with different methods



How many different methods are their really, you’re either yourself or you’re not; after that the only thing that changes is the scenery…

Well, I guess it means not really being yourself and hoping for better results and then when things get serious THEN you can be urself, maybe when the other person is hopelessly in love with you.

i interpreted it as you can choose to be yourself or not, it almost doesn't matter, the only thing you can count on is that you will have to make that choice every time the scenery changes (ie, every time a new person comes along). like any poetry, it's open to so many possible interpretations!

I am not going to try to alter your opinion of the topic, please don’t read it as such, and thank you BTW for not getting offended at my comments.

But, the issue with this…
Quote:

…is, it doesn’t work like one would hope it would. You end up fall into the trap of trying to change to make people happy all the time – love or not - eventually you forget who you really are. Trust me that is a VERY bad place to be in.

(liken ow for me..sort of lol).



Good luck.

Well, I have to say I have had many things said about me in forums and in life, but never has any body said they want to put what I said on their fridge…

Depends on who you ask and when. I have been told I’m the oldest 12 year old that you would ever meet, others will tell you I’m 34; take your pick

What if instead of changing to please others you change to escape having others displease you (mentally, emotionally, etc)?
