You know that line, “It’s not you, it’s me”. And, how it is always followed with, “I need some space”.Well … it is me and sometimes, I need some space. I thought it best to ignore this tendency of mine. I thought that if I could give myself small moments of space daily, that I wouldn’t feel the need to retreat or hide for bigger chunks of time. I thought that if I could place more emphasis on my positive thoughts, if I acted out my gratitude and happiness, then the need to retreat would not occur. After spending three days in bed and five days hiding from the world, I am forced to acknowledge that this actually may be a part of who I am.
