Realised too late.... or then again... is it?


Perhaps not, if you can pick up the whittlings and rebuild a new you.

And then the effort remains.... rebuild a 95% negative me or a +51% positive me
(ref. the HiddenHand thread)
I often feel like I'm landing in the section of indifference because I can't seem to choose either.

Yup the hidden hand story is a bit like that: he plays his role, we play ours...

No moral judgment, people do what they do, who knows why...

just be what you are, live your character...

If you your role has a lot of indecision, live it, you cant avoid being you (that character) its just not possible.

The actor wants to live all that through you.

Wow. I just read a description of myself. The chameleon, able to slot in anywhere and quickly grasp and understand "people" and concepts quickly and comfortably.
This ability comes from wearing many hats, reading, and being exposed and partaking in a wide range of practical endeavours over a life..... But where to specialise? Where is our niche?
Too many passions and an addiction to curiosity that is easily fed by the World Wide Web at our fingertips.
I would pay a kings ransom for the answer.

Exactly.... I remember back when I was younger and got home from high school, I would toss my self on the bed, turn on my tv and watch "The Pretender" series. If you take away that characters running from demons issue, I really looked up to him how he was able to fit in literally everywhere.

But yes, the addiction to curiosity and need for change, sparks a constant need for change. Ofcourse this could also have been fueled by the fact that I moved around a lot when I was a kid (just in the same town, you know, from one apartment to the next and so on... for no particular reason other than my parents always wanted something a little better), I think I live 6 different places from I was born till the age of 18.

So I'm already rootless by nature, but I find that being that way is generally not accepted in society and since I like to fit in, it's an uphill battle. Got even "worse" when I had my first kid, since having kids totally kills the possibility to move around or do random things at will. Who knows, maybe I shouldn't have had kids, but I love them to death, so I won't leave them.

Manula, you said just live it, but that's just the thing. I can't align myself with being an indecisive character. I honestly feel like my character should be focused and single minded, but is that idea mine? Or is that something branded into me by society?
