i’ve been trying to wrap my head around something in these past couple days. bumping into alcohol again makes me feel pretty badly about myself, which is irrational, i know, but so it is anyhow. i feel like mud.
but then someone said something so SO nice about me, something I am very very proud that could be said about me, not simply because i believe it to be true.
she commented on how strong my support was. and it is. when i love someone, i plant my feet and lean out over the water and face the hurricane down. i really fucking do. and i deeply feel that the people that i love deserve the best that there is. and anything else is unacceptable. it is deeply true and whether that friendship is virtual or not, i fucking think that my people are absolutely golden orbs in the world.
and many of you reading this are those orbs. and when i find someone in need of my support, i plant those feet again, or bring my ass right down to the ground, open my chest and send them all the light and love and fierceness that they need. and most of the time, it is felt. almost always. because the energy around me shifts and the energy of the whole world shifts when that sort of love is shot out.
So what i’ve been grappling with is this… how is it i can feel so lonely but feel so connected? am i waiting for crises to happen to get that connection?
also, it makes it a little bit difficult with the number of people coming in and out of my life as i date. mostly, i will only date them if i feel this love… and i grow this love like the best green-thumbed organic farmer you’ve ever been jealous of…
its been hard to bump into people who don’t want this fierceness. i fundamentally do not understand. its beyond, ‘well we’re not a good match’… i don’t mind that, at all, its true, so far, every single time… 🙂 however, the abiding, the glowing orb love is still there for me, i still would fill the room with my love for any of them. literally. and i don’t want that to change.
i just wonder about it. what is it?
my heart hurts a little. physically, i mean.
i think with the mud feeling comes resentment, which is always a lie, i think. but while i am being lied to, i wonder where i am in this energy surge. . .
its like a cost-benefit analysis, oddly enough. i’ve just marie kondo’d my bedroom and there is a shit-ton of clothing that is out of my life, and old pillows, jewelry and blankets. gone. i mean, so much so i struggled to lift the contractor bag i filled . and the three or four others… and i’m not feeling the lift yet. i ‘m not feeling the ringing of the bells, just the flat affect of a person who now only owns three pair of pants and two leggings and a lot, a lot of skirts. so whats the cost? a day of work, an hour of dropping off. the benefit? mm. um… huh. i did feel glad that someone is going to be completely psyched to see some of my pants on the rack. i did feel that postponed joy…
huh. so this. all this. i’m wondering. and feeling like mud. while surrounded by you lovely orbs.
and if you are thinking, o, its so nice that she loves all her people, i say this to you in all sincerity… nope… its you. its you, too. you get it, you freaking worthy glow-y orb.
