It's funny. While reading this I started thinking that I must be an odder duck than I realized. I am pretty sure I have always taken responsibility for my thoughts and feelings. I suppose I got some of this through my upbringing and education, but really, who else is there to take responsibility for them? Similarly, I have never felt the need to clarify my feelings because, it seems to me, the feelings make themselves perfectly clear. As for insight, I just try to pay attention to what's going one.
