Well, I didn't want to sound too harsh, so I apologize if I came off like that. I know it can be hard to talk to other people, as, for example, I'm not always in the mood to talk with my colleagues. But I know myself how annoying it can be to have to deal with someone who doesn't speak more than three words, so I can't say being taciturn is a virtue. And there it is then, it then, my shunning other people also is a way in which I suck. Of course this is less so than if actively bothered other people, but still, it's not really nice.danyo wrote:I agree with your post and all, but that one kinda put me off, it kinda depends on how you describe recently, but, even if I go as far back as a year, I'm not sure if I even talked to that many people... at least not more then a single line exchange out of courtesy. So it's kinda hard for me to put myself in that way of thinking.Beoran wrote: It's true that people can suck, but so do I, so do we. If I think for five minutes I can come up with at least 3 ways I've treated other people badly as well recently.
In stead, I want to be as friendly as is practically possible to everyone around me. Possibly I'll never reach that goal, but it's the direction I want to go towards. Admitting to my shortcomings, however without agonizing over them is the start. I know it can be off-putting to think about my own shortcomings when I'm feeling down, but I think it's still important to do this, to keep my own arrogance in check. Of course, I don't forget about my own good points too, so I can lighten up if that's needed. I just want to have a realistic view on myself.
