I've always lived on the basis of living life in the middle, not wanting to be the best and not wanting to be the worst, just being noticed enough but not in the spot light, spot light highlights to many flaws, I call this living in the shadows, there is a balance to this, but there is also flaws, main flaws are you always get noticed for things that go wrong but never noticed for the things you do right, when your helpful its expected of you, when your not then your at fault, your not always treated the best, but I guess that's the price to pay, is it a high price I'm not sure but its the choice I've made!! Who really wants to ride high with praise, be thanked for doing there job, be asked there opinion, nope the shadows are the place to be quietly being the hero that everyone needs but never admits to knowing
I agree with alot of what you said. I never pushed to be the best or the worst, just me. I love to help others and am often hurt in the process. But I pick myself up, dust myself off, and get back up and do it all over again. My purpose in life is to help people, not to gain from helping them. I want people to be happy, feel good about themselves, smile once in awhile. I definitely do those things from the shadows sometimes because I don't live for recognition. But sometimes it's okay to be "out there" in the world, having a legitimate support system of friends and colleagues, if only just via email/internet.
Just my opinion but I'm glad you're here. I hope things are going good for you:) Have a great evening:)
Thank you for your kind words, really appreciated
If you are aiming for mediocrity, then HubPages is the right place for you.
Wow. I guess you haven't looked around enough. I've seen a lot of talent here. Yes, a bit of trash as well but such is the WORLD. Not to mention myself, not gonna lie, I have skill. If your convinced that's the case.. Why stay here? To bring others down? Hubpages used to be, still is about inspiration and encouragement and jewels along the shore, not blanket statements based in insecurity and shallow will.
I don't want to burst your bubble. It ain't about professional writing. It is a good place for a hobbyist or catalog content writer who wants to work for eight cents a day. There are a few exceptions. How many macaroon recipes does the world need?
This bubble is made of steel. Have fun trying to pop it

Hiding in the shadows with love and tenderness and hero moments in our hearts is wonderful. But eventually, someone always comes along with a flashlight shining their light looking for truth. If not you, who will tell them about the wisdom's you've gleamed hiding? If no one sees your light, how will they know you are not just of the dark?

The most common stock response you get from anyone who hears of a policy that directly or indirectly invades their privacy is “I’ve got nothing to hide”. First let’s analyse the statement closely. Its first assumption is that anybody who claims their right to privacy clearly has something to...

I hope I've put this in the right section. Reading people by their photographs.I've always wondered about this because it seems its something I'm able to do quite accurately at least for most people, so I've been told by those I've read. I don't predict futures or know intimate details of said...
