I am sick right now so besides the daily duties and having to go eat and all I am staying indoors. Colds are not fun, though no illness is, except
perhaps as a child and able to miss out on school, but even then the feeling of illness was a drag. I've been reading through threads, both new
and...well in this sub-forum. For no other reason, but curiosity as to what people post here and seeing as to some extent(not very deep) this area of
discussion interests me. Frankly, I'm not sure I'll post this as relationship advice just doesn't seem to fit the charm of ATS, except perhaps in
the extreme cases, which this is not one of. I suppose out of boredom this will be shared.
I'm curious how it is that people manage to get themselves out there, both in quest of romance and in quest of friendship. Not to suggest that I have
a problem with this. I am not a very social person(much less now with this illness), but I have a few friends who can be trusted, though now they are
geographically far away. A couple romances, but sadly those ended and a couple attempts that ended up failing. But no one always succeeds and failure
should be more drive for success rather than detrimental to the drive.
I believe that there are numerous reasons to go out and discuss without fear and full of confidence.
-The inevitability of death.
-What's the worse that could happen?
-You can only win in the long run.
-If you do not you will only wonder "What if?" and hope for an opportunity to come about again.
Among other reasons I am sure. The purpose of this thread perhaps is to see what gives everyone their confidence to be social or outgoing(in any
extent). I gave my list above. And perhaps for myself(beside the original purpose and gathering information/advice this could be an initiation thread
for me though my only one in this sub-forum).
