I guess you could say that my pull-no-punches, no bullshit, objective views of myself are a rejection of the notion of deluding myself. I do not comfort myself with lies about myself. I give myself absolutely no leeway, and no compliment whatsoever. I don't want to live lies. I don't want people telling me that I'm x good thing or have x talent when I clearly don't. Unfortunately, a strict adherence to the truth reveals that I am indeed ignorant, unattractive, undesirable, and a failure.
Mindset, mate. Mindset.
Facing 'the truth' without leaping into denial takes guts. There you go. One positive attribute off the bat.
Continuing on despite what you considere an undesireable 'reality' takes bravery and power of will.
And I appreciate no-bullshit attitudes in general.
Just do me a favor. Don't jumble delusion and hope into one mess. They may seem similar at times, but one is hard to hold onto yet worthwhile, the other is easy to aqcuire but holds you back.
