Do I make a pest of myself here, like I am in need of constant reassurance?

Please be honest, at times I feel like some puppy that follows around and gets constantly under foot. And, I've realized I do this in flesh and blood life as well.

Please don't feel inhibited if the answer is yes, I am just looking for ways to relate more appropriately with people, and no answer would offend me.

1. I would bet that, to varying degrees, we all look for reassurance, validation, recognition.

And I don't think that there's anything wrong with that!

3. Nope

If you need a little reassurance or validation, I'm glad to offer any I might have. You are good with me.

4. Not at all

As HS said, your honesty and openness give us all an opportunity to grow- not just you. I'm happy this group was here for you when you needed it most and we will continue to be here, in part, thanks to you.

5. Nope.

I don't see you posting anything off-topic or uninteresting. I enjoy reading your threads (here and elsewhere) and seeing what happens.

6. No, and we ALL need reassurance.

We're happy to hear how everyone is doing, and to help when/if possible.

8. Thanks everyone.

I guess it's my own insecurity talking to me ... Ruh roh, those dreaded "voices in my head".
