Wow, thanks for writing that down! I'm a 5w4 or 4w5, can't figure it out, but one thing's for sure, I haven't accomplished much either. I'm only 23 though, so I guess I still have a lot of time, but the thought of continuing the way I do scares the crap out of me! I can never stay with anything long enough to get anywhere. If I stray to my intellectual/objective side for too long I feel like I'll go crazy if I don't give my brain a rest. The world suddenly becomes this never-ending ball of intricate lines of thought that become too tiring to study anymore. But if I go too deep into feeling, I feel good for a while and then that's too overwhelming and icky feeling. But you've inspired me to just do something. Anything. I'll set a goal that seems amazing, even if it doesn't come from my heart. I'll strive to accomplish it in the name of preventative measures. Because if I fail and end up driving around the same circles in my head thirty years from now as I do now, I won't be able to handle the shame I'll feel. I'm sorry, I hope I haven't offended you, but you've really shaken me up.
