Yeah, that kind of self-confidence and unique worldview can be really intimidating huh?

Intimidating ?? Not in the least.

Sounded like someone who has found a healthy way to deal with life instead of getting ripped and hiding in her flat feeling sorry for herself.


On a side note, the use of the word intimidating reminded me how often people confuse obnoixous and/or aggressive behavior with self-confidence, and then like to say they're alone because they intimidate people with their "self confidence" when in fact they push people away with their aggression
