It’s hard being emotionally detached when these feelings keep coming around uninvited.It’s not specific feelings we want to avoid; it’s all of them. Ecstatic? That sounds like a lot of energy.

My loneliness has nothing to do with being alone. I’m realizing. My loneliness is from losing him. As a friend. As a lover. As a person in my life.
