omg is it that simple?

I had an awesome day today. I got no writing done, but I spent the entire day with friends. With a visiting WC…and then at a surprise birthday for an old friend.

I realized: I need good people and amazing friends in my life.

I hole myself up because I’m sick of getting hurt and being neglected. Not consciously, but I do it. But that recalls Robert Frost’s “Mending Wall”–what am I keeping out?

  1. I do the same, so… so this post makes me think.

    Hi to WC!

    I’m happy to hear you had an awesome day.

    A visiting water closet, woo!

    I’m so glad your party was fun. For me, lots of thoughts about friends and good vibes on this trip; I’m glad I can give some back, because you and recently many others have been giving me so much.

    Hi, Nova!

    Jade, it’s easy to hole up like that, especially for introspective/introverted/writer/artsy types. And then being around invigorating, wonderful others is such a good reminder about how much we need good friends (and need to be good friends to others).

    I was reminded of this same thing last week and felt so blessed to be among good folks.

  4. Definitely. But it’s hard to get out when you’re stuck in a cycle of “holed up”/”I’m working!”
    which gets me more stuck in the “*sniff* no one loves me”/”I miss grad school” loop.

    * must try not to be grinchly*
