  1. I feel you, Christopher. I see it as, I can give the same lukewarm replies to people and they will continue on as if pain wasn’t etched throughout my existence. I don’t expect strangers to catch on, but I catch on to that pain in others quickly. It’s heartbreaking to not have it returned from 1 or a close number of people.

      1. It sure is! When my closest people ask me, I say, “Socially acceptable answer, or honest answer?” That’s also the smart ass reply, though. 😉

  2. I sometimes think that the most powerful thing we can do for another human being is to really see them. I know what it is like to feel like you are drowning behind a calm exterior and how isolating and frightening it is to discover that you have gotten so good at maintaining the facade that even the people closest to you do see you bleeding out all over the floor. Hmm. . .perhaps I have just gotten a little too intense here. Sorry!
