I don’t do fear very well. I try to push the people I love away. I worry that I’m not allowed human weakness, that this makes me not good enough, less attractive as a partner. And I may have met someone who can’t be pushed away and I know I cannot be pushed away and I want to say, “Don’t you see?” and I would be talking to both of us.
