Oh and a PS – I’m not a role model – I just am what I am. I’m a disturbingly honest person – at least disturbing to some people. I lie sometimes, usually for humor but thankfully I’ve got a deep heart and not a sociopath, which is what would happen if I really didn’t care what other people think. I do care – sometimes too deeply – which is why I’ve developed so many survival techniques / coping skills.
I’ve had good jobs too that made good money. That requires an honest resume (honest with times/date, and FULL of hyperbole/spin for skills and abilities – listing everything and making each sound really important), as well as having a emotionally transparent yet self-confident-almost-to-the-point-of-boasting-without-boasting enthusiastic honesty . It’s a hard mix to describe properly but what I’ve seen of your personality on here, I think you understand what I mean really well ’cause I think we’re the same type.
