What is a self-awareness? When you ask yourself, “Am I aware of who I am?” or “Am I aware of myself?” you are not alone. For the vast majority of the population, the answer is “no.” Most of us are just, well, the way we are. When we stop and look closely, we notice we are not as we think we are.
It’s easy to get stuck in the mindset that we are who we think we are and that we are not ourselves. It’s also easy to blame others for our feelings, thoughts, and actions. But just because someone else is on your mind doesn’t mean it’s you that they are. I’ve known people who were in the military for over 20 years and still had the same personality, thoughts, and outlook on life and yet they were actually quite different people.
For example, I had a buddy who was a computer science major in college and then a software engineer. When he started his career, he went to work for an IT shop and became a systems analyst, then a programmer. Then he sold the company and went back to school and got a degree in computer science. He was always very laid back, but he had a very different personality from the rest of us.
There was a time many years ago when I thought that being a programmer meant being an antisocial jerk. It didn’t even necessarily make me a jerk. I could just be an antisocial jerk and not be the jerk, but my peers thought that to be a jerk I had to be a jerk. I don’t know if they thought that the way I did, but the way I did was to be an antisocial jerk.
It was difficult to imagine life without social connection. I can still remember when I was 13 and I was told that I had to live with a few other teens in the middle of nowhere. I didnt even like my friends that much, but when the summer came and I had to leave my family for the first time, I didnt know where to go. I had no idea where I was going. My friends werent even very close.
This is not about pdrd. Hell, it’s about pdrd.
pdrd is a game that I played quite a bit of when I was in middle school. I remember that I felt like I had to play it, but I didnt really like it. It was like playing a game of chess with someone who does not want to play it. It was also annoying, because I had to play it with a bunch of people who weren’t really interested in the game. I hated it.
That was not the case with pdrd. There were people who were interested in playing it. Most of the time. It was a fun game. I actually learned some things. Most of the time though, I was lost.
I started off playing it as a way to learn the moves and strategy of the game, but after a while I just felt like I was just wasting my time. Then I started making it more of a competitive thing. I got to play a lot of pdrd tournaments. I never really won anything but I was still able to learn a lot.
A lot of the game is really about memorizing the game’s moves, but that’s where the problem lies. There are many ways to learn pdrd moves, but the only way to master them is by playing and competing in pdrd tournaments. Players who are really good at pdrd tournaments, know they just need to find someone who’s really good at pdrd and play them at a tournament.
