    Jacob's Abstract Theory on the Relevance

    I have made myself very complicated

    and I think I can never be with anyone in my life now. So, do not waste time coming close to me or spend time talking to me.

    Always Have Been; Always Will Be

    I have always been somewhat of a quirky individual; especially in my small town. I’ve always marched to the beat of my own drummer (granted it is a beat only I can hear), and have done my own thing. I’ve never been part of a cliché or had a very sociable personality. I am...

    This Is Me=)

    It's strange actually, I never thought I was that difficult but it keeps on turning out to be like that. And it seems like my parents (who should know me the best), are the worse people to understand me. I love them for who they are and they blame me for keeping my thoughts to...

    Don't linger. Never stay in the same mental

    state. Always make new things, abstract or concrete. The method requires that you stay consciously steadfast.

    I so wish we could create our own people.

    Then people wouldn't be so confused and lost. If we had someone there to tell us all the things we wanted to hear and mean it, that's the important part, I bet no one would sell themselves or hurt themselves. Someone who cares and who understands can help guide us, can be...

    I have many views that people disagree with

    but that is just the upbringing that I have had, and some mad hat on the internet is not going to change them in a flash.

    Haha. I more than welcome anyone

    who think they can fully understand me. I barely understand me. I've built so many emotional walls and have so many back away from this person triggers it's crazy. My heart and mind never seem to agree. I just try to be me because that's all I know.

    I have this method of interacting
