I'm thinking about compassion, and kindness. It's funny, I thought well of most people for years, thought they were all far above me -- the only negative thing being that, y'know, they were surely not to be trusted and would do me harm if given half a chance, but otherwise, lovely people, lovely people. My attitude's changed. It's not secret that I'm harsh on myself, but I've been directing that critical side outwards. The reverse of how it worked with the violent impulses I had to rein in after school finished - they were still there, just no threats to focus them on. Perhaps it's the same way. Thinking more kindly of myself, the vicious feelings need somewhere to go? I should join a sports team or get activist-y about something, direct that aggression at the other side.
By the way, do any of you have Facebook and play games like Mafia Wars and Cafe World and so on? I and some nice friends of mine have got into them, and would like more people to join our ranks. I don't really want to post my facebook link here, but will PM it to anyone who asks, or add if you post your link in comments or PM.
