Sano

(no subject)

I'd like to ask, since there are two people now who keep pointing out that others have bad opinions of me but don't tell me, that if you have a bad opinion of me, you should either bring it up with me so that we can see if it's valid (and I'll readily admit if it is, or if you can show me that it is, I'll readily change my opinion of myself), or you should tell me, "Hey, I have a bad opinion of you," so that I know that there's no point in talking to you.

I think that's a large part of the problem - I like the people I hang out with, but I can't relate to any of them.


[taken from:

JimBob4554: I wish I could go back to when I felt part of a group. Back to the gamer days in early high school. I don't want to lose everyone I have now.. but things were better back then. (Stereotypical - "things were better in the past." I know that I wasn't happy as such - I was almost constantly depressed - but I'm worse now than I was then, I know that, and then, I had a better support group and people I could relate to. I think that's a large part of the problem - I like the people I hang out with, but I can't relate to any of them.)]

I think that's part of the reason I turn to Slater sometimes. He's got a good head on his shoulders and can examine things and make good judgements, but also, he makes me feel like I'm part of something. Because he was part of what I was part of - and a very large and important part of it at that.

*am part of. While the gamer group isn't seen together very often anymore, it's still a closer-knit feeling than anything else I've encountered outside of my family. (And yes, Leah and Amanda - you're part of this too.)
