But this ego thing is a thing that claws at my attention. And when that doesn’t work, whines like a overtired toddler. And when that doesn’t work drips constantly like a Chinese torture technique.
So what if someone doesn’t like me?
But what have I ever done to them? I’ve been nothing but nice?
You’ll never know. And knowing probably won't help you.
But I’m such a nice person.
If a severely whiny one.
Yes, necessary. So this feels uncomfortable. Watch the discomfort. But from a distance. Know that you are not the discomfort or the person that was recreated in that person’s head that they’ve decided not to like. You are you. They are them. And we are allowed to feel about other people how we feel about them.
