accept you may appear quite stupid to someone sometimes
If you appear stupid, the other one may ask him/herself if you really are stupid or not. And so should you. Yes, it hurts, but, let's face it, you should always be honest to yourselft. Whatever, whenever. Because it's better to understand and accept than deny it.
Well, I'm in a good mood today, am I not? #%$^%$^*&$*^%
