We should all know ourselves so well! [but use spell check- I didn't correct any of her typos;-) ]
This is copied from my just turned 17 year old daughter's myspace profile about herself:
I figured out why i'm here. My foundation has built itself up on science and history. Every single belief I have is not 'just because...' I've learned everything through the hardest lessons. Along with encountering people who have no self control. Every belief I have has effected me to get a pretty good grasp of trust. I went from believing in bad luck to knowing that I have a beautiful gift. What people fail to relieze is that we are not invinsible, as long as you're a human being you can lose control. That we all connect in some way shape or form. And we are all under the same bright, yellow sun. I listen, comprehend, and understand things easily. I enjoy the complexity of things. As well as diversity. I'm trying to be nor selfless. The older have a greater understanding of the way I envision things.
Honestly, it's all about the quality. The quality of everything.
Relationships: So, I'm not like any other teenage girl. I honestly and sincerely do not want a boyfriend...or girlfriend(haha). I'm happy I'm single. Really, I just would enjoy a good guy friend. So don't try to date me, because you're just going to waste your time because i'm not interested. All I really need are the friends I have already. The whole "boyfriend-girlfriend" thing just complicates and eventually, at my age, time will just drag on.
"You do not need to be loved, not at the cost of yourself. The single relationship that is truly central and crucial in a life is the relationship to the self. Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will never lose."
