Something that was inspired by something completely different

"Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes." -Walt Whitman, from Song of Myself

I love that:  I contain multitudes.

yes I've been affected by some thinks that folks have said when I shouldn't and many times only because it caught me off guard.

"what other people think of me is none of my business" (Paraphrased) - Victoria

True for those who are not significant parts of our lives.

Even the significant ones get it wrong sometimes, I have this feeling of people being "complicated creatures" as you say but also of people being somewhat fluid and unknowable in totality. This could be because when we know someone we know them as they relate to us and this makes them different when they relate to someone else. We know the relationship rather than the person. Maybe.

Emotions may not be logical but they can help understand self and the world around.

Enjoyed listening to you Dan. Great video.

I decided on my sixteenth birthday that I wouldn't rate peoples' opinions of me because if you have ten people in a room they would all say something different so what's the point of taking any one of them as the correct one?

To your own self be true.

I hope you have a good day. The sun is actually shining here right now!

I had a friend That I use to hang out with back in 1976 AKA (Petty Pop a Wheelie) he was very much like you and we got along because we both had this way of over analyzing situations that in the long run would make no difference. He gave me a book to read. It was called how to stop victimizing your self. It was only then that I realized That I am wasting my time and that I was. Your a good person Raven. I am happy that we spent some time together c];-)

Yup, I can relate to your open thoughts... speaking for myself, suffering from PTSD, I think I have come to realize that self confidence or lack of, is generated from experiences and conditioning. When we are really young, we are far more impressionable...manipulated by experience. For example, the military likes to recruit us when we are at that vulnerable, manipulative, impressionable age for the logical reason that we are easily intimidated or easier to mold into what they want from us.

As a child, we are sort of conditioned to look outside ourselves for that "assessment". We measure or seek out a sense of worth by how others treat us. It is hard to look in the mirror and see that person others see...but that's where it's okay to take a self assessment, and ask yourself..."Am I living up to my own values, Do I have integrity...do I ask or expect anything of someone that I would not ask of myself? It really matters not what other's may think of you, only what you think of yourself. My Mom, used to tell me..."You can't be censured for what you think, only for what you say".

I enjoyed your blog... ;-) ~ P

Keep using "modicum" and you'll be on the right track. Emotionalism can be highly over-rated, overused, one-sided and often unnecessarily detrimental to the best route for better understanding, since it deals with subjective feelings over objective facts. Vulcans! XD

All good comments. Nothing for me to add really, other than I'm glad to see you too.

"what other people think of me is none of my business" (Paraphrased) - Victoria

Good phrase, Vic -

Dan, I can only be responsible for what I think of myself, otherwise I am constantly modeling myself after someone else's misconceptions, which are only applicable to them. Besides, I have other, more important things to consider.

'their take at that moment'

that's the crux.

The many facets of you hitting the many facets of them at any given time = crap shoot.
