Yes. As conducive conditions arise, it will be made possible.

It's not about saying it but feeling it.

You are right. I should care less about those things and my perception of being misunderstood. If I read you're posts you say you understand me quite well. Even though I see myself differently than what you make me out to be in your responses

I guess I must be misunderstanding myself then. Maybe I am not open enough. Maybe I don't understand enough. How could I miss what you seem to perceive so clearly.

See what i did there?
I showed something, but i'm guessing it will be explained as either sarcasm or repressed emotion.

What I tried to do was show that my intended message does not necessarily line up with your felt understanding of that message.

Suddenly reminded of a song by Tommy Iommy and Ozzy.

I pick at scabs too as well as linger..


Eeewwwy, scab picking..yucky! Im turned right off you now.

As for understanding you, understanding your emotional outpouring is pretty obvious. Even when you were upset last week, your feelings were apparent without being spoken. As for today, you said why you were sad and gave reason.

You show what you want in this thread. But sometimes we don't get what we want and we make choices or react in ways that shows itself off quite strongly. SO that "feel" level from you has been pretty obvious.

I don't need to show you anything, you know yourself best.

My conversations and comments, were only based on the moments I was aware of you. It doesn't tell your life story and I hear your points beyond feel level, when your not so antsy pantsy about things. Sometimes I choose not to hear them, because I know your feel level isn't clear. I am that good you know..hehe



Understanding can be born through each moment shared, it shows you in that moment. Moment to moment, whether it stays the same or shifts, I can see the difference in myself and others in this way, because I notice myself that way.

Did you know the more clear you are at the "feel" level, not containing what you would like to share and need, it comes across more clear and direct. You know people actually listen and take notice, but if your all wrapped up in yourself and being all antsy pantsy, the message and request will fall on deaf ears. Not always but sometimes for someone very aware of the underlying movements.

For you thinker types, it doesn't register of course until you gain the bigger picture, collate all data and then whosh, you spring forth like madam butterfly..Its worth waiting for.

Yawn..

Keep feeling clueless one..
Don't hold your breath for whilst waiting on this thinker type to spring forth.
You may suffocate.

Keep believing your interpretation of what I say from within the confines of what you think you know. I guess it's valuable to you.

With Love
Eelco

This isn't a personal discussion, it isn't right to discuss emotions in this place. This place is not a safe place suited to disclosures and feelings. Now I could see what was coming, and I mentioned these concerns to people in PM, and now it has come about. The thread has gone as far as it can go and has gone where there is more harm than good. There is nothing of benefit here anymore.
