It could be worse. It could be the reverseAn old friend I just recently reconnected with in facebook tagged me in an old, old (like a decade old) picture where I was... well, I was comparatively uglier. I'm considering to remove tag. It shouldn't bother me. I'll try to forget.
Yeah, that has happened to me. I tried to get over it, but I couldn't. Eventually, I asked my friend to remove the tag. I looked way too creepy in that photo. My appearance has come a long way and all, but I have no interest in sharing that little blast from the past with everyone on my fb page. I could laugh about it in private. Public photo sharing of old terrible photos is not something I am always ok with.An old friend I just recently reconnected with in facebook tagged me in an old, old (like a decade old) picture where I was... well, I was comparatively uglier.

You're kidding. I'm very T and have been told in more than one occasion (mostly by men) that I'm not ..girly (well, or human) enough. I find that the world is much nicer to/ expects more of feely-girls. Also, internet F-detractors seem to be mostly people who has poor Fe (social) understanding/ savviness, instead of mature Thinkers, I believe.Nymma said:All my life I've felt nothing but disdain towards the impulsive, touchy-feely, girly-girly, "grossly led by feelings" type.
Has your doctor considered thyroid problems? Weight gain and throat issues is quintessential messed-up thyroid.I just got back from a depressing visit at the doctors. Not only have I gained weight, but he still dosen't have any idea why my voice is fucked up. He switching up some of my meds and wants to see me in a month. BUT I DON'T WANT TO WAIT A FUCKING MONTH TO GET MY VOICE BACK!!! I miss my deep voice. I don't even want to go out and talk with people, or answer the phone at work. It's been pissing me the fuck off for a while now. I'm not looking forward to the wedding this weekend. At least I don't have to give a speech or anything though. FUCK.
As a resident of Florida, I understand your pain. We have palmetto bugs.. everyone just calls them roaches. I hate them.Anyway, GUISE, OMFG, COCKROACHES!!!!
I had 3 HUGE cockroaches in my jacket. And this 'poised' 3 right here was jumping up and down in the middle of a fuckin wedding ceremony. I was so embarrassed. Anyway, it felt like a bunch of thorny balls rolling across my skin. Ew. It was sickening. I hate insects. Hate em. I regained composure as soon as they were off my body, though. And, I put on my most confident, "*phew*, everything's under control guys" Smile on for the rest of the ceremony.
As you already aware, I'm a Muslim women and I'm pretty much defining myself through Islamic values. I'm also a Javanese women and well-influenced by the culture, although living as a big city girl has modernized my perspective about my culture. But overall, I'm quite proud of my values. They become my identity, my guide, my root, my core being.- Do you have strong values? What are these? To what extent do you work to live up to them?
I strives for justice, but to be honest, I don't have much mercy for weak and lazy individuals who become other people's 'parasites' in order to stay alive.- How strong is your "conscience"?
I saw a video where a mother beating her 3-4 months old baby, and I cried so hard when I watch that. I became limped when I read the news about Joseph Fritzl and how he trapped his daughter in their basement for 25 years, raped her every night, and has 6 children from her. Talking as a Te-dom, you really need a LOT to make me react that way. I didn't even cry when my family members passed away, or when my teacher harassed me sexually, or when my Dad beat me with his buckle or when he kicked me out of the house when I was 12.- What would be your response to an instance of child abuse (for instance, or severe animal abuse or whatever), taking place in your presence, assuming your actions could prevent it and it's safe for you to intervene?
I have very strong values. Basically, all of my values boil down to respect. If someone is being disrespected in my presence, I take great issue with that. If someone is being disrespectful, there are a few ways I might react depending on the situation. I mistyped as an 8w7 because of these facts. What makes me a 1 fixer though, is that I work very hard to live up to my standards, my standards basically boiling down to "treat others the way you'd like to be treated." There is a right and appropriate way to approach every situation.- Do you have strong values? What are these? To what extent do you work to live up to them?
If I've handled something in a manner I believe is less than appropriate, I will own up to it rather quickly and correct myself. I'm a very accountable person.- How strong is your "conscience"?
I don't tolerate it at all. In fact, just yesterday I confronted a man in my store who was hitting his child in front of God and the world. I knew that I could receive a complaint and perhaps even get fired for giving that man a piece of my mind, but it didn't matter to me. I have to stand up for what's right even if the consequence is great. I have a hard time keeping my cool in situations like that, but I did manage to keep it together. I talked to that man for about twenty minutes, and gave him some tips on how to parent. I was very... sly in my approach to the topic. I knew if he saw my anger, he wouldn't be as receptive. I was firm, but not angry. I approached it from the angle of, "Sir, I don't tolerate hitting of any form in my store, but I have some helpful hints I can share with you right quick. I've worked in childcare for many years." I literally was able to lay out my logic for why he shouldn't hit his child... all of it. There are many, many different reasons why people shouldn't hit their children in any manner. It affects the child negatively psychologically speaking, affects the child's relationship with the parent, isn't as effective as other methods, teaches the child that hitting is okay, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. I did share with him more effective ways of parenting, and while many people would look at that situation and say I was overrstepping my boundaries, I honestly do not feel as if I was. If he can hit his child in public, I can voice my opinion in public. He was very kind and receptive, but only because I had a good and correct approach. I treated him with kindness, and I got treated with kindness in return... this time, lol.- What would be your response to an instance of child abuse (for instance, or severe animal abuse or whatever), taking place in your presence, assuming your actions could prevent it and it's safe for you to intervene?
I guess I never really thought about it before. As far back as I can remember, I've always just had a curious nature... always craving knowledge and being hands-on in my learning processes. I'm a doer. I enjoy learning, doing, and conquering. I really don't have a good answer besides, "I'm not really sure what constitutes it. I've just always been this way. With each new task I take on, I want to one step up my 'ideal me' ladder." I suppose I've been motivated by different things at different times in my life. My motivations and inspirations fluctuate and are sometimes intertwined. These include money, knowledge, achieving status for achievement's sake, self-esteem, and other things. I guess I don't have a real "long-term" ideal. I kinda just figure out what I want as I go along and decide I'll get it.Could you talk to about what constitutes your ideal of success? Do your family and/or cultural values influence this? If so, how?
