It’s totally weird to realize how much you’ve grown emotionally as an adult.
For all my determination not to let the bastards grind me down, I am not one who enjoys confrontation, even necessary ones. I’m not the most emotionally in touch person and certainly not the most sensitive creature on the planet. There was a time when I would have let bridges completely burn down and simply cut my losses.
But I can’t afford to do that now, and, to my great surprise, nor do I even want to.
