I’m very proud of how independent I am. I never want to depend on another human being for happiness ever again. But I can’t help feeling that maybe I’ve come to that point in my life where I’m pushing people away because of how bad it hurts when they decide to walk away.
There has to be a balance between the two extremes and it’s proving difficult for me to find it.
Sometimes I wish someone would see it and just grab me by the hand and show me, but I know this will never happen. Most people can’t find the balance for themselves.
It is, after all, best to learn these things on your own.
