Would you please complete this statement, referring to YOURSELF ?
"Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY__________________________________________________
Complete this any way you wish! It can be funny, mysterious, confusing, total truth, your imagination.....anything goes!.....Check with your muse! ( Few or multiple words.)
Regardless of what you believe you see, hear, and think about me as an introverted Virgo, the truth is I'm REALLY interesting, adventurous, creative, individualistic.......and QUITE EDGY.......
Should have known you'd be the first to reply! LOL OH! and you brought snacks!! You DOLL you! I'm hungry! I believe what you said Grace....your tray is quite CREATIVE! Thanks.
Interesting Grace. I too am a Virgo, yet on the cusp of being a Libra. Myers-Briggs over the years indicate me as an Introvert, however have transitioned toward being an extrovert nearing the center. Learned, conditioned, or with intent? You?
Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me as a hard-working, prolific artist, the truth is I'm REALLY a huge lazy-ass who would rather spend the day curled up on the sofa with the dogs, watching Netflix, than work. Which is probably why it's good I haven't won the lottery yet!
Regardless of what you believe you see, hear, and think about me . . . the truth is I'm Really . . . (hmmmmmm . . . consider this answer will change after I write it :-) . . . happy being confused learning new things all the time while seeking to share what I have learned through writing as a medium of expression, yet usually do not publish what I have written because I think about it too much LOL . . .
Next . . .
Tim....You're happy being confused???? At last, I've found my soul mate!! LOL
Yes and it seems with a change in life there is confusion, however clarity is arriving with time and as they say 'time heals'. It is fun being confused, although others may not have as much fun LOL . . . part of the fun is arriving upon clarity :-)
Oh lisa.....PASS THE POPCORN, GIRL!! LOL. Very honest answer. Yes, the lottery would help a great deal. Gosh, and I really DID think you were a hard working prolific artist! LOL
Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY an all-around cool dude who gets along quite with people from all walks of life. And I just love southern Louisiana Creole and Cajun cookin'.
OK people, what's with the pictures of all the yummy food...when I'm starving & have nothing good in the house and it's too late to go shopping and Ohhhhhhhhhh....Thanks feenix. If U say you're a 'cool dude" I believe you! LOL
Paula, because of some of the "mental issues" I have, I am driven to continually boast about myself. : )
Awww...C'mon. Don't blame it on the devil. (You won't be smiling at me for very long. (It's been interesting, knowing you)
Paula, you just made my day. Thank you for your uplifting remark.
'Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY a crying voice in the wilderness, a handsome face on the top of my body, always hungry soul for more knowledge, a workaholic woodworker, busy gardener, active walker, good food , solemn music and literature lover, a most determined and indefatigable spirit who is resolved student hastily making up for three decades lost space inactivity in reading and writing... ( a mercy supplicant.)
Michael....Post this on a dating site. You'll be instantly buried in responses! Go for it. I mean, you're already crying in the wilderness. Might as well cry at home too!! LOL
That is fantastic encouragement, for someone else; my hart has been occupied very happily for longer than many peoples lifespan, getting better as we speak. " A voice crying in the wilderness " is acquired legally -you know source- for the same purp
How wonderful for you! Congratulations on keeping the love alive, Michael. Wishing you many more years of bliss!
Thanks Paula. Thanking for gratulation in behalf of my Zuzana, a soulmate who deserves all credit for "us" being me as I am progressing in my role to the full capacity design by the Creator for real man, a human being with leading role in the family.
"Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY" NOT a boring person who just stay at home, read books and only go out of the house when needed to. It´s only a part of my multiple me who sometimes love to be somewhere lively and dance for hours if given a chance. Happy weekend to all!
"Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY even more startlingly handsome in person."
Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY much, much smarter than most people think I am.
Although people have called me retarded, I'm not; I'm a high-functioning autistic person with a very high IQ.
What?! From the caliber of your hubs, you are an extremely intelligent and insightful person. You are one of the more enlightened hubbers around here and that includes Paula also.
Some people who have physically met me have referred to me as mentally retarded when they thought I couldn't hear them. I think they judge me so because I can't get eye contact right, don't say much, and sometimes rock a little when under stress.
Oh well, it seems we can do w/o those "shallow" individuals, don't you think? I instantly saw "Genius" in flashing lights the first time I read one of your works. Hey, in general I'd say Women DO ROCK!! Right girls?
Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY a what you see is what you get kind of person. It's true, I'm a bitch to those that see me as one and a smart ass to everyone else. Only Bob sees the real me. He's so gullible.
Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY................A Mess.
Awww, I don't see you that way, Chris. Figure out what you love and then do it.
Thanks Austinstar. All I can say is, thank goodness the days of balancing a checkbook are over. Visit me at tax season and help me find all the documents. My glasses? Oh, their on my face. Phone? Google, "Where is my cell phone." Yep, a mess:)
I know! Getting older SUCKS! I'm grateful that I still retain most of my memory. How much longer that is going to last? I don't know.
