"Talking may stir up some touchy emotions right now, but it's always better to get things out in the open than to keep them deep inside, isn't it? Do a quick inventory of what you have worked on lately in your personal life. What do you want to stop or rid yourself of? It may be time for a clean sweep."

Couldn't suit today's mood better, and this time I read it *after* my mood was established, so no self-fulfilling prophecy.

I'm tired of repetition without evolution and spinning wheels without movement. Relationships are a reflection of how you feel about yourself, so seek out and develop only the best ones.

""'I can never say what I want to say,' contintued Naoko. 'It's been like this for awhile now. I try to say something, but all I get are the wrong words- the wrong words or the exact opposite words from what I mean. I try to correct myself, and that only makes it worse. I lose track of what I was trying to say to begin with. It's like I'm split in two and playing tag with myself. One half is chasing the other half around this big, fat post. The other me has the right words, but this me can't catch her.'"

"Hiro, you are such a geek. She's a woman, you're a dude. You're not supposed to understand her. That's not what she's after...She doesn't want you to understand her. She knows that's impossible. She just wants you to understand yourself. Everything else is negotiable."

Just a word of warning: Beware that you yourself are not causing this. It is not always easy to set someone free of old roles and projections, and set yourself free of basing judgments upon those roles and projections. If you have needed things to be different, be sure that they are not different in reality before your sweeping begins.

Make sure your present decision are based on the present and not on a past that is no longer applicable.

::narrowed eyes::

My initial response to that comment was anger. But, I will think about it and get back to you. Although, I am fairly sure I am not doing what you suggest -- based on the information I actually have there is no reason for me to think the present is anything other than I think it is. Am I basing my views of the present on old roles and projections from the past? Yes, I am, in part. But, I do not believe that is incorrect in this case because there is little to indicate to me that things are otherwise. So, perhaps better to say not that I am basing my judgment on past roles, but that I am calling roles as I see them based on the present and ::shrug:: if they happen to come up called the same as they were in the past, that is not me being mistaken.

But. I will think about it.
