Red: the Color of Passion, Strength and Power

I chose my username for a reason.

Red is commonly seen to represent all-around power, sexuality, confidence, and forceful personality. I'm not going to bother going into sob-story-esque details, but I've been through a lot of sh*t, years and years of life just dumping on me. And I didn't just survive, I thrived. If I was in a bad situation, I got myself out and lived on just fine as everything turned upside down. I have never been passive, but that period of my life allowed me to realize my own strength. And now I can use it.

I am on top of my world. Successful career, close friends, tons of admirers (although that's starting to get a bit annoying). No significant other, but I'm fine with that. There's nobody in my life I'm interested in, and I don't need that kind of validation to know I'm an incredible person. Whoever I end up with will be a lucky guy. If I see something I want, I go for it full force, and I fight for it with a passion. If I fail, I know I can always bounce back, no matter how low I sink.

I'm not perfect. I'm vengeful, there's quite a few people who find me conceited and too weird for comfort, and I have no patience for people who I think are insecure with nearly every aspect of themselves and/or lacking in basic common sense. But I know I can either work out these flaws, learn to co-exist with them, or even learn to love these imperfections as part of me. After all, if those aspects were gone, I'd be so...two-dimensional.

It saddens me that there are so few people in this group. Go to Google and check out most common search queries. It's almost all stuff about loosing weight or relationships. It bugs me that so many think they need to look like a stick figure and follow some story board to make it with their significant other. No, it more than bugs me. It makes me mad.

I need to work on my anger. And acceptance.

But other than that, I'm good. Passionate, determined, strong and powerful. Red.