Cnris....Never fear. Soon you will FORGET all about this period in your life!! LOL. You'll only remember your awesome, bright & thoughtful self from college. (You just may not recall the name of the college) LOL
LOL!!! Well actually, I really don't know..maybe you should write it down in a notebook along with various other things you may need for future reference!! That's what I do, but only the good things! LOL
Actually, I was going through a box of photo albums the other day and came across my college diploma, so yes, I did go to college. Now I just have to figure out who all the people in those photo albums are.
Heck Chris...make up the names. Who will challenge you?? LOL
Fascinating question Paula. The honest truth? I don't think people can handle this truth, but here it is - totally honest. Despite my high pitched, cheery voice and my seemingly good nature affect in the world around me, I am an inner seething ball of hot blazing anger. I am angry at the unfathomable injustice in the world - my small world, the world at large. I am angry that the puzzle of our existence is so incredibly unclear and our purpose is defined by no one who makes sense to me. I am angry that people can't see that we are the product of our genes and our environment and actually have very little control over either. I can't escape Walt Whitman’s phrase of "The saddest word of sword or pen, are but the words, 'It might have been.'" I am seething with anger that the movements of the 60s and 70s failed to convince the world that the US uses two-thirds of the world's resources while the selfish, uninformed desire to have bigger and bigger vehicles has resulted in global climate change that could very possibly end our existence on this planet. I am angry that the 1 per cent of the population is so incredibly greedy that they can't even CONCEIVE of how their quest for wealth on the backs of workers affects our economy, our children, our rates of violence and discontent. I am extremely angry at the interpretation of Christianity by many religions which has very little to do with the message of Christ in the world. So at 70 years old, I'm angry. I wrote a poem about "Women My Age,” the last line being , "because woman my age don't say #*&!. I will win no awards for popularity with this post. You just let me be honest and I thank you. All that being said, there is one thing I am grateful for - as in the Desiderata..."With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world." Surprisingly, I'm grateful to be part of it all and I'll continue to walk in the world as if I'm a lovely, loving soul, smiling all the way through. I should get an Academy Award.
YES! I applaud you Billie and fully share your anger in a profound way! IMHO, you speak for so many of us ...and Wow can you purge an honorable & important rant. I'm happy I provided you this opportunity! Great response Billie!
I'm F&%king SPEECHLESS! Wow. I'm 63 and I totally agree!
Paula, You are very sweet. And I LOVE your phrase, "purge an honorable rant" (very cool) - Austinstar, I would have guessed you would agree
I not only agreed, I'm trying to get this to go viral! Shared and tweeted and saved for posterity!
Austinstar, Oh my goodness. I just hope all my DEAR, DEAR Christian friends (and I do mean that sincerely) don't see it- tee hee) I guess I'm out of the closet, so to speak.Very few people know my maiden name, however, so I'm good. You made my day!
Hey, Billie, you shrinkin' violet, come on now and tell us what you really think! I think I'll follow you.
REALLY, MzB...I agree. Billie is MY kinda woman! Spit it all out, honey! Purging is soooo good for the soul!
Miz B 'n company I think it was '03 before Iraq when I wrote ths "rap", that starts: "I'm 58 and I still don't know why, some win-some lose and others die in wars-when I can't see why-We can never see beyond the boxes we get f***'in' stuck in....
"Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY a curly red haired girl with dimples."
"Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY a twenty-five year old in the body of a senior citizen."
Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY my own worst enemy. Let me explain. I DO NOT dislike myself, I just get really annoyed and frustrated when I get careless...especially when I cannot find something: EXAMPLE: owning several pairs of reading glasses, and when I need them, I can't find ONE pair around the house; I am really hard on myself when that happens almost on a daily basis. As a writer I have many, many pens...do you think I can find ONE when I need to write?
One more story about reading glasses: I bought two new beautiful pairs at Barnes & Noble - each pair came with a case. The next day they vanished...totally! I got so frustrated I just stormed back to Barnes & Noble and bought two more pairs. When I got home, a LIGHT came on. The bag they were in I thought was garbage. I found them in the FREEZER!
So now I am the proud owner of four pairs of reading glasses. I keep a couple pairs in my tote bags and use them when I spend days at Barnes & Noble reading and writing.
I have also misplaced my purse at least five times last year...twice in a theatre bathroom, and three times in a store (Can you say nervous breakdown? My life is in that purse)...but EACH time God has shown me mercy and I have been able to find the purse. Now I cling to it like Velcro.
My husband tells me all the time I am too hard on myself. I have also lost sunglasses and I think restaurants along the east coast have one of my sweaters. I don't know how I can be so diligent about NOT losing something and then losing it, if that makes any sense! I just know I get very disgusted with myself for my carelessness. The upside is that I have been able to share many stories with my friends and we have a good laugh. Thank you for this unique question Paula. Blessings, Sparklea
Sparklea!!! After all these years, I discover that you & I are twins separated at birth! I'm stunned. Hey, that makes you Bill's sister too! LOL Don't sweat the common, everyday annoyances that plague all of us! Perfectly normal!
