on the topic of me not being able to talk with people. how can i tell? if some people say i'm a fantastic conversationalist, and other people hear me talk selfishly.. given my own experience, i can only conclude that when i feel comfortable i let go enough to leave space for everyone, and when i am nervous i feel desperation to "be interesting" which usually results in me talking about my self.
well, it seems clear that I should just keep on trying to be comfortable with everyone, as opposed to devising some strategy or system under which i learn to follow normal conversational patterns. i know i can do that. but breathing and feeling comfort comes from so deep, and can be done naturally I dare not ruin its beauty with even more logic.

More techniques to balance your mind/body/spirit & how different ailments come from different dosha imbalances.. Like Acne! and Anger!

  1. maybe you can reframe what you call selfish into a grand ability to open up inside of various spaces. i guess i've seen you probably open up when you both feel comfortable and feel uncomfortable. i guess i remember it being a learning curve when we first lived in same house in regards your ability to, what appeared to me, as opening up, expressing yourself however felt good to you, right then. and i believe i've heard you say it different ways, like as if you weren't really openign up all the time but that you felt at times it was a coping method for other more complex emotions inside... and that makes sense to me. but i want to share that through our different modes of operandi i've let you be a huge inspiration to me. here's maybe some inspiration for you: last night i found myself around old friends of mine who are always interested in seeing me and willing to give me attention and it is with comfortable people that i'm able to open up and shine a little so i let words and words come out of me and not crumble under the pressure of attention. afterwards upon reflection i had the thoughts of 'oh i almost wish i had remembered, through my hyperness to, to reciprocate and ask them something, or have expressed the gratitude i felt during that moment and thank them intentionally for the space.' And it got me thinking to how because of the way our society is, there aren't spaces that are usually created for everyone to have equal sharing time, and instead our get together are often spontaneous and unstructured and at the whim of outside linear time that cuts up our interactions into convenient small segments. so, because this is how our interactions usually are, i come to the conclusion that it could be everyones responsibility to allow sharing time as needed for everyone involved, and that sometimes its goign to be one-sided in a moment, and that ultimately we can work on the balance inside between listening and speaking... maybe you know from your spirit that expressing yourself is really important and you are going to gratefully take the offered space to express, and then like wise be aware of the gratefulness and the role to help create balance in that moment by offering others the same opportunity, or later by being a good listener for someone else, etc etc etc
