONE out here has wonderful, unique, amazing, silly, funny and just plain great aspects to their personalities. I invite, nay, beg you, to really think about it, go to that thread, and share. I’d love to read it. The more we accept ourselves, the more we can accept others. That includes my accepting you, realm505. I’ve let go of my hate with this and plan to move on. I hope you will too.