LOL PAULA, YOU, ME AND BILL ARE PERHAPS TRIPLETS AND WE DO NOT KNOW IT??? YES, I GUESS I CAN FILE THESE MISHAPS UNDER 'NORMAL'??? DEPENDING ON WHAT ONE'S DEFINITION IS OF THE WORD NORMAL.
LOL...I may not be the best one to ask about "normal"..now that you mention it!
... a bitch! Well, not all the time, but it's a part of my personality that has no problem showing itself.
Wait 'til Paula responds, Chris. She knows me well, but loves me anyway!
Go for it, Chris. I'm not as bad as I make myself out to be. Just when provoked. That's when Bravewarrior comes out fighting. I really look at life through rose-colored glasses, but I don't take crap from anyone.
Here here! I 2nd that ! Go baby warrior. I'm standing tall right next to you! Chris, in every single female, there's that "B" in the corner, ever vigilant, waiting to pounce! It's how we survive. Men who play fair won't ever meet her. Peace Sha!
....shy and introverted, not standoffish, arrogant or condescending....
But, according to my husband, who is a real people person, and a great salesperson (even though he hates sales), it is my shyness that makes people walk away from our booth when I'm the greeter, because he says my shyness makes people THINK I'm all those things I am not...it's their faulty perception...and I lose the sale every time.
He has a master's degree in social science, and has studied body language extensively...but the societal perceptions are unfair to shy people! Phooey!
(They assume--and you know what they say about what "assume" spells...)
Dzy...I demand to know who said you are arrogant & condescending! I've got my boxing gloves ready, girl....Just POINT! I can SEE how shy you are, peeking out from that foliage!
I say "PHOOEY" too, Dzy! Societal perceptions suck. Of course they're unfair. None of the rules are based on REAL people! I got your back girlfriend!
Interesting questioned you have posed here.
"Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY not one who looks at the world through rose-colored glasses. However, I am a terribly complicated woman who loves deeply, feels deeply and thinks deeply. I have a keen sense of intuition that sees beyond most, yet I am mindful to extend mercy to others, as it has been extended to me countless times. I try to live and let live as my beloved mother would say.
Actually theresa.....the woman you have described is who I would say you are.....so perhaps you portray your true self much more than you realize! i know this: you're very precious!....
Thank you for that, Paula! Oh, I do hope so, but sometimes one wonders how we truly come across to others. I hope you are enjoying a peaceful weekend, lovely and brilliant woman, YOU!
Faith You are definitely ALL of the above and I am so thrilled to know you...you beautiful, loving, genuine sincere person you! Love and blessings always Sparklea
Love you so much too, dear Lea, my lovely, beautiful friend with a heart of love. I am blessed to call you friend in this life. Hugs and much love always
"Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY_not the type person which you think I am."
Regardless of what you believe about me, I was once next in line to be the queen of a small country. But then gypsies kidnapped me and kept me for five years, whereupon they grew weary of me and sold me no normal people who were poor. I've tried to contact my real parents, but alas, they died....and my siblings refuse to recognize me. So here I am, a princess trapped in a normal world. (Sigh)
Welll...rumor has it that Prince Harry wants to live the normal life. Harry, if you're listening, please call me. We can trade.
Come and join me Savvy - we can be co-commanders of the supreme universe, er, co-supremes of the commanding universe, er, whatever... LOL
Ha! Good one. As long as we remember to co-command. Austinstar. Is the Universe big enough for both of us? We shall see. I imagine we will reign from different sides...and why not?
LOL! Don't let me interrupt ladies. Looks like you're having a grand old time! ~savvy....I'm not at all surprised. I knew you were royalty immediately.
We always recognize those most like ourselves .ROFLMAO!!!!!
Lol! Now there's three of us. I love it! I don't know what the initials mean, but I'll look them up.
"Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is I'm REALLY your kind of person. Why? Because I'm a peoples' specialist. I'm an easy life accompanist. I can amuse you but can't refuse you. I can obey you not dismay you.
I can lift you but not let you down, to see you smile and never frown...
"....desiring that NONE IS LOST!" TOTAL TRUTH!
Death is "inevitable! Eternity is "never ending!" Heaven is for real! The "Lake of Fire" is for real! I wouldn't wish that on my "worst enemy!" Therefore, "Regardless of what you believe you see, hear and think about me, the truth is "My desire is NONE is lost!"

Is there truth to this statement: If you love two people it means you're not "in love" with either?

If you disagree with the Bible, please do not spam this thread.If you do you are being rude and I will quote the OP and report the issue for hupages to decide whether it violates forum rules or not.This thread is to understand the Bible as it presents itself, and this thread is not for questioning...

do you really believe that world is 6k years old only or consider it as different scale?

How much do you care about what others think about you?Let's assume you're a decent human being. Do you care what complete strangers think about what you wear, what you read, how your hair is, or whether you're in a relationship or not?
by just_curious 11 years ago
I enjoy hearing people’s opinions; to a point, like most everyone. I sometimes wonder, when the conversations become heated, if everyone remembers that truth in many things is little more than the sum total of each individual’s experiences. I’m curious how anyone becomes set in a system of beliefs...
