     This is a true, somewhat convoluted story that I was told a while back. I left out some facts for the sake of simplicity and avoiding, as much as possible, any extraneous issues. The man who…Continue

Victor replied to Chris Hopkins's discussion Intimidation by other men
"Sometimes other men are intimidating but I find over time that I am much less driven by the need to compare myself to others. My lot in life is not to be rich, accomplished, of high status, or particularly outstanding in any way. More and more I…"
