                Hahaha. I read the answers. It's funny. Basically I'm a avoidant personality who's unhappy.

                I hate psychoanalysis. One of my professors (I'm in school for Counseling) is big into psychoanalysis. He's the type if you shift your body during a mock session he'll mark you as being emotionally uncomfortable with the conversation when in reality it's because, yeah you are uncomfortable... those damn plastic chairs kill your back!

                  Haha Jessica that is funny!!

                  ~Side story: One of my best friends was dating an older guy whose mother was a therapist or something. Anyway he ended up breaking up with my friend and when he did he gave her this whole written speech that was clearly written by his mother. He said things like "While I respect and acknowledge your feelings, I feel that your constant attachment to your mother shows that you are harboring feelings of retraction towards childhood. I just don't feel that this could ever work between us." LOL.

                    Wow. That is... something else!

                    I would totally keep that note forever and pull it out whenever I needed a good laugh.

                    PS. Ironic there's a line about a constant attachment to her mother when his mother clearly influenced the content of the note. Ummm, smells like projection to me.
