Interesting dream

So, last night I had a dream in which Phoebe had written a book about all the things about me that sucked when I was 19. Of course, I had to agree with a lot of them myself. Sometimes that all feels like a different lifetime.

I do think I like who I am now a lot more than I like who I was then – or, for that matter, liked who I was then at the time. On the other paw, I think I had to go to that place to get to this one – at least I don’t see a process that would have given me the dedication to do the things I need to do that hadn’t gone through some of the unfortunate steps needed to get to this place.

    *hugs* I liked you back when (okay, you were almost 21 then, but still) — and I like you now. We all grow in those years, you know. But you started out sweet, and you’ve gotten better through the years. I like me now more than I like me at 19, too. I think. I had more energy then, but I cared about other people less. There are tradeoffs. Er, anyway, my point was that you have always been a lovely person.

    Hopefully a better dream than your typical. The idea of an interesting experiment we can try with regards to this pops in my head, though I touched upon at least one thing that fits the bill the other day.

    Interesting category choices. Regarding going through the process, we have of course talked muchly about how things would be now if we hadn’t made that first fork.
