    For So Many Reasons

    I often feel this way for so many reasons.  Like walking into a different room to retrieve a tool or other item and then standing there wondering 'what was I looking for?'   It happens all the time and makes me nuts.  Similarly my occasional 'brain farts' when...

    A Lot of the Time

    I lack all common sense at times.  I tend to sometimes forget to forward plan as I am that used to doing things just in time to get in on their deadline and then things just all of a sudden revisit me after a few weeks and I then in particular, feel stupid

    Feeling stupid is not new to me.

    It's like a weird family member I don't like but have to live with. It'll be around forever. My stupidness has gotten especially strong these past few years and definitely this Mother's Day. It started with a bang. Literally. My mom and I were taking my grandmother to church...

    Profoundly Stupid

    I feel profoundly stupid sometimes. Not for little facts. I know those. But when I believe people love me, or when I believe people are looking out for me, or when I believe people are inherently good. And the sad thing is, I'll still go on believing it for the rest of my life.

    It's true: I feel stupid most of the time.

    I feel like I'm not intelligent enough, wise enough, conscious enough of what I'm doing, of what I am, of what I want from life. I overcompensate by reading and writing all the time, and by listening to others without much thought about what to feel. Others say I'm intelligent...
