Why do I have to cross examine my thoughts?  Am I afraid of something.  Am I afraid to be me?  I analize my thoughts, question my motives and scutinize my values.

Human beings are rational and self-aware - it's our big claim to fame - it's what separates us from, to pick an example at random - alligators. However, we're so pleased with our trick that we tend to get carried away with it. The mind offers a limitless number of escapes; it can be a funhouse - without the fun. In the rooms they say, "Don't go into the attic, the toys are all broken." But that doesn't stop us. There may be 100 reasons to go, but for most of us, “fear of being me” is probably high on this list. Keep on dancin’.

Hi New Shoes! <br />
<br />
I wish I knew the answer to that. I am in good company and that I won't question.

I don't know, but I know I do it too! And don't over think this, but you must be very happy with your new shoes! :D
