And it was a really, really strange kind of power?

Like, if it was the kind of thing that anyone you showed it to was instantly...well, they suddenly wouldn't like you as much anymore.

I think that would be a kind of freakish and weird and horrible thing.

Why wouldn't "they" like you as much?

What kind of "Super Power" are we talking about, for example?

Interesting fun thread WD..

I'll have to say that I DO have a Super Power and that people don't always like me as much because my super power is God.

Sometimes I think though what if I were a SUPER power...that would be freaky. There would be lot's of dead bodies (and I say that in jest)...the world wouldbe in big trouble if I were one.

This thread is cute, like a conversation held in a tree house.

You could use it to end relationships without having to summon the courage and worry about hurting someone. But that's cheating isn't it?

In Greek Mythology there is a story about a woman named Cassandra.

The weird thing about her is that she had the gift of prescience--she could know what was going to happen in the future.

But, the story goes, she was cursed by the God Apollo such that her predictions would always be disbelieved.q People actually think she is nuts.

For example, she tried to warn people about the "Trojan Horse" and the impending fall of Troy.

I think that is a really weird power--the power to never be taken seriously when you are correct about some really important matter.

That happens in life. That's probably where the myth came from.

Hi Guest,

Now that makes a heck of a lot of sense.

Specially, if it was about rats getting into the house.

This one has been bothering me for about a year.

I think maybe I have this weird power. I suppose it is really more like a knack, or a sensibility, than an actual "super power." But it has some creepy "super" aspects that kind of creep me out.

I am sure I didn't always have this power.

Sometimes I notice that apparently "ordinary" people have...something special about them. They are "differently abled."

They have..."something," a knack that fits with what they truly, deep in their hearts, really want to be and really want to do.

And it feels like I can "see" how those people could fit into situations with other "differently-abled" people to accomplish amazing things. "Super" things.

I think maybe my super-power is the ability to discern other people's secret super-powers.

Last year, I was all excited to discover this peculiar thing about myself.

This year, I am depressed about it.

See, most people don't want to be super.

They don't want to be free.

They don't want to fly.

The very idea is threatening to their own self-image, and their image of what the World is.

So I am trying to think of ways to use my power that seem less threatening to people.

Ways to ease them into flying, so that they barely notice they are doing it until it is too late--until they realize they are soaring!

WD -

Perhaps too many other non-'differently - abled' people saw the
'differently - abled' as threatening to them...and that made them not want to be free, or want to fly, or be 'different'. Perhaps they just want to blend in as much as possible so that people would like them, not be frightened by them. Maybe it gets very lonely being 'differently-abled".

Then, there maybe others who want to exploit their 'differently-abledness'.

Have you ever tried discerning your own super-power and applying this to yourself?

Like what if it were some really obscure super power? like the uncanny ability to perfectly fold form-fitted sheets? or always having exact change? or yes...you have the power to locate any lost sock.

I suppose I'd try to make the world a better place with it...and make a small profit here and there. ; )

LOL with glittered!
Oh yes...and hang the sheets out for all to see and say "MY sheets have a higher thread count and patterns no-one can get. Wouldn't you love to have these sheets?"

I always have the exact change. I just have to dig around a bit to find it.I spare it when people ask!

Hi Glittered,

Now the ability to fold form fitted sheets would actually be useful.

Even better, would be the power to put those sheets on the bed the first time.

I always put the sheets on the wrong way round at first. I tug at them and can't figure out why they aren't long enough. Then I turn them, and they still don't fit!
