The very purpose of existence is to reconcile the glowing opinion we have of ourselves with the appalling things that other people think about us.

So very true.

What made you think of posting that?

A friend recently had a revelation they did not like. It seems their glowing opinion of themself is nonexistent but the quote made me think of them anyhow.

Huh. I thought he was the most insecure person here. Too bad I've lost interest already or I might have continued the guessing game.

Ouch. I wouldn't have ascribed the word "insecure" to him or to the person in question.

Oh, sorry then. I mistook your 'their glowing opinion of themself is nonexistent' line to mean that they were insecure about themselves. Manuel is insecure when it comes to being so sure that everyone hates him and not being able to take a joke about harmless ogling.

I don't always equate low self-esteem with insecurity. One is generally present where the other is but I don't think they're exactly the same thing. Maybe it's just the way I think of it. And I don't think Manuel is insecure in that view, I think he's cynical and he has a track record to give him reason to be. Though he does need to lighten up about the ogling.

Yes, maybe you're right about the cynical, and he certainly has a reason to be. I think we should double-team him and ogle some more, until he's over it. It's for his own good.

Next thing I know you're going to propose hugging him every time we see him and I think he might start to consider beating us with that cane of his if we did.

From: [identity profile] x-adrienne.livejournal.com
That's a brilliant idea! If we both wanted to die by caning, like you said. Which I don't. I'll ogle. I'm not touching. Some of us have touch issues that aren't resolved yet. And I'm not just talking about me.

He just really, really likes his personal space. Which I really, really don't care about. Hey, you can only give someone so much personal space when you need to be in contact for at least ninety minutes. Personal space is overrated sometimes.

Please refrain from talking about me like this in public. It is not appreciated.

I always preferred our country wisdom, 'You're your own worst critic.'

I think that depends upon how high your opinion of yourself is. I've met many people who are their own biggest fan.

I like when the world has depth like that.

Well it does make things a little less monotonous, that's for sure.

I think it shows we'll always have a lot more to learn and I like that.

I think I might like you even more for that.

I'm glad to hear that... and be liked... Thank you. For the liking me. That you're doing.

Wow, that was filled with awkward even from this side of the screen. Keep it up and I'll make it my personal mission to try to make you blush, Guthrie.

From: [identity profile] x-cannonball.livejournal.com
You mean your mission to see me blush. I bet you'll want to hear me say "Aww, shucks" too.

Date: 2008-12-31 12:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-copycat.livejournal.com
Does that mean I've already made you blush? I've missed out on what I'm sure is the devastatingly adorable sight of you blushing? Damn!

That depends, do you actually say "Aww, shucks"?
