It's a wild combination of inadequacy, wanting to be accepted, and
complete confidence, quasi-forthrightness, and the will to power.
I've realised that this may even be a moral play in my head, and less
about what I perceive things to be or how they even are, 'cause
clearly, the former can change by the minute, and the latter is just
what it is, and while I'm often wrong, I am also often right.
That is the stream of my consciousness.
