"Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth."

Out with the old, in with new. It's as natural as breathing.

Of course, if you think about it that's a somewhat logical comparison. Breathing; taking in new air and removing old air in a constant cycle. If we do it all the time with our bodies, why is it so hard to do with our minds?

Why are we trapped into familiar dark thought spirals or bad habits? Why must we be comforted by old routine?

In any case, that's not the point of this. The point of this, is for someone to make a judgement of me based upon barely enough words to describe mundane things like rocks and clouds. How do you define a person?

Enough with your endless questions! I hear you say. Well, alright then.

 - Call me Ben.

 - I hate the thought that I might be unique and alone in the world, but I fail to connect with anyone on both an intellectual and emotional level. The one person I did find I began to hate.

 - Maybe I'm a little bit messed up, but at least I'm honest about it.

 - I can't do something creative over again without having little anxious attacks of nerves for no good reason. Sometimes this can be amusing to witness, or so I'm told.

 - In my opinion, you have to have balance. As such I have as many dark thoughts as cheerful ones, as as to remain a superficially balanced individual and remain appealing to other people.

 - I'm narcissistic. Sorry.

Anything else you want? Just ask. As long as its not too personal or embarrassing, I'll tell you outright. Remember that it's okay to tell people to shut up when you're no longer interested in what they have to say.
