I am not a person of restraint.
For that reason it is probably a tremendously good thing I grew up in a conservative environment that discouraged drinking, drugs, and other frivolous activities. I love frivolity.
When I travel, I want to be gone for a couple of weeks, and stop everywhere, and buy everything. None of this "we see only what we came to see" nonsense.
When I make a batch of cookies I want to eat them all. Fairly immediately.
When I find a Television show I really enjoy, I want to watch it all. Even if that means a week strait of almost no other activities.
And yet, my sense of timidity can overpower me sometimes.
I have habit of assuming people are above me, and am easily intimidated. Hence the fact that I have never been good at mingling with strangers.
I don't like calling the bank. Bank people are scary.
I am often afraid to be myself for fear that people will think I am "weird", or unappealing. This means I am also guilty of acting how I think people would like me to be, rather than I how I would naturally choose to be.
Here is to being whoever and however I am, embracing those who take me, and not worrying a tittle about those who might not.
