    My Favourite Quote...

    The best thing I have ever heard in my life was, "The only important thing is that you experience every thing there is in life." It's so simple, but yet so powerful. It's from the movie Killing Zoe. By the time you reach your deathbed, you will start to see the folly...

    I'm starting to see why I sometimes play the

    victim, first my family all play the victim we learned it from our parents, and they learned it from theirs. Second, and the most recent insight into why is that I play the victim as a way to explain to others why I'm not somewhere I want to be or why I feel like I'm not good...

    "The Unexamined Life Is Not Worth Living"

    Socrates said that, throwing down the gauntlet in a rather confrontational way.  I would say that the desire to actually discover what makes one tick is a very rare thing indeed.  Most people avoid it like the plague because they have a dreadful fear of what they'll...

    I guess that's why I'm in therapy

    and why I love talking with my girlfriend and asking her about her observations about me and my behavior. It's hard to see yourself when you're looking out of your own eyes.

    You learn so much about yourself

    when you read your old stories. I was enthusiastic, broken, fighting, doubtful, disappointed, happy - a year of my life in stories. And I'm proud of how I've grown. :)

    I think we are all open to learning something

    about ourselves in particular ways. Not everyone is the same in this regard, obviously, but learning is the single most result. We all surprise ourselves once in a while somehow, and we are enriched by it. I had a late gym class with three of my friends last night and it was an...

    For as long as I can remember,

    I've loved things like personality quizzes, astrology, animal totems, enneagrams, anything that's designed to tell you about your personality. In my opinion, they're all useful and interesting. Even when they say something that's not true, it's useful to have the idea brought...

    The more you know about yourself the happier you will be and more comfortable you will be. I've tended to learn lots about myself when i was alone without anyone... Tend to go introverted.
