I know that my message seems contradictory in presentation, but many times I have been looked down upon by others (these friends you mentioned)because I lack any recognition. It's not the standing I am interested in but, maybe just maybe it would be nice just once to have someone besides myself believe in me...
I guess that is my main malfunction, as much as I enjoy fighting, I have no one to believe in me. It's kind of a morale know?
I mean I know my wife loves me, and being a part of our relationship is all that I need but sometimes it just feels good to hear her say it... you know what I mean???
