don't we all do that, in some ways? i'm not saying outright manipulate the system, steal candy bars (ok, i think i've stolen liquor as a teen, but if they sold it to minors, there'd be no need to steal it, right?), act like complete vandals (ok, again bringing up teenage angst), lied (and am completely able to justify all these things in my head).
i think i'm thinking more of my afterthought first.
basically, where is the line drawn? i'm pretty good at 'getting my way'. maybe it's just because i'm so 'darn cute' and everyone's just happy to do it? it does lead me to wonder though, is that me manipulating or people just not minding me doing it?
do you even care? if not feel free to say 'hey, you're pretty darn sweet to me' and i'll be happy with that answer. i've often just wondered about that whole sociopath dx (even asked my therapist if he thought i had it. he said no and laughed, but i decided he just didn't know the 'real' me.). i seem to fit many of the descriptions (or at least feel i do). perhaps it's just guilt?
