I don’t know if this makes me more drawn
to connection.
I am an introvert.
But I spend most of my day communicating.
Directing my team. Checking in with customers. Reporting our progress.
But that’s just a job.
I am divorced.
We had a boundary-less, codependent marriage.
I was the one who was afraid of intimacy.
Connection
After this?
I just don’t know.
I am not a proactive initiator.
I don’t keep up ongoing relationships
over the phone.
But nobody really calls me either.
It would be nice to talk to
someone.
I just don’t know if I could make
the connection.
