[quote=“Brujahpriest, post: 1099784”]Very few people get all of me… VERY few. When I was younger I had unbridled optimism, it served to get me used… alot mostly due to my own lack of vision and will.
I won’t say that being protective makes anything easier to bear… if anything it makes it absolutely and soul crushingly lonely, which I must say makes me happy for the very few I mentioned above, but…
It spares that part of me for the few that are there closer to my heart .[/quote]
I think it’s possible to still be positive, and not be used. And even if I were used, in the end, if I gave it my all, I have no regrets. That’s left for the other person, who wasn’t able to fully appreciate it.
[quote=“All Else Failed, post: 1099785”]um what
I can be a positive person and be skeptical of things. I’m positive that I will have a good future because I work hard, but I’m skeptical of how the job market will be when I complete my masters, for example. They can be going on at the same time.
For instance, I am well known her to be a skeptic of the “supernatural”. I do not believe in god. However, I’m still a positive person. So yeah, do the math.[/quote]
Well how can you be positive about your future if you doubt there will be jobs available?
And the second example are two totally different things. I’m not talking about skeptical in the sense of what you believe in spiritually, but more in the sense of your life.
