HOW I CURED MYSELF FROM HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS! Who will believe that the herb can cure herpes? I never thought this would work, I have spent a lot on getting meds at the hospital to stay healthy, I reached a point where all I was waiting for was death because I was broke, one day I found out about this cool man named DR. MOHAMMED, which is well known for curing cancer, diabetes, HIV, fibroids, hepatitis B, HSV, HPV, and herpes. I decided to contact him, I didn't believe him too much, I just wanted to give him a try, he answered my email and needed information about me, then I sent it to him, he made an herbal medicine and sent it to me. Via DHL for delivery, he gave my information to the DHL office, they told me that in 3-4 days I will receive the package and after receiving it I took the medicine as prescribed by him, after finishing the medicine he told me, I went to the hospital for a check-up, and I went, surprisingly after the test the doctor confirmed me negative for the herpes simplex virus, I thought it was a joke, I went to another hospital and it was also negative, thanks for saving my life. , I promise you that I will always testify to your good work. If you are a patient with the herpes simplex virus, contact him and I assure you that you will be absolutely cured. (EMAIL; herbalcure12@gmail.com) You can call him or add him on WhatsApp .. (+ 2349036036397).         .........................

One hindrance that I find is the competitive feel we have and others have to prove and show to others ( maybe it’s just in our heads ) And the other more like I have to be like that out of what my family and friends expects from me or wants from me To be more accepted I guess There is more it’s like process going inside trying to figure out I try to like let’s find out the problem and then I get stuck with the problem I don’t even know if I’m making any sense to anyone

This is like the opposite belief of how I was raised. I was told to be who society expects you to be. To work in an office, bury your head, live in your gender lane. It's more important to be accepted and safe than to be yourself. After going to college and years of therapy for depression I realized how different my parents and I really are.

Your only job on the planet, while your here is to love your neighbour as yourself. But the trouble is that before you have any chance of achieving this impossible goal in any form that resembles consistency, you an I need to clean up our hearts. How? Before anyone can achieve this, we have to long for truth and love above all else. This is why the greatest commandment is to love God with everything you have. For God is the truth, the way and the life. Before we can do that humility is required. An acceptance that we are not who we can and should be. So if we want to have a better self image, we have to be honest and realise we need help -- our makers help. He wants to help.

It's all well and good telling people to be themselves or find yourself.but did it never occur to you that your mind tries to protect you from finding out who you are . A few years ago I wanted to commit suicide ,I had it all planned out ,the place ,method and time ,I didn't do it ( obviously) because when it came down to it I didn't have the nerve . Incidentally there is no such thing as attempted suicide ,you either do it or you don't want to , no-one fails. I was angry with myself for not going through with it but decided if I can't do it I'm going to have to be honest with myself. Stop blaming others for my situation. My wife had an affair which obviously hurt me ,but what stuck with me was when she said I deliberately got her pregnant to trap her . It wasn't true at all but to say it let alone think it she must have believed it . So I made a list of my fav movies ,TV shows and books and tried to see what common denominator drew me to those movies etc The lead characters were always the same ,lone wolf types that drew people to them without them really trying ,so naturally I subconsciously saw myself that way .and when something happened to challenge that view I blamed anything and everything to protect myself from the reality When I was a kid I got bullied ,I put that down to my height and the fact I was the youngest in my year , When I was 18 I went to a nightclub in a town 20 miles away with a group of friends ,a mix up on the return journey meant one of our group would have make their own way home ,me I put it down to Zi was the most capable of dealing with the situation etc . I could go on.The truth is I'm a wallflower ,an unpopular nobody who even my wife didn't want to be with. I was happier living a lie ,being yourself does not suit many of us . Remember that when you give people life advice because we are not always going to benefit from it . I genuinely hope you read this and it makes you think about what advice you give in future .

Hmm. I mostly liked this but I'm not happy with the ending: 'if you tap into being yourself you might be the youngest gold medalist ever' etc. etc. etc. Why not 'if you tap into yourself you might be truly happy.' Why does she present the goal as some kind of big recognizable public achievement? To be fair, she does initially define success people as those who become the person they want to be. Nothing wrong with the big public recognitions but I find the pressure to be extraordinary often gets shorthanded to some kind of notable public recognition which, I think, equals the approval of others, which seems to be at odds with the rest of her message.

True Mirror-JWalter

its actually different when its full sized, in 3D and where you can make direct eye contact. no camera and screen can duplicate that. when you make eye contact, that's when you can communicate who and what and how you are, and perhaps even better answer why you are. the backwardsness of your eyes changes that and you don't really see yourself, you see a doppelganger that really acts and feels differently than whatever is actually you and how you are with others (unreversed). the True Mirror gets you in sync with yourself, inside and out. But you have to look and observe, interact and communicate for this fundamental benefit of the True Mirror to be given you you.

So when I was 0-4 i was a perfect, or at least a good "I"? Considering I don't remember myself from that time frame, and everything after, 5 years and onwards, was a very influenced-by-societal-norms kind of "I", where does one look for information on one's identity? Is it through intuition? "those afraid of being themselves will work for those not afraid" Maybe so but maybe no. Some people, I've come to believe, feel more comfortable having accepted playing out a persona than challenging themselves to discover the "true I". It's not like authenticity equals contendness or capability. it's a nice speech though, a lot of good points raised
