Quote from: Chompskyan Grammar on November 29, 2011, 04:40:21 AMI understand that you've gotten out of a relationship recently. Have you talked to someone you trust in real life about it?
Quote from: applesauce on November 29, 2011, 07:39:06 AMThat's better than most people could do, myself probably included.
Quote from: Socks on November 29, 2011, 04:22:43 PMYeah but what good is your life really, if everyone who looks at it just shakes their head and walk away? Life isn't about just living to your own tune, as much as I have come to painfully realize this, it is about joining the harmony and inspiring others to your song. This takes everything you have, from your mind to your soul, and it must be shared with the world, in some fashion or form, for you to thrive and truly realize your full potential. Disclaimer though, it is not easy, actually, hard as fuck. For everybody.
Quote from: MF Doom on November 29, 2011, 09:32:31 PMI disagree. I feel like you can have just as enjoyable of a life without socializing, you just need to be able to accept yourself. I've actually been spending a lot more time alone lately, not because I don't like my friends, it's just that I would rather invest my time in bettering myself than bettering arbitrary relationships.
Quote from: Socks on November 29, 2011, 09:36:45 PMYou misunderstood I never implied socialization was the impetus for development. Essentially, the focal point of all your efforts in 'bettering yourself'--whether alone or not--is to better humanity. Otherwise your jolly life is insignificant no matter how fucking happy you think you are.
Quote from: Socks on November 29, 2011, 10:15:57 PMI know I am insignificant but I still know I am insignificant. My life already means something to me, but I want it to mean something to you, too. Is this selfish?
Quote from: Socks on November 29, 2011, 10:40:47 PMI did not mean my life in detail but my life in implication, as expressed, presumably and hopefully, through the breath of others in their own time and place. I do care about the world, even if I were to consider myself perfect and perfectly at peace. I refuse to believe that you can live a meaningful life without sharing something. I am most happy and feel fulfilled when I can show to another a small piece of the truth that I have discovered. That, in my opinion, is more important than the discovery itself! I think I need more snuff for this conversation though.
Quote from: bluaki on November 29, 2011, 07:32:41 AMActually, it's arguably worse in that I simply don't deal with others like at all
Quote from: Clucky on November 30, 2011, 12:17:45 AMdo you secretly want to be little miss social butterfly, or just naturally like being quietthe former's such a bitch to get through
Quote from: bluaki on November 30, 2011, 01:06:29 AMI don't want to be immensely social, but I at least want a few friendsI'm naturally quiet and I blame my psychological issues for elevating that to the point of being able to trust or otherwise effectively communicate with others
Quote from: applesauce on November 30, 2011, 08:21:02 AMWhat? I mean, you're welcome to feel that way about your life (and anyone else's really) but if I decide that seeing beautiful things and experiencing as many of the world's honest, raw, life as possible is what gives my life meaning and lets me feel accomplishment and closure in life-- who are you to say otherwise? Do I need to sit around bars or schools or somewhere and share my experiences? Do I need to write a book? Why can't it be enough for me to just see it all and feel it all and think it all?But I suppose you are talking of significance, and I don't truly know what significance is.
