People talk to themselves?

I at least talk to the penguin that lives in my bathtub.

And he smokes too.

I bet you're all jealous.

I found out the hard way how scary i got when everything in my life was taken away from me. a person that has lost everything is a very dangerous person. I had nothing more to lose. i entertained some very scary thoughts, none of which i carried out, I lost everything in my divorce. anger is a very scary emotion

Nobody knows exactly who they are because even if you are humble and willing to admit your flaws

Hello me, its nice talking to myself, a true credit to dementia.....

Self discovery is a constant process we are always growing and changing so to ever claim to know yourself completely is foolish. Also, we all have bias, self image and personal filters so we do not se ourselves as we are but rather how we wish to see ourselves, which often times is different. It occurs to me that the more you know the more you realise how little you know thus claiming you know everything about yourself would imply....

In order to truly know oneself, you would have to be completely separate from self to observe without context, there is an entire branch of religion based on this, they are called the ascetics, they go off in the bush, have no possesions and try to channel themselves into things like rocks, trees, birds,and so forth. Now while most think this is to experience other things truthfully it is self discovery because you are dropping your self image in the hopes of being able to truly see yourself as you are without your mud of experiences dirtying the lens.

I have a good idea of who i am....but i know that it is always changing so i just try to find the systems of which i work. In the end, i am a very simple creature so long as i accept the dynamic quality inherent to sentience. I think this is what the OP is trying to get at, altho very few people will get that. Tthe trickiest part of knowledge is trying to communicate it with others cause ideas are often hard to translate to words... but we attempt anyways...

When I see people getting funding who are capable of work, it angers me. If somebody can spend time browsing internet forums, posting, volunteering, etc.


How do you know these people are capable of work? And/or what their limits are...

... seems to me, people who truly know if someone is capable of work would be either a medical registered doctor or a friend/family member, as well as they would actually know them and/or have walked in their shoes with the same ailments/symptons/syndromes/diseases as the person who in not able to work


like people who claim they're unable to work, yet are somehow able to post on internet forums quite a bit!
....as for this statement...again... you do not know what people's limits are physical/cognitive or physcological...unless your a doctor, friend or family member.


Its great if you want to encourage people to work, people who you actually know, have met and understand their stand point from a medical perspective and their personal perspective. So why not start your own forum/thread... to do just this...rather then making assumptions about people & drawing your own conclusions when you have never met them!!

On topic- Figure out which personality your gonna use to counsel people!! LOL

from thread..."DOES SOMEONE JOBS REALLY MATTER?"... This is my post...which addresses helping people...in reference to the above post by myself & phatjesus


so does a job really matter?.... as I have posted earlier in this thread...my job is to lead my life with meaning and purpose.... if you're not able to work...for whatever reason... maybe your job, and meaning and purpose...is to "lend a helping hand to someone that needs a fresh start" in whatever context that you can help someone make steps at regaining their sense of pride..."to feel like they are still a prominent but more importantly, a valued person in our society"
