|here and here|
I've been closed off for a while now. I've been closed off to the idea of letting anyone new into my life. I've been happy with the people I surround myself with currently; they are good to me, and I am good to them in return. They have always treated me well and loved me and supported me. So I keep the small handful very close to me and keep everyone else away with a steel and concrete wall a million miles thick.
But recently, I've noticed that I'm becoming more open. I'm OK with meeting new people, and I'm slowly realizing that new people may become a fixture in my life. I'm OK with entertaining the idea of hanging out with a guy (see what I did there? Kind of OK with thinking about the fact that maybe it's OK...doing is another story.) I'm open to new experiences and being brave and trusting others and getting back to the me that believes people are good and sincere and here to help, not liars and cheaters and jerk face jerks.
I'm getting there. It's a process, but I'm getting there.
Acceptance is key. Accepting me how I am, knowing where I want to be, and getting myself there.
Like I said, process.
But I will say...I'm REALLY starting to enjoy the ride again. FINALLY! This life, it's a good one, friends. A really really great one actually!
Have an awesome day!
