If you could take5minutes to answer these questions, and let me know how I'm doing as a friend, I'd appreciate it!

  • What’s your unique brand of sparkliness? 
  • What does s/he/they admire about who you are and how you show up in the world?

Why does Heidi think you rock?
You're sensitive. You are responsive to your own feelings and the feelings around you, a lot like my sister is. In a world where people are taught to hide their feelings and not care, not offer up any of themselves, you let bits of the tenderness of your heart show through. It makes you more real to people like me, and is the beginning of what sets you apart, enabling a lot of your other distinctive qualities, like your perception and your thoughtfulness.

What’s your unique brand of sparkliness?
Your ability to look at things and see what's there, and to keep looking at it even when you think you know it - that's rare. I don't do that, most people don't either. It's a kind of wisdom I can't emulate because I don't know how you do it.

What does Heidi admire about who you are and how you show up in the world?
You and [personal profile] maeritrae and [personal profile] elucreh were the people who showed me how this trusting internet buddies thing worked. I did not used to be a very trusting person, when I look back. Not being afraid of people is not the same thing as trusting them, and if it weren't for you guys I might still not know that difference. So thanks for that.

You guys offered me bits of personal information and asked me for personal information in return. You showed me how to feel out those boundaries, where the people who taught me how to person were pretty suspicious. I developed healthy boundaries with you guys because we were part of [Unknown site tag]'s commenters, and held to standards of respectful discourse. We all grew up on the internet together. It was sort of a second childhood, much better than the first one.

I should make you a friendship bracelet. :D

It does not sound like it would be ideal, no. Well, not unless you had good answers preloaded when the questions come, but that would negate the flexible open-mindedness of the ability.

At least you've found a way to use a weakness as a strength? You made your lack of self-confidence into a way to challenge your perception filters for the universe. You should write a book on how to do that so that scientists can use their powers of angst and social awkwardness for SCIENCE!!
