Suspicious Minds

I don't trust my own mind these days, so I am opening the floor to you, dear friends. This is the first of several headlines meant to generate some discussion. I shall try to participate, but as I said, I'm sort of losing it right now. The saboteur is in full effect and I don't like it. Is it possible not to destroy the ones you love?

Suspicious Minds - I like Dwight Yoakam's version better than Elvis'. Is that so wrong?

Suspicion and jealousy are two of the most destructive forces I can think of and I'm not really sure at what point I let them go. Maybe when I realized that I was better than everyone else on earth.

They used to be a problem for me and I think it traces back to feeling like you're not good enough when really, you're more than good enough, you just haven't told yourself yet and believed it.

Do you want a cuddle?

Dale- I actually like Waylon Jennings version of the song better than Dwight's or Elvis'. Weird, huh?

But yes, you are right. Destructive thinking is bad for me. I feel like a crazy person sometimes. There is something really fucked up about needing the approval of one person in particular... That person is usually a total idiot, unable to recognize genius if it sat on his face and did a samba... Anyway, I'm over it.

Ziggy- Yes, please.

Glad you're not beating yourself up too much Saviour. It's tough feeling out of control but it's probably more common a feeling than most would admit. As you can probably tell, there are lots of people who recognize your talent and approve of you.

Waylon huh? I'm going to have to check that out momentarily.

i like to think things are much simpler than they are. you cant eat a cake in one big bite right. its like in math class... do the easy part first then work your way thru the whole problem.
i may not be the smartest person in the world but i like the kiss method.... keep it simple stupid.
it works for me. lots of people say i dont deal with any thing. the reality of it is i do. i just do it one bite at a time. i mean if you try and put both your legs in your pants at the same time your going to fall on your face right?
any way thats just my 2 cents...
but just like the name i may be pretty delusional

Yet another detail you have failed to notice about me, Delusioneer, is that I can eat a cake in one bite! I can also eat a math class in one bite, if you're curious...

The problem I have with the Keep It Simple Stupid philosophy is that some things are complex... Like emotions, at least they are complex for me or maybe I'm not stupid enough to figure out how to simplify the vast and raging sea of emotion in me.

Thanks for the 2 cents, though. Here's a dollar, go buy something pretty.

My mind seems not to trust ME and has gone on sabbatical, so I have nothing to offer to this discussion. I am too busy wallowing in my own pool of resentful laziness to deal with your problems right now.

Sorry.

Willie Waylon and Me huh? I really don't know what to say hon. I would like to think that I stopped giving a shit what anyone thought of me a long time ago, but it isn't true. As much as I rail against the idea of needing a certain person's approval of my life's path, I really secretly do need it. I just go on trying to concentrate on doing what I do, making my life/world a better place, and trying to make myself happy. I think you're amazing though, if that helps any xo
