Sometimes I marvel at how this species has survived so long under the direction of men. Good grief.
I’m not sure I really know how to friendship. It’s been a recurring theme for quite some time now, I realize, and I’d apologize for it – but I’m not really sorry, so what would be the point?
Anyway, I just can’t find the balance at all. If I keep quiet and listen, I’m distant and disconnected…or – those aren’t quite the right words. I feel closed off because I am putting all of the focus on another person. If I babble on too much about myself, I feel selfish.
It just never feels balanced to me, this whole relating to other people thing.
And I’m strangely okay with that, actually. For the moment, at least!
