    Consumed by some very dark thoughts

    that I do not understand. I'm not sure whether it is anger, sadness or even disappointment. I just know that these ships, sail heavily on my chest and I'm weighed down by a heavy load. It's a suffocating feeling. It heightens my emotions to such elevations, it's difficult for my...

    I donโ€™t want for much.

    I never have. Iโ€™ve always been reasonably humble and modest in the way I live my lifestyle. The only thing I want is to stop being so scared of everything all the time. I constantly seek permission to do things, to think things, to create things, and Iโ€™m just getting so f...

    Learning the words "I Don't Know" was a

    challenge for me, and still is, but to a lesser degree. People just come up to me out of nowhere and ask me questions all the time. I guess I have that welcoming sort of face.

    I never completed the memorandums

    that traditional schools mandate. I had a distaste from the third grade on what the regiment was. Along with a very unstable childhood, school was not a priority of mine. I finished ninth grade. On, I tried to reentangle myself within the spectrum of the societal offered...

    I am constantly trying to learn.

    I feel like there is so much to learn and I won't live long enough to even put a dent in all the knowledge at my fingertips. I hope to learn many things in my lifetime.

    No Opinion?...... Or Just Very Wise?

    I believe when a person says, I DON'T know, that person is exhibiting that at least they think. There is much wisdom in the words, I DON'T KNOW, don't cha think?

    I am smart enough to know

    that I do not know it all. I am inquisitive enough to keep learning. I am open enough to take into consideration another person's view ... for I do not possess a window of the world.

    The following is true I am.

    And I am glad that I don't know it all. I crave learning. If I already knew everything, what would be left to learn? Okay, that is all. I'm off to learn something new. Tata for now Serenitree1

    I used to think I was a lot smarter

    than I do now. In fact I would go so far as to say that I was quite the arrogant **** looking down on others and thinking whatever conclusions I had made were always right -- because I'm oh so clever, and oh-so-aware. I encounter others like that now, and shake my head in shame...

    ..and frankly no one does!

    I'm very suspicious of absolute certainty. There's always something new to know, or a different view. Not that there is anything wrong with strongly held belief or opinion- but these can only be based on known evidence. There is always the possibility, however slight, of new...

    It amazes me how the more you know,

    the more there is to know. As you research a topic you learn that it is so much bigger than you thought. You dig deeper and deeper and there is still more to learn. It leads you to other topics that are connected. I teach science. We do a unit on Astronomy. Space is so...

    At what point do I call it quits?

    I love her, she says she loves me yet in the same breath says she doesn't. I have children with her. Children that come to me for comfort. I am practically a single father. I do so much and am told I do nothing. She does very little and I am chastised for not validating her...
