Do you think the barbed wire knitted sweater is a bit much?
I have no idea. I am who I am. That includes all of me. I guess I could hide some bits or conform in certain ways. Maybe that would make me seem more "lovable", but then, that wouldn't really be about loving me. It would be about loving only certain parts. I don't try to make it one way or the other.
For safety purposes, yes.
Afterward, probably...But not on purpose if i do.
Loving people is not hard. It can be hard to get along with people, it can be hard to be around people, it can be hard to do a lot of things. But loving is easy.
I think our sinful, selfish nature fights directly with our ability to love (love as the action and way of life, not a feeling of affection), especially to love unconditionally.
It's not that I make it hard, it's that there haven't been one to really know me or love me.
As a husband, yes. As a father, not as much.
I'm not touching this one.
i turn up the obnoxiousness when I feel threatened by someone trying to get close to me.
