A friend of mine says I accentuate my flaws too much without showcasing the positives about me. This is what she says:
But you're not showing them who you are, you're just listing perceived flaws about yourself, which most of them are not really about you. You are not your job. You are not your apartment. You are not your messy truck. You are not some staunch hardcore atheist who won't have discourse about Jesus or Buddha or Gandhi or Allah or Muhammed or Ganesh or Whothefuckever. You are actually NOT ambivalent or without ambition or drive, it's just that right now all your ambition is focused on being the best damn Dad in the world for Brad. But you are not just these things. You're also a really sweet guy who, if I asked him to right now, would jump in his truck and drive three hours without a pause to consider having to go to work tomorrow if I told him I needed him. You're the guy who quotes Stephen King and Ray Bradbury and Kurt Vonnegut and John Steinbeck and... remind me another time soon that your choices of favorite authors is very male-centric. Anyway... you're the guy who is passionate about making his woman feel adored and beautiful and cherished and safe. You're the guy who is so damn funny I have practically choked laughing at his jokes and stories. You're the guy who may not have the greatest job in the world but damn if he won't drag himself to it day in and day out to keep the fridge full for a growing boy with a very healthy appetite.
