I think a lot of my self-discovery comes when I find myself having negative reactions to things which I don't want to have. I try to step back and analyze why I'm feeling that way about the issue, and what are some rational reasons to feel otherwise.

I have a disconnect between my emotional and intellectual sides, for better or for worse. I'm not entirely sure I'd prefer to have it any other way. It allows me to analyze problems in my life/situations without letting my feelings overwhelm or control me, and it allows me to enjoy my emotional responses without thinking too much about them. I have just enough connection that I can change negative thinking and feeling patterns, and for me, it feels well-balanced.
