Be Honest with Me... Your Turn
January 17, 2009 7:54am CST
Most people here don't know me, or only know me from what Tessah has told them about me, so I probably do not suffer the chance of being overly critisized, but I am doing this nonetheless because I answered hers. If you think you can form an opinion about me, then spill it and lets see what happens!

i tried to respond to this the day you had responded to mine, and couldnt. i was still too emotional from the words youd written, and the screen kept blurring. with this last weeks contemplative analyzations and the emotions surrounding them, ive realized maybe it isnt such a great thing that we dont get with the "how do i love thee`s" more often. maybe we should. so here is what ive had running through my mind, that i now share with you.. and anyone else who cares to read it. youre determined, focused and highly motivated. i cant think of anything that you dont excell at as soon as you step into it. others look to you with awe and respect.. im one of them. your capacity for love and compassion astounds me. there isnt anyone you wouldnt help, give counsel to, and see the good in, regardless of the outer shell the rest of the world views. youd give the very shirt off yer back if itd benefit another.. and ive seen you do this. you sacrifice yerself to so many on a daily basis, even at the expense of yerself. something ive always chided you for because sometimes itll leave you broken, but its something ive always secretly admired, and wished id be more like you with. your spontaneity and fun loving attitudes are contagious. anyone within earshot of your laughter can`t help but be infected by it.. and it always makes me smile when i hear it, even if ive no clue what it is thats brought on your outburst of happiness. you inspire others to greatness without words, but by example. a quiet force of nature that can change the tides with a simple whisper. your gentle strength amazes me beyond imagination. and when you do speak.. you can pull everyone around you that may be falling down in despair, back to their feet with your eloquence. i love your intelligence and wit, your charm and grace. your deep subtle sensuality that draws like a moth to the flame. after all these years.. you still make that *ooomph* at the core of me by simply walking through the door. i love the way you challenge my mind and my heart to reach higher levels. you make me laugh, even when i dont want to. you make me think, even when im being closed minded. you open my eyes when im blinded. you make me better. you make me... more. youre the most decent, honest and honorable man i have ever known. i admire and love you more than words can begin to do justice.

That's a hard one. I love you to pieces, like I love Tess. We haven't ever spent much time around each other... but we are not unknown quantities to each other. You tend to procrastinate, but don't we all? You are a great father; the Sprite adores you. You are a loyal friend, sometimes so loyal it blinds you. You latch onto an idea or project, and you pursue it with single-minded determination, sometimes at the expense of other ideas and projects. You give of yourself, and you hurt easily; but you forgive easily as well. Overall, you are a wonderful, sensitive, caring man who feels and heals the pain of others, often at your own expense. I could keep rambling all day, but I won't lol.

you are right, i dony know you. but i could say fot your question that you are a very solitaire person and with a low self esteem. Why do you need other people to tell you what they think about you? i mean everybody needs attention, afection, and reassurance, but normally the natural and spontaneous is sufficient. And another thing its strange with you is the fact that you opened the umbrella before it starts to rain: the chance of beeing overly critizised. i hope you take it well, but i think you must get on high and feed your self esteem yourself. know who you are, what you have done, i am sure you are a lot, but you cannot see it.

lol im sorry .. but Oakshaman isnt in need of ego stroking or trying to make himself feel better about himself. but since you dont know the origins of where this discussion spawned, yer forgiven my husband wrote this in response to something id posted.. which is why the title includes the "your turn" within it.
