For the last ten years I've been working on an ambitious project and I have been doing that largely on my own. I would like to attract other people into my life who add more enthousiasm, creativity and joy to the project. So far, however, I have been locked in a downward spiral: the common reaction to my ideas is either "too weird" or "brilliant, but inconsistent with my beliefs or goal".
The reason why I persist to continue this thread is that it helps me confront and clarify this pattern. I believe that confrontation and clarification of this pattern will help me to destroy and replace it. Then I will be able to join forces with other people effortlessly.
I am sorry if some of my remarks appeared to be directed personally at you or your beliefs. That was not my intention at all. Thanks for your help so far!
It's all good
This is a PD forum and we're all human
just trying to figure out what the *bleep* is going on, it's easy to get the wrong end of the stick
Good luck with your project
