What's up wit dat?

PFan, as I alluded to the other day, I used to be a little like you in that I argued a lot. A fucking lot. Sometimes it made me feel better, sometimes not, but it was almost reflex. Sometime after HS but before finishing College, I realzied that it was getting too mentally fatiguing for me. I slowly...very slowly....started to argue less and less....that instinct is still alive inside of me, but, I pick my spots fairly well these days.

And, when I say cathartic, I do not necessarily mean that I write about a problem, and the problem is solved, I just mean that getting it out is a bit cleansing. Some of the very issues I'd argue about I'd also write about....this way, I'd have an emotional response, but I'd also have a more measured, clinical response as well.

It's not easy to be expected to handle yourself in a certain manner when you have such a tidal wave of feelings and emotions flowing inside of you....writing has always helped me out a bit with it all, though.

Fan fiction involving real life people is always dicey.

I like to read the stuff on this site to feel better about my own writing skills.

I'm watching About a Boy. And it feels great!

Yeah, I didn't think you meant that by cathartic. I meant more about the cleansing. I meant I don't feel like writing about it has helped me out much.

For the arguing, I just hate the idea of telling people to shut up. I always admit when I've done something wrong, but I always want people to know where I'm coming from. I think perspective is very important in understanding people and situations, and I get the most frustrated when perspective is ignored. I don't like being told why I did something or why I feel a certain way. I know what I'm doing. For example, I've always wanted to go see a psychologist just to test it out for fun, but I secretly know that it would end in my arguing and defending myself when the psychologist tries to make observations. I'd dispute everyone, I'm sure. I come off as someone with very set in stone beliefs, but it's not my beliefs that are usually set in stone as much as it is my faith in my own thought processes and reasoning. I like the way my mind processes information and draws conclusions. That's the one thing I don't want to alter. And, in that sense, I think that's the only thing that gets me angry: something that I feel is an attack on my thought process.

It counts as a Christmas movie because Will's dad wrote that song "Santa's Super Sleigh."

So yeah. I'm watching a Christmas movie.

I understand, and while I could reply in full, I'll just say that I totally know where you're coming from......very much so.....and the slight advice I'd give you would be to be sure that you are also always listening. Always listening. You'll tell me that you do, but, still.....make sure you're really listening. And, in real life, telling people to shut up is a bad idea, agreed.
