I compartmentalize. I throw people away when I feel like they don’t understand me. …When I feel like they would rather make up stories about me than get to know me.
Sometimes it works in my benefit. I save myself a lot of heartache, frustration and pain.
At other times, I feel it might cause me to end up alone.
…Alone, frustrated and in pain.
I don’t want to throw people away, but I also don’t want to get hurt.
Here’s yet another balancing act that I’ll be forced to master if I want to be happy.
