From October of 2006:
1) People are inherently selfish. Some of them very much so.
2) Spidey senses are valid when the intuition is properly plugged into the world
3) The things we find most distressing about others (i.e. being untrustworthy) are often manifestations of how we see ourselves.
4) Emotional memories can last longer than intellectual memories.
What does that say about us human type people? We are confused paradoxes.
How does this fit together? I've found that acknowledging my human weakness (#3) mellows me to the asses that other people can be (#1). The Spidey senses (#2) help me get through situations that are black-n-white (like what is???). It's #4 that still kicks me in the butt, and this is what I struggle with. I do OK with current relationships. I take the lumps with those who have "wronged" me in the past. Forgive? Maybe. Forget? I'll think about it. That's what my emotional side says.
