‘There’s nothing happening here.’
‘You’re just imagining things.’
‘You’re too sensitive. Too intense.’
‘Why are you so upset?’
The logical, rational one says, after off-loading sh*t.
But what if
something is happening here?
and it’s you, that’s just not seeing it?
Maybe it’s not me that’s too sensitive, too intense
but that your own motivations are too raw, too tender, too painful for you
to look at, straight on,
dead in the eye
and say ‘yes, I have a need that I fulfil through you’.
Being in denial isn’t truth seeing or truth speaking.
Unkindness masking as rationality.
Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
And if you can’t see it, that’s your limitation, not mine.
