so I was thinking.....

So a friend of mine on MySpace just posted this bulletin (answers removed to protect parties involved) and it got me to thinking....

if you get more than 30 I strongly recommend some counseling!
If you get more than 20 you’re paranoid.

If you get 10-20 then u are normal.

If you get 10 or less you’re fearless.

People who don’t have any are full of it.

So yeah, I would have to disagree with the statement at the beginning of this.. "people who have none [fears] are full of it" no, people who have no fear understand what this life is about, and that it doesn't matter what anybody thinks, it doesn't matter what happens to you. If you know where you're going, know who you are, and know why you're here, then you have nothing to fear. My mom once told me of a sermon that she heard... the main message was that all fear was, is False Evidence Appearing Real. So while yes, at times I experience apprehension, or mild trepidation, it's not fear. You see the problem for what it is, realize that it's nothing that you can't handle, and stop being afraid of it.
I'm one of those people. At times people say I come off as cocky, or arrogant, so what? Self confidence is knowing who you are, and that nothing anybody else says amounts to a hill of beans. And when you're not afraid of anything, yeah, it can appear cocky. So that was my random vent for the day! Hope y'all have a good one!
later days,
