How's your weekend? Yesterday, it was one thing after another. Job interview, see a famous person shopping in the same store you're in. Then, getting rear ended twice on the way home (their fault, not mine). Today, staying home for a while and catching up on a lot.
We're trying really hard not to end up bitter and cynical forever. You protect yourself and set boundaries where you need to. However, the despair and emptiness is still there. It's a sunny day, and you feel miserable.
On the other hand, you have to get it out in the most non-threatening way possible. It's tough when at times you feel like many people just don't want you around. Some try to be polite. But they really just want you to go away. They don't show any comprehension of what you're dealing with. Or, any apparent concern.
You can't make someone understand. Does that also mean that you don't deserve basic human respect?
