"Adjective and noun associations are worthy of our consideration because by careful linkage of words such as 'black' with strong emotionally positive words (such as in 'black heavens' and 'noble black night') we can start to program subconscious bias from the brain by creating a background neurochemistry that is more positive. This keeps the prefrontal cortex more fully operational and encourages more empathy in both thoughts and behaviours. Thus society develops better through their own choices and evolves. This is part of social evolution and this kind of awareness in writers is essential."
"When we make daily choices that are emotionally indifferent, the sort that the money-nexus makes faux-virtues of, we build our capacity for emotional indifference at the direct expense of our capacity for empathy, and thus the conflict between money and love is laid bare."

You can be a bit clingy, sure, but you are also trustworthy, loyal, cheerful and sparky. When treated right, you are the best friend a person could wish for. When trouble comes you have a tendency to withdraw and be submissive, yet during that withdrawal period you figure out unique and creative solutions that elude others. It is the way of the natural peacemaker, to take a step back from conflicts, see the bigger picture and attempt to solve the root of the problem. It takes all sorts to make the world go round. "Clingy" has been stigmatised, as have the more "dependent" types, but in that these benefits are overlooked. So be aware of your impact on others, they have their own lives, a need for time alone, a need for time with other friends and family. Honour that. Stay true to your values and you'll be alright. Being a good hearted person counts for a lot. After all, there are a lot of "Shreks" out there, and they need to meet "Donkey," right? They need the friend who stays with them as a steady and warm light, one who proves to them that love is real.
