I liked testing and being given the truth about my most basic motivations and desires. Could it be that there's people who know how I feel? Reading just several threads I immediately identified with eccentric, intense, intelligent, self-depreciating souls. All this time I thought I had maladapted through meekness, isolation,and great struggles and rejections relating my overwhelming feelings to others. I knew I was at fault for not being able to play the hurtful games, and that both friends and potential lovers had good reasons to dissaprove. Then I see familiar attitudes, meditating on matters relevant to understanding and healing and living better. And I like who you are; you're not content with business as usual and you have a good heart. Knowing I'm not alone makes me feel whole again. I am validated by your existence, you know what I've been through and I respect you just for surviving this far. It's comforting to have a place where I can be myself. Anyone else have a hard time getting acceptance when you reach out?
