Well,I was just wondering.... Do you think that you are at peace with yourself(consience,soul,etc.) Can you sleep at night? I know this will schock you and surprise you,but I can.I (almost) always do as my consience tells me to do and I can say that I am at peace with myself. What about you?

If you can't sleep at night, then you're *probably* too uptight. I used to worry about all the little things and would not be able to sleep much at night. Then I said, "Fuck it," and stopped worrying.

Will all the bad things I've done I'm surprised I can still sleep at night.

Sometimes I can't sleep at night, but it isn't because of bad things weighing me down. Sometimes I just simply lie awake thinink and wondering about things like the future and whatnot. I'm not worried, just wondering.

Am I at peace with myself? No I'm not, there's always parts of me that want to approach a problem in a different way, parts of me that question the morality of a certain course of action. Broadly speaking I suppose you could separate these parts into good and evil. I don't think it is good for a person to be completely at peace with themselves, to never question before acting. People talk about peace and tranquility as if they're something to be sought after but our lives are defined by conflict and its resolution, by the movement of ideas, morals and perspective. To be at peace would mean that a person only has one side of any argument, that they have no other perspectives in their mind and that they never chance. Their life has to all intents and purposes reached its end, and to me that person is blind to the living world. Can I sleep at night; does that lack of 'peace' trouble me? Yes I can sleep, very well infact, and no it doesn't trouble me. Sure if I look back there are things that I might have done differently but the past is not something that I'm going to beat myself up over. Once I've actually done something there's no point in feeling bad about it.

Peace is such a wide term

you ask if I can sleep at night: yes I can

but that doesnt really prove that I am in peace with myself, because Im not. Infact I could'nt be more worried about my actions and things that I do. I will rather stay for myself than with others because I dont like how I act ect ect ect.

main point: No Im not in peace with myself

I don't usually do things I know I'll end up regretting. I always do what I think is right, at least when it comes to "big" decisions. I can certainly sleep at night. I might beat myself up for a few days after doing something stupid, but I usually realize doing so is completely pointless, so I quit. I would say I'm at peace with myself.

I am at peace with my self. I know that the past is the past. Thinking about it won't change it or make it better. I think about the future, not the past. Yeah there are things I regret doing, but that is the past.
