Not wanting things.

I feel like a lot of people's dissatisfaction in life comes from wanting things that are unnecessary or unattainable (based on their circumstances). Being able to to not care about those things makes my life a lot easier than others.

So yall don't enjoy sex or you just don't like all of the things that come with it. I felt like that when I was single. I was celibate for years at a time just because. It gave me a sense of peace and a clear mind.

as much as i don't give my self credit, patience with details and in teaching people/kids. 

the former: i can be meticulous and i have to dose it out at appropriate times. to me, a stitch in time saves nine. i do well at presentations, art projects, proofreading/editing, processing documents from beginning to end... i want a finished product i can be proud of. 

the latter: since i was a child, i would be volunteered by teachers to assist the "slower" kids in class. they would "get it" and that blew my mind. to this day, it's a personal policy of mine to keep it simple and always have a (real) life example/parallel on standby. 

overall, i'm good at motivating/encouraging people and keeping them trying.

Well I'm a virgin(or maybe a half virgin lol), but yes all the things that come with it, or possibly come out of it just seems like too much at this time for me. Believe me I never thought I would be or planned on still being a virgin at 22. You're right about the peace and clear mind.

Two of my besties were virgins until their 30's. One just lost hers a while ago and the other is still a virgin. So your'e not alone. I think its good that you thought it out and didn't just jump into it like alot of people your age.

When people tell me I can't do certain things and I prove them wrong....I'm pretty good at that.

I'm also good at letting go of bullsh*t relationships/friendships that aren't serving my higher purpose and sucking my energy. Learning to do that didn't come overnight, it was a process I had to learn on my own that others are still trying to work on.

I'm good at trying my best to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Out of everyone in my family, I'm the only one who hasn't suffered from obesity. I think I learned well from members who preceded me in death from such things as high blood pressure & diabetes.

Combination of things. I don't get sexual feelings/urges unless I'm in a serious serious relationship and even then it's more for hugging/touching than actual sex (so far this has only happened with one person in my life even though I've had many sexual partners).

Also, sex is weird/embarrassing to me. Like I just really don't understand people's pursuit of this fleeting physical sensation, especially because it involves so much exposure of self and not being in control. I don't know quite how to explain it.

Plus it's sort of gross and doing it without risk of diseases and babies is too much work. Easier not to do it at all.

Hm.. Im good at creative/artsy things. I love to make clothes, costumes, etc

Im good at observing people and body language. I might over think a lot of things but I'd rather be like that than completely oblivious and not realize when someone doesnt like you or doesnt want to talk to you. I feel so embarrassed for people when they dont pick up on things like that

Fishing for sympathy or compliments. Some of the older women I work with are like that and its so annoying. Suck it up and keep it moving! I dont like fake sympathy or sympathy in general. Rarely will you ever hear me complain about something. Life is too short to sweat small stuff. Why ruin your mood over the most dumbest problems?

I felt the same way. I enjoyed it but I could do without it if I didn't have a serious monogamous partner. I got to the point that I used to associate sex with disease and pregnancy more than pleasure and that made it easy to be celibate for me.

I don't think I have any special gifts. All I can think of is that there isn't an ounce of cattiness in me. I'm very genuine in my feelings and thoughts. I've learned over time to cultivate the art of the comeback though because some people associate that with weakness. Just enough to protect myself.

ditto on both counts. 

with the bolded, i find that it's not as well received as i'd like it to be at times. people will come at me as though i'm being extra or fake. and i'm like no, i really am that genuinely nice/thoughtful/etc. 

then i had to develop the latter. shame that it has to be that way.

hmm....

-self-control 
from not acting out "in anger", or participating in self-destructive behavior...and eating/living a healthy lifestyle...etc...it is truly a blessing...
-enjoying my own company...not rushing or even wanting to get married by a certain age/or start a family....avoiding that like the plague.... 

-viewing things from a supernatural/bigger perspective and not just in the natural...

-not catching feelings or getting easily offended...i look at the whole picture..(i.e. tone, intent, etc) and try to see where that person is coming from

-thinking for myself/not conforming with what "society says/thinks/operates"

- not entertaining useless drama/gossip/reality tv shows

- cutting people off....southern just reminded meLOL
if you're causing me more problems than good...gone. 
dont care how long ive known ya...i dont believe in keeping toxic people around...


-and def this below...
