i'm very surprised at what holds me back. a couple of days ago, i was the last person to jump up to save my friend from a fistfight that he got himself into (thankfully the rest of my friends got him out by the time i reacted).
on the other hand, today, i almost wrote this comment on someone's blog:
i'd love to give you some constructive criticism, but i doubt it's possible for you to construct anything. i suggest you learn to think, and then learn to write.
i even got as far as opening the comments page on his blog...the thought that finally stopped me from hitting submit was the fact that i could restrain myself from jumping into a fight (i hate violence) even when it was my friend's safety at stake, but i can't restrain myself from hurting someone just because i thought his posts were crap.
