o.k....so i overanalyze EVERYTHING and i am far too intense. Unfortunately, this is my personality and there is not much i can do about it if i want to continue to be true to myself. my intensity bothers others and i can sense it so usually i don't talk about what's on my mind. then when i become consumed with thought and decide that i need answers i finally open up. this makes some people uncomfortable, others mad, and others withdraw....or all of the above. my questions may or may not get answered but either way, the one questioned has pulled away from me. i have experienced this phenomenon over and over again and i continue in this pattern...yet another personality flaw i suppose. so, i have come to my own conclusion about people in general (including myself): people become withdrawn from others not because they don't want to share their thoughts, feelings, hopes, dreams, complaints, etc., but because of the way others react or the fear of how others are going to react. it doesn't take a genius to figure out this life puzzle....it just takes some of us a lot of time to accept that this is the way life is. it's a shame.....i know many people that would be happier if they could just say what is on their minds. oh well. love you all.
