2/?? i am currently having a hard time. i might not be able to see friends for a few weeks. i hope my friends will be patient and not misunderstand me. the two things i really hate are unnecessary pressure and feeling misunderstood. – 2/23 and i also know that hate is really just a form of fear...it's true, i do fear those things. i am still unable to see my friends or even spend time with myself in a nourishing way, but i can see some peace and rest coming on the horizon. ...i'm almost there!
