How are you? I haven’t seen you since last week and I wanted to make sure you’re ok.
I was just talking to Inspiration and they asked how you are doing. I wish you two would hang out more. I know she’s not really your vibe though. Plus, groups aren’t really your thing. You’re more of a 1-on-1 type.
Well sort of, I know you hang out with Fear and Melancholy a lot. So maybe you’re just a little picky.
It’s ok, I tell people all of the time they have to be really picky with their friends. Though I admittedly wish you’d be more willing to hang out with Happiness or Anger.
It’s like you think you can’t co-exist with others. That their presence will annihilate you. Or that they all secretly don’t like you.
Ok, this might be a little hard to hear, but you do have a tendency to monopolize the conversation. I know you just want to be understood, but sometimes you don’t give enough space to others.
So maybe others are also afraid that your presence will exhaust or annihilate them?
I know this is also hard to hear, but I think if you provided more equal back and forth, you’d get along with others better.
I suppose this is probably better for in-person conversation, but sometimes you spiral and don’t fully listen when we discuss difficult topics. So I thought maybe a letter would give you enough time to slowly digest what I’m saying.
Please know I care about you and that’s why I am taking the time to tell you these things. I value you in my life and want to maintain a healthy relationship.
If you’d like to talk in person, let me know. I can even bring our friend Patience if that would help.
Thank you for reading. If you’d like to read more, sign up for my FUNletter.
