TBT in words, not pictures

When I was 6-ish, I would sometimes cover my eyes with my hands, walk around whatever room my parents were in, and purposely (but lightly) bump into furniture in an effort to convince them I’d gone blind. I’d cover my eyes with my hands and say I was blind.

Thankfully they ignored that behavior completely (other than telling me to knock it off), so I wasn’t doing that for long.

Will used to live in Chicago and then switched careers and moved to D.C. to go to Georgetown, where he met his boyfriend. After that, he got a job in D.C. working in his new field, and lived there for a couple of years.

Now they live in Seattle, but he would actually fly here* in two weeks to go to Hot Doug’s with me.

*Only because Hot Doug’s is closing forever in October. He would never say that, though. He’d say it’s because he loves me. Will is a true friend.

Report: Everyone Starting New Exciting Stage Of Life Except You

TT
Nearly everyone else I know (in my age range) started that stage of life about 10-15 years ago and now many of them are getting divorced or are dealing with raising miserable teenagers (their words, not mine), so guess who’s feeling great* about being too emotionally paralyzed after a heart-shattering college breakup to attempt another real relationship over the years everyone else was getting engaged and married and having babies?
Me!
(I’m no longer emotionally paralyzed and haven’t been for almost two years. Thank you, therapy. BRING ON THE ADULT RELATIONSHIP STAGE OF LIFE. I’M READY NOW.)
*This is not to say that I revel in other people’s pain. I definitely do not celebrate any of that. This is about me, and how I’ve come a long way from where I used to be, and that’s what I feel great about.

Filed under Feeling feelings instead of running away from them since 2013 You should try it! It's pretty fucking torturous in both good and bad ways but mostly good And is infinitely better than forcing yourself to be numb just because you're scared of being hurt Feeling things is pretty great For real for real Even when I'm scared I'm into it TT Truthful Tuesday
